As the Cold War peaked in the 1960s, the charismatic president John F Kennedy led America amidst escalating tensions in Vietnam and Cuba. His presidency was cut short when he was assassinated, yet he ranks highly among all presidents.
Ronald Reagan believed politics, morality and religion are inseparable. His Christian upbringing carried on to his Presidentship where he strove for a tolerant society, encouraging all religions.
During his heyday, Ronald Reagan was the emblem for the effort to restore American conservative values, and propagate and integrate these ideals in the constitution through aggressive lawmaking. A cool head on steady shoulders, he survived an assassination attempt and led the country through a period of great turmoil.
As Civil Service Commissioner, Theodore Roosevelt cracked into the prevailing corrupt spoils system. Aided by the Pendleton Act, he fought fearlessly to uphold the practice of appointment on merit.
Theodore Roosevelt led America by the mantra, “The life that is worth living, and the only life that is worth living, is the life of effort, the life of effort to attain what is worth striving for.”
