Альтисторическое :-D

Тут в связи с Обамой резко возросла популярность цитат из Линкольна. Процитирую и я:

"As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes." When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty — to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be take pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy".


Впрочем, наверняка ведь уже было.
