The author presents an example of the alleged paranoia of the Ralph Nader presidential campaign. An e-mail sent to supporters by Ralph Nader this week makes the following complaint: Both of these states [Texas and North Carolina] have unbelievably early deadlines to get on the ballot and unfair signature requirements. In Texas we need to collect 66,000 VALID signatures by May 10th. Valid signatures? That is unfair! It's obviously just another stratagem by the two-party duopoly to crush dissenting voices.
