    If you want to add someone, add why. And this is modern history and focused on leaders who’ve had a positive influence on mankind.

    My order, not set in stone, just molasses.

    Washington
    Lincoln
    Churchill
    Reagan
    Thatcher

    You knew this was coming...
    Trump (if you take away his access to tweets.)

    And he shouldn't speak unless the speech was written for him by a speechwriter.

    The problem in the last hundred years is that the mainstream media just doesn't like republicans and the media writes the history books.

    That’s why I read a lot of books by authors who stick to facts.

    The truth is out there if you look for it. "Historians" claim that Lincoln "preserved the Union" when the Union fell apart under his watch and he did nothing to prevent it. Who cares about Churchill and Thatcher?

    Absolutely... Trump. He's done MORE for AMERICA than the all the presidents in my life time.

    He's the ONLY OUTSIDER that DARED to run for president and WIN, and yes, they HATE him for that. To have the GALL to get elected and claim you're going to DRAIN THE SWAMP.

    Well in my opinion, that's the BEST I'VE EVER SEEN, and his accomplishments are nothing short of ASTOUNDING, in SPITE of the RESISTANCE.

    He's ALMOST the best in my lifetime, IMHO. I was two years old when Kennedy was assassinated. I would rate him SLIGHTLY above Trump. I would rate our current president as #5 all-time. I would rate only Lincoln, Washington, Kennedy and Jefferson higher than Mr. Trump. And of course, he should have a lot of time to move up on my list, considering he probably won't be officially leaving the White House until January of 2025.

    Stalin

    Castro

    Hitler

    Hussein ( not Obama but Saddam )

    Mao

    Little Ninja in the PJ's from North Korea

    ....

    Those are mine and why?

    Simple, you know what to look for and know those are not what you want as great leaders.

    But

    Truthfully Ike was the last great leader of this Country in my opinion.

    His vision of the Interstate System and warning of the Military Complex put him number one...
