Fiscal Conservatism

The Confederalist Party is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the Confederate States.

After both the Whig and Democratic Parties put up two liberals in the 1951 presidential election, conservatives from both party's banded together and formed their own party. In 1957 the party selected Mississippi governor, Fielding Wright as its first presidential nominee and in 1976 George Wallace became the first Confederalist Party president of the Confederate States

Founded by proponents of segregation, the party has grown more liberal in regards to its position on some civil rights issues; however, the party still supports a conservative and/or center-right platform, with further foundations in supply-side fiscal policies and social conservatism. It's currently the second largest political party in the Confederate States.
