English: Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth President of the United States. Latviešu: Abrahams Linkolns, sešpadsmitais ASV prezidents. Српски / Srpski: Абрахам Линколн, шеснаести председник Сједињених Америчких Држава. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lincoln was referring to the U.S. government, but U.S. government has never fit such a description. A government of that description with its seat in Washington could not have perished from the earth in 1863 because no such government existed in the first place. What existed was a State, one that Lincoln wanted to be large, permanent and growing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This slogan has been fabulously successful at getting people to identify with, acquiesce in and support the State and its administrative apparatus. Schoolchildren are encouraged to memorize the Address or at least that clause…………………….

 

EXCERPT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
