Lincoln fought to end slavery, while the democrats, both north and south, fought to keep slavery continuing

Abraham Lincoln, Republican



"The Republican Party, on the contrary [to the Democrats], holds that this government was instituted to secure the blessings of freedom, and that slavery is an unqualified evil. Republicans will oppose in all its length and breadth the modern Democratic idea that slavery is as good as freedom." - Abraham Lincoln

Republicans today would benefit tremendously from appreciating the heritage of our Grand Old Party.

Michael Zak for senator!
