Abraham Lincoln's Republican Tenets Are Still True Today

Do the Republican tenets held by President Abraham Lincoln still stand true today? Republicans have always taken a stand against racism, slavery, high taxes, and abusive governmental power. Republicans have always fought for the rights of the individual. The Republican Party or GOP today is still in harmony with Abraham Lincoln's basic Republican principles. Abe Lincoln was a Republican, not a Democrat. Abe Lincoln was a political conservative, not a leftist liberal.

It is important to remember the fact that Abe Lincoln was a Republican, because people need to know, and fully understand, that it is not Democrats but Republicans, as representatives of the Republican Party, who have always been the people in government who especially opposed and abhorred liberal thought regarding the acceptance of slavery, the raising of personal income taxes, and the idea of government taking care of people instead of people governing themselves and their own lives. Yes, President Abraham Lincoln's Republican tenets really are still true today.
