Abraham Lincoln

"You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the
strong. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift. You cannot lift the wage earner up by
pulling the wage payer down. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred. You
cannot build character and courage by taking away people's initiative and independence. You cannot
help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves."

Abraham Lincoln

I too am conservative, but one of the biggest dangers to the cause is the continual misquotes and lack of research leading to this.

Abraham Lincoln's comments

That was really great! Not exactly what socialist Colonel- mean Bernie Sanders preaches as well as liberal Democrats who think the money "pie" is only so big, and if too many are wealthy, there won't be enough pieces left for others.
