Searching for Common Sense

Updated: Sep 21, 2022

My Thoughts about Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness in the United States

If any of you don't know me, I should start with a little background about who I am, and why I write a blog for the Republican Club of South Collier County (RCSCC).

I am a citizen who believes the United States of America is the most free and best place to live in the world. I am a grateful resident of Florida since 2014. I am a blessed woman in a happy 36 year marriage to a smart, successful, and loving husband. I am a proud mother of three adult children that share my conservative values. And if you live on Isles of Capri, you may know me as the lady who Koda takes for a walk every morning…woof.

As for WHY write a blog? Fear. I feel that many parts of life have become so politicized. I feel it’s time to stop my silence in fear of WOKE, Cancel Culture, mob rule, retaliation that is so prevalent today. It’s time to speak for the ideological beliefs that are in the tenets of the Bill of Rights.

I started with the definition of Common Sense. We must use common sense to defend our values and unmask the organizations, government agencies, and elected representatives who are trying to destroy, not make a better America. We must be the visible conservative who believes the smaller the government, the larger the citizen.

So how do we become a champion of thoughts that reflect our conservative beliefs? By becoming a student of ideas. A good listener. A proponent for courageous people who expose the truth with facts, and common sense. A voice that persuades others to consider other viewpoints than their own. I ask that each day, try to listen to a podcast, watch a video, or read something that will enlighten you from a political and cultural perspective. I usually listen to podcasts while walking my dog. My husband reads. My daughter watches videos. Just take the time to learn something new, and then inspire someone else to do the same. If you take the time to do this, you will become empowered.

I am committed to use common sense to become a better citizen, because I will never understand an upside down society. This is a re-post from Dave Ramsey- 01/08/2021

A friend sent this to me earlier today......


“This morning, I realized that everything is about to change. No matter how I vote, no matter what I say, lives are never going to be the same. I have been confused by the hostility of family and friends. I look at people I have known all my life so hate-filled that they agree with opinions they would never express as their own. I think that I may well have entered the Twilight Zone.

You can't justify this insanity. We have become a nation that has lost its collective mind. We see other countries going Socialist and collapsing, but it seems like a great plan to us. Somehow it’s un-American for the census to count how many Americans are in America. People who say there is no such thing as gender are demanding a female President. Universities that advocate equality, discriminate against Asian-Americans in favor of African-Americans. Some people are held responsible for things that happened before they were born, and other people are not held responsible for what they are doing right now.

Criminals are caught-and-released to hurt more people, but stopping them is bad because it's a

violation of THEIR rights. People who have never owned slaves should pay slavery reparations to people who have never been slaves. After legislating gender, if a dude pretends to be a

woman, you are required to pretend with him.

I will end this blog by sharing an email message from The White House in response to my thank you for serving our country, and for the many good things he accomplished during his Presidency. It is worth reminding ourselves that The United Sates of America is our country, and it’s worth defending from those who wish to destroy it from the inside out, top down, bottom up.

Thank you for contacting the White House.

We are carefully reviewing your message.

President Donald J. Trump believes the strength of our country lies in the spirit of

the American people and their willingness to stay informed and get involved.

President Trump appreciates your taking the time to reach out.
