Ok....I just have to repeat what I said to a friend the other day. A friend
(male) who is voting for Ralph Nadar. I find Mr. Nadar an incredible
candidate. But I cannot vote for him. Because as a woman, artist and
educator I have to be a realist. One of two men will win this contest, Gore
or Bush. I dont' think anyone will dispute this. As the thought of Mr. Bush
winning (no offense to any Republican friends on the list) disturbs me for
all kinds of reasons, I cannot vote my conscience. I have to vote for the
person I need to win from the two viable candidates. See the delima? I
agree voting for Mr. Nadar is not a wasted vote. At least it is a vote,
making a decision. I have decided that I need to support someone who has a
chance at being in the office. Perhaps, next time around I can vote my
conscience.
