Bonnie-Luke from Washington said that she had never even heard of Ralph Nader and, beyond that, never dreamed of calling herself a political person, but when she came across the phrase “Nader-Hater” on the world wide interwebs, she knew she had to align herself with that.

Terry from California said she was ALOL (almost laughing out loud) when she saw the phrase, and since she hated all politicians anyway, she said it just felt right to hate Nader too.

Paul from North Carolina said that he and all his friends made a pact to become more active in the upcoming elections, so they made “Nader-Hater” t-shirts for their entire community.  He was shocked at how quickly they caught on and is now very proud to be a part of something he’s heard referred to as “grassroots.”
