Coolidge

Extrait d’un discours du président républicain Calvin Coolidge, prononcé à une époque où un politicien pouvait parler de liberté sans être qualifié d’extrémiste…

« I want the people of America to be able to work less for the government and more for themselves. I want them to have the rewards of their own industry. This is the chief meaning of freedom. Until we can reestablish a condition under which the earnings of the people can be kept by the people, we are bound to suffer a very severe and distinct curtailment of our liberty. »
