Nader Team Actions: Corporate Welfare Kings; etc..

Corporate Welfare Kings
February 4, 2008 www.naderexplore08.org
 
Greetings.
 
Tomorrow is Super Tuesday.
 
 
And tomorrow is a big day for the two corporate controlled parties.
 
For the corporate Democrats, will it be Hillary – whose work as a young lawyer for the union-busting Wal-Mart was documented last week by ABC News?
 
Or will it be Obama, who wants to keep nuclear power on the table and who has close ties to Illinois-based nuclear power company Exelon – as documented by a front page article in the New York Times Saturday?
 
At this point, we’re exploring other possibilities.
 
For one, we’d like to know—who will challenge the corporate welfare kings?
 
Pulitzer Prize winning New York Times reporter David Cay Johnston has written a brilliant expose of corporate welfare in the United States – how corporations use the government to take from the many and give to the rich.
 
Yesterday, the Times ran a book review by Jonathan Chait attacking Johnston as a “left-wing populist” (even though he’s a registered Republican) and saying that one of the heroes of the book is Ralph Nader.
 
Before the Times ran the review, Free Lunch had climbed to Number 5 on the Times non-fiction best sellers list.
 
Free Lunch is the kind of book we are urging all citizens to read before making snap judgments about this election year.
 
During this election year, we will be exploring this question – who will challenge the corporate welfare kings?

Thank you for your ongoing support and commitment to standing up to corporate power.
 
Please spread the word.
 
And give whatever you can.
 
Onward

Nader on CNN with Blitzer Sunday
It’s been a great week.
 
On Wednesday, we launched the Presidential exploratory web site.
 
On Thursday, Ralph Nader was on Democracy Now with our good friend Amy Goodman. You can watch the video of the interview here.
 
On Friday, Ralph did radio around the country.
 
And this Sunday February 3, 2008, Ralph will be on CNN’s Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer (11 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST.)
 
Hope you get a chance to watch.
 
We had a huge response to the launch.
 
And next week, on Super Tuesday, the corporate Republicans and corporate Democrats will let us know where they stand.
 
We’re keeping a close eye on both races.
 
In the meantime, in anticipation of the usual – corporate control of the country – we’re moving forward.
 
We are exploring whether we can get 1,000 active, committed citizens in each and every Congressional district.
 
And enough funding to launch a 50 state effort to challenge the corporate powers that be.
 
Thank you for your ongoing support and commitment to standing up to corporate power.
 
Please spread the word.
 
And give whatever you can.
 
If the corporate duopoly shakes out as we think it will, there will be only one place to turn this election year for active, vibrant, engaged citizen energy.
 
Check it out at www.naderexplore08.org.
 
It should be an exciting year.
