In Pointless Unconstitutional Platitudes We Trust

Abby Zimet

Because there's nothing else it should be spending its taxpayer-funded time and energy on, the House will vote on whether to plaster every federal building with "In God We Trust," a phrase born of a McCarthy-era effort to combat all those godless commies. Some people think our national motto should be, "We the people," but that's so.....democratic. 

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. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.
