Overview

Unstoppable: The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State by Ralph Nader

Ralph Nader has fought for over fifty years on behalf of American citizens against the reckless influence of corporations and their government patrons on our society. Now he ramps up the fight and makes a persuasive case that Americans are not powerless. In Unstoppable, he explores the emerging political alignment of the Left and the Right against converging corporate-government tyranny.

Large segments from the progressive, conservative, and libertarian political camps find themselves aligned in opposition to the destruction of civil liberties, the economically draining corporate welfare state, the relentless perpetuation of America's wars, sovereignty-shredding trade agreements, and the unpunished crimes of Wall Street against Main Street. Nader shows how Left-Right coalitions can prevail over the corporate state and crony capitalism.

He draws on his extensive experience working with grassroots organizations in Washington and reveals the many surprising victories by united progressive and conservative forces. As a participator in, and keen observer of, these budding alliances, he breaks new ground in showing how such coalitions can overcome specific obstacles that divide them, and how they can expand their power on Capitol Hill, in the courts, and in the decisive arena of public opinion.

Americans can reclaim their right to consume safe foods and drugs, live in healthy environments, receive fair rewards for their work, resist empire, regain control of taxpayer assets, strengthen investor rights, and make bureaucrats more efficient and accountable. Nader argues it is in the interest of citizens of different political labels to join in the struggle against the corporate state that will, if left unchecked, ruin the Republic, override our constitution, and shred the basic rights of the American people.

Ralph Nader is not new to the political hot potatoes as evidenced by his past printings and documented press statements. And the need for a closer review and audit of Federal budgets is not really new news. However, he has shed some light on some interesting attempts, on the QT, by several political and apolitical groups to facilitate the control of the Federal budget with emphasis on the run-away Dept of Defense budget. That part of the process has been the Sacred Cow that has bitten anyone and everyone who even alludes to looking at controlling the $800 billion Sacred Cow. Reminds me of Jimmy Stewart's movie, "Mr. Smith Goes To Washington." You want to think that you can control the inflationary, racket-laden Dept of Defense budget, but it's like trying to stop a runaway freight train with a pencil - not going to happen. His proposals for non-partisan cooperative partnerships in stopping this freight train may have some merit. It appears as though, at this point in time, both sides of the "aisle" recognize the need to do something, lest the country implode on a massive tumultuous scale based on the current economic Congressional miscalculations. Interesting ideas - not it's time for someone to step up to the political plate and play ball.
