    Come on, you can do better than that. I get that you like Clinton because he supported Kosovo, and I agree that Clinton was a really great US president, but greatest of all time?

    As President, not other times and aspects of their life.
    Just want to post and say I'm so, so happy Andrew Jackson was not included as an option.

    It's really not that hard to understand.

    What's funny is you attacking him for it when he is the only president, in my recollection, that ever had the balls to admit it. And please, let's not pretend any president has served without a lie; that's too naive.
    Thanks eco, you saved me the trouble of posting exactly this.

    Get a clue...
    If they don't approve of the system at all and want it removed, it is hypocritical to take part in said system. And you tell ME to get a clue? That's like saying abortion should be illegal while you are walking into the clinic to have one.

    If you think the system should be abolished, collecting money on it IS hypocritical, period. Now, if you want to CHANGE the system, that is another story. I'm talking about people that want it abolished and then collecting the money. Sorry, but that is literally like wanting abortion to be illegal, while you are walking into the clinic to have one. Yes, it's hypocritical.
