Pacifica Reporter

Urevitch reports on Nader’s nomination. Nader argues that he is not a spoiler candidate, but that the system itself is spoiled, and says that democracy demands the building of a strong Green Party. Urevitch speaks with a number of delegates who support Nader’s candidacy, including Ronnie Dugger and Winona La Duke. Some concerns about Nader are also discussed, particularly his avoidance of issues of racism and his failure to disclose his tax return. Nader responds by saying race issues distract from the real issue, power, and that the right to privacy trumps traditional tax return disclosures by candidates.
