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.

Perhaps the most misunderstood politician in the United States. The so-called "liberal" has written books on how to SAVE money and spend your money wisely.
Ralph Nader is a true progressive.

(n) 1. A politician who would have won the 2000 election if Al Gore didn't steal almost all of his votes and then have his brainwashed supporters turn around and falsely claim that said politician stole Al Gore's votes, because (according to their twisted form of 'logic') all votes truly belong to Democrats until people such as said politican use their evil satanic powers to convince people that elections are not horseraces and that voters should vote for who thay think should run the country, and not necessarily who will win.
Ross Perot was George the Elder's Ralph Nader.

A good man who would make a somewhat good president but won't be elected because America won't allow a third party to gain political office. If he would choose either Republican or Democrat then he might have a chance except Republicans won't accept him because he's not rich or stuck up and Democrats won't accept him because he's not a freak or of a minority group.
Cmpaign now: Ralph Nader '08!

A vessel used to throw away votes. While he deseves a great deal of respect he does NOT deserve to run the country. This country would run him. In the mean time he'll just continue to fuck up elections for people who might actually be able to win an election.
"That girl just Ralph Nadered her vote. Looks like four more years of republican pandering and bullshit."
