Publisher's Summary

America's number one citizen Ralph Nader's latest book tells us how unchecked corporate power has led to the wrecking ball that is the Trump presidency. Nader brings together the outrages of the Trump administration with the key flaws and failures of the previous administrations - both Republican and Democratic - that have led our nation to its current precipice.

It's all in the details, and Ralph Nader knows them all. Trump didn't come out of nowhere. Bush and Obama led the way. Writing as a Washington, D.C., activist and people's advocate for over 50 years - someone who has saved more lives and caused more impactful legislation to be enacted than almost any sitting president or legislator - Nader tells us how Trump's crimes and misdemeanors followed the path of no resistance of the Obama, Bush, and Clinton regimes, which ushered in the extreme rise of corporate power and the abandonment of the poor and middle classes.

nothing new

too many letters to former presidents. it should have been disclosed, or even have a title
"my letters to Bush & Obama"
Good ideas but nothing new.
wish he was the president today.

a call to arms

Those who are left, right and libertarian, but tired of corporate oligarchs running our gov't will be inspired by this book. The main stream media ignore him; the alt-right/lite media ignore him. But he's not going away, even after being an outspoken consumer advocate for 53 years.

Make America Great Again — For Real

Enjoyed the book and Naders views on our political situation, current and recent past. In my opinion, too much emphasis on the failings of Hillary and Obama. Also, Nader is smart, but he may not have ALL the answers.

Nader's ideas, but voice performance unlistenable

I will order the actual book. The voice performance is quite poor. Sounds like voicing from the 1950s or something. (If that makes sense.) Could not finish listening!

Your participation in power shouldn't be sellable.

Ralph Nader writes a very smooth flowing capitulation of where we are, and how to make corrections to get us back on track.
Cicero wrote, "Freedom is participation in power."
Democracy should be in every step of life.
Read this book to help make that possible.

bad economics

great ideas. except economic ideas unfortunately. learn MMT. stop pandering to the rich. taxes on the federal level are deleted, not hoarder for spending.
