Political Info

Republican
Basic Position: 
Limited Slavery
Opinion on Slavery: 
My opinion on slavery would've been appealing to some and then again, incorrect to others. many people from the south believed that because i was now president, i would have abolished slavery. they thought this because they probably know i was born in the north were there are no slaves, but there are blacks, but we up here treated them like everyone else...as our equal. so i wouldn't really agree with slavery at all. i was raised to treat others the same, not mean or making them feel foolish, but to be kind and respect others. If i was placed in a group between abolitionist or pro-slavery, i would be in the abolitionist group because i think its horrible what many people do with blacks back in the south.
Personal Reason for Position: 
My reasons for my position in slavery was because i grew up were slavery was not common up here in my part of the world, up here in the north. but now because I'm president, i cant just all of a sudden make a law saying there cant be anymore slavery, i cant just abolish it. so now that I'm president i made some choices i didn't really think were the right choices. i agreed to keep slavery were it was. If i abolished slavery, everyone down in the south would've gone barbaric and seceded or fought for their right to keep slavery. so i knew that if I was to take away slavery, it would've been my doings for the deaths of many republicans and democratic's. so i made sure that slavery didn't spread to new territories on the Louisiana territory, or anywhere else, and kept slavery for the Southerners and others.
What Should Be Done About Slavery: 
My decision on what should be done about slavery was to keep it were it was. i didn't want to abolish it because everyone in the south would hate me and not listen to me when the congress and i make new laws. so i kept it were slavery was. i didn't take it away from the southerners, but i also decided that i had to prevent it from spreading to other territories. i was considered a limited slavery person now that I'm the president. i was considered this because i didn't want to abolish slavery, but at the same time i did. if i could i would abolish slavery, but that would make the southerners mad, but if i didn't, the northerners would've thought i wasn't a real northerner.
How I supported this position: 
i supported my position by trying to be loyal and fair to both sides, the north and the south. i left slave have their life as black peasants working for southerners.
Quote About Slavery: 
"If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it," he declared, "If I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that"
