Suspending our Rights

Even as they quote (or misquote) Lincoln's curtailment of civil liberties during the Civil War to justify the same today, Lincoln's 1863 response to a supporter who urged even stronger measures bears repeating: "I fear you do not fully comprehend the danger of abridging the liberties of the people. Nothing but the very sternest necessity can ever justify it. A government had better go to the very extreme of toleration, than to do aught that could be construed into an interference with, or to jeopardize in any degree, the common rights of its citizens."

Another reminder that though the GOP may claim Lincoln as their own until they're blue in the face, as far he's concerned, they would have worn gray.
