"I believe in the American Constitution. I favor the American system of individual enterprise and I am opposed to any general extension of government ownership and control. I believe not only in advocating economy in public expenditure but in its practical application and actual accomplishment. I believe in a reduction and reform of taxation and shall continue my efforts in that direction. I am in favor of protection. I believe in the permanent cost and further limitation of armament. I am opposed to aggressive war. I shall avoid involving ourselves in the political controversies of Europe but I shall do what I can to encourage American citizens and resources to assist in restoring Europe with the sympathetic support of our government. I want agriculture and industry on a sound basis of prosperity and equality. I shall continue to strive for the economic, moral and spiritual welfare of my country. The laws of the land are being and will continue to be enforced." - President Calvin Coolidge
