By: Associated Press

(RALEIGH) -- Presidential candidate Ralph Nader says he believes he can beat George Bush, enhance the political agenda and inspire young Americans to restore democracy.

Nader told about 200 people at North Carolina State University on Thursday that he wants voters to be as shrewd with politics as they are about sports.

He denounced corporate power and says outsourcing will only increase until people declare their independence from the far reach of corporations.

On Iraq, Nader says a multinational military force is needed, along with elections and continuing humanitarian aid.

Nader is also speaking Thursday night in Charlotte in a debate with Alan Keyes, who sought the Republican nomination for president in 2000.

Bring it on. Alan Keyes will smote him righteously in that debate though.

How do we replace corporations? With government products? I'm confused here.

Of course we can't forget the media and leftist mantra that Nader will take more votes from Republicans than Democrats. I nominate that one for most stupid statement of the year.

I would like to see a nuanced critique of Nader. I know of several issue Nader holds that would be contrary to fundamental conservatism.

Anyone know of good sources of info that expose this toad for what he is????

Ok - so internationalism is bad. Participation in the global economy is bad. Making lots of money is bad. Got it.

On Iraq, Nader says a multinational military force is needed, along with elections and continuing humanitarian aid.

Ok - so internationalism is good. Participation in the global politisphere is good. Giving away lots of money is good.

Any questions?

People who are shrewd do not norminally vote for someone who wants the Government to decide what kind of car you should be allowed to drive. Nadar's support seems to come from those who believe that we are destroying the planet by breathing.

Sort of sounds like the same things bin Laden wants---to drive civilization back to the 7th Century (i.e., corporation free).

He wanted to say transcend, but he would lose the 2 voters who understand him up to this point.

Normally I wouldn't suggest sending money to someone who thinks he can beat the president, but in this case dollar for dollar it is money better spent then money sent to the Bush campaign.
