Common Sense and Hardcore History are both great!
As the title indicates, I too also listen to both of Dan Carlins shows, and have done so for many years now, and think they are both wonderful. I have been impressed for many years now by the quality of shows Dan publishes, and have come to trust Dans insights within his shows, much like the 21st century Walter Cronkite. I absolutely recommend both shows to you!

My favorite
Actually I love both Hardcore History and Common Sense. Dan Carlin is the history teacher I wish Id had growing up. But thank goodness I found his podcasts because Im amazed at what Im learning and how much I didnt know! Hes definitely made an impact on my thinking and I wish everyone who loves to send emails that support their political viewpoint would listen to Dan Carlin. Most of them, including me until recently, dont have a clue.

Sense...we need more of this!
Dan ROCKS! Whether it is Hard Corp History or this insightful and researched Common Sense it should be mandatory listening for all voters. Voters should be strapped into sturdy chairs and forced to consider the ideas and topics Dan goes over...and only then, after receiving Dans wisdom and knowledge, should the would be voter be allowed to punch a chad.

A Bitter Pill
Providing insightful and earnest political commentary at a time when our country needs it more than ever, Common Sense is string bad news delivered with a wonderful dry sense of humor and a deep concern for the issues. This show isnt about extolling one party over the other, its about getting to the root of the problems crippling the country and how to fix them. Dan has brought together listeners from the left and the right and around the globe, but this isnt a bunch of non-committal centrists agreeing with each other either. Dan and his listeners disagree on many things, but we can agree that the country is headed in a frightening direction. The podcast is great, the community is great. Give Common Sense with Dan Carlin a try and you wont feel uplifted and happy, but youll become more mentally flexible, more informed about the problems and hopefully, youll be more motivated to get up and do something about them.

Critical Thinking & Entertainment
Easily the most thought-provoking show Ive had the pleasure of listening to. Non-partisan editorial, grounded in fact and historical examples, Dan captures the frustration of Americans with regard to politics and continues by trying to find solutions. Action-oriented, both intellectually and vocally. The show is a must-listen for both conservative and liberal-minded folks looking for another option than the rank-and-file pundits who merely fan the flames of fear and hatred.

War with Iran
Can We Avoid A War With Iran? Iran has a history of cyclical seesaw revolutions that have advanced and retreated from social progress. One need but consider the Iranian Constitutional Revolution between 1905 and 1911 to realize that Iran has been and can again be a country that upholds and advances human rights. Iran has a very young population that has a surprising amount of good will and affinity for Americans and American culture despite the hardships it has endured due to the policies of the US government. Over the course of the past 150 years Iran has had to confront and repel repeated attempts by Russia, Britain, United States, Egypt, Israel, and Iraq to dominate its? internal and external affairs. In 1953 the CIA covertly overthrew the legitimate government of Iran. Then after years of political and economic exploitation the revolutionary forces within and without the country overthrow the Shah in 1979. And the indignant cries by corporate interests in the country became a frenzy when the US Embassy was seized. Never one to lose an opportunity to capitalize on political weakness Ronald Regan saw the hostages freed on the day of his inauguration as president, in exchange he shipped spare parts to the Iranian Air Force to refurbish their American built military aircraft. Then in 1980 Iraq invaded Iran over a ?border dispute?. When it became apparent that Iran had successfully repelled the initial invasion, the United States responded by suppling Iraq with intelligence and weaponry. The US supported the Iraqi military under the rubric, ?the enemy of my enemy is my friend? and thereby prolonged the border war until it became an eight year long bloodbath. It is estimated that somewhere between 1 & 2 million people lost their lives in that conflict. The war fervor that was whipped up over the threat of weapons of mass destruction prior to the invasion of Iraq by the US and its? allies highlighted the devastating effect the use of chemical weapons had had on the Kurds. But very little if any mention was made about the use WMD?s by Saddam Hussein against the Iranians. And there was virtually no discussion as to how Iraq developed a capability to manufacture WMD?s in the first place. Only in hindsight was it uncovered that the Iraqi ability to develop such ?evil? weapons was made possible by the United States. In 1994 it was revealed that the U.S. Department of Commerce had authorized at least 70 shipments of pathogenic/toxigenic materials to Iraq during the Iraq-Iranian War. And when Iran protested at the time against the Iraqi use of chemical weapons to the United Nations, the US representatives were instructed to take no action and/or voice no opinion. Now the drums of war are beating once again, this time it?s ?the threat of a nuclear capable Iran.? For months proposals have been made to eliminate the perceived threat of a nuclear capable Iran. Now the media has temporarily turned its? attention toward the November elections, and a time out has been afforded from the propaganda machine. Some have begun asking a number of critical questions. ?Is this perceived threat being blown out of proportion by the climate of fear that overshadows much of our public discourse since 9/11?? What evidence does the politically driven media have to support its? claim that Iran wants to have a nuclear capability for a ?first strike option?? How likely is it that a nuclear capable Iran would ?proliferate? nuclear weapons by supplying terrorists with a nuclear devise. In light of the pre-invasion propaganda used in the cases of Afghanistan and Iraq who?s to say this is not another straw man argument to justify the invasion of a sovereign country? Is Iran really consumed by a fundamentalist desire to destroy Israel and the Great Satan, i.e. the United States, no matter what the cost as has been proposed by a popular fiction writer? Or Is there another viable and perhaps justifiable set of reasons why Iran would feel compelled to develop a nuclear weapons capability? For instance, consider one of the unanswered questions about Saddam Hussein?s non-existent nuclear and/or chemical weapons capability. Why didn?t he state beforehand that he didn?t have any WMD?s, allow UN inspectors back into the country to verify his claim, and avoid an invasion? The full story may never be known, but one thing seems apparent, i.e. as long as other countries believed he had WMD?s, for a time that threat served as a deterrent to outside aggression. It?s striking to listen to ordinary Iranians as they express approval for their government?s effort to develop a nuclear weapon. They see it in a similar way to what Americans saw when faced with a perceived Communist threat, i.e. as a deterrent against outside aggression. Given the external threats Iran has had to face through much of its? past and recent history is it unreasonable for it feel the need to have a nuclear capability to deter outside aggression? Are there other countries that pose a clear and present danger to Iran?s sovereignty? Given that the United States subverted its? government in 1953 and has continuously attempted to subvert its? present government since 1979, is it ?reasonable? to want a nuclear capability to deter further aggression from the United States? Having had to repel an invasion by Iraq and endure eight years of war, does Iran have a ?reasonable? basis for demanding a significant role in the political reconstitution of Iraq? With the reemergence of Russia onto the world stage, does Iran have ?reasonable? cause to fear Russian aggression in pursuit of its? ancient desire for a warm water port and dominion over its? oil reserves? With a nuclear capable Pakistan on its border does Iran have a ?reasonable? cause for wanting a means of deter a potential nuclear threat? Does Iran have a ?reasonable? security concern over theTalaban drug trade crossing it?s border from Afghanistan? In light of Israel?s finger pointing and previous first strike incursions into other countries does Iran have ?reasonable? cause to fear military action from Israel? When one considers the prevailing state security issues facing Iran, from an Iranian point of view, it?s a wonder the country isn?t more paranoid then its? media portrait would suggest. Outside of insisting that Iran give up its? effort to develop a nuclear weapons capability or face serious consequences are there other diplomatic options available to the concerned parties that have not been explored? For example: 1. As a good faith gesturte, can the US Government take responsibility for its? past subversive behavior and apologize to the people of Iran, if not to the Iranian Government, for the harm caused by its? policies? 2. Does the US Government have the foresight to open discussions that could lead to a negotiated non-aggression or mutual defense treaty with Iran - without a poison pill precondition? And thereby address many ofIran?s security needs in a meaningful way. 3. Is it unreasonable to call upon Israel to help diffuse the crisis by signing a nonproliferation treaty and divest itself of nuclear weapons? Thereby moving the Middle East closer to a nuclear free zone. From a military point of view can the United States risk a intervention with Iran that could develop into a war with the Muslim world? Besides, if people like Chris Martenson are even half-way correct, the United States simply cannot afford the financial burden it would incur by taking military action against Iran. We, the People, have a closing window of opportunity to bring some common sense into the discussion of Iran. My hope is that you will use your program as a forum for discussing our relationship with Iran before the propaganda machine frames the issue in such a way that overwhelms common sense as it did with Afghanistan and Iraq.

Prosecute False Advertising
Dan, your talk on False Advertising today was right on! And to follow it up with a rant on "What can we do about it," was positively ingenious. But I'm left with a real question... "What CAN we do about it?" I cannot find it in myself to vote for a republican, although our newest rep from Hawaii, Charles Djou, is particularly honest and ready to listen and discuss issues, so how can I counter Barrack Obama's false advertising? I do hope you will follow up with this topic in your next installment!

Common sense - the best thing we can rely on
I have recently found this podcast having listened for another Dans wonderful show "Hardcore History". It is no wonder that it is from a person who is aware of the past you can get a good sense of the present and the future awaiting for us. I have listened through the backlog of "Common Sense", which just confirmed that. No matter what your political views are, you will find many truths here. Listen to this show armed with your common sense and see what are the real problems our society faces and what can we do about them. After this shot of common sense you will be able even to survive the exposure to mainstream media without adverse effects on your mental health.

Great political analysis
First off I listen to a lot of podcasts and Dan Carlin is my favorite. This podcast is good for anyone with a brain. Avoids the stupid issues covered on TV and focuses in on the real issues. If you are a republican or a democrat you will probably like some of what Dan says and disagree with other things he says. You are most likely to enjoy this podcast if you do not identify with either party, although I think anyone who thinks for themselves will like this podcast.

Worth Staying With
Depite its puerile packaging and the sometimes abrasive tone of Mr Carlins audio persona, this is a real thinkers podcast. Mr Carlin is very good at digging into the subtext of current events, often using historical perspectives. He can weigh the value of arguments on any side of a political debate, without resorting to taunts or logical fallacies which have become commonplaces of our current political discourse. Not to be missed.

The best poltical commentary available today
This show presents very logical, consistent, well-structured arguments for dealing with current events and issues. Dans intelligent and logical break-down of the issues has persuaded me to change my mind on some things I used to feel very strongly about in the other direction, and its usually difficult to get me to change my mind. I would encourage everyone to listen to this podcast, whether youve followed always politics or were never interested. It will get you thinking and motivated to reshape this countrys direction. I believe our country is headed in the wrong direction and we need more focus on long-term solutions through common sense, rather than short-term gains for special interests that exacerbate problems later. This show should be required listening for every elected representative, public servant or lobbyist. The logic presented is so clear and obvious, that it just angers me every time I listen that more of our decision-makers seem devoid of the intelligence, foresight courage to make the right decisions.

...for Dan Carlin. He is wonderful! Ive read many of the reviews, and some Ive agreed with, while some Ive naturally disagreed with. The general consensus I see is that everybody likes Dan. Ive got news: he is the greatest political commentator Ive ever encountered. Let me explain. Im a teenager living in Indiana. Ive always thought that politics were slightly interesting, but it wasnt till this past election and my history class this year that I really started paying attention. The problem was that with all the dizzying political views, the jabs from side to side, the shouts, the condescension, and nose-turning, I couldnt pay attention. I couldnt discern what was really going on. And I feel that many of my friends at school feel the same way. Its like walking into a skirmish with swords and bows and arrows! Not with Dan. He pushes everything aside. He sits down and forces you to forget partisan issues. He really makes everything lucid. While I dont always agree with everything he says, I do believe that he is right about one issue: Americas political divide is being pushed farther and farther apart. Its a silent civil war. We, as Americans, if we want to see our country continue in any form, need to sit down with each other. It doesnt have to be quietly. It can be raucous, filled with varying viewpoints, but we need to forget the thing that is tearing us apart: blind loyalty and a blocked intelligence caused by the parties. Dan is really great. No matter what your political preference is, you need to listen to him, because hes smart. Hes got a real, analyzed viewpoint of the system and the present status of things. YOU ROCK, DAN!

A worthwhile listen
Dan carlin does a great job as a political commentator. The shows are often layers and require a full listening for full appreciation. I suggest listening to at least two if you do t like the first one. I often find myself disagreeing with statements made untill about midway through the show but soon find the wisdom to his logic thereafter. Dan Carlin holds to task all facets of our political systems with thoughtful consideration to the situation he speaks of. Truely non-partisan Dan carlin holds fastly to the virtues of true journalism in his commentaries and asks some very tough questions about political society in America. I can not recommend this show more highly.

This guy , Dan, is great. He enters the room of politics, not on a donkey or an elephant, but on his own two feet. He does the research, makes his case and presents it in an enthusiastic but logical manner. While he does not post a cast weekly or at times, monthly, the content makes up for it. If you want "fast food" commentary listen to the radio, if you want a good a " well prepared meal" listen to Common Sense with Dan Carlin. I need to say that this being such a glowing review, I am not Dans mother nor Bens . Thanks for the podcast. I owe Ben a dollar for all his work. Paul

Im a guy who used to absolutely hate and distrust all things political. Finally, I forced myself to start tuning in during the recent elections. During this time, it became my quest to find a medium that was as unbiased, bipartisan and hopefully interesting as possible. Dan Carlin was the solution to my problem. His podcasts are provocative, energetic and passionate. His style is true to the title, common sense and whether you agree or disagree with his view you are guaranteed to have your view challenged.

Clear Non-partisan Analysis
Dan (and Ben) clearly provide a balanced view of both (or all) sides of the podcasts topic. Balanced, but not impartial. When one view is much more likely to prove accurate, in historical perspective, Dan will make that clear. Some sources present only one side. Others present both, and try to pretend theyre equal, and equally likely to work. Only Dan gives the full picture, then points us in the direction it shows.

Thought-Provoking and Entertaining
Unlike so many commentators, Dan Carlin is not easily classified, yet there is an underlying consistency in the views he expresses. Dan is not into the name-calling that so often passes for commentary. Instead, he builds his case in a logical fashion. Even when I disagree with his position, I appreciate his though-process, and he forces me to examine my own views.

Great show. Factually based opinion and commentary. The world needs more straight forward conversation like this. Like or dislike the view, Dan isnt some talking head. He has informed opinions and his grasp of historical points gives a good "this is how we got in this particular mess" that most other news sources seem to be oblivious to. Keep up the good work Dan.

Thinking is a Required
You know what I hate most about Dan Carlin's show, is how much I end up agreeing with him. Great stuff. I don't agree with all of your stuff (as a Canadian, public health care works fine...thank you very much), but I really appreciate the non-partisan approach. I use to say the world only gets to see the Jerry Springer version of America -- the images get blurred with all channels are the same. With Dan, the picture becomes much more clearer. What's with all this right wing / left wing divide? A good idea is a good idea, no matter who says it. Period. Thanks Dan...

A Refreshing Surprise
Im a long time libertarian activist, but am no longer a member of the party since it has been taken over by Republicans who didnt like Bush. Dans Views are well-reasoned, intelligent, articulate, and libertarian in nature. I know he is rabidly non-partisan, but philosophically hes very libertarian. Ive only recently come across this podcast, and Im happy I did. I started off with episode 130 and have almost caught up now. This is a lot better than any radio show Ive heard. Unlike Dan, I dont believe the American government can be returned to our Constitutional Republic without bloodshed. Im sad about this, but I just dont see it happening otherwise. America will likely be destroyed from within by our own debt load. If America doesnt destroy itself, revolution is the only answer.

Whether you agree or disagree with Dan Carlin, he consistently brings up good points to think about. While his political views arent exactly the same as mine, its a breath of fresh air to hear talk "radio" that isnt constantly preaching the party line. Its good to hear someone who can call out both sides of the political spectrum. Dan calls them like he sees them which you have to respect even if you disagree.

I have no clue how Common Sense is only at #6... I cant say that your solutions are always realistic, but its downright strange how much my father and I agree with the underlying ideals. At the risk of sounding like some kind of separatist, Im worried that the only thing capable of shaking American culture hard enough to bring about a fundamental change is a revolution. And not neccesarily an armed one... . Perhaps an energy revolution in which gas prices rise to $12 a gallon....or a financial revolution where the Dow goes to 0 and we rebuild the financial markets in this country with a freshly poured foundation. Any flavor will do. Which ever it is though, its going to have to be MAJOR, and its gonna have to hit us hard in the wallet cuz thats the one thing that gets everyones attention. Anyways, Ive got at least two family members to check out the show so far.... workin on more. Thanks Dan/Ben!

I love this show... it helps fill the massive void in the traditional media. Just like the intro says: Dan Carlin is not the usual partisan voices that youre used to hearing. The Hardcore History show he does is also excellent.

Dan consistently delivers well planned and articulate show which cause you to question the political norm. The only complaint I have heard, and Dan addresses himself in, "Mushrooms and Onions" is his voice. Trust me, once you get into the content you wont notice his voice at all. After a show or two, it will cease to be an issue. Now go download Common Sense and take a listen to some great solutuions to our societies toughest problems.

Its a great place to get a look at, or at least a peak at, both sides of the issues. He does more than anyone Ive listened to toward giving you his opinion and the opinion of those on the other side of the issue. You get a chance to agree or disagree with him based on the facts from both sides, even when you may not think hes on the right side of an issue.

All Dan's podcasts
These are great ,I just wish some of our politicians had the oratory ,and common sense that Dan has .. Of coarse I realize Ben is behind him keeping him on track. We here in Canada have the same power crazed politicians ,willing to wade through sleaze and lies to get their little puppet positions .Not a one with any guts or Karisma. This is why people like Dan are not running the Countries . Just imagine the country with Dan as Prez and Ben VP. Neil

I listen to Bill Maher for humor, Bill OReilly for outrage - and Dan Carlin for the truth. He is one of the best political commentators I have ever come across.

Here is a podcast that refreshes from so many partisan podcast. Despite my often disagrement with the host, Dan Carlins arguments are generally a good equilibrium between passion and reason. For a foreingner, it makes americans bearable! Americans, listen and make up your own mind.

As advertised
This show goes above and beyond political punditry--its commentary on the American psyche through the lens of state affairs and economic affairs. The opinions offered are controversial, well-reasoned, and often spot on in my opinion. But you dont have to like Dans opinions to love his show. It is nothing if not thought-provoking. Now wheres that new episode?

I am a proud independent citizen, and this podcast seems to have been designed for me. Not that I always agree. But that is the beauty. Dan knows how to passionately, yet respectfully, argue his positions. Very entertaining and very thought provoking. I look forward to listening to Dan for years to come. Craig Weier Detroit, MI

Im a Canadian and am an ardent fan of Hardcore History. Ive hesitated to subscribe to Commonsense because I assumed that it would mostly be about U.S. politics. But I was starving for good meaty talk so I checked out a few Commonsense shows. I picked out a few shows to listen to which seemed to have more than a national focus. To quote most of your reviewers "I dont always agree with Dan but..." You know, we in Canada have a love-hate relationship with the U.S. Part of that feeling comes from how your government conducts itself in the world, part how it conducts itself with Canada, and part how the mainstream U.S. media regards your country. How refreshing to not get the usual crap political reporting I would get from that mainstream media. Thank you. Great show. I must say that Show 125 (Mad About Torture) brought up stuff I totally agree with and feel very passionately about. Bravo. Very well analyzed. Keep up the good work.

This podcast took me from the depths of partisanship to a level of objectivity I could never have obtained otherwise. No longer am I a partisan robot, for a party I shall not name, who believes and votes the way I am told to.

I wish there were a lot more shows like this. Dan has called himself the Iggy Pop of talk radio but thats a little too Baby Boomer for me. Hes really more of a Greg Graffin. He calls the show Common Sense, says what he does is neoprudentism, but its actually DIY, punk rock, old fashioned, American pragmatism. Id like to express my thanks to him and the technology gods that make this show possible. Lets hope the long tail turns out to be tall enough to let this show grow. Maybe someday Dan will be more than just a minor threat to big media.

I came upon Common Sense when I was searching for more politcal podcasts to give me a viewpoint other than that presented by the Big Three (MSN, CNN, FOX). I aboslutely love Dans perspective on the world. On some subjects, Im in total agreement. On others, I wish I could talk directly to him and tell him why hes dead wrong. But the one common thread is that he logically argues all of his positions and I am eager to hear them. This is a great show for anyone who enjoys listening to logical commentary on current affairs. I only wish that Dan could do more interviews.

Political Analysis for People who are fed up with the RIght & the Left!
Dan Carlins Common Sense Show is the absolute best, non-partisan American political commentary and analysis show hands down. For intelligent people who are fed up with the white noise and distractions of both the Left and the Right this show is truly a breath of fresh air. While I may not agree with Mr. Carlin on every issue, over the past 2+ years, Ive benefited immeasurably from his insightful, "common sense" discussions of foreign and domestic events. Thanks Mr. Carlin - keep up the good work!

I like this podcast because I cannot predict what Dan carlin is about to say about a topic. I do not always agree with him and I am sometimes wondering what is the difference between common sense and bad populism (its not so simple to figure out). What reassures me a bit is his vast culture in history. I hope it gives him some perspective. Anyway, I have been neglecting the other poscasts I usually listen to !!!

Thank goodness & basic Common Sense. Please dont ever leave us Dan....the general public, the guy on the street, the man next door, and the majority of average humans who still give a damn. No we dont believe everything that is being spoon-feed to us by our politicians and the media. Sometimes though we need a loud wake-up call to re-engage us in what is happening. We all need to think about these issues, whether we agree or not. Apathy is a killer.

political/social dissection at its best
This is a FANTASTIC podcast. Not only do I appreciate Dans genuine intensity and passion, but this has got to be the best place to get another political point of view, I dont always agree with him, (but he knows that and thats the point)-- the point is to open up the topics in ways that they ARENT being opened up, even though they should be. And then, always, what are the ramifications of whats being done? His episode on torture comes to mind. Trust me, its an honest and fascinating podcast no matter your political orientation.

Excellent Podcast
Carlin trusts his listeners to think for themselves, and invites them to contact him with their disagreements, indicating a much greater respect for his audience than other political commentators. Moreover, because Carlin takes time to describe his views and to make clear his own personla assumptions and biases, listening to him articulate points that you disagree with may not change your mind, but it will make you think about your own views more carefully.

Dan Carlin is amazing
Are you a Republican? A Democrat? An Independant? Libertarian or Green? Even if you are an international listener with little knowledge of the American political system, or an American with no real interest in the status quo, this webcast has something for you. Dans take on things just makes sense. Listen to just one show with a skeptical ear - thats how I started. I kept waiting for him to turn into a nut ball, and it simply never happened. Im hooked now. You really must listen to this webcast.

Refreshing and Important Commentary
Its difficult to say how much I like this podcast. After listening to over 20 episodes, I can say that Dan Carlin really presents actual common sense. If I dont initially agree with what he says (which is admittedly rare), his rationale is usually so good it makes me feel kind of silly for being opposed to his idea in the first place. He is independent. If you listen to an episode and it seems like he leans too far towards one direction, just keep listening. Hell change it up at some point.

Uncommonly sensible.
Dan Carlin offers, for free and without annoying commercial breaks, a much higher quality of political commentary than one can find anywhere on the FM or AM dial. You may not agree with every position he argues, but his perspectives are unfailingly well-reasoned and well-articulated...and easy on the ears, to boot. Carlins talk show used to be an important part of my radio consumption, back in his days of Oregon radio broadcast, and Ive missed him ever since his show went off the air. Im delighted to have rediscovered him in the podcasting medium. Hes well worth a listen.

I am a huge fan of Carlins Hardcore History podcast, and avoided this show for fear of losing respect for him over his political views. When I finally gave it a listen I discovered quite the contrary. Carlin is, as he says, a true alternative to the partisan political shows that are the bane of AM radio. His fervent dedication to common sense politics and stringent criticism of both parties are refreshing, and his ideas and views are thought-provoking and thoroughly informed.

Where political commentary is on steriods, in a good way.
Dan Carlins thoughts on politics are very interesting and engaging. Unlike some political radio hosts he does not claim to always have the right answer, but he analyzes the problems so as to find their solution. Better yet, he does this in a fairly logical and historically influenced manner. Kudos for that. This podcast is not for hardcore republicans or democrats, as their heads may explode... unless that is the goal. Excellent.

Dans the man
I dont recall how, but I am greatful I discovered Dan Carlin. My commute, roughly 30 min road time each way, has been replaced with a time to get a better grasp. The older I Like Ike and Kryptonite made me a big fan. Things you wouldnt hear elsewhere on topics that almosted blotted out the sun in media overattention (at the time). Common Sense nailed it in my book. And he does it with humor, familiar schtick and even, style. Just want both sides: CS and HH to come more often. I know...

Dan certainly has a style all his own, and is likely to offend some of your sensabilities, sooner or later.

Reminds me of a potical version of freakenomics - I listened to one show and now Im an addict, though true to his prediction I dont agree 100% of the time with his assertions I do find his theories and commentaries very inspiring and informative and plan to make donations to help Ben get well as soon as I am able!

Keep it up
This is the best take on US politics I have read in a long time! I am British and as you look at us under the microscope to see how this CCTV surveillance thing is going to pan out, we are looking at your "extreme democracy" and that is keeping our own executive branch (the PM and co) in check. After all we all agree don't want to end up like the states :) Pete-

Default isn't in the Cake!
You apparently decided to boil down the complex Social Security Program with of mix of fear and flattery. By dismissing the "liberal Krugman" with the "Consensus View", i.e. the privatization plan yet again. Implicit in your commentary is privatization disguised as... Our politicians are simply not honest enough to tell you the truth! However the facts are that when Social Security starts drawing on the trust fund it will repay these bonds just the same as millions of people, corporations, and banks would be repaid if the bonds where held in private personal retirement accounts (you might have noticed that it's the private bond market that's more than a little stressed lately). The bulk of the money the Treasury gets to repay its bonds comes from individual and corporate income taxes (general revenue/IOU's). A little Hardcore History Please... A Bi-partisan National Commission chaired by Allen Greenspan agreed to a financing solution for the SSI programs for both the short run, 1983-89 and the long range, 1983-2056 (as measured by an intermediate cost estimate). The most recent projections from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office show that Social Security will have enough money between projected taxes and the bonds in the trust fund to pay all benefits through the year 2046, with no changes whatsoever. If you, Ben Bernanke or any politician of your choice propose cuts to Social Security please be clear, if the benefits are cut, the government has effectively defaulted on the bonds. If default is what you or our representatives propose, it would be a very serious miscalculation raising the prospect of defaulting on government bonds held privately both here and abroad.

Independents unite!
What if there was a candidate that held one view that was important from each type of independent and we could all have a reason to vote for this person. Being pro life could translate into not wanting abortions while wanting to fund healthcare more universally for mothers and children and protecting our environment while pushing other poluters like China to straighten up their human rights and envronmental excesses. Futher, this pro human existence could find a way to end the war by having Iraqis manufacture solar panels and allowing the oil companies getting a oligopoly on the product.

Best Bipartisan Political Commentary & Analysis, Hands Down.
Drawing from the common-sense bedrock of the U.S constitution, Dan Carlin provides an incredibly entertaining, insightful weekly view of the US political scene - roses, warts and all. Being fiercely bipartisan, Dan is both blessed and cursed with a worldview (and fanbase) that does not neatly fall into any political category, yet somehow makes sense of it all in a way that inspires real change.

Thanks Dan
Always a thoughtful discussion. As one who has always eschewed the corporate or career lifestyle and has chosen to live on the margins I cant wait to hear what you have to say in "losers". My observations of the petite bourgeoisie as well of the so-called "successful" lead me to a sense of relief that my daily concerns DO NOT emulate the, absurd, degenerate, and sometimes simply idiotic goings on in many "wealthy" households I have been privy to observe. On the other hand, many good people handle their success with aplomb and genuine good citizenship (not leftist pseudo-citizenship), so I congratulate them. Thanks for your good works Dan.

Good for the Cynic & the Soul
For many of us--those becoming more and more disenfranchised by the political machine in the US--it is refreshing to hear an "independent" voice. Three cheers for Dan Carlin--lets hope more and more find "common sense."

Dan Carlin is unique in that he attacks the current problems with an open mind and an unlimited curiosity. He offers solutions that sometimes see implausible but aways make you think.

Best Political Discussion
Dan Carlin rages against the machine while grasping for solutions to fix the mechanism in this great non-partisan political forum. But dont be fooled. Just because its non-partisan doesnt mean its unbiased. Dan takes current events and puts his own very personal take on whats wrong with modern politics and society and, occasionally, offers suggestions on how to correct them.

How refreshing... no bombast or belittling. No skewing of the facts for the party line. No "Im the God of Opinion on earth." He tells it like he sees it from a truly independent point of view. Makes me think instead of trying to make me mad. Well... he says hes going to make everyone mad eventually but I actually like listening to reasoned points of view that are different than my own. Key word... reasoned.

Common Sense - the title says it all
Entertaining and informative. This is not a label Id assign to most political conversation. Carlin discusses thought provoking issues and entertains creative solutions while making no effort to walk the wire. He steps on toes to the left and he steps on toes to the right. Others may step on just as many toes but Carlin politely explains why you should move your feet with clear and rhetoric free discourse. Every American should be listening to this podcast.

Great show-- stimulates lively discussion
Whether you agree with him or not on a given issue, Dan Carlin is sure to get you thinking about the issue in more detail. The best thing about the show: You get the feeling that you could change his mind, so that he agrees with YOU, if you presented him with a compelling argument backed up by substantiated facts. In fact, he ends each show with the line, "If you have a different opinion, Id love to hear it, contact me at [then he gives his contact information]." Refreshing! And his Hard Core History podcast is arguably even better (and less politically charged, for the squeamish out there). Ethan

Fear of free thinking.
I wish I had more time to be involved in the discussions, but yesterday, driving through the jungle I listened to Dans latest on the survivability of being independent and whether or not he should continue to the volume of negative email, comments on the teachers union etc. Ive always said, if I only associated with people I agree with, I wouldnt have any friends. I think it dangerous to surround ones self with only those who agree with you - look at history and see the flaw in that strategy. Anyway, I was offended by the number of people apparently offended so here I am to vote and say, dont you dare stop - finally the public has someone whos not following a particular mono-philosophy. In fact, Im going to make a contribution right now to offset anyone who may have given up on free thinking. Right on Dan, you dont suck.

You cant make an omelet without breaking some eggs, and Dan Carlin certainly isnt one who concerns himself with walking on egg shells, either. When it comes to Common Sense, he tends to the alternate views which make people think. These views are the necessary ingredients we need in order to help formulate ideas that step away from the bipartisan dogmas fed to us daily. Even when I dont exactly agree with him, he always ends up serving up a tasty treat for the mind.

Dan Carlin is one of the handful of honest commentators who take the time to not only research REAL news but to ponder all sides of an issue and offer solutions that actually make sense. The program and commentary are well organized and Dan is excellent at staying on topic. He raises questions that have not even occured to me, he causes me to rethink my own opinions and ultimately, I feel hes PROVOKING me into being more open-minded about not only issues, but my fellow countrymen. I dont agree with everything Dan believes and I wonder about his admiration of someone like Pat Buchanan but overall, this podcast is a TRUE winner.

Folks, cant say enough good things about this podcast. Taking a truly non-partisan view of todays socio-political landscape, Ive come to love this brilliant curmudgeon.

Incredible Show guys!
Hands down, absolutely the *best* socio-political commentary blog online. Whether you lean left, right or anywhere in the middle, Dan Carlin has a way of making you think about the issues in an entirely new light. (BTW - Ive updated my opinion about his voice: Turns out that Rushbaugh, Kermit, and Wallace Shawn are a kind of aural Reeses snack that inexplicably work when combined in his distinctive oratory style! Yea, Mr, Carlins dulcet tones simply bedazzle the ear, adding yet another reason I cant help but come back week after week!) Keep up the good work, Friend. Modulator

This podcast really inspires and gives me hope for the future of the country. I think many of the younger people are quickly jaded to the demagoguery that exists in the political world and see through it. Instead of being a hopeless, apathetic observer, I realize that there are people out there generating honest, non-partisan, opinions. Dan has really rejuvenated my thinking and attitude about current affairs and politics. Thanks Dan.

A Call for Reason
This fellow does not fall easily into any neat category like conservative or liberal. He is a straight up guy, leaning neither right nor left. If you cannot avoid the need to pigeonhole him based on his discourses, the only label I could accurately pin on him would be "mercilessly anti-stupidity". No party lines tolerated here. If you are not at least a little angry about the way things are, you are definitely not paying attention. That has seldom been truer than it is now, and yet Mr. Carlin provides hope through solutions. A former history professor, he discusses issues in terms of how we got here, and what we can do about it. A very encouraging podcast which will be essential listening to intelligent people who can think outside the box.

Perhaps what the commenter intended to say is that Dan is not mean, which does make him different in a world of Limbaughs and Coulters. Heres to hoping Mr. Carlin has a long, successful career castin to the masses! And that Ben makes a speedy recovery!

Turns out there is a LOT to discuss nowadays
While I may not agree with Mr. Carlin on every issue (Left or Right) I can honestly say this is hands down the best social/political Podcast Ive ever heard. I came across this relatively non-partisan show after having gotten hooked on Carlins "Hardcore History" series, which kicks ASS. When I Googled him to find more episodes, I was elated to discover this long-running commentary podcast. Bringing a colorful, broad and historical perspective (historical as in actually remembering and learning from Historys past lessons) to current political debate, this show intelligently covers everything that really matters in current political and social debate. If you can get past his somewhat irksome voice (imagine an unholy combination of Rush Limbaugh, Kermit the Frog & Wallace Shawn), youll come to understand just why our moribund 6 oclock news institutions are on their last legs. Thanks so much Mr. Carlin. We hear you.

But I need to say that with your show I finally feel at home, Its a place where I can not only disagree but agree as well. Its just nice to know that is a show out there like yours that pushes people to think on their own and not feel judged, right, or wrong. But to think about every aspect that affects our lives without major bias and bias where needed.

Are you paying attention?
Dont like any of the various "party lines" the present bunch of boobs in government spew at us? Dan Carlin gives me hope that there are intelligent, sensible people out there who are not snowed by the politicians (in my view, a derogatory term) who claim to represent us. And while other podcasts dispense more "party lines" in the face of logic to the contrary, Mr. Carlin examines things in a no-nonsense manner, analyzes how they got that way, and proposes solutions that make sense. He IS an acquired taste, but once you "get it" you cant get enough. Be warned, though - he doesnt suffer fools gladly. Common Sense with Dan Carlin is the best!

Screw bi-partisanship! When the Donkey and the Elephant get together on something, it just makes for a big fat ass! Then were all screwed. NON-partisan pragmatism is our only hope, and Dan Carlin is the best voice of reason rising above the monopoly of the choice of two evils that is the current political miliu. No matter what your philosophy, Dan will get you thinking, and that is where change starts.
