Who was the best president?
First the question on Anarchism, and now this. What exactly is your purpose? Stimulating philosophical conversation with high school kids who just want to get into an academy?
Personally, I think you'd be better off finding a different forum for these types of discussions.
Edit: after checking your profile, I see you are a high school kid. I suggest you join the Junior Statesman of America or the philosophy club or something.
My all-time favorite quote is from Benjamin Franklin - In 1755 (Pennsylvania Assembly: Reply to the Governor, Tue, Nov 11, 1755), Franklin wrote: "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
I agree. Are you trying to impress us with important sounding questions or are you looking for help on your h.s. homework assignments????
Joan Whitney Payson, President of the New York Mets, 1968-1975.
Never heard of them. Are they in the WNBA?
Wake up and smell the Rheingold, LITS. Only a month into the season, it's not too late to dump those losers and get on the Mets bandwagon. And it's only fitting that the team with the Best President would have the best song as well.
How has "M-E-T-S Mets Mets Mets" not become a thing?
Ya gotta believe!!
I like Teddy, because he brought John Paul Jones' remains back from France and re-interred him in a very nice crypt under the USNA Chapel.
I recognize the OP's intent was likely serious, but a broad question without specifics as to scope - well, it invited gentle fun. I enjoy the Nationals' Racing Presidents.
Thanks for the forums above- I will check them out. My personal ballot goes to James Monroe.
Better yet start your own. Only drawback to that might be if it gets out of hand and reflects poorly on your Academy apps
If they don't like it, who cares? They'll have lost their best candidate.
I'm sure they'll survive.
