Unbelievable....He is not even on the list!

Most conservative House member?

http://hotlineoncall.nationaljournal.com/archives/2010/02/na...

Wait...
look at the nomenclature on the bottom...I missed it...

Update II: Many comments wonder where Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) is on our list of most conservative House members. Paul has conservative vote rankings in the economic category (85%) and the social category (73%), but his votes on foreign policy are much more centrist (53% conservative). That makes him the 140th-most conservative member in the House.

Their update

should say Ron Paul's votes on foreign policy are conservative, but the criteria they're using is neoconservative.

I would like to know what

I would like to know what their definition of "Conservative" is.

I guess just as Right and Left no longer mean anything anymore, with Conservative being called "rightwing" and also Nazis getting the same label, now Conservative doesn't really mean anything.

I imagine we will have to go to CONSTITUTIONALIST or even Libertarian. The problem with the term Libertarian is that some "Libertarians" go to extremes of not even wanting public roads, police or fire protection.

If we start using the term CONSTITUTIONALIST, we have a written document that explains our position. If it is not authorized in the Constitution, I am against it.

Constitutionalist huh?

Has a nice ring to it

public roads

Public roads, aside from being huge sources of graft and corruption, are the government's tool for making you get a driver's license. And the driver's license was and is the government's foremost means of identifying, tracking, and compiling information on the people. The driver's license is the de facto national id.

Public roads are also the government's justification for random searches of vehicles, checkpoints, and photo surveillance.

So enjoy those public roads!

As for fire protection, it is provided by the private sector all over the country right now. And guess what? No firestorms raging.

As for the police, it is such a huge issue I don't want to go into it here. I do think you need to have courts and a small police force to enforce court orders for resolving property disputes and such. I depart from the anarchists there.

But police spend most of their time - and out money - doing things that do not need to be done. Like invading our privacy and killing us.

But those kooky libertarians are a menace. Hahahaha!

on update II

has anyone asked where they got their information?

Static class, teach how you can manipulate data to prove or disprove any point with regards on the area of study.

In designing polls a person learns, as most of us know, A poll can asked a question in a way to get the response you want.
Example
biased polling questions:
Rate how Good a job Obama is doing as president?
Rate how BAD a job Obama is doing as president?
A true non-biased poll question:
Rate the job Obama is doing as president?

They consider war to be conservative?

AS in, against anyone at any time, with no budget at all?

Even if you have a terminal illness you are sensitive to the bills. Maybe ESPECIALLY then, because that is when they can most easily add up.

Since when is throwing budgets out the window on ANY topic conservative?

Integrity means having to say things that people don't want to hear & especially to say things that the regime doesnt want to hear -RonPaul

Ron Paul is My President

This is propaganda at it's finest

So pro war is considered

So pro war is considered conservative? How dumb of me to think otherwise.

A neo-con redefining of what 'conservative'

means, does not actually change the true meaning of the word.

We the people will and are reinstating the true definition of conservative. Ron Paul's picture is next to the entry for conservative and needs no further words, just his picture.
