The Evils of Necessity
The White Supremacist who Freed the Slaves.
The man who didn't end slavery and
raped the U.S. Constitution to win a war.
As the Civil War got underway and the number of States becoming discontent with the federal government increasing, Abe Lincoln faced the unavoidable deed of ignoring the U.S. Constitution and Congress in order to protect the Union. On his own accord, Lincoln declared a State of War and assumed all powers he felt necessary to prevent the United States from falling apart. That included suspending Habeas Corpus, installing military law within the States and imposing unconstitutional laws. The most famous of his unconstitutional laws was the Emancipation Proclamation. In today's politically correct revisionist history, it is taught that Lincoln was dead set against slavery and thus freed the slaves with his Emancipation Proclamation. Although that sounds heroic and nice, it is far from what Lincoln had in mind.
As a war tactic 3 years into the Civil War, a tactic which proved to be a popular one, Lincoln abolished slavery, however, his proclamation only applied to a small section of the South which was declared in rebellion against the United States and under the control of the Confederate Army. Slavery remained legal in every other State that previously allowed it. Slaves continued to work at the White House and the white Indentured Servant business flourished. Lincoln even went as far as using the Union military to protect the Slave Trading Businesses of the North after the Civil War ended.
Lincoln, a White Supremacist, needed something to hinder the efforts of the Confederate Army. The strength in the South was it's economic life which relied mainly on slavery. By abolishing slavery in those areas controlled by the Confederate government, Lincoln was able to inflict enough economic damage to make a major impact in how the Confederate States could finance their Army. With slavery becoming the enemy of the Union, anti-slave countries like France and Britain could no longer trade with the Confederacy or join the war on behalf of the South. The economic hardship caused so much of an impact, the Confederate Army had to resort to taking guns and supplies from old battle fields and from the bodies of dead soldiers. Without it's economic life source, the South became destined to lose it's battle with the North.
After the War ended, Congress imposed numerous laws to further punish the South, including a Constitutional Amendment that finally abolished slavery and which took away the economic strength that the South once thrived on.
