What would Abraham Lincoln do?
A couple of quotes for people to consider.
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

"A house divided against itself cannot stand."
Now Abe wasnt perfect. But I cant think of many Presidents who will be as often quoted 150 years after their time as he is.

Many have said they will conquer our country and never fire a shot ,
they will just flood our country with drugs ,propaganda ,lies and mistrust
feed our fears and sit back and watch us self destruct

I think it was Christ who also said a house divided against itself will fall

The USA is about evenly split
rckt148 · 56-60, M
[@854658,Asificair] LOL
It was a legit comment made about the USA ,,I just repeated it
But you are correct ,,its no longer a threat against the USA

I have never seen our country so divided ,it would be interesting to see who actually brings down our house of card

I know who is predicted to rule the entire world and all the nations enforce her will world wide ,but no one cares about that ,,
we are to busy loving or hating our President ,,,LOL

Letters: Nikita Khrushchev's chilling prediction: 'We will take America without firing a shot'

[@9499,rckt148] predictions are interesting, if you make enough of them and they are vague enough they come true! Loool
rckt148 · 56-60, M
[@854658,Asificair] His was merely a threat
I know of a book filled with predictions that not only did they all come true they were on time as well ,,the probability of that happening is astronomical
but of coarse we have skeptics that question the validity ,,

Some say the book was written after the predictions came to pass and with some of them that is true ,
the books /history was written after the fact
But I have a book the predictions are 500 yrs older then Christ ,,
I have a book in my possession that was published in 1921 ,,(a reprint of a much older text obviously)
But since 1929 ,,more of the predictions have accurately come to pass
and on time (a specific time line was given as well )
Said to have been predicted 500 yrs before Christ
but so many are accurately coming to pass for our day as predicted
and no one can accuse this book of being written after the fact
or shot gun predictions
The author even told us ,,if 1 prediction fails to come to pass
we can ignore the whole book and mark it as false prophecy
But so far ,its seems to be accurate ,,I was kind of praying it wouldn't be
some of the things its says are going to happen in the very last days
I pray don't come to pass ,,but I have seen enough to know
maybe I should take it seriously ,even if others don't

Have a good one my friend ,nice seeing you around

True. And many times we have seen the truth of that last quote, but now it’s especially poignant...isn’t it ? 😒
beckyromero · 31-35, F
He'd raise income taxes.

😂
beckyromero · 31-35, F
🙄

On November 16, 1861 President Lincoln signed the Revenue Act, a 3% federal income tax on incomes over $800.

Congress repealed it in 1871.

Back to school, young man.

Lincoln missed a wonderful opportunity. If he had let the south stay seceded (and used the resources wasted on the Civil War to help the slaves escape instead) we would be so much better off today.
whowasthatmaskedman · 61-69, M
[@64306,SmartKat] Its possible. But Americas Greatness arose from a large diverse and complex nation united. China is the next nation with the same potential and the same goals.
SmartKat · 51-55, F
[@621893,whowasthatmaskedman] We don’t HAVE to be great in that way. There are plenty of peaceful, prosperous countries that might not be “great,” but the people are very happy. Why can’t we be one of them?
whowasthatmaskedman · 61-69, M
[@64306,SmartKat] With Luck you may become another major player, rather than a superpower. But Money has become international. Power resides less and less in the "state" and more and more in money. Americans done seem to recognise that yet. And believe me, Trump is SO not in that league.
Fernie · F
we ARE destroying ourselves right now...we have allowed this to happen...we should be out in the streets...do a HONG KONG on him...but too many of us sit and bitch online instead...I have tried to organize a protest...too many don't want to "get involved"...as if the things he does and wants to do will have no impact on their lives.
whowasthatmaskedman · 61-69, M
[@331316,Fernie] I cant argue with a word of what you said. But I think if it matters to you, its time to find a place to live where your family has a future. This is likely to get a lot worse before it gets any better. But it will be a death of a thousand cuts.
Fernie · F
[@621893,whowasthatmaskedman] If that demon gets another term I think many Americans will become IMMIGRANTS fleeing for their lives...hope we are treated better than we treat the immigrants at our border
whowasthatmaskedman · 61-69, M
[@331316,Fernie] I hope so too.😉
MaryJanine · 61-69, F
I can't either - not offhand. But you have to remember, President Lincoln dealt with the problems facing him with the resources available at that time. Perfection can't be achieved with a divided nation.
MaryJanine · 61-69, F
[@621893,whowasthatmaskedman] You have my word on it. You don't have to ask me twice.
SmartKat · 51-55, F
[@621893,whowasthatmaskedman] Not only that, it would give the Trumpanzees exactly the excuse they want to start Civil Wat 2.0.
whowasthatmaskedman · 61-69, M
[@64306,SmartKat] I am not sure anyone wants to fight another civil war. But we dont have to look too far from the Presidents chair to find a deeply religious right wing nut job to take the country down the "Southern" path.
Adaydreambeliever · 51-55, F
Absolutely agree.
