Publicidade

John Calvin Coolidge, Jr. foi o 30º presidente dos Estados Unidos. Um advogado Republicano de Vermont, Coolidge aos poucos subiu na política de Massachusetts até tornar-se governador. Sua conduta durante a Greve dos Policiais de Boston em 1919 lhe deu proeminência nacional e uma reputação de homem de medidas decisivas. Pouco depois, em 1920, ele foi eleito o 29º vice-presidente dos Estados Unidos, ascendendo à presidência após a repentina morte do presidente Warren G. Harding em 1923. Reeleito em 1924, ele ganhou a reputação de conservador e de alguém de poucas palavras.

Coolidge restaurou a confiança do público na Casa Branca após os escândalos que marcaram a administração de seu antecessor, deixando o cargo com certa popularidade. Como um de seus biógrafos escreveu, "Ele incorporava os espíritos e esperanças da classe média, conseguia interpretar seus anseios e expressar suas opiniões. A prova mais convincente de sua força foi que ele representou o gênio da média". Coolidge elogiou em 1928 a conquista da prosperidade generalizada, dizendo "Os requisitos de existência passaram além do padrão de necessidade para a região de luxo". Alguns posteriormente o criticaram como parte de um governo laissez-faire. Sua reputação ressurgiu durante a presidência de Ronald Reagan, porém a avaliação decisiva de sua administração ainda está dividida entre aqueles que aprovam sua redução dos programas governamentais e aqueles que acreditam que seu governo deveria ter se envolvido mais na regulação e controle da economia.

„Let us keep our desire to help other lands as a great and broad principle, not to help in one place and do harm in another, but to render assistance everywhere.“

—  Calvin Coolidge
1920s, The Genius of America (1924), Context: This is the main thought which your presence here brings to my mind. Let us maintain all the high ideals which have been characteristic of our different races at home. Let us keep our desire to help other lands as a great and broad principle, not to help in one place and do harm in another, but to render assistance everywhere. Let us remember also that the best method of promoting this action is by giving undivided allegiance to America, maintaining its institutions, supporting its Government, and, by leaving it internally harmonious, making it eternally powerful in promoting a reign of justice and mercy throughout the earth.

„Our American government was the result of an effort to establish institutions under which the people as a whole should have the largest possible advantages. Class and privilege were outlawed, freedom and opportunity were guaranteed. They undertook to provide conditions under which service would be adequately rewarded, and where the people would own their own property and control their own government. They had no other motive. They were actuated by no other purpose.“

1920s, Authority and Religious Liberty (1924), Context: Our American government was the result of an effort to establish institutions under which the people as a whole should have the largest possible advantages. Class and privilege were outlawed, freedom and opportunity were guaranteed. They undertook to provide conditions under which service would be adequately rewarded, and where the people would own their own property and control their own government. They had no other motive. They were actuated by no other purpose. If we are to maintain what they established, it is important to understand the foundation on which they built, and the claims by which they justified the sovereign rights and royal estate of every American citizen.

„In doing all this we found that, though of many different nationalities, our people had a spiritual bond. They were all Americans.“

—  Calvin Coolidge
1920s, Toleration and Liberalism (1925), Context: In a conflict which engaged all the major nations of the earth and lasted for a period exceeding four years, there could be no expectation of material gains. War in its very essence means destruction. Never before were contending peoples so well equipped with every kind of infernal engine calculated to spread desolation on land and over the face of the deep. Our country is only but now righting itself and beginning a moderate but steady recovery from the great economic loss which it sustained. That tremendous debt must be liquidated through the laborious toil of our people. Modern warfare becomes more and more to mean utter loss, destruction, and desolation of the best that there is of any people, its valiant youth and its accumulated treasure. If our country secured any benefit, if it met with any gain, it must have been in moral and spiritual values. It must be not because it made its fortune but because it found its soul. Others may disagree with me, but in spite of some incidental and trifling difficulties it is my firm opinion that America has come out of the war with a stronger determination to live by the rule of righteousness and pursue the course of truth and justice in both our domestic and foreign relations. No one can deny that we have protected the rights of our citizens, laid a firmer foundation for our institutions of liberty, and made our contribution to the cause of civilization and humanity. In doing all this we found that, though of many different nationalities, our people had a spiritual bond. They were all Americans.

„There is abundant room here for the preservation and development of the many divergent virtues that are characteristic of the different races which have made America their home. They ought to cling to all these virtues and cultivate them tenaciously.“

—  Calvin Coolidge
1920s, The Genius of America (1924), Context: It is the natural and correct attitude of mind for each of us to have regard for our own race and the place of our own origin. There is abundant room here for the preservation and development of the many divergent virtues that are characteristic of the different races which have made America their home. They ought to cling to all these virtues and cultivate them tenaciously. It is my own belief that in this land of freedom new arrivals should especially keep up their devotion to religion. Disregarding the need of the individual for a religious life, I feel that there is a more urgent necessity, based on the requirements of good citizenship and the maintenance of our institutions, for devotion to religion in America than anywhere else in the world. One of the greatest dangers that beset those coming to this country, especially those of the younger generation, is that they will fall away from the religion of their fathers, and never become attached to any other faith.
