Breaking Through Power: It’s Easier Than We Think

Ralph Nader

Back in Congress following February recess’s raucous town meetings, Republicans are shuddering. Instead of nearly empty auditoriums, where legislators’ staff often outnumber voters in attendance, meetings were packed with citizens determined to block the “take away” agenda of the Trump Republicans.

Ralph Nader ... always a gem!

" We are a country that has far more problems than it deserves and far more solutions than it applies. This is due heavily to the control of the many by the few, which creates a democracy gap filled by a plutocracy."

We should have elected Nader in 2000. Probably wouldn't have been a 9/11 false flag event either. No Afghan or Iraq Wars. We even might have even averted the economic collapse of 2008.

The nation would be trillion dollars better off.

Irrespective of the 2008 collapse, "the nation would be MANY trillions better off" just from Nader preventing those wars from starting.

Electing Nader when he first ran for POTUS in 1996 would have definitely prevented the 2008 collapse when you consider all the financial industry decriminalization (corporations, their media and politicians called it deregulation) Bill Clinton signed during his second term that enabled or exacerbated the 2008 crash.

Had Ross Perot won in 1992 and 1996, and Nader won in 2000 and 2004, the 99% in the US and most of the world would be in a lot better off.

"They must tell our lawmakers they are not going away, and that they will keep coming back with more and more of our fellow citizens, ever more informed..."

Ralph, I think you meant to say, "We must tell our lawmakers we are not going away, and that we will keep coming back with more and more of our fellow citizens, ever more informed..."
