Calvin Coolidge

Calvin Coolidge was the 30th President of the United States who was first elected as the Vice President in 1920. He succeeded to the presidency after the death of President Warren G. Harding. A Coolidge biography says, “He embodied the spirit and hopes of the middle class, could interpret their longings and express their opinions. That he did represent the genius of the average is the most convincing proof of his strength.” In the book “Give Me Liberty”, he has been quoted saying, “The chief business of the American people is business.” In this video he gives the reasons as to why he wanted to cut down public expense. He expressed his vision of freedom to people where people would be working less for the government and more for themselves so that they could enjoy the fruits of their own labor.
