“By reason of what I saw and heard in my early life, I came to have a good working knowledge of the practical side of government. I understood that it consisted of restraints which the people had imposed upon themselves in order to promote the common welfare. As I went about with my father when he collected taxes, I knew that when taxes were laid some one had to work to earn the money to pay them…” – Calvin Coolidge
