commonsense is not in any groups


Common Sense in Politics is exactly what it sounds like. We are not Democrats, we are not Republicans, we are not Libertarians, liberals or conservatives. We simply want our politicians to work together for solutions to problems in our country. Both Parties need to STOP fighting for their “side” and just use some common sense.

We accept everyone as friends; Black, White, Gay, Straight, Conservative, Liberal. We will call Baloney when we see Baloney no matter whose feelings get hurt. We will take some pot shots at politicians when we see hypocrisy. This page is a little bit serious and a little bit fun.

Liberals More Likely to Unfriend on Facebook?

Sep 26th 2012 at 1:34 PM

Recently I have decided to support a No Party Affiliation candidate who is running against a very popular incumbent in my town.  I knew that it would not be a popular decision but I also knew I had to stand up for my convictions.  I figured there would be some ruffled feathers but did not think I would lose friends over it.

Well so far three people have unfriended me from Facebook. I posted about that today on my Facebook page and received several comments.  One was from my good friend and conservative, Brett, with whom I often have spirited discussions.  He sent me statistics showing that liberals are more likely to unfriend someone than conservatives.

"Liberals are the most likely to have taken each of these steps to block, unfriend, or hide. In all, 28% of liberals have blocked, unfriended, or hidden someone on SNS because of one of these reasons, compared with 16% of conservatives and 14% of moderates."

I have to admit that I was surprised by that.  The three people who unfriended me were decidedly conservative, but that is only because I am going against their conservative candidate.  I usually considered the Republican Party to be the more apt to end friendships over politics.  However, this research seems to say that liberals are more likely to unfriend.  Regardless, I appreciate Brett showing me this, and now I cannot wait to beat him on the golf course just to get back at him.
