Lincoln was a fair minded guy. He wanted no war. He wanted an end to slavery. Plus he was from Kentucky (which isn't either the Northeast or South, but more like the Midwest). Lincoln was a fair-minded guy who wanted change for the better. He believed in equality for blacks and an end to slavery. Radical Republicans only wanted to end slavery. They couldn't give two rats *45rs about blacks. They hated them, much like the Democrats. They were both the same crap honestly.
Lincoln is the only sound Republican in history. All other politicians have been cheap frauds. Lincoln is like the one good libertarian in our country's history.
