Ralph Nader speaking at a protest against the Iraq War, September. 2007

Ralph Nader is an American politician and activist who ran for president in 2008 as an independent candidate. [1] Nader is a strong believer in environmentalism, anti-corporatism, anti-fascism, and liberal ideas. He was the only candidate in the 2008 presidential elections to oppose offshore drilling, and the only one that puts the well-being of Planet Earth and its people ahead of corporate greed and profit.

After the death of Al-Qaeda terriost Osama bin Laden A 2002 interview between Bill O'Reilly & Nader talking about what he (Nader) would have done after 9/11 if he were President at that time was uncovered.[1]

Why Bush became president

Nader has run for President four or five times, and the Democrats blame him for the "loss" of Florida in the 2000 Presidential election. This is because those who voted for him would have chosen Al Gore over George W. Bush, as his political positions are even farther to the left than those of the Democratic Party, if the United States had Instant Run-Off Voting this would not have happened.

Nader's Political Leanings

Ralph Nader is a social and economic liberal, such as stopping the War on Drugs; he also holds progressive economic views, putting the well-being of the people and the planet before that of corporations. Nader is against imperialism and supports a complete turnaround of American foreign policy in the Middle East. He supports ending the War in Iraq, ending corporate influence in Israel, and making amends with our current "enemies", the Muslim governments of the region.

It is unfortunate that Nader is viewed only as a "goat" for the Democrats, because if the system was truly democratic in America then the election would feature many competitive parties, the way elections in Europe do. However, he usually only receives around 5 percent of the popular vote due to the monopoly that the Democratic and Republican parties have on American politics. He also twice ran for President in 2000 and 2004 as the Green Party nominee.

He didn't run in 2012 because he was too old. That was very fortunate because if he had run we might have endured four years under President Romney. That's a possibility too awful to even think about. But Donald Trump is even worse.
