I have a clinical background and it’s a term commonly used. It’s well known and proven that stress alters a person’s perceptions and decision making. I could load you down with case studies and examples that would take you now until eternity to read. Common sense also unfortunately goes out the window. Common sense is also another interesting concept. What is common sense for one person is not common sense for another. Much of what we consider common sense or “gut feeling” is actually based on personal experience. That is why it can differ from one person to the next. I can’t tell you how often this comes up in counseling sessions. Truth is a concept that is driven by personal perceptions based on often partial information and personal experiences. More times than not I’ve seen couples nearly self-destruct because of what the other perceived to be true. Often they have jumped to conclusions based on little evidence. In the areas they lack evidence they fill with personal feelings based on past experiences. I’m starting to ramble now. To put it simply what we as individuals perceive to be truth is not always true for some one else. In other words keep an open mind. Nearly everyone I’ve ever met has never thought of themselves as a bad person. Few ever strive to be evil. All the candidates currently engaged in the race are doing I’m sure for reasons they believe to be righteous. All four candidates have a track record of commitment and service to this community. The question is do they have the ability and knowledge.

Guest wrote:EP is strong in community involvement and weak in experience and education, so they decided to focus on this. Community involvement is very important with a lot of people. In combination with hyping his community involvement they also demonize the experienced candidates by saying that experience has corrupted them and has caused them to loose focus on what's important. It's a sound stratagy and has a proven track record of getting candidates into office. Some of the most recent and famous are Obama and Rubio. Their performance once getting into office however is questionable. It really depends on who they decide to surround themselves with as the decision makers.
