    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    James K. Polk

    Made the United States a continental nation, pretty much fulfilled all his promises, and did it in one term (another promise).

    what the hell are you even talking about????
    1- I am talking about your reaction to my post on Post #11 in this thread.
    2- "Hell" seems to be the word of the day? Why did I not get the memo?

    What is very strange is that in your own post #59 right here you mentioned the same study that I referenced.

I simply made the observation that republican-leaning scholars were a rarity. anyone who has ever attended a university or college anywhere in the US can tell you that. I would wager that democrat/liberal-leaning scholars outnumber republican/conservative-leaning scholars 7-8 to 1 easily (the ratio is even higher if you restrict it to the non-technical fields of study)
    He just wants to derail this thread into yet another bash libertarian thread. It's very weird.

    Anyway, as to the topic, the baddest-ass president is Andrew Jackson, end of story.

    Teddy Roosevelt could kick Jackson's ass with one hand.

    The more conservative one teaches Intro in American Politics, but I have him for Public Opinion and Voting and I have him for Legislative Powers next semester. The other one is my Spanish professor. That being said I would imagine 40-45% of my teachers have been conservative.

    My post was very much on topic - see post #2 right in this very thread and it has been cited and discussed throughout.

    I did not bash any libertarian, quite the opposite when I cited a study commissioned by the libertarian oriented Federalist Society.

    There is really no need for such anger folks just because somebody presents a different point of view.
