The American Civil Liberties Union says the expansive powers of border guards is creating what it calls a “Constitution-free Zone” for large swaths of the US. The ACLU says because the government is claiming border and customs powers extend 100 miles inland, many Americans are being subjected to privacy invasions that wouldn’t normally be allowed. The so-called 100-mile “border region” includes nine out of the top ten major metro areas and two-thirds of the US population.

Please think wiser about the effects of a third party. In regards to the 2000 election, don’t just add 2 to 48 to beat 49; it doesn’t work that way. Suggesting that a third party is a “spoiler” is just plain political bigotry. We all have the right to run for president so under the same logic either we are all spoilers or none of us are.

Speaking with Marx in mind, the progression of government under capitalism is purely economical. The democrat and the republican parties are corporate parties. Since the corporation was given “personhood” in 1886, (Santa Clara County v. Southern Pacific Railroad) it achieved the same constitution rights that you and I share. This has corrupted our government beyond any measure, criminal wars, torture, economic depression, the list goes on and on.

To break away from corporate and political slavery, we will need to think and vote different this year. He’s not the president we deserve but he’s the president we need, vote Nader.
