Nader warns of corporate control

Dear Editor:

Reliable Ralph Nader in the public interest road to serfdom (“The Progressive Populist, 12/1/10”) points out “The giant corporate control of our country is so vast that people who call themselves anything politically — liberal, conservative, progressive, libertarian, independent or anarchist — should be banding together against the reckless big business steamroller.”

Nader sites a Washington Post headline, Oct. 27, “A bargain for BMW means jobs for 1,000 in South Carolina: workers line up for $15 an hour — half of what German counterparts make.”

Nader then emphasizes the baleful menace of “Giant Corporate Control” by citing Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Dwight D. Eisenhower and their warnings.

Nader says the 2010 campaign slogan should have been: “It’s corporate crime and control stupid,”

And I agree with him, fully and wholeheartedly.
