fired by protesting Tea Partiers in Nevada and their zealous if
ill-informed leader Sarah Palin: While they cherish and quote and wave
signs duplicated their much-cherished and oft-quoted Constitution,

"Our vision for America is anchored in time-tested truths that the
government that governs least governs best, that the Constitution
provides the path to a more perfect union... In these volatile times
when we are a nation at war, now
more than ever is when we need a commander-in-chief, not a
constitutional law professor lecturing us from a lectern."

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
