    Two asswipes stuck on 5%. yeah, great choices. Electability is the answer, fringe candidates are a waste of ballot space.

    You can kiss your military spending goodbye. You can kiss your corporate welfare goodbye. You can kiss your subsidy's goodbye.

    Unelectable my fucking ass. No more compromise. No more legal plunder. No more stealing and handing to the rich.

    Either of these two choices would bring fiscally responsible change to government.

    Elect another republican will more than likely bring another financial fraud scandal. Totaling 3. Thus far Reagan/Bush and Bush/Cheney have put 20 million working class citizens out of :

    * jobs
    * out of medical insurance
    * out of life savings
    * out of retirement plans
    * many of them out of their homes

    The nation cannot afford any more Bush thinking republicans!

    Better yet it would be a campaign based on the issues.

    Repubs will turn this election into their RINO circus aka character assassination pushing the substantial issues wayyyyyyyyy to the back burner only to be forgotten. There is at least 31 years of this documented practice on the books.

    Another repub admin will bring another financial fraud scheme thus bringing the total to 3.

    Today, however, hundreds of thousands of our fighting men and women have been stretched thin all across the globe in over 135 countries – often without a clear mission, any sense of what defines victory, or the knowledge of when they’ll be permanently reunited with their families.

    Acting as the world’s policeman and nation-building weakens our country, puts our troops in harm’s way, and sends precious resources to other nations in the midst of an historic economic crisis.

    Taxpayers are forced to spend billions of dollars each year to protect the borders of other countries, while Washington refuses to deal with our own border security needs.

    Congress has been rendered virtually irrelevant in foreign policy decisions and regularly cedes authority to an executive branch that refuses to be held accountable for its actions.

    Far from defeating the enemy, our current policies provide incentive for more to take up arms against us.

    Nader would cut the bloated, wasteful military budget.

    The proposed military budget represents 58 cents out of every dollar spent by the U.S. government on discretionary programs - the items that Congress gets to vote up or down on an annual basis.

    The Democrats and Republicans have been silent about this rapid escalation in military expenditures, despite many critical reports by the Government Accountability Office and Pentagon auditors.

    In fact, they want to increase them.

    As budget analyst William Hartung points out "the United States is already spending more for defense than all the other nations in the world combined."

    Hartung points out that tens of billions of dollars are being wasted on systems like the F-22 fighter plane, the V-22 Osprey (a helicopter that can be transformed into a conventional aircraft), the Virginia class submarine, and an unworkable and unnecessary missile defense system.

    Right now, the military budget is being used to fuel wasteful, reckless, destabilizing foreign interventions that violate constitutional and international law.

    Nader would cut the military budget to a level needed to protect the country.
