Countries still base their governments around his teachings. He was able to inspire a large mass of people to follow his beliefs, and go to war for him. His religion is still the fastest growing in the world, so my regime would always be gaining new followers if I had Muhammad. If that isn't a politically powerful quality, I don't know what is.

I select Che Guevera.

He served as minister of industry, president of the national bank, and he was well known as a revolutionary that was a big part of overthrowing Fulgencio Batista. He also was involved in Guatemala's social reforms under its president.



Quote:
Ernesto "Che" Guevara (June 14,[1] 1928 October 9, 1967), commonly known as Che Guevara, El Che, or simply Che, was an Argentine Marxist revolutionary, politician, author, physician, military theorist, and guerrilla leader. After his death, his stylized image became a ubiquitous countercultural symbol worldwide.

As a young medical student, Guevara traveled throughout Latin America and was transformed by the endemic poverty he witnessed. His experiences and observations during these trips led him to conclude that the region's ingrained economic inequalities were an intrinsic result of monopoly capitalism, neo-colonialism, and imperialism, with the only remedy being world revolution. This belief prompted his involvement in Guatemala's social reforms under President Jacobo Arbenz, whose eventual CIA-assisted overthrow solidified Guevara's radical ideology.

Later, in Mexico, he met Fidel Castro and joined his 26th of July Movement. In December 1956, he was among the revolutionaries who invaded Cuba under Castro's leadership with the intention of overthrowing U.S.-backed Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. Guevara soon rose to prominence among the insurgents, was promoted to Comandante, and played a pivotal role in the successful guerrilla campaign that deposed Batista.[3] Following the Cuban revolution, Guevara reviewed the appeals of those convicted as war criminals during the revolutionary tribunals.[4] Later he served as minister of industry and president of the national bank, before traversing the globe as a diplomat to meet an array of world leaders on behalf of Cuban socialism. He was also a prolific writer and diarist, composing a seminal manual on the theory and practice of guerrilla warfare, along with an acclaimed memoir about his motorcycle journey across South America. Guevara left Cuba in 1965 to incite revolutions first in an unsuccessful attempt in Congo-Kinshasa and then in Bolivia, where he was captured with the help of the CIA and executed.

Both notorious for his harsh discipline and revered for his unwavering dedication to his revolutionary doctrines, Guevara remains an admired, controversial, and significant historical figure. As a result of his death and romantic visage, along with his invocation to armed class struggle and desire to create the consciousness of a "new man" driven by "moral" rather than "material" incentives,[5] Guevara evolved into a quintessential icon of leftist-inspired movements as well as a global merchandising sensation. He has been mostly venerated and occasionally reviled in a multitude of biographies, memoirs, books, essays, documentaries, songs, and films. Time Magazine named him one of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century,[6] while an Alberto Korda photograph of him entitled Guerrillero Heroico (shown), was declared "the most famous photograph in the world."[7]

That's what they said about Vincent Chase's Medellin though, and look how that turned out.

Henry VIII (28 June 1491 – 28 January 1547) was Lord of Ireland, later King of Ireland and claimant to the Kingdom of France, from 21 April 1509 until his death. Henry was the second monarch of the House of Tudor, succeeding his father, Henry VII. Henry VIII was a significant figure in the history of the English monarchy. Although in the first parts of his reign he energetically suppressed the Reformation of the Roman Catholic Church, which had been building steam since John Wycliffe of the 14th century, he is more often known for his ecclesiastical struggles with Rome. These struggles ultimately led to him separating the Anglican Church from Roman authority, the Dissolution of the Monasteries, and establishing the English monarch as the Supreme Head of the Church of England. Although some claim he became a Protestant on his death-bed, he advocated Catholic ceremony and doctrine throughout his life; royal backing of the English Reformation was left to his heirs, Edward VI and Elizabeth I, while his daughter Mary I fought to return papal authority over the church. Henry also oversaw the legal union of England and Wales (see Laws in Wales Acts 1535–1542). He is noted for being married six times.

Default Re: All Time Political Powers Draft

I choose: Siddhārtha Gautama: Founder of Buddhism and supreme Buddha.

I should have picked him over the Dalai Lama. He was a prince before he became enlightened so he qualifies. Every nation needs a religion/spiritual foundation and the Buddha is the best person to provide this role.

I was going to pick him with my last pick but I realized he had no actual political power, and was merely a teacher, unless you want to say Jesus had political power. Jesus was related to King David, same way Buddha was a prince. Unless you think Deepak Chopra has political power, you should repick.

Being related through blood doesn't make you a prince. Buddha was actually an aristocrat. Jesus was a carpenter.

My nation needs spiritual guidance, and the Buddha is the best leader for that position.

True that. Also who am I to complain, I got Pope Urban II and Muhammad, keep Buddha it's a good pick, I'm guessing though that perhaps others in this draft will be against it. (because they didn't think up the genius pick themselves)

Hotsizzle on the clock!

vapid, I accept that pick even though it has some question marks. Buddha had very little political power, I don't think it's a wise pick but again, I accept it.
