The Evil Lincoln
(23 comments) With Abraham Lincoln's birthday just passed on February 12th the media was replete with praise for him. Unfortunately, this whitewashed view of him is misguided.

Sen. Gravel Tries to Make Government Work
(5 comments) Former Sen. Mike Gravel, a contender for the Libertarian party presidential nomination, is a supporter of the National Initiative for Democracy.
