Subject: RE: BS: Party of Lincoln
Exactly right, Kendall...

That's why Lincoln shouldn't be worshiped as this great president... He had options and choose the ones that ended up being the wrong ones... Slavery was going to end... In a number of ways Jim Crow was worse than slavery becuase of the economic conditions that former slaves suffered plus the relentless hatred and terrporism of the remaining white people in the South... And in saying that I'm sure that someone is going to come along and say that ol' hillbilly supports slavery... Before anyone does I'm going on record of saying "Hell no, I don't support slavery" so don't send that dog out to hunt 'cause he ain't got no hunt in him...
