The single worst president of the United States of America.

If Lincoln were alive today, he’d be tried and executed as a war criminal. But in war the victors always write the history and are never punished for war crimes, no matter how heinous. Only the defeated suffer that fate. He didn’t save our nation, he damn neared destroyed it by launching a war of aggression against the South and setting terrible precedents about how the federal government is run.

Often portrayed as the archetypical abolitionist, he was nothing of the sort. Like many during his time Lincoln viewed Blacks inferior and was very much against them migrating to the North. The Emancipation Proclamation freed no one since it specifically exempted all areas occupied by Union. It was nothing more than a political ploy used at the time to bolster elections.

Much of the things Lincoln did during his time in office have had lasting effects. He is the president who started the federal income tax, the draft, centralized banking, centralized federal government, suspension of constitutional liberties, declaring martial law, invading and starting a war without the consent of Congress, the first to use executive orders, imprisoning without trail thousands of Northern anti-war protesters, censoring all newspapers and communication, confiscating private property, confiscating firearms in the North, use of military tribunals to have mock trails and execute prisoners, hiring foreign mercenaries to wage war on American soil against Americans, and perhaps worst of all, intentional targeting of defenseless civilians in the South.

The War was not over slavery, unless you’re referring to Americans being slaves to the Federal government. Also to say it was fought over state’s rights is an over simplification. They did not want to be ruled by a warmongering tyrant such as Lincoln who had no regard for the Constitution. The Southern states were exercising their constitutional right to secede from the Union. The 10th Amendment of the Constition states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Lincoln was a dicator who had no intention of allowing any state to have any power, only the Federal government. People often do not realize just how much Lincoln changed the US government into the monster it is today.

Lincoln is also the only president in history to have ordered a mass execution and the largest one in US history at that. (Hint: It didn't take place in the South.)
In a speech given in 1858 during the Lincoln-Douglass debates, Abraham Lincoln stated: "I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races (*the crowd applauds*) – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people, and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the black and white races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race…I am not in favor of Negro citizenship."

Shave your pubes and hold them in your hand. Get your mate to give you a blowjob and when you cum on her face throw the trimmed curlies onto your semen soaked partners face and she will be left with a striking resemblance to Abraham Lincoln.
My girlfriend looked very presidential after I gave her an Abraham Lincoln.

One of the greatest presidents ever. Fought for the concept that secession was unconstitutional (as it violated the concept of democracy--if the guy you voted for lost, you have to deal with it) and aided in the disestablishment of the institution of slavery. Though the Hartford Convention did consider secession, it was not the main focus of the agenda, and was political suicide for the Federalists. Moreover, limiting free speech during times of war is not something unique, as it has happened many times since Lincoln's day. It should also be noted, secession is mentioned nowhere in the Constitution as a right, it is mentioned in the Declaration of Independance, but that was not a legal document. Therefore he didn't deny anyone anything unusual.
Samurai Lincoln preserved the Union because he was a secret samurai (HAYA!).

When your girl is watching a movie, and you are masturbating in the other room. You run in and shoot her in the head with your ejaculate screaming "Sic semper tyrannis!"

A sexual act where you do your girl doggy style in the back of a theater balcony, then after you shoot your load all over her ass and back, yell SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS! then jump off the balcony and escape.

Abraham Lincoln created peanut butter and wanted to give credit for it to a black person so the southerners would accept the blacks as their equals. However, before the plan could be put into action, John Wilkes Booth, who "despised legume racial harmony", got wind of the plan and shot Lincoln. 31 years later, the plan was revived by President Grover Cleveland. Cleveland heard of a young black botanist, Carver, who had invented over 300 uses for peanuts, but amazingly, "mashing them up and eating them wasn't one of them". Cleveland constructed an ingenious plan to allow Carver to receive credit by leaving a jar of peanut butter to an unknowing Carver, who received the credit for the invention. There is thought to be a Jar of Truth that has prove that Carver did not invent peanut butter but the Illuminati are dedicated to finding it and destroying it to keep the world from going back into racism.
