Brandon Copeland's Priorities

Brandon on the biggest issues we are facing in our beloved State, from Education to Robocalls

Policies that Benefit the People, not the Politicians.

Texas Education

Leftist school boards and administrators are pushing radical ideology into our high school and elementary school classrooms. They are indoctrinating our children with Critical Race Theory, Social-Emotional conditioning, and Transgenderism; and with falling academic standards, it’s clear that our public education system has failed.

We need to give educational freedom back to parents and reanalyze our approach to public education.

I will fight to pass legislation that will give parents more public options without requiring them to uproot their lives to move to a new school district. Along with my Republican colleagues, I will work to introduce legislation that will change how we fund public education. I believe we need resources to follow the students, not the school districts. By doing this, we will give parents greater freedom to send their children to the school of their choice, public or private.

Economic Prosperity

We are living in a moment of rapid technological innovation, but to build an innovative economy that protects consumer privacy, incentivizes entrepreneurs, and sustains small businesses, we need legislative leaders who understand emerging technologies and business. To help create this economy, I will closely analyze how we implement legislation surrounding new, complex technologies such as artificial intelligence and deepfakes, quantum computing, blockchain and cryptocurrency, genome editing, and other emerging technologies.

I aim to make Texas the global leader in innovation and economic freedom by eliminating cumbersome regulations that harm new and small businesses, simplifying the tax code, and reducing property taxes.

Election Integrity

We need trustworthy and verifiable elections. The Texas voting bill passed in September will go into effect before the 2022 midterms and is a colossal first step in securing our elections: increasing penalties for election fraud, requiring ID verification for mail-in ballots, and expanding early voting hours. However, with a rising number of cyberattacks and the advent of quantum computing, our elections are still at risk.

I propose that we create a new Texas Department of Cyber Security that will assist local election officials in identifying and preventing fraudulent activity and cyberattacks. This department will also study how we can implement new technologies such as blockchain and SIKE (Supersingular Isogeny Key Encapsulation) cryptography to create more accessible, secure, and transparent elections.

Border Security

Illegal border crossings are a major root of criminal activity in Texas, particularly for human trafficking and drug smuggling. The Texas border is vast, sharing 1,254 miles with Mexico, so securing it is no easy task.

I support completing the border wall in strategic areas, hiring more border patrol agents, and deploying advanced monitoring technology paired with autonomous, rapid-response drones along the border. Additionally, I propose that we create a new Texas Department of Cyber Security that will support local law enforcement in tackling criminal activity originating from the border. It’s time we stop relying on the Federal Government and solve these problems ourselves.

Protecting Life

Unique, human life begins at conception; at that instant, a new set of DNA is created — unarguably and scientifically a unique genetic fingerprint of a human being. The Texas Heartbeat Act was a significant victory in defense of life, but we still have a long way to go. Once Roe V. Wade is overturned, we must immediately move to end the tragedy of abortion in Texas.

Daylight Savings Time

Daylight savings has outlived its usefulness. Research shows that interruptions to a person's circadian rhythm caused by daylight savings can increase their risk of heart attack and cardiovascular morbidity as well as decrease their productivity and focus. This is directly linked to increases in fatal traffic accidents. I will introduce legislation to eliminate daylight savings in Texas.

Unsolicited Robocalls

Over the past year, Texas residents have received around 6 BILLION unsolicited robocalls, and we have had enough. Clearly, civil penalties and fines are not enough to deter perpetrators. To stop the madness, I will introduce legislation to make funding or originating unsolicited robocalls a criminal offense.

Brandon needs your support to bring these ideas to life in the legislature. Contribute now to help us solve these critical issues and transform Texas for the better!
