    IMO, an example of common sense: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.

    Sorry, that’s an example of homily.

    Common sense is a pretty nebulous term. What is common to you may be alien to me.
    For me, common sense in a political light is less of an ideology than a hope that all government processes work collaboratively rather than counterproductively.

    Perhaps the poll should have asked “how are you registered to vote? options: Republican, Democrat, Independent.

    Nooooooo.

    I’m registered to vote for the party whose primary I most consistently want to influence.

    Doesn’t mean that’s the party I’m necessarily voting for in the general election. ;-)

    Perhaps this is just a dueling of massive, vague ideas, but I prefer critical thought and research to “horse sense”. Common sense tells me that the world is flat and that vaccines containing live viruses can make me sick. It takes highly specialized science that not all people are able to execute to disprove those things.

    Agreed, the “sense” of “commoners” is often lacking.

    also, can I just say right now that I would really like to see this thread NOT become a big hairy argument on who is right and who is wrong?
    That might screw up the poll by biasing. Please let people state their opinions freely without trying to shoot them down even if you hate what they say.

    How many posts back did your idea end?

    Most likely before he finished typing his post.

    Everyone supports common sense. Few people agree on what it is. I cringe when I hear someone say they support a “common sense” solution to an issue. If there was a common sense obvious solution, it wouldn’t be a problem in the first place.

    That’s just common sense.

    That is to say, I am a socialist who is pro-life in all its meanings.

    Pro-life in all its meanings… except for my enemies who must die.

    Not really knocking you, but it struck me as funny.

    Until detesting common sense came along, this was one of the most enlightening threads for me to date. I’ve learned a lot about where people are coming from and how just simple nuances in ideology can create hateful word wars. It’s fascinating. So kudos to everyone except THAT person who ruined it.

    You may want to think about adding a ‘none of the above’ or ‘don’t know/doesn’t apply’ type option if you want to get more accurate data.

    I figure if people don’t care, then they’re not voting at all in this poll. ;) Problem solved!
