So the Libertarian Party of Nebraska has launched a Shirt Fundraiser and we need to sell at least 20 shirt! Below is a picture of the front of the shirt and you can click anywhere in this post to be taken to the Shirt Fundraiser page. Below is from the page:
“This revolution will not be televised! Help the Libertarian Party of Nebraska support the 2014 Libertarian candidates!”
“2014 is a critical year for Libertarians in Nebraska. We MUST have a successful election this year in order to maintain ballot access. In fact, Nebraska Libertarians must do this every 4 years! If we fail to reach our goals, the Libertarian Party of Nebraska will need to petition to regain ballot access in our state. Petitioning is a time consuming and costly effort!
The easiest way for us to maintain ballot access is to ensure that we have at least 5% of the votes in the statewide election in 2014. We have the candidates and a plan in place to make this happen! The Libertarian Party of Nebraska depends entirely on the support from liberty minded individuals like you. Your generous contribution will help carry our message and our values into every community and help elect Libertarian candidates to office.”
Somehow we overlooked John Sterup run for Johnson County Treasurer. I am glad to say we now have him listed and we look forward to seeing him on the ballot for those in Johnson County, Nebraska.
It’s time to Reset the Net…what does this mean to you? Watch the video and even add your name to the list of signatures at Reset the Net.
We are doing what we can on our site, are you doing what you can with your browsing?
Watch and Listen to how the Libertarian candidate for the 2014 Nebraska Governor replies to these debate questions.
Now that filing has completed for 2014 Candidates we have completely updated our list of Nebraskan Libertarian Candidates that are running for an office in the 2014 State and National Elections! As more of them add or change methods of contacting them (web pages and social media) we will be updating the links.
We have also added links for downloading the NEBRASKA VOTER REGISTRATION APPLICATION and information about your right to vote as an ex-felon in the state of Nebraska to the page.

Please note that since we have 2 filing for Representative in Congress in District 2 there will be a Primary for them so do your part and vote in both the Primary and General election! The two filing (in A-Z order) are Andy Shambaugh and Steven Laird.
Nebraska LB 1001 has passed the judiciary committee in a 7-0 vote, so not it’s time to let your state Senator know how you feel about the bill! LB 1001 which is now headed to the floor for debate in the Nebraska Unicameral is in short- “Allow production and marketing of industrial hemp, exempt industrial hemp from the Uniform Controlled Substances Act, and provide powers and duties for the Department of Agriculture”
KOLN-TV in Lincoln has a quick article about it here.
Find a list of all the Nebraska State Senators here.
Libertarian Party of Nebraska’s (LPNE.org) very own Michael Knebel has officially filed for State Treasurer. He is running against the current Republican incumbent and a Democrat. Let’s throw our support behind Michael and see some changes start to happen! Michael currently works for TD Ameritrade, so maybe he knows a few things about finance.
Co-Chair here at WNLP, Ben Backus has officially filed to run against incumbent Secretary of State John Gale. Ben hope to at least gain 5% of the votes, which are needed for any political party to stay on the ballots – per state laws – which is a must for the Nebraska Libertarian Party to continue moving forward! If he wins, Secretary of State is an office he knows he could best handle.
