Ralph Nader, on The Register Citizen, writes an opinion piece titled, “Ralph Nader: Obama, crowding out America” on September 15, 2013. Nader attacks the amount of time being spent debating the country’s involvement with Syria instead of focusing on domestic issues. He goes into detail about appearance, important conferences, and staple events Obama is missing due to the conflict with Syria. Nader’s argument is that obama is ‘undervaluing’ issues that will better our country and its citizens.
“Our country’s misguided foreign policy has caused our president to spend enormous time and influence enlisting allies, members of Congress, and figuring out the many risks of another protracted unlawful war-quagmire in the Middle East. Imagine how much time our president could spend on our country’s many domestic problems.”

Nader’s latest book, “Told You So: The Big Book of Weekly Columns” is now on sale.
The column is the most natural literary form for a citizen’s advocate, and Ralph Nader may be its most robust and forceful practitioner. Told You So: The Big Book of Weekly Columns presents a panoramic portrait of the problems confronting our society and provides examples of the many actions an organized citizenry could and should take to create a more just and environmentally sustainable world. Drawing on decades of experience, Nader’s columns document the consequences of concentrated corporate power; threats to our food, water and air; the corrosive effect of commercialism on our children; the dismantling of worker rights; and the attacks on our civil rights and civil liberties. Nader also offers concrete suggestions to spark citizen action and achieve social change.
