My family came to America in the early 1700's and ranged between South Dakota and Michigan. I don't appreciate being painted with the same broad brush you are wielding this morning.

My question to you is this, what if all that you claim is true about Lincoln, what do we do with that info to change todays world into a better place?

What broad brush would that be? Are you a south basher? Cause that's about the only thing I believe I've painted.

And on south bashers, I simply noted the historical fact that they are direct heirs in their argumentation to the man who first espoused the arguments they use. That man was Karl Marx and he did it back in 1861.

My question to you is this, what if all that you claim is true about Lincoln, what do we do with that info to change todays world into a better place? In general terms, we reject extreme unionism, we reject centralized government, we reject tax and spend policies, and we embrace the core concept upon which our country was founded but no longer operates, that of self government.

How we go about doing so? Now that's a trickier question that I don't think anybody has the exact answer to.

But I do think a good start is to figure out what some of the problems are, and problems that go to our philosophical roots are best addressed there as well. By embracing Lincoln at these roots, IMHO we are embracing part of the problem.
