Tea Party Leaves For Space. We Wish It Godspeed.

Given the wackiness quotient among leading GOP contenders, can anything surprise at this point? Ok, try this: An offshoot of the South Florida Tea Party wants to break our socialist government's hold over the universe with the Tea Party In Space, which will save us all by bringing their core values of American exceptionalism and free markets to the space program, which is clearly our most pressing problem right now.

"Our goal is nothing less than the expansion of American civilization into the solar system." 

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.
