Only in America would a third-party candidate be called a 'spoiler'

Where do people get the idea that there can only be two contenders for the office of president? No other country on Earth thinks this way. Put the candidates out there and let the people choose. Votes are earned. Either every candidate is a spoiler for every other one, or none of them are spoilers for anyone else.

In the 2000 election, 9 million erstwhile Democrats voted for the Republican ticket, but many Democrats still moan about how Nader allegedly siphoned off about a million votes from Gore. Why don't they attack the Democrats that occasionally vote Republican? If Gore had not been such a slave to Wall Street, the Nader phenomenon probably would not have happened.

Nader runs because both major parties are held captive by special mega-corporate interests. He is clear: Either the people will rule, or Exxon and Chase Bank will.
