Right On the Issues, Or Out the Door


Following through on their vow to hold Democrats accountable, North
Carolina labor and progressive groups are starting a third party, North
Carolina First, to fight Democrats who opposed health care
reform. Led by the powerful SEIU, they hope to field candidates in
upcoming elections.

 "Does it really matter if you put a Democratic label or a
Republican label on them when they go up there and support big companies
and big insurance?" - Chuck Stone, chairman of North Carolina First.

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
