Write in candidates are allowed.

Winner of this poll will enter playoff bracket against the winners of the other 3 polls and the top two overall runners up will get a wild card berth. Seeding is based on total votes. Older candidates win tiebreakers for seeding.

If all the men on that list had a vote, they would cast it for George Washington. Which is why he was unanimously elected as the president. The first president who never ran for office. He was chosen by the people and almost declined the offer. One of a small handful of men world history who have turned down the opportunity to be king. The guy is/was/forever will be, the man.

Ben Franklin was an 18th century gangsta. He invented ****, was a hardcore rebel against the British, influenced our laws and legislation, got nominated into the chess HOF in 1999 like 200 years after he died and if you want to believe it, he macked on bitches til he died of syphilis.

I wish I actually cared to learn how to photoshop because I'd shop his face on one of those most interesting man in the world memes
