Nader and Paul Prove the World Isn't Flat

Nader is running again.

"The consumer advocate also blamed tax and other corporate-friendly policies under the Bush administration that he said have left many lower- and middle-class people in debt."

You know, Ralph Nader and Ron Paul are obviously on completely opposite ends of the spectrum, and, while I tend to lean farther to Paul's side, I see a similarity. Both seem to advocate a "politics for the people" thing. (understandably - I mean this country was founded on that idea at one point, right?)

The separation, and, in turn, desperate hatred, comes in its application. Paul wants to put the power of the world in the hands of the common man simply by limiting government. In a bizarre twist, Nader wants to empower people by, well, empowering the government.

Nader's philosophy may not make sense to the common man, but a connection is clearly present between the two. Both known for being extreme radicals in the political realm in quite opposite manners, they truly are just distant cousins. A connection between the two shows that the political world isn't flat, it is perfectly round, looping from intelligence in libertarianism back through to socialist stupidity.

...the circle of life must go on...
