Campaign themes


Watkins' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

  • Excerpt: "I am seeking office for the Libertarian Party because I have the honor and obligation of doing everything I can to provide the kind of life for my family that any loving father would desire. And it is my firm conviction that the most efficient and moral means of achieving the kind of safe, prosperous and free society that anyone would desire to live under is through decentralizing government and protecting the right of individuals to live their lives according to the convictions of their conscience. Our State of Arkansas has the potential to lead the way in this simple and most beautiful concept."
