COMMON SENSE SAYS: We need to learn the lessons of Afghanistan and not deploy troops in a “war” that is unwinnable. In all likelihood, rather than learn the hard lessons, Republicans will continue to use troops as pawns in global political power. It’s time to stop that.

COMMON SENSE SAYS: I could easily name a dozen Republicans who need to be replaced in Congress and state Governors. Texas and Florida have Governors who are brazen in their radical idealogy, and of course, the media is reporting that both are sinking in the polls. However, if we want
COMMON SENSE: Howard Dean just said it ALL: “I’m actually just shocked by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. I never thought I’d say this, but I think he may be even more of a lunatic than Trump ever was.”. That’s disturbing on so many levels. Florida is battling a record COVID
COMMON SENSE: For Fiscal Year 2021 (FY2021), the Department of Defense’s discretionary budget authority is approximately $705.39 billion.

COMMON SENSE SAYS: President Biden will take the heat for the terrorist attack, but to call for his impeachment when Trump used the Constitution as a doormat is pure hypocrisy. Trump is responsible for over 400,000 deaths from COVID, not to mention a high number of military fatalities.
COMMON SENSE: Journalism 101 says that if one person says it is raining and another says it’s dry, it’s not your job to quote them both. It’s your job to look outside and report the facts. Unfortunately, the media on both the right and the left are taking huge liberties
COMMON SENSE SAYS: Voters tend to have short memories. The election for Governor of Florida is more than a year away, and despite DeSantis’s incompetence, his poll number varies wildly. I don’t believe, for a second, that he is definitely going to lose the election, but he is vulnerable.
COMMON SENSE SAYS: President Trump’s unwillingness to contain the COVID-19 pandemic constitutes one of the most catastrophic failures of leadership in our nation’s history. Trump’s refusal to develop a national strategy to defeat – let alone contain – the virus has resulted in thousands of avoidable deaths and the most severe economic crisis in a
