Letter: President Lincoln was correct in his beliefs

It’s in the news now that the two major political parties (Democrats and Republicans) are losing a lot of their voter base because they are going independent (a result of a recent poll).

That doesn’t surprise me. I lost faith in both the parties years ago.

Abraham Lincoln said it a long time ago: “You can fool some of the people all the time, and you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.”

Exactly. And that is the beauty of the American people.

And I realize Lincoln was a Republican, but he wasn’t radical.
