I agree with you 100% ...EXCEPT....
I am sick of otherwise bright conservatives - even ones as brilliant as Mark Levin - lionizing Lincoln, who WAS a monster and our first statist.
Morrill tariffs, suspending habeas corpus, making the states appendages of the federal government rather than sovereign units. He was a bad, bad guy who really started the slide to statism.
