Before you go to the voting booths in November, please read some quotes from one of America's greatest leaders, Abraham Lincoln.

-- You cannot bring prosperity by discouraging thrift.

-- You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.

-- You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

-- You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.

-- You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.

-- You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.

-- You cannot further brotherhood of men by inciting class hatred.

-- You cannot establish security on borrowed money.

-- You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence.

-- You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.

Our current president says he "compares himself to President Lincoln." From what I see, President Obama’s agendas are not even close to President Lincoln’s values. Please think about these things before you vote.
