Calvin Coolidge Quotes…Why can’t we have another capitalist like him?
It’s a shame a statist like FDR gets entire chapters of history books dedicated to his “New Deal” crap (which by the way did almost nothing to get us out of the Great Depression. Try World War II), but you’ll be damned to find even a simple paragraph on this brilliant man.
Y’all obviously don’t know that he didn’t do anything for the country. He was a do nothing president and one of the worst their was. FDR brought the US out of the great depression and Coolidge did absolutely nothing worth remembering in the face of other presidents…
My god you are ignorant, aren’t you? Have you ever done an actual study of history or economics? Any? Any at all? Because as far as I can tell you have nothing more than a high school understanding of anything (oh you’re 16 according to your page so much makes sense now…)
Perhaps you might like to actually read books like The Forgotten Man
by Amnity Shlaes or perhaps A Monetary History of the United States by Milton Friedman and Anna Jacobson Schwartz or even just Basic Economics by Thomas Sowell. There you might learn that Coolidge stopped a minor recession in the early 20’s from becoming specifically because he didn’t get involved in the economy. That FDR and his polices made what should have been a recession that should only have lasted a couple years a major depression that lasted for over a decade. Coolidge did everything that a great leader should FDR did everything an idiot would do (did you know he got so bad that even Keynes started telling him he was doing too much…and when Keynes tells you you’re messing with the economy too much…)…also I’m so glad you rushed to the defense of FDR, because a man who sends boat loads of escaping Jews back to Germany to die is so in need of defense from blind followers who would like to ignore not just his crimes against economics but also his crimes against humanity. The real facts are that Coolidge is one of the greatest presidents ever because he understood what worked…and FDR for numerous reasons should be condemned as one of the worst excuses for a human ever.
And on a final note, the history teacher whom you took your bad information from is an idiot and a disgrace to the profession.
