In Lincoln’s Image

Illinois is famous for its corrupt politicians; we need look no further than the current headlines pertaining to their governor.  And God help us all, Obama is from Illinois.  Of course, he could surprise us all and be the most honest and forthright president we’ve ever had, but that’s not likely.  Obama has surrounded himself with Clintonites, some of which already have their hands dirty from the massacre in Waco and the Oklahoma City Bombing coverup.  Obama is also a socialist and an outspoken advocate for a strong central government.  Both of these ideals require corruption, due to the fact that the Constitution is preventative of socialism and a strong central government.  While comparisons have been made between Obama and FDR, Obama himself has been far more willing to invite comparisons of himself and Lincoln.  This is quite disturbing, because Lincoln was perhaps the most glaring example of how NOT to operate as president.  Lincoln suspended habeas corpus, engaged the South without a war declaration, jailed the Maryland legislature, shut down newspapers in the North that were critical of his war, conscripted soldiers, opposed a constitutional amendment that would have ended slavery, and crafted the Emancipation Proclamation in such a way that it would not free a single slave.  Yet the myth of Lincoln as “Honest Abe” persists, even in the face of the facts.  Likewise, the myth of Obama has glossed over the dull cow eyes of those who voted for him.  He received their worship and praise even though the man hardly had a record, and we barely knew anything about him.  Has has been truly cast in Lincoln’s image, and surely we will erect a monument to him even after he has put us through whatever acts of tyranny he is surely already contemplating.  Remember, the government controls what is put in the textbooks, and even though we’ll know the truth at the present time, history can be whitewashed with alarming efficiency.
