Back to Calvin
Back to Calvin Highly quotable, Calvin Coolidge, new President- elect of the Massachusetts Senate had this to say about Henry Ford doubling pay for workers at his auto plant in 1914. “Large profits mean large pay rolls. ...it may be that the fostering and protection of large aggregations of wealth are the only foundation upon which to build the prosperity of the whole people.” Coolidge felt that laws were not to be invented by politicians or judges, or, most important, righteous prosecutors. He said: “Men do not make laws. They do but discoverer them.” Laws must rest “on the eternal foundations of righteousness.” Define righteousness not by the self-righteous proclamations of liberals based on outright lies, but on the Biblical definition of “doing what is right, godly, upright.” When liberals pontificate like our Mayor Coleman of Columbus who said that “education of our children is the next civil rights movement,” it gives righteousness a false name. Silent Cal who actually spoke and wrote much, would be scandalized.
