Of those I'd pick Reagan. I like his style of optimistic conservatism.

However, if Thatcher was on that list I would have picked her.

Joe Clark is a Liberal in blue clothing. Harper talked a conservative line for a while, but has not practiced what he preached. Bush, again is a big government, big spending Democrat.

Not many actual conservatives on your list.

I've no experience with Stanfield, but I know enough about Clark to know that he's no conservative; Bush started out reasonably well, but he's proven far too authoritarian and free-spending for my liking in most areas (but he may well not have done so if it were not for 9/11). I was happy with Manning for his populism, provided he kept his chosen religion/superstition out of the public arena, and ditto for Reagan. Harper has done a number of things that turned his back on the principles of conservatism, but overall, he hasn't done TOO badly, and I will continue to vote for a Harper-led CPC government unless they backslide further.

Gerry Nicholls would have been a good choice to put on the survey, maybe Mike Harris. A year ago I might even have suggested The Garth, but times have changed. Ezra Levant should definitely have been a choice.

Of course, I am concentrating on Canadian conservatism.

Manning for sure. His grassroots conservatism is responsible for where the Canadian conservative movement is today. Manning had vision and stuck to his principles. He continues to contribute, as seen with organization such as the Manning Centre.

Interesting that Thatcher was did not make the cut, but I guess this is a North America list...

I picked Regan for his no nonsense approach. He beleived in his principles and stuck to his guns.
Thatcher as well she had the biggest balls of them all.

For Canadians it has to be Preston. He was a great idea man, I wish he could have sold it better though.

Of the list I picked Ronald Regan for his stance of taking his iron fist stamping out communism atleast for a little while. If only Regan had more time as President the Communists there would have in time been stamped out in China as well, & the world would likely have been more Conservative. margaret Thatcher & Ronald Regan would have made one hell of a team. My favorite all time Conservative is President James Madison the father of the United States Constution.
