Happy Tyrants Day

Think twice before you give in to the temptation to worship dead Presidents this weekend. They were all, to a man, flawed human beings. Some more flawed than others.

Ol’ Abe, in particular, was full of flaws, not least of which was his tendency towards Statism and heavy-handed absolutist solutions to relatively easy problems. Let me say this as clearly as I can: Lincoln destroyed the Republic. He went to his (deservedly early but not nearly early enough) grave with the blood of nearly a million of his countrymen on his hands.

Of course, Murkans today celebrate him as our (second) Greatest President.


Happy Presidents Day
