Happy Birthday to Republican President Abraham Lincoln!
As we all know, no longer is this day honored in the many states with a declared holiday. Lesser men have decided to combine Honest Abe’s birthday celebration with the commemoration of George Washington’s birthday. They have renamed it and re-purposed it as President’s Day, which is this coming Monday.
Honest Abe was the very first (and let us fiercely hope not the last) Republican president.
In a recent issue of Imprimis, Professor John Marini of the University of Nevada, Reno, wrote about filmmaker Frank Capra and “his” America. Marini’s article provides us with some pertinent words of wisdom:
. . . when they [U.S. citizens of 1858] look through the old Declaration of Independence they find that those old men [our Founding Fathers] say that “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,” and then they feel that that moral sentiment taught in that day evidences their relation to those men, that it is the father of all moral principles in them, and that they have a right to claim it as though they were blood of the blood, and flesh of the flesh of the men who wrote that Declaration, and so they are. That is the electric cord in that Declaration that links the hearts of patriotic and liberty-loving men together, that will link those patriotic hearts as long as the love of freedom exists in the minds of men throughout the world. Abraham Lincoln

Today is notable for two reasons: It’s Tax Day and it’s also the 150th anniversary of the death by assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. Whether there’s a symbolic nexus between those two distinctions, I leave it up to readers to decide.

Today is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. At one time, this president was honored in many states with a declared holiday on the day of his birth. Children were excused from school. Many places of businesses gave their employees the day off. Then that holiday was combined with the commemoration of George Washington’s birthday and renamed President’s Day.
Contrary to what many falsely believe, Abraham Lincoln was a Republican. Honest Abe was the very first Republican president!
This weekend, we remember those who gave their last full measure of devotion so that we might remain free and continue to enjoy the blessings of the greatest Republic the world has ever known:
Memorial Day, which is observed on the last Monday of May, commemorates the men and women who died while in the military service. In observance of the holiday, many people visit cemeteries and memorials, and volunteers often place American flags on each grave site at national cemeteries. A national moment of remembrance takes place at 3:00 p.m. local time. Continue reading

President’s Day: February 18, 2013
Rev. Larry Wallenmeyer, Patriotic Action, put together an exceptional series of photos revealing George Washington’s and Abraham Lincoln’s words. His work is being posted here for our readers. The wisdom of our former presidents as seen in their words are as pertinent today as they were in their time. Indeed, they are timeless. Let us celebrate President’s Day.
Let their words serve as a reminder of America’s exceptionalism, and its traditions and values that are currently being destroyed by the Left’s determination to transform our nation. During these days of a rogue and corrupt Anti-American administration, the wisdom of our forefathers will renew our spirit and fight to keep what they fought for… freedom and liberty for all.
The man serving as our president today will never have his words repeated years from now, nor will his words ever inspire like those of Washington and Lincoln whose heads were carved into the side of a mountain, Mt. Rushmore. In time, Obama’s words will do the opposite. Obama’s words will be used like those of other tyrannical leaders such as Mao, Hitler, and Stalin. His legacy and words will be relegated to the dustbins of history where they belong. As George Washington said, they are “bad company.”
May the words of these great men continue to inspire us, and renew our determination to fight to maintain all that we hold near and dear. God Bless America!
Thank you Larry.

Our Real Heroes of the United States of America!
George Washington was our First President of the United States and served from 1789 – 97. He is considered the “Father of our Nation.” He was born February 22 , 1732, in Westmoreland County, Virginia and died December 14, 1799 at Mount Vernon, Virginia. He was ambitious, honorable, and decent, but only wanted admiration and respect. He didn’t want to be king. He was the commander in chief of the colonial armies during the American Revolution (1775–83).
