Texas Issues

Border Security

We will shut down the border.

Property Tax

We will eliminate property taxes.

Election Integrity

We will expose voter fraud and enforce the law. People are going to jail.

Texas Values

Texas values are under attack.

Social Media Censorship

Freedom of speech is one of the cornerstones of our republic.

Critical Race Theory (CRT)

Critical Race Theory destroys our children.

Power Grid

Texas deserves a Governor who can keep the lights on.

Term Limits

Term limits should be mandated!

Transportation

We shouldn’t pay to drive on our own roads.

Health Freedom

Texans’ medical decisions are theirs and theirs alone.

Ending Abortion

I will fight to end abortion in Texas.

Ending Vehicle Inspections

Vehicle inspections are a waste of Texans’ time and money.

High Speed Rail

I will oppose state support and backing of high speed rail.

Border Security

The federal government will never secure our border; Texas needs a governor who will do it on his own.

As governor I will…

  • Deploy the Texas National Guard to secure the border
  • Finish Trump’s wall
  • Put economic pressure on Mexico
  • End taxpayer subsidies to illegals and mandate E-Verify

The Texas Border is wide open. Our nation is being invaded, and Texas is at the heart of this unprecedented crisis. Thousands of illegal aliens cross into our state each day. It’s an outrage and an affront to our lawful, taxpaying citizens who are forced to spend billions each year on housing, schooling, and medical care for illegal aliens.

We will finish building the wall, starting with construction where there are surges in crossings. We will completely shut down the border until the crisis is solved and eliminate all taxpayer-funded subsidies to illegal aliens.

I am not afraid to take on the federal government. Our citizens will be protected. I will not ask permission.

We will never again surrender control of the boundary with Mexico. We are out of time. There is no chance the federal government will secure the border. The only hope is for the governor to secure the border. If we save Texas, we might save the United States of America.

Property Tax

Property taxes in Texas are far too high—Texans are literally being taxed out of their own homes.

As governor I will…

  • Phase out the property tax system entirely.
  • Allow Texans to vote on a constitutional amendment that puts property taxes on a path to zero.
  • Place a stronger cap on state spending and then prioritize our budget to ensure that public schools are fully funded.

Texans have some of the highest property taxes in the nation, and they go up every year. Property taxes force homeowners to make unending payments, much like rent, to the government or face being kicked off their own property. It’s unacceptable that someone can spend three decades paying off a house and then lose it during retirement due to skyrocketing property taxes.

We will put the broken property tax system on a path to zero. We will work with the legislature to deliver a constitutional amendment that every Texan will vote on. This will ensure that we don’t have temporary reductions that are reversed with future administrations. The biggest part of your tax bill, the public school portion, will be fully removed before I leave office.

The government doesn’t own your home—you do.

We will create unimaginable prosperity for every Texan. We have the solutions and the courage to implement them. Texas will lead once again.

Election Integrity

Texans rightfully don’t have faith in our elections. We all know people cheat in elections.

As governor, I will…

  • Purge voter rolls of illegal aliens, dead people, and other ineligible individuals
  • Require citizens be verified before voters are added to the rolls
  • Investigate and aggressively prosecute voter fraud

Illegal aliens have cast ballots in Texas elections. Laws on the books are not being enforced because we refuse to dedicate the resources necessary to catch and prosecute the cheaters. Criminals can take advantage of inaccurate voter rolls to cast votes on behalf of dead people. In 2020, our governor allowed Democrat-run counties to flagrantly violate state election law while Republican poll watchers were denied access to observe ballot counting in liberal cities. This is unacceptable.

Unlike our current governor, I will never sign an executive order that violates election laws. Only lawful citizens should vote, and cheaters must face harsh punishment.
Texans deserve elections they can trust.

Texas Values

Texas values are under attack.

As governor, I will…

  • Protect innocent life regardless of what the Supreme Court says is allowed
  • End the sexualization of children being done by radicals who promote gender reassignments for minors
  • Ban critical race theory and other Marxist ideologies from infiltrating our classrooms at all levels of public education
  • Punish woke corporations that “cancel” conservatives for our convictions by ending crony taxpayer-funded subsidies and carve-outs

Texans are tired of being forced to fund the left-wing takeover of society. Texas will lead the way in ending taxpayer-funded subsidies to these radical leftists and putting a full stop to their policies.

We will stop bowing down to the federal courts; this is Texas, and we don’t care what John Roberts thinks. He and other sellouts on the Supreme Court have proven that they cannot be trusted to protect our liberty or state sovereignty.

It’s time to restore Texas values.

Social Media Censorship

Freedom of speech is one of the cornerstones of our republic. Censorship is the first step in destroying it.

Conservatives are consistently banned, silenced, and suppressed on social media platforms due to their political viewpoints. This overt discrimination has allowed billionaires in Silicon Valley to determine who has a right to speak and who does not. This suppression serves one purpose and one purpose only: To deprive conservatives of their First Amendment rights.

As governor, I will…

  • Ban social media censorship of conservatives
  • Stop Big Tech from controlling the flow of information and participate in political discrimination
  • Equip Texans who are silenced with legal tools to take Big Tech to court

This issue is not just affecting prominent political figures. Grassroots leaders and everyday conservatives are consistently banned, silenced, and suppressed on social media platforms for their political viewpoints. This ideological discrimination has allowed big tech giants to regulate the stream of information in the new public square.

Rampant censorship of conservatives is a direct attack on our freedom of speech. We must take immediate action to stop this censorship and protect our first amendment rights. Unlike our current leadership, I will ensure every Texan’s voice is heard, never silenced.

Critical Race Theory (CRT)

Critical Race Theory (CRT) is a left-wing, anti-American, Marxist political indoctrination ideology pushed into our classrooms by radicals under the guise of “racial sensitivity.”

As governor, I will…

  • Eliminate CRT from Texas classrooms in every subject and at all levels of public education
  • Appoint citizen-first regents to our state colleges and universities who will ban the practice of CRT at the college level
  • Prohibit all state contractors from mandating any CRT-based racial training programs
  • Prohibit the use of CRT state-sanctioned racial training in any state agency, including the Texas State Guard, where members were recently subjected to Marxist training from their superiors

Read More From Texas Scorecard

CRT has been slowly seeping into Texas schools over the last 40 years. Our children are exposed to harmful indoctrination instructing them to divide themselves by race, class, and gender.

White Texans are being told they are racist just because of the color of their skin. Minority Texans are told they are oppressed and that they will never succeed no matter how hard they work. Neither of these lies should be tolerated in Texas.

CRT is the product of the woke culture that is invisibly destroying our country. It eradicates freedom and diversity of thought and calls upon all individuals to believe the same narrative. We must end this Marxist movement that intends on dividing and destroying our state.

Power Grid

Texas once had a world-class, nationally competitive power grid, but the carelessness of current leadership has ruined it.

As governor, I will…

  • Eliminate state subsidies to unreliable renewable energy
  • Require renewable generators, like other generators, to pay for the cost of acquiring ancillary electricity when they fail to supply their promised electricity to the grid
  • Establish a grid security commission made of Texas entities such as the Texas Division of Emergency Management, State Office of Risk Management, Texas Military Department, Department of Information Resources, and ERCOT
  • Make the Texas Renewable Energy Credit program voluntary

Texas has become too reliant on provenly unreliable green energy sources, such as wind. During the winter storm of February 2021, half of Texas’ wind turbines froze. This caused their share of electricity production to plunge from 42 percent to 8 percent. Over four million Texas families were left without power in dangerously freezing temperatures. This failure, in addition to other disruptions, resulted in billions of economic damage and  150 deaths.

Several months after the storm, Gov. Greg Abbott said new reforms “fixed all the flaws” that caused the widespread outages. But just one week later, the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) issued a power conservation alert urging Texans to limit their electricity use because power demands outpaced supplies. During the following days, Texas families experienced power outages during 95+ degree heat.

It is clear that current leadership is not capable of fixing the problem. We cannot allow this power grid crisis to continue to be improperly addressed when countless lives are at stake.

Term Limits

For decades, Texas lawmakers have avoided addressing the issue of term limits in order to maintain their power, no matter the cost to their constituents.

While states like Florida and South Dakota have enacted term limits, returning power to the hands of the people, Texas has seen power concentrated in the hands of a few. Texas statewide positions, including the governor and the legislature, currently have no term limits.

As the Founding Fathers intended, our government should be led by Texans who step up, serve their state, and then return to their lives. Career politicians only serve one purpose: the furthering and advancement of their career!

As governor, I will…

  • Enact term limits for all elected offices in the Texas government
  • Prevent “politician” from becoming a lifelong career

Many leaders in Texas have been in office for years and even decades. Some have never worked a real job a day in their life and instead have made a career off taxpayer dollars while delivering very few results. Governor Greg Abbott has been in politics, reliant on taxpayer-funded paychecks, for 25 years.

We cannot continue to encourage career politicians by allowing them to remain in office for countless years. Enacting term limits will refocus our leaders on efficiently addressing issues and will hold them accountable for acting on their campaign promises.

Transportation

Toll fines are just a way for private organizations to profit off of blindly taxing Texans.

As governor, I will…

  • Prevent higher toll fees
  • End the increasing road debt left on Texas drivers
  • Stop the private conglomerates from controlling the toll road system

On Governor Greg Abbott’s watch, Texas motorists saw their tolls and fees increase–and on July 1, Texans will see tolls go up yet again. This regressive form of taxation most harms low-income families and people who rely on their cars to get to work every day. Private road conglomerates are profiting off the backs of hardworking Texans without their knowledge. Most Texans are unaware of how prevalent this issue is.

Unlike current leadership, I will take the actions necessary to address this issue. I fought against these very fees and taxes as a State Senator. We must prevent private organizations from taking advantage of everyday, working Texans who rely on their vehicles every day.

Health Freedom

In 2020, Texans experienced unprecedented attacks on their medical liberties, with government and private actors working to implement forced vaccinations and healthcare disclosure requirements.

These decisions were made unilaterally by Gov. Greg Abbott at the behest of so-called “experts” like Dr. Fauci, not through the legislative process.

As governor, I will never allow bureaucrats and insiders to control the citizens of this state and will work to:

  • Ban vaccine passports for all public and private entities in the State of Texas.
  • Prevent Texas employers from hiring or firing workers based on their vaccination status.
  • Prohibit mask mandates.
  • Direct the Texas Department of State Health Services to issue recommendations to Texas governmental entities and businesses that override CDC recommendations.
  • Direct the Texas Department of State Health Services to issue recommendations empowering doctors with greater liberty to treat patients’ medical conditions.
  • Prohibit any attempt to use a citizen’s health status as a condition to maintain or obtain employment, attend school or childcare, or access state services.
  • Reject any attempts to mandate, force, or coerce any medical test, procedure, or product, including vaccines or masks, on Texans.
  • Protect all Texas individuals and businesses from frivolous lawsuits over coronavirus and other associated ailments
  • Fight Obamacare and other federal attempts to implement socialism in Texans’ healthcare.
  • Task the Texas Legislature with reforming CPS to ensure that fit parents and guardians are not targeted for the private medical and educational decisions that they make for their own children.
  • Support a constitutional amendment that solidifies Texans’ unalienable right to refuse vaccinations in all circumstances.

Government lockdowns, mask mandates, and vaccine passports violate the rights of everyday Texans and infringe on their liberties. As governor, I will fight to ensure that Texans’ medical decisions are theirs and theirs alone and that medical information is kept private and free from the wandering eyes and reach of government.

Citizens, not government bureaucrats, know what medical decisions are best for them and their families. The role of government is to protect that liberty rather than legislate against it.

Ending Abortion

Since Greg Abbott was elected Governor of Texas, 350,000 children have been aborted. Again, nearly 350,000 innocent human lives have ended through abortion.

This is unacceptable. It’s time to stop playing around with this issue.

So many Republicans want to say all the right things and pass some sort of “pro-life” bill every two years to campaign on while ignoring the fact that children are losing their lives.

As a Christian, my stance on this issue will never change. As Governor, I will abolish abortion in Texas, and I’m not waiting around for a gutless Supreme Court to give Texas permission to protect our children. As a Senator, I had a 100% pro-life voting record, but honestly, I wish I had done more.

As Governor, I will:

  • Pass legislation to abolish abortion and outlaw
    terminating the life of an unborn child
  • Direct state resources to enforce this bill
    regardless of what the gutless federal courts claim to allow
  • Instruct DPS to arrest all doctors who
    perform abortions in Texas after we pass our abolish abortion legislation

Ending Vehicle Inspections

Studies have demonstrated time and again that vehicle inspections do not improve the safety of motorists. Texas is among less than half of the states in America that still require a yearly vehicle inspection. It’s a meaningless exercise in government waste.

Texas motorists waste time and money every year on pointless vehicle inspections. I am committed to streamlining government and eliminating any unnecessary interactions between Texans and government bureaucracy.

Shrinking the actual size of government starts with evaluating whether the hoops we jump through with the government are necessary for it to perform its rightful roles. As the next governor of Texas, I will champion the elimination of the vehicle inspection and any other government-mandated wasting of Texans’ time or money.

High Speed Rail

The pet projects of foreign companies should never threaten rural Texas farm and ranch land. The proposed Texas Central Railway High-Speed Rail would cut across the rural counties between Dallas and Houston, dividing communities all along the way.

Rural communities would see their land rendered useless by the train itself and the excessive easements included. First responders would have an additional unnecessary obstacle through backroads, all for travelers between Dallas and Houston to have a transit option slower than the average flight.

As Governor, I will…

  • Oppose state support and backing for the “Texas Central Railway” High-Speed Rail project
  • Ensure property owners are protected from future foreign-funded boondoggles
  • Take strong action to prevent Texas taxpayer dollars from ever subsidizing failed public transit pet projects again

I will always put Texans first and protect our rural counties from foreign companies looking to make a buck off their family land. I stand with the people of Ellis, Navarro, Freestone, Limestone, Leon, Robertson, Madison, Brazos, Grimes, Montgomery, and Waller counties. As your Texas Governor, I will oppose high-speed rail.
