Frequently President Barack Hussein Obama will refer to one of America’s much loved presidents, Abraham Lincoln, in his speeches to the electorate. If memory serves me correctly, Obama’s references to Lincoln are always flattering and reflect his admiration for Lincoln’s administration. Unfortunately, the early actions of Obama’s administration fail to live by the words spoken by Lincoln and well referenced in numerous historical documents.
It is shocking that President Obama, who frequently reminds us of his strong educational background, fails to abide by Lincoln’s words and deeds. Here are some highly acknowledged remarks attributed to Honest Abe:
“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.”
Obviously Obama utilizes the words of Lincoln when it supports his personal agenda and totally ignores Lincoln’s sage advice when it does not support his personal ideologies. Thus, I feel that I am correct when I believe that Obama should stop utilizing Lincoln’s words and legacy in vain.
Only a well informed electorate can and will save this Union from the ego driven elitists of the Obama cult and his administration.
