Every year a computer-assisted analysis is done by the National Journal that uses key Senate votes and places every senator on a liberal-to-conservative scale. Earlier this year, the 2007 ranking were released and Senator Barack Obama was rated by as the number one most liberal senator. Obama was given this ranking for good reason, here is a summary of his key voting record for the year:
Obama consistently voted for higher taxes and more government encroachment into our lives. He voted to give benefits to illegal aliens and to make it more difficult to enforce immigration laws. And unborn child is apparently not an unborn child to Obama. His national defense record is abysmal, voting to give money to the UN and World Bank while cutting off funds to our own troops. And its astonishing the amount of key legistlation on which he did not even vote. He can’t even make up his mind, yes or no, on college financial aid or on funding abortion groups. Someone too weak to take a stand on key issues is sure to weaken our country. Obama’s voting record clearly shows us the direction he will take this country and it is not a good one.
