#Cyberpeacefare #CSPAN Book TV #Ralph Nader Book Interview

Book: "Return to Sender Unanswered" ;Ralph Nader

SOME POINTS MADE:

1.His letters to Congress and the White House mostly go unanswered.

 2. Powerful Interests/Lobbyists have access.

 3. Politicians "left-right" know US Constitution give the power to "We The   People" Voters too fragmented-demoralized - don't Realize that:

   "Just 1% of Voters Can Make a Big Difference"

4. Politicians get the message - fear the voters - want to stay in power if 

    1% or more make their voices heard.

5. Voters need exercise their individual civic power/responsibility - "We The People" can make a difference.

(I'm reminded of Margaret Mead Quote" "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change the world.  Indeed it is the only thing that ever has."
