Re: Comparing now to Lincoln's time
Judge Napolitano happens to be close personal friends with Glenn Beck, a self-proclaimed libertarian. Problem with Beck is that he is a Lincoln Truther and believes that Honest Abe was a hero. They must have interesting dinner conversations. Another Northerner, Thomas Dilorenzo, wrote a very factual account of Lincoln and the War titled, "The Real Lincoln, A New Look at Abraham Lincoln, His Agenda, and an Unnecessary War". The book has a forward written by Dr. Walter E. Williams who said that Lincoln should have correctly been called "The Great Centralizer".
