really liked it

John Quincy Adam's was an extraordinary man. I think many don't give him his due as a diplomat, president and later congressman. He devoted his life to our country. Not only did he contribute to the founding (at an incredibly young age) he helped to secure the United States standing in the world when we were a foundling country. His contributions to ending slavery are sadly overlooked.

Both he and his father are examples of integrity that modern day politicians should model themselves after.
