What did leaders of the confederacy think their nation was entitled to?
If I understand your question, the leaders of the confederacy believed states had the right to secede from the Union. The original Constitution made the States supreme in many matters. Also, the Declaration of Independence and Thomas Jefferson's language establishing thirteen "free and independent states" declared the States to be autonomous entities. So, in some quarters it was believed they retained the right to secede. Though this belief was held it had never been tried.

What did the colonial leaders think about the prospect of war with Britain?
Colonial leaders, being from Britain themselves, were both against and for war against the British. The British was the premier superpower nation at the time. With a superior navy and army, there was no one that had the guts to oppose the Brits. But the colonial leaders knew that unless a war was to be fought, there was no chance at secession from the British empire.

What do you think are the areas of improvement for our political leaders?
Not every nation have bad leaders, but there are certain countries where government has to improve and the way leaders are elected has to change to. I come from India, and I believe India is one nation where we strongly require better leadership, anti-corrupt system, transparent democracy and etc. We need credible leaders who will strengthen and reinstate our democracy. Recently my friends were talking about Nav-bharat political movement which has been initiated to Search, Identify, Short-list, Select and Help Elect the right leaders for India. I also viewed their site and was very impressed with their ideas and thats why I too have given my hand in support of the movement. I believe every responsible citizen of India should give their lending hand for the betterment of their Nation.
