It never ceases to amaze me how people vote in this country. How people don’t care about anything but supporting what they are expected to vote, without question.
I get a glimpse into this when I hear people say “I don’t care about Ralph Nader‘s politics”..
Does anyone know anything about Ralph Nader? That he has between 6-8% support in some states, without even being able to debate in the primary debates (or any other major debate for that matter).
If Ralph Nader was allowed to debate, his small nitch of support and his straight forward approach to changing politics, and proposing laws as a consumer advocate would shine in front of 10’s of millions of people, and Ralph would start getting the attention that the other candidates are getting, and hey he might even be allowed to have a voice as a main stream political candidate like he is.
Ralph Nader is one of the few that have been on the cover of people magazine. Ralph Nader is known globally as a consumer advocate and as a advocate for the little guy. Ralph Nader’s education and credentials and especially his experience.. All make him someone worth listening too.
Even if you don’t intend on voting for him no matter what.. Doesn’t it seem rational to at least have a second, or in this case a third opinion about issues that are so serious?!
If I was a person with a terminal sickness of some sort. I think that I would be trying to get a second and a third opinion of what my options are..
This is the same thing with our current election, our freedoms, and our future. This is no small factor in our lives now and to come, and the lives of our children, and our children’s children.
To me this deserves way more than a second opinion. There needs to be some serious thought put in to the future of our country.
With our current financial crisis in the US. Doesn’t it seem smart to get a voice into our lives that comes from a consumer advocate point of view. Someone who has spent their whole life, wrote many books, took on many fat-cat corporations, changed laws, changes policies all to protect the little guy that can’t fight for him or herself so well as someone who has the credentials of a Princeton and Harvard graduate with a stack of well fought and well won cases.
Check this guy out! And remember, this isn’t just my freedom, and my way of life that I want to preserve.
I also have children of my own, who may have children, and so on.
Read a little about Ralph Nader
I was working on an entry for the contest, and this is what I came up with.
I meant to have this in banner format, but it took on a new life instead.
So this is my harvest / halloween greeting!
I drew most of the foreground with pencil, and doctored it up by mixing in a background that I made in Photoshop.
Too late for the contest. But it wasn’t meant to be anyway. Peace!
I love Nader. I’ve been a Green Party supporter since 1996. He represents a true man for the people, as you know. This is a true man of the people for the people.
My wife is going for Mike Gravel, and is very passionate about him. She is going to write him in I believe. I am going to write in Nader.
Both are very good leaders, and leaders who care. =)

What is XCannabis?
The name X Cannabis was formed to will the Cannabis plant into multiplicity! To multiply the plant is the overall purpose of this site.
Cannabis is a plant that for many thousands of years has been a plant of renown to the people of the world . Cannabis has been used by ancient Israelites, Egyptians, Americans and others throughout a span of an unknown number of thousands of years, but certainly 4000+ years.
The plant has been used for medicine, industry and recreation by these ancient and modern peoples.
XCannabis supports reform, legalization, and regulation of cannabis/marijuana/hemp. The benefits to all society is too great to ignore this plant any longer and it must not be ignored.
For years the US government has blocked all studies that are validated by the FDA of the cannabis plant that would show any beneficial effects of the plant for medicine. In other countries these studies have been done and the scientific community has unanimously agreed that cannabis has serious medical benefits without serious side-effects. Another proven notion is that not one human or animal known has ever died as a result of the toxic side effects of this plant.
The industrial use of hemp is also no secret. From many thousands of years ago, to the current times hemp has been used for industrial purposes such as paper, oil, rope, textiles and much much more.
It is at current time illegal to grow hemp in the US, however it can be imported to the US. 
Whats more, is that industrial hemp is entirely an American standard too. The hemp plant was grown and used by the founding fathers of the US, in fact the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution were drafted on hemp paper by Thomas Jefferson. 
Melanie Dreher, RN, PhD, FAAN explains her study in Jamaica. Pregnant women and their children were studied over ten plus years, both marijuan smokers and non smokers. One of the first scientific study of the effects of cannabis on pregnancy and the child’s development.
This is a great video that defines current marijuana policy, with a really good history (to be) lesson.
Seriously, think about what future generations going think about our constant willingness to give up our freedoms to fight some really stupid wars.
The war on drugs, the war on the middle east, the culture war… War war war war war war…..
But what exactly are we winning when we are so willing to give up our freedoms?
I should always wake more before making graphics..

There is a new page on xCannabis.com that’s called “Cannabis for Cancer“.
Please take a look at this story that is dear to my heart. It’s about my latest family member to get cancer.
Below is a video that I found on YouTube that gives a lot of information and history in just one video under 10 minutes. (highly recommended)
