        Because he has been an RLC endorsee (back when an RLC endorsement was a rare
        distinction) and is the champion of the FairTax. His Liberty Index ratings
        are as follows:

        Liberty Index Ratings

        Pers% Econ% Comb%
        1993 p: 73 e: 96 c: 84.5 Libertarian
        1994 p: 55 e: 82 c: 68.5 Enterpriser
        1995 p: 61 e: 78 c: 69.5 Enterpriser
        1996 p: 69 e: 82 c: 75.5 Libertarian
        1997 p: 65 e: 68 c: 66.5 Enterpriser
        1998 p: 78 e: 75 c: 76.5 Libertarian
        1999 p: 74 e: 77 c: 75.5 Libertarian
        2000 p: 76 e: 86 c: 81.0 Libertarian
        2001 p: 63 e: 89 c: 76.0 Libertarian
        2002 p: 68 e: 90 c: 79.0 Libertarian
        2003 p: 35 e: 90 c: 62.5 Right-Winger
        2004 p: 55 e: 90 c: 72.5 Enterpriser
        2005 p: 40 e: 95 c: 67.5 Right-Winger
        LIFE p: 63 e: 85 c: 73.5 Enterpriser

        Now that you ask, I see that his liberty-inclinations appear to have tapered
        off in later years--perhaps an argument for term limits--but, on the whole,
        he has been one of the more consistent champions of liberty in congress.

          Yes, I don't think he's had many liberty-inclinations for some time now.
          Many of us here are thankful to see him go, and hope that his FairTax bill -
          which he loved to tout in the district, but never did anything for in DC -
          leaves with him. I used to support it, before I researched it more in-depth.
          No thanks. :-/
