Tea Party, America Thanks You, Sort Of

Abby Zimet

What with our wildly successful debt ceiling deal, S&P downgrade and all, it's clear the Tea Party deserves more credit than it's getting. Forthwith, a thank you - for our "great recession," for "showing the world that compromise is just dirty Euro-slang for 'surrender,'" for "shrinking government down to the size of your world view."

"Never doubt that a small group of reactionary, xenophobic, corporately-manipulated citizens can change the world."

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.
