Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Fabby's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

Life

  • Excerpt: "I pledge to do everything in my power to stifle and end this murderous practice in Texas. I am dedicated to the restoration of the right to life for every innocent person, born and unborn."

Gun Rights

  • Excerpt: "A criminal is not restrained by law until they are caught. So if a criminal is willing to break the law to commit a robbery or murder, then they would have no problem breaking the law in order to obtain the gun to do it with. Therefore, I am opposed to ALL gun legislation."

Property Rights & Taxes

  • Excerpt: "I support a broad based sales tax. A consumption tax is the best way to be sure that the tax burden is spread out evenly."

Nullification & States Rights

  • Excerpt: "I support the sovereignty of Texas and I will push for nullification and no-compliance when it comes to unconstitutional federal acts and mandates. This includes regulations from the EPA and the Department of Education."

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "I support less government regulation and I will work to decrease regulation on small businesses. I will also fight any legislation which targets green house gases. Man made global warming is a myth and I will work to expose it for the lie that it is."
