I am just like you. I am a man from a working class family. I have worked hard all of my life, sometimes just to get by. I understand the struggles of everyday American families. I know the hardships that haunt them, even as they smile each day on the drive to work. I am a father and a son, a husband, and a friend. I am a lifelong Nebraskan. I was born and raised in Omaha, and currently reside in Fremont with my wife, children, and dogs.
I am employed as an insurance investigator, in charge of a team of investigators across 8 states in the Midwest. I have worked in the investigations field for many years and understand what it takes to gather information and create solutions. I work with facts and information as my tools to reach a conclusion. In the course of my work, I have had to learn how to separate feelings and emotions from facts and information. As a father, I have had to show that resolutions are found between two extremes. The answer to many issues is only a handshake away.
With these skills, a drive to support and improve the quality of life of my fellow Nebraskans and the nation, and a loyalty to the people, I will take your voice to Washington and demand that problems be solved.
Quite simply, I want to serve my country. Look, many of us are in the same boat: we were waiting for hope, waiting for change, waiting for drains to open up. Then we realized our leaders are different actors reading the same scripts. Every two or four years, they sell us the same tired song and dance and we eat it up and ask for more. Haven't you seen this story before? Do you really want to continue voting for the "lesser of two evils"?
I am presenting a new script. I want the chance to show you what it looks like when a member of Congress understands that the people really only want what is just, right, and fair. That we demand ACCOUNTABILITY. That we want REAL HONEST LEADERSHIP. In Washington, I will demand that Congress stops kicking the can down the road, and gets back to the task of attending to the budget. Do you want to keep paying inefficient employees for jobs they barely perform? Would you run your company like that? Would you have a job if you spent 15 years doing the bare minimum?
The easiest thing you can do, right now, is to donate. whether it is 10 dollars or 1000, every donation is a step toward history. It is a voice telling government that we area tired of empty promises. We are tired of talking points with no action. Congress is not about job security, it is about service to the people. The House of Representatives is supposed to be about "representing" the people of each district. So, donate, put a sign in your yard, spread the name , and when the time comes, VOTE. Put that check mark next to Dennis Grace, US House of Representatives, Nebraska 1st Congressional District. TOGETHER, we can make Congress truly representative of the people.
As your representative, I will ensure that Congress gets back to work balancing the budget and controlling spending. Congress will be held accountable and will no longer be allowed to spend your hard earned money on their pet projects. Years of kicking the can down the road will come to an end. Vote for Grace.
The AUMF has allowed the president, since 2001, to use the military in any part of the world he sees fit, without first seeking approval from Congress. One of the most important functions of Congress is to limit our commitments to endless wars. Congress has failed. Your current representatives continuously vote to extend the AUMF, making Congress a toothless social club with no power. I will change that. I will draft legislation to end the AUMF. I will help bring our troops home, and ensure they are taken care of on the home front. Vote Grace!
Immigrants have provided the initiative, the drive, the work force, and the ideas to promote change and progress in America for hundreds of years. Now is no different. We recognize the advantages of a culturally diverse nation and welcome people from all walks of life. At the same time, I understand the need to protect our vast border system . A strong border will improve our immigration system and my plan will strengthen the lives of the immigrants already living within our country, as well as those yet to arrive.
Having a Libertarian in office offers Nebraska a true swing vote. No more voting on party lines, against the wills of the people. Votes will now be based on the VOICE of the people. the other two parties must now explain their position instead of earning automatic votes. They must come back to Nebraska to answer to the people. Votes will now go to satisfy the will of my constituents, not party leadership. Vote for Grace. Vote for Nebraska.
For too long our representatives have answered to their parties and not the people they represent. And for too long, we have allowed it. Understand, the enormous amount of power we each have as voters has been squandered every two to four years. We vote for the "lesser of two evils". It's time we actually give a voice to Nebraska and stop voting based on the letter behind the name.
This is a great and beautiful nation. It has a sordid past, but it is our home. We love it, though we know it can be better. But it will never be the home we want when division is being spread from the right and the left. As they spit vile hatred, we are just trying to live our lives. That is truly the American way. Under my representation, Nebraska will see new growth and America will experience its best years yet.
