So, Walter, without the Emancipation Proclamation and Lincoln delivering it, when would slavery have been abolished? Who would have been the alternative Emancipator? Lincoln's early positions on slavery, (if indeed what you have included in your thesis are to be believed and not the ramblings of rabid political opponents), speak to Lincoln's desire to preserve State's Rights by not trampling on them with Federal Statutes. And finally, what is your point? To assassinate Lincoln's character by labeling him as a hypocrite? What does that accomplish? What would a delay in abolishing slavery have meant to "your people"? Could it be that he put the interest of the Nation ahead of his own convictions?
"Carney: Protests Not Directed Against the United States" Actually, he's correct. These are not "protests". These are attacks sovereign American soil and U.S. citizens. But of course you don't want to anger the terrorists with rhetoric like that.
