We Need Roadtrippers
  May 29, 2008

We know what the problem is.
Big corporate control of our political process and of our country.
The question is – what do we do about it?
In November, it’s going to be a four way race for President.
Barr, McCain, Obama/Clinton and Nader.
In the fall run-up to the election, there will be Presidential debates.
And the only way we will have a chance of getting on the debates is to get Nader/Gonzalez on a significant number of state ballots.
Right now, Nader/Gonzalez supporters are on the ground in states all across this country – from Arizona to Pennsylvania, Maine to Alaska – gathering signatures to put us on the ballot.
In Illinois, our team of twelve road trippers is collecting more than 1,000 signatures a day. We’ve just surpassed 20,000 signatures in hand. But we’ve got less than 30 days to collect another 30,000.
In West Virginia, we have a team of seven road trippers that has collected 4,000 in just one week. That’s remarkable.
(Listen here to my audio thank you to our current team.)
Now, we need your help to launch two new road trip crews.
We need a team to take on the warm and hospitable states of the south – states like South Carolina, Alabama and Mississippi.
We need another team to tackle the mountain states of Wyoming, Nevada and Montana.
If you are interested in becoming a road tripper with others, or a road trip coordinator – or to get more info on how you can help, please send an email right now to christina@votenader.org
Nader/Gonzalez is making a major push to get on the ballots of at least 45 states.
To get on these ballots this summer, we need your help.
So, please, if you want a summer job that will challenge your civic skills and your resolve like no other, drop an e-mail to christina@votenader.org
Together we can make this happen.
Onward.
Ralph Nader
 
 
 
 
Nader at No Nukes Protest
No Nukes.
It was the battle cry in a successful anti-nuclear movement Ralph Nader led in the 1970s.
Now, nuclear power is resurgent.
Why?
Because politicians like McCain, Obama and Clinton all want to keep nuclear power on the table.
All three support legislation that would provide government taxpayer subsidies and guarantees to power companies to build nuclear power plants.
Nader/Gonzalez take nuclear power off the table.
Nader/Gonzalez oppose government subsidies and guarantees to the nuclear industry.
The billions are far safer and better spent supporting energy efficiency and solar energy projects than building these nuclear national security risk boondoggles.
Tomorrow (Thursday, May 29, 2008, 12 noon) Ralph Nader and the Nader/Gonzalez team will be outside the nuclear power lobby’s headquarters in downtown Washington, D.C. to call for a halt to the head-long rush to nuclear power.
Once again, we will be saying loud and clear – No Nukes.
Why?
One. There’s no safe place to put the waste. The waste from nuclear power plants will be toxic to humans for several hundred thousand years. Where will it go? Not Nevada. Any other ideas?
Two. Accidents. Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, Browns Ferry, Fermi.
Three. National security. Nuclear reactors present an attractive target for terrorists.
Four. Costs. The average nuclear power plant will cost a average of $10 billion to $18 billion – before the inevitable cost overruns – guaranteed by the taxpayers. Because of safety, security and environmental concerns, the industry can’t find investors to build them, so it is turning to Washington for corporate welfare in the form of subsidies, guarantees and insurance. As the Nuclear Energy Institute puts it "100 percent loan coverage [by taxpayers] is essential … because the capital markets are unwilling, now and for the foreseeable future, to provide the financing necessary" for new nuclear power plants.
Four strikes and you’re out.
McCain/Clinton/Obama want to keep nuclear power on the table and support legislation to subsidize the building of nuclear power plants.
Nader/Gonzalez would keep nuclear power off the table, oppose subsidies, and would instead invest to transform our centralized fossil fuel economy into a decentralized solar energy and energy conservation economy.
Once again, the choice is as clear as night and day.
Bring on the sun.
Stop the waste.
Support Nader/Gonzalez.
The protest tomorrow at the nuclear industry lobby is the fourth in our series of protests inside corporate occupied territory.
If you are in the neighborhood of corporate occupied territory (read: our nation’s capital), tomorrow, please come out and join with us in saying no to nuclear power and yes to a stepped up transformation to a solar energy, energy conservation economy.
If not, please donate now to help put Nader/Gonzalez’ No Nukes platform on as many state ballots as possible.
Thank you for your steadfast dedication and support.
Onward.
The Nader Team
