Ron Paul Leaves Congress as One of the Most Conservative Members Since 1976

Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), libertarian hero and constitutionalist congressman, will end the last term of his political career as the number two conservative in the House of Representatives behind Jeff Flake (R-AZ), according to a ranking system of all members of congress created by two political science professors.

The “DW-Nominate” ranking system, created by University of Georgia political science professor Keith Poole and New York University professor Howard Rosenthal, ranks all 636 legislators in the House and the Senate and is available on Voteview.com.

According to the rankings, Paul held the number one spot for multiple years, despite being behind Flake in recent ones.

When he first won a special election in 1976 to the 94th Congress, Congressman Paul immediately became the most conservative member in the House, according to the ranking system.

THE MORE I LEARN ABOUT GOVERNMENT

I do agree of course but

I didn't see any mention of Lawrence Patton McDonald of Georgia....any reason why?

For neocons, gop/rnc:

Ron Paul ”ended the letter by saying that Republicans have expanded the “worst aspects” of the “Democratic agenda” and called them their own, and suggested that the Republican party had zero credibility “as a force to reduce the size of government.”

That about sums up the definition of republicrat. Furthermore, the bigger the house of cards becomes, the easier it will be to blow it down.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

blown down?

I think of it more like blowing out the Neocons/RINOs from the GOP.

Perhaps this is our difference? You want to blow the house down and I want to blow the Neos out?

Granger - blow down, blow out..

Must I remind you that you can not mince words with me? You keep looking for differences between us. Rest assured, there are some. But Granger, my dear, we also have things in common whether you want to believe so or not :-)

If you read my post carefully, you will see that I precisely used the term 'republicrat'. It is each and every one of 'them' who make up the house of cards. Truth, justice, Liberty, will expose them all. Are you up with current events, such as with boehner?

Blow down, blow out, the objective is the same.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Not to me

It's one thing to work to blow out the neos from the GOP, completely different to blow down the republic.

Not to me.

Take a deep breath. Now exhale.

Feel better?

You are sooo contrary, lol

Btw, I NEVER said to blow down the 'REPUBLIC'. That is what I am trying to restore.

You teach yoga?

You implied blow down the republic. And that is why I commented, completely calm.

Yoga?

lol no, I would be the last person to teach yoga. But I did used to meditate.

No Granger, I NEVER implied to blow down the Republic, For Which It Stands. Don't you remember? I voted for RON PAUL

Hey, I need your opinion on this if you have a few:

Thanks

That was such a great letter from RP to the GOP.
I posted it here on DP last summer.

Anyways the down-voting from Pollman started he just down-voted this post (even though it's front-paged by the owner of the site) and also the one I just posted about FISA down-voted as well.
Why is this troll allowed to do his dirty work here I have no freaking idea.

You are welcome.

I will not get in the middle of disputes. I promote Liberty, and seek restoring our nation to sound economics, the Constitution, and honest conservatives as our representatives. The owner of this site has no power to decide for me what I feel is worthy or not. But I do warmly thank him for hosting this site.

"But I do warmly thank him for hosting this site."

Same here.

Without Michael Nystrom's wisdom the LM Liberty Movement would perhaps be 6 years back the way it was all frozen ...

Salute to MN!

Ron Paul second behind Jeff Flake in conservative rankings...

Second? That's a good one...Let me guess, voting for the Patriot Act, War on Terror and proposing laws to ban gay marriage at the federal level is considered conservative?

Ron Paul is perhaps the ONLY true conservative (adherence to the Constitution) in the last decades...
