TYRANNY…When someone in the Executive Branch says they can kill you without due process……….I’d be a little concerned when they begin comparing the current resident of the White House with the 16th.
He disarmed the Border States, suspended habeas Corpus, declared Marshall Law, engaged the military without Congressional approval, threatened the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, imprisoned almost an entire state legislature, deported his most vocal opponent in Congress, shut down hundreds of newspapers and jailed the editors, made total war on civilians, sat by while his minions set fire to and looted whole towns, freed slaves only where he couldn’t reach them and held them in bondage where he could have set them free, stationed armed guards at polling places to intimidate voters, recruited foreign immigrants to use as cannon fodder, promoted his generals after they executed innocent citizens, started a war to collect taxes on demand of his political and corporate cronies.
The latest research places the number of dead soldiers from his war at 750,000, add to that tens of thousands of Southern civilians and millions maimed or disfigured for life.
His law partner states that, he “coveted honor and was eager for power. He was impatient of any interference that delayed or obstructed his progress."
Sound familiar, about the only thing he didn’t do regularly was play golf and shoot hoops…
