Adams
Adams
I don't really have an opinion on the Whig presidents
FDR, but Wilson and LBJ are also awful
Lincoln, but not including war criminals, TR or Hoover

Why do you hate Wilson, besides the fact that he had some racist tendencies?

He had no regard whatsoever for the Constitution. He was responsible for the internment of the Japanese and for the court packing scheme. The New Deal did not achieve anything whatsoever, and was mostly unconstitutional anyway.

OK, I agree with you on the court-packing scheme and the Japanese internment.  That was taking it a bit too far.  However, although it didn't change the economic state of the country, the New Deal gave hope and confidence to thousands.  The CCC helped make our National Parks tourist-friendly and gave people jobs when they would have had nothing.  The dams built in the Northwest like Grand Coulee and the Tennessee Valley Authority gave electricity and power to many for the first time.  So the New Deal may not have pulled us out of the Depression, but it was NOT a waste.  

Some consider FDR to be near-Socialist.  To all those out there who think so, it could have been worse.  You could have had Huey "Every Man a King" Long elected as president in 1936.

What I said is that he was awful. Wilson's administration was one of liberties lost and promises unkept.

Excess profits tax, the modern estate tax, a top tax rate of 77%. Kept us out of war, until he didn't. Outlawing criticism of the federal government.

The Federal Reserve was created.  Direct Election of Senators established.  Women were given the right to vote.  All of this happened during his administration.  Wilson was a brilliant visionary with regard to international affairs.  One of the biggest mistakes we made was burying our heads in the sand after the war instead of taking our rightful place in the world as an economic power.  

With the Germans attacking our trade, it was either enter the war or lose more ships.  Take your pick.  Not every politician can keep campaign promises.  Just ask George H. W. Bush.

Federalist
(Both great men, vitally important, impossible to choose.  John Adams is the most underrated of all of the founding fathers.  I abstain.)


I have to agree with you there. ^^^
