Well then you should agree that it was a great thing that Lincoln presided over the end of there being "slave" states
I like living in a country that made the effort to eradicate slavery rather than one that took up arms to perpetuate it
Lincoln did no such thing. He was long gone when the Union slave state of Kentucky finally, after a bitter political battle, was forced to give up slavery. And I would prefer to live in a country of free citizens who have the right to live under a government by consent. Not the giant Gulag that Lincoln made out of the United States.
