Best Politicians of All Time
FDR toppled the German war machine and saved the U.S. from the Great Depression. He won four separate terms due to his sheer popularity and ability to manage world events.
Oh my god, Hitler is #1... Hitler has done many bad things in history why best politician. This guy in the other hand was a great politician and was married to another great first lady, Eleanor Roosevelt! He did good things at the time. Why Hitler? Hitler was a bad person, this guy deserves better.
He was a pretty good leader, but far from the best. He was very discriminatory toward Japanese Americans, putting many of them in internment camps, which provided poor living conditions
We thank him for ending slavery!
Better dead than Red.
He helped free the slaves!
Hitler was a man against Time itself. He was the manifestation of resistance against a dying Era and Cycle and stood as the beacon of light in a sea of darkness. But speaking more clearly: Hitler revitalized the German nation and allowed them to stand back up to the bully Allies who were attempting to silence any opposition to their plans of world domination. Hitler, a young Corporal who had seen the horrors first hand of World War 1 saw what the so called "Liberators" did to his nation and people.
His story is something out of Lord of the Rings. A young artist, survivor of war, a hero on his quest... he rises to the top despite all this opposition against him from the combined forces of Communists and Capitalists (same people) and was able to make the last great stand in this Epoch against the very nature of Time. There are few leaders who could pull this kind of revolution off, but Hitler was able to do it by his own will and determination. He stands above the rest: A warrior ...more
Struggling underdog artist and war hero who rose out of poverty to successfully run for office and inspire hope in millions who hailed him as a hero and champion for human rights. He improved the economic situation of a depression era Germany and promised to overthrow the corrupt banking establishment as well as expand borders for increased access to resources. He succeeded in both of these goals. Was firmly conservative and was fiercely patriotic. Despite putting his people first and foremost, and despite revisionist lies spewed by the globalist press, he showed racial tolerance by allying with minority countries such as the Japanese and Iran, and even Gandhi sent a letter of admiration to the Fuhrer himself. Only lost because he was betrayed by capitalist and communist powers controlled by international bankers. He is known today as perpetuating the Holocaust, but then again the US had Japanese internment camps, the British had an apartheid state in India, and the Russians killed ...more
I can understand why some people are wondering why he is at #1 spot on this list. Let me explain:- The purpose of this list is to find out who is the "best politician of all time". Not the most "kind-hearted politician" or the most "humble politician". The criteria of the list is based on who has achieved more accomplishments as a politician. The accomplishments can be righteous or evil in nature. It doesn't matter. Any sort of accomplishments fits the criteria of this list. In this case, Hitler has accomplished things more than any other politician on this list. He came from rising above poverty to becoming the most powerful on Earth at a time.
Sure, most of his accomplishments were evil and cruel in nature. But that doesn't matter for the criteria for this list. He is #1 because he has accomplished more than any other politician on this list.
He took a nation that was ravaged by WW1, occupied by France, and experiencing one of the worst economic catastrophes in history and made it a world power able to take on every other major European country at once in the span of less than 10 years. No matter what evil he did, it is undeniable that he is the single most influential man in the last 100 years, if not much, much longer. Without Hitler, Europe may have fallen to communism, the rocket may not have been invented, and nuclear power may never have been harnessed. For better or worse, his legacy will most likely last longer than any other leader of the modern age.
Few leaders or people have taken the risks he did, demonstrated true courage and inspired a world of terrified war-broken people to carry on fighting against an unspeakably tyrannical enemy
Stood against world's most dangerous man.
He would never surrender
He saved the free world!
Should be at least top 3
The best human
Best president ever
He fought against communism in the whole world, he understood people's problems and simply was always staying cool
He is just great
The greatest leader ever. He made a new ideology supporting and giving a chance to the most poor people. He took the power just as his own project. He won the Civil war in Russia, made peace with Germany, and built an absolutely new state, the first in the world history giving equal attention to all people. He wrote heaps of works on policy, economics, philosophy.
Built superpower from agricultural hell hole. Worker's rights like 8 hour work day or 30 days vacation - are results of his work.
He created power for the people by himself and thus created his own leadership. Others were voted in. He made it.
Would vote Stalin, but somehow it's not an option here.
Augustus Caesar was an astute political operator and skilled administration, he turned Rome from a city of bricks to one of marble and left an indelible stamp on the Roman, and by extension the Western, world. While not the most proficient military commander and lacking somewhat in empathy and compassion, he had no use of these traits, as he would delegate these tasks that he was weakest in to those who were strongest in them, as shown by his life long partnership with the general Agrippa, that is the mark of a truly great statesman, knowing what burdens it is practical to bear and those which are better suited for men of a different nature. But when it comes to sheer political skill and mastery, Augustus deserves the number 1 spot.
As Machiavelli said, "It is far better to be feared than loved." Augustus was one of the very few rulers/politicians who have managed to successfully be both feared and loved. Thus his position as ruler of Rome was always on solid ground.
Caesar was arguably one of the best politicians and military leaders of all time. He managed to outmaneuver the senate multiple times, and often came out on top in political conflicts.
Head of politicians
Created the bears
Best army commander of all time!
From a simple guy that got his father poisoned, his family made outcast, and his wife kidnapped. To a ruler of a vast empire.
He doesn't belong here. Genghis Khan killed many people and was also one of the most brutal leaders of all time
Was born in a tent, and died as ruler of Northern China, Central Asia, and Iran.
Most powerful army created and lead by him!
He demonstrated that it is possible to manage a nation seeking to balance economic growth coupled with social welfare.
He really helped America and improved society. It's a shame he's not president any more
Amazing people of all the time.
THIS is what this list should look like on my screen:
1. Franklin D. Roosevelt
2. Abraham Lincoln
3. Napoleon Bonaparte
5. Nelson Mandela
R.I.P you all
Greatest war General of all time.
The only person who is more effective than even Hitler in things like Strategy, Tactic, Politic, Wisdom and a whole bunch more.
He is probably not well known besides of Germany. But when you study what he did in politics you will sure vote him in the top spot. His political actions were brilliant.
Probably the best politican of all time, certainly the best modern politician. His actions are unprecedented and still studied today.
The guy unified Germany, and created a complex system of alliances to keep Europe peaceful, and safe.
My favorite president of all time. Restored this country economically and intellectually after buffoon Reagan and prior to the intellectual deficit we have now!
The best president in my lifetime. Brilliant kind caring. Did everything right
Interesting how this dwarf paedophile Putin with photoshoped image can be higher the Clinton?
Brilliant and responsive. Empathetic and a real people's president
Muhammad Ali jinnah was great leader.His legacy has left a massive impact on the people as he has contributed so much to the survival of his country without violence. He struggled for freedom with british as well as hindus simultaneously, that is why in my openion he is far better leader than Mahtama Gandgi
Muhammad Ali Jinnah is a great leader recognized by everyone
The Greatest President of all time. He saved this country from the Cubans and led to a thawing moment in the cold war. Wrote the Civil rights Act of 1964
I'm Russian! I support Putin because he is a true leader! The country he inherited from his predecessor Boris Yeltsin was absolutely broke, degrading, torn apart by war and economic crisis. Look at Russia now! It's 6th largest economy in the world (according to CIA fact book). I'm well aware of how western propaganda is trying to demonize Putin and to make him look like an new Hitler, but they fail constantly. It's Russian mentality - "if the west is scolding us - we do everything right"
He builds up Russia again and Usa wants to destroy it...
Putin thinks for his citizens
Mother Russia will remember Vladimir Vladimirovich for generations to come!
I am not Russian but Putin support!
After his successful defense against 7 countries, he modernized Turkey in 10 years which would have taken 100 years, he made equality rise everywhere, women were treated with respect, genocides ended, Ottoman empire destroyed, democracy in place, everyone loved him even his former enemies, just look at what other countries said about him. So loved by his people and their noble blood that it's illegal to insult him. Ataturk means father of the Turks.
"You can't transform a collapsing Islamic Caliphate into a modern, secular and industrialized united nation by fighting UK, France, Italy, Greece and Armenia at the same time."
Ataturk: actually does it.
A great leader
