Thomas Paine’s words ring loudly in the minds of many today, “These are the times that try men’s souls.”
The administration of ”hope” and “change” has proven to be the regime of socialist-leaning ideology. It truly amazes patriotic Americans that such a blatant disregard for our Constitution and founding principles is ignored by the mainstream press. The Obama administration’s arrogant dismissal of the wishes of the majority of Americans is maddening, but what is worse is the abandonment of common sense.
Who could have imagined just a few years ago that:
- the answer to crippling deficits would be a radical increase in spending?
- the answer to a deluge of illegal immigration would be to sue a state that is taking real action?
- the claim of success of the almost trillion dollars of stimulus spending would be the creation of 600,000 jobs at the cost of $700,000 per job?
- people who embrace tyrants like Mao and Chevez and openly support rationing of medical care would be appointed to senior positions in our government administration?
- the emergency action plan to address a major gulf oil disaster would be to wait 59 days before taking any action?
Where the hell is good old American common sense?
This website, its blogs and video Did You Know vlog were created to shine a spotlight on those policies and actions that this administration is taking that would cause our Founding Fathers to rally the believers of personal freedoms and inalienable rights to oust this anti-constitutional, Obama regime.
The name of our written blog, Paine-ful View, was inspired by Thomas Paine’s famous pamphlet, “Commonsense”, and suggests that if he or any of the other Founding Fathers were alive today, the state of our federal government would be an incredulous painful surprise.
Founded by Michael Breen and a handful of friends, who immediately rallied an unstoppable and daily expanding mass of passionate, common sense citizens from, literally, all across this great United States—from Manhattan, New York, to Berkley, California—CommonSenseWear has become a common sense movement. These common sense citizens—Democrats, Republicans, Independents and Libertarians alike—stand united in their commitment to bringing good old American COMMON SENSE and the principles of our Constitution and Founding Fathers back into government and its policies, at all levels— national, state and local!
As you read this blog, or view Did You Know video blog or enjoy our newly launched “Constitutional Cuisine” online cooking show, please keep in mind (and spread the word). Thomas Paine’s view of government (which was shared by the other Founding Fathers) was succinct:
“Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.”
Today we are staring eye-to-eye with an intolerable evil!
Please join and support CommonSenseWear in building a strong, patriotic community to proudly display and promote the need to restore common sense in our government, and to protect our constitutional rights established by our founding fathers more than 200 years ago when they risked it all to found this great nation!
COMMON SENSE WEAR : BELIEVE IT . SPEAK IT . WEAR IT!
