America: Love it or Leave It (Lincoln's Birthday Edition)

For those of you who, through error or malice, don't visit the Whiskey Bar daily, a small piece of Lincoln's Passion:
Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a Nation we began by declaring that "all men are created equal, except Negros." When the know-nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal except Negros and foreigners and Catholics." When it comes to this, I shall prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty.

Abraham Lincoln
Letter to Joshua Speed
1855
