    I have a list & their voting records, Regards!!!
    Senator Dole, (R-NC), was considered the #10 most conservative Senator by the American Conservative Union.

    Now, that might or might not measure up to the your standards of being a conservative, Marvin, but it is at least one as judged by a conservative organization.

    Kind Regards,

    Joe S.

    Really?

    I would venture a guess that over the course of our nation's history at least one person who has died in it's defense came from a family that, for whatever reason, did not pay taxes. I don't know about you, but I'd call that a vested interest.

    What's next? You have to be a land owner to vote?

    Please-----Senator Dole is married to former Senator Robert Dole, miserably failed Repub candidate for POTUS, who as a Senator never met a tax increase he didn't like. He championed the special deal for a winery in CA to allow them to avoid inheritance taxes on approx $600 million in potential gains. Her final campaign ad was tacky & showed desperation on her part.

    Anyone can call themselves conservative, I could name several names, but that doesn't mean they are. Their performance is where they show they are truly conservative.

    You are not conservative if you can only talk about it, you must show through deed that in fact your are a true believer in limited government & fiscal responsibility.

    BTW, her name does not appear on my list, but these do with their rating immediately following:

    ------------------------Defenders of Economic Freedom

    -----Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC)-----------------------100%
    -----Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK)-----------------------97%
    -----Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC)-----------------------97%
    -----Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ)----------------------------92%
    -----Sen. James Imhofe (R-OK)----------------------91%
    -----Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) -----------------------90%

    Pretty short list, isn't it? & that's something the Repubs have to turn around or we will continue as a minority party for some time. Patrick's state did themselves proud.

    AUH2O principles Rule

    Now, how about those House members.

    I personally come from a family that has a lot of non-tax payers in it. I really don't think I want people with that mentality determining the direction of the country. I think most of the people who would put that power in their hands hasn't been around much of it. My perspective comes from growing up in it and working my way out.
