From my childhood to the present date, I can remember the following presidents of the United States:
- Dwight Eisenhower (1953 – 1961)
- John F. Kennedy (1961 – Nov 22, 1963)
- Lyndon Johnson (1963 – 1969)
- Richard Nixon (1969 – 1974)
- Gerald Ford (1974 – 1977)
- Jimmy Carter (1977 – 1981)
- Ronald Reagan (1981 – 1989)
- George Bush Sr. (1989 – 1993)
- William J. Clinton (1993 – 2001)
- George Bush Jr. (2001 – 2009)
- Barack Obama (2009 – 2017)
Donald Trump (2017 – )
At the time of this writing, it is March 2020. We are in the midst of the presidential campaign process. Somebody has to be nominated as the Democratic candidate. That person will run for the highest office in this country and whoever he or she is, they hope “We the People” will vote for them and unseat our current Republican president, Donald Trump. Whenever this time in American history comes around, i.e. the political process of choosing a new fearless leader, I am always thankful.
- I’m thankful Americans have the right to VOTE.
- I’m thankful our POTUS is not a despicable king or queen who can’t be dethroned or worse a ruthless dictator who nobody can get rid of.
- I’m thankful the U.S. Constitution limits the president’s term in office to 4 years and that the president can only serve for 2 terms.
- I’m thankful I have survived all of the presidents as far back as I can remember and that our country is still standing.
- I’m thankful that I’m living and American.
Found some really cool tweets that reflect interesting moments in time. The history covered in tweets is during the timeline from Eisenhower to Johnson. When Nixon took office I was attending university and I became discouraged, dissatisfied, and disinterested in American politics. I’ve never really quite regained my enthusiasm and interest. But I didn’t bury my head in the sand either. America is still the land that I love. God Bless America.
