Gravel/Nader<=>Nader/Gravel 2008 sign now

Since the 2006 mid-term elections, the Democrats have shown themselves to be equally complicit with the Republicans in our illegal war in Iraq. The Democrats no longer even challenge the Republicans on the military budget, which is to exceed $1 Trillion this year. The Military-Industrial-Complex continually tightens its grip on our society and culture, and no one speaks out.

Mike Gravel has railed against our bloated military budget and destructive foreign policies ever since Vietnam. He single-handedly led a 5-month filibuster to force an end to the military draft, and released The Pentagon Papers into the public record. In his campaign for the Democratic nomination, he has openly criticized fellow Democrats for voting for the war and their complicity in a system of American Imperialism. He has also advocated direct democracy in the United States through the National Initiative, which would empower the American people to make laws on national level. Nader has expressed his support of this concept.

Ralph Nader has tirelessly worked for consumer rights, environmental justice, and public advocacy of nearly every type throughout his career. His presidential campaigns has been founded upon honesty, courage, and integrity unparalleled by those in our two-party system. His efforts have brought the subjects of excessive corporate power and abuses into the public sphere.

The causes of these two men are one and the same. The Military-Industrial-Complex is an amalgam of corporations the pervasively control our economy, society and culture. These industries harm and contaminate all segment of society, from the environment to agriculture, infrastructure to transportation, and our very health as a people.

Nader has recently launched a Presidential Exploratory Committee, and Gravel has stated he is committed to remaining in the presidential race until November. Were these two men to form an alliance, it would create an independent, progressive ticket of incredible might. Neither would be secondary to the other in significance, and both could campaign effectively. If there is to be a significant challenge to our two-party monopolistic corporatocracy, something unconventional such as this is necessary. Both men fearlessly go against the grain, which is crucial now more than ever, as major party politics are dominated by personality and pitch, rather than real issues.

Please sign this petition if you would like Mike Gravel and Ralph Nader to work together and form a truly forceful campaign for the American people in 2008.
