    (not shooting the messenger) Those of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land's executive, legislature, and judiciary, don't just deserve lack of freedom, they deserve incarceration and more.

    Good quote from the man who had a war to centralize power in Washington.

    Of course, Lincoln is speaking of slavery, which needed to be absolved; however, this quote goes for any freedom for anyone. It goes both ways. Those freedoms in the USA are specifically defined in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. The sitting POTUS wants to "change" those freedoms. I, for one, do not want that change!
     -- J.C., Granbury     
    Slavery hasn't been abolished, it has merely become mandatory for all. While the working conditions have been vastly improved, don't confuse comfort with freedom. The house slave will be treated well as long as he/she doesn't question the commands of the 'massa.'

    We have the freedom to work for our survival and that of our family - what I object to is having to work for someone else who refuses to take on his responsibility. which is not freedom. it's enabling one individual to ride the shoulders of another

    I have had educated Afro-Americans tell me they liked the Confederate Constitution better than the Union's. The Confederate Constitution was going to abolish slavery itself and let locals decide for themselves how they wished to live. Not possible from DC. DC has enslaved us all.
