Different leaders often have varied opinions on leadership, which in turn influence the leaders’ views on issues affecting their followers. This is often even more significant for nation states in which case the leadership in the country could have profound effects on the welfare of the citizens in the long term. The United States has had different presidents in its history since the declaration of independence, and only one period throughout its history did the country experience a form of revolt from the public’s dissatisfaction with the political conditions in the country, in effect leading to the Civil War. Notably, different presidents in the country may have had varied opinions about leadership and the role of democracy, but have all been successful enough in reducing the chances of adversities associated with differences between the public and the political class.
