WHY IT WORKS

Through an organization called The Common Interest, Idaho conservatives, moderates, and liberals brought common sense to state politics.

People Are Less Polarized

As everyday citizens we’re not nearly as divided left and right as most elected officials.  We can give needed political support to Congress’s practical problem solvers.

Wisdom of Founding Fathers

The Founders’ defense against runaway partisanship is a robust separation of powers.  Separation of powers creates an affirmative imperative to find and champion broadly supported solutions.  We can do this.

Problems of 2 Party System

An unprecedented partisan rift between the major political parties makes our efforts to move past partisanship more important than ever.

Guiding Principles

Understand why we do what we do.

As we take the four steps together, we are guided by three principles:

1. THE COMMONSENSE PRINCIPLE2. THE LOYALTY TO CONSCIENCE PRINCIPLE3. THE GOLDEN RULE OF SELF-GOVERNMENT

What We've Done

CommonSense Americans are already three-for-three in identifying solutions wise enough to attract support across our divisions and then championing them into law.
