of the Reform Party of Mississippi
of Respect and Support for the
Confederate Battle Flag

Whereas the Reform Party of Mississippi advocates and pursues the restoration of the Constitutional Republic which our forefathers established; and

Whereas the Federal Government has usurped the authority of the sovereign States, and trampled the God-given rights of the People; and

Whereas our Southern forebears fought with great honor and bravery to defend Constitutional Liberties and the Freedom of the People of Mississippi, against overwhelming forces of Federal tyranny and oppression; and

Whereas the Confederate battle flag, Saint Andrews Cross of blue, trimmed in white, set with thirteen stars, all upon a field of red, was the Standard around which rallied countless brave Patriots of the State of Mississippi, and before which so many laid down their lives in defense of family, freedom, and honor; and

Whereas there have arisen of late persons both malignant and unlearned who would debase our Flag and soil the honor of Patriots long laid to rest for a cause honorable Mississippians still hold dear;


That this Party acknowledges
that Flag stands as a reminder of those qualities of fidelity, loyalty, honor, and bravery in the Hearts of Patriots present and gone, qualities that our nation and our people so desperately need in these days of danger and dissension; and

That this Party promotes that Flag as a Symbol of those values, which we seek to encourage in ourselves, our families and our friends, and recommend to our fellow man; and

That this Party holds high that Flag as a rallying Standard for restoration of Constitutional government, and as a Battle Pennant against Federal tyranny and usurpation; and

That this Party follows gladly in the proud footsteps of our forebears who fought under that Flag, and who knew what it meant to stand up to violence and oppression and wrong at any cost; and

That this Party beseeches Almighty God , that He grant to us both the will and the courage to live and to act in a manner worthy of that Flag and the Patriots who fought for it; and

That this Party objects strongly to all efforts to expunge that Flag from the flag of the State of Mississippi, or to prohibit or discourage its proud display upon our public property and state buildings; and

That this Party opposes vigorously, and dedicates its resources to battle against any attempt to remove that Flag from its position of honor, reverence, and respect in the State of Mississippi.
