All the Presidents of the United States
With the election that we just had on November 6th, I know that many of us put in our votes and made our voice heard. With this recent election, it made me realize how many presidents we have had since our very first president George Washington. Each president has run the office in their own way and most can say in both a positive way and negative way.
With every president that the United State's has had, we have gone through so many different situations and a lot of changes over the many years. Look at how many laws we started off with when Washington was president, our country was barely getting started, there really wasn't a lot to consider but as the population grew and we started to need more laws and each president that was elected had their own idea of what should be law and what shouldn't be a law. With every president, we know that not everyone will be happy but imagine how everyone else felt in the earlier generations and centuries when the first few presidents started their job.
Each president made either wise choices or choices that they probably wished they may have not made at one point or another. If you could go back in the past and bring back one of the presidents, whether it is our recently re-elected president or the other ones that came before him, who would you bring back? Do you think that they would make wise choices with the economy that we have now?
I know that this may seem weird because a movie was just made about this one president, but I have always looked up to Abraham Lincoln and how he ran the country. He tried his best to make everyone equal and abolish slavery. Yes, there was a great battle in which many soldiers gave their life but some can say that it was worth it. He may not have been a handsome or good looking president but he was able to really attract the attention of the people by how he valued life and how he wanted to improve it. It is sad that he got shot but to me he was a good president and did the best job that he could.
Everyone has their choice of who would run the country better but looking at all the former presidents we have had, who would be the right one with what is happening now in our economy?
