I'm glad TH had the courage to publish this article that challenges the conventional wisdom of Lincoln-worship. In fact, Lincoln was far and away the WORST president. He was the one who converted our confederation of sovereign, independent states into a central-government-run tyranny. Lincoln could have saved 750 thousand lives if he had simply let the South go its own way.

While I am glad he kept us together, I see the real damage done by taking the competitive spirit away from the States and centralizing control in Washington.

But Liberal policy has made it so that they now go to the Carolinas from those places, in reverse migration. Republican control attracting Democrats and Independents, as Texas is.
While they remain in the Liberal Church, they vote for Conservative values with their feet.
Obama mocks people clinging to their Bibles and Guns, while those clinging to his Sect of the Religion of the Left are the source of our troubles. Think Detroit.

Mexicans and others from socialist type countries want our wealth, but not our system of government. They come here for what freedom produces, then they vote for socialism. They don't "get" that they are reproducing the very system they ran away from.
Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" has been a box-office hit and nominated for 12 Academy Awards, including best picture, best director and best actor for Daniel Day-Lewis, who portrayed our 16th president. I haven't seen the movie; therefore, this column is not about the movie but about a man deified by many. My colleague Thomas DiLorenzo, economics professor at Loyola University Maryland, exposed some of the Lincoln myth in his 2006 book, "Lincoln Unmasked." Now comes Joseph Fallon, cultural intelligence analyst and former U.S. Army Intelligence Center instructor, with his new e-book, "Lincoln Uncensored." Fallon's book examines 10 volumes of collected writings and...
