Nader: “We Will Not be Marginalized!”
At a press conference, on Sept. 10, 2008, Ralph Nader, an independent candidate for president, charged: “We will not be marginalized.” He was referring to the traditional antics of the so-called “Debate Commission,” along with its cronies in the Establishment media, to keep viable Third Party candidates, like himself, out of the presidential debates. Nader said that the Networks should hold “their own debates” and include Third Party candidates. He also urged a coaliton of veteran groups to do the same. Nader alledged that the rigged present Two-Party dominated system is “a disgrace.” For background, see: http://www.votenader.org/blog/2008/02… The press conference was called by Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) and was held at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Ron Paul’s Campaign For Liberty
The American Majority
The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.
Carroll Quigley – Author of Tragedy & Hope
The coverage of the presidential election is designed to be a grand distraction. This is not new, but this year, it’s more so than ever.
Pretending that a true difference exists between the two major candidates is a charade of great proportion. Many who help to perpetuate this myth are frequently unaware of what they are doing and believe that significant differences actually do exist. Indeed, on small points there is the appearance of a difference. The real issues, however, are buried in a barrage of miscellaneous nonsense and endless pontifications by robotic pundits hired to perpetuate the myth of a campaign of substance.
The truth is that our two-party system offers no real choice. The real goal of the campaign is to distract people from considering the real issues.
