Breaking Down the Scorecard: The Liberty 18

One of the benefits of the Liberty Scorecard is that you can see, for the first time in a single scorecard, the breakdown of the two-party system and the reality that we are engaged in a struggle for liberty against authoritarians, cronies, and hawks. Out of 435 members in the U.S. House of Representatives, only 18 Representatives scored 70 or above.  Only 18 representatives are willing to stand up for peace, prosperity, limited and local government, civil liberties, fiscal responsibility, and sound monetary policy, at least most of the time. Only 79 additional representatives scored above 50. Only 79 additional representatives vote for liberty more often than they vote against it. Over 75% of the U.S. House of Representatives does not represent the cumulative interests of the American people even half of the time.
