Hello everyone,

My name is Herbert Abernathy. Im the Federalist candidate running for President of the United States in this 1812 election. Little bit about myself, in West Philadelphia born and raised, on the plantation is where I spent most of my days. Chillin out, maxim, relaxin all cool. Farmin tobacco everyday after school, when a couple of guys who were up to some good, started legislation in my neighborhood. I spoke at one demonstration and the people got moved, and said " You moving with your Auntie and Uncle Sam to DC." As you can see, I have all american roots. I enjoy doing American things like eating guacamole, and owning people. I understand the struggles of everyday american life. And I wish to be a voice for the American people. I would like to bring a few matters to your attention. President James Madison and the republican party have done an excellent job of getting our country through some tough times. But there is always room for improvement. The republican party claims to support the natural rights of man, which contradicts their exclusion of women in politics. Yes, the republicans were very successful in getting us through the war of 1812, but this would not have been possible with out you, ladies. Women across the nation pulled together and produced American made goods which allowed us to boycott British goods. They've also proved their political competence by their involvement in public political gatherings. When women were temporarily given the right to vote in New Jersey, they proved yet again they were capable of participating alongside men in politics. As your original governing body, the Federalists party strongly believes that women should be viewed equally in politics. The immoral republicans look down upon women and fail to recognize or appreciate women's essential role in society. If elected, i guarantee to establish Federalists beliefs including equal representation of women in all future political endeavors. This will bring about a new era of change and prosperity that will allow our beautiful country to move forward. I'd like to thank you for your time and I'll see you at the voting polls this fall. Also, before I leave, you might have seen my ads. My oldest negro ran away lately. Curtis Lowe, he's about sixty years old, he's got white and curly hair, plays an old dobro. So you might see him outside an old country store with a fifth of wine strumming his old guitar. He might be the best picker to ever play the blues. So if you see him, be sure to send him back my way. And remember, chicks dig Abernathy.
