In an interview with We Are Change’s Luke Rudowski, five-time failed presidential candidate Ralph Nader called potential 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton a “menace” to the nation because of her “corporatist” and “militarist” views.

“Well, Hillary [Clinton] is a corporatist and a militarist,” he said. “Do we want another corporatist and militarist? She thinks Obama is too weak. He doesn’t kill enough people overseas. So she’s a menace to the United States of America.”
“What we need is people — regardless of whether they are libertarians or not — that pull back on the empire and make Wall Street subordinate to Main Street. People have got to start thinking, doing their homework, become informed voters and not coronate another corporatist and militarist.”
Asked about potential GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Nader said that the lawmaker is too shifty on many of his views.
“He’s like his father Ron Paul,” Nader said. “He is against militarism, against the bloated military budget, against empire, and against these foreign military unconstitutional adventures — but Rand Paul is changing by the month as he wants the White House. He is beginning to say, ‘Well, what if we give more aid to Israel? The militarism there. Why don’t we keep this part of the military budget that has jobs in Kentucky.’
“So he is beginning to change. You can see him in just one year — he’s not going to go on the floor and filibuster again, the way he did courageously,” he continued. “That’s what blind ambition does. That’s what political power does. So what he ought to do is go back to his father, sit on his knee and become more like Ron Paul.”
