Who Were America’s Most Conservative Presidents?
With Joe Biden and the leftist Democrats firmly in charge of the executive and legislative branches of the federal government, it seems as good time as any to search the history books and compare Presidents of the past, look at their ideologies and records and determine which Chief Executives in America's history were the most conservative.
Con - serv' - uh - tiv: Favoring free enterprise, private ownership, and socially traditional ideas.
A number of political analysts, pundits and writers have opined as to who exactly were our country's most conservative leaders, and many, in putting together that group, tend to start at our post-Civil War leaders. The five that make virtually every one of those lists are Abraham Lincoln, Grover Cleveland, Calvin Coolidge, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump.
But for the sake of our list - and having drawn from a number of others - we decided to start at our nation's beginning and include some of our Founding Fathers.
