Marco and Rand score perfect 100 voting record ratings as top "Defenders of Liberty"

Top enemies of liberty? Schumer, Durbin and Franken 

From Eric Dondero: 

We're not at all surprised here at LR. 

Politico reports, "American Conservative Union: Marco Rubio, Rand Paul perfect vote record":
Sens. Marco Rubio and Rand Paul were among around 40 House and Senate members to receive a perfect conservative voting score from the sponsor of next month’s Conservative Political Action Conference, according to the group’s rankings released on Thursday.
In the Senate, Rubio and Paul — both mentioned as possible 2016 presidential contenders — were awarded the “Defenders of Liberty” designation, receiving a “perfect 100 percent” score on their voting records. Joining them were: Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and former Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.).
Top House members include: Reps. Michele Bachmann, Tom Price of Georgia, Joe Wilson of South Carolina and quite interestingly Jeff Flake of Arizona and Tim Scott of South Carolina, both of whom have now been elevated to the US Senate. 

Lowest scorers, as enemies of liberty? All Democrats, of course. In the Senate, Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin and Al Franken.  In the House, 80 members scored as perfect liberals/fascists, including Reps. Maxine Waters, Rosa DeLauro, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Sheila Jackson-Lee.

Of particular note, Republicans are rated as "pro-liberty" on the Senate side, 77% of the time, Democrats 5.8% of the time.  In the House, Republicans are pro-liberty 83% of the time, Dems 8%.

The term "conservative" is useless.

Polls show Mississippi and Alabama to be among the most "conservative states", but they are clearly not always the most pro freedom states.

That is undoubtedly true John.

Shall we call Rand and Rubio the "Dynamic Duo."

" but they are clearly not always the most pro freedom states."

Clearly? How so?

The sad thing about bigotry is how fucking stupid it renders it's adherents.
