American political activist Ralph Nader turns 79 today. Nader has run for POTUS 5ive times and of course never won but he has made more contributions to America and the lives of everyday Americans than a majority of our presidents have. Nader came to prominence 48 years ago with the book “Unsafe At Any Speed” about the safety record of the automobile industry and most famously the Chevy Corvair. Nader has been active over the years. His greatest accomplishments were probably in the first half of his career but he never goes away for long and his list of accomplishments are staggering. Attached is an article going over all of those accomplishments.
I would highly recommend the 2006 documentary on Nader- “An Unreasonable Man” excellent stuff. Ralph Nader one of the great American’s of the 20th Century.
