The Movie, "Lincoln"...

"There is nothing new under the sun." -Ecclesiastes 1:9
Warren and I went to see the movie, "Lincoln," yesterday.  It was recommended by a number of people.  I cannot say that I enjoyed the movie, but I did find it ironic in several cases.

1.  Lincoln wanted the 13th Amendment which outlaws slavery and involuntary servitude except as punishment for a crime passed--no matter what.  He states he will say anything and do anything to get it passed.  He lied, he bribed, and he got it passed.  He said it not only affected the present time, but will affect all generations yet unborn.  

The same is true of Obama Care.  Obama wanted it passed.  He lied, he bribed, and he got it passed.  It not only affects us, but generations yet to be born.

2.  It was the democrats who opposed the 13th amendment.  They wanted to keep slavery and saw blacks as inferior and as their property.  Today, the majority of the black population are democrats.  They support the very party that wanted to keep them slaves, that birthed the Ku Klux Klan, and Planned Parenthood who disproportionately abort more black babies than white.  

The blacks are still enslaved to welfare and other meager benefit programs.

There is nothing new under the sun.

I have not seen the movie and not sure I will. I agree with your 2 points and ultimate conclusion ... nothing new!

It is a well done movie with a cast of very good actors. It seems to be historically accurate. It is distressing to see how corrupt our government is and has been.
