Here is the explanation of the NHLA liberty report card ratings as explained by the NHLA:

The Liberty Rating is based on pro-liberty and anti-liberty votes and their impact on the state of New Hampshire.

Pro-liberty votes protect individual freedom of choice and personal responsibility, recognize the superiority of freedom over coercion, respect the citizen's right of self-ownership, promote good government, and recognize the value of voluntary economic decisions.

Anti-liberty votes replace self-governance with interventionist ownership, assume agencies backed by force are superior to voluntary choices backed by personal accountability, and assume a better economy can be designed by a central authority that compels communities to pay for policies people do not willingly support.

The Liberty Rating is the result of hundreds of hours of work by many volunteers who read and analyzed bills, testified before committees, called and wrote their representatives, created spreadsheets and numerous other tasks. We encourage every New Hampshire citizen to learn the facts about exactly how their elected representatives are voting in Concord and to use this tool when these same reps are running for re-election in 2008. While this report card bears the seal of the NHLA board, it is the product of our members' commitment to liberty.
