But the $3M shows that regular Americans like you and me do care, and do want something different. Americans deserve a real choice on corporate and foreign policies...

Filmed in Salt Lake City, UT, by Doug Monroe and Rhea Gavry
2008 Presidential candidate Ralph Nader took some time out of his travel schedule this summer to have a conversation Cardozo the Parrot, who lives with Rocky Anderson, former Mayor of Salt Lake City. In this video, you can see Ralph and Cardozo discussing the media blackout and uphill battle faced by third party candidates and independents running for President of the Unites States.
Contribute now to help us try to get Ralph Nader and Matt Gonzalez in the presidential debates:
Major financial institutions declaring bankruptcy, or getting gobbled up by even larger institutions... It's ominous. Got this from Nader this morning:
Bleak Sunday, Momentous Monday, and Nader/Gonzalez Posted by The Nader Team on Monday, September 15, 2008 at 08:37:00 AM
On this momentous Monday, September 15, 2008, we make a simple request.
The prudential choice for 2008.
We woke up this morning early.
Turned on C-Span radio.
And heard Brian Lamb quoting Ralph Nader.
From years ago.
With Ralph warning about extravagance, recklessness, and excessive compensation on Wall Street.
Warning years ago about the undue influence of Fannie and Freddie on Democrats and Republicans alike.
Warning about the failure of our government to protect small investors.
Throughout his career, Nader has strong been a strong advocate for due diligence.
For protecting shareholder rights.
For prudential regulation.
And strict oversight of the markets.
While the Democrats and Republicans have bent to the whims of their corporate masters and Wall Street's bottom line imperatives.
Nader has been steadfast in his advocacy for safety, regulation, and protecting the little guy.
Unfortunately for the nation and for investors, his warnings have gone largely unheeded.
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Kucinich for President campaign late today filed an emergency complaint with the Federal Communications Commission claiming that the ABC television network “is violating its obligation to operate in the public interest” by excluding Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich from tomorrow night’s scheduled debate in Manchester, NH.
Further, the complaint charges, the televised event “is not a true presidential primary debate without including all credible candidates, but instead is effectively an endorsement of the candidates selected by ABC.” The filing also notes that ABC “is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Walt Disney, Co., whose executives have contributed heavily to other Democratic presidential primary candidates, including Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, former Senator John Edwards, and Governor Bill Richardson.”

Twelve Arrested in Des Moines as Obama Campaign Hinders Press Coverage of Protest
by Michael Gillespie for publication
Josh Earnest, Iowa communications director for U.S. Sen. Barak Obama (D-IL), is running scared in the final few days before the Iowa Caucuses. He must be, otherwise he would not have risked the consequences of ejecting half a dozen media workers from Obama's Iowa campaign headquarters on Wednesday, Jan. 2, and barring entry to several more.
Reporters and photojournalists representing news organizations in Japan, Germany, Great Britain, and the USA were hindered in their efforts to report on a bona fide news event when Earnest insisted they work outside in the sub-freezing single digit cold while inside a group of eight antiwar activists from Voices for Creative Nonviolence (VCNV) and the Iowa Occupation Project questioned Obama's positions on the war in Iraq, military spending, and U.S. Middle East foreign policy.
Though he knew who the protesters represented and why they had come to Obama campaign headquarters (this reporter heard an Obama staffer say, "We knew they were coming and we have a plan to deal with them"), Earnest told one Iowa newspaper, "They basically just sort of came into the front office and were talking loudly and being disruptive."
