And of course when things get bad enough, "the man on horseback" instinct kicks in --how much better if you can try to sell yourself on the idea that it isn't *entirely* The Dictator you're selling your country out to for temporary relief.

Even during the American Civil War there were often reocurring rumours of a military coup against Lincoln brewing when things looked particularly bad. First it was going to be Fremont, and then it was going to be McClellan. I may have missed a couple in between.

There is no convincing evidence that either man seriously considered active participation in such a movement. . . but the evidence is less convincing that neither was willing to be drafted if "somehow" the government fell on its own without them having to engage in active treason before hand. And fairly convincing evidence that both were quite sure they could do a better job than Mr. Lincoln should that come to pass. :)

don't know how i feel about this. RAH seems a bit high-horsed here, especially considering that he could have been doing another trade other than writing fiction.

here's a link to photos of the letter, in case someone missed it

After reading the comments on the i09 webpage, I doubt RAH would have any more use for the fans of today than he did those of 1944.
