Oh, yeah, the "why."

Washington was an anti-tyrant, never trying to outreach his own powers and even becoming President only for the sake of America.

Jefferson believed completely in small government and liberty for all.

Reagan tried, at least, to cut down government spending.

Clinton, Reagan, Wilson.

Clinton because even though I'm Canadian, I essentially grew up with his administration always in the news.

Reagan, obviously not for his economics, but for his fairly progressive foreign policy, and his role in some of the biggest events in modern history.

Wilson for his role in trying to quell the European mess after WWI, even though he failed, it set out a lot of what happened in later generations.

I've also got a soft spot for Truman.

Also, hasn't this thread been created like three times before?

He kinda failed there.

Grover Cleveland - Classical liberal. Relatively laissez-faire. Gold standard supporter. Opposed imperialism. Against subsidies and tariffs and taxes and inflation and all that other stuff the politicians these days love.

Maybe I'll throw in Bucchanan for not being a tyrant and letting the South secede, which was their natural right.

Yeah, most people actually hate Bucchanan for allowing liberty to exist, and adore Lincoln for his tyranny. It's a mad, mad world.

FDR, the man who set the price of gold at 21 cents per ounce because 21 is 3 times 7, and 7 is a lucky number? lol

FDR, the man who decided that destroying crops and livestock would raise farm prices and thus be a great economic policy.

Probably George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama. I give H. W. Bush props for having high ranks in the Illuminati. George W. Bush because he was an entertaining spokesperson for the elites. He has many classic quotables. Obama, because of his intelligence and articulation.

Generally curious, I'm not bashing.

Seconded.

Plus, Geo, could you find out if Jean Chretien or Michael Ignatieff are apart of the Illuminati? I'm generally curious as well.

We should start a "Let's ask Geo Illuminati questions" thread.

"Helped." Yeah, let's go with that, if you consider that there was actually a stock market crash even worse than Black Tuesday that the government ignored, and it actually righted itself before government could do anything.
If anything, FDR helped the Great Depression into America.

I've seen that once. The source isn't too legitimate.

Do you have a source? You need to provide a good source anyways.
It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

Lol. I dunno. I just remember a few months ago I came across that piece of information. I don't know where.

After googling, this is the only thing I could find: http://books.google.com...

That book didn't cite anything.
