    Exposing the Flaws of our Government

    The book that I chose for my summer reading, is named The Good Fight, is written by Ralph Nader. The book is that of a careful dissection of the current political situation in America and how dire the situation truly is. In it his look at the political system of our nation¿s government ranges from the Environment to Taxes to Education, encompassing the entire spectrum. The way he structured the book is that for each chapter he takes on a new topic stating what is wrong with the system and stating what can be better done to fix our ailing government. The key theme throughout the book is corporations, the way they abuse and extort the government into doing what they desire. Whether it be tax cuts or just bending laws to allow big corporations to function, corporations are what is ruining Washington D.C. I chose this book for my summer reading off of the recommendation from my brother, Billy, who worked for the Nader presidential campaign in 2004, and is an avid supporter of him. I highly recommend this book to everyone because the book is supposed to help the ignorant citizens learn of the abuses perpetrated onto them by their own government. While the book did in fact succeed in scaring me to the point where one thinks that the government stands no chance in the future, it does give a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel for fixing a broken system. He gives several shocking examples that appall the reader about the facts of the American society such as the fact that providing clean water and sanitation for everyone would cost only nine billion dollars, yet the entire amount spent on perfumes in Europe and the United States over the course of one year is twelve billion dollars. The book took several sittings to read through because of the aggravation that it brings, but is a vital book to anyone who cares about the future of their children or their grandchildren. It is one of the single most important political books that will be written because it is an objective look at a topic that is almost always looked at subjectively and with bias. The hope that it gives is found at the end of ever chapter creating a mini story in every single topic starting with an introduction, introducing the conflict coming from the corrupt federal government and then concluding with a way to fix the problems that Nader has presented for discussion. In all he discusses fourteen distinct topics each of which are vital knowledge that everyone should know he succeeds in doing this in a brief expository book that is not filled with difficult political lingo or slanted opinions, just facts and his opinions, and other political scientists opinions, on how to fix our government. I highly recommend the book to everyone, and will go as far as to lending it to anyone who asks because this book has made such an impact on my life. The ignorance that was cast off at every chapter in the book has helped to expose the dire consequences of inaction.

    A champion of the people !!

    Another marvelous book by a great author and a warrior of the truth ! Ralph Nader as always is brilliant, decent, and incorruptible. Mr. Nader's high ethical standards and great ideas should be a guiding torch to our government. Thanks to him, there is some accountability in Washington. His persistence to fight for the public stands strong in defiance of the black out by the media and the dirty smear campaigns by the politicians. If Mr. Nader was corrupt he would've been recruited by the elites and could've occupied the White House or other high positions in government and top corporations. Mr. Nader is never for sale and will continue to stand for the little people as an icon of truth and integrity. I would highly recommend his book for every citizen that has concerns for his country, and for every person that values ethics in business, government, and life in general....

    A great argument for civic motivation

    Love him or hate him, Ralph Nader sure knows what he's talking about and makes a lot more sense than most of the dead-pan politicans in Washington, D.C. 'The Good Fight' is a great analysis of how corporate power and growth are destroying our community institutions as well as the true sense of the word democracy. Although a bit redundant at times, Ralph Nader's book provides solid claims and arguments and gets you motivated to bring about change that truly matters in society today.

    Wake up please

    Great, someone with our (the regular people), needs in mind. A great man, mostly unrecognized by our nation as a politician for the people. Wake up please. Im afraid of the future. We need to change things just as mentioned in this book. Read this and you will realize what we are facing. Its real and motivated by not greed but the need to care. Thank you for writing this.
