In an innovative rebranding move oddly reminiscent of Blackwater becoming Xe, the GOP, formerly known as the party of 'no,' is launching the National Council for a New America. Promising "a wide open policy debate," the bold new outreach effort will feature bold new faces like John McCain, Jeb Bush and George Bush.

"We do this not just to offer an alternative point of view or to
be disagreeable," the announcement letter reads. "Instead, we want to ask the American people what their
hopes and dreams are."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Won't Exist.
