Cleaned up and reorganized January 27, 2001. Know of a link you would like to see here? Send us a note with the URL (and maybe a short description).

Green Party

Nader 2000 (We know the campaign is over, but the campaign highlights are still available here.)

Speaking of campaign highlights, the speech that Ralph Nader gave to the Economic Club of Detroit on October 10 is available from C-Span. Just enter "Nader" as the search term, and you will get a list of Nader's speeches, including this one, which you can view. The format is low-quality streaming video with a passably clear audio portion. I couldn't find a text version. If anybody is willing to transcribe the speech, please send me the text. Keep in mind he is talking to a room loaded with auto company executives when he tells them they should be sent to jail for corporate crimes. Ain't it cool?
