I will never agree with much of Nader’s perspective. I don’t think all his fear of corporations is entirely wrong. But the state is just a big corporation with guns. Trying to get the state to limit corporate power is a way of empowering the most dangerous corporation.
Nevertheless, even though I feel a bit guilty about it, I must confess that sometimes he makes me want to stand up and cheer. Yahoo News published an article on Nader and his new book about “an emerging Left-Right alliance.” Much of it I already knew or guess, but I was surprised by this bit:
When it comes to the current president, Nader said that Obama has violated the Constitution on several occasions and should be impeached.
“Oh, most definitely,” Nader said when asked if Congress should bring forward articles of impeachment against Obama. “The reason why Congress doesn’t want to do it is because it’s abdicated its own responsibility under the Constitution.”
Nader said the president’s use of military force in Libya has been his most “egregious violation of the Constitution.”
