Not So Silent Cal

All Posts No Comments

Holy cow, it’s Calvin Coolidge railing against Big Government. But guess what? Coolidge actually slashed taxes enormously and ran a surplus every year in office. (HT2PB)

In the beginning it’s a bit slow, but then it picks up. And be sure to watch Coolidge’s smooth delivery in the beginning. You almost forget the note cards are there.

What a concluding line! “One of the greatest favors that can be bestowed upon the American people, is economy in government.”
