Skip to comments.Very Difficult To Find Conservatives In Congress (Vanity)
Posted on 07/27/2013 4:17:06 AM PDT by IbJensen
Thanks to the New American magazine and the American Conservative Union, we can identify the true Conservatives in the U. S. Congress. It's not a pretty or encouraging picture.
In the House of Representatives there are only 15. They are as follows with the asterisk indicating those who have a 100% Conservative voting record:
It's truly a disgrace that we have only 15 who are dedicated to Constitutional and Conservative principals. We've lost the valiant Bachmann who served her state and this nation with honor and I'm proud to have been one of her many supporters.
In the Senate the picture is even gloomier as we can only find 8 out of 100 that are true Constitutional Conservatives. Rand Paul didn't make the cut because his record was one point under that of Mitch McConnell who is certainly not my favorite Senator, but nevertheless his record is 90.
The fact that there are only 23 true Conservatives presently serving in the U. S. Congress should be like a bucket of cold water in our faces. Who most of us voted for and supported are a disgrace to the nation and to the Constitution.
It becomes increasingly clear that America is in deep trouble and it gets deeper with each passing day. The Congress needs a vacuum cleaner taken to it and then emptied into the trash can. The central socialist government needs a meat axe taken to it and the end result being decimation.
And you can add Morgan Griffith of Virginia and Scott Perry of Pennsylvania. I know both and they are good men.
I agree with your referenced links; however, Michelle did have an undisputed 100% record.
You can add them yourself. This is my list and both Griffith and Perry have 70% records and this just isn’t good enough for me.
This is sort of a flaky article. It assumes the authors are the definers of conservative. Balderdash.
There is no homogeneous conservatism. The article points that fact out by omission. Christ like conservative purity is at best a pipedream.
Bachmann did have an undisputed record until the other day. Of course, they are investigating her. I now realize they must have something on her to get her to go along and pretty much “shut up”! It was quite disappointing!
“...Griffith and Perry have 70% records...”
That's what these political elites want us to believe as they abet the destruction of America by beating it into a shape that will fit into the NWO and be obedient to the desires of the UN.
Go Justin! Best vote I’ve ever made.
Where is Tim Walberg on that list? He has always been a rock-ribbed conservative.
The large article is in the most recent edition of the New American magazine and hasn’t been posted to the internet yet.
I didn’t include Walberg, mainly because it’s my list and my criteria, because his record is 70%.
That is going to have to happen in the voting booths.
And it won't happen until we stop blaming the "GOPe" entity for forcing people to vote for RINOs, and win Americans over to Conservative values.
” because his record is 70%.”
IMHO if we have a rep that is voting with us say 80% of the time... then I think we can count them in our camp.
For example....civil rights legislation.
Bogus or incomplete at best. I know my congressman personally and he is as conservative as they come. Daniel Webster, Florida.
