According to this article on the BBC site:

"More than 2.4 million Americans cast their vote by phone, text or e-mail in the poll, organised by the Discovery Channel and AOL."

1 Ronald Reagan
2 Abraham Lincoln
3 Martin Luther King
4 George Washington
5 Benjamin Franklin

LOL !!

If thats the best they have to offer were SAFE!!

I beg you Reagan?!?!

Come on the guy was barely literate and accused by the world court of terrorsim (nicaragua), he is their greatest in their opinion?
The mind boggles... however if Reagan is the cream of America then we have absolutely nothing to worry about, come on the man was barely literate.

In England we voted for Churchill, a man who tried to revolutiopnise two world wars as well as being both a war and peace time primeminister.

In America a B movie actor who was upstaged by a chimp, whos achievements could be counted on the thumbs of a blind butcher wins.

Says too much really.

Well what can you say....Americans love the dead prezidents

Yehaaaaw, cowboy Ronnie is coming to town !

Lets check his legacy:


"This opium flower honors President Reagan's contribution to the explosive growth of the Afghan heroin industry in the 1980s through his unconditional support for the most extreme Islamic fundamentalists...


"His enthusiastic support for the torture-prone, anti-Semitic generals - magical men who had the ability to make dissidents and their relatives "disappear"...


"The Skull Bag recognizes the Reagan administration's unstinting support for Pol Pot's assaults on Cambodians from 1981 to 1989, as well as Reagan's policy of recognizing the exiled Khmer Rouge at the U.N. as the legitimate government of Cambodia. "

Yes its the holiday in Cambodia,
its tough kid but its life....

4. Costa Rica
5. El Salvador
6. Honduras
7. Guatemala
Haiti, Kurdistan, Laos,Lebanon, Nicaragua, Zaire

and last but not least: SOUTH AFRICA ! Oh how he loved SA !!!


He sure was a busy president

LOL this just proves most people don't think for themselves anymore.

The Martin Luther King one is the only one the makes any sense.

What's so special about the presidents? You just needs lots and lots of cash and lots of influential friends. Brains or common sense not necessary. A desire to expand the powers of those with the most a plus. An ability to ignore your conscience, and a belief that anybody not in your circle are for your use and expendable is necessary.
But most of all you have to have BLUE blood....or at least a genetic connection to one of the ruling families. The same families that have rules us serfs for hundreds of years...

You must be born American - and
raise a mountain of cash like Bush

In practical terms, you should also have enormous sums of money. The Bush-Cheney ticket spent $186m campaigning in 2000, while the Gore-Lieberman duo spent $120m - and still lost.

This time round, Bush will have spent over $300 million and Kerry more than $270 million (including $75 million each of public funds) by the time November comes around.

From "How to become US president" (unfortunately the only place I could find what I was looking for with a quick search.)

So Arnie '08 or '12 only sounds stupid but is probably a favourite when you think about the mindset of 1 quarter of America (only 1 half votes).
Arnie, a catch phrase, some red, white & blue and a lot of corporate sponsership and he'll fly in.

The whole 'constitution' thing is no biggy and you know if they have written up drafts already, they've also started planning the campaign details, hired the writers, graphic artists, image consultants etc etc to make Arnie a true American Fuhrer puppet.

Well, this Regan poll was done by AOL who owns most of America's media. Maybe they fixed it so a 'movie star president' would take the Number 1 spot?
Just further ingraining of accepting Arnie the American Patriot in a few years?

In Canada we voted Tommy C. Douglas - father of socialized medicine (and Kiefer Sutherland's grandpa) as our greatest Canadian. A truly wonderful man with great compassion for the working man. Kind of shows where we're at, eh?

I really think Abraham Lincoln was a wonderful American....he tried to break the stranglehold the private bankers had on America through the issuance of interest-free Greenbacks. And he managed to end slavery...though that was not the primary aim of the war. Of course, any president who tried to fight the banks was either assasinated, or had attempts made on their lives. Check out this thread and watch the documentary The Money Masters. One by one Let's pop the bubble of ignorance...

OH Yeah!

Just Love that Iran - Contra Affair!

United States President Ronald Reagan's administration was involved in the sale of arms to Iran, which was engaged in a bloody war with its neighbor Iraq from 1980 to 1988, and was said to have diverted the proceeds to Nicaraguan Contras rebelling against the leftist Sandinista government of Nicaragua. The sales thus had a dual goal: appeasing Iran, which had influence with terrorist groups holding American hostages in Lebanon, and covertly funding a guerrilla war aimed at toppling Nicaragua's pro-Communist government, which was backed by Cuba and the Soviet Union.

Gotta Love Prezident Ronnie!

Maybe its because he was a "Great" HollyWood Actor?

Juts Gotta Love when those good Ol' COWBOYS take Charge of the Capitol Hill and start that "This Town is too Big for Both of Us" attitude.

I am down with Number 3 Mister Martin Luther King - look the Signature Below.
