If Lincoln were alive today, he would be deeply ashamed of today’s GOP. If Lincoln were alive today, he would be seriously considering becoming a Democrat. Reagan switched from Democrat to Republican saying that he didn’t leave the party, the party left him. Lincoln would be considering making the same statement in reverse; he was not leaving the Republican Party, the Party had left him.
Lincoln said, ” You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.” Of course, Lincoln died approximately 65 years before the invention of the Big Lie, and he never experienced big money politics or dreamed of the possibility of the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court. Let us hope in November that Lincoln was right.
