100 Million Patriots Standing

Calvin Coolidge quote....you will love this patriots!

January 10, 2013

" About the Declaration there is a finality that is exceedingly restful. It is often asserted that the world has made a great deal of progress since 1776, that we have had new thoughts and new experiences which have given us a great advance over the people of that day, and that we may therefore very well discard their conclusions for something more modern. But that reasoning can not be applied to this great charter. If all men are created equal, that is final. If they are endowed with inalienable rights, that is final. If governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, that is final. No advance, no progress can be made beyond these propositions. If anyone wishes to deny their truth or their soundness, the only direction in which he can proceed historically is not forward, but backward toward the time when there was no equality, no rights of the individual, no rule of the people. Those who wish to proceed in that direction can not lay claim to progress. They are reactionary. Their ideas are not more modern, but more ancient, than those of the Revolutionary fathers."- Calvin Coolidge, 1926, from a speech commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.

Silent Cal waxed quite poetic to a patriots ears! It very difficult for me to understand why a generation given so much freedom and opportunity is so quick to exchange our great republic for the tyrannical chains of big brother.Such a precious gift is being given away without a whimper!

Incredible versions of this patriot. How well we should be listening to what has been accomplished before and how far we have come from those who were elected and served with honor in the past.

Ah yes Cal....

The left's whipping boy... The right's great states man.

Part of Cal's greatness can be measured by how Reagan quoted him on many occasions.

Cal had a superior appoach to the economy which history proves was correct.

Ask at one time, "What are your plans on getting the country's economy going again." He said, I'm not going to do anything, I'm just getting out of the way. The American people will figure it out.

Rose: Thanks for the quote. Here are a few others:

Collecting more taxes than is absolutely necessary is legalized robbery.

There is but a fixed quantity of wealth in this country at any fixed time. The only way that we can all secure more of it is to create more.

Good government cannot be bought, it has to be given. Office has great opportunities for doing wrong, but equal chance for doing right.

Coolidge rarely spoke, but when he did he generally said great things. He was the last pro free market president
