Makes Perfect Sense To Me
Whoever said it

The below listed quotes are often attributed to Abraham Lincoln, but some state that they aren't direct quotes from our 16th President.

But like the title of this post says... they all make perfectly good sense to me. Did anyone else notice they are the exact opposite of what the Democratic Party stands for?

1. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

2. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

3. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.

4. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.

5. You cannot lift the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer.

6. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.

7. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

8. You cannot establish sound security on borrowed money.

9. You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man's initiative.

10. You cannot really help men by having the government tax them to do for them what they can and should do for themselves.

And you can also see where the GOP has strayed from these wise axioms.
