Abraham Lincoln: Liar? Racist? Tyrant?!
"Send over 600,000 Americans to their deaths, or destroy the Constitution... why choose? I can do BOTH!"
Abraham Lincoln did not abolish slavery. He had no Constitutional jurisdiction with which to prevent the lawful secession of eleven U.S. States. He was a puppet of "big rail," the prevailing corporate interests of his day.
Abraham Lincoln was perhaps the worst President in the history of the United States of America. Is that hard to believe? Check out some of the following quotes:
#1.) Lincoln cared nothing for enslaved blacks.
If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it....
"If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that."

#2.) Lincoln was a white supremacist.
I never have been in favor of bringing about the equality of the white and black races.
"I am not now, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social or political equality of the white and black races. I am not now nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of Negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor of intermarriages with white people. There is a physical difference between the white and the black races which will forever forbid the two races living together on social or political equality. There must be a position of superior and inferior, and I am in favor of assigning the superior position to the white man."
Source: Abraham Lincoln said this in a speech he delivered to the people of Charleston, Illinois in 1858.

#3.) Lincoln used black soldiers as cannon fodder.
whatever negroes can be got to do as soldiers, leaves just so much less for white soldiers to do...
"I thought that in your struggle for the Union, to whatever extent the negroes should cease helping the enemy, to that extent it weakened the enemy in his resistance to you. Do you think differently? I thought that whatever negroes can be got to do as soldiers, leaves just so much less for white soldiers to do, in saving the Union. Does it appear otherwise to you? But negroes, like other people, act upon motives. Why should they do any thing for us, if we will do nothing for them? If they stake their lives for us, they must be prompted by the strongest motive—even the promise of freedom. And the promise being made, must be kept."
Source: Abraham Lincoln wrote this in a letter to James C. Conkling dated August 26, 1863.
