As Barry Goldwater once said “My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.”  There are too many laws, too many regulations, too many taxes!

I want you to have the freedom to live your life without interference from the government. CATO Institute recently ranked Texas 49th out of 50 states in personal freedom.  I know we can do better than that!  Texans are proud and independent. I want to get the government off your back!


In 2020, when panic was spreading faster than a virus itself, all of our government officials, including John Raney, rolled over and accepted tons of unconstitutional restrictions on our freedoms, including the right to work, the right to worship, freedom of assembly and freedom of movement.  We were told we had to cover our faces to enter buildings, children were not allowed to go to school or parks, and everyone faced curfews.  Many lost their jobs or their businesses, and we began to feel the long-term economic effects of the government actions, including skyrocketing prices and shortages of everything from toilet paper to baby formula.

I opposed all the mandates before it was popular to do so, and I’m already against the next mandate!  I will never sell out your basic freedoms in the name of an “emergency.”  I would work to repeal the Texas Disaster Act of 1975 which gave the Governor FAR too much power over the lives of Texas citizens, including the ability to shut down their businesses, churches, and schools.


All consenting adults have the right to conduct themselves as they see fit, as long as they are doing no harm to others.  There are hundreds of state laws limiting the freedom of people to grow, consume, and sell what they want.  The police and courts in Texas waste so much of their time, effort and money pursuing non-violent drug users and people who sell products in demand.  These efforts also lead to more violence against police and ordinary citizens who are caught in the crossfire.


I would support the repeal of all drug and vice laws and end occupational licensing requirements that forbid people to sell what they want and make a living.


Parents should have the choice of how to educate their kids, without interference from the government.  Public schools were started so that communities could pool their resources to make sure all children could be educated, not to send children to government daycare centers where basic skills of reading and writing are lacking while battles are fought over controversial curriculum and violence and bullying thrive.  I support returning money and power to the local communities again and refocusing on the best education possible for our children.



In reality, Texans don’t own their own property, they lease it from the government.  The property tax burden has continued to rise, and the Governor and John Raney brag about “Reform and Transparency” and convoluted “Homestead Exemptions” instead of giving REAL tax relief to hard-working Texans who want to be able to afford to own their own homes as well as saving and investing for their families.  I’ll work to reduce and ultimately repeal the property tax and estate taxes that bury people in a mountain of debt they didn’t earn.
