Say what you want about Nader, but the guy isn’t bought and sold. And for someone who has made his life in Washington DC that is saying one heck of a lot.

Government isn’t all bad. A very small and generally limited one can make some sense. I will even go so far as to say that a very modest taxpayer supported safety net for the truly indigent is OK if for whatever reason a private net does not exist.

It is never something to be celebrated, but we unfortunately have celebrated government for far too long in this country.
