Happy Birthday Mr. President, II

On this, the 200th anniversary of the birth of President Abraham Lincoln, let us not forget his influence.

“What they truly don’t understand is the principle so eloquently stated by Abraham Lincoln: “You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.”

If we ever hear the Democrats quoting that passage by Lincoln and acting like they mean it, then, my friends, we will know that the opposition has really changed.”

I prefer actions over words. So did Lincoln. Speaking once of an unknown lawyer, Lincon said, “He can compress the most words into the smallest ideas of any man I ever met.”
