Lincoln, good or bad?Submitted by luvdispencer on Sun, 11/25/2012 - 20:50
I'm not sure why Lincoln is talked about so much right now. Obviously there is a movie out, and the Oreily book was talked about, so why the fascination with Lincoln all the sudden? Coincidence so many states have a petition to secede? Anyway, most people here know Lincoln was an abomination on the liberty front, but what about the fiscal side of him? Did he really try to stop the banks with the greenback? And does that make up for all the tyrannical stuff? Just thought I'd get some opinions here because a lot of people are talking about Lincoln right now.
