Nebraskans......We need your voice
Here's one of the issues that requires our silence to stop....
The Situation: Voter ID Bill
Last Thursday State Senator Charlie Janssen updated our group on his voter ID bill. This week it was to come to the floor for debate but had to be withdrawn because it has been demonized and demonstrated against, scaring the backers that Charlie thought he had. One simple fact is ignored: THERE IS NO LOGICAL REASON TO OBSTRUCT THIS BILL, OTHER THAN PROTECTING VOTER FRAUD.
Charlie and Deb Fisher have put their full support behind it. It's a simple measure:
It simply requires only that voters prove their identity before voting.
It treats every voter equally.
Voters can obtain an ID at no cost.
They can even vote late if necessary to obtain the ID.
It costs the state only $15,000/yr to administer.
There is no group - seniors, minorities, majorities - advantaged or disadvantaged.
Here's what Janssen's office is asking:
Right now only the liberals are being heard. They are demonstrating and manning the phones.
The first 15 Senators below are intimidated and wavering.
Only about half are needed to pass the bill.
But they're backing away because of the pressure.
This bill is going to die if we remain silent.
So what we need is simple. It's time to speak with one voice, as conservative Americans, and be heard. This is not TPP issue; not a 912 issue; not a Freedom Works; not GOP, etc. It's the right thing to do and is long overdue. So it's time to speak.
If you're a member of WinItBack, please phone/email as many of the Senators below as you can. If you know someone in their district, forward the information to as many as you can.
If you are the leader of another conservative group, please pass this to your members and ask them to call and email.
No organization will take credit for the win. What's important is that conservative Nebraskans be heard in large numbers and that we send the liberals a message that they can no longer control by intimidation.
There's also a small group of Senators trying to kill this by amendments or fillabuster - but we aren't going to waste our energy on them. Let's focus on what's right and let the results take care of the opposition.
This is one of our few opportunities to speak in a unified voice. WE NEED TO BE FINISHED BY TUESDAY! SO EMAIL THIS WEEKEND AND CALL FRIDAY, MONDAY or TUESDAY. Janssen's office will give us feedback on how effective we are, so make some noise in Lincoln!
SPEAK WELL - AND LOUD!

We can all make at least one or two phone calls.
Gonna copy this to the NFOA forum, thanks.
I encourage you to support the Nebraska Voter ID bill (LB 239).This bill will treat everyone equally and help protect the democratic process at very little cost or inconvenience to anyone. Thank you for your consideration.
On it like a hobo on a ham sammich!
I would have thought Pirsch would be for this.
Maybe Im thinking of someone else.
