Lincoln reflection

It seems to me Lincoln was the ultimate forerunner of the modern Liberal, picking and choosing as he pleased.

He liked Jefferson's "all men are created equal" phrase so much he forged of it the crowbar used a little later by the Progressives to dismantle the Constitution, brick by brick.

He was apparently NOT fond of that other part of Jefferson's famous declaration-you know, the one about when a government doesn't serve the needs of the people it was their right and duty to abolish it and form another better suited.

Yup, I don't think the old tyrant and war criminal read the into Declaration far enough to get to that part.
