I for one am voting for Ralph Nader & Winona LaDuke,
1) because of Nader's record in fighting for good common sense and protecting the people against bullies and unregulated dangers imposed on us by both our own government and ubercorporations.
2)A change must be made in the dual party politics of our capital, and voting for Nader is a statement, as well as a good choice. Washington is not going to change the election, and we are one of the states with a large enough following of Nader that we have the freedom to vote without fear of electing bush by "voting against gore".
This fear-based voting is ridiculous, and I think one of the things we need to change in our voting process is a move towards preferential voting, such that if your first choice is not gong to win, your vote would be shifted to your second choice, and so forth. This system is already in place in Australia, which has a vibrant and working body politic. Another movement which I have heard of, but poses a problem is the "No Quorum" vote. If you did not like any of the candidates[which is mostly just caused by an uninformed voting body] you could vote "No Quorum" or none of the above. UNfortunately this leaves the problem of, well...who is president then? would it create a situation where someone could use the loophole to maintain the presidency forever? This is why I believe in Preferential voting, such that fear would be eliminated from our voting logic.
Thus, I urge you all to go vote. And vote for the rest of the measures and elections on the ballot also, this IS our country, and the least we can do is help decide whom we want to run it. I endorse Ralph Nader & Winona LaDuke, Green Party. Please vote.
