From the Ft. Lauderdale paper this week.....

"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot build character by taking away people's initiative and independence. You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they should do for themselves."

Abraham Lincoln


My Uncle Peter is wondering how two statesman from Illinois can be so very, very different. I am wondering the same.
