    This is very very cool. The Heritage Foundation...a well known GOP political strategy organization....has rated capital hill politicians for adherance to conservative principles.

    My rep out here in California is a blue dog Democrat...and he only got 16%!.....you gotta be just like Rush Limbaugh to rate high on this scale.

    Whatever side you fall on....this is interesting....and I highly approve of holding Washington politicians accountable...these guys are doing a good thing for all of us

    Well at least they're holding their guys accountable....you gotta like that aspect......do you? The left, and Libertarians should do the same thing....

    Be nice to get the word of the rankings around more so folks could check up from time to time.

    Well.. they have Roscoe Bartlett from our area in MD rated above 70%... and that is very misleading... because he is pretty shady and has sided with Obamacare and other things that are not very conservative.... Would love to get new true conservative blood in his seat

    They've held people like San Miguel County (CO) Sheriff Bill Masters accountable...Seems he has managed to get re-elected several times.

    Philosophically I'm a libertarian too, was going to join the party til they put in that republican hack Bob Barr at the top of the ticket.


    Just saying there's none in any prominent level of gov't. Reps and dems buddy up to make sure of that.
