“It is a well-known fact that if Lincoln were alive today, he’d be a Democrat.”
And how do you think that Lincoln’s second inaugural speech would be received by today’s Democrat party? And how would you describe that speech as being anything other than an expression of religious conservativism?
(I quite agree. People need to do their research. And comment rationally. And how rational is it to say “it is a well-know fact….” about what the political preferences of a long-dead man would be today?”)
