A Tilted Landscape

As election season looms, with its attendant sound and fury, Democrats are trying to fight an unlevel playing field - and the increased abuses born of Citizens' United - with legislation aimed at making Super PACs (more) transparent. But the numbers discourage. New surveys show a majority of Americans believe we need new campaign laws, and both political donation and media figures - Republicans essentially own the news cycle - back them up. So do (telling) charts.

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.
