Calvin Coolidge was one of the great US presidents.
Listen to this Coolidge speech from 1924 and you’ll see why he is so often denigrated by today’s elites.
If every US president were like this man, imagine how much better off we’d all be today.

PS: This is my favorite Coolidge story. Don’t know if its true, but I hope it is.
The President and Mrs. Coolidge were in separate parties touring a large chicken farm.
Mrs. Coolidge’s entourage happened upon a rooster getting very amorous with a chicken. The first lady was impressed and asked the farmer if this was a once a day event or was the rooster capable of repeat performances. The farmer assured Mrs Coolidge that indeed the rooster could carry out his duties several times daily.
Mrs. Coolidge turned to one of the entourage and said to him “please go and tell THAT to the President!”
When informed by the messenger of the rooster’s prowess, President Coolidge turned to a farmer in his entourage and asked “is this with one chicken or with different chickens?”
The farmer informed President Coolidge that this was indeed all with different chickens – several a day in fact.
President Coolidge turned to the messenger and said “please go and tell THAT to Mrs Coolidge.”
