AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH
The extreme partisanship that has overrun American politics prevents honest debate about the critical issues facing our country.
Nowhere is the problem of partisanship more visible than in the conduct of the nationally televised presidential debates. A debate that includes only two candidates with strikingly similar views is too narrow in scope and substance. Americans need a more vigorous debate.
To have an open and engaged forum, independent presidential candidate Ralph Nader must be included. He offers different perspective on the pressing issues of the day. Hid participation will invigorate the dialogue.
Independent voters now make up 35% of the electorate, many of whom believe the exclusion of independent presidential candidates from televised debates since 1992 has harmed the democratic process and intensified partisanship. Millions of independent-minded Republicans and Democrats share this view.
At this critical time in America\'s history, there must be a genuine national dialogue on what direction our country should be taking. For an honest debate with differing viewpoints expressed, Ralph Nader must be included.
Mr. President, we, the undersigned, call upon you to speak out for American democracy. LET NADER DEBATE!
