On Slavery, Presidents Share Nothing in Common
Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Barack Obama share several things in common: Both were lawyers; both served in the Illinois legislature; and both were elected president of the United States. When it comes to the issue of slavery, however, the men share nothing in common.
While President Lincoln worked hard to earn a place in modern history books as the man most responsible for ending slavery in the United States, President Obama seems focused upon returning today's Americans -- as well as generations of future Americans -- into a different kind of slavery known as financial bondage.
Unfortunately, the kind of financial bondage President Obama is foisting upon Americans involves trillions of dollars of debt -- more than all previous presidential administrations combined -- and will require far more than "four score and seven years" to pay it off.
