    Since it is becoming ever more apparent that Mr. Sherman will win our nomination, I ask him again to make a liberal Republican (Ritter for third VP term?) if only to balance the ticket better. This method worked successfully during the Antebellum years in averting the war (for the most part), and would help you get Northerners and Westerners, like myself, on your side. If you seek to drive us away by being hard-nosed and near reactionary, eventually you will be swept aside by history and the party.

    My platform:

    Jim Crow: I am personally against angainst these laws, but if I am elected will allow the states to decide.
    Free Trade: With an industry our size, the only economic effects of tariffs are to make coffee and tea more expensive.
    State Capitalism: We are in our biggest economic boom since after the civil war, but that boom ended and so will this one. When it does, if you elect me as president I will maintain a hardline against unemployment, although I can promise now there will be no state-enforced monopolies.
    Pro Military. I believe America should do her best to engange the rest of the nations in the world in diplomacy and alliances, and when the chips are down honour those alliances. But I don't believe we need to preemptively attack other countries.
    Full citizenship and Pluralism. We were all immigrants once, and we came to escape religious strife. So should the immigrants today.

    Congratulations, Mr. Sherman; represent the South as much as you want, but don't abandon the Republicans to the North of the Mason-Dixon Line, or those far to the west of the Mississippi, in the process...

    I would also like to suggest to Mr. Sherman that he create a 'rainy day' fund for the sole purpose to ensure that, in a time of economic crisis, the government will not have to raise taxes or tariffs, and would be able to instead lower taxes to help the market recover and reorganize more easily. I would also suggest that once the amount deemed suitable by you is reached, that a further, smaller tax cut be made to help promote continued economic growth. I doubt highly that either former President Terrance (which I would like to remind you all led us to the bloodiest war in world history only eight years ago, and forced upon the American people more regulation, higher taxes, forced conscription, the Federal Reserve, and a host of other economic and social ailments that still afflict our society (and consider the fact that he did not go to Congress for war approval, if memory serves me)) or Governor Sullivan, a staunch socialist and follower of the ideals of Joe Hayden and the like, would take my advice seriously, instead favouring higher taxes and more government intervention and artificial growth.

    I have both platforms.

    (Sullivan has submitted himself to the position of junior partner in a Terrance-Sullivan Federal ticket).

    If you're lucky, I can wrest the only device with a word-processor (if anyone else has an iPad, you will know how incredibly painful anything close to work is with the monstrosity I'm writing this on) from my brother's (likely cold and dead) hands, the update will be here tomorrow instead of late on Saturday.

    It is worrisome that the more moderate Federals have now aligned themselves with the radical Progressives (which is rather odd, considering how Sullivan railed against the Federal-Democratic Labour union only four years ago). It seems I am more and more compelled to vote for Mr. Sherman, who will hopefully be more moderate than reactionary.

    Rest assured, Mr. Jarvis, I am not supportive of Jim Crow, only disdainful of vain attempts on the federal government's side to stop it.

    Good; that remark alone reassures me a great deal! I tend to agree with you on such matters, and I was reluctant to use federal power, and am still reluctant to exercise such powers; I am even more concerned that the Federals will go much farther than I, or any sensible person would go.

    So you wont do anything to stop Jim Crow but wont do anything to encourage him? Please enlighten me, I am so confused.

    What I believe he is saying, though I don't want to put words in his mouth, is that he will encourage the end of Jim Crow, but will oppose federal action to mandate its end; a perfectly reasonable view in my opinion (and one I hoped would become more prevalent after a little pressure from the government under yours truly).

    Indeed, reforms may go about quicker with a fellow Southernor in office, rather than a Californian like myself, or a New Englander (right?) like Terrance acting like an outside force, and invader, trying to dismantle a way of life, however wrong it may be. Under Sherman, if he encourages reform (and if he has a Northern running mate), I believe we will make at least some progress. I have no illusions, we are not going to have equality in my lifetime; nor is progress, or any form of success, going to spring from government intervention (save for the slightest, a nudge at best). While I would love to see equality in ten years, or twenty, I do not see that goal as realistic. What I did, in my term, was to protect the most basic of rights, and tried to enforce current laws more stringently, which I hope Mr. Sherman will do as well.
