With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility

"So laura you lead the national advertising division. Tell us what problem any d- was created to address what was going on in the world of advertising that entity was created or Thanks very so the national advertising division which we fondly call an d. was started in nineteen seventy one. At that time there had been a huge growth in a new media right. It was an explosion in television advertising and A huge adoption of advertising as an television is a platform for reaching consumers So consumers were getting new information about cleaning products that cleaned betterer faster food products. That tasted better. Were easier to make than other things and you know. Most importantly probably was an explosion of advertising of cigarettes to them on television. And at the same time you had a rise of consumer advocates clamoring for more regulation of advertising of there was a sense that the advertising messages that consumers getting were not were misleading. You had advocates like ralph nader. Who famously advocated for a lot of different regulation over the years really jumping in on that on that pile here and talking about the importance of regulating advertising and protecting consumers you know at the in nineteen seventy-one when all of this was happening Cigarettes were the largest advertiser on television and in nineteen seventy one. Cigarette advertising on television was in fact. An i think there was this increasing distrust of advertising that that exemplifies consumers were being advertised. You with cigarettes which had been demonstrated to be harmful to health. So you know. It was an environment that caused both at agencies and the businesses that were advertising and the advertising association's to come together to address this problem. That consumers were the distrusted advertising. And they what they wanted to do at this time was build trust and advertising right so they wanted the industry to work together to build trust

Organization Seeks to Increase Voter Participation in America

"Cat. Calvin is the founder and executive director of Spread The Vote, a nonprofit organization that's working to increase voter turnout. Welcome to the program. Hi. Thanks for having me So One of the main things your organization is trying to do is close the gap between registered voters and voter turnout. How big of a gap are we talking about? Well about 83% of eligible voters in the country are registered. But we have an average turnout of 55% 15, maybe a little higher depending on the election, So there is a huge gap of tens of millions of voters who are registered. They've taken that first step but who have a hard time taking the many steps that it takes to actually get a ballot in So we hear a lot about voter registration drives. But why is that? Not enough? You know voter much drives a great their first step in every state except North Dakota. You have to be registered to vote. But the fact is, there are a lot of things that you have to do in between that So, for instance, one of the main things that spread the vote does is that we help people get ideas primarily in voter ID states. There are over 21 million eligible voters who don't have photo ID, but 36 states where it's required. So that means that you can look at states like Wisconsin, where there are over 300,000 registered voters who don't actually have the idea. They need to vote or 200,000, Virginia, etcetera. And so you know, that's just one big way that voter registration isn't actually looking at. What are all the other challenges you know, There's also transportation challenges. There's child care. We have a massive problem with discrimination against people with disabilities at the polls. You know, and then a huge, huge voter education gap. And so there's just a lot of things that we need to address between registration and turnout to make sure we're actually helping people explain a little bit more about the voter education gap that you see. Yeah. I mean, you know, it's interesting because I was listening to some of the questions that people had coming in. Also, I want to send bonus points to the Twitter who said that we should be doing rank choice voting because she's absolutely right. You know, the fact is that we don't We don't do a lot of civic education in schools anymore, And then we really don't do it after school, And so a lot of people just don't Really understand the voting process who they're voting for what we're voting for you. We do a tine of voter education and spread the vote. 77% of our clients have never voted before and had midterms. We had people in age ranging from 18 to 79 voting for the first time, and when they ask us questions or when we go, we get sort of thousands of questions that people just email us because we're an organization with vote in the name and it's Everything from. I don't know how I'm supposed to use this machine. I don't understand the difference between absentee voting and mail in voting in what's early voting. You know, I don't know what any of these positions are. Nobody knows what the comptroller is or what the board of supervisors is. You know, we get a lot of first time voters who we talk to you and they say I opened my ballot and I thought it was just going to be the president. But there were like 30 pages of things that I didn't know what I was supposed to do. I don't know what a ballot measure is. And so there's just a lot of sort of basic info. You know, there's also we get people who say I just open my mail in ballot and there's a bunch of pieces of paper here. I don't know what I'm supposed to do with that, you know, And so there's a lot of work that needs to be done. I'm just helping people understand what the process is. And how do you do it? How do you follow all these obstructions? And then when you look at, you know, people returning citizens the rules for returning citizens being able to vote or different everywhere, And there isn't a lot of information out about how people are supposed to know if they're eligible to vote again. How they become eligible. You know, people, Disabilities don't always know what all the requirements are and what accessibility requirements there are and what they're allowed to, You know, demand that they have it. They're polling place. And so there's just a lot of Really voting 101 information that people don't get. Well, we got this tweet from Benjamin, who says, I think the problem with voter apathy is that many people of you voting purely as a response to an agenda they did not set. It's important to stress to voters that they are just as much responsible for setting the agenda as they are for voting to set that agenda into motion, and I'm curious how much you hear from people about You know that that issue of you know? Look, I'm voting for something that I don't feel particularly a part off. Oh, absolutely. I mean, first of all, if we'd all been listening to Ralph Nader in the seventies, this would be a very different country because he basically was advocating for indivisible, right. He kept saying voting is just one day we have to be sure that we are keeping these politicians accountable that we're telling them what we want that we're making sure that they do it. And you know, one of the things that we try really hard to do now is remind people that voting is not the whole movement, but it's a big part of and that it is a thing. We have to do it once a year. Twice a year, however many times you vote in your community, but it is just one way. Of changing this democracy of setting the agenda, and so we have to still be taking to the streets. We have to still be calling into the police Commission meetings are going to City Council meetings. You know, we have to be finding and recruiting really amazing members of our community who we think would be great. You know, members of elected office and then supporting them. It's a lot more than voting that voting. Because we live in a democracy is a key part on I think when people understand I'm not just voting once a year and walking away and then someone else is making decisions, but that I'm helping to set those decisions and push those decisions and once a year voting is my way of grading how I think that those decisions were made and maybe hiring somebody new and firing someone excited, read, then it puts the power a lot more into the voters hands.

"Ten others to blame that that's what I was just gonNa tell you so? I was speaking Nashville few years ago and he I heard I was speaking there and he called me up. Got My number somehow in and so much more. Come over for breakfast tomorrow and still be here Tipper and I will will make you breakfast I I said Oh wow great free food you know me right so anyway so I I with next morning my other sister. went went with me and we sat there on stools in the kitchen as as He and tipper made the ham and eggs and really wonderful breakfast and I said to who am I said the Jeez I'm just wondering how you feel whether it's about me or anybody about the election On you know do you blame Ralph For your loss. And he said to me absolutely not he said that is the absolute wrong way to look at it. I blame me. I blame me why he said I didn't allow President Clinton to go around and campaign for me and he started listening these Arkansas. Yeah even in Arkansas one Arkansas. You've been done exactly. So he won the popular vote. Remember by five hundred thousand won. The popular was stolen from him and and Florida in seven different ways and in the Supreme Court. Scalia five four yes judicial coup d'etat. Yes put Bush in office he. He said that he wishes that people Were not angry at you. They should be angry at him and he said this is what he said to me. He said because in the end Mike It's my responsibility to convince you or anybody who was thinking of voting for the Green Party. It's up to me to convince Judah vote for me. Somehow I feel to do that. You know I don't know this is the wrong podcast. I have a story to no. I'm serious Maybe I should just I should just tell it now. I got a call John. Your chief of staff knows the story. Richard I got a call a week ten days before the election and they knew Florida was going to be very close. And so someone from the Gore Gore campaign called me and said You're close to Ralph. What could we do to convince him to? Oh yes tell everybody. Walgreen in Californian New York and Texas mm-hmm wherever doesn't it wouldn't hurt the election To have have him tell NATO voters in Florida to just please just in Florida vote for Gore. We WanNA talk. We WanNA talk to Ralph. We WanNA WANNA talk to him about You know just tell us what what position could Gore think about altering that would be more progressive whether it was healthcare union issues. Whatever could we could we? Could we talked Ralph. I think also they say they have brought up on the phone of They would be very interested in talking to you about a cabinet position so they so the voters your supporters would know that you would have a voice in the administration and I said well while you don't know Ralph there's no quid pro quo crawl crawl with Ralph. I mean it's not you know but I know that Ralph is smart enough politically to know that if if if you can appoint the right people so if you will if you will change your position to make it better on healthcare whatever. I'm sure he'd he'd WanNa talk to you. It's better Internet. We pushed minimum wage in Florida. which is winning issue one referendum as you know a few years later chief of staff wouldn't do it? You're you're chief-of-staff. He came back to me and said now. We don't WanNa talk but when I was in Florida who cares who picks these up. I gave the Democrats public. The whole platform Kerry be the author. Take dupree's but the one thing they could have one was the minimum wages because a few years later up again to Walmart. It's an all the people want a referendum. Ralph you've been you've been right on the stuff for ever do all the ideas that now I think most people in the Democratic Party subscribed to was originated by you you and whether it is we're we're talking about minimum wage. Health care safety issues environmental issues. You're the Oh gee you know what that means. The you're like to do original guy the you got it all going back in the one thousand nine hundred sixties. I mean people are alive today because you got laws passed with seatbelts and airbags literally thousands more Americans would be dead. Had Not Ralph Nader on this earth I mean that is that your legacy legacy is intact in this way now. We've got to let for the future because rolling everything back. My question is rolling back. My question you about two thousand is when when there was that week or two there were you. I said the your chief-of-staff you're literally the most powerful person in America right now because you could actually we help solidify Gore's win and you can get things for us politically that we needed back. Then and you held that power and you chose not to use it. I'm just I'm wondering why because man that would be the enviable envious position rush. Begin where you could have said yes. I'll help you in Florida. If you'll do this for the people well it would have been looked at cynically cynically. But I don't have retroactive clairvoyance. I thought he was going to take Florida. Who would ever dreamed? bumbling governor from Texas it could put three sentences together with a horrible record in in Texas against children and pollution's on would have taken that close by the way he lost for you know the recount a year later media he lost Florida's Supreme Court ordered recount. It was blocked by Scalia and the Supreme Court five four that would have ended up saying he won Florida. Because you know the hanging jags all the shenanigans. He won Florida. Who would ever dream of a sense that this power no way? Wow who would've thought that Bush was GonNa win to begin with because he didn't win the popular vote right. You lost the popular. It's right anyway. Well listen you are our hero still to millions and millions of Americans and regardless of other people have a disagreement about two thousand whatever nobody will ever fault or say a bad word about how you have spent your life fighting for people you I know you personally. I know you've given up I. You've you've not been able to have the life the normal life that normal people get to have you've devoted your entire waking moment in waking moment and I'm from probably you're on have nightmares but I'm telling you this man eats really healthy. There's a lot of garlic on the plate. I'm just saying that. There's some Lebanese. His you parents had a restaurant. I think in Connecticut. So you were raising that Lebanon's restaurant you keep eating that Lebanese Food and you look twenty years younger than I am now now we. We have the museum in the world my hometown. They American Museum Retort Law Tort Laws Wrongful Injury Sexual assaults opiates product effects contaminated water food. Term`museum dot Org by the big lesson. The big lesson from two thousand is a Democrats began to scapegoat instead of looking in the mirror. Saying what have we landslide the worst Republican Party in history. They're they're looking for scapegoats. Even blamed Little Green Party in two thousand sixteen doctor signed so they gotta start looking in the mirror. I I think that has happened off. I think it happened in in twenty eighteen and the off your election. And you're sitting right here. We are right here outside the place where the Democrats are standing up and doing what we need them to do. And this man has to go that guy who has are Oval Oval Office are White House that he has got to go and I just want to believe I know this is crazy. Thought that the Senate hey how about this trump you can keep the majority of Republican senators. There's fifty three of them. You can keep thirty three of them the majority but I I wanNA believe that that of the twenty that are left that there's ten of them that are in the Mitt Romney sort of thinking where I do believe they have actual core Beliefs religious beliefs and trump must seem like the devil. Tonight when they're not in front of camera or microphone. They know who he is. That's ten of that. Those Republicans and another ten just for own their own self interest if they don't vote to remove him we're going to remove them. Come November watch. What's going to happen? I mean if if there's one prediction I feel good about is that we're going to have democratic Senate next year and it's going to be maybe by more than just just a three we're gonNA need to flip it And I think those I think those Republicans who are on the edge possibly being tossed they know to and this is their moment to take stand for righteousness and so in my in my fantasy world. Those twenty Republicans. They come. They frankly I think all we need to do. All we need is a subpoena to see what else they put on that server in the White House than the Ukraine call tape and putting reading shit on that server. Ralph for three years and opportunity hiding stuff there I want to know what's there because I think when the American people here the other calls that are there. They won't won't need a map to go find out where because nobody nobody knows where Ukraine is but when the American public. Here's what else is on. There will be so audacious us think of all emails where he's done in the American worker. The American consumer patients emails in the tweets. I'm talking about you know this this is this is Republicans. If you're listening God man you ever hear of the whigs you're in an employee of moment.

Get out the vote. And they've got they've already raised five million dollars. They've got staff all over Kentucky and they don't they they don't trust the Democrats to beat the worst campaigner in modern American history. Church on how they're gonNA ditch him then because they're Democrat because they're going to the Democrat Democrat who's challenging. who was a former fire pot pilot? She thinks she doesn't need any copilot's right so they think she's GonNa make the same mistake trying to be both ways in in Kentucky public. Never they're saying we're GONNA get out an independent mass turnout of. It's now to vote for who well they're not McCain. But they know to vote against McConnell. Yeah all votes have got to go to one pot two. That's okay want to state the obvious. I'll allstate for you. You have to offer the Democrat. Okay we can say. Hey we've been back a long way you and I Okay now seriously. People still come down the street. Who Remember you know the Green Party? And all this. And they're like Yali at me and this guy who runs ditch. He's got the model for the country. Which is why which is civic parallel? Get out the vote you don't have to ah begs the Democrats. Foam banks don't work a few days before the election. They don't know how to get out the vote so you have a parallel movement Florida Ohio. Oh Wisconsin Michigan to get out the vote. Now you have Bloomberg's only put millions of dollars. That's what I know how to do. It just adds no no you have people underground into neighborhoods. You got the influence does now. I'M GONNA have developed relationships. I'M GONNA have my podcast here in the coming weeks and A and I'm GonNa tell them Mike All Right your job in this election. You're the bank. You're the bank and that's what you need to not run for president. Just be the bank and they're like the ATM Machine for Democrats who are running for a ballot proposals on gun control and whatever Mike Bloomberg Hi. I'm Mike Bloomberg I'm the bank. That's that's his job okay so but You know I just want to say before it's wonderful running into you and we're heading back over to to the To the gallery there. It's too bad. They don't have songs at the end of the vote. That should play America. The beautiful you know. I thought when when Nancy Pelosi went up and she had the American flag there in the beginning thing I thought she was going to ask everybody to stand to do that. or the pledge allegiance or something to just look just acknowledged that this country actually did Sam for something and that we are about something that were still working progress and we are going to have our finest hour today by doing what we're doing and and be around to is going to around to say around us and I'll tell the Democrats run into here today. After after this is done day I knew we all WanNa for Christmas you WanNa let Congresswoman slut can go on the offensive teacher Outta go on Defense Michigan putting her unto defend. Now I know and I'm those tend. Moderates changed the whole ballgame because a Nancy wants to job narrows down all the time in the CIA. I know I'm planning to have a little bit of during the holidays. I'll have some kind of the thing we have to. You know you've got to go through a kind of a relearning ever the book Fake fake president. We're going to stop by your office. That's this is this is this is this. Get you on the offensive against trump. You don't win by being defensive. The second thing that the Democrats have to do as soon as this vote is done is there are. I think. Close to two hundred and fifty bills. This House has passed. I want people to know the people who came out the non voters came out in the off your election. They come out and they made. They made this Democratic House and they put a lot of women and and if they don't see any result from that I don't know if they'll come back again and vote I need to. I need them. No at least that the Democrats passed two hundred fifty bills and hr one the very first bill that got past the camping opinions. This is something you wrote. Forty years ago about how our elections are run. How they're how it should be simple and easy for people we'll be able to vote instead of all the roadblocks and why doesn't the Senate they've not passed a single one of these bills? They won't pass them. They won't even talk about them. This has been a very active very busy house session. And all this stuff just sits on Mitch McConnell's desk and they don't know how to nail him with the names of the the bills. They just say two hundred bills over there. He hasn't signed well. This podcast we have. We're GONNA have a special section on this podcast called pass the bills and not pass the buck walk past the bills and we're going to name the bills. If they don't actually have a real name you know for operation. Fond of Republicans have that law have names for all of the cleanest drew bill by the Republicans is poison yesterday. Exactly right so so but this is where this is where our side. We always need a little help. which which is weird that we have a communication problem when we are we? We had the writers the communicators the artist all the things they rail against Hollywood etc.. And somehow we were unable to often communicate what this really says. I'm very very simple. Remember with Kevin Phillips Republicans go for the Jugular and the Democrats. Go for the Kappler's flers. Yeah they're much more aggressive with less evidence for kinder people we don't juggling over the jungle. You all have blood sprays everywhere. Were in people die. You don't want to die. We you know we we. Actually we are filled with a heart that has loved it. I believe Nancy Pelosi when she says this that that that she was raised. This way I do believe she doesn't pray. In the meantime I actually believe she praised. And listen. I as you know not been over the years. There's you know a big supporter of Nancy Pelosi. But I want I seriously want started go fund me page to bill statute her just because she she has pulled. This off amazes business. It's been amazing to watch this business of how short on this business of caution by Nancy's cost for she's lost four four five last congressional election. This is the past route. This is the the future is this. Isn't there it's older than Bernie. You're dealing just saying you're dealing. The Democrats are dealing with a corrupt government of corporatism. Militarism nepotism correct. What are they waiting for right? Well I think that this day. Today is a turning point in that and and many of them if John F. Kennedy Kennedy was alive and his writing the sequel to profiles encourage these fifteen plus Democrats. That are running in districts that trump won in sixteen. It's been a real profile encourage so so far today to hear them. Stand up there and say what they've said knowing who cost him the election and they put their country and they put truth and honesty ahead of their own political political agenda and their career. That's been a powerful thing to see today and I'm guessing it's inspired other members of Congress who like you know this. This is not my time to just sit back and be quiet. So we're we're here on actually a historic day and I think many lilies are taking place not just on the House floor. You're not just in the gallery but all across this country and we are going to. We're going to zoom out of the gate. Everybody's going to be talking to their families over the holidays and this will have been an exhilarating the moment for all of us. I truly truly believe that. And you as you know. I can't get more pessimistic than me so hear me out when I say this is just the first step we have to around two with all the other articles of impeachment that have destroyed. The constitution imperilled the republic because otherwise he's going to get away with it and he's going to go all Louis Souto election day. Who Do you predict is going to win until November? You predicted right in two thousand sixteen when you said trump was gonNA win everybody laughs that well it's not next November and and I'm not a a soothsayer okay. If the election were today who would win I hate to say it. Donald J trump. I'm sorry here's here's what I actually believe if the election were today. Hillary won by three million votes in the popular vote. The Democrat whoever the Democrat would be on the ballot tonight That Democrat would win the popular vote by four four to five million votes and trump could still win selected by the Electoral College. Exactly which the Republicans the Democrats have lost to election shen since two thousand because they won the popular vote locks the Electoral College. And you still can't get him to go. After the Electoral College and Joan going to national lobby the first to say AH citizen of this country. I should have been organizing something the day after a bushes. The the Supreme Court that was appointed by Bush's dad appointed sunny boy as president of the United States while they were still counting the ballots in Florida. Just a one more example of how we don't have a true democracy and I should of the next day with with others you should. We all should have done this. We should have we should have made the the the attempt to get rid of the electoral college back. Then you know it's underway. They got around. It's called the national popular vote. We may not be able to get rid of the Electoral College. But we have enough states. Now do you know about the standard of the national popular vote. There's been enough states down with one hundred hurt and ninety six electoral votes. To seventy one hundred have passed this law. That says our state's electors will go to ever ever wins the popular vote nationwide. Even if our state didn't vote for that person. We believe the person in the White House should be the person the American people want. We've got enough states that have passed that law to equal one hundred ninety six electric correct parties. Not Making a big deal. So there's only seventy four more yet when I've I said to Republicans. Is You want to support this because this could come back on you. Someday you're GonNa wish that the popular vote was the was the real vote so anybody anybody listening to this look up national popular vote Dot Org It's a really good idea. We're only seventy four electoral votes away states at hold those it was PROPOSED IN RUN by Steve Silverstein an entrepreneur from San Francisco. He's got seven staff and they've got all these bills through California Illinois Connecticut Maryland. Seven staff it's a lot easier than we think before we go. I want to just say this Aw You brought up the two thousand vote. Where U N you're running the Green Party and and of course you know you have this sense then people blame you and this and that and whatever ever accept Gore doesn't who got.

"When I'm in the Cannon Office Building here on Capitol Hill The House Office Building of this is For a certain number of representatives have their offices right across the street from the House of Representatives. And I I ducked into Our Congressman from Flint Michigan Dan Kildee and To see him and coming out of the door was none other than Ralph Nader and It was a both stunning and wonderful to see him at spent a number of years. Since I've seen Ralph in person and I asked him if he would just sit down with me here in representative killed his office. Any graciously representative allowed us to The sit in here and talk to Mr Native for a few minutes row Welcomed first of all to my podcast and our our U celebrating Impeachment Day here in DC To many of the Democrats are purposes remark. Michael by this is a sad day is not a sad data glorious day to hold the president. Trump lawless outlaw that he has buffoon ignorant Narcissistic Racist Sexist Sexual Predator serial liar insider to violence Just for starters is that all you got Ralph really right. Yeah you're right. It's always a glorious day whenever we take our constitution and enacted powers in favor of the people. But it's it it is on the level that it's sad on is that we. The people should not have had to suffer for three years with this individual. WHO's in the White House and what he's been doing Ryan and and I'm not talking about just the big stuff that we all know about why he's being impeached? I'm talking about every day. His administration has cut out a regulation out of the EPA. He has given over more of our public lands to oil and gas companies. I mean you just go down the list. He's made our oceans of more dangerous. He's I mean these things don't even appear hear on the news anymore because we're so consumed with the fact that he conspired with people in another country to rig the next selection and the Democrats went with a narrow assault Basically they went with the Ukraine. which doesn't move the public opinion? Needle Edel important is that is in terms of influencing the next election but they had ten other arrows in your quiver. He's impeaching himself in one area after another though. Gross contempt of Congress biondi Ukraine number. One the spending money does not authorize that violates the power of the purse that would have outraged it matters that the monuments enrich himself lawless wars overseas yup and the other one which you alluded to he is shredding the life saving protections and the Health Protection of the American people by disabling and dismantling EPA and occupational safety and Health Administration Auto Safety Agency crushing civil servants pushing out the scientist. Why isn't that an impeachable offense that was right in the house? Judiciary Report Michael. They made a big deal out of the defiant refusal to enforce the La Stir. You know he's turned the. US government over to the pollution poisoned. Listen I can tell you why they chose this route. I'm not in on the inner circle of how they made the decision to do the impeachment. But I think look you know. It's kind of like a comedian has to know the room. You have to read the room and I think Nancy Pelosi Democrats correctly. Read the room that that that list I cut you off. There's a thirty or forty more things on that list. It's so many things. The American people who work hard every day. Hey many of them work two jobs a few some work three jobs. They're barely able to keep their heads above water to try to keep track to try to focus the American public around forty articles of impeachment. I mean it's like it's like me asking you right now named the thirty two teams in the NFL. Go ahead Ralph. I'm waiting yeah go ahead and you no. It's like it's like Michael Schmidt your time said on meet the press. The Democrats haven't been able to get get their arms around this guy. He's he's always a ten lies ahead of them.

And they're going to give him a pass you don't he's going to say he's GonNa say Nancy Pelosi had the majority. She could pass all those wild charges that I violated the Constitution. But she didn't do it and don't you know why because it's all lies. It's all fake. I didn't do anything wrong. He's GonNa say that a thousand times of your trump impersonation that is that that is the genius of him. I and I and I've tried to say this from the beginning when I I said before the election that he was GonNa Win Living Michigan. I could see what was going on. And and and of course he showed up he was he had a rally every week. Leading up to the election and And Hillary unfortunately only came once or twice to shoot Michigan. Didn't go at all of Wisconsin Kansin and and I I just I went to a couple of his rallies and I'm like wow he. This guy is good and if you don't respect your opponent even if you don't actually have some sort of I don't know what the word is not admiration but some sort of understanding of who the enemy is not the adversary Surrey. Well and I think a lot of liberals just wanted to go trump. No one's GonNa vote for him going to be of coronation. It's GonNa Reality Show. Oh reality show. People love reality shows. He was on for fourteen seasons. You don't me seasons. I was on with my show for okay. I mean Seinfeld what he get seven or eight. I'm telling friends maybe doesn't maybe I don't think it doesn't but trump fourteen seasons and an out where I live. I understood why you know. We don't know trump trump in Michigan. Who's trump about queens? Wouldn't even work. Here's what we know Queens. Archie bunker was from there and and trump. That's it too big. It's a different size economic scale. That's all we know about Queens. Just put on a book. Mark Green called fake president trump and my echo epilogue is directed to the trump voter. It's called fake President President. Why why are they right enough to trump lord if they read the epilogue you get my take take on how to convey and communicate with trump voters who he has betrayed a thousand ways? That's a great title by the way. It's a little redundant if I can and say you now you say president. You don't need to say we already know the fakery that's going to one hundred thousand. Workers Exposed silicosis. Br He's breaking the protection of Osha. Inter dine you WanNa try to actually convince trump voters to change their minds. That's a lot of work. I did that the first year and I think a lot of eight million Obama voters voted for trump. Okay so we can reach out and we can convince them to. I know a lot of people in Flint and Saginaw Detroit Who didn't like trump at really at all not certainly not personally but they wanted to throw a hand grenade or Molotov into the system that had let them down and so trump appeared to burn appeared to be that two people to sell he also Michael? He also lied. Tracy was going to get them. More manufacturing jobs ally rely he was going to get him cleaner air water and health insurance ally he was gonNA cut their taxes. Ally cut the taxes for the rich created. A deficit deficit drained the money for the repair. The infrastructure and sent to builds the children grandchildren America and including air grandchildren. Would they ever tolerate having a relationship with a neighbor or friend or coworker. Who has that kind of monster immoral monster liar? Sexual Predator senator. I don't I don't buy this. I think what's happened. is they hated the alternative so much and they hated Washington turning their back on. I am so much that they they saw this bomb thrower. You said we're going to. We're going to send our votes that yeah yeah. I think that's that is what happened. But now the people that are for trump trump three after watching him for three years. They're still for him. I think the whatever energy we have left in us because we're all filled with despair. There's a Malays that's across the country right now now. All our focus has to be on getting the people on our side the people who believe in these things that we believe in. Don't stay home this time. Let's come out. Let's get everybody out.

"ralph nader" Discussed on RUMBLE with MICHAEL MOORE

"And I was a senior in high school government teacher took us to downtown Flint went to the Ama Auditorium to hear a speaker turns out that all the schools in the county had since school bus loads of students to hear the speaker his name was Ralph Nader and he was the scourge of General Motors and we and Flint were in the hometown the birthplace of General Motors Seti here Ralph Nader speak to almost ten thousand people in the birthplace of his sworn enemy quite a moment and I remember being so inspired by his speech and so moved moved and almost deciding at that moment that I had to live a different kind of life I had I had to be active in a way that nobody had really taught us to be as citizens of this country but that day that stuck with me forever and Ralph Nader to me as a hero years later years later I found myself out of a job and Ralph Nader heard about that and said come to DC worked for me. I'll give you a job and that's what I did I went to Marston. DC and I worked at Ralph's headquarters for a couple of years. It was really exciting time. I learned a lot. I put out an a little weekly media Critique newsletter called the Moore's weekly and he funded it and provided provided the office space and the staff and it was quite a good thing but through my adult years. I've also had a complicated relationship. Hip with Ralph Nader and After a couple of years there it is headquarters and I decided to make my first movie Roger and me about Flint and General Motors. He didn't like that and said that it was time to end the the endeavor and so I was once again out of a job and continued making the film collecting unemployment while making it No income and when the film came out and and become a big hit people in his office publicly were critical of the film and it really shocked me it was kind of a felt like Some kind of weird betrayal. I never understood it. But then you can't try to figure out out It's just not the way it works. with him but over the years he continued to do all the good work that he had done. So many things that pupil today forget or not. Don't even know that we wouldn't have things like an environmental protection. Agency like a National Highway Safety Safety Department of Transportation All these rules and regulations and things to save lives and and Protect our food and water earn all on and on and I it would take the rest of the podcast to tell you all the good that Ralph Nader stunning all the lives lives he. He has saved hundreds of thousands maybe millions of lives. There never would have been a seatbelt in a car or an airbag wouldn't be. Oh my God I could just go down the hall again. It's you get the point. And so when he decided to run for president in two thousand and because I at that time and actually for her a decade or two before that time had been writing about and talking about the situation with our environment with our planet. Nobody was talking talking about this stuff. And Ralph was and and the Green Party was neither. The Green Party was a good idea that the Democratic Party needed a something something on. Its left to nudge. It push it poke it do whatever was needed to be done to try and create a more equitable society and try to save this planet. So Ralph's idea. Was We have to have the Green Party on the ballot in every state in the way to do that is all we need is five percent of the vote by five percent of all Americans who vote voted for the Green Party. Green Party would stay on the ballot Throughout the country that's up five percent per state it just. It was a combined five percent percent of all so in other words. Let's say you know. Nobody voted for the Green Party in in twenty states. But in the thirty states it equaled five percent of the total voted the whole country than the Green party existed in his plan was that he would go and campaign in the states that would not hurt the Democratic candidate in this case it was Al Gore so he campaign and states like California and New York states. That were already going to go blue or red. You know Republican or Democrat Texas. You Know Oh campaign there you know. There's no way that the Democrat was GonNa Win Texas and most of the South but not campaign in the swing states where it might hurt Al Gore and so I don't use a whole bunch of people well known people people much more while known that I was Eddie vedder Pearl Jam and Patti Smith and I don't use a whole bunch of people got on board the bus to go and speak at rallies to play play at rallies for Ralph. We had great turnouts. Things are going fine in them was time for the debate commission to decide who would get to be at the presidential who we get to be on the stage of the presidential debates and Al Gore was insisting that Ralph Nader not be allowed on the stage and Obviously because he was afraid it would it would hurt him but again the the nature strategy was not to hurt him was just to go and campaign in the states. Were it was kind of a you know already decided who was going to win that state but one score one about convincing successfully. The Day Commission did not let Ralph Nader in the debates. That's when things went awry for Ralph Ralph and Ralph no longer cared about helping or or not hurting Gore and decided to start campaigning in the swing states. It's and This went back on what he promised to do to myself and to others and so a bunch of US got off the bus. We couldn't support art that We couldn't allow George W Bush to become president. United States I was so terrified. That what Ralph was doing was going to hurt Gore and helped Bush that in the last week before the two thousand election. I put together my own tour of the the One St. I thought this was going to come down to Florida and I Went from city to city throughout Florida and build the tour as a nadir voter asks you to vote for Gore and my pitch was look. I live in New York state. or WHO's going to Win New York. Stay by huge margin so I have the luxury of voting for Ralph Ralph Nader and I will vote for Ralph Nader in New York state but you in Florida. It's way too close here and you don't have that luxury if you like Ralph and your four Ralph. I'm asking all the voters in Florida To please vote for L. Gore and one of my last one of the last night said before or the election that was in Tallahassee and the next morning I woke up and I walked out onto the onto the street and walking right by me on the promenade was governor her Jeb Bush and he sees me and I see him and he walks over to me and he holds out his hand shake shake my hand and he says to me. How much did the Democrats to come down here and I said not enough? Of course. They didn't pay me anything but the headline in that morning and the Tallahassee newspaper was something the effect of Nader Nader supporter more Colon Vote Gore. And it's like on the front page page so Bush had seen that and you know this is not of course what the Bush people wanted. They wanted all the voters in Florida to get out there and vote for Nader and here I was criss. Crossing the state telling NATO voters Azania voter myself that in Florida. You can't do that. You gotTa vote for Gore. You cannot let Bush get into the White House. So was I successful. Well yes once. They finally counted all the votes votes year later They realized that Gore had in fact won but daddy Bush's Judges Justices on the Supreme Court I put an end to the vote. Counting on Florida would let the vote be finished and then voted ruled in favor of Sonny's candidacy so Bush Bush appointees to the Supreme Court ended up essentially guaranteeing and saying that the new president has as would be George W Bush and that was that well of course a lot of people ended up. Blame.

What the Democratic debates showed

"There's a lot to talk about what your your started them debate last night I I would spend a few minutes talking about it it was a shouting match for awhile and I'm not a fan of that you've heard me rants about the panelists that we have the excessive commentators sometimes six eight ten twelve wins election day it seems like that's bled into the Bates too many moderators can't control the mikes they shout over each other that's that was my initial take away well yeah they they have this interesting dynamic so there's this game theory of who's going to end and for for some parts you know they would let someone who's talking over some well we're not actually grab the Mike so there was a incentive for that the combatants as it were to kind of do that and it just makes for really bad communication they will I you know towards the end they stand stop doing it yes what was really annoying was when the moderator would say give me one word and then they go on for let's just raise your hand one word answers garden yeah it was a little sophomoric but for the most part you know yesterday's debate was clearly the a team I don't know if Colin agrees with me but they were the the pros was much more interesting to watch you know you have the people who seemed a little more presidential or or you could imagine going toe to toe with trump where as I think Wednesday night it was a you know a little bit more and it did pretty well but it really was kind of the B. team yeah well it with regard to the format and then I think the incentive for any candidate is kinda have one of these moments right one of these moments of people be pleasant about talking about something allies people come in with pre rehearsed lines and they try and find a man trying to ploy and some fall flat some do well they come out here since food that that that was pretty clearly scripted but you found a great place to deploy so in and when you have a stage that big even over the course of two hours I mean I think I saw Biden spoke the most last night it was a twelve total minutes yeah yeah the others are shocked shocked up into five to six to seven minutes total over the course of two hours is just a very very difficult endeavor it's not great but it makes for good entertaining I should know this but I think in a window this down as we call here then the next round I some of these inch bench marks with their with polling and and fundraising so it should get further when I'm down back I suspect we're gonna have big debates for a while well there's ten more you watch and some guy just lost I lost four hours my life this week watching this often and I really didn't learn anything I think I have a better sense of who these people are in there literally three or four people I I'm pretty turned and I'm on the radio about politics and I don't know who these people were Merion Williamson I miss you know what you think things to say I so I've been thinking about this why are we including these people these are kind of gap flies that and I thought we should really give them of of bi level stage but then I thought about it and what we're trying not to have is someone with a little bit of a following get out of the tense and and start a third party thing a Ralph Nader thing so it's better excuse my language arts better have people in the tent being out there not outside the tent is the governor of Montana not make the cut in and Marion Williams he got into lake yeah my goodness you know I'll say this I I gave a small contribution to a couple these people the more moderate people Hickenlooper and Bennett to try to get him on the stage and now I'm thinking boy I kind of messed up because they really did not bring anything to the table they didn't say anything a unique or interesting I mean Hickenlooper stood up for capitalism I suppose but I think we're going to quickly see some winnowing it'll be interesting to see if any of these people can see the writing on the wall and and and let their narcissism down a little and just step out of the race do you think this is come out here since shining moments was just for a chance to kind of step up as it as a serious contender yeah she's always been very plausible on paper when you look at her resume look as she is her record kinda knew she was gonna be danger in the sun this type settings as a prosecutor prosecutors lawyers tend to do pretty well in these types of settings yes so I I think there's some buzz coming out of this debate about her it's really interesting it you know we've talked about bite and whether he's a strong front runner weak front runner is very very interesting that the first blood drawn is based on comments and positions he held in the nineteenth seventies are not we are arguing about busing last night that is the moment that came out of the debate last night it's a really really fast and dynamic and one that I think is going to continue to play out for Joe Biden is taken so many positions that are just completely at odds with today's what he knew they were coming you know I mean the the punches were telegraphed everybody and he still kind of just could not articulate his defenses and he let Qemali Heris use him as a yeah I mean this was her night she had a foil and he really if he had some of those scripted can a king and a rejoinder is to these these these punches I think he would have done well but he did

"Last fifty years is a commercialism has invaded these zones tremendously when I was growing up was unheard of for corporations to direct market to kids bypassing parental authority and supervision other than maybe bubblegum now it's open season. It's multi hundred billion dollar business. They get kids age four five six seven eight. They they shaped their diet say shaped their military toys, they shaped cosmetics for girls at age five on and on. And then they get them to be participants in violent programming and interactive violent TV this'll be unheard of years ago. They'd be run out of town. So we have commercialized society in defiance of the wisdom of all organized religions going back over two thousand years. Everyone of them warned there. Believer's against giving too much power to the merchant class. Why? Because the merchant class is a mono culture. It is maniac. Ily focused on profiteering on enrichment at the expense of all other values. They will trample him coop. Quantum destroy them degrade them, exploit them. And so it goes back, many, many many hundreds of years, and that's why I say the global corporations all about commercializing everything they're looking at that five six hundred billion dollar public school budget as an investment opportunity. I mean, there there isn't anything. They don't want to commercialize nothing. Not even not even our genetic. Inheritance? Not even our Redwood trees that are eighteen hundred years old, they'd cut him down minute. So I hate then to to end the podcast on. Marshall note. But the the question we always finish on is what are three books you've read that have influenced you that you would that you would recommend to others, and they can also, of course, get them from the library. Well, I mean, I I think very much of a book that showed how executive pay compensation distorts the whole priorities of these large corporations by leading to trillions of dollars of wasteful stock buybacks to increase the metrics for executive compensation. So I would recommend the CEO pay machine by Steve Clifford who has actually on a number of these corporate compensation committees. I think Michael Lewis has opened up a literary appeal of talking about government public services. I think Alan Hirsch is very clear book called impeaching the president past present future is a very educational nonpartisan paperback that just came out, I think. In the SIEM nNcholas Talib's book. He's the original author of black swan. But he wrote a book called skin and a game where he basically said that people in power will much more likely abused power. If they don't have skin in the game like politicians and corporate executives and corporate immunities impunity. He's I like the more recent book the age of surveillance capitalism by Sheshona Zubov fan, the impact of the Facebooks and nego- goes. And personally, I like my brand new fable called how the rats reform the congress 'cause I want to try to make people laugh enough to be serious laughed themselves seriously into organizing, congress watchdog groups in every congressional district. The one percent of the congress reflecting public opinion. The one percent of the people reflecting public opinion organized as a civic hobby. The civic congress watchdog Haga hobby. To summon the senators representatives to their periodic town meetings, and send them back with their instructions on behalf of the people and the rats reform, the congress dot org website gives serious instruction a Honda starter.

I knew was out there. And I didn't understand until I listened to today explained she downloaded explained wherever get your podcasts. Get it on apple podcasts Stitcher Spotify wherever you are. Currently listening today. Explain by box. It is excellent. Do you think we're a better country than we were fifty years ago in some ways, certainly in in terms of entryways, civil rights civil liberties for people is better, but certainly better environmentally. Although there are new hazards that keep coming over the horizon people are eating if they want to more nutritious food. They have more nutrition choices not just tiptop bread in the supermarkets anymore. Access to Justice is being restricted criminal Justice system is worse. Can you believe then in the sixties and seventies? Look at the mass incarceration rates look going from less than a million to several million people in jail in thirty years. So it's mixed. We shouldn't start selecting the bad parts, and then becoming pessimistic or just selecting. Good parts and becoming pollyannaish like a Harvard. Professor hasn't recent writings, what do you think of Howard Schultz running as an independent? I think if he sticks to it because he's a multi-billionaire he will get regular media. He will be able to get on fifty state ballots whether he can stay on another subject. He will get polls regularly, which means he'll get a chance to start popping up five ten fifteen percent in the polls away Perot did. However, he's up against a two party to -opoly Perot got nineteen million votes in nineteen ninety two and not a single electoral college vote. Not one shows you the final gateway protection for the two party duopoly. He can turn it into a three way race. He will provoke the political bigotry of being called spoiler by. The democrats. The polls may show he is pulling from liberal Republicans as well as Democrats. So he turns it into three way race. And then someone who's a multi-billionaire says three way race. What about a four way race and Mark Cuban gets in and then it's off to the races. I must say I predicted this years ago, people would say to me Ralph is ever going to be a viable third party. And I said, well, I'd like to see one from grassroots America. But it's more likely that it'll be initiated by a multi-billionaire. And that's what we're going to see from nylon, by the way, as we're not just two thousand twenty. So I'm going to ask you Allison up front zero questions about two thousand or two thousand and four just because I think I've nothing nude add to that conversation. But what I want to ask you about here is a more philosophical question. When does it make Wendy, you believe people should run for speaking? Here the presidency, but really anything inside the party versus try to mount an independent bid because I think with Trump and Sanders have some clear evidence that the parties can change quite a bit. If you're running inside of them. And I think one question people have about Schultz is why is he running outside? What is he bringing to that the the needs to happen through the dynamics of an of an independent bid? What do you think are the conditions under which somebody should run inside the parties, and what are the conditions under which they should run outside? Will they look at history, and they don't have a strong foothold inside one of the two major parties. They would say, you know, small parties have started most of the Justice movements in America inside the electoral Raina deliver departing eighteen forty anti-slavery the women's rights to vote party, the proper Progressive Party labour party, an entropy century almost everything that the two parties or one of them picked up as a major issue.

"So in that way. I I was lucky if you are thirteen today, you would have access to so much more information. I mean anything could possibly want in the world that would not be a big deal to get the encyclopedia Britannica I'd be unbelievably limiting and absurd. Do you think you'd be better? A worse informed as a thirteen year old today. The cursive abundance. The fact that thing get any information at their fingertips means they don't ingest information and retain it in their memory and therefore build on it. It's when I call the curse. Of abundance one that said of American encyclopedic came that was scarcity that that was a rarity that you know, tripled the number of informed pages in our household. Not that we didn't have many books, but it it was that sense that you read them. I mean, I grew up near the first law school in American Litchfield, Connecticut before Harvard and Yale Law School got started. And they recreated it, and it's a tourist attraction on I went there a few years ago. It was called tapping Reeve law school restored, and they had two large bookcases, and they were all LA books in America, virtually on two large book. Well, now, if you're a law student, you're gonna feel pretty precious opportunity to read those books, you tend to retain it. You digest it. Now, you give a youngster book, it's almost like. You're insulting them. Do. I have to carry this one person told me fourteen year old recently, do I have to carry this as it online. I said, yeah, you do have to carry. I think about this a lot in the sense of. I don't know how to think about the kind of information abundance. We have now, and whether it will long-term make us up a better worse country. I want to believe it will make us better. And certainly, I am someone, you know, telecom we call it will call info voor, I'm someone who you know. I got I loved when I found blogs and online reading journalists home, and you know, like I used to spend most of my nights in bookstores. I mean, I just like being around books and words, I find it calming and on the other hand, I can feel the way in which there so much now that I find it even harder to focus on any one thing. And I've kind of pulled back and read less online and more and more books, and I don't know if that's me just becoming. Older and Grangier or there's really something there. I I was thinking about something you said earlier in our conversation about how people are slaves to two contracts. And I I think that what when something that you're saying there is complexity can defeat us an easy way to to defeat people's to make these too complex to find out. What's the truth or what you're even really telling them, and I worry that spaces of unbelievable information abundance are also places where it's very easy to get people to turn off because it's overwhelming it's impossible to know, everything that why try to really know any of it. I think corporates political strategies rely on complexity is a strategy 'cause complexity shrinks the audience that could possibly confront them. This is a big Elizabeth Warren argument, and also that's what jargon is all about. That's what lawyers jargon is all about. It's like proprietary tools to to further the monopoly of the legal profession. Russian the same with the medical profession. So this is a long standing far before the internet technique of of power structures is complexity enormous detail look at the tax code only a few people can understand it. I once had lunch with the head of the IRS in the Carter administration as that was an interesting thing. And I said, you know, I've been told by people the insurance part of the tax code is so complex that fewer people understand. It didn't understand Einstein's theory of relativity. What do you think? He said, I think that's right. I said, well that is why you can't enforce it. He said, yeah, we can't even find the actuaries for expert witnesses because there's so few of them that grasp it and they're hired by the insurance companies. What do you think of Elizabeth Warren? I think she gets on core. For power, which is very rare for liberal and progressive candidates. She gets it on Wall Street..

"The basic issue is. Are they serious enough to put serious people on the front media stage? So these people can mobilize and get enough. People to focus on the decision maker. Let me try to offer a media perspective on this just trying to think about it. Because what when I hear you say that here's what I wonder that fifties sixties golden age you're talking about I'm not certain that. I think you know, when I look back at it. And you would know better, of course. But that when I look back at it. There was internal more serious news or even serious coverage of of social movement. But what I do think was true was it if you got on that front page it had a lot more potency. If you know, you got the new Republic and the New York Times to write about highway safety in the way that you did it was more likely, you could get the attention of members of congress. And if you've got that attention, it was also more likely they could pass a Bill. Whereas now, what would happen is that, you know, like, the public option is great example. I actually don't agree with you that it could have been that. It was not dropped at the last minute. I covered that. I have a different view. But putting aside who's right about that that got an enormous amount of attention. It was a very serious issue. But what happened is that has got the attention serious people got it. And I think if people like Jacob hacker here who knows an enormous amount about healthcare is eight I believe still Yale and helped inject that into public debate. Then it became a corresponding issue on the other side had Fox News had Rush Limbaugh these things it didn't weren't there in the fifties. And sixties in warrant there to say, oh that would be socialism that would be a death panel. That would be that would be that would be. And so I think it's not just that you have a, you know, more competitive, and in some cases, I do agree more sensational media environment. I think it's also that you know, you have much of a conveyor from the media to the congress to legislation every piece of that is more broken than it was in the in the fifties and sixties and seventies such that you could get a great story about this. And it still wouldn't go anywhere in my view Marlow. My recollection by way. Authentically is that Obama dropped the public option before he started negotiating what is known as ObamaCare? Now. I mean there are different versions of a public option. But the option was killed by Joe Lieberman. And Ben Nelson. I mean, I I was I didn't have that. And they basically said at the end like not not vote for that Lieberman than said. There was an effort to to create a compromise where you could buy Medicare at fifty five and Lieberman said he would kill the entire Bill that you're right. But Obama never picked it up from the beginning and really pushed you're right on who destroyed it in the Senate. But what you said as is accurate but incomplete let me give you a fuller picture of the difference between two sixty seventies. Now. Phil Donahue had ten million viewers. He put on the breakthrough people and civil rights labor, women's rights, LGBT rights environmental people consumer advocates. He got him before ten million people more than once the press picked up other TV picked up. They're all gone now all the radio program people the talk show hosts, including Larry King overnight, huge audience. We used to get on. We would evaluate the presidential candidates. We would highlight consumer legislation we would expose things all gone now. The.

"But if you break it down, how many people did it really take to put the environmental issue on the map in the and in one thousand nine hundred seventy how many people did it take to alert Reagan that Republicans and Democrats wanted him to sit down to go it with the Soviets on arms control. It's shockingly small, but they're reflecting public opinion. Is this what maybe ram Lincoln said with public sentiment? You can do almost anything without it's very very difficult. Now, go back to our elementary school elementary school has as one of its purposes inadvertent or otherwise is to raise a students into a believing how powerless they are they're not they're not taught any kind of civic engagement with the community with few exceptions. They're not taught civic skills. I mean, they can be taught free of information laws and how to use them to state or federal level in.

He says, no not at all. They get it. Then we'll have to go into it as deep as law schools do, but we're we're raising twelve classes of children as we speak from K to twelve in into studied powerlessness never told in all kinds of ways forget, it believe don't think forget it. You know, just learn how to manipulate a computer screen and write code learn how to be lucrative cogs in some big corporate wheel. We'll don't learn how to be effective citizens.

"Show on the box media podcast network. Mike estate is Ralph Nader who of course, you know. Of course, you've heard of I I'm fascinated by nature. He has had I think one of the most interesting lives and one of the most important lives of of of any American around today. I think people my generation, including me, mostly know him for the two thousand and two thousand four presidential runs. But before that he created like wield into being this remarkable consumer movement that has affected almost everything in our lives are the what is in the cars, we drive how the food we eat his checked. I mean, it it's one of the most remarkable examples of policy entrepreneurship that there is in existence. I muse named one of the most one hundred influential Americans by life by the Atlantic and by time, so I wanted to talk to him for a while just to understand how he thinks he's still out there. Doing interesting work. He's got a podcast. He's got a new book out called how the rats reformed congress. He's tireless just a tireless human being one thing that I want to note because people might wonder where it is. We talk about third party candidacies in here. I I made a decision yet the decision I've made in other podcasts like this one to not talk about the thing that I did not believe I could add any light on Ralph Nader has been asked many, many, many, many, many, many many many many times about the two thousand election. He has a very standard spiel he gives on that. I read it when I was preparing for this. And I did not want to just repeat that I was not going to change his mind. He's not going to change your mind. So we talk about third party candidacies, and I guess a little bit about his in a high altitude way. I wanted a podcast. It was more about the way he thinks and about other moments in his career than a podcast that walked back along ground that I think has been pretty well trod and so much so that I don't see a lot of light left in it. But we do talk about Howard Schulz's potential candidacy. We do talk about you know, how voters make decisions between these sides. So so we get it at a bit. Anyway, I think it's a pretty interesting conversation. It's fascinating to to hear to hear the way he thinks about things, and I hope you enjoyed as well as always my Email is as we're con- show box dot com again as we're con- show at vox dot com. Here's Ralph Nader Ralph Nader walk on the guest. Thank you. Let me begin here. What does it mean to you to be a citizen? What is the role of a citizen? Whoa. The role. Obviously is you're able to vote. I mean, that's primal obligation in democracy of though, it's minimal engagement being a citizen is is is something that requires an adjective, which is a public Public Citizen means you don't just take care of your private life. Your family your kids, but you go into the public arena, you go to town meetings. You go to marches demonstrations you go to courtrooms you go to neighborhood gatherings to deal with issues of the community issues that as Thomas Jefferson. Said of self-governance things that you can't solve for yourself, and you got solve together with other people. So it means working different hierarchies, you you gotta work at the local state, national international level, and there are enough people around so their particular inclinations temperaments choices or provide more than is necessary. More than the one percent, the as it is ever necessary reflecting public opinion to turn public policy around. No matter how powerful corporations are or the opponents one percent of the people organizing the congressional districts, for example, representing public opinion could get Medicare for all could get living wage for all could get all the things through congress because you know, after all are only five hundred thirty five of them and were millions back home, and we know their names. So it's really astonishing to me that people don't know let the the phrase. Of action in a civic democracy is it's the congress people. It's the state legislature. Those is the smallest but most powerful branches of government under our constitutions in your most recent book watch I think it's now your penultimate most recent book, you.

"With Ralph Nader George Noory with you here. Ralph back in nineteen sixty five if you had the capabilities of Email, social networking and things like that. Would you have changed your approach at all? No, I think it was more effective person person going up to the Senate now connected with good professional staff. Those days they had staff that were very professional. Now, they have k street lobbyists who up there for a few years representing nice conflict of interest. And then you go back for higher paying jobs with these corporate lobbies so Mike Grischuk roaches. Great book when the Senate worked for us back in the nineteen sixties and seventies. And we got those wonderful legislation that has saved so much prevented disease and better workplace safety Ardo, safety and cleaner, air and water. So I I think that the Email the social media it tells you what's going on. You know, what meetings they are? And it's unparalleled in getting information. But there's nothing like person to person because you can't get people to turn out we send emails. Events to tens of thousands of people, and you're lucky if you get ten people just so overloaded, so we believe in telephone calls letters person to person meetings. That's what really gets things done. Good point. Let's take some calls with your Ralph. Let's go to David truck. Driving in Arizona talking about our night people. Hi, david. Go ahead. George. Thank you, sir. The reason I'm calling that you mentioned person to person connection, I'm not actually the solve for this. If we were to pay into our tax base. Everybody has a burden your income the amount of money you make the amount of your burden, but you ride off and what you dumped yourself from where you are. But if we paid into our tax base like a 4._0._1._K plan where you would actually invest in America, you believe there. Now, those who would be the sharks swimming in the water do our our money's be vulnerable as next year. But in the process of making congress on the house works for every man from a minimum wage worker to the top earners votes dollar. And that makes America change who wanted to go for aids research, you can put your money in aids research, you want to vote for elderly care you can vote for elderly care, but your tax burden is paid by your heart. Which is what the vote was really supposed to me. That's kind of novel. What do you think Ralph the computer age, you can do it much easier in terms of sending your tax dollars for different functions and changes in the old days? It would be unbelievable costly thing. But it can be done. I mean, there are people who you know. Conscientious objectors, they don't want to send money to a bloated military budget with all the corruption of the defense contractors. They want to send money for care or they want to send money to preserve the air and water or to rebuild our schools. So it's it's an interesting point. Did he's making. But he mentioned minimum wage. That's another bad thing. Congress Sunday sat on seven dollars and twenty five percent minimum. Seven dollars and a quarter. An hour is the minimum wage nobody can live on that. And they refuse to raise it some some members of congress wanna raise it. But to congressional majorities have been sitting on the members of congress make a hundred dollars an hour. That's they work. Week, but they usually come in Tuesday with a locked in pension two hundred dollars an hour. Terrific pension life insurance terrific health insurance. Even some rent subsidy across all kinds of freebies. That's given them and they're sitting on thirty million Americans who work every day and are making less in inflation adjusted dollars. Then the workers made nineteen sixty eight and he refused McConnell. Senator McConnell speaker Ryan and others are sitting while they take cash campaign cash from various corporations and corporate executives impacts. So that's why on the back of this book, George I have ten crisp indictments of congress based on a lot of information. And when you send this book to your Senate Representative, and you say, you look at those ten indictments, and you tell me in the letter Senator my Senator my Representative you tell me what you react. Action is to this. I want you to see if you can rebut this. And you can't believe the power you will start having when you connect with your congress, and you build that citizens summons like sheriff citizens summons back to town meetings and to your own agenda, and then you'll find the in that town meeting, we'll be liberals and conservatives they will be pushing for the kind of America almost everybody wants and can get I I gotta tell you if I were running for political office. I'd use the back cover of this book is my agenda for the campaign. Yeah. I mean, it's a. One one of them is as a captive institution. Congress is a clear and present danger to our country it's feast on rock global corporate tower, oblivious to various fateful degradation of life on the planet. I mean here we're having climate disruption climate devastation, and and and majority congress says what? Yeah, that's just a cycle. You know, every ten thousand years. I mean, it's like, you know, it's it's a level of recklessness in ignorance that insults. The intelligence of the American people we are not being led by people that represent the best in us. It's the worst that often goes to the congress. I mean, I see ignorance in the congress staggering ignorance, they even got rid of the technology assessment office because they didn't want to be told that a lot of the technologies are pushing like dismiss a ballistic missile defense system, which is a complete boondoggle. Even. Society of his said, it's not gonna work and it hasn't worked. They spent about one hundred and eighty billion dollars on that. Oh my God. They spend fourteen billion dollars on this last year and the centers for disease control, which is designed to detect and head off global pandemics. It could destroy tens of millions of people. They get seven and a half billion dollars. We gotta get you behind something that we're pushing on this program Ralph, and that's trying to protect the power grid from either an x flare a solar flare from the sun or an EMP attack. That's the detonation of a nuke by a nation up in the atmosphere that would wipe out the power system to the United States yet wrote a book on did too. Yep. We had him on the show. All they do shovel more tens of billions. The Pentagon got more money even asked for and are retired generals. Nat Rosa can tell us the incredible waste that's going on and the whole huge subsidies bailouts all that stuff could be squeezed out and the money coming back to help America and alert America and that grid thing. That's frightening. China and Russia are embedded in our systems were better in their systems. If there's ever a war, they wouldn't have to have aircraft carriers are missiles, they could just push the button, push the button, the electrical grid and everything is involved with it would collapse they say that if it is out for a year, which is conceivable three hundred million Americans die. That's that's almost everybody. Yeah. It's crazy. Let's go to our congress. It can turn this around the beauty of our system is that the smallest branch of government is the most powerful. And and we know their names five hundred and thirty five senators and representatives, you know, when when I sent this book how the rats reformed the congress to people on Capitol Hill. This this disgusting book, it's a revolting book because it starts out with the rats in the toilet bowl. And I say, really. The congress. The congressional majorities are disgusting, and they're revolting, and they better shape up, and we're going to get the people back home to do it. And who better than the midnight riders the midnight. You've got it. We'll do it. And we'll help you first time caller west of the Mississippi we go let us go to not west of the Mississippi. It's east of the Mississippi. Let's go to S anonymously high s Brinks. Yes, I have a question and a comment. If people want to take my question is if people were to take your money the money out of the banking system thinking system and not put it back in congress listens. And keep it on the local. What it how fast would America be fixed? You mean like take all the cash out? Take all your cash out take it all out. What do you think? Well, you know, what I don't know if you've ever been to a Bank, but try to get your cash, they don't have enough money in the Bank. They don't have it. Ralph. I think you know, the state governments in the city government's George. They have hundreds of billions of dollars of tax money that they let Wall Street control and run and the fees are staggering. So there's an effort now called the public banking effort. It doesn't compete with the commercial banks. It just says look if California or New York have tens of billions of dollars pension money working money have their own banks. They'll save the taxpayer enormous amount of money, and it'll be much more accountable, and you will have to be bailed out and one of the models is the Bank of North Dakota. Here you have Republican North Dakota. It's had for a hundred years the Bank of North Dakota. And when the banks collapsed in two thousand eight nine on Wall Street the Bank in North Dakota didn't feel anything they were running prudently safely. They give student loans. Give loans to small business and to farmers. There's never been. Scandal. So as public banking movement in this country, so that your tax dollars that are already. In the custody of cities states counties can be run by public banks. That are accountable to you not by Wall Street banks with their staggering fees. Do you have a report card for any of the congressional folks on the rats were formed, congress dot org website? No. But we did an easy link to the various citizen groups that have it. That's another thing, by the way, most members of congress websites. They don't put their voting record on can you imagine? And I don't even think right. I don't even think they read anything they vote on. I think they have some congressional staff person. Who said, yeah, I saw it. I read it and do the I don't think the congress people read it they walk into the Senate floor, and they got some guy putting the thumb down or some up. Yes. Right. No. Yes. The lobbyists swarming. So the citizens pour into congress in this book, and it's just a wonderful sight. I think I think there's some interest in Hollywood in this book that would be a great movie Willard. The rap the lead. Yet. Get Willard the rat as the lead in the movie. Yeah. Well, there's a very mysterious ending to this book. It's only one hundred seventy pages very readable is very mysterious ending to this book. And it's just right for a nice movie that could really excite people because I don't think people like to go through like powerless having to swallow their grievances. They're paying their anguish when there's no need for them to have this grievance pain and anguish. I mean, look congress is is is ignoring three and a half billion dollars. Excuse me. This is an amazing thing. Congress is acknowledging three hundred fifty billion dollars of computerized billing fraud and healthcare industry who says so the government accountability office. A congressman deleting expert the applied mathematician, Malcolm Sparrow at Harvard University. He says that's the most conservative, but that's half the military budget three hundred fifty billion dollars down the drain, and congress doesn't even have a hearing on it. Because they're taking money from the health insurance companies from the drug companies, right various chains. And then they're not even looking at this one of the major preventable causes of death Johns. Hopkins University school of medicine study five thousand Americans die every week due to preventable problems in hospitals. Yup. Outrageous hospital induced infections malpractice, I mean, that's quarter million people in nine eleven quarter million people a year for crying out loud. How many advocacy groups have you started or help start since you've been doing this? Oh, well over a hundred. The student public interest groups like California Berg mass per Michigan. Burg we started that we started consumer help start consumer watchdog. We started center for auto safety pension rights, center, Public Citizen hair tests, you know, the expose the racket of the standardized tests that students have to take we we've started groups all over the country and most of them are thriving. And we would have start started thousands of them, George, but the supreme court and the six three decision ruled in favor of Pacific Gas and electric did didn't want to carry an insert at no cost to south, and it's monthly Bill inviting people to band together, a nonprofit consumer action groups, so they have a seat at the table, and that would have been one for Bank customers insurance customers.
