Updated Election Results for Nader/Gonzalez State by State

Tuesday Civics Quiz

Tuesday Civics Quiz .

Gus Speth has written an amazing little book.

It’s titled – The Bridge at the Edge of the World: Capitalism, the Environment, and Crossing from Crisis to Sustainability (Yale University Press, 2008)

In it, Speth – Dean of the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies at Yale University – concludes that if we continue to do exactly what we are doing, with no growth in the human population or the world economy, the world in the latter part of this century will be unfit to live in.

Speth writes that “there were warning signs along the way, but we did not notice then, or when we did, we paid no heed.”

These signs said things like:

We ignored these signs.

Now, according to Speth, unless we take action, we will be toast.

So, the quiz question of the day:

Which of the following Presidential candidates is more likely to heed the warning signs and take effective, timely action to avert disaster?

a) John McCain
b) Hillary Clinton
c) Barack Obama
d) Ralph Nader

The correct answer:

d) Ralph Nader

For his entire career, Ralph Nader has stood up to the corporate polluters and the corporate controlled two-party duopoly to defend Mother Earth.

Of the four, he’s the only candidate who would take nuclear power off the table and put solar energy first.

He’s the only one who would adopt a carbon pollution tax.

It was Ralph Nader and his organizations who were responsible for passage of major federal environmental laws—including the Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Water Act—and were instrumental in the creation of law enforcement agencies such as the Environmental Protection Agency.

But to give the American people a choice in November, we need your help now to fuel our ballot access drives in Illinois, Pennsylvania, California and Virginia.

To give Americans a real choice in November.

To protect Mother Earth.

Vote now for Ralph Nader by giving as generously as you can to this effort to steer this fragile planet to a safe harbor.


We, not me.

Ecology, not economy.

Needs, not wants.

Other, not self.

Again, thank you for your ongoing support.

Together we can make a difference.
