LOL, I was thinking the exact same thing: WHERE'S TEDDY ROOSEVELT! :D

I voted for FDR, because for me the battle between the best presidents is always between the two Roosevelts.

Just wanted to mention one thing: I think it's hard for us to judge all past presidents, since most of us know little about 200 year old presidents. You can't blame people for not knowing everything of all 43 presidents. Because, I mean, who here can tell me what's the most important thing President Harrison did in his first term?

Ok, that's a lame one, because the answer is 'dying'. But you all know what I'm going at :)

Reagan was the best by far.

-------------------------------

Far too often the 1980's are referred to as the "Decade of Greed." The decade that only the rich got richer and the poor became poorer... The following facts are to prove that all benefited from "Reaganomics" during the 1980's... Rich and poor alike. We see the word"Reaganomics" as a symbol of greater prosperity to all.

18.6 million new jobs were created between 1980 and

1990.

Unemployment which was at 7.1% when Reagan took

office. It fell to 5.3% by the time he left office.

The average annual growth rate of real gross domestic

product (GDP) from 1981 to 1989 was 3.2 percent per

year, compared with 2.8 percent from 1974 to 1981 and

2.1 percent from 1989 to 1995.

In 1981, the unemployment rate was 7.6 percent.

In 1988, the unemployment rate was 5.5 percent.

In 1980 the consumer price index (CPI) was 13.5%.

In 1988, the CPI had fallen to 4.1.

You people make me laugh. Abraham Lincoln was the greatest presiden bar none. Why? One sentence answers that:

He held this country together at a time when it did not wish to be held together.

If Lincoln hadn't succeeded, none of these other presidents you claim to be the greatest would have mattered because the United States of America WOULD NOT HAVE EXISTED!!!

I didn't see Jefferson Davis :D so I went with the Father of our Countr(ies) the USA (& the CSA)! :) The Father of our country did much to stabilize and unite the nation. He looked to the Lord for guidance and set precendents still used by many presidents today. Hard to go wrong there.

Glad to see nobody voted for that Tryrant Lincoln.

Now Teddy I like (but he used too much Federal Central Government Power for my liking but I still like Pres. TR!) :D

:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: (Couldn't help it....I like those laughing faces :) They made me laugh seeing htem everywhere!)

keithl4170,

Yes Lincoln held our country together.........BY FORCE!!! When he made the Gettysburg Address in principle he was talking about the Confederacy....you know government of the people, by the people, and FOR the people! :D Try out my dialouge with SSVegeta123243 under MY Scenario (the one with 5 pages) about the War and see some facts your History teacher might not've told you.

No my friend, Lincoln DESTROYED our nation when he disregarded the Constitution and supplemented his own distorted version of the document that the New England Merchantmen desired.

I didn't see him talk against secession in his 1847 address to the US House of Representatives: "ANY (Let's see...that includes SOUTHERNERS of 1861) people, anywhere (OK that includes the Southern States in the UNION), inclined and having power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government (that's what the SOUTH Lawfully, Legally, and Constitutionally DID in 1860-1), and form a new one that suits them better (ok we went from USA to CSA! That new right?!). This is a most valuable (you bet it is!), a most sacred right (AMEN), a right which we hope (Not in 1861 the hypocritical Yankees didn't) and believe is to liberate the world (except for Southerners who were taxed to death without representation Outnumbered in 1861!).

If I were you I would read: When In The Course of Human Events by Charles Adams and The Real Lincoln by Thomas DiLorenzo.

-Rev. Creighton Lovelace, Th.D

By the way, if WE had won, the US of A would still be around! They just wouldn't be as BIG, OBNOXIOUS and Socialist as they are today! :)

Lincoln did indeed hold this country together by force, a choice he needed to make, and did not want to make, since THE SOUTH STARTED THE WAR!!! Lincoln's decision to send supplies to Fort Sumter, knowing full well that these supplies and the fort itself would be fired upon, was one of the shrewedest decisions of his presidency. If there's going to be a war, let the other side start it, and the South stupidly proved more than willing to accommodate him.

As for Lincoln changing his mind about secession, his thoughts evolved on a lot of issues, including slavery, emancipation, and the prosecution of the war itself. In other words, he understood the situtation in which he and his country found themselves and realized that his ideas would have to evolve in order to add meaning and purpose to the war effort and bring it to a successful conculsion, which thankfully he did. If these efforts brand him a "tyrant" in your eyes, so be it. He knew he was on shaky constitutional ground in a lot of the actions he took, but he took the risks and left it to history, not prevailing opinion, to judge his actions. I'm glad to say that history has treated him well, the revisionist views of certain of our countrymen notwithstanding.

You want some books to read? Try David Herbert Donald's biography of Lincoln and of course James McPherson's Battle Cry of Freedom.

Keith A. Layton

P.S. Just to emphasize my support of this country's (or, for those of you still fighting the war, the Union's) efforts and actions during The Civil War, one of my favorite generals is William Tecumseh Sherman. He did what needed to be done militarily to win that war, just like Lincoln did what needed to be done politically.

Mr. Layton,

Any revisionist view of history stems from the Northern viewpoint of the war. I am familiar with Mr. McPherson's books although he is not a favourite author.

Whether his (or our) thoughts evolve does not make them right. The Constitution was to be interpreted with the rights that were delegated therein not by "reading between the lines" this was the gross fallacy of what the Federalist and Republican justices did - and we suffer for it today.

Yes, Lincoln is not the bumbling idiot many make him out to be. He was a cunning sly devil determined to destroy our nation as it was originally established.

But remember the old maxim that: "He who causes agression is himself the aggressor" plus with Lincoln's rhetoric in his ignaugural about holding occupying collecting duties that were not his, well that was in the South's eyes tatamount to a declaration of war and the "relief" (Manned expeditionary) fleet was the hostile move against the South - and only honourable response to such a move is self-defense. (The fleet moved into Confederate Waters under admiralty law and thus to prevent a hostile force from entering the harbor of Charleston the South was permitted to defend itself) So Lincoln achieved the effect he wanted - everybody take sides.

Notice the actions of the CSA from Feb. 1861 to April 1861 were involved in PEACEFUL negotiations. All refused by the Buchanan and Lincoln administrations.

Our President Davis told the North: "All we wish is to be left alone." But the North needed its cash to fund Unconstitutional internal improvements and thus hammered the South with high tariffs and with the loss of the tax base the North needed its supply. So the War on the hand of the North was fought over "the love of money, which is the root of all evil." (1 Timothy 6:10)

The NORTH started the war. We acted in self-defense.

Also Sherman violated the then universally held Geneva agreements about warfare waged against civilians and the Articles of War for both the CSA & USA. He is a war criminal. He also wanted to do like Hitler did with the Hebrews: Sherman wanted to murder all Southern White Men, Women & Children and repopulate the South with the freedmen and Northerners.

Thanks for the offer, but I'll pass on the propaganda. My fvourite generals are my 6th Cousin Robert E. Lee and Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson.

Hey, we'll stop "fighting" the War when y'all stop shooting! ;) God Bless.

No Sherman didn't. Sherman actually, not knowing about Lee's surrender to Grant, had created a separate treaty that was much, much more leniant that the one Grant did. I've read Sherman's memoirs, he was a master of total war. It may have been a terrible war, but it was a war nonetheless. I have never heard that Sherman wanted to rape the South and repopulate it...that's something new and a disgusting allegation.
