Blogs 4 Brownback

Forbes Rates Brownback, Highly

ForbesForbes magazine has published a profile of our man Sam and gives him a big thumbs up. They rated all the Presidential candidates on how conservative or liberal they are in five categories. You can see their results here. Of the GOP candidates, Huckabee, considered by many as the social conservative alternative to Sam Brownback, was deemed the most liberal. The man from Hope hasn’t got a prayer. Eye on 08 has an ordered list.

Although Forbes came to the conclusion that Fred! and McCain are more to the right on foreign trade, Sam Brownback comes out looking pretty good. And unlike Sam, neither Thompson nor McCain bothered to participated in the Forbes survey. They had to construct their data based on “material from the candidate’s public statements, news reports, voting record, Web site and other sources.” So that’s a couple of debates and a survey that the “frontrunners” have balked at. Typical.

In fact, the only other GOP candidate who actually stepped up and participated was Ron Paul. Kudos to Dr. Paul, the white power candidate. Stormfront would be proud.

Here’s a look at the rating of Senator Brownback:

Sam Brownback Forbes Rating

Be sure to read the information about Sam Brownback and his positions on the important issues facing us all on his Forbes page. You’ll find much to agree with. Sam Brownback is indeed the principled, conservative Republican in the running for the GOP nomination. He certainly deserves serious consideration as our next President. He is an honorable man bursting with common sense and integrity. A man of humility. A man for the 21th century and beyond.

Update: Here’s a list of all the candidates in the survey ranked from conservative (50) to liberal (0). Surprisingly, Gore is the most conservative of the Democrats. Not surprisingly, Kookspinach is the furthest left on the planet. Romney’s position is questionable, since it depends on which set of positions he’s taken on any particular issue. He’s held them all!

NOTE: Other than the average, these numbers are estimates. As far as I can tell, Forbes has not released the raw data for this survey.

  1. Yeah Dr. paul really took a beating from the `(Neo)KONSURVATEEVES` over at Forbes..(smirk) who`s prime objective is to import as many third world mexican unskilled illiterate workers as possible, give the 20 million already here voting rights and citizenship, to break the middle class and re-introduce the golden age of serf-dom. Brownback voted FOR their plans so they love him.
    He also votes with the Israeli lobby who gave us great things like the Iraq War, which Perle, Wolfowitz and Feith, were good enough to oversee, but its just a cooincidence they are all Likudnik Jews with US citizenship,… http://www.salon.com/opinion/greenwald/2007/09/21/giuliani_israel/index.html
    and they ARE DESPERATELY TRYING to give us a war with the Israeli`s other irritants, Iran and Syria.

    Evil Ron Paul has too much character to sell out his nation for a few PAC donations and he refused to support turning your grandchildren into third world serfs, giving away your country to illegal aliens, or fighting other nations wars for them, so he obviously isnt a good Neocon. Brownback IS a good eocon as Forbes correctly noted and WILL galdly do all the above.. bend over and Heil Jewliani!

    Brownback however, IS a good NEOCON.

    [Ed Note: Ah yes, teh evil Joooos!]

  2. Sam continues to hold his own, with 1% of G*d-fearing, J*sus-loving Republicans choosing him overwhelmingly!

    Even the demon-o-crat Washington Post can’t deny that Sam is the people’s choice by a runaway 1% of the vote!:

    “Rudolph W. Giuliani leads the race for the GOP presidential nomination, with Republican voters describing him as the field’s strongest leader and most electable candidate in the 2008 general election, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll.

    “But the Republican contest remains unsettled just three months before the first votes will be cast, and in comparison with fellow New York politician Hillary Rodham Clinton, Giuliani is a far less solid front-runner. He has double the support of his nearest rival, but a majority of those who support him do so only “somewhat.” At the same time, his advantages on key attributes are smaller today than they were earlier in the campaign, reflecting continued uncertainty among Republicans about their choices in the presidential race.

    “The poll also marked an interruption in what had been a slow but steady rise in support for Fred D. Thompson. The former senator from Tennessee nearly doubled his support from April to early September as he prepared to enter the race, but he has not picked up additional backing since.

    “Giuliani topped the Republican field with 34 percent, with Thompson at 17 percent and Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) at 12 percent in the new poll. Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney was in fourth with 11 percent but has continued to make strong showings in polls testing the crucial early contests in Iowa and New Hampshire.

    “Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee took 8 percent, his best showing in a Post-ABC poll. Rep. Ron Paul (Tex.) had 3 percent; Rep. Duncan Hunter (Calif.), 2 percent; and Sen. Sam Brownback (Kan.) and Rep. Tom Tancredo (Colo.), 1 percent.”

    Way to go, SAM!

  3. Psycheout, for the life of me I can’t understand NAFTA whatsoever, and I feel that what Forbes calls ‘liberal’ (keep in mind that Bill Clinton started NAFTA) on foreign trade is actually a good thing. I had thought Sam Brownback was a big supporter of CAFTA and NAFTA, but perhaps OnTheIssues was wrong. Anyways, I need to hear your opinion on these, since outsourcing of jobs from hardworking Christians to the atheist Canadians angers me. I had to vote for Peroutka in 2004 because of my opposition to these organizations. Hopefully Brownback will do something about the wetbacks as well, since they would provide the libtards with scores of votes.

  4. They had to construct their data based on “material from the candidate’s public statements, news reports, voting record, Web site and other sources.”

    Good luck trying to figure out where RINOs McCain and Romney stand on pretty much anything – one of them cannot even figure out which religion he belongs to!

    Every day Americans are discovering that Sam Brownback is the safe, dependable choice for US President.

  5. Greetings citizens! And unscientific…er, a faith-based poll (here) has 0 votes for Brownback. I assume you folks can hop over and cancel out the Ron Paul zombies.

    Do it for the Gipper dammit.

  7. It’s interesting how the FOX news and CNN polls show that Ron Paul is rating higher and raising more money than Brownback.

    Vote Ron Paul in ’08.

    Ron Paul is an independent Baptist, according to Conservapedia, Wikipedia, and his own site. Why don’t you go off and fornicate with him? You talk about him so much, yet you are so washed up in moonbat rhetoric that you can’t even bother to see what the man himself says, and you’re making Paul seem like a retard to principled conservatives, when in fact he’s not. (I am confident that he is a Dominionist, like I am.) Also, we would have another reason to execute you. 8)
