On Abraham Lincoln's Birthday


Find some time this weekend to read this speech by Lincoln, made July 9, 1858, when he was running against Stephen Douglas for the Illinois U.S. Senate seat. In times like ours, when another U.S. President is talking about freedom for all humankind, Lincoln's words are as inspiring and timely as ever.

(Hat tip to Power Line for the idea; there, the Big Trunk (Scott Johnson) quotes an excerpt from the same speech.)
