“The Republican Ideal” by Mark Steyn

“The Republican Ideal” by Mark Steyn

After his recent visit to Plymouth Notch, read the indomitable Mark Steyn’s thoughts on the home and legacy of President Coolidge. An excerpt reads, “I do believe it’s the coolest grave of any head of state I’ve ever stood in front of. It moves me far more than the gaudier presidential memorials. ‘We draw our presidents from the people,’ said Coolidge. ‘I came from them. I wish to be one of them again.’ He lived the republican ideal most of our political class merely pays lip service to.” All too true, Mr. Steyn.  It is one of the most powerful reasons to take another look when it comes to Calvin Coolidge.
