Find Out Your Senator’s U.S. Constitution Freedom Index Rating Here

If you are interested in how your Senators are performing based on their adherence to constitutional principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, national sovereignty, and a traditional foreign policy of avoiding foreign entanglements, this index is a valuable and quick resource.

The Freedom Index is a nationwide educational program of The John Birch Society. Its purpose is to create an informed electorate on how members of Congress are voting. The Freedom Index is nonpartisan; it is not meant to promote any candidate or political party. Bills are selected for their constitutional implications and cost to the taxpayers.

Below are the latest ratings of all U.S. senators as of the beginning of 2023 on how consistently each adhered to “the principles of national sovereignty and individual liberty laid down in the Constitution of the United States.”

They also rate each representative in Congress. The 117th Congress has been rated, but the new 118th Congress will not be rated until later in 2023. Some of the senators listed below may not be senators now, but give you some guidance and information on how your state’s Senate representation is doing.

Some people use this as a guide to determine if their Republican Senators are RINOS (Republican in Name Only). The lower the rating, the more likely they are RINO. For instance, any Republican senator 72% or higher is above average. Note that the Senators in bold earned a 90% or above rating and are considered exemplary in upholding true to the U.S. Constitution.

Democrats), and the average Senate score is 31 percent (60 percent for the Republicans and two percent for the Democrats). Eleven representatives and one senator earned 100 percent.

  1. I voted for Paul LePage. He’s not perfect. Who is? But I think he is a good man, despite press. And I don’t say that about many politicians at all. King was met, and Susan Collins I can’t say much about beyond people making a big deal of her being a woman. I think Stephen King wrote Janet Mills as a gag before the Learned Elders of the Maine Tourist Advisory Board took it serious because they have a clinical condition which prevents them from understanding nuance and metaphor.

  2. That’s a very helpful list. New England is pretty low, no surprise, more’s the pity.
    The John Birch Society, huh? John Birch’s brother Robert (?) gave me a gospel tract when I was struggling with surrendering to the terms of salvation. After I gave up, “lock, stock and barrel,” I told Him, I signed the tract and dated it, July 8, 1971. I still have it; I’m looking at it right now. It’s a good organization and the Left has always hated it.
