Bob hit that nail right. Abraham Lincoln once began a letter to a friend, “. . . I apologize for writing such a long letter as I did not have enough time to write a short one. …” Lincoln got a lot of things wrong, but not that.

The Gettysburg Address is the most effective political Mantra in history. After the defeats at Gettysburg on July 3, 1863 and the surrender of Vicksburg on July 4, 1863, Lincoln considered the Confederacy well on its way to destruction. He no longer had to think about uniting white forces for war.
While other Republicans were fixated on the Iraq, sorry I mean the Civil War, Lincoln immediately began planning for the POST-War Age.
When Lincoln got to Gettysburg in late July of 1863, he was getting ready to declare the total revolution that had occurred in America. The legend is that he wrote it on the back of an envelope on his way to Gettysburg. Actually I can tell you as a writer he had been working on it for MONTHS.
Look at its Mantra qualities. First, it is short and a major portion of the population can recite it form memory.
Secondly, it carries the mailed first of revolution in the velvet glove of poetry. The Gettysburg Address, in its first sentence, nullifies the Constitution. “We the People of the United States of America and our posterity” ceases to have any relevance. America is now dedicated to the proposition that ALL MEN are created equal.
That proposition was written into the Declaration of Independence as an appeal for French liberal support, the exact same thinking that underlay the French Revolution and, later, Marxism.
In the end, Lincoln’s statement “government of the people, by the people, for the people” is using the term “people” straight out of French Revolutionary thinking and Marxism. His “by the people” means exactly what Marx meant by “dictatorship of the proletariat.”
The Declaration had several clerics at that convention declaring for Deism, just as it had slave holders declaring all men equal. “Nature and Nature’s God” is not a mystical term,and it has nothing to do with Christianity. Every person there recognized it as straight Deism, the religion of Voltaire and Rousseau, the basis of French Revolutionary thinking.
What about rule … by the people …?” Lincoln’s “the people” had nothing to do with setting the government’s goals. That universal goal was stated at the outset: America exists to enforce the universal equality of mankind. That is what Bush is declaring right now in Iraq.
America went into World War I to “save civilization.” It gave a third of humanity to Stalin and Mao in World War II to “eradicate racism around the world.”
What Lincoln’s Mantra dedicates us to can be recited by a major portion of our society.
And nobody but me even notices how effective it was or that it was a revolutionary statement.
Now THAT’S a MANTRA!
– OUR Mantra
The White Mantra
” Liberals and respectable conservatives say there is this RACE problem. Everybody says this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY white country and ONLY into white countries.”
“The Netherlands and Belgium are as crowded as Japan or Taiwan, but nobody says Japan or Taiwan will solve this RACE problem by bringing in millions of third worlders and quote assimilating unquote with them.”
“Everybody says the final solution to this RACE problem is for EVERY white country and ONLY white countries to “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-whites.”
“What if I said there was this RACE problem and this RACE problem would be solved only if hundreds of millions of non-blacks were brought into EVERY black country and ONLY into black countries?”
“How long would it take anyone to realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem. I am talking about the final solution to the BLACK problem?”
“And how long would it take any sane black man to notice this and what kind of psycho black man wouldn’t object to this?”
“But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against my race, the white race, Liberals and respectable conservatives agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.”
“They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white.”
“Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.”
