What I found most interesting about this was that some of the most Left-wing politicians did not make the most Liberal list. Bernie Sanders for example, he is a Democratic Socialist but was ranked number 38 most Liberal in the Senate. How about Dennis Kucinich and Alan Grayson in the House, they were ranked number 160 and 170 respectively.

I believe when they say most Liberal and most Conservative it is who is most loyal to their parties. The most Liberal members are the most loyal Democrats while the most Conservative members are the most loyal Republicans.

Ron Paul was the 140 most Conservative member of Congress.
