Mr. Lincoln, I wish you were here . . .

Dinner Question!

Who is your favorite President and why?

Colton - George Washington, 'cause he was first, and he got to make all the laws.

Chance - Abe Lincoln, because he freed the slaves.

Matt - Ronald Reagan, because he said "tear down this wall", and worked so hard to end the Cold War.

Heather - George Washington, because he didn't seek the office, was respected and nominated by his peers, and led the country to devise a system of government under God.

PS - as for the title, a little bit of Hank:
Mr Lincoln, I wish you were here.
The Republic's changed a lot in a hundred years.
And I don't think it's working like you planned.
Hey, Mr. Lincoln, we sure could use a hand.

This is a great discussion question. I like each one of your reasons, too.
