On her website, Glass outlines her "Five Point Lone Star Plan," which is as follows:
- TEXAS 9TH AND 10TH AMENDMENT SOVEREIGNTY: "Use nullification and interposition to refuse enforcement by Texas of unconstitutional federal laws like EPA Cap & Trade and Obamacare, and United Nations power grabs like the Law of the Sea Treaty and the Small Arms Disarmament Treaty."
- LOWER TAXES: "Eliminate school property tax. Eliminate franchise tax which acts as a personal income tax. No income tax! Reduce other property taxes and strengthen taxpayer protections such that no one loses their house due to unpaid property taxes."
- LOWER SPENDING: "Reduce government education spending to the bare minimum required by our Texas Constitution. Eliminate state Medicaid expenditures."
- PROTECT OUR BORDER: "Use our Texas State Guard. Limit all government spending on education and healthcare to citizens of Texas and the United States. Border enforcement will reduce demands on our education, health care, and criminal justice systems."
- SUPPORT PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS: "Strengthen eminent domain protections. Oppose boondoggles like the Trans Texas Corridor and other destructive public/private projects."
