Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Says he loves Texas but hates to see "what's happened to it," so he decided to run for governor.
Has never been afraid to say what's on his mind-points to his provocative songs, such as, "They Ain't Making Jews Like Jesus Anymore."
Says his goal has always been to tell the truth, and he believes he'd bring that to the table as governor.
Describes himself as a "dreamer who never sleeps."
Says the best education is just learning from life itself.
Believes that "when your horse dies, you should get off"; once you stop feeling fulfilled in one position, move to another.
When his music career was no longer fulfilling him, he turned to writing; after he tried that, he went into politics.
Believes that as governor, he'd act more as a "guiding shepherd" than a politician.
