When A Republican was someone to trust

Been immersed in history lately.  You know, stuff gone by, the past, mistakes that, if we study them, we will not make again.  Now, I like history.  Always fascinated me. Of course, belly button lint fascinates me, too.  Anyways... the Civil War has always been a subject of deep interest... it's causes, it's politcal appl,ications, the social change, the deep seated regionalism of the times.  So that is what I have been reading lately..... and that is not what I am thinking about now... but a few words grabbed my attention to day.....

a new birth of freedom --
and that government of the people,
by the people,
for the people,
shall not perish from the earth.

....we need a new birth of freedom.... for people....
our government needs to realize, again...that it serves the people

we need to rededicate ourselves to the words of that President..... and not the corporation that carried his name.

... but what do I know

unfortunately, people like mittsie and the majority of the supreme court think that corporations are people, so and that government of the corporations, by the corporations, and
for the corporations is just fine and dandy.

It's very odd to me, how much conservatives who hate "big government" revere Lincoln.
I mean, after all, isn't he the poster-boy for the crushing hand of the federal government trampling states'rights, what with his "hey you can't have slavery anymore and f*** your secession" actions?
Party of Lincoln, it does not mean what they think it means.
