Politics is the Shadow Cast on Society by Big Business
Mute the NFL on CBS.
It’s go time.
Today is D-Day.
We need to hit $250,000 today.
And we’re at $200,000.
We are the only true political opposition left in America today.
Obama and the Democrats?
Don’t delude yourself.
As Noam Chomsky put it this week:
"The United States effectively has a one-party system, the business party, with two factions, Republicans and Democrats."
And as the social philosopher John Dewey put it early in this century:
"Politics is the shadow cast on society by big business."
And that will remain true as long as power resides in "business for private profit through private control of banking, land, industry, reinforced by command of the press, press agents and other means of publicity and propaganda," Dewey said.
Nader/Gonzalez is churning.
Creating a force for change.
Against the shadow cast by big business.
Against all odds, we are optimistic about the future.
Because of you.
Our loyal supporters.
Yesterday, you came through, as usual.
And took us to the $200,000 mark on our way to our goal of $250,000.
Today, we have a heavy lift.
$50,000 on a holiday Sunday.
Here’s the plan.
We have 500 copies left of the hardcover edition of Ralph’s classic — The Seventeen Traditions.
We need to move these now.
To meet our goal of $250,000.
So, if you haven’t given yet, please donate $17 — or whatever you can afford — now to Nader/Gonzalez.
And if you donate $100 or more now, we will send you an autographed copy of Ralph’s classic — The Seventeen Traditions (HarperCollins 2007). The 150-page hardcover book details the seventeen traditions that Ralph grew up with and is the closest thing so far to a Ralph Nader autobiography. So, don’t miss out on this limited edition offer. (This offer ends October 12 at 11:59 p.m.)
We need to move 500 of you — our loyal supporters — to step up and snap up The Seventeen Traditions.
And we will meet our goal.
So, mute the NFL on CBS.
And watch our widget as we close in on $250,000.
Onward to November
The Nader Team
