If Lincoln were alive today, today's republicans would want him shot.

While the stupidity must be strong with the individual who let this one fly, equally stupid will be the denizons of Mongoloid-Americans who will come in here and take copious sh*ts on this thread defending Lincoln as a stalwart of their party when he couldn't be farther from the derpitudes of insanity that currently infect the GOP.

Zasteva: The word was not chosen to reflect a political affiliation.


I really doubt it. References to "democracy" and "republicanism" abound in American politics, but it's almost unheard of to describe someone as a "democrat" or "republican" and mean it in the generic ideological sense. The dual definitions gives them just enough plausible deniability to get away with it, but the tail-twisting intent of the wording is still plain. It'd be like having a plaque honoring "Woodrow Wilson  Republican" on the grounds that Wilson wasn't a monarchist.

Historical Significance of Frank Lloyd Wright Building at Northeastern Illinois University

The Carruthers Center for Inner City Studies at Northeastern Illinois University is housed in a building that bears historical significance. From time to time, the integrity of a plaque honoring the memory of Abraham Lincoln is questioned. Installed in the building for its opening in 1905, the plaque includes an inscription of the word "democrat" following Abraham Lincoln's name. According to building archives, the word democrat was used because Lincoln was an advocate for democracy-the political or social equality of all people. The word was not chosen to reflect a political affiliation.

No, the Democrat-Republicans dissolved in 1825.

Fart_Machine:I thought Lincoln was a tyrant who fought a war of aggression against the South who were only defending their right to property and state sovereignty?

I think you're mixing up the GOP with southern secessionists.  There's some overlap, but they're not actually the same group, even in the south.

lohphat: ikanreed: Lincoln threw people in jail without trial, or even evidence.(during the war)  I can't say I approve of that then anymore than I did when Bush did it.

The difference is there was a declared war during Lincoln's presidency.


How is that a 'difference'?  Congress declared war in both Afghanistan and Iraq, assuming you're talking about Bush II.  Actually, Desert storm, too, so applies to Bush I as well.

H.R.J. Res. 77, S.J. Res. 23, and H.J. Res. 114, in order of date declared.

//Yes, formal declarations haven't been called "declarations of war" in the west for most of a century, but if you read them and can still call them anything other than that with a straight face you're so dense that you qualify as a neutron star.

Pants full of macaroni!!: No, no, no.  You're only supposed to call a Republican a democrat if they've done something illegal.


Isn't that what makes them a Democrat?
