Brother H. K.,
Note all the infighting that continues to divide the current movement to either (1) Form a new Southern Republic, or (2) Restore the Confederacy of 1861.
When I sent out the original message, I fully expected to see this! DO NOT allow this to dissuade you from running for President. You can see that this opened eyes and began a dialogue from otherwise, silent southerners.
If your timing is correct, you will receive immense publicity by going to New Hampshire and announcing your candidacy for president in 2012. This, in turn, would bring forth financial support from those with money to back political candidates. However, you should request counsel from the SLRC attorneys as how to go forth with your presidential aspirations.
No doubt, a liberal left media would attack you without mercy, but this would play into your favour by letting the southern public know that ONE OF THEIR OWN is running for president. Brother H. K., at the very least, your campaign for president would practically ASSURE you a seat in Congress in your home district. From a congressional seat, you could gather the votes and financially support needed for a strong run for President in 2016. You would serve your Confederate ancestors well by being a congressman from your district. The only way to determine how strong of a candidacy you would command, is to make a timed visit to the New Hampshire pre-primaries, where ALL candidates for president go to test their strength for a white house run. You have one vote already, MINE!
God bless you my brother,
"The Cause of the South is the Cause of us all."
Vice-President Alexander Stephens, Confederate States of America
