Ralph Nader was once the most despised man in korporate America for his muckraking. He has since become despised by the yuppie liberal media mouthpieces who use him as a scapegoat for the 2000 election. (Antonin Scalia or Jeb Bush would be better choices.) Whatever his flaws, he is his own man and a trendsetter, and thus his recent embrace of the fusion politics of progressives and libertarians may hopefully be a sign of where things could be heading.
Think of it as the best of both Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul. As trend researcher Gerald Celente described it, movement members would be "libertarian in the sense of government staying out of people's lives" and progressive "with the government having control of issues where they can make a difference." Nader declares this to be "the most exciting new political dynamic."
