The RagingElephatsRadio.com’s RER Liberty Scorecard Average (RER LSA) is designed to give Texas citizens a more precise way to measure the dedication to liberty of their elected Texas legislators.
RER uses the three most prominent scorecards within Texas politics to calculate the averages. The EmpowerTexans’ (ET) Fiscal Responsibility Index grades the most critical votes on matters of fiscal responsibility, only. Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) and Texas Eagle Forum (TEF) take a more comprehensive look at the critical conservative/liberty votes during a session by legislators.
RER’s formula is to compile the scores of legislators from the three scorecards over their last two legislative sessions and calculate the averages. If a legislator has only served one term, the average is calculated for that single term.
The maximum score is 100. The closest a legislator’s LSA is to 100, the more liberty-oriented/conservative they are.
