1. I fully expect the mob to turn on him if he backs off the hatred

He has no idea what he has started.

4. And if they start it, it will end the same way as in '65 ... the Union forever!


I repeat then that by the original compact of government the United States had certain rights in Georgia, which have never been relinquished and never will be; that the South began war by seizing forts, arsenals, mints, custom-houses, &c., long before Mr. Lincoln was installed and before the South had one jot or tittle of provocation. I myself have seen in Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi hundreds and thousands of women and children fleeing from your armies and desperadoes, hungry and with bleeding feet. In Memphis, Vicksburg, and Mississippi we fed thousands upon thousands of the families of rebel soldiers left on our hands and whom we could not see starve. Now that war comes home to you, you feel very different. You deprecate its horrors, but did not feel them when you sent car-loads of soldiers and ammunition and molded shells and shot to carry war into Kentucky and Tennessee, and desolate the homes of hundreds and thousands of good people who only asked to live in peace at their old homes and under the Government of their inheritance. But these comparisons are idle. I want peace, and believe it can now only be reached through union and war, and I will ever conduct war with a view to perfect an early success. But, my dear sirs, when that peace does come, you may call on me for anything. Then will I share with you the last cracker, and watch with you to shield your homes and families against danger from every quarter.

5. That is why narscisists are so dangerous.

It is me, me, me, what works best for me ?

They are devoid that their words and their actions can cause very negative reactions and lasting repercussions.

Their only concern - How does it impact and effect me ? What is best for me ?

6. I always he would cause more political violence

Not quite ready for civil war yet. Hopefully never. But there will be assassinations and civil unrest.
