Friday Movie Night - An Unreasonable Man

hot buttered popcorn It's Friday Night! Party Time!   Time to relax, put your feet up on the couch, lay back, and watch some detailed videos on economic policy!

The 2008 elections are upon us and as usual, 3rd party candidates get a pure media blackout. With the obvious corporate agenda infused in both major political parties, tonight's video is An Unreasonable Man, a exceptionally well done documentary on Ralph Nader. Regardless of whether you agree with his positions or blame him, hate him, Nader has been a tireless advocate for the citizens of the United States.

Considering this is Halloween with reports on toxic plastic and poisonous chocolate from China...taking a listen to Ralph seems almost festive.

Truly....

....having just finished 'John Adams' and now watching this makes me closer to judging the American people as....

Lacking.

Makes me glad I bought a Nader '08 Tee....

I can only say that after hundreds of hours of reading and watching Obamabi and MSM crapola Mr. Nader has, finally, inspired me.

Why can't our so called progressive leaders do this, eh?

Maybe because they are, in actual fact, soulless parasites who need to be purged from the polity?

Maybe because their mouths are stuffed with the excess and graft their conception of the 'American Way' to the extent that the only thing that emerges is the vomit of lies we have come to call our 'political discourse'? A vile spewing which increasingly makes no sense to anyone? Which hampers our ability to even communicate about the vital issues of the day. Which greases the slide towards the 'poverty trap'. Which makes a future as alluded to in Jared Diamond's 'Collapse' all the more probable.

Does either of the 'major party' candidates make any sense when you really listen to them?

I think not.

I will be posting at my blog in the near future on what I see and this was a great post to read as I had 'forgotten' about Nader. It's clear to me he has something vitally important to contribute.
