Freedom Index: A Congressional Scorecard Based on the U.S. Constitution.
This voting index is currently published twice a year in The New American magazine. Each index scores all 535 members of Congress on 10 key votes on a scale of 0% to 100%. The more the Representatives and Senators adhere to the Constitution in their votes, the higher their scores on this index.

President Obama is tearing the shroud of secrecy off his once hush-hush death-by-drone program.  From his interview with Ben Swann, host of Fox 19’s Reality Check, to his sit-down with CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jessica Yellin, the kill-list compiler-in-chief is gradually exposing details of the principles he purportedly follows before targeting someone for assassination.
 In the 1920s, when Marxist-influenced politicians in Mexico virtually outlawed practicing the Christian religion, both priests and parishioners stood their ground.
 Let's take a look at all the fuss and fury about Paul Ryan's auto-plant remarks. But first let me ask you, what do you think President Obama’s biggest lie has been since he took office nearly four years ago?
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has announced a new “wellness program” for all city employees and their spouses (or domestic partners or civil-union spouses). “Our program will change lives, make our workforce healthier, and save taxpayers money,” Emanuel said.  
Who says those allegedly narrow, highly partisan, and bitterly divisive ideologues in today's Republican Party refuse to take a bipartisan approach to problem solving? In just the past two weeks the Grand Old Party has "disappeared" George W. Bush and embraced Bill Clinton.
Free-market financial analyst, author and radio talk-show host Peter Schiff made some waves online with his baiting of delegates at this week's Democratic National Convention. Schiff, microphone in hand, trotted down to the DNC confab in Charlotte, North Carolina, and asked delegates to agree to a platform change to ban all corporate profits. About half of those filmed on his YouTube video, which already has more than half a million views in just a few days, did agree.
