The 1% who voted for Nader in 2000 won the election. They wanted to show that there is no democracy in America, and they succeeded in lousing up the whole process.

re the sign: does anyone know where the synagogue is which posted this incredibly offensive signage? While it's interesting to hear what % of American Jews voted for which major candidates in which elections, the lack of responses from blog viewers is troubling. The word 'schvartze,' prevalent among many American Jews of the WWII generation and handed down to their children (boomers now in their 50's & 60's of age) is a Jewish way of using the N word without using the N word directly. As such schvartze is condescending, demeaning and overtly racist. Any Jew who uses the word schvartze to refer to African-American (or blacks from wherever) shouldn't blink when non-Jews call us kikes, Yids, Zhids, jewboys and jewgirls. The rabbi and board of the shul where this sign is should be told in no uncertain terms that the signage is incredibly offensive and racist. The only rationalization I would be able to offer African-American co-workers is that yes, anti-black hate and racism does indeed exist among American Jews. Do Jews need tolerance education? Absolutely!
