    The university explanation goes thusly:
    "The Carruthers Center for Inner City Studies at Northeastern Illinois University is housed in a building that bears historical significance. From time to time, the integrity of a plaque honoring the memory of Abraham Lincoln is questioned. Installed in the building for its opening in 1905, the plaque includes an inscription of the word "democrat" following Abraham Lincoln's name. According to building archives, the word democrat was used because Lincoln was an advocate for democracy—the political or social equality of all people. The word was not chosen to reflect a political affiliation."
    Here's the problem with that. He was a Republican, because in the truest sense of the words Democrats believe in majority rule. Everyone gets a vote in a democracy, but the 51% can steal the rights from the 49% by way of that vote. Republicans believe in individual human rights, even those of slaves, which was Lincolns stance.

YOU threaten me and my Family, there will be consequences. Ain't saying Judge and Jury.....What I am saying is self defense against predators. Give a RATS backside who ya are!

    HA! Well, I guess I'm the "Rainbow Coalition" of gun-owners then, because my .45 is "white" (stainless slide/matte-finished alloy frame), one 9mm in Dark Earth, another one in black, another one that's gray (poly) and white (stainless slide), a blue shotgun and an unstated number of black rifles (maybe?) some with various colors of wood adorning them.

    While I don't consider myself a knife-fighter in any way, shape, manner or form, I do happen to have folders that I carry regularly in all three of the colors you mention above. LOL My latest acquisition is this Kershaw Special Edition Blur:



    Hey, nothing wrong with making a fashion statement with your weaponry! HA!

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    Libs always try to twist the truth to meet their own agenda. The above is on the library at Univ. of Illinois. Interestingly enough, it was placed there in 1905 while the KKK was at it's prime and civil rights were still in the distant future.

    Yeah, really! It should read, "Genocidal Maniac, Constitutional Usurper, and Tyrant!"

    .
    In 1905, they didn't "screw" this up. They were saying that Lincoln was a 'democrat', not a Democrat. This is only getting a lot of airtime recently because someone tweeted it and then it got into Fox News' hands.
    .
    I'm sure if it was a legitimate screw up then in the last 108 years, someone would have fixed it.
    .
    Interestingly, Lincoln actually started in the Whig party.
    True. The Republican Party didn't exist when Lincoln started in politics. The Republican Party was started in 1854 to oppose the pro-slavery Democratic Party and those in the Whig Party who favored slavery. Lincoln was a prominent figure in the shaping of the new party. But Lincoln was never a democrat, in party or in social principle. The Whig Party was named after the founding fathers, and was dedicated very much to a republican form of government, not a democratic one. Democracy was never the desire of a Whig, and never the desire of Lincoln. Anyone claiming otherwise is just preaching ignorant, revisionist history.

    I'm a firm believer in two term limits for all politicians; one in office, the other in prison.

    I personally agree with you, but this is what I have heard as the explanation from the college. Since 1908, no one has decided to change the sign. Either they had to change it or have a reason for keeping it.
