Out of all the titans in American history -- Presidents and generals, inventors and entrepreneurs, reformers and revolutionaries -- have you ever wondered who the best of the best were? Well, RWN decided, for the first time in more than 3 years, to email more than 225 right-of-center bloggers to get their opinions.I participated. Go to Hawkin's site to see the top 25 plus some honorable mentions.
Note that submissions were sent in unranked, so the ranking on the list doesn't correlate with how submitters would have ranked these individuals. The rankings on the list just represent how many sumitters included each individual.
Mine that didn't make the top 25:
Patrick Henry: For his advocacy of American revolution and the Bill of Rights and for giving clear voice to the idea that liberty is a fundamental right.
Booker T. Washington: For his emphasis on self-reliance and excellence, for his total rejection of victimhood, and for his commitment to getting people involved in industry.
Douglas MacArthur: For his distinguished service, incredible military leadership during WWII, and his work during the occupation of Japan, especially the writing of the Japanese Constitution.
Sam Walton: For his contributions to industry and for his business model which, contrary to what in-style political activists would like to have everyone believe, greatly helps the poor and has helped to develop economies around the world.
Mine that were in the top 25:
Martin Luther King Jr.
George S. Patton
Who would you have picked?
