TJ Fabby has thrown his hat into the ring of politics in the state of Texas as a candidate for Representative in House District 10. I had the opportunity to interview him, but this is not your typical Q & A, my goal was to attempt to get to know the man, as well as his policies. We all know that political campaigns are a long string of canned answers to questions and political talking points, so I conducted this interview a little differently. I didn’t go into this with a prepared set of questions, we just talked and talked and talked. After an hour and a half, we finally wrapped it up with plans to talk again once he got settled into his new office in Austin, because that is whereÂ this man belongs.
TJ Fabby is Texan through and through, he loves the state, the people and the independent spirit that is Texas. His love of that independence showed in all of the topics we discussed from taxes, to federal regulation to Constitutional Carry in Texas. His focus is squarely on individual sovereignty and state sovereignty. He believes they are the fundamental foundation from which regain control of the out of control leviathan that is the federal government. One proposal that illustrates this is to replace the state property tax with a consumption tax (sales tax) and we discussed at length the pros and cons. I must say that he stated his case very effectively in that the consumption tax would allow people to actually OWN their property without risk of losing it to the state for failure to pay the taxes, true property ownership.
