Martin Luther King Jr., Abraham Lincoln, and the Inauguration

President Obama's swearing in with a Martin Luther King, Jr. Bible in one hand and an Abraham Lincoln Bible in the other have just made a mockery of both great men and the Bible itself. President Obama needs to read his history, both men were stanch conservatives and Republicans which he has no like values. Mr. King led many marches so ALL could be treated equal and given the same chances not be given unending handouts. If he could see the 80% of black children out of wedlock birth rate (, he would drop to his knees and cry.

MLK “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”

The direction of the progressives (Democrat and Republican) is destroying our country.

MLK “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

We defiantly have a society of “sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity” extending across the spectrum of our society. Both parties are at fault.

MLK “History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.”

“We are prone to judge success by the index of our salaries or the size of our automobiles rather than by the quality of our service and relationship to mankind.”

“Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.”

“There comes a time when silence is betrayal.”

He was not for social justice, just society giving his people a chance. The silence and turning our American people into leaches instead of laborers is another betrayal of both parties along with not living within our means.

MLK “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”

We need leaders to end the handouts and cut the deficit and the taxes, it won’t be easy but for us to survive as a nation it is required.

Lincoln "Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration."

"Property is the fruit of is a positive good in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence when built."

“Things may come to those who wait…but only the things left by those who hustle.”

It sounds like President Lincoln was for people working so why is President Obama swearing in on what he doesn’t believe? What do some of our other great leaders say?

Andrew Jackson “Any man worth his salt will stick up for what he believes right, but it takes a slightly better man to acknowledge instantly and without reservation that he is in error”

James Garfield “If the power to do hard work is not a skill, it’s the best possible substitute for it.” Gerald Ford “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.”

William Howard Taft “The world is not going to be saved by legislation.”

We are headed that way. I thought President Nixon was the most dictator like president I had ever seen but President Obama has taken that top spot. When will we have a president from either party that is for the United States; I doubt if we will ever have one again.
