Which of Lincolns stances does the modern Republican party champion?

Federal rights over states rights?
the importance of Income taxes?
Union rights over Employer rights?
Fair wages?
Equality for all people under the law?

As far as I can tell, modern Republicans reject all of Lincoln's primary stances.

If you don't think your wages are fair, find another job. you aren't guaranteed anything in life. so please stop already with Lincoln and stay in school

They only call it that when it's convenient to the immediate point. The minute it's not Lincoln turns into Hitler.

It's called Doublethink.

A warm place with no memory.
"Most folks are as happy as they make up their minds to be".
- A. Lincoln

This is the very definition of a Republican today.

Democrats are only as happy as other people's property can make them.
