Five Worst Presidents Ever

I got this idea from a post on Ron Paul's Facebook group and decided that I should create a list of the presidents that I thought were the worst in history. The following is in no particular order and consist of reasons I believe these men were the worst presidents ever.

Franklin D. Roosevelt
Franklin D. Roosevelt was the thirty-second president of the United States, who if often given credit for his management during the Great Depression. However, FDR is the father of modern socialism and one of the worst presidents in history. Roosevelt created socialized programs such as Social Security and numerous other unconstitutional programs.

Abraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln, despite being championed as one of our greatest presidents, initiated a bloody and unconstitutional war against the South. Lincoln denied the right of the South to succeed from the Union and suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus while jailing hundreds of protesters and journalists.

The Civil War was hardly over slavery, rather, it was a war over keeping the Union in tact. Lincoln despised the blacks, and sought to keep blacks inferior to whites.

Woodrow Wilson
Woodrow Wilson was the twenty-eighth president of the United States. He is responsible for entering the United States into a ridiculous World War 1 where thousands of Americans died in a small European problem that escalated into nonsense.

He also created the League of Nations -- a precursor to the United Nations. Enough said with that.

George W. Bush
I don't think much needs to be said about this president. George W. Bush deceived the American people and entered them into the Iraq War. He has also suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus and enacted the Patriot Act which has led to warrentless wiretaps and renditions. He has also expanded the national debt tremendously and his foreign policy has created much more hatred around the world towards America.

Lyndon B. Johnson

Lyndon B. Johnson, the thirty-sixth president of the United States, is responsible for the escalation of the war in Vietnam which resulted in the deaths of millions. He also created many socialized programs such as Medicare and Medicaid and started the "War on Poverty," which was more of an escalation on Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal.

I hope this creates some great discussions. I wouldn't mind hearing from people on their ideas of the worst presidents in history. I also plan on making a list of the 5 greatest presidents in history in the coming days.

    I can understand and appreciate your perspective on the five presidents, however, every political figure will amass a lengthy list of criticisms.

    If I could take issue with one selection, President Roosevelt, I would ask for a better plan to save the economy of the United States in the 1930's.

    I really do not believe the free market was going to solve this challenge; it was the free market that created the catastrophe.

    Obviously, since then safeguards and more have been created and the United States could back away from certain social economic habits, but for that particular time I see no other positive solution for the problem at hand.

    Your post was well done, certainly makes one pontificate a little more than usual.
