"We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts..." -Abraham Lincoln

(I received this as an undocumented internet forward. Design creator should contact me for proper credit.)
For numerous reasons, a huge number of people despised Lincoln, in his day. This true quote shows him to have been a bit of a political hypocrite, as President, with regard to certain presidential edicts he issued during our Civil War.  Abraham Lincoln said that he knew that he was not above our Constitution, despite certain of his questionable acts as president. Where is that courage of which Lincoln spoke, that "we, the People" should actively stand on, by, and with our Constitution, especially against the tyrannies of "the men who would pervert the Constitution"?
