Abraham Lincoln On The Bush Doctrine

Allow the president to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such a purpose—and you allow him to make war at pleasure.

Abraham Lincoln on America

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter, and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves. – Abraham Lincoln

Update: Okay…..Lincoln owned slaves, but I can still quote him. Oddly enough, in light of that fact, the quote is all the more fitting.
