Campaign themes


Willems' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Smaller Government

  • Excerpt: "I for one support a Republican form of government, which is mentioned in the Constitution for the United States of America. More Freedom, Less Government in our lives maximizes more prosperity and harmony for the people."

The 2nd Amendment

  • Excerpt: "I too support Article 2 - Section 5 and the 2nd Amendment 100% and will fight against any past, current laws or future legislation that tries to infringe on this divine right to protect ourselves."

Eliminating Income & Property Taxes

  • Excerpt: "I believe eliminating the state income tax and property tax would lessen the burden on Arkansas individuals and families. My proposal would be to replace the state income tax and property tax with a 3 or 4 cent increase on the "Sales Tax" for goods and services."

Right To Own Property

  • Excerpt: "The very foundation of Freedom and Liberty is Property, you can have neither without the other. As it now stands, we are tenants on the property we all dwell upon. This must be changed and this is an issue I will diligently work on to get resolved. Arkansans must own their property free and clear."

Freedom Of Speech

  • Excerpt: "I believe in the 1st Amendment with all of my heart and will fight against any past, current laws or future legislation that hinders any part of this Amendment. The beliefs or the voice of the people should never be silenced in Arkansas or America."
