    Common sense doesn't exist. Even the most simple exercises in logical thinking come primarily from being being educated rather than innate understanding.

    Tapatalk doesn't display polls, so I'll just say than common sense does not exist. Everyone has a different idea of what everyone else should already know.

    Common sense healthcare reform is to simply require everyone to have a policy with minimum standards, allow buying a policy across state lines and offer a tax deduction for said insurance.

    No ACA, no single-payer, no exchanges, non of that.

    Common sense gun control is including an endorced CCW class to get or renew a driver's license; adopting national recopricity, national Castle Doctrin and national Constitutional Carry.

    So basicaly if your not violent, insane or a child, go buy, sell, own and carry whatever you want.

    No mag limits, no gun-free school zones, no banning types of guns, non of that.

    Judging by how many college grads we turn, it is rare. It is amazing how stupid one can be and still get a degree.

    Logic and common sense are not the same thing.

    Re: common sense

    Common sense is often a code-phrase in debate for "I've got nothing so I'll claim it ought to be universally accepted anyhow".
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
