The Ralph Nader Radio Hour

Hitler’s Model/The Shape of a New Economy

Ralph talks to historian James Whitman about how the Nazis in the thirties modeled a lot of their racial policies on our very own Jim Crow laws and what that means for us today; and political economist Gar Alperovitz gives us an encouraging progress report on how the New Economy Movement is transforming the system.

    Germany recovered from the Great Depression by following the American Model of the colonies. Germany created their own interest free money only used within the country. The money was spent into the economy and while US and other developed countries’ industrial manufacturing decreased by at least 20% Germany’s industrial manufacturing increased by 80%. That stimulation was not Keynseian which promotes economic growth through government stimulation with borrowed money which increases national debt. If the Nazis had not stimulated the economy to benefit the average German, they would never have been able to maintain power.

    Ralph Nader you have the blood on your hand of millions of people in the middle east, when you refused to concede the election to Al Gore in Florida in the the year 2000 while you got near 86 thousands votes in Florida most would have gone to Al Gore, while after all of the cheating and hanging chads and the counting block by the Supreme court, Bush was selected by 542 votes…..You should have known better as all of us knew about GW Bush from the bloody war criminal crowed of Neocons PNACERS led by Paul Wolfwitz, who advocated perpetual wars and regime change across the whole Middle East. . that brought him in office…

      Gore CONCEDED within hours after promising he would NEVER give up or concede before EVERY VOTE WAS COUNTED! ALBERT GORE WAS AND STILL IS PART OF THE ELITE RULING CLASS AND HE PERFORMED HIS CONTRACTUAL ROLE AS THE DESIGNATED LOSER.

      GORE THREW the election. Gore didn’t do everything within his power and scope to guarantee a free and fair election. Gore didn’t dig his heels in and fight for justice…He shrugged…Part of the rotten-to-the-core, CLINTON-CONTROLLED DEMS MACHINE.

      THE GORE FAMILY FORTUNE CAME FROM TOBACCO & CATTLE FARMING/PRODUCTION. NOT AS RICH AS THE BUSH FAMILY, BUT PRIVILEGED WELL INTO THE UPPER 0.1% CLASS.

      BRAINWASHED SHILLS WHO WOULD ADMONISH OR SLANDER MR. NADER ARE AS WORTHLESS AND DESTRUCTIVE AS THE ANTI-democratic IDIOTS WHO VOTED FOR TRUMP AND ACTUALLY BELIEVE HE WON A FREE AND FAIR ELECTION.
