    Q9 General Headache

    Quote:13,000 political prisoners (low estimate), imprisoned without a trial or charges, denial of First Amendment rights to opposition newspapers and citizens, deportation of an opposition Congressman, unilateral declaration of war, unilateral suspension of the writ of Habeas Corpus, as well as issuing an arrest warrant for a judge that ruled the War unconstitutional. What? Still not enough?

    Arrested most of the Maryland legislature at gunpoint because they might have voted to secede.
    Illegally created the state of West Virginia.
    Supported an amendment to make slavery permanent.
    Micromanaged a war that killed 700,000 soldiers and around 50,000 Southern civilians.
    Complicit in a mass execution of Indian warriors who were guilty of no crime.
    Add to that the fact that he was a pathological liar.
