Voting Index

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.
Aside from the fairly transparent United Nations agenda, the UN Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development offered a great deal of insight into the forces working together against national sovereignty, private property, individual liberty, and economic freedom. Big business was there — mostly begging for more government control and taxpayer money. A wide assortment of tax-funded “non-governmental organizations” — known as NGOs for short — was there, too. Unsurprisingly, they mostly demanded more government control. The press was there cheerleading every step of the way.
Notoriously homosexual congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) “married” his longtime partner Jim Ready in a public ceremony officiated by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. Major media organs like the New York Times and the Washington Post used the high-profile event as an opportunity to demonstrate their acceptance of homosexual marriage as a domestic celebration worthy of their society pages.

Less than two weeks after becoming the first sitting cabinet member in American history to be held in contempt of Congress, disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder spoke in front of the highly controversial National Council of La Raza — it means “The Race” in Spanish — and issued threats against ongoing state and local efforts to control illegal immigration or enforce voter-ID requirements. He also touted an administration effort to stop deportations while promising to keep working with President Obama to pass the “Dream Act” and secure amnesty for illegal immigrants.  
The Wall Street Journal lit into the Mitt Romney and his campaign on its editorial page last week, describing the presumptive Republican presidential nominee as timid and overly cautious, and his campaign as looking "confused in addition to being politically dumb."
So Chief Justice John Roberts joined the liberal wing of the Supreme Court to decide that ObamaCare, including the hugely unpopular “mandate,” is perfectly OK under the U.S. Constitution. Of course, Roberts had to twist the facts like a pretzel to justify the ruling. Barack Obama had insisted that Obamacare “absolutely” was not a tax. The measure’s supporters in Congress said the same thing, over and over again.
Now that the Supreme Court has effectively rewritten the Affordable Care Act to find the mandate to purchase health insurance constitutional and President Obama has been implementing some of his legislative agenda with executive orders, members of Congress might wonder if they really are the nation's lawmakers.
