Wanted: A True Statesman

Take a note of this quote from Calvin Coolidge and compare this short speech with what OBAMA spews forth this Thursday. I will wager that this short quote from Coolidge will say more than anything Obama’s teleprompted speech will evoke.

"I want the people of America to be able to work less for the government and more for themselves. I want them to have the rewards of their own industry. This is the chief meaning of freedom. Until we can reestablish a condition under which the earnings of the people can be kept by the people, we are bound to suffer a very severe and distinct curtailment of our liberty." –President Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)

Coolidge like Reagan believed in the Enterprise called the American people. He believed that if the citizen was free to engage in pursuits of happiness unhindered by a bloated government leviathan. If the American citizen can engage in private enterprise without being coerced to redirect their energies to fund government waste, fraud and abuse, our economy would not be running in negative numbers. For the first time since 1945 the American economy did not produce any jobs. And all this after all the trillions of dollars Obama spent to stimulate it.
