Calvin Coolidge

18 Oct

When thinking about the past Presidents of the United States, Calvin Coolidge is one of the last that come to mind for many.  This is truly unfortunate, especially for conservatives.  Here is actual video and audio from a small speech delivered by Coolidge in 1924, the first ever recorded for a President.  It gets really good around 2 minutes.

86 years ago, Calvin Coolidge told to the American people that their taxes were too high and that their liberties were were being trampled upon.  I ask you, does the current administration think about the individual when it proposes raising taxes or when it forces socialized medicine upon the people?  The answer, simply, is No.

Thank you,  President Coolidge, for giving conservatives another point in history with which to reference the intent of our Founders.

    Reese, thanks for that post about the underappreciated Calvin Coolidge, who was not so silent when he defended the Constitution against federal power encroachment. Check out my own “mostly Coolidge” blog sometime at http://kaiology.wordpress.com/ I’d be honored to have you visit!
