Praise for Lincoln and Washington
Regarding the editorial, “Sorry, Mr. Lincoln, but your holiday has become obsolete”:
Socialism is not compatible with our free society, and given our free society’s historical successes in liberty and prosperity, history needs to be erased so that socialism can be implemented.
Imagine what could be done with a newspaper to re-educate and revitalize what this great nation’s historical leaders have accomplished, even long after their own times.
This country, and the world would be far less a civilized place without the will and wisdom of our founders. Martin Luther King Jr. and Cesar Chavez would likely not have even had the freedom to speak their minds without the accomplishments of Washington and Lincoln. – Chris Temple, Atascadero
