Common.

This is integrity. This is leadership.

All we do in America right now is talk about color; every issue -- every issue -- is about race -- is about color -- instead of us sitting down at the table like men and women of common sense and common justice, and understanding that our enemies are looking with a greedy vigilance upon us as we tear ourselves apart internally ...

Tennessee State Representative John J. DeBerry, Jr.

At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.

Abraham Lincoln, from "The Perpetuation of Our Political Institutions," an address by Abraham Lincoln before the Young Men's Lyceum of Springfield, January 27, 1838
