Why is Abraham Lincoln considered by many to be an amazing President?
There was some stuff he did well, but there are other things I think weren't so fantastic.
All this has happened before, and will happen again.

I belong to an American history book club. It is generally acknowledged that more books have been written about President Lincoln than any other historical figure except for Jesus Christ. That says a lot. And why so? Well, he did save the greatest country in the world from dissolution and that likely says it all.
The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. But our Founding Fathers also demanded that we refrain from foreign entanglements and that we have no standing armies.

He did what he had to do to preserve our union. And he did succeeded, he lived long enough to see the South surrender. For keeping these United States in tact he is one of our greatest presidents.

 Quoting: just_the_truth


There are some that would make the argument he empowered the Federal Government and forcibly removed states' rights, as someone has already posted.

There are others who would say his actions saved the USA.

I think most all of us would agree slavery is patently wrong. Providing freedom to slaves was certainly a necessity. I don't know that the methodology was very tactful. I think the Emancipation Proclamation was used as a war tactic more than anything else.
All this has happened before, and will happen again.

He was a racist against slaves and the South. One of the main reasons for the war was taxes on the cotton the south had to have milled in the northern factories.

 Quoting: Jeff 18145359


Complete and utter bullshit. The Jesuit order of the vatican initiated the US Civil War to transform the United States into a centrally controlled tool of their conquest for global hegemony. Lincoln was forced to make the decisions he did to save the Union, and ultimately, the country. He was then assassinated by them for it, not unlike they did w/ JFK 100 years later. By the way, JFK and Lincoln have ridiculous parallels, look it up.

Judge a man by his own words and actions, not the hearsay of others.


“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.”

Abrham Lincoln at the 4th debate with Stephen Douglass.


No amendment shall be made to the Constitution which will authorize or give Congress the power to abolish or interfere within any state with the domestic institutions thereof, including that a person's held to labor or service by laws of said State."

-Abraham Lincoln-March of 1861


"....You and we are different races. We have between us a broader difference than exists between almost any other two races. Whether it is right or wrong I need not discuss, but this physical difference is a great disadvantage to us both, as I think your race suffer very greatly, many of them by living among us, while ours suffer from your presence. In a word, we suffer on each side. If this be admitted, it affords a reason at least why we should be separated. It is better for both, therefore, to be separated.”

- Abraham Lincoln spoken to black community leaders at the White House

Re: Why is Abraham Lincoln considered by many to be an amazing President?
Abe took a stand for the Constitution. I don't agree with everything he did, but he did it because he thought it was in the best interest of the country. Right or wrong, his intention was to uphold the Constitution, and he did the best he could, under the circumstances. You can disagree with him (as I do in some cases), but he stood up for his beliefs. He was true to his heart. Now we have a president that doesn't stand for anything but personal gratification. He and his puppeteers have used the Constitution for a doormat. I think they are trying to see how far he can push us. They may be close to the limit.

Took a stand? Is that how you justify the same unconstitutional acts that Barry O does?

Don't buy the propaganda you're fed.

As to the OP, Most people consider Abe a great President & CEO because most people are ill informed and aggressive towards views that challenge what they believe to be true.
