Yes, President Lincoln and his Republican party did this!
Yes, wise words “in giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free.”
Lincoln didn’t need a speech writer to convey his words nor a poll to decide what was right.
What a great leader was Lincoln.
Wow, how far our country has de-volved per our country’s first Chief Supreme Court Justice.
John Jay was an American statesman, patriot, diplomat, Founding Father of the United States, abolitionist, negotiator and signatory of the Treaty of Paris of 1783, second Governor of New York, and the first Chief Justice of the United States
Were our founders unpatriotic terrorists or noble rebels?
This proclamation speaks to that, if you had any doubt or looking for a solid confirmation.
Furthermore, it speaks boldly to those who falsely claim the founders were not mostly Christians. The evidence is overwhelming that this country was founded upon Judeo Christian principles along with Greek philosophical form of government which was most inspired from above and implemented here.
We do not have a pure democracy in the USA, as some politicians are spouting off to eliminate the Electoral College. It’s in place for an important reason.
The founders set us up as a Republic based upon Democracy. Its a hybrid.
As they cross checked the three branches of power (executive, legislative and judicial), they also did with majority (democracy) and representative (republic) control.
This is also why we have an electoral college to balance out the popular vote. Furthermore, we have 2 groups which make up Congress, the House (based on population of each state) and the Senate (2 per state).
Washington words confirm this Republic.
