Face it, Matt. You are the reason that the two main parties are letting
dead wood like Bush and Gore run for the highest office in the land. They
know that deep down, most Americans are too cowardly to do anything but
reflexively vote for their party's candidate, year after year after year
like lab rat hitting the button that dispense pellets. If you simply wake
the fuck up and demand that your party run someone who isn't mildly
retarded or has all the humanity of petrified wood then we wouldn't be in
Don't go pointing fingers at the Nader crowd. Gore DOES NOT OWN THEM.
They are not serfs, slaves or any other class that owes its vote to Bore
like it was a God dammed birthright. If Bore can't convice someone to vote
for him, he doesn't get their vote. Period.
