Lincoln reminded a law partner why the Founding Fathers had so carefully assigned war-making power solely to the Congress in his letter to William Hendon in February 15, 1848. He said the following:
|"Kings had always been involving and impoverishing their people in wars, pretending generally, if not always, that the good of the people was the object. This our convention understood to be the most oppressive of all Kingly oppressions; and they resolved so to frame the Constitution that no man should hold the power of bringing this oppression upon us."|
-- Abraham Lincoln
NOTE: The ELITE are on an all out assault on the US Constitution presently. These people are bent on destroying this nation and bringing in their New World Order of tyranny and control. Lincoln said this would happen if MEN DIDN'T FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION and usurped the war powers of Congress. He was right!
It's time to root out those members of Congress (starting in 2008) who have no spine, and who are going along with the undermining of our Constitution. If a Congressman doesn't promise to protect our Constitution, and uphold it's provisions, then they should not be allowed to stay in office. PERIOD!
Lincoln's Warning, and why some think he was assassinated:
|"The money powers prey upon the nation in times of peace, and conspire against it in times of adversity. It is more despotic than monarchy, more insulent than autocracy, more selfish than bureaucracy. I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country.|
Corporations have been enthroned. An era of corruption will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggragated in a few hands, and the Republic is destroyed."
