Campaign for Liberty gave candidates for State Legislature an opportunity to provide a straight answer to the following questions. The candidates’ answers can be seen below the list of questions. Because the vast majority of states do not include 3rd party candidates in the Primary process, Campaign for Liberty policy is to survey 3rd party candidates for General elections, except in Jungle Primary states.
1. Will you oppose all tax and fee increases?
2. Do you oppose taking federal money to expand Medicaid?
3. Will you oppose any bill that impedes free speech, including any so-called ethics reform bill that would require a citizen organization to divulge its donor or member information?
4. Will you support legislation that would end “policing for profit”, require charges be filed before any assets are seized by law enforcement and ensure that property is returned if charges are dropped or suspect is acquitted?
5. Will you support legislation to end warrantless drone surveillance?
6. Will you support legislation to ban the arming of law enforcement drones?
7. Will you oppose efforts to implement Common Core in Nebraska?
