I am Jennifer Hicks, and I ran in the primary as a Republican candidate for Nebraska Attorney General. There is no fundraising component to this site, and its purpose is to exist as an extension of the efforts and activism which I have been involved in and which seek a shift away from money-driven politics and toward people-powered politics instead.
Voices of Nebraska seeks to restore to the people the conservative voice that for too long has been suppressed by the left. Many of us feel that we no longer have a voice in our government. Voices of Nebraska is for people who are fed up with a government who is no longer listening. We have been bullied into silence by the media and also by our government.
A silent majority holds no power--but a vocal majority can be unstoppable.
We need to restore our voice and take back our power. Our voices are our greatest defense in protecting our freedom. That is why the left--and also many on the right--have worked so hard to take our voices away. And, in large part, they have been successful in doing so. In addition, we have a government which also has silenced us by plugging their ears every time we try to speak to them.
We will be silent no more.
We have literally begged our elected representatives to listen to us. They aren't listening. And so Voices of Nebraska began as a team of regular, every day Nebraskans who said, "Enough!" and decided to run for office. Now that the primary is over, this website continues on as my blog.
