President Lincoln was not a hero. He was scum.
He invented the income tax. To fund a war.
He jailed folks who didn't want to fight his war.
He waged the bloodiest war ever in American history.
He was a manic depressive lunatic who nearly destroyed the country.
And Obama thinks he's the greatest.
Previously wars were fought by volunteers, or in europe, mercenaries.
Previously, there was no notion of income tax.
Yes, I know this sounds looney. The Obama parallel is, as yet, imaginary. But the facts about Lincoln are known. Its not good that a supposed constitutional scholar would admire Lincoln.
Yes, its definately away from the mean to disparage Lincoln. But look it up.
While you still can. Google needs electricity you know :-)
