Abraham Lincoln | Thomas J. DiLorenzo [MIRRORED]
Original Description: Interviewed by Brian Lamb on C-SPAN's "Q & A" television program, Dr. DiLorenzo discusses Lincoln, academia, and his two books: "The Real Lincoln" and "Lincoln Unmasked".
My favorite comments:
LibertyPen: "Lincoln is glorified because the victors write the history. Unmasking him is a healthy process for those wondering how individual liberty devolved to its current state."
Rick Earthplay: "I came upon this video by chance, looked interesting, I was shocked, outraged and outright pissed to hear slanderous comments concerning Lincoln. But I continued to listen.... And, I checked into it myself...WOW....what an eye opener. I am now on a mission of re educating myself...this time without the Educational system !! Thanks !!!"
LoneStar TX: "The truth hurts for a lot of northern apologists. NOW...I want to make clear I am proud to be a citizen of the United States and that my native state is part of it. But, it is absolutely ridiculous to believe that the American states, formerly English colonies, would have entered into a new Union with the pre-understanding they could never get out of it under any circumstances. Make absolutely no sense at all, as the underlying premise of the Declaration of Independence, was that government derives its powers ONLY from the consent of the governed."
Julia: "Michie to answer your question. it was about the tariff. Lincoln wanted to keep slavery intact to keep the cash cow south carolina tarriff monies flowing. the economy and profits were based on slavery. that is why in his first address to congress he states he will not touch the institution of slavery but will use force to get his tarriff monies. he believed his invasion to control south carolina would be of short duration... also when states joined the union they reserved right to secession in their,ratification agreemwnts. yes that means,when it's no longer in your interest you can walk. according to the codes Lincoln could only send in troops if federal Marshalls requested for an insurrection.not only was there no I surrection within the state of South Carolina but it's federal Marshalls had resigned so there was no request for federal troops. president buchanan' attorney general said there was nothing that could be done legslly. everything Lincoln did was illegal and unconstitutional."
