Praise for Lin­coln and Wash­ing­ton

The Tribune (SLO) - - Opinion -

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
