Political activist and author Ralph Nader answers the question, "What if?" What if a cadre of superrich individuals tried to become a driving force in America to organize and institutionalize the interests of the citizens of this troubled nation? What if some of America's most powerful individuals decided it was time to fix our government and return the power to the people? What if they focused their power on unionizing Wal-Mart? What if a national political party were formed with the sole purpose of advancing clean elections? What if these seventeen superrich individuals decided to galvanize a movement for alternative forms of energy that will effectively clean up the environment? What if together they took on corporate goliaths and Congress to provide the necessities of life and advance the solutions so long left on the shelf by an avaricious oligarchy? What could happen?--From publisher description.

The premise of this book is so bizarre it reminds one of just how dumbed down America and Americans have become (especially Ralph Nader, who is simply beyond words in his stupid gullibility at this juncture in time!?!?!?)! The most crucial question of today is: who owns America? Who owns Lockheed Martin (last known majority holder is the Rockefeller family, did they ever sell it off, or are the still the majority owner)? Who owns Northrop Grumman (that would be the Bush family and James Baker)? Who owns Raytheon? JPMorgan Chase? GE? AT&T? A bizarre book signaling the end of Ralph's sanity!

I'm not a big fan of fantasy and wishful thinking
