Warnings still Final words from Calvin Coolidge who left us in 1933 but who still haunts us with his words of wisdom. 1. “It is difficult for men in high office to avoid the malady of self-delusion.” 2. “Business can stand anything better than uncertainty.” 3. The post office ought to be self-supporting.” 4. “Will market troubles enlarge the government in a fashion that would prove irreversible once prosperity ( after the Great Depression) returned?” Beginning with Herbert Hoover and continuing through FDR and successive Presidents, the road to perdition has been paved by the undoing of Coolidge’s balanced budget, tax cuts and hands-off government.
