Don't kid yourself. Ralph Nader is man that has made millions from speaking fees then made more in investments in the same corporation he claims to hate. In the 1970s Nader claimed to live in a boarding house with a bathroom down the hall. Turns out he had a luxury home purchased in his brothers name. This is a man that stays in first class hotels. For all the "Democrats are corporate whores" talk he will not release his tax forms either.
He talks about not owning a car and they are unsafe. We should take the bus. Turns out he bums rides from employees in their *gasp* cars!
He also stopped his own employees from creating a union. many were making 13,000 a year salary for 60-80 hours a week workloads. Nader says:
"I don't think there is a role for unions in small nonprofit 'cause' organizations any more than ... within a monastery or within a union."
Totally ignores the point that most working for non-profits could give a shit less about the mission. They are there to make a living. To them it's a job and not a calling.
Although they had handling problems anyone that thinks he killed the Corvair
should do some research and maybe google
it. Those cars were expensive to produce, sold for very little, not many options and turned little in profit. Sales were down and GM had decided to kill the car but continued to make the car with poor sales in 1967-1969 to spite Nader claims. Anyone with a knowledge of cars could tell you the death of the Corvair
was because of new cheaper models with fresh designs like the Camaro
(Sept. 1966) and Mustang
(april 1964). Mustangs and cougars 1964-1970 by the way have fuel tanks in the trunk that can explode on rear impact. Much like Pintos.
I agree with a lot of the words coming out of Ralph Nader's mouth. Too bad his real record does not match the rhetoric
. Ralph Nader is just the anti-corporate version of Jessie Jackson
Fuck Ralph Nader. I am getting a 1964 Corvair convertible.
