Vote for a Representative who protects the People
and NOT the government!
"Our seaport towns are composed of brick and wood. If they are destroyed we have clay and lumber enough to rebuild them. But if the liberties of our country are destroyed where shall we find the materials to replace them?"

Fancy houses and -bank accounts mean nothing if the People and their properties are not safe. Safe from outside influence but also safe from the government! While it is the government's responsibility, excuse me, duty(!) to protect its citizens, we also have a personal responsibility to protect ourselves, but the government has to lay the foundation that benefits the People!
Texas needs to finish building the border wall to our southern border. This way we force all immigrants and/or asylum seekers to go through an official port of entry. A solution, which we called WEIR Act, is available here. Interestingly no high-ranking politician is interested in it.
Personal responsibility is just as important, as it is our duty to keep us, our loved ones and our properties safe. We have to be vigilant, get prepared and stay prepared, be armed and not be afraid to use force to end a (potentially deadly) threat! We are 100% pro 2A and think that every law-abiding citizen should be armed and also have a machine gun! Or two.
Many 2A and safety related topics can be found here.
Texas should not just foster the relationship with military and law enforcement, but we should consider implementing a force of Minutemen and, thanks to equality, Minutewomen! This way we will have a posse (a force of sworn part time peace officers) to respond in a minute's time to any situation, anywhere (i.e. crime in progress, manhunts, search and rescue, etc.).
We will also hold criminals (more) accountable, no soft-on-crime statues, especially for violent offenders, but then especially for violent offenders convicted of crimes against children and the elderly! As a proponent of the death sentence, I will introduce legislation that includes the use of gallows, guillotines and firing squads as an alternative method of execution, and not just lethal injection, which is a) overpriced and b) in short supply. Gallows, guillotines and firing squads are neither cruel nor unusual punishments.
As your representative I will fight for the safety of the state, but I will also fight to protect the People of Texas from the federal government. If these actions will force me having to go to trial, because the federal government might file a lawsuit against me, then so be it!
Further we will focus-on and protect farming operations, land rights, energy production, infrastructure (specifically roads, and bringing toll roads back into Texas ownership) as well as the Texas water supply. All these things, and many more, contribute to us living in a safe state.
Parental rights are the foundation of raising our children and preparing future generations. Parental rights can never be terminated based of feelings or politics! Parental rights are only to be terminated (temporarily or indefinitely) if a crime by one parent or both of the parents has been committed.
No school should ever give classes, especially sex. explicit ones, without parental consent! If they do, they should face severe charges, the school as well as the individuals being responsible for such actions. The school should also lose funding (which can be earned back)! If schools want to offer such classes, they need to seek parental consent first, just like when our kids go on a field trip and have separate classes (male/female) for such teachings!
Sex. explicit books need to be made inaccessible for minors in school libraries, no exceptions. If parents want to indoctrinate their children with such information they can go online or in a local bookstore and purchase the books on their own. The indoctrination of underaged children in any Texas school will never be okay under my leadership!
Child sex trafficking is real, and it happens every day. Parents need to be aware, form parental groups (like neighborhood watches) and cannot be afraid to take action if such atrocities take place in our state. The law has to protect the People!!!
Further we need to investigate our Foster care program. Too much misconduct is going on there, with recent findings of sex trafficking, drugs, underaged pregnancies, assaults and so on. This is unacceptable and responsible parties need to be held accountable!
Current property tax proposals are up for voting this November (2023), which is good. But they have to be reviewed again going forward, since they are nothing more than a temporary solution.
We will introduce a pay cut of 10% for all elected officials in Texas. With this measure we will have extra funds to focus on important issues, like border security, the funding of our state militia and law enforcement, fixing Foster care, etc.
Further will we introduce a real measure of tax cuts for Texas residents as well as business entities, who have suffered enough through the covid years. These can go from temporary 99% cuts to permanent cuts. The only way we can give the people a real break is to control government spending. Fiscal responsibility is real and needs to be taken seriously!
There will be no more restriction on when you can or cannot go to work, or if you can or cannot open your business when it comes to future covid cases. This is up to the business owners and neither the federal- nor state government (except criminal business dealings of course, let's stay realistic!). I will not ever stand for such tyrannical measures! If these actions on behalf of the People of Texas will end up in court, then so be it. All the way up to SCOTUS!! We live in a Republic, not a dictatorship! No more unlimited emergency powers, ever!!!
While I agree with John Adams, who said that we need a strong federal government, it doesn't have to be big. The same logic applies to state governments, and we need to audit the state, check spending, detect waste, fraud and abuse and take necessary actions to combat this behavior, so that the People can be sure their money is working FOR them and not against them.
Disclaimer: I will absolutely not overpromise anything or make false promises in order to gain financial- or any other kind of support incl. votes. I am a straightforward person, and I believe this is what is needed in a government that is FOR the people. No fake smiles, no fake handshakes, no fake promises! And unlike any other modern-day politician, I will pledge my life, my fortunes and my sacred honor!
School Libraries and underaged children!
