  • I don't know much about all the US presidents, but I'd say George Washington is one of the best, simply because he didn't support group over another regarding party systems.

  • I say Abraham Lincoln, he stood up for what he believed even when he received loads of criticism and threats and he was a great leader

    Should I count Trump or not. He has not finished his presidency. He might be the best. I don't think he will be. : )

    I think George Washington is the best president due to him being the first and president and doing a lot during his terms, before, and after, etc.

    Let him finish his two terms then decide.
    "Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? " ~Epicurus

    "We must question the story logic of having an all-knowing all-powerful God, who creates faulty Humans, and then blames them for his own mistakes." ~Gene Roddenberry


  • Toss up between FDR and Lincoln as strong and capable presidents that weathered adversity and brought about change. Probably give the edge to FDR for Lincoln's support of an end to slavery being somewhat wishy-washy.

    That said bought a biography of Washington a few days ago that may change my perspective on him.
