    My party affiliation does matter, you said my party. I was unaware that a third party in Minnesota held that much power.

    I support the President depending upon the issues. I don't support the NSA. I don't support using force against Syria or Libya when that happened. You should read more often. Usually I just oppose Republican tools.

    Lincoln ran on the "Nation Union" ticket in 1864.

    As Lincoln said it was not the policy of the party. Some were for it and some against it. Lincoln thought at the time that this was the only way Black people could be genuinely free, given the hostility of many Democrats against Black people.

    It may not have been the policy, but it was an idea bandied about amongst some of the members of the GOP back then. I think Lincoln considered it.

    That's a ridiculous partisan hack statement. Lincoln said it because he felt that since the blacks were taken from their homes in Africa, they should be returned to Africa as that was where they were from. This was about re-colonization of blacks to where they had been. It had NOTHING to do with partisanship.

    Oh yes, he definitely considered it, favored it, and spoke to it.

    What do you suppose the Democrats were saying and doing during that period? I gave you a link to a number of things Lincoln said.

    You should learn to be more courteous, by the way.

    No, he did not say that "black people are feral savages", as you claim.
