Today's signing of the terrifically vague Mt. Vernon
Statement brought together a bunch of old right-wingers who love Ed
Meese and miss Ronald Reagan and think change is scary so they hope to
save us from it. Sad, silly tripe.

"Some insist that America must change, cast off the old and put on the
new. But where would this lead - forward or backward, up or down? Isn't
this idea of change an empty promise or even a dangerous deception?"

THE LAST FIREWALL AGAINST THE LIES

Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
