“Wisdom for our times”

5427345e6d519

Mr. Bill Federer over at The Moral Liberal provides some excellent insights from the most underrated President of the twentieth century, Calvin Coolidge.

Coolidge’s wisdom, competence, and firm grasp of the obvious are qualities not chained to some obsolete and distant past but belong here, at this moment, at this time. They both strengthen our resolve and illuminate our path at this pivotal year of all years. America is determining what it will be, for better or for worse. If we turn away our ears from Coolidge’s instruction, especially when it is still in our power to effect the final outcome, exiling his sober-minded sense of duty and integrity to all (not merely the powerful few), we do not merit honor and greatness but infamy and shame.
