When you read enough, you’ll realize pretty much all of them are tied. Trump and maybe a small handful of others counted on one hand are the exception.

Founding fathers, maybe Jackson, JQ Adams, Lincoln, Grant, maybe Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Carter might be a good person at heart, and Trump.

Definitely Jackson. He is one of the only leaders in history to shut down a central bank and live. That alone makes him one of the greatest.

No wonder he was demonized. My theory is the masons co-opted the anti Masonic party in order to demonize Jackson. His legacy as a power hungry maniac never went away, despite all the good he did. When presented with the Indian removal act, he knew manifest destiny meant settlers would move west weather you wanted it or not and he signed the act, knowing the Natives would be wiped out. Van Buren decided to move them in the trail of tears. Jackson even adopted a Native American child after he was found on the battlefield with his dead mother.

Jackson was the most badass President ever. Beat his own would-be assassin with a cane. At Jackson's funeral, his pet parrot had to be removed from the service because it would not stop cussing out the mourners.

Grant is a POS, he ended up demonitizing silver and removing it as our monitary standard b/c he signed an 11 page bill he conveniently didn't read. We weren't on a gold, but a silver standard until he signed that bill.

Which president was it that was the only one in history to actually pay off the US national debt? Whoever it was I would consider him to be good for at least that reason, but maybe he did other shady things that brings that accomplishment down.

That was Jackson, and they tried to kill him for it.

Calvin Coolidge and Chester Arthur as well.

Not Nixon. He was a pedophile according to this MK Ultra victim of his. Happened on a military hangar in Australia on an airplane. I can't recall if it was the Air Force One.


There are some pictures of him drawn by her as a kid. Really nasty stuff.

Is there any other evidence of that? I’m not saying Nixon was totally a good man but it’s gonna take more than one article to change my mind.
