Lincoln vs Trump

By January 8, 2017US Politics

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work, which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly 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.

Abraham Lincoln

November 19, 1863

I went to an Ivy League school, I’m very highly educated. I know words, I have the best words. I have — but there’s no better word than stupid. Right? There is none. There is none. There’s no — there’s no — there’s no word like that. So we are going to turn things around. But — and if we have Hillary — I’ve got to tell you. I just saw where for the last week she’s been hitting me really hard with the women card, OK? Really hard. And I had to say OK, that’s enough, that’s enough. And we did a strong number. She’s not going to win. And by the way, I love the concept — I love, love, love having a woman president. Can’t be her. She’s horrible. She’s horrible.

And you know really don’t — I’ll tell you who does not like — yeah, we’ll get Ivanka. Good. Let’s do Ivanka. But I’ll tell you who doesn’t like Hillary are women. Women don’t like Hillary. I see it all the time. And always so theatrical; Mr. Trump said this and that and this. And you just — I actually — I shouldn’t do it. I just have to turn off the television so many times. She just gives me a headache.

Donald Trump

Difficult to imagine these two people are from the same political party. If he were able, Lincoln would be spinning in his grave.

    Billionaire, Ivy League educated president in Trump, consistently appealing to the majority throughout his campaign simply by conversing in the majorities language – basic, white, huff and puff – stuffed with hyperbole .

    The fat, simple, entertainment saturated and to-the-minute distracted western population does not value deep thought or eloquence in a president. It values what its perceives to be change to the status quo, it values a paradigm shift.

    What the population has purchased just like the Apple products, the BMW and the Kardashians is an eight year marketing campaign.
