Lincoln would NOT be welcome in the republican party of today. He believed in the supremacy of the federal government. And for those who like the quote "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.", here's one from Lincoln "Among free men there can be no successful appeal from the ballot to the bullet; and those who take such appeal are sure to lose their cause and pay the costs." - I think Lincoln is more rational than Jefferson. (I think we need to stop idolizing the founders; they were men not gods.) Lincoln rings true. Egypt is a testament to that fact. They had peaceful demonstrations in order just to gain the ballot. Imagine what could have happened in Iraq without our intervention. Especially considering the fact that saddam didn't have the weapons needed to put down such a revolt. The world is full of such ironies, isn't it.
