What is CS Politics?

Common Sense Politics Mission Statement

According to Oxford Dictionaries, politics is “the activities associated with the governance of a country or other area, especially the debate or conflict among individuals or parties having or hoping to achieve power.” Common Sense Politics is an independent, center to right, non-conformist political site that seeks to provide resources and interpretation for the political arena. We seek to make the politically obscure understandable.

CS is not a news site and we do not get involved in head fakes, the manipulative headlines – and possibly misleading information – that seek to shape viewer opinions over the short-term. We attempt to provide consistent interpretation of the real issues. CS provides at least one article or other resource per day, on a weekly basis, to this end.


Common Sense Politics Methodology

Article and link choices are designed to help you interpret the center to right space. Links are updated every week between Friday and Sunday evening, and periodically throughout the week as deemed necessary. Post-Sunday-evening-link entries are carried over for at least a few days into the next week. All links are provided within a framework of major sections and themes.

For our specific interpretive view on various themes and issues, see the section Common Sense Interpretation.

Sometimes we provide a synopsis or commentary on links, sometimes we do not. When we do, they are labeled Synopsis, or Common Sense Commentary.
