John Quincy Adams is a close 2nd to Washington...

Because Adams made a great speech in 1820 about U.S foreign policy.

Adams said that we should not go abroad searching for "monsters to destroy" but rather mind our own business and let the world act as it may.

We would lead by example, and short of our being aggressed by another nation, wars and interventions would NOT be a part of our policy.

J.Q. Adams was most excellent on this subject.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul
