Lincoln Was a Traitor . . .

. . . and would have been justifiably hanged for treason (and for war crimes) had the Republican Party lost its war on the South. I have argued elsewhere that this is probably why they “had” to wage total war on the civilian population of their own country, killing some 50,000 Southern civilians in the process: They knew they were war criminals, and could not risk even a stalemate.
For the record, here’s Article III, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution on the subject of treason:
“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.” (emphasis added).
As with all the founding documents, “United States” is in the plural, signifying that the free and independent states are united in forming a compact with each other. Treason means levying war against the free and independent states, as the Lincoln regime did, not against the governent in Washington, D.C. The Republican Party was born of treason.
