i skipped the boat cruise with cegelis tonight. i tried calling, and there was no answer. so not knowing whether i could go or not, i chose not to pass up seeing chuck p (writer of fight club) at the library. he told a sick story, but was also amazing and deep. on the way, some folks were handing out lit making the argument that nader was being illegally kept off the ballot in IL. while i dont support nader’s efforts in a perhaps-close IL presidential race, i do support his right to legal access. as DFI, we need to create a positive movement. we need to support nader’s right, while at the same time, making the forceful argument that voting for nader is not the right choice in IL in this election. actions like this will make the Democrats trustworthy as a progressive party again.
