Top 10 Greatest Republican Presidents
Lincoln was all about unity, he lead the country by bringing an End to the Civil War. Sure, people have died but the Confederacy was defeated. Lincoln opposed slavery, therefore introducing the emancipation proclamation which granted the freedom for slaves who were definitely of African descent.
How can you argue with a man who wanted our country to embody in reality that all people who live here are equal? He led the fight to make sure that that would be true. Sadly, the fight continues; it's not over yet. But this is the very basis of our country: Liberty and justice for ALL, not just for SOME.
I shudder to think where this country would be if he had not been elected, and wonder what a second term completed would have been like for this country.
Undisputable. Easily the greatest Republican president, and one of the greatest presidents of the United States.
Who says the left doesn't know about roosevelt. I am a progressive democrat, but if roosavelt was on the ticket. I would choose him over any democratic candidate today.
Two words: national parks. Environmentalists should worship at this man's feet. But, the left knows next to nothing about history. Therefore, they will remain forever ignorant about the most environmentally minded president in US history.
This man was the symbol of manly. He took life by the horns and lived it to the fullest
He had the insight to preserve our valuable land in the National Park System.
War Hero. Supreme Allied Commander during WW2. Created the Interstate Highway System, and made progress on Civil Rights and equality for all Americans.
He was the man responsible for the interstate highway system. He believed if attacked our country had to be mobile. Detested prejudice and believed all men and woman equal.
He was very accepting and progressive.
He's what we need. My favorite president
The Berlin wall fell in his time because he decided to take a stand against Marxist ideology and the failed idea of communism. He played a fundamental role in keeping America from going under in a time of distress. He was a true leader with a presidential way about him.
Ronald Reagan is and should be the hero of the Republican Party. His leadership put in motion the end of the Soviet Union, winning the Cold War, peach through strength, smaller government and more responsible citizens, and the conservative revival in American politics that has shaped our political landscape for decades now.
Reagan was the last real President we have had in the United States. If George H. W. Bush would have maintained his economic policies, we would never have had another Democrat in office. Reagan was everything a president should be, an independent thinker, diplomat, aggressive, and honest. Above all honesty and respect for the office.
His speech to the kids after the Challenger explosion in 1986 was extremely thoughtful and sweet! He was such a great guy! Rest In Piece, 2nd best president in the world.
Trump was a president that understood the realities of his time:
- The culture war was not merely civil disagreement but fascistic leftism;
- The creep of Marxism in mainstream thought and communication;
- Normalization of corporate and political exposure to hostile foreign interests;
- All matters of politics are "social issues" won and lost in the social forum.
What a man. Although the way he talks can put people on edge, he is a maverick. Not owned by anyone, he has been mighty influential and has reignited conservatives and other's passion for their country after the exhausting Obama era. He truly cares about the American people and country. His America First (successful policies by the way) have shown this to be true. Promises made, promises kept. I'm just giving him a lot of credit, cause he can't go unnoticed for his accomplishments, where he often does.
Washington outsider. Giving voice to a grassroots movement to call out the many corrupt entities in our country and abroad. Putting the GOPe on notice, start caring about our country and stop your selfish persuit of power. Democrats are beyond any rehab.
Best and only President to fight for the People! Gave up his Presidential salary and his businesses to jump into the Lion's Den and fight the evil swamp creatures. They never laid a glove on him and he will be back to defeat them in 2024! Thank you President Trump, Melania and entire family for going all in for us! God has a special place for you!
Probably the most intelligent President, his vision of Democracy is the a big reason we are a Republic. Louisiana Purchase, form Napoleon.
I thought Jefferson was on the democratic-republican party, which turned into the democrat party
McKinley is vastly under-rated at 15. He is easily in the top 6-7 Republican Presidents.
Underrated and economy under his administration had strengthened
Played a big part of defining our Democratic Republic, was a student of Political theories.
Made environmental progress with the Acid Rain Treaty with Canada, signing it with Brian Mulroney, but also passing a revised version of the Clean Air Act, and creating the National Climate Survey. Also passed the Americans with Disabilities Act. Worked across the aisle with the Democrats.
An intelligent decent human being. Heads and tail above those two buffoons Reagan and trump
Fundamentally helped America and his son unfortunately didn't do much to help the family name
Why is he so low?
Founding father, progressive for his time and believed in a Democratic Republic
Underrated, brought this country back to prominence in the world.
I voted for Coolidge because he was the last real Republican, if you're going by todays definition of the party. Every "Republican" President since him has followed a very distorted version of the party's platform. And while Presidents such as Lincoln and Roosevelt were Republicans, the party was much different back then than it is now. Presidents like Lincoln, T. Roosevelt, and Eisenhower would, most likely, be Democrats today. Just like Clinton and Obama were much more moderate on the issues than their opponents realize, and weren't true Democrats.
His hands-off leadership producing seven years of prosperity, peace, and balanced budgets. Now I can barely remember an America that wasn't at war.
Had one of the strongest economies ever.
He had the economy booming.
Wasn't in office for a whole long time, but was a good man. His wife championed a lot of good causes as First Lady, supporting women's rights and mental health.
He was a major fighter against slavery once saying that if a civil war broke out that he could use his presidential powers to end slavery. It might have been where Lincoln got the idea of the emancipation proclamation. He negotiated the end of the War of 1812. He paid off much of the national debt and promoted economic modernization and education. Even after his presidency, the crusade was not over for him. After his presidency, he became a member of the house and continued his career as a representative until he died of a heart attack in 1848.
Served this country in many capacities, his life was dedicated to Public Service.
Opened relations with China, and was the first president to visit. Also visited the Eastern Bloc, visiting Communist Romania under Ceausescu. Created the EPA. If not for Watergate, he would have been remembered as a decent president.
Nixon was a good president. He founded the EPA, Nixon was also well known to being one of the most involved presidents for Nature.But, sadly the Watergate scandal effected his power and trust by an immense amount.
Ended the Viêt Nam War! And was persecuted for the same thing the later president, Obama did. Spied on the opposite party. The difference the media proudly played the video from Obama's spy.
Watergate overshadows his tremendous accomplishments as President.
Not much people give him credit, but under his administration he radically transformed the US government by assigning people in the government based on merit, instead of other things.
He didn't care about himself he made presidents for George Washington And Abraham Lincoln
I never vote the party, but always select the best person for the job. I voted for George W. Bush both times because I thought he was the best person for the job.
Led us through 9-11
