Not completely. Selectively. But if he adhered to it then the US wouldn't exist anymore.

You did note the troubled times in which he held office, yes? And how he didn't exactly go all Hitler on everyone...

He pushed the country into a civil war.
errr...no. Most Southern states had seceded before he even took office. Hell, JEFFERSON DAVIS took office as the Confederacy's Presidnet before Lincoln took office...

He completely disregarded civil liberties. Lincoln's presidency was the closest this country has ever been to tyranny. Had he not been assassinated, we probably wouldn't be a free country today.
Comical. You clearly have no idea what really happened and what his post-war plans were.
