I know it has been a while since the 2000 elections. But something has been bothering me ever since.
Ralph Nader claimed that the two major parties–the Democrats and the Republicans–both are in bed with big corporations. I forget exactly how he phrased it, but he said words to the effect that they both drop to their knees when offered money by them. It was just a question of how fast.
Now, don’t take this as a jab against Mr. Nader. But did you ever see his commercials? Professionally done with paid actors and running in prime time. Even ads for the American Lung Assoc. don’t run in prime time.
If he had nothing to do with corporate money–then how did he pay for those expensive commercials ?
