Abraham Lincoln Said It

From IAB Archives. Now it has come to the people again; an imperial tyrant, a fascist dictator of a "king" who shreds the Constitution. Re-Posted from 5/25/06

.................

Honest Abe Said It.

"Kings had always been involving and impoverishing their people in wars, pretending generally, if not always, that the good of the people was the object. This, our [1787] Convention understood to be the most oppressive of all Kingly oppressions; and they resolved to so frame the Constitution that no one man should hold the power of bringing this oppression upon us."

Abraham Lincoln
Source: in an 1848 letter to William Herndon

Thanks to Marty at On The Home Front for the quote.

A number of our early presidents speak out from the past in warning to us about much of what is exactly taking place today.

Thank you, Marty, for the link.

Bush senior and members of his administration warned against "rushing to judgment", but his son ignored his own father. When that happened, my blood just ran cold. I knew we were up against a different kind of animal.

WA:Bush heeded Cheney far more than he heeded his father. To Bush, Cheney and their masters, the time was ripe to strike, to fulfill their goals for which they had struggled so long behind the scenes. Daddy Bush was too slow, too cautious, even though he comitted outrageous acts. The stooge Bush Jr., proved to be malleable to a certain extent if handled properly, but his collossal ego, limited intellect, and delusions of grandeur made handling difficult at times.
