Toward a Green White House

Program #NADR012. Recorded in Boulder, CO on June 23, 2000.

The presidential campaign is in full swing. Many corporations, like AT&T and Microsoft, give to both to the Democrats and the Republicans. Election 2000 will be the most lavishly funded in history. Citizens are told it's their duty to vote, but many find little to choose from. One candidate is a corporate funded scion of a wealthy political family. And so is the other. Over 90 million Americans don't vote at all. Some of it may be attributed to apathy, but a lot of people are fed up with the traditional choices and yearn for something different.


Ralph Nader

Ralph Nader, a legendary figure, has spent a lifetime fighting on behalf of ordinary people. The Atlantic named him one of the hundred most influential figures in U.S. history.  Founder of Public Citizen, he is a long-time advocate for consumer safety and workers' rights. He rose to fame in the 1960s when he took on General Motors and its unsafe Corvair car. His 1965 book Unsafe At Any Speed not only created a sensation but also was instrumental in the enactment of the Motor Vehicle Safety Act. His efforts helped create the Environmental Protection Agency. He has exposed the misdeeds of the corporate sector as well as of the political system. In recent years he has led the struggles around the WTO, corporate welfare, and single payer health care. He is the author of numerous books including Breaking Through Power and To the Ramparts.
