What’s Nader done to address rampant pharmaceutical fraud, the AT&T surveillance scandal, and the Sub-prime crisis?
“America would never invest the necessary funds or energies in rehabilitation of its poor so long as adventures like Vietnam continued to draw men and skills and money like some demonic destructive suction tube.” (Dr. King, 1967)
