    Yeah, right.

    Slaves were taking jobs from white people and Abe freed them to release jobs for poor white people.

    Lincoln was one of the top 5 worst presidents.

    He freed the southern slaves in hopes they would aid the union.

    ive been saying and many historians felt he was a horrible man. read the debates and look at all the stuff he did.

    he didnt have a civil war to free the slaves or were they even a thought into that. they were freed and a rally cry but in one speech he admitted he didnt know what to do with them. just the kind of person he as, i read and heard many evil stories of him.

    He said that slaves should be free, not freed.

    Factual American History rarely aligns with the beliefs we instill in our own minds--with the copious nudging of our earliest public education. Without pun intended: little is as black or white as we'd like it to be. Just try to use some discretion when kicking Abe out of the pantheon.:eusa_angel:

    Besides as long as taxation occurs as it does, we are all victims of being forced to work without compensation by the government. Slavery is here to stay.

    As was Rather Common among Abolitionists of the day. Lincoln was a Racist. He thought slavery was wrong, but he did not think the Races were equal, and his big plan actually involved them leaving this country once free, and returning to Africa.
