So Much For Audacity

Abby Zimet

With the vote on health reform imminent, a lucid open letter
to wavering Democrats from Marjorie Margolies - who lost reelection on
an unpopular vote in a rabid political climate - urging them to vote
their conscience. Having to argue for such an elemental notion
on such an imperfect bill - is this the change we can believe in?

"There are times in all our careers when we must ask
ourselves why we're here...I urge you simply to cast the vote you can be proud of next week,
next year and for years to come."


FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism 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 us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
