Hum.... Well Mr Lincoln?
« on: April 04, 2021, 02:19:16 am »
Hum: Who would have made up such ridiculous proclamations? What kind of people were these Independently minded People? Were they plumb loco? Who had ever heard of a Government of the People, By the People and For The People? What type of people had such independent thinking?  Was their forethought sound? Was the words spoken by Mr Lincoln almost a hundred years later spoken in vane? You decide...............

The Gettysburg Address is a speech that U.S. President Abraham Lincoln delivered during the American Civil War at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on the afternoon of November 19, 1863.
"He extolled the sacrifices of those who died at Gettysburg in defense of those principles, and exhorted his listeners to resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain? That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom? And that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

I suppose those words can be traced in one form or another, back to the solid ground of OUR Constitution? The great equalizer of (Its), very own; (American Citizens)?

For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
