The Anti-Lincoln

Lately I’ve heard and read Obama’s and Lincoln’s names in the same sentence as if they have more in common than running for president from the same state.  Obama is not Lincoln.  If anything, Obama is the anti-Lincoln.  Lincoln freed the slaves while Obama, like all socialists, wants to enslave the free.

  1. Could it be argued that Lincoln didn’t exactly free the slaves, but transferred ownership from the guys with cotton plantations to every person in the nation? Even in the 1860s, governments demanded taxes and imposed laws, so just as is the case today (to a different degree) everybody was a slave to everybody.

    In that sense, Lincoln didn’t end slavery so much as redistribute it.
