I encourage Sam Brownback supporters and doubters alike to explore where he stands on the issues. Now I don’t really know how biased or unbiased this website is (and it is for the year 2002), so take it with a grain of salt and do your own research and all that. But it certainly looks good from my perspective. Some brief highlights:
Sam Brownback on Abortion
Rated 0% by NARAL, indicating a pro-life voting record. (Dec 2003)
Score one for those who care about life.
Sam Brownback on Corporations
Rated 100% by the US COC [Chamber of Commerce], indicating a pro-business voting record. (Dec 2003)
Score one for those who support business, the backbone of our nation.
US Chamber of Commerce Mission: “To advance human progress through an economic, political and social system based on individual freedom, incentive, initiative, opportunity, and responsibility.” Amen.
Sam Brownback on Families & Children
Rated 100% by the Christian Coalition: a pro-family voting record. (Dec 2003)
Score another for families across this country. What’s more important for the future of America than her children?
Sam Brownback on Foreign Policy
Rated 100% by the B4B Team (Mar 2007)
No, really. Read this section. I defy you to disagree with any of the seven items listed. I double dare you!
Sam Brownback on Free Trade
Rated 100% by CATO, indicating a pro-free trade voting record. (Dec 2002)
Sam shoots, he scores! Free trade is what makes this nation great. The CATO institute is in favor of freedom which we all support and defend.
Sam Brownback on Homeland Security
Rated 0% by SANE, indicating a pro-military voting record. (Dec 2003)
SANE is insane. What is wrong with having a pro-troop voting record? Nothing whatsoever. The military keeps us safe and defends our freedom.
Sam Brownback on Tax Reform
Rated 72% by NTU, indicating “Satisfactory” on tax votes. (Dec 2003)
Everyone knows that the National Taxpayers Union is very stingy on their ratings. That Sam Brownback got a “satisfactory” rating is an endorsement in itself.

There’s much more at the link, so check it out. If you have any disagreements with Senator Brownback’s votes (according to the On the Issues website), drop him an email and state your case. I’m sure he will listen to your point of view and will correct the record where the website is in error.
