Ralph Nader puts forward his 12 point plan
Here is Ralph Nader's take. He would have a good chance, but the Presidential "Debates", once run by the league of women voters was taken in by a quango when, Quigley inspired Clinton was panicked by a 3rd party getting almost 10% of votes. The Debates commission is headed by a Republican and a Democrat, and guess what, they ban 3rd and 4th parties from the debate,. Ralph is important because he can get 10% in some states, so is the main challenge to the two party dictatorship. "Congress needs to show some backbone before the federal government pours more money on the financial bonfire started by the arsonists on Wall Street." Ralph unfortunately appears to think that a bailout is necessary, but he does ask for debate, oversight, tough conditions & understands the threat from derivatives.
