At a Feb 12th gathering of Lincoln’s Birthday celebrants, the Governor of Colorado noted that the tensions today are like those of crisis proportions that Abe Lincoln faced in the Civil War era. But (quoting the Governor) “Lincoln never lost his balance, his compassion or his faith in the people. He believed in the system - the system of Democracy which has served us so well over the years. Look at ourselves today. The crisis is as great now as then. There is as much or more division as there was during the Civil War. It is not a geographical division, but one of age, race and beliefs. The greatest threat is not that the radicals are going to win - I am confident there is no real threat in that; the real danger is in a growing feeling of fear and frustration and that somehow we will over-react. In over -reacting, we could lose our liberties and the great inheritance we have.”
Words for thought.
Particularly as those word were spoken by Governor John Love on Feb, 12, 1971. One has to wonder if Biden recognizes the danger his zeal to erase everything Trump from history could have on our liberties or whether that is his intent. One thing is clear, we live in dangerous times and possibly sit at a point of no return if wisdom does not prevail.
