Quote: Abraham Lincoln

“I believe that every individual is naturally entitled to do as he pleases with himself and the fruits of his labor, so far as it in no way interferes with any other men’s rights.”

– Abraham Lincoln, instituter of the first income tax (The Revenue Act of 1861), a National Bank (The National Banking Act), a military draft for the Civil War/War Between the States/War of Northern Aggression/War of the Rebellion/War for Southern Independence/War of Secession (choose your flavor), and who suspended the writ of habeas corpus during his term as President.
