And, of course we have all been told about honest Abe and how he freed the slaves.
But the truth is much different.
It was I discovered Thomas DiLorenzo's book, The Real Lincoln and Lincoln Unmasked, that I learned the truth about Abe, and how he was one of our worst presidents.
Not only did he commit many UnConstitutional acts, he was terrible for States rights and the press AND..
he actually did not like blacks and was PRO slavery and was willing to add it to the Constitution:
Thomas DiLorenzo talks are very interesting and enlightening. He is a Libertarian.
From him I learned that the Civil War was over tariffs and State's rights.
There are many reasons why Lincoln was deified. Mostly political, I am sure.
But, the one thing we need to do is to pray to learn the truth. About all things.
