Ralph Nader on Bernie Sanders’ Presidential Bid & His Unanswered Letters to the White House

Ralph Nader's website

"At seventy, Nader is still issuing a clarion call to young people -- that they can and should change the world... message is as heart-stirring as ever...

"This is the same message that was so galvanizing in 2000 when Nader packed Madison Square Garden, and so many other venues, talking to people eager to help build the grassroots movement he envisioned...

"..."..the Republicans are worse than anyone imagined"

"The optimistic feeling many on the left had in 2000 is almost hard to recall now. The country has taken such a hard turn to the right...

"The most devastating aspect of the Republican regime, it seems to me, is its lawless militarism, which is spreading a toxic hatred of America around the globe...

"To the young people supporting Nader today, Bush is the status quo--not some freakish averration...

"About Nader, Zinn said, "He's been seduced by the last thing in the world he should be seduced by, which is electoral politics. He's not about that. He's about movement politics"" (Ruth Conniff. "Nader's Students." The Progressive, Nov.2004: 19-24).
