Those observations have been made over and over. Christopher Hitchens's 
Vanity Fair article, Doug Henwood's latest LBO newsletter, Doug 
Ireland's Nation Magazine article and many others have all tried to 
smear Nader as a rightwinger because he is accepting a Reform Party 
ballot line. Frankly, nobody in their right mind would consider a vote 
for Nader as a vote for the principles defined by Ross Perot when he 
launched this 3rd party. That being said, I think it is far worse to be 
connected to the Democrats than it is to have connections to the Reform 
Party which has never had an elected official--as far as I know. The 
Democrats have on their record:

--bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki
--killing some 3 million Vietnamese
--giving carte blanche to Zionism
--slavery Jim Crow in the south until the early 1960s
--genocide against the Indians under the presidency of Andrew Jackson

By comparison, Lenora Fulani is as pure as the driven snow.
