According to Andrew Napolitano at Fox News, the Civil War could have been avoided if Abraham Lincoln hadn’t been such a bloodthirsty tightwad and tyrant.
“Slavery was dying a natural death all over the Western world. Instead of allowing it to die or helping it to die or even purchasing the slaves and then freeing them, which would have cost a lot less money than the Civil War cost, Lincoln set about in the most murderous war in American history,” Napolitano said.
I guess the GOP isn’t the Party of Lincoln any more.
Over to you, Jon Stewart.
