RERfirst -- SPECIAL REPORT: RER LIBERTY SCORECARD RELEASED IN TIME FOR PRIMARY

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) take a more comprehensive look at the critical conservative/liberty votes during a session by legislators.  They may grade both fiscal, social, and other matters of governance.

Replacing Texas Eagle Forum in this year’s scorecard is Texas Values Action.  This organization advocates and activates primarily on social and religious liberty issues.  It seems that Texas Eagle Forum did not produce a scorecard this year.

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 just completed their freshman session, having only served one session, the average is calculated for that single term.

The maximum score is 100.  The closest a legislator’s RER/LSA is to 100, the more liberty-driven they are.

HOW TO USE THE RER/LSA IS VERY SIMPLE

5,000 to 6,000+ bills are filed every Texas legislative session.  On average, about 1500 make it the Governor’s desk.

With this volume of legislation being acted upon every two years, Texans literally have no idea the level of tyranny that’s being imposed on them from legislative session to legislative session.  Keeping track of the special budgetary and appropriations carve outs?  You can forget it.

Perhaps the best way to assist Texans in gauging the true political soul of their representatives is to rely on a grading system very much like parents and educators rely on to measure the performance of students.

What grades would you refuse to allow your children to come home with on their report cards?  Use that same measure with our legislators.

If you wouldn’t let your children come home from school with certain grades, why would you let your legislators come home with those same certain grades?

Find your legislator. Is he or she a stellar student?  Magna Cum Laude, perhaps?  Or, are your legislators flunkies?

You can always find the RER/LSA at the RERammo link.
