This Super Tuesday I decided to look back in time to another era "The Lincoln Douglas Debates of 1858.

These series of seven (7) debates were considered the most significant because the issues of slavery and state rights were equally dividing .

Doulas the democratic candidate was seeking re-election for a third term in the US Senate and Lincoln was running as a Republican.

Lincoln and Douglas took their arguments directly to the people. Lincoln's famous House Divided speech warned that the agitation over slavery coud not cease and declared " A house divided against itself cannot stand".

I am proud to say I am from Illinois and that our country had a President that new how to debate and had the moral standing to defeat slavery.
