    Yes it did, and the protectionism and central bank ideas are just things that I vehemently opposed. Madison before the war is definitely our best president, but after? Not so much.

    Absolutely. Both Jefferson and Polk believed in expanding America's borders. They understood that the European powers surrounding them would always be a threat to their sovereignty. The only way to protect ourselves was to control the continent. I still don't understand why Canada is its own nation. The vast majority of their population live no more than 100 miles from our northern border. Now, Canada is not a threat and no other nation cooperates with us so peacefully and magnanimously. But, 250 years ago, I would have been an advocate for forcing the sale of Canada for our own security. We lucked out. Canadians are great people.

    I've read the Constitution over and over again. I'm now delving into its entire history of Judicial Review. The Government is allowed to expand its borders. This didn't infringe upon anyone's Constitutional Rights.
    There is nothing more dangerous to the liberty of Man than a Government or a Religion seizing upon the strings of an overdeveloped herd instinct amongst the people.

Any other president would have faded into total or near obscurity today or become a joke to most people. Clinton is still the guy people call to party.
    Clinton was America's President. It was weird. We went decades without a Man of the People and then we got Reagan and Clinton, both men of the people, both inspiring leaders. Clinton was inspiring because he managed to unite an utterly divided nation. After the Liberal Congress destroyed itself by pursuing Health Care reform, Clinton sat back and decided that all America really wanted was a healthy economy. He helped Gingrich reform Welfare and Balance the Budget. There were some lapses in regulation, but that happens. I don't think we can really blame that on any one leader or political party. Hindsight is 20/20 and all.

    The people Clinton didn't inspire were social conservatives, who became so angry all the time that no one really wanted to talk with them. It's why guys like David Brooks still have jobs.

    Well, hold on. Just because he was a good person doesn't mean he was a good President.

    I made my choice based on what they actually did as President, not what they did before or after they were President.

    Well, the question was who your favorite president was, not the best president, but even still, Madison was a good president especially considering the circumstances he was dealing with.

    He's the best prez we ever had for gun grabbers, non-inhaling pot heads, draft dodgers, flag burners, woman groppers, purjurers, womanizers, gays that want to be in the military, chinese trade secret swappers, christian killers, baby killers, tree huggers, dolphin lovers,...

    The list just goes on and on!

    Isn't it obvious why I did not respond in my own words? Would you like me to pm you a link to let you know what I am talking about?
