How To Lose Southern Votes >> The Wrong Answer!

From: Brickhouserun@aol.com

Chuck,

Please share my view:

What do Southerners expect when they keep voting for the same politicians who "put down" their Southern Culture and Legacy? As this quote was shared with me, it needs to be shared will Mitt, Fred, and all politicians looking for a Southern vote: "There’s an entire world out here that you know nothing about or care nothing about. Believe it or not, some of us in that world have an above average vocabulary and we know what the word "DEMAGOGUE" means." Thanks for the quote Bill V.

How To Lose Southern Votes >> The Wrong Answer!

Dear Mitt Romney,

Being a Southerner, most often a Republican, and also a lifelong member of the LDS

[Mormon] church, I had a little more faith in you before your ugly debate answer concerning the historic American Confederate flag. I had no idea that you were so bigoted. I’ve got a question, "how do you expect to win an election by attacking our Southern heritage and legacy"? As you are aware, our American culture and heritage are often under attack by one extremist or another, and we do not need it attacked by a Presidential candidate!

Ex-Senator George Allen was sent a very important message by Southerners / Virginians in the last election. His ugly comments about our historical patriotic flags helped Virginians (our extended family) select Jim Webb, a real leader for Virginians.

We also agree with today’s Virginia Senator James Webb, who also served as Secretary of the Navy and Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Ronald Reagan:

"to tar the sacrifices of the Confederate soldier as simple acts of racism, and reduce the battle flag under which he fought to nothing more than the symbol of a racist heritage, is one of the great blasphemies of our modern age." — Jim Webb (Born Fighting" "How the Scots-Irish Shaped America, New York: Broadway Books, 2004, p. 225.)

Along with ours, I’d guess you lost many Southern votes by your opinion at the debate. In any case, thanks for reviewing my input into your campaign. Please stop attacking the historical American flag of my patriotic American ancestors.

Sincerely,

G. Ashleigh Moody
