Judge Andrew Napolitano, the one and only, gave tremendously insightful (and necessary) insight regarding Abraham Lincoln. Judge Nap noted that he is, like me, a “contrarian” on Lincoln and bemoans the way he has been mythologized.
You may find the clip here. Be sure to watch the relatively short segment in its entirety.
I’ve long railed about this subject and recommend you all read “The Real Lincoln,” by Thomas diLorenzo, found here on Amazon.

Kudos to Kmele Foster and Kennedy Nation for this fascinating discussion.
