Libertarian Regional Message Board
Side issue, but who do you guys think is the best U.S. President? For me, it's a tossup between Cleveland and Coolidge.
^ Interesting choices.
I greatly admire Roosevelt ( Teddy, not Franklin D. )
There is a risk that the DPRK would take hostages of any foreign business people until Richardson paid tribute or the Treasury does.
Coolidge, then Cleveland. I think. Incidentally, I'm related to President Hayes, unless I mixed that up with someone else not that well-known.
The Free Land of Sheetzland - most businessmen well do business with anyone (Lenin - anyone). That may well be a weakness - especially of they do not understand that someone can take their money and then kill them anyway.
Syria - Sunni versus Shia. There are no nice guys in this war.
Favourate President - I will pick one who lost and who went out, unfairly, blamed for a massive slump.
Martin Van Buren.
He opposed the National Bank and he opposed the "pet" State banks of his friend Andrew Jackson also.
No President was more committed to keeping the Federal government within its Consitutional limits than Van Buren - although, alas, he shared the blindness towards American indians that most (but not all) people had in his time. Although the "trial of tears" was actually meant to save lives (I know that sounds absurd - but people thought it would prevent a war, they were wrong and land stealing is imoral).
And he came to see that slavery was wrong.
Of the Presidents mentioned - President Cleveland for me (although not the ICC of 1887).
@ThinkPads: Related to Hayes, eh? Sigh. Well, I'm remotely related to the Lees of Virginia, but that doesn't hold much water with most people! Heh!
I'll give Hayes credit for ending Reconstruction, but beyond that my knowledge of him is a little shaky. As for Lee, he was a military genius. The side he chose in a conflict that divided half of the country shouldn't obscure that fact.
^ Indeed he was. I often wonder how long the war would have run had he accepted Lincoln's offer to head up the Northern armies.
I think the war would have been over quicker had Lee been commanding, partly because he had respect for the Southern people and their property (unlike Generals such as Sherman). The majority of Southerners were not seperatists or slave owners. The overwhelming majority was not involved in the attack on Harper's Ferry and would have had no reason to get involved had northern troops not burned down their farms, their towns, etc. Once that happened, they, like any other person, were going to defend themselves and that's why I think the war went on as long as it did.
^ I agree!
So ... anyone wanna hazard a guess on when the financial system is going belly-up? I'm predicting within the next 60 days.
