This is probably less a political prescription on Nader's part than an
employment of the age-old literary device.  Solve the problem of funding
frees your imagination to show what actually could be done right now.  You
not only find it common among the classical utopian writers, but Kurt
Vonnegut used it very effectively with his Eliott Rosewater character.

Of course, a political figure doing this is likely to cause some confusion,
but I think it's usually limited by how many people there are out there
looking for something with which to confuse themselves...
