    The rewriting of history is just stunning here, and the responses prove that the dumbing down of America through public schools is complete. I know you can only shake your head when you read what these morons say. But at the same time, they believe the lies they've been taught with such conviction. If only they had open minds . . .

    Would Abraham Lincoln be a Democrat or a Republican ?

    If he were here today? Watching Barack Obama giving his speech before the Lincoln Monument today, one could not help but think of the Emancipation Proclamation and the fulfillment of the dream of Abraham Lincoln. As he looked upon the first African-American to be elected President, would he not have been proud? Would he have not admitted that this was the political Party to which he belonged -not the Republican Party? George W Bush lost nearly everything for his Party in the eight years of his tragic Presidency. Now it appears that he has lost Abraham Lincoln, also?

    The GOP gave up all claims to "The Party of Lincoln" when they initiated the Southern Strategy, bringing overt racism into politics to levels unseen before.

    2. No Republican today would be for emancipation.
    Shows you just how far the GOP has fallen.

    4. History proves that he would be a Democrat.
    That is what is taught in American History classes. The politcal planks, the entire ideology has flipped since the 1860's.

    5. The Republicans would be for emancipation if it gave them power and money
    You underestimate them.

    The last one really kills me because it's the only reason why the Democrats 'court' the black vote . . for power. Look at Pelosi and Reid right now - they view Obama as the "token" . . they are the power. Who are they kidding.

    Further reinforces my wanting to be a History/Government teacher when I get out of the military. Shit like this needs to be corrected.

    Doubt it. He started a war against those people, I'm sure he's pretty familiar with their type.

    Keep following that ambition, friend. Remember what we talked about; you educate the youth and I'll become a Congressman & represent the Real America.
