Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Stovall's campaign website listed the following issues:[4]

  • Obamacare/Affordable Care Act
Excerpt: "I am surprised that no one discusses its blatant unconstitutionality anymore. Make no mistake: it should be repealed, and if it isn’t, the States should be resolved not to participate, period."
  • Debt Crisis
Excerpt: "We have upwards of 17 trillion dollars in debt, growing larger every day, and we have over 220 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities. The reality of our situation is that there is not enough currency in circulation on planet earth to pay this off, and yet we continue to increase the debt at every opportunity."
  • 2nd Amendment
Excerpt: "The federal Bill of Rights is a restriction on the Federal Government only. The members of the 1st Congress were crystal clear on this. The preamble has meaning. The term "shall not be infringed" has meaning. The men that created, debated, and ratified the federal Bill of Rights wanted it understood that, among other things, the Federal Government had no business anywhere near the issue of Arms."
  • The NSA and The Beauty of No
Excerpt: "Make no mistake: some of the actions of the NSA and of the alphabet soup of other federal agencies are blatantly un-Constitutional. Through regulations and warrantless spying on American citizens, the federal government has gone too far. As Senator from the State of Texas, not only will I consistently vote against such actions, I will work hard to find ways to stop it and hold these agencies accountable to the American people."
  • Illegal Immigration / Amnesty
Excerpt: "Illegal immigration is an issue I've seen here in Texas forever, as a citizen, as an employee, and as an employer. I've worked beside illegal immigrants on the job. As a state bridge contractor for 15 years, I unknowingly hired a few, either directly or through subcontractors. As few people do, I understand this issue from many sides."
