Independent Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader and V.P. running mate, Matt Gonzalez, were nominated by the Ecology Party of Florida and will appear on the ballot in November. But will Nader do anything more than split the vote?

Gary Hecker, Treasurer of the Ecology Party, is thrilled with the choice of candidates: “Nader and Gonzalez are the only candidates that truly put the environment at the forefront. Mr. Nader was instrumental in establishing the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the EPA. Nader/Gonzalez will not sell out to corporate interests. I can’t believe that any real environmentalist would support anyone else.”
The Nader/Gonzalez campaign has completed its goal of achieving 45 state ballots, and will be a write-in choice in four other states. Mr. Nader and Mr. Gonzalez are pleased to be allying with a party that has initiative, ecological wisdom, and an eye for the future.
Attorney, author, and consumer advocate Ralph Nader has been named by Time Magazine one of the “100 Most Influential Americans in the 20th Century.” For more than four decades he has exposed problems and organized millions of citizens into more than 100 public interest groups advocating solutions.
He led the movement to establish the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and was instrumental in enacting the Safe Drinking Water Act, the Motor Vehicle Safety Act, the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and countless other pieces of important consumer legislation.
Because of Ralph Nader we drive safer cars, eat healthier food, breathe better air, drink cleaner water, and work in safer environments. Nader graduated from Princeton University and received an LL.B from Harvard Law School.
Nader is well known and he’s done a lot of good. But is doing more harm than anything by running for president? Do the Independents, Libertarians and others merely split the vote?
