I first heard the concept of Libertarianism in the 1990's when I heard an interview with presidential candidate Harry Brown. I liked what he had to say about the principles of the Libertarian Party. I had remained an Non Partisan Independent for as long as I was of age to legally vote. In 2016 I changed my vote to Libertarian because I believed that the time had come to take a stand for liberty.

Maggie Austgen has always been libertarian, but was unfamiliar with the word (and the party) until around 2000. She was a registered independent for most of her life, was hopeful for the GOP in 2011 after seeing Gary Johnson & Ron Paul in an FNC presidential debate. After Trump and Clinton emerged as the frontrunners for 2016, she was finally sick and tired of being sick and tired of the duopoly and joined the Libertarian Party. She has served as secretary for the Douglas County LP chapter since Dec. 2016 and is the current head of the Omaha chapter of Ladies of Liberty Alliance.
