1. Must be Peaceful, Respectful and Fully Law Abiding (#1 Rule of NAGO) – Not to be confused with complying to tyrannical or overreaching law.
2. Supports and Participates in NAGO Calls to Action
PASS/FAIL. Lindstrom has openly supported our efforts in public and typically votes in alignment with our efforts. Individuals affiliated with Lindstrom’s team have made regular appearances to past NAGO events and rallies.
3. Supports Individual Freedoms
PASS/FAIL. Lindstrom was one of the original co-signers for the call for a special session to address medical mandates, however he refused to submit an amendment to broaden the protections for covid-19 exemptions in LB906 because he was “asked not to”. all the while his team purports him as a major proponent of medical freedoms. He supports and votes accordingly on 2A Rights and Pro-Life issues.
4. Supports and Participates with Liberty Minded NE Grassroots Efforts – Team Player
PASS. While Lindstrom has yet to attend a NAGO event, he has shown tremendous support to Nebraska Firearm Owners Association as well as attending Freedom Rally USA and the Republican Liberty Caucus of Nebraska events.
5. Attends Local Meetings
PASS/FAIL. Lindstrom has yet to attend any local city council, state board of education or local school board meetings. He does however regularly attend GOP meetings and events.
6. Presents a Sense of Patriotism
FAIL. In our many interactions with Lindstrom a Sense of Patriotism is not received from him. Husker spirit however, absolutely.
7. Outspoken/Well-spoken on Inalienable Rights
FAIL. Aside from a few posts or emails asking for donations to fight for inalienable rights, Lindstrom stays away from the more controversial issues.
8. Doesn’t Cater to False Narratives
FAIL. Lindstrom often stops just short of truly avoiding catering to False Narratives.
9. Acts/Serves/Talks/Promises in the Best Interest of Others – Type of Leader
PASS/FAIL. While Lindstrom has a voting record that we don’t always agree with, he has always been open to new information and making a different choice after deliberation. Lindstrom, along with 4 other gubernatorial candidates, chose to accept an invitation to a gubernatorial debate hosted by the state, despite having previously accepted to attend a gubernatorial debate with the Beatrice & Gage County Patriots scheduled for the same day long in advance.
10. Prior Involvement/Achievements in Liberty Minded Efforts or Government
FAIL. Lindstrom has repeatedly failed the liberty minded efforts. As of 4.7.2022 Lindstrom has recently voted against the EPIC Consumption which would have allowed the People to vote on the matter, he voted against the Governor’s veto on rental assistance, and received an endorsement from the NSEA alongside Senator Blood.
Summary of Candidate
Brett Lindstrom is the typical politician candidate. He has had positive involvement with NAGO, other grassroots efforts, and local government. Unfortunately, his recent pattern of catering to the liberal agenda has shown his willingness to betray our values and efforts. We do appreciate his ability to work with others as a strong team player, but if you aren’t in his ear for every important piece of legislation there’s little confidence he’ll get it right. Unfortunately, Lindstrom is lacking in the outspoken go-getter attitude we need to preserve our liberties and turn this country around.
Pertinent Evidence & Observations
- Nebraska Farm Bureau Candidate Forum
- Nebraska Governor Race
- Endorsed by NSEA – this is a major disappointment.
