‘Common Sense’ Anniversary Reveals Threat to Freedom

“Some writers have so confounded society with government, as to leave little or no distinction between them,” began Thomas Paine in January 1776.

Common Sense spread like wildfire.

But many complain now about a danger to that 1776 spirit.

Not only does Mitt Romney believe his experience in society can guarantee good government. He also believes John Adams, who that July 4 signed the Declaration of Independence — inspired by Common Sense — wrote the Constitution.

But again, Romney can offer a proven guarantee of saying anything to get elected through flip-flopping.

What does your own common sense say?
