I'm hesitant to consider voting for Nader, because I really want to see Bush out of office. ^^; I'll take Kerry in a heartbeat over Bush. Ideally, knowing Nader's very slim chances of winning the presidency, would be to vote Kerry in and then vote him out, then bringing Nader in.

But even if Nader became president, I honestly doubt he'd stay in another 4 years. Whether 4 or 8 years, I'm willing to bet as soon as he left, a lot of people would be trying to undermine his efforts. :\

voting for Nader in a swing state like Florida is not a good idea. In this case, you are actively contributing to the demise of Kerry, should such be the case..

Voting for Nader in New York, or Texas, or California.. all of that is fine and advisable, should you support Nader.. it is clear who will win in those states, so voting for Nader there is safe and will contribute to his 5%.. however, voting for Nader in a state like Florida where 1) it is clear he will not win, and 2) it is not clear who will win between Democrat and Republican.. it is not something to be done, or not something I would condone..

With someone who is not sure who to vote for, but between Kerry and Nader.. in Florida, I would most certainly plead that you vote for Kerry. He needs you, here.

I would vote for Kerry just to get Bush out of office. I don't think Bush is that horrible of a president, but there are topics that I disagree with him on and his conservative followers are going to demand some things get done.

As for Nader, he hasn't done much for any party he's been affiliated with - it seems like the "name" third party candidates are only there for their ego. It would be nice for someone to get the following for federal funding, but only if there intent is good for the group they're representing.

Nader is TOO left-wing to be good for this country. :/ Much like I think Bush is too right-wing...

People misunderstand my post... I'm indeed voting for Kerry because: a) He's not Bush, and b) I believe he wouldn't lead America into DEATH DOOM DESTRUCTION, and c) obviously is the best candidate to beat Bush.

But I was looking through Nader's website yesterday, and agreed with more than a few of his views on certain issues. I'm still angry at him for stealing the election from Gore in 2000, but on the same hand, I didn't really understand Nader back then, either. I think Kerry and Bush could learn a couple things from him.

I'm sure if Kerry does win this election, but if his performance during 4 years isn't what I'd label "good" or "excellent", I wouldn't hesitate to vote for a non-major-party candidate. Or Republican, if John McCain tried running again. :B It depends.
