CORRECTING THE RECORD: NADER AND THE RIGHT WING
1.Does Nader have anything to do with the announcement of pro-Bush groups that they are going to try to stack his convention?
Answer: Absolutely not. The press reports that two pro-Bush groups are trying to get their supporters to come to the Nader Convention at Benson High School on June 26. The Nader Campaign has had nothing to do with this effort. Those organizing this manipulation may discover to their regret that those that go to hear Nader may become converted to Nader's cause.
2.Does Nader seek the support of genuine conservatives?
Answer: Absolutely yes. Nader has always had a strong appeal to classical conservatives, because his values are Jeffersonian. He comes from a small town and a family business, has fought the government along with big corporations, he stands for government efficiency, ending police state legislation, ending corporate welfare, rejecting trade agreements that destroy American sovereignty, and believes our foreign policy should support ordinary people overseas, while resisting the lure of empire.
Nader regularly appears on right wing talk shows in order to argue that Bush should be rejected because he is not a true conservative. Nader has always believed that he could draw more votes from Bush this year than from Kerry. Nader is on the cover of this month's American Conservative with an appeal to conservative voters, and has been endorsed by the Reform Party, which four years ago endorsed Pat Buchanan.
It is important that people not be confused between Nader's true conservative support, and the intended manipulation by these pro-Bush groups. Progressives should turn out in force at Benson High, June 26, 5-7:00 p.m., because just as it is important that Bush lose this election, it is crucial that John Kerry feel pressure to abandon his support for this disastrous war in Iraq.
