"Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God."
- Matthew 5:9
Which US presidents shall be called sons of God? Lincoln for ending the Civil War, Wilson for starting the League of Nations, or Reagan for tearing down the Wall? Not exactly, at least according to Ivan Eland, author of Recarving Rushmore: Ranking the Presidents on Peace, Prosperity, and Liberty.
Congressman Ron Paul interviews Mr. Eland in this very interesting interview. It's worth an hour of your time if you're interested in evaluating American history through a peaceful, libertarian lens.
Give yourself a peace pat on the back if you guessed John Tyler or Grover Cleveland.
