So, I'm reading some book of Nader's and it's actually pretty good stuff. I can never forgive him for getting Bush elected, though. Running as an "issue candidate" does absolutely nothing. Perot is probably the most successful issue candidate ever, and are we doing anything about reducing the defecit? No. The American people are totally retarded and have very short memories, and the media goes right along with that. An issue can be a big stink one day and then it's gone and nothing happens. That's why whenever the government is caught doing something awful, the population gets all upset, so they create some kind of committee to formulate reforms, they go away for a few months, and then everyone forgets about it and nothing ever happens. Issue candidates : save your money, or better yet, use it to lobby, buying votes is more effective than buying awareness.
