More Choice.

In a world with unlimited choices, why should our politics be any different?

We are the Common Sense Party. We are fiscally responsible and socially inclusive.

We need 67,000 members by 2020 in order to bring Californians the choice they deserve.

WATCH: Our People on the Ground

Californians Deserve Better.

California inspires risk takers, visionaries, and entrepreneurs.

Our state used to take pride in our infrastructure, public education, environmental preservation, health, and safety. For decades, these investments enabled mobility up the economic and social ladder for all Californians and rapid growth for the State.

But an increasingly partisan environment has created bad public policy and blocks common sense solutions.

Partisanship & special interests hinder independence and real solutions

6.6 Million

California voters are so dissatisfied they left both major parties

California is effectively a one-party state stifling independence

The Problem

Political parties exacerbate extremism through zero-sum electoral and governing strategies and give special interests inappropriate influence.

The way our current system recruits and screens candidates, funds and runs campaigns, and governs post-election, cries out for reform and real competition.

The system isn’t broken ... it’s fixed!

The Solution

The Common Sense Party will provide an ongoing structure to support independent-minded candidates, revitalize competition in elections, and make officials responsive to their constituents, rather than party bosses and special interests.

Common Sense’s “open source” structure will level the playing field for qualified independent candidates, including independent-minded Democrats and Republicans.

We will foster independent candidates, build local chapters to provide grassroots support, and efficiently qualify good ballot initiatives.
