During World War 1, President Woodrow Wilson led the nation through the war, even though he never wanted to. As soon as he did declare war, he tried to find a way to end it. He had the first effective draft of 1917, set up the War Industries Board, and urged Congress to pass the Lever Act. He helped… to create the Fourteen Points, which included the League of Nations (the model of the United Nations) and the Treaty of Versailles. ( Full Answer )
He began bankrupting America by signing the Federal Reserve Act. This also introduced the IRS, which would tax the income of citizens to pay off the interest on US government loans. The constitutionality of the IRS has been in question based on the fact that it was never properly ratified, and that …it may be seen as a violation of the 4th and 5th amendments. Here is what Wilson said shortly after signing the Federal Reserve Act: "I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world - no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men." Wilson had a serious stroke late in his second term and could not do much of anything after that. People said his wife ran the country and indeed she did control access to him and decide what he should see and what to ignore. ( Full Answer )

To answer the question if President Wilson was indeed a good leaderwe must first explore the definition of what is a leader? Themilitary defines this as an individual who has the ability toinfluence others to accomplish a goal for the better good of theunit. It also describes the qualities a leader …needs to encompasssuch as respect, selfless service, loyalty and duty. As I exploredthe traits of Woodrow Wilson, I have to unreservedly state that heindeed was a good leader. Wilson's life created the man long before his Presidency. Anintellect and a man of religious values, it appears that he wasmore prepared to handle the domestic rather than the internationalissues that arouse during his presidency. I do not believe thatanyone can doubt he had a desire to create policy that stood forequality among the common American. Early in his first term, Wilson set his sights toward reformationagainst trustees, banks and tariffs. As any good leader would,Wilson took the accomplishment of these goals in his own hands.Addressing Congress and moved by Wilson's aggressive leadership,the House swiftly passed the Underwood Tariff Bill, which providedfor a substantial reduction of rates. In addition, Wilson achievedThe Federal Reserve Act. This red-letter achievement carried thenation with flying banners through the financial crises of theFirst World War of 1914-1918. It appeared that Wilson was a refreshing change of pace after Taftand Roosevelt. However, it wasn't long until his President hat ofdomestic policy was replaced with the Commander in Chief hat ofwaging war internationally. A peace-loving President, it wasevident at first that Wilson had no stomach for leading a disunitednation into war. He well remembered the mistake in 1812 of hisfellow Princetonian, James Madison. For those who question his leadership ability it is during theinfancy of World War I that they will surely turn to in order toprove their point. In a society that has seen great leaders such asRoosevelt, Regan, MacArthur and countless others, the soft stancethat Wilson took initially could be seen as a weakness. There is nodoubt that Wilson hoped a series of increasingly strong notes wouldbring the German warlords sharply to book. There are even storiesthat Wilson was so worried about being a lame duck president in atime of great international tensions that he drew up a plan that ifelected for a second term of Presidency, he would appointed Hughessecretary of state. After which Wilson and the vice president wouldresign, and Hughes would thus succeed immediately to thepresidency. Weather these stories are true is uncertain. However, what isbeyond doubt is the outcome of his decision to have America joinits allies in a war with Germany - Victory. What many may notunderstand is the division that was within the United States onsuch a decision. There is no doubt that the United Stated wanted toremain neutral. War is an ugly thing and Wilson knew this. Hestated in his war message "It is a fearful thing to lead this greatpeaceful people into war." In addition to the division within thestates was a potential war with Mexico. The fact is that the decision of war is one that will always be metwith scrutiny. There is no doubt that Wilson had mixed emotions inhis final decision and prolonged this decision as long as possible.As a Soldier I would question a President who did not weight otheroptions and instead carelessly placed the lives of America citizensin harm's way. But what shows Wilson to be a true leader is hisability to influence the nation to embrace his decision andaccomplish the goal of German defeat for the better good of thenation. ( Full Answer )
