I hope the media picks up on this aspect of it. The party that claims their members voice wasn't heard is pushing to silence another party. Hopefully it backfires on them and puts Bush on even better ground in Florida.

So they just told their ex-constituents that if they wouldn't vote for Kerry, they'd just take away their right to choose.....

Where have I heard this before......seems like it was mentioned in some government class I took once upon a time.....now what did they call that

What happened to their crying from 4 years ago about disinfranchised voters? Hmmm.

I think they did it because their supporters have a hard enough time with two choices, much less three. Last election they couldn't figure out where the arrow pointed. Lucky that the Republican Voters have no IQ problem. LOL

Desperation is now approaching crtical mass.

They tried to use the courts to manupulate the election AFTER the fact last time, now they're trying to do it BEFORE.

God, these people are DEMENTED.

I'm starting to see the outlines of another Civil War brewing in this nation. It's going to be between the Red and the Blue instead of the North and South.

This story is obviously a lie. The Democrat Party is the party of inclusion and democracy. They would never in a million years limit peoples choices.

TEXAS. They're suing to keep him off the ballot in a state Kerry has no chance of winning anyway. Talk about BITTER!

He's off. He's been booted off the ballot twice already and the court ordered that new absentee ballots be sent out without his name. It was on the news tonite.

True, and if I was Left or Right, I would NOT shift my vote back to the party that had my desired party stricken from the ballot via judicial decree. I would be outraged.



Good point! The Dems have a funny way of putting their own necks on the chopping block this year. Its like they are TRYING to lose this election.

That is pretty fucked up.

you have to wonder at what point folks will take off their blinders to the left's atrocious treatment of mere citizens.

I heard about this great new bi-partisan bumper sticker. It says "Run Ralph, Run!". Republicans put it on the back bumper and democrats put it on the front bumper.

If PA and Florida go one way, its victory.

Nader is no Perot but having said that its nice to see them eat their own young.

If the Democrats had their way, there would only be one "legitimate" party.
