Ron Paul Leaves Congress as One of the Most Conservative Members Since 1976

Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX), libertarian hero and constitutionalist congressman, will end the last term of his political career as the number two conservative in the House of Representatives behind Jeff Flake (R-AZ), according to a ranking system of all members of congress created by two political science professors. The “DW-Nominate” ranking system, created by University of Georgia political science professor Keith Poole and New York University professor Howard Rosenthal, ranks all 636 legislators in the House and the Senate and is available on According to the rankings, Paul held the number one spot for multiple years, despite being behind Flake in recent ones.
Being Libertarian doesn't make you a conservative. Aside from being a self identified Constitutionist, he is blatant lefty. That in addition to the fact, he's a flaming whack job. BTW, The American Conservative Union ranks Paul as one of the least Conservative congressmen out there.
