    There was a strong base of support for Nader that year. No such base exists this year or four years ago or eight years ago, for that matter.

      in 3rd party politics. The average joe blow would-be voter is sick of this two-party horse$h!t where nothing gets done. Is why they don't bother to vote. And, I can't say that I blame them. Wall Street well aware of that and plays into their hands, beating the drum for "power to the people" politics. The "perfect storm" could be 2016 or 2020, but there's little doubt this Astroturf happy horse$h!t becomes a huge factor in the general election much sooner than later. And, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if sooner becomes 2012 when nobody looking, nobody paying attention. Ron Paul takes the college-age votes away from Obama. Not a bad candidate for "Americans Elect" to send out on that initial run just to get their toe in the water. But whether they do or don't there's little doubt that such an effort happens way sooner than later.
