Of course he wuz. A great man. The greatest. Thomas Lincoln made Abraham a slave for some neighbor farmer of his, in order to pay for Thomas's debts, and being a slave to somebody else created a massive resentment inside Abe Lincoln, against slavery. Lincoln's cabin isn't really the cabin Lincoln was born in, even though his cabin has been taken like Jesus Christ's manger, who had humble origins. Also, I heard Lincoln had 3 male lovers. Lincoln also passed the Homestead Act, where tracks of land 160 acres large were given to Americans who wanted it. That's straight up socialism. That's land reform. That's redistributing the land, and shouldn't our society be an agrarian society, like how Jefferson envisioned? Or not? Maybe?

Anyways, Lincoln is credited with freeing the slaves, and he did the biggest part in freeing them, even though blacks wouldn't actually get their freedom until the 1960s.

I said Abe Lincoln was a good man. I like the land redistribution plan, and even if it was political, the Emancipation Proclamation sent about eventually freedom. John Wilkes Booth messed up though, and made Lincoln into a martyr, so who knows how he would have handled Reconstruction. I think it would have been better, but Lincoln did say that whites were superior to blacks, but who knows if he was just being a flipfloppin Mitt Romney (U no how those Republicans be).

Yes he was a great man,he was a man that followed Gods word and he wasn't a homosexual. He was the the one that believe all men were created equal and he was the one that freed the black man from slavery which I do agree with but the way some of them have been acting lately he should have left them there.

Lincoln was gay. He was with 3 men. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/15/abra... http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2012/11/0... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexuality_of_Abr...

Following his move in 1837 to Springfield, Ill., a young Lincoln shared a bed for several years with Joshua Speed, and he continued a lifelong correspondence with him after, according to Slate.
