Obama will go down as probably the worst president in US history.  Worst than Carter.  Worse than Woodrow Wilson who sold out to the banking cartel and got their fed ball rolling.

The elitists are laughing their cashmere socks off seeing how they made the first "black" US President their little water boy. 


Gotta love seeing these videos on days such as this.  Look at all the fucking idiots....so eager to "believe" and throw all their trust in someone they know nothing about instead of taking a little time to educate themselves to determine who's behind the curtain.



I applaud you, the world's banking elite, for such brilliant and calculated moves.  You are truly a worthy adversary.

Extend the NFL season.  Flip through your xfinity channels with the touch of your iPad.  32 million on food stamps.  Breads & circuses.  Breads & circuses.  Encore!

Yes Miss Daisy.  Yes'm.

Bravo Mr. Faber!  Bravo!

I haven unbroken track record in this regard.   I've been saying every four years, since Kennedy  was in office, that next President can't be as bad as the current President.  I've been wrong every time.

+1. We'd all be living in 30% less house,  but it was Chinese drywall anyway. abortion would be available at the McDonald's drive through. SUVs would be outlawed.

But on the plus side, Ralph would not have taken any shit from china or the TBTF including Government motors and their MAD union bosses.

Not without some serious concessions, anyway.

@ LowProfile: 'Socialist'? <sigh> Hardly, mb by Ronald Raygun's "Socialism for the Wealthy" broken record standard; you need a new dictionary, that Webster's collegiate you're clinging to is getting a little dog-eared and is woefully out-dated. Welcome to the new millenium! (you're a few years late, unfortunately)

Ralph has 4 decades (count 'em!) of wins booked for mainstreet, kix the ass of your current anodyne's 'Hope For Spare Change' CV. Or the "Free for those who can afford it, very expensive for those who can't" Patriot Act crowd.

Mr. Nader has been doing his part to get the lead out of your water and into your plutocr... nm. Carry on tweeting the thrilling purchase of your next pair of Chinese made shoelaces while you pick up your shrunken dollar-fifty-nine menu burger.

The last substantial thing Ralph did,hmmm.. Oh yeah, he saved the world from the corvair.   Well gosh yeah lets make him POTUS.. Makes about as much sense as voting in a guy whoe refused and refuses to this day to release his college transcripts, oh wait we did that too.. Never mind..

Makes a helluva lot more sense that voting in a B-grade actor, or a long line of little boys who like poking sticks in hornets' nests worldwide, IMHO.

Your right a community activist is just what we need.. Well one more at least.  Get real, leaders are required not some dude in a cheap suit pushing consumer protection laws.  Yep, a few things he advocated, never actually had to put his ass on the line and vote for were mildly helpful.  Make him POTUS as a result, lol..

I repeat: as opposed to...?

Perhaps you have some examples of these 'Great Leaders'. Stalin sure sounds like your kinda guy, he definitely 'got things done', though the suit was all military. Lloyd Blankfein would be your cup o' tea perhaps? He's got some glad rags. Yah that's definitely what America needs, another round of well-dressed plutocrats... accomplished 'activists' <snort> damn hippies.

Oop, I said 'Stalin'. Quick, someone play the misnomed 'Socialist' card.

Those wins Ralph has posted benefited/continue to benefit ALL Americans, not just your hometown 'community' of Seedsville.

Seemed like natural fits considering your desire for ' great leaders' dressed in the height of fashion; you were complaining about Ralph's wardrobe, and concluded 'ergo' that that, combined with his ability to successfully lobby for legislation that has actually benefited mainstreet, would make him a bad POTUS.

See what I did there?

A slave plantation in your socialist mold seems like a natural fit for you.  Ralph is a dyed in the wool socialist which is perhaps fine for you not for me. Does not mean I want totalitarian despots, no matter your tortuous fallacies, you know that is the socialist dream not the conservative dream.  Self determination with a limited government is our dream not the top down nanny state of your nihilist end game.  Try reading Ralphs positions below from his interview in Socialism Today maybe that will clear the webs..

Most people that criticize Nader have no idea what he's actually done, and most of those people don't care to learn.

I feel sorry for you if you do not know more.  Here is an article from Socialism Today featuring Ralph that should get you right up to speed on Ralphie.


An excerpt:

"Thus he speaks of mobilising 'civic power' to redirect tax dollars to social needs. He advocates using state control of public lands (a third of US land) for the public interest, and taking control of $5 trillion of workers' pension funds to use in the interests of working people.

Nader advocates building more institutions "that allow us to band together vis-à-vis banks, insurance companies, HMOs [health maintenance organisations], cable companies, landlords, all of these can be done".

He envisages social change through "building new political power, new economic power, new media power, new civic power for all Americans; only by doing that are we going to turn around the headlong rush into systemic and institutionalised injustice shortchanging the lives of future generations and damaging the lives of present generations. This is why I am running". (Speech to the annual convention of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Baltimore, 11 July)



This is a radical, populist message; it envisages social progress through the radical democratisation of capitalism."

Sound peachy, taking private pensions,using state land properly (WTH) and banding us together, common denominator time mmm, kumbaya baby, kumbaya.. Rub some patchouli right here Ralph.

Does Ralph dislike Kleptocratic corporatism, yes just as do I, our similarities end there.  The devil is in the details and I don't like his details that according to the dull socialist tool above apparently makes me a Stalin fan..

Appy polly logies if my being blunt hurt your delicate sensibilities. My suggestions for leaders fit the criteria you seem to value most. I admit it was conjecture based only on your short comments ignorantly denigrating Ralph.

 Congratz for going as far as you have in educating yourself! Your interpretation needs some work, mind you. Keep at it, you might get somewhere someday!

Lloyd B. in fancy dress is still not off the table as one of your favourites then?

Don't forget voting in a recovering Alcoholic who found "god," and ran assorted businesses into the ground. So that makes a two mistakes back to back. Would it have hurt to take a gamble? 


The point is atleast Nader has some integrity. Sure we can laugh at him. But he didn't give up. And he was never bought (at least that we know).

I've heard that some rabid Andrew Jackson worshippers foam at the mouth that the Patriot Acting Elephants have played the role of useful idiots and supported Ralph's Prez campaign because they thought it would "split the Dem's vote", but that is just a rumour. As if the Demoblicans are separate entities anyway.

It was hilarious when he started talking about how important an established third party (any third party)  would be to the discourse of the county. You know what the Dems and Pubs did? They got the MSM to do a huge expose on "how can a supposed man of the people have a greedy net worth of $1,000,000?" Which was an accurate account of the assets of a 50+ year old man including his primary residence.

compare to Bush(s). clinton(s). gore(s). Edward(s). Kerry(s). Bob Dole and his wife that made over a million per year running the charity called the american red cross. Obama(s).

20 years later we got Ron Paul sponsoring debates on CSPAN for all minor parties across the spectrum. From Libertarian to Socialist.

And if I remember correctly, he was NOT allowed into the debates as a third party candidate, and physically removed by law enforcement. In fact he sued the federal government over it. Who knows how that ended......

Always amazes me how the older generation who has seen the fruits of Mr. Naders Labor wouldn't vote for him. But had no problem voting for Bush the first time around. He had done nothing of value for the public at that point (or since as it were).

Bush was a complete disaster at everything he touched.  And then he became president.

If there are any doubts about the utter lack of meritocracy in the United States,  they were dispelled the moment he was elected.  George Bush is the gold standard for success which is both inherited and undeserved.

A nation without a meritocracy cannot be competitive.  Meritocracy lies very close to the core of capitalism. 

We have neither.

Hey you're the one stuffing ideologies into Ralph's mouth and saying they're his, not me. Sorry, but that doesn't negate your problem with simple definitions. Your pre-secondary description of 'socialism' certainly sounds all Ronald Reagan to me. Maybe you'd better look up 'Straw Man' too while you're at it.

At the 1:25 mark, the anchor says:

...People that agree with what you say, at least our viewers, tend to be mostly Austrian...

Even ONE YEAR AGO, who would have thought a Bloomberg anchor would be making that sort of statement?!

He wasn't referring to the Austrian economic school. He was just noting that most of Bloomberg's paying clientele are Austrian nationals.

Many of them are quite ancient and living in a secret bunker with the 121 year-old Adolf Hitler, who's secretly running the world economy; and who is arguably correct in believing that his boys actually won WWII.
