Happy birthday, Abe!

"...Lincoln was a ruthless dictator and he set the precedent for what is known as the 'Imperial Presidency.' He was the most evil, damaging, aggressive, abominable, and destructive president ever to defy American liberty. Happy birthday, Abe."
-- Karen DeCoster
On this, Abraham Lincoln's birthday, you owe it to yourself to read in its entirety Karen DeCoster's extraordinary essay Beheading the "Great Messiah."

WARNING: If you want to continue to believe everything you learned in grade school, do NOT read DeCoster's piece! Do NOT go here.
