What was A. Lincoln?
Or your opinion?
To me as a southerner he was the Amerikan Hitler. He’s responsible for getting us where we are now with the federal government. They run 92% of our lives.
the oval office has been disgraced since ADOLF LINCOLN in 1860
Adolf Lincoln's great legacy includes:
1. Raising taxes before the war that caused the South to pay more than the North.
2. Never freed anyone, particulary a slave.
3. Believed and stated blacks were inferior to whites.
4. Imprisoned thousands, without charges and without a trial, who disagreed with his policies of invading and
subjugating the Southern people.
5. Shut down and destroyed any newspaper that criticized his actions or supported the South in secession.
6. Spent government funds on private ventures, enriching favored people.
7. Arrested delegates in Maryland so they could not vote on secession.
8. Occupied Delaware with the Army so that the state government could not even discuss Southern views.
9. Invaded the South and caused the death of 460,000 Southerners, not to mention his own side.
10. With his war, he single-handedly ended states rights, which empowered the federal government along with the
Supreme court to do whatever they wanted. The republic formed by our Constitution came to an end. If you don't
believe it, all I have to offer is Obamacare, same-sex marriage, no prayer or Bible reading in public.
11. Sieges of Vicksburg, Petersburg, Richmond, Corinth and other confederate cities was exactly what Hitler did in Russia during World War Two (Leningrad, Stalingrad)
12. Anaconda plan of blockade, was a war crime
13. Federal POW camps of Douglas and Elmira killed 30,000 CSA soldiers thru disease and starvation in those two camps and the federal government had daily supplies coming in, while blockading the southern ports which caused the deaths of their own prisoners @ Andersonville where only 12,000 federal soldiers died, but the confederate states are the war criminals.
14. Sherman’s March to sea was exactly what Hitler did in Russia during World War Two.
And then he had the audacity to coin the phrase, "government of the people, by the people and for the people".
Why do we honor this man?
“Virginia did not secede in defense of slavery. Indeed, when Lincoln was inaugurated, March 4, 1861, Virginia was still in the
Union. Only South Carolina, Georgia and the five Gulf states had seceded and created the Confederate States of America.
At the firing on Fort Sumter, April 12-13, 1861, the first shots of the Civil War, Virginia was still inside the Union.
Indeed, there were more slave states in the Union than in the Confederacy. But, on April 15, Lincoln issued a call for 75,000
volunteers from the state militias to march south and crush the new Confederacy.
Two days later, April 17, Virginia seceded rather than provide soldiers or militia to participate in a war on their brethren.
North Carolina, Tennessee and Arkansas followed Virginia out over the same issue. They would not be a party to a war on
Slavery was not the cause of this war. Secession was -- that and Lincoln's determination to drown the nation in blood if
necessary to make the Union whole again.
Nor did Lincoln ever deny it.
In his first inaugural, Lincoln sought to appease the states that had seceded by endorsing a constitutional amendment to
make slavery permanent in the 15 states where it then existed. He even offered to help the Southern states run down fugitive
In 1862, Lincoln wrote Horace Greeley that if he could restore the Union without freeing one slave he would do it. The
Emancipation Proclamation of Jan. 1, 1863, freed only those slaves Lincoln had no power to free -- those still under
Confederate rule. As for slaves in the Union states of Delaware, Maryland, Kentucky and Missouri, they remained the
property of their owners.” Patrick Buchanan
