A striking fact about the Nader campaign is that the United States is the only non-dictatorship in the world without some plausible left-wing party. The Democratic Party has always passed for this left-wing party. Now that the Democratic party has moved firmly to the right, there is absolutely no progressive party influence on U. S. politics, except for Nader. What would be downright weird in any other country is just considered normal politics in the United States. Why is this?
