Lincoln has been re-invented as a saint - "the victors get to re=write history".
Lincoln cared about ONE thing!!!!!!!!! - preserving the Union (if it meant ingoring the right of states to leave the union and use the articles of confederation to champion his cause so me it! - if it meant the contunuation of slavery - again so be it).
again, as state above in prior post - slavery was fully legal with lincoln's blessing in two Union State (hey its all good as long as they stay in the Union!).
read the emacipation proclomation - refers to "States in rebellion" not the above two slave states not in rebellion!
and so plantation owners owned and beat their slaves with lincoln's affirmation for two more years AFTER said proclamation!
lincoln is overatted asshole.
give me washington/madison over that hypocrite.
Almost all heroes are overrated assholes.
Lenin, Napoleon, Stalin, Mao, Fidel, Mother Theresa, the Marquis de Sade, Hitler, Satan, all are assholes. Yet some people swear by them.
In fact, there is a huge asshole in the little assholes in all of us.
Put someone, anyone, in charge, and the longer you leave them there, the bigger assholes they become. Even if they start out ab ovo as a huge asshole already.
The only way to keep a dictator from becoming an asshole is to call him an asshole constantly and relentlessly. That happened to Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Canada. He was the best prime minister of the times, but he was so hated by the media, that he had no chance becoming worse or even level with than/as how the media portrayed him.
