Ralph Nader recently spoke with Reason.com about issues facing American politics and how individuals from both the left and the right are coming together on these issues. The interview is an hour long, but it’s worth watching in its entirety or at least listening to. Far too much involving the American political landscape is deluded to either the left or the right. In reality, many progressives and libertarians alike agree on a lot of issues – such as their opposition to the military-industrial complex and the failed “War On Drugs”. (Which is really just a war on people and their personal consumption.)
“The total support of the military-industrial complex and empire by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is staggering. The brass of these two parties is they control the election machinery so they keep you off the ballot, harass you, file a lawsuit, delay you, exhaust you” said Nader.
Nader’s latest book is Unstoppable: The Emerging Left-Right Alliance to Dismantle the Corporate State.
The longtime consumer activist, recidivist presidential candidate, and several-time host of Saturday Night Live talks with Nick Gillespie about what he sees as a new libertarian-progressive attack on crony capitalism, whether GM cars were ever any good, and why the Democrats still wrongly insist that he cost Al Gore the 2000 presidential election.[More.](http://reason.com/reasontv/2014/06/11/ralph-nader)
