Tom Woods Show! Killed it today on Lincoln!

Tom Woods killed it today. He devoted his whole show to Lincoln, in response to an email from a fan. This fan commented on a Facebook post by a Pastor who quoted Lincoln. You can imagine how this Pastor responded. What's less difficult to imagine is how much Tom knocked it out of the park.

Enjoy.

Before I forget again...

Thanks blacklab for posting this.

I hadn't listened to Tom in a few days, so I listened to his last three.

Big fan of Tom Woods

Everyone who loves liberty should listen to his lectures.

We've all been taught revisionist history. His lectures help undo the damage.

Lincoln was absolutely the worst president we ever had!

Anyone else catch it?

@42s:

No, his mind is not for rent
To any government, government

But the full lyrics are:

No, his mind is not for rent
To any god or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren't permanent
But change is

Tom is a very strong

Tom is a very strong Christian.

yes

I caught it a couple weeks ago on his first episode with Michael Brodin of the Tenth Amendment Center. I laughed. It sounded quite quirky to me at first, but now that I've heard it multiple times it sounds smoother. In fact I just went to hear the intro from episode two to hear if it had been tweaked since, re-edited. Nope, same one. The only change remains my acclimation.

Yep

I absolutely caught that. I've actually wondered how much it weighed into his decision about whether to choose a different song for his intro.

Personally, I'm okay with it.

As an aside, I like that he's a big music fan (as he essentially said during his Ian Anderson interview).

I'd love to hear Tom Woods and Tom Scholz of Boston

A lot has happened since this became the title song of Boston's fourth album. It was one of Brad Delp's last recordings with the band. I wonder how political realities they sang of then, what's going on here, and world-wide, have deeply enhanced Scholz's world view?

Here's a recent posting I found that I'd love to hear both Tom's comments on!

Great work, Andrew H! If you are on the DP, please reply if you see this.

We all had to study the civil war and Lincoln in school,

We even had to memorize the Gettysburg address. I never really understood why this war had to happen, and could not be worked out somehow without the loss of a million people. I guess that's the reason for a "department of education",(even that name brings chills) so we can all agree on the same revisionist history.

Killer! thanks

This isn't as energizing as solo Tom, but the previous show interviewing Kevin Gutzman complements the OP quite nicely...

Best Tom Woods Show Ever

I love Tom and Kevin's book, and they really got into the weeds of things at the end here.
