Many ask, "Why
a Southern Party …?"
Statement from Executive Committee - as we
start our 5th year & 3rd election cycle
As the Southern Party of Georgia struggles through the
trials and tribulations of building a grass roots effort, we are
asked many questions.
"... why a Southern Party of Georgia."
Since virtually all things Southern are considered
politically incorrect, many claim we would achieve an increase in
support if we dropped Southern and chose some other name.
Since few deny that political correctness is running amok
in our State and country, this is a fair question and deserves a
To begin, our long term goal is to Restore
the Principles upon which our country was founded. We are losing
these Founding Principles at an increasing rate and many people
share our concern. Our immediate priority is to begin an effort to
Restore these Principles. Our goal is not Party over Principle, it
is to re-establish our Founding Principles as a viable subject in
today’s political debate.
The politically correct, liberals (or whatever
term you choose) have selected Southern Heritage as their primary
target for their concentrated attacks. Few would disagree with this
fact; even the politically correct openly admit it themselves.
The reason is very simple. Southern Heritage is
one of the foundations of American Liberty. The spirit of freedom and
liberty was first raised to a high pitch by Patrick Henry, a
Southern man. The principle author of the Declaration of
Independence of these united States was Thomas Jefferson, a
Southern man. The leader of the War of Secession from the English
Crown (13 of 17 English Colonies) was George Washington, a Southern
Man. The principle architect of the Constitution was James Madison,
a Southern man. This list could go on and on with the major
contributions of Southern men to our Founding Principles; such as
Randolph, Lee, Mason and Pinckney.
Yes there were other patriots, but the mark of
Southern men is undeniable. It was primarily Southern political ideology that resulted in the
establishment of a Constitutional Republic (united States) of
Republics (sovereign States) instituting a just society. The "Constitution of these United
States" is a contract between the People and their elected
representatives based on the recognition of unalienable rights
(derived from God not man), limited authority, separation of powers,
and trial by jury. These are among the Founding Principles which are
paramount to the protection of Life, Liberty, and Property.
Through the years, ever since our still celebrated Secession from the English Crown, the South has held these
principles more dear, and with stronger conviction than any other
region of the country.
It is for this reason that Southern Heritage is
the primary target of the politically correct. They know that the Southern way of
life must be discredited for them to be successful in re-defining
these united States.
Anyone who claims to believe in our Founding
Principles should not only give this some serious thought, but do
their own research on the subject.
Now, back to the question of: Why the name – Southern Party?
It is very simple. To restore something that has
been, for the most part lost, in this case our Founding Principles, you have to return to
the basics. You have to understand the foundation upon which these
Principles were built.
We do not believe that it is possible to
understand The Principles upon which our country was founded, if you
do not also understand Southern Heritage. Southern Heritage is an
integral part of our history and the foundation on which American
Liberty was created.
You can not understand
American Liberty, the Constitutional Principles and Our Founding
you are so influenced by, or in some cases afraid of, the power of
the politically correct that you join them in discrediting a major
portion of that
foundation. The politically correct understand this and work
diligently to exterminate and discredit Southern Heritage. We do not and will not bend to political correctness.
To whatever extent we receive your support, we are committed to working diligently to stop political
correctness run amok in our country and States.
We have now completed four years of this effort. In some areas
we have accomplished more than we (and many others) expected. The
inverse is also true - in some areas we have fallen short of our
goals as predicted by our doomsayers.
As we begin the new year and our third election cycle we have
developed a plan for this election cycle. It is built upon our few
strengths and designed to improve on our many shortcomings. We hope
that you will find our plan for the next election cycle worthy of
your continued support.
The next article will detail our major accomplishments and
list our shortcomings. We hope that the several hundred who have
supported our effort will conclude that their support was worth
while. We also hope that others who have not supported our effort
to-date will decide that executing this plan for the next election
cycle - now through November, 2006 is worthy of your support and
join the effort.
In summary: "Why A Southern Party?"
Because despite our small size and
politically incorrect name, there is finally a voice for those who
believe in returning to our founding principles and ending the reign
of political correctness run amok in our land.
