Matthew Rothschild, Corporate Democrat
You have to wonder about self-proclaimed "progressives."
Take Matthew Rothschild, for example.
He’s a self-proclaimed progressive.
He’s the editor of the so-called Progressive Magazine.
He has written an editorial in the current issue (April 2008) of the magazine titled "Don’t Worry About Ralph."
In it, Rothschild claims that "to the extent that there is anything like a progressive movement going on right now, it is foursquare behind Obama."
Rothschild must be plugged in.
The question is - to what?
Nader/Gonzalez have put together a campaign to push for public health insurance (single-payer), to cut the bloated, wasteful military budget, to reverse U.S. policy in the Middle East, to take nuclear power off the table and to put solar energy on the table, to repeal the anti-union Taft-Hartley law, and to impeach Bush/Cheney.
Obama stands with Clinton and McCain against Nader/Gonzalez on all of these issues.
Rothschild says he barely knows "anyone who has voted for Nader in the past who will vote for him this time."
That’s because Rothschild is living in his little viral liberal bubble - where the anti-Nader virus has taken hold and won’t let go.
Visit our website and you will meet voters from all across America - from outside the little viral liberal bubble in which Rothschild is ensconced - who stand foursquare behind Nader/Gonzalez.
They are voting with their donations of hundreds of thousands of dollars for the Nader/Gonazlez democracy agenda.
They are voting with their feet - collecting signatures all across the country to get Nader/Gonzalez on the ballot.
And they are voting with their writing to respond to viral liberals like Rothschild.
It doesn’t matter that you call yourself a progressive, Matt, or that you call your magazine The Progressive.
You are not progressive.
And your magazine is not progressive.
You are supporting the corporate Democrats.
Therefore, you are a corporate Democrat.
Stop deceiving the public.
The Nader Team
