Ralph Nader Interviews Pat Buchanan, Circa 2011

This is an hour long discussion by two people I used to think couldn't be more far apart ideologically.

It's particularly interesting to hear how Buchanan's cutting edge issues almost perfectly reflect Donald Trump's, years before Trump ever entered politics. I don't believe this indicates any conspiracy; just the fact that what many consider Trump's personal idiosyncrasies were actually widely held views by conservatives long before anyone gave a hoot about our current President.
