  •  Lincoln and the 14th Amendment (0+ / 0-)

    OK, so many Hollywood has embellished the truth. but isn't it obvious in the movie Lincoln, that Honest Abe deliberately mislead congress on the South's intentions for peace in order to get the 14th Amendment passed.

    I'm not a historian, but it rings true.

    If so, Lincoln did the country an immense favor both for the people of his time and for all time to come. You could even argue that by delaying the end of the war, many many Americans died needlessly. But without it, it is unlikely we would have gotten the 14th Amendment, hallmark of the equality promised in the Declaration of Independence.

    But Benghazi?

    Benghazi???

    The GOP has been rabid waiting for some misstep by Obama to use to try to bring him down.

    2014 is going to be an uphill fight. But we must do everything we can to decimate the GOP as much as possible so they can do as little harm as possible.

    Besides, there's the sequester coming up, and all they can talk about is Benghazi?

    I understand Obama is transforming OFA to be a public advocacy organization. We must do everything possible to help.

    What separates us, divides us, and diminishes the human spirit.
