Quote of the day
Abraham Lincoln by Alexander Helser, 1860-crop.jpg  
Slavery, I can not but hate. I hate it because of the monstrous injustice of slavery itself. I hate it because it deprives our republican example of its just influence in the world; enables the enemies of free institutions, with plausibility, to taunt us as hypocrites; causes the real friends of freedom to doubt our sincerity, and especially because it forces so many really good men amongst ourselves into an open war with the very fundamental principles of civil liberty; criticizing the Declaration of Independence, and insisting that there is no right principle of action.
~ Abraham Lincoln ~
