My favorite leaders include:Teddy Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Józef Piłsudski, Lech/Jarosław Kaczyński, John Paul II. All but two of them (Jarosław and Bush) are dead. The last four are leaders that have made a significant impact on Poland, Europe, and the World. The first five were probably the greatest Presidents of the United States. They were fiscally conservative and favored American business and low taxes on all citizens.
