argumentum ad nauseum

Reapeating the same discredited “fact” over again doesn’t make it true. Dressing up the word “fact” with superfluous adjectives like “incontrovertible” doesn’t magically make bogus claims true. You can either render legitimate evidence — something more than mere speculation — or you can keep throwing in your $0.02 knowing full-well you are not advancing this discussion in an intellectually honest way.

Even if you were right, Gore would still be to blame for not being a good enough candidate in the eyes of Nader voters. That is not Nader’s fault, and certainly not the fault of his voters. The Democratic Party is not the sole arbiter of which candidates people on the left can vote for, nor do we have to tolerate either major party trying to scare us into believing our opinions are invalid, or that our voices are traitorous. They sold us out, not the other way around.
