Political Blog
For many years, I wrote political and cultural pieces for The Huffington Post, RealClearPolitics, National Review and many others. Here are a few of those pieces.

After my article "Why I Left The Left" came out, I got an invitation to The White House.

Lincoln Lied and Thousands Died
September, 1864
Northern Democrat 1: Can you believe that liar Lincoln? First, he said that we were fighting to preserve the Union.
Then he tells us, with that Emancipation Proclamation, that the war is about eliminating slavery for good.

Northern Democrat 2: All these soldiers that died for a lie…

ND 1: And tell me this hasn’t been the most mismanaged war in history. We had way too few troops at Bull Run.

ND 2: Yeah, Lincoln’s Secretary of State Seward said the war would be over in two months. Jeez. Now, all this time later we’re in this unwinnable quagmire. Lincoln has no plan!

ND 1: And the Europeans hate us…

ND 2: So much for our constitutional freedoms with that unlawful Writ of Habeas Corpus. I’m sure the government is reading the mail sent to me by my Virginia cousin.

ND 1: Wasn’t he the guy that was trying to smuggle Union rifles out of Maryland?

ND 2: Yeah, but you can’t just hold a guy in prison on the flimsy evidence they have. Lincon’s abrogating the Constitution!

ND 1: He didn’t even get Congress to approve the Writ – he just did it.

ND 2: And those Republicans think that Sherman’s capturing of Atlanta is a big deal – but did they capture the capitol, Richmond? No!

ND 1: Even former Democratic President Franklin Pierce said Lincoln is responsible for “all the woe … all the degradation, all the atrocity, all the desolation and ruin” in our country. Lincoln is Ghengis Khan!

ND 2: The Peace Democrats have it right: This war is lost – let’s just give the Confederacy it’s own country and be done with it. We need a timetable for an immediate pull out.

ND 1: Yeah, war is not the answer. Besides, the slaves should fight for their own freedom if they want it so bad.

ND 2: If we don’t win the election in November, we must find a way to impeach Lincoln.

ND 1: Yes! He surely is the worst president in American history.

Quote from "Dishonest Abe Lincoln" taken from pages 156/157 of the book "Selections from Lincoln," Windsor English Classics - Laurel Book Company, Chicago, New York 1921, Harry Hastings, PhD, and Harold W. Thompson, PhD. editors.

"I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery in the States where it exists. I believe I have no right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so."

"Resolved, that the maintenance inviolate of the rights of the States, and expecially the right of each state to order and control its own domestic institutions according to its own judgment exclusively, is essential to that balance of power on which the perfection and endurance of our political fabric depend, and we denounce the lawless invasion by armed force of the soil of any State or Territory, no matter under what pretext, as among the gravest of crimes."

Abraham Lincoln, March 4, 1861.
