White Guys Saving America

by

If you're as desperate as the rest of us for even a hint of cheer in the day's news, here's a picture of the Tea Party's Save America Convention in Florida this weekend. It had so much to offer - Tom Tancredo! John Birch Society and Personhood Florida sponsoring! A battleplan for each attendee! - but only drew about 300 slumped saviors. The day's basketball game drew 18,000. We're doomed, or there's hope, depending on your perspective.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
