John Adams by starwarsisme John Adams by starwarsisme
I made this out of boredom. So, yeah, my scanner is still shot to shit, and I can't upload any of my real drawings and artwork.
Partly inspired by David McChulloh's book and the HBO miniseries.

So, here is John Adams, second Presient of the United States and the voice of the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson was his best friend.
One of my favorite presidents.

Partly inspired by ~RafkinsWarning picture of Jefferson.

Me too. Adams was the kind of person who didn't take crap, and also told the truth, no matter how hurtful it was...but it was also his Achillies heel, and made him very unpopular. He only got the presidency by 3 votes in Congress.

He was funny and I enjoyed him and Jefferson as buddies until that didn't work out so well. I like Jefferson about equally.

They reconnected near their deaths, though. Jefferson is alright, a little to serious sometimes, but a cool guy none the less.

True.
Jefferson's a hypocrite and a bit of a loon but that's why I love him.

I like Adams because he was disliked, unlike others such as Jefferson, Washington or Franklin, but, he did more contributions to the United States really than all three combined. His administration was faulty, espcially because of the XYZ Affair and the Alien and Sedition Acts, but he did keep the young America out of war with both Britian and the French during the French Revolution Wars.

Adams was just misunderstood. I know what you're saying and I agree. DON'T EVEN TALK ABOUT THE XYZ AFFAIR.
I should freshen up on american history but I know I won't.
