Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Ramsay's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Justice for Texas Taxpayers

  • Excerpt: "The Texas Property Code should be amended to let taxpayers dispute assessments or tax owed when they did not receive actual or fair notice of the assessment or of the tax owed."

Justice for Texas Drivers

  • Excerpt: "Another concern I have is the Texas Tollways system sending Texans bills for driving on roads that were not clearly marked as toll roads. Texans have been billed for hundreds of dollars for driving on toll roads they couldn't tell at the time were toll roads."

Blue Laws

  • Excerpt: "Why does Texas have laws prohibiting the purchase of alcoholic beverages on certain days or hours? Such laws are contrary to the principles of freedom we Americans say the country is all about."

Freedom To Decide What Healthcare You Will Receive

  • Excerpt: "Texas law respects a person's right to decide what health care he or she will receive with one exception: mental health care.... Texas has no laws forcing you to accept treatment for heart disease or cancer or other physical ailments contrary to decisions you made when you were mentally competent."

A Better Way of Selecting Judges

  • Excerpt: "I propose election by the members of the Bar (lawyers) licensed to practice where the judge presides - with provision for nonlawyers to vote in judicial elections if they go through a short qualification process to establish they have enough knowledge to cast an informed vote in a judicial election. This would result in selection of judges by the largest possible group of people who are knowledgeable about the candidates, making it the most democratic way of selecting judges by voters who have a valid basis for selection."

Ending Abusive Pretrial Discovery

  • Excerpt: "It is common for lawyers to serve the opposition with pages of standard pretrial discovery questions that requires the lawyer or paralegal serving them to take only a few minutes to cut and paste from a list but which take a few hours to answer."
