If you didn't want to watch all of last night's GOP debate - and who could blame you? - a few minutes of Michele Bachmann will capture the clueless wackadoodle incoherence of the event. Bachmann said we shouldn't have any taxes except of course we need some for the government, even though bad guys run it.

"Barack Obama seems to think that when we earn money, it belongs to him and we're lucky just to keep a little bit of it. I don't think that at all. I think that when people make money, it's their money."

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.

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
