I was just reading some Calvin Coolidge quotes and it made me feel like I was born eighty years too late. Coolidge was the last president who governed in accordance with the Tenth Amendment. I'll just reproduce a few quotes here.
Collecting more taxes than is absolutely necessary is legalized robbery.
We do not need more intellectual power, we need more moral power. We do not need more knowledge, we need more character. We do not need more government, we need more culture. We do not need more law, we need more religion. We do not need more of the things that are seen, we need more of the things that are unseen. If the foundation be firm, the foundation will stand.
If you see ten troubles coming down the road, you can be sure that nine will run into the ditch before they reach you.
Perhaps one of the most important accomplishments of my administration has been minding my own business.
