Understanding Abe

Published: Wednesday, May 1, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

To the Editor:

Imagine how much better our country would be if we just truly understood what Abraham Lincoln said in these three short bits of wisdom:

1. You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.

2. You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

3. You cannot help the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer.

Remember, it is not about the 1 percent of Americans. It is not about the 99 percent of Americans.

It is about the 100 percent of Americans.
