what did Lincoln mean when he stated, "If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
I think he meant that when our government policies start doing more damage than all of America's enemies have done, we as a nation are allowing ourselves to be destroyed without speaking out, standing up, and fight for change in our country.

What do you mean "fight for change in our country?"
It seems that Lincoln may not have said that. But he said something similar. Your explanation is good.
