    Ok Michael, you've had your realpolitik fling with ex-
    General Wesley Clark. Your endorsed Presidential candidate
    in the Democratic Primaries has withdrawn. It is time for
    you to come home, to join your buddies and resume your only
    genuine role which is that of defiance and resistance.
    Compliance and assistance with the Democrats does not accord
    with your past, your character, your bold writings and, most
    memorably, your long corrosive assaults on the Party that
    betrayed the working classes and plunged our country into
    corporate globalization. Remember, Michael, you're the
    flinty man from Flint, Michigan. You've never forgotten your
    roots. The heady Hollywood, Manhattan scene with the
    celebrities and Academy Awards have never gotten to your
    head but rather have gotten into your deserving pockets. How
    we all recall your standing before one billion people in Los
    Angeles at the televised Academy Awards in 2003 and,
    breaking the customary cant of the awardees, throwing the
    gauntlet down to George W. Bush and his "fictitious" war

    Now the War has become a quagmire, with both Republicans and
    Democrats complicit (check the votes in Congress). The Draft
    may be on the way. So what are you doing going on the Al
    Franken Show very nearly breaking down when Al Gore (he of
    the pro NAFTA/GATT, anti-worker, regime-change, Iraq-
    bombing, lethal sanctions on half a million children
    Administration) called and thought you were apologizing. You
    have nothing to apologize for, Michael. Gore has a lot to
    apologize for-blowing the election he won in Florida and the
    country as a whole and for blowing, with Bill Clinton, the
    many opportunities the rich-booming Nineties and the
    collapse of the Soviet Union gave this country to turn a
    peace dividend into a pro-worker, pro-environment, pro-
    consumer and anti-poverty resurgence.

    Come back and join our Presidential campaign, Michael. Talk
    to those "Reagan Democrats"-those 35% of union members who
    still vote Republican and against their own interests-as
    only you can. Michael, if you go pumping for the Democratic
    Party this year, just what are you going to say to the
    unemployed steelworkers near Sparrows Point in Maryland? To
    the megathousands of laid off textile and furniture workers
    in North and South Carolina? To the abandoned auto workers
    waiting and waiting near their empty factories that went to
    repressive countries? To the millions of blue-collar
    workers, who fought our wars, only to learn that the two
    parties won't fight for their company pensions and health
    insurance? Are you going to tell them how the Democratic
    Party pushed through the WTO, let their pensions erode or
    disappear, were too busy collecting checks from the
    corporate bosses to pay attention to the corporate crime
    wave that looted and drained trillions of dollars from
    millions of workers, their retirement and small investments?
    Will you tell them that the cowardly Democrats, who couldn't
    win the fewer elections they are now not losing without the
    labor vote, won't even mount a determined drive to repeal
    the notorious, union-blocking Taft Hartley Act?

    How can you be free to be what you are, or to depress
    Bush's vote, to jolt into consciousness the moribund
    Democratic Party?

    Hey Dude, join your real buddies! The ones you may be
    thinking about just don't fit either your message, your
    vision, or our website

    Come back home Michael. The workers and the youth of America
    are looking for you.

    Best regards, Ralph Nader

    P.S. Will you put this invitation on your website and see
    how your fans react to Michael Moore returning to the
    Nader 2004 presidential campaign? Patti Smith will
    reserve a big singing spot, for you, on the stage for
    the customary finale, PEOPLE HAVE THE POWER.

    Join the Call for an Impeachment Inquiry of Bush and Cheney
    Help us Get Congress to Take Action

    You can help the call for an impeachment inquiry of
    President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. Sign our
    online Petition.

    George W. Bush and Dick Cheney should be impeached for
    two reasons:

    They led the United States into an illegal,
    unconstitutional war in Iraq. They misled the
    Congress and the American people with five falsehoods
    that led to war.

    All it takes is one Member of the House of Representatives
    to call for an Impeachment Inquiry to start the process to
    investigate the two grounds. If the House then votes by a
    simple majority for Articles of Impeachment, the Senate
    would then undertake a trial of the President and Vice
    President. They would only be convicted, and impeached, if
    two-thirds of the Senate agrees.


    is the paradigm of democracy.

    IFCO does not limit its activity to pro-Castro factions, though. Its
    management maintains relationships with extremist Islamist groups as well.
    Walker travels frequently to Iraq, usually alongside Ramsey Clark. IFCO is a
    member of ANSWER Steering Committee.) Bernstein is a member of the American
    Muslim Council's campaign against the use of secret evidence. Clement met
    with Palestinians during a WILPF "solidarity" conference in May 2002. IFCO
    is also a fiscal sponsor of the National Coalition to Protect Political
    Freedom (NCPPF). The co-founder of NCPPF was the recently indicted terrorist
    financier Sami Al-Arian.

    However, NION's links with Muslim terrorists are not just indirect, through
    IFCO. NION invited both Sami Al-Arian and Lynne Stewart to address their
    October 6, 2002 rally in Central Park. Stewart was indicted for passing
    messages on behalf of her terrorist client Sheikh Omar Abdul Rahman.

    One of the members of NION's Advisory Board, Abdeen Jabara, is a member of
    the legal advisory board for the American Muslim Council. He is a past
    president of the Arab-American Ant-Discrimination Committee, a board member
    of William Kunstler's Center for Constitutional Rights, and a co-counsel
    with Lynne Stewart for Sheik Rahman, the terrorist convicted for the 1993
    World Trade Center bombing.

    The American Muslim Council is one of the current members of Al-Arian's
    NCPPF (the same group to which IFCO's Bernstein belongs). Leaders of the AMC
    have been quoted as praising Hamas and Hezbollah. Jabara's AMC advisory
    board colleagues include Fakhri Al-Barzinji. Al-Barzinji is involved in
    Mar-Jac Poultry, which was raided last year by the FBI for links to Sami
