Say What?

Abby Zimet

The crazies, it seems, are everywhere. Obama's health care speech here
in Portland yesterday brought out, not just roaring helicopters from the
placid sky, but a rowdy, bell-ringing, larger-than-some-of-us-expected
crowd of Don't Tread on Me-ers, complete with "Marxist In Chief" and
"Obama Lies Granny Dies" signs. Vacationland never felt so far from its
peaceable roots. Now comes news
that more wingnuts are sending threatening letters to over 30
governors, including Maine's, demanding they leave office or be "removed
forcefully." The scariest thing about the so-called Guardians of the
Free Republics isn't their fervor or "ideas" or dreadful spelling - it's that we
truly have no idea what they're talking about. 

"If you are tired of being subjected to a corporation posing as a
legitimate government that would arrest you for refusing to pray to
corporate courts or give up your land or pay taxes to the Rothschilds or
exhibit a state-issued confession of subject-class citizenship, then we
invite you to (join us)... This is YOUR chance to finally end the
economic seige, the foreclosures, tax and criminal cases which lack an
injured party, the assaults and terror under color of law by lawfully,
expediently and peacefully restoring the de jure (original) institutions
of the fifty state republics and the United States of America."

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
