Who said this? Do you know?
"I have no purpose to introduce political and social equality between the white and black races . . . . I, as well as Judge Douglas, am in favor of the race to which I belong, having the superior position. I have never said anything to the contrary." (CW, Vol. III, p. 16).
If you guessed Abraham Lincoln you would be right. He was not the antislavery good guy history credits him as being. And the Democrats and Liberals want to hold him on a pedestal. Click here to read more of his political commentary from his days in the public service.
The Liberal ride the coattails of this man? And today's Tea Partiers, home schoolers, NRA members and gun owners are called racist?
This once again proves that the Civil War was not about slavery but about states rights as defined by the Constitution. The Federal Government was sticking it's nose into a place it didn't belong. Slavery was dying out, the shipping lines had already stopped importing slaves, the rouge captains that continued the practice were hunted down, slavery was an unsound economic practice and would not continue to stand on it's own. The emancipation proclamation only freed slaves south of the Mason Dixon line. Slaves North of that line were not truly freed until well after the War was over. This horrendous War marks the true beginning of the over powerful ruling of the United States Government and continues today. There is not one aspect of our lives that is not controlled, regulated or taxed by the Feds. How long will we, as a people , put up with this usurpation of the law of the land, The Constitution for These United States?
