Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln is considered by many scholars to have been the best President. He is credited with holding the Union together and leading the North to victory in the Civil War. Further, his actions and beliefs led to the emancipation of African-Americans from the bonds of slavery. Today we have President Trump, trying to right by America and the American people but the criminal democrats aren't going to let him accomplish anything productive! Sad.

What is conservatism? Is it not the adherence to the old and tried against the new and untried?

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today

If I only had an hour to chop down a tree, I would spend the first 45 minutes sharpening my axe

      This year I vowed to read a book on each of the U.S. Presidents. I'm just starting on Harry Truman now. Interesting lens!

      I am reading a biography of Abraham Lincoln written in the late 1800's...I am fascinated by his wife as well, did a lens about her.

      Apparently the Abraham Lincoln haters of the following web site don't like opposing and challenging points of view, so I must take their article and my response elsewhere to their shame. It really is an eye opener, as it reveals that those who hate so do a couple of basic things: They distort facts, or skew them; and they censure comments to their liking.http://www.squidoo.com/abraham-lincolnMy response which was censured out:Jackson once lifted his glass in the midst of antagonists and proclaimed, "The Union! It must be preserved!" and then he walked out. I lift my glass to Abraham Lincoln and say, "To his beloved memory, it must be preserved among all Americans!"Addressing itemized Lincoln criticismshttps://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=exp...

      Great list of books about Lincoln. He was an incredible inspiration and its sometimes hard to separate fact from fiction. As a Houston Personal Injury Lawyer I try to use his example as a model in how my practice treats people and approaches problems. Hard work, values, and values. Mr. President is missed.

      Hi Barbara,Awesome lens! I've bookmarked and will come back to it. Lincoln is such a fascinating individual. He would have commanded quite a few $$$$ were he on the self-help circuit today ;) Thanks for sharing your insight :)Ryan
