DENDRITE is not endorsing a candidate, just reporting what we know about
candidates, and how to contact their campaigns about human rights in
*** CONTACT RALPH NADER! ***
Ralph Nader has announced he is staying "neutral" on the issue of
involuntary outpatient psychiatric drugging. What??
This isn't good enough... Because Ralph has had long ties with the group
Public Citizen -- and two physicians associated with Public Citizen
(Drs. Wolfe & Torrey) both promote forced outpatient psychiatric
Ralph needs to distance himself from these doctors, and speak out
against forced outpatient psychiatric drugging. Public Citizen has even
started a combined web site with Torrey's extremist Treatment Advocacy
For more info and proven ways to contact Ralph:
*** CONTACT TIPPER GORE ***
In the Gore campaign, Tipper Gore has made "mental health" her key
issue. You can easily e-mail Tipper Gore today. Al Gore is talking a lot
about "patients rights" and "taking on the drug industry" on the
campaign trail. But why haven't Al and Tipper endorsed the President's
National Council on Disability's Ten Core Recommendations about *real*
Read the 10 core recommendations from the President's own National
Council on Disability at
Ask for your own free copy of "From Privileges to Rights: People Labeled
with Psychiatric Disabilities Speak for Themselves" by e-mailing to:
<sbrown at ncd.gov>.
E-mail to Tipper Gore to SPEAK OUT against forced outpatient psychiatric
drugging. Has she read the NCD report?
*** CONTACT HARRY BROWNE ***
This summer's convention of the Libertarian Party passed a specific
plank against psychiatric coercion, such as involuntary outpatient
commitment. Candidate Harry Brown has spoken out against these abuses.
You can thank him by e-mailing to:
info at HarryBrowne2000.org
The Support Coalition member who helped get that plank through is Alice
Lillie of Nevada. You can thank her at <alicelillie at hotmail.com>. Ask
Alice about a public interview where Harry Browne denounced S 2639, a
huge psychiatric bill which is sailing through the Senate.
*** GEORGE BUSH ****
Unfortunately, Texas has a "double whammy." That is, it not only has
involuntary outpatient commitment, it also is one of six US states that
has PACT -- Program of Assertive Community Treatment. That means anyone
in Texas can not only be court ordered to take powerful psychiatric
drugs against their will while living at home, but to enforce that a
drug-delivery team can come to their home every day if need be to WATCH
while they involuntarily take their psychiatric drug.
To see actual animated video of these "dose drops," see the web site:

caption for the animated video to see more video.
To e-mail and ask George Bush to oppose such forced at-home drug
deliveries, you can leave an e-mail comment here:
