At a Wednesday press conference in Greenville, SC, former SC Reagan for President Co-Chairman and  legislator Richard T. Hines will address questions many traditional conservative South Carolina citizens are asking as the South Carolina Republican Primary approaches.

"Citizens are disgusted that Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Jeb Bush would try to solicit Governor Haley’s endorsements after she disgracefully removed the Confederate Memorial flag at the Statehouse without her constituents’’ consent." Hines said. "The sentiment I'm hearing is: Better an honest Yankee from New York than RNC approved candidates seeking the support of South Carolina traitors." Hines added:

"This should be a wake up call for the Republican establishment; if they hope to win in November without addressing the concerns of Christian, Southern heritage-honoring citizens, they do so at their peril." Hines concluded:

"Speaking for his many statewide well-wishers in the heritage community of the Palmetto State, I welcome Mr. Trump to South Carolina and look forward to hearing his remarks at the Town Hall Meeting in Columbia.  God bless Southern Heritage and the great State of South Carolina!”

From a recent LETTER TO THE EDITOR, Spartanburg Herald Journal FEBRUARY 14TH, 2016

The proverb “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” still applies. Nikki Haley, SC’s Sikh-Hindu governor, opened a Pandora’s Box of cultural genocide last June against all things Southern. Since her Columbia appearance with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, building, street, and highway names have changed, accompanied by flag bans, monument removals, and efforts to remove Southern names from military bases and high schools.

We are not a confederacy of dunces. The GOP voters of South Carolina recognize a vote for Cruz is a vote for Haley. A vote for Trump is a vote against Haley, Graham, and the Republican establishment.

Everyone should do all in his power to collect and disseminate the truth, in the hope that it may find a place in history and descend to posterity. History is not the relation of campaigns and battles and generals or other individuals, but that which shows the principles for which the South contended and which justified her struggle for those principles.
