He was the founding father of big government. Some see Lincoln along with Lenin as joining the impulse to centralize government in the mid 1800's. The communist party USA used to hold “Lincoln- Lenin day” in celebration of the two great centralizers. 

Lincoln was described as selfish, manipulative, cold and said to use men like tools. Elizabeth Edwards Lincolns sister in law said Lincoln was “a cold man” with “no heart.” Law partner John Stuart said “there was no part of his nature which drew him to do acts of gratitude to his friends.” He would manipulate people and discard them when they offered him no more personal gain. Lincoln suffered with depression and took medicine for it. He was quick tempered, prone to ramblings and outburst of anger. Those who new him best such as his family never voted for him and he did not even carry his hometown in the 1860 election.

Actually, Lincoln was not the man school history books tell us.  After researching him, reading what he wrote and what he did to initiate the civil war...I can understand why he was shot.  Some of his highlights:  In his first inaugural address on March 4, 1861, Abraham Lincoln threatened “invasion” and “bloodshed” (his exact words) in any state that refused to collect the federal tariff tax on imports, which had just been more than doubled two days earlier.  But of course the states of the lower South, having seceded, did not intend to “collect the duties and imposts” and send the money to Washington, D.C.  Lincoln committed treason (as defined by Article 3, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution) by levying war upon the free and independent states, which he always considered to be a part of the American union.  By his own admission (and his subsequent actions), he invaded his own country over tax collection.  He started the war with a false flag.  Quite a few Northern newspapers recognized the game Lincoln was playing.  On April 16, 1861 the Buffalo Daily Courier editorialized that “The affair at Fort Sumter . . has been planned as a means by which the war feeling at the North should be intensified” (Howard Cecil Perkis, Northern Editorials on Secession).  The New York Evening Day Book wrote on April 17, 1861, that the event at Fort Sumter was “a cunningly devised scheme” contrived “to arouse, and, if possible, exasperate the northern people against the South.”  “Look at the facts,” the Providence Daily Postwrote on April 13, 1861.  “For three weeks the [Lincoln] administration newspapers have been assuring us that Ford Sumter would be abandoned,” but “Mr. Lincoln saw an opportunity to inaugurate civil war without appearing in the character of an aggressor.”  The Jersey City American Standard editorialized that “there is a madness and ruthlessness” in Lincoln’s behavior, concluding that Lincolns sending of ships to Charleston Harbor was “a pretext for letting loose the horrors of war.”  He suspended the right of habeas corpus and impris­oned hordes of his political enemies—according to several authori­ties almost 40,000 people. These political prisoners were not charged. They were not tried. They were simply incarcerated and held incommunicado. In some instances their closest family mem­bers did not know if they were alive or dead until the end of the War.  He instituted a policy of total war—the first in our history—and saw to it that his troops burned homes, destroyed crops, and confis­cated property—all to make certain that civilians suffered the cruelest deprivations. He also refused to send needed medical supplies to the South, even when that refusal meant depriving Union soldiers of medicines needed to recover from their wounds. And finally, in the last year of the War, when Davis sent emissaries to negotiate a peace on Lincoln’s own terms, he ordered them out of Washington that the War might continue and the Republicans win re-election.  Good old Honest Abe!
