    Probably Teddy Roosevelt, he stands a few heads taller than all the rest in my opinion.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That's an easy one. Calvin Coolidge. He was the most Laissez Faire president that we ever had. When Calvin Coolidge died while in office one news reporter asked, "How could you tell?"

    Calvin Coolidge deliberately accomplished the least amount of things while in office. It would be wonderful to have a president like that again.

    Coolidge helped pave the way to send the US into the Great Depression. Restrictive tarriffs, limiting immigration, minimizing government and letting the free market go unregulated for the sake of current profit.... But gosh...things were so great during his tenure! (hmm. Sounds like GWB, doesnt it?)

    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Right you are grasshopper.
    National Parks, Panama Canal, anti-trust, anti-Gilded wing of the GOP..
    An end to 9-YO miners with missing toes and fingers, the backbone of the GOP monopolies.
    Progress--ive policies that fixed the gerry-mandered Senate (17th amendment)..
    The 16th that scofflaws in the GOP still hate.
    And the foundation for ACA.

    TR was truly a forward-looking President.
    He asked the question, what should it be like in 100 years, just as Lincoln did.
    He knew how much his own gilded wing would fight insurance for all .

    Kandidate Kal Koolidge, as the KKK called him, was the favored kandidate of the KKK.
    The KKK brochures were put out in Southern avenger churches at election time.
    The largest march ever by the KKK was held during Kal's time, right there in D.C.
    The KKK had its greatest years during Kal's tenure.
    What a ****kkking disaster he was .

    I admire TR. If he was around today there would be none of this too big to fail. I disagree with the 17th amendment, but that is okay. I also think the 16th was a mistake, remember the debate back then was it would only apply to the top 1-3% of the population. Like Thomas Jefferson, I do not believe a man should be taxed by the sweat of his brow. Now money speculators is fine with me. I do not have to agree 100% with any presidents policies to realize who was great, who was average and who is way below average. Heck I would settle for an average president since 2000. TR would be a great bonus.

    Doesn't sound like GWB, actually. The Depression was the fault of central banking (the Fed).

    Remember Newt's infomercial on when Romney came to town?
    Romney started that **** in the 80's with the paper mills in the northeast, stealing pension funds in leveraged buyouts.
    Someone should do that to your Military pension so you know how it feels, how the Detroit Police and Fire Depts. feel .
