Interview with Ralph Nader

Free Speech TV, 26.02.2004 20:18

“Independent voters are notoriously independent. They don’t like to organize themselves. It’s like herding cats.” – Ralph Nader

‘Get Bush out of office,’ seems to be at the top of most liberals’ to-do lists these days. Consequently, many recovering Nader 2000 supporters are wary, even angry, at the fact that the legendary consumer-rights advocate has announced another run at the presidency, this time under an Independent Party ticket rather than Green. Andrew Dieringer of Free Speech TV caught up Ralph Nader at a convention in New Hampshire on January 11th. In this video interview transcript (edited for clarity and length,) Nader talks about the independent swing vote, preventing 9/11 through regulation, and what it’s like to be called a spoiler candidate.

National 911visibility.org Project (now in 15 cities and 4 nations)

"Across the nation, a growing number of people are determined to discover the truth about 9/11. Citizen-led organizations such as CitizensWatch and the 911Visibility.org Project are trying to give the public a say."
- LONG ISLAND PRESS 02/19/04

"I am no longer ... feeling comfortable that I'm going to be able to read and process what I need in order to participate in writing a report about how it was that 19 men defeated every single defensive system the U.S. put up to kill 3,000 Americans on Sept. 11," said [9-11 Commisioner] Kerrey.
-- Daily News, Feb. 26, 2004

9-11 has been "used" to justify 2 wars and a continual rollback in civil liberties . . . it is time for the peace & justice movement to stand with the brave 9-11 families who are fighting for the truth. What is Bush hiding about 9-11? We deserve to know before one more young man or woman is sent to war, before one more liberty is surrendered to the Patriot Act(s).

Bill Douglas, National 911visibility.org Project

"When we remain silent about things that matter . . . our lives begin to end."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

[National 911visibility.org - covered by Kansas City Star; Long Island Press; University Press; local ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX News affiliates. Radio programs in the U.S. & Canada. 911 truth movement is on the move!!

911visibility.org's last event was co-sponsored by: Benedictine Sisters for Peace, PeaceWorks KC, American Friends Service Committee - KC, Greater KC Fair Trade Coalition, Instead of War Coalition - St. Louis, Wichita State Campus Greens, Kansas City Greens, Lawrence Area Peace Groups, Rolling Thunder Review - KC, All Souls Unitarian Peace & Justice, etc. Co-Sponsorship did not indicate a position on 9-11 widow, Ellen Mariani's case, but an endorsement of the people's right to hear about it.]


********************************

"Sept. 11th, 2001, was the most horrific and yet least examined act in recent U.S. history," said Bill Douglas. Douglas was a co-founder of the 911Visibility.org Project and helped organize Mariani's visit. "We have two wars based on 9-11 and a continual rollback of civil liberties," Douglas said. "We are being asked to give up our sons and daughters to wars because of 9-11." - KANSAS CITY STAR 2/23/04

********************************

Mariani refused the offer. "I'd rather eat dirt," she said. Bill Douglas, a member of the [911visibility.org] project, confirmed the sentiment. "Ellen Mariani could've taken the money and run," said Douglas. "The victims' families, after 9/11, were being trotted out in front of cameras after Sept. 11, because it would be advantageous to getting people geared for war. But, when they had serious questions, they couldn't get a mic. The sad truth about this event is that we shouldn't have to have it. We should be seeing all of this on CNN."

Following Douglas' introduction, Mariani took the stage with her colleague Burg. On stage in front a banner with red letters proclaiming 'the truth would set us free,' she was met with a standing ovation in the church. Mariani told her side of the story; she said that two out of the three lawyers that she consulted about her case sided with the defendants - the Bush administration.

Owens served as a military aide to both Vice President Dick Cheney and former Defense Secretary Frank Carlucci, who now works with George H.W. Bush at the controversial Carlyle Group.

WASHINGTON, DC - DontAmend.com announced today a second national day of rallies on May 17th in response to yesterday's call by President Bush for passage of a federal constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. May 17th is the date the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has said that same-sex marriage licences must begin to be issued in that state, and it is also the 50th anniversary of the date that "judicial activists" on the Supreme Court issued their famous Brown v. Board of Education ruling.

The rules are that the Democratic nomination requires over 2100 delegate votes. As of Feb. 2004, Kerry only has around 700. This is still an open race, and Kucinich has just gotten 30% in Hawaii, with his first set of delagates.

The German people of the late 1930s imagined themselves as brave...The German people were lured into WW2 not because they were brave, but because they were cowards who wanted to be seen as brave, and found that shooting long range weapons at people they could not see took less courage than standing up to Hitler... The American people imagine themselves as brave...assume they are safe from a tyrant, after all, they live in a Republic with strict laws regarding what the government can and, more importantly, cannot do. Their leader is a devoutly religious man.
