Dedicated conservatives founded Nebraska Conservatives for Freedom in 1978 to educate and inform Nebraskans and our elected officials that conservative free enterprise solutions exist to remedy and solve the political, economic, and social problems of our state and nation. In order to achieve these objectives, we monitor the U.S. Congress, Nebraska State Legislature, and local governments and rate our elected officials according to their votes on fiscal, regulatory, and other legislation.
We educate and train our members to responsibly carry out projects in activities of their choice. Our Taxpayer Watchdog activities include President Watch, Congress Watch, Legislative Watch, City/County Watch, Education Monitor I (public schools), Education Monitor II (state universities), and Telecommunications Watch. Other activities are Gun Owners Rights and Illegal Immigration.
Over the years, NCF was affiliated with Citizens for Reagan and Citizens Against Government Waste. Currently, we are affiliated with the National Taxpayers Union, Hands off the Internet, and National Association of Neighborhood Schools.
On January 1, 2000, we changed our organization name to Nebraska Taxpayers for Freedom, to better reflect our emphases and objectives. We are not the usual rigid ideologues so many people associate with fiscal conservatism. We are an easy-going, fun bunch of people. You are always welcome to attend our meetings and activities and participate in our projects.
