"The great elder statesman of consumer rights shows how previous administrations allowed unchecked corporate power to lead us to the criminality of Trump. Nader brings together the outrages of the Trump administration with the key flaws and failures of the previous administrations--both Republican and Democratic--that have led us to this precipice. Writing as a Washington, D.C. activist and people's advocate since the early 1960s--one who has caused to be enacted more impactful legislation than almost any sitting president or legislator--Nader shows how Trump's crimes and misdemeanors followed the path of no resistance of the Obama, Bush and Clinton regimes which ushered in the extreme rise of corporate power and the abandonment of the poor and middle classes"--

I once thought of Nader as an awesomely brilliant guy, and after hearing his speech in the early 1970s in D.C., I dedicated a great portion of my free time to volunteer activism, which I fully admit was wasted, but I was an optimist.
I have long since given up on Nader, whether it was the strokes which impeded him, or the fact that he is instrinsically a hardcore capitalist, which blinds him to the obvious and allows him to fall for Wall Street memes.
Nader appears to just not get it . . . . he doesn't grasp the workings of the Puppet Masters and PuppetMedia.
Just heard another repeat of a Nader interview on Alternative Radio and Nader explains how he requested donations from George Soros and Al Gore for a climate change lobbyists for Congress - - and was rejected. Nader actually believes Soros - - whose activities just happen to encourage mass refugee flows around the planet [larger and cheaper labor pool creation] with the resultant rightwing-tilt of governments experiencing the influx of those refugee flows, and Al Gore, who made Big Bucks from carbon permit trading hedge fund [cap-and-trade financial scam, extending the money creation entitlement of the banks and oil corporations] - - and Gore to be the Good Guys! Total gullibility, which is why Nader's plan never works - - one can file all the FOIA requests one wants, while wasting money as one after the other is denied, frequently on false grounds, et cetera!
