Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Crisp's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Budget and the Economy

  • Excerpt: "During the recent 81st Session, the Texas Legislature spent a massive 26% increase over prior sessions, omitting water and infrastructure priorities. It’s time we have a State Representative who will work with other conservatives to return Texas to fiscal responsibility."

Illegal Immigration

  • Excerpt: "Representative Keffer voted for in-state tuition for illegal immigrants. In the last two sessions, bills have been filed to end this drain on our budget. However, entrenched politicians trumped common sense and those bills died in committee before reaching a vote."

Education

  • Excerpt: "Teachers should have the freedom to adjust their lesson plans to fit each student’s individual needs. In addition, Texas schools must reject the “one size fits all” model of the past and acknowledge that not all students will immediately enter a four year university upon graduation. Technical skills and training can immediately prepare young Texans for a successful career."

Securing Our Border

  • Excerpt: "We must put an end to the chaos on our southern border by providing the financial resources and technology needed for Texas law enforcement. Our border is vast and we must deal with it as an issue of national security and Texas’ security."

Sanctity of Life

  • Excerpt: "Despite radical pro-abortion activists, our elected officials must continue to respect the right of each life. We must ensure that no tax dollars provide abortions in Texas."

Second Amendment Rights

  • Excerpt: "I am a proud licensed federal firearm dealer and sportsman. I teach my children about freedom, the Second Amendment, self-defense, and firearm safety. Our Founding Fathers intended for citizens to be able to exercise their natural right to both self-defense and resistance of oppression, wherever it may come from. "

Obamacare and Federal Mandates

  • Excerpt: "[The Affordable Care Act] is the worst kind of legislation for our nation and we face many fights ahead. I will oppose any federal healthcare mandates and fight against any phony “Medicaid expansions.”]</ref>
