Question by Michael P in NJ: Should the Republican Party go back to its roots?
I mean its real roots. Abraham Lincoln:
“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”
And all that equality stuff, too.
Or was Lincoln “a Republican in name only”? “Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if Labor had not first existed. Labor is superior to capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.” Yes, Lincoln said that. Was he a “socialist”?

Meghan McCain (who said recently that “don’t ask, don’t tell should be repealed) is the future of whatever is left of the GOP after all the neocon old farts die off.
