Yes. Lincoln would be a Democrat today.
Would a republican say this....
"Allow the president to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such a purpose - and you allow him to make war at pleasure."
Of course a republican wouldn't say this today. If a democrat would have said this before the Iraq war the republicans would have verbally destroyed them.
Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?
LOL, Republicans won't even talk to their enemies, much less become friends.
Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.
Oh boy. Did we forget when Gonzo told the Senate that US citizens were not guaranteed Habeas Corpus rights....he even blew the republicans minds on this one.
