Vote with Common Sense- 10-10-22 1

In 1776, Thomas Paine published a 47 page pamphlet called Common Sense. His writing inspired many to subscribe to the doctrine that the American Colonies should be independent from Great Brittan.

Back then, people understood the meaning of common sense: Sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts. In 1776, our founding fathers thought it was common sense that the words in our Declaration of Independence, “Laws of Nature” and “Natures God” meant that there is moral conduct implanted in our hearts and that the will of God is revealed through our conscience.

Has our nation lost its common sense? Many have certainly lost their moral conduct and act as if they had no God given conscience. Why would we vote for people whose ideology defy the laws of nature and natures God?

To me, it’s common sense to vote for candidates who believe in the American dream of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness; candidates who don’t need a biologist to tell the difference between a man and a woman; candidates who believe it’s a parent’s responsibility to raise their children and have the ability to choose for them the best possible education; candidates who believe in voter integrity, secure borders and fiscal responsibility and candidates who will protect our God given rights that are enshrined in our Constitution.

The election is here, Ballots are being mailed out this Wednesday. By the weekend, many of us will be voting. Tomorrow, October 11th is the last day you can register to vote. If you haven’t registered, or have moved, here’s a Link to Register online. I’m voting in person on Tuesday November 8, 2022.

4Tucson does not endorse candidates or recommend ballot measures. I recommend you investigate candidates and ballot measures yourself and vote.

There are two like minded organizations that I always check out to see where they stand. For candidates that support life, marriage, family, school choice and religious freedom, the Center for Arizona Policy Action has a score card and a list of endorsements. The Goldwater Institute has also done a great job investigating some of the ballot measures.

Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a complement to please an individual- or at least that he ought not do so; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country”.
