Abraham Lincoln: The Powers of the President to Invade

General News

LETTER TO WILLIAM H. HERNDON. WASHINGTON, February 15, 1848

 

"Allow the President to invade a neighboring nation whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such purpose, and you allow him to make war at pleasure. Study to see if you can fix any limit to his power in this respect, after having given him so much as you propose."

"The provision of the Constitution giving the war-making power to Congress was dictated, as I understand it, by the following reasons: Kings had always been involving and impoverishing their people in wars, pretending generally, if not always, that the good of the people was the object. This our convention understood to be the most oppressive of all kingly oppressions, and they resolved to so frame the Constitution that no one man should hold the power of bringing this oppression upon us. But your view destroys the whole matter, and places our President where kings have always stood."

 

Yours truly, A. LINCOLN. (as a Congressman)

I have encountered this quotation three times in my life. First is when my high school History teacher discussed it in passing in class. I couldn't understand it and I couldn't fathom how it was relevant to our class discussion. Second is when I used it as a reference for an essay I wrote for uk.bestessays. Finally, I alread understand what Lincoln meant. And third, now that I'm browsing this site, it's the first thing that caught my attention.

Identify a potential target. Geographical proximity to your country of residence is handy, but many out-of-the-way spots provide good opportunities, especially if they don't attract much attention in the press. If you're totally at a loss, aim for the caribbean. Thanks.
