I admire grassroots fundraising, but wonder about a week-long moneybomb in honor of Calvin Coolidge. Ron Paul is sui generis, and far greater than Cal in domestic and foreign affairs. Is it really necessary to hark back to some former prez, especially one who was a wholly owned subsidiary of Wall Street and the big banks? If this sort of commemoration is irresistible, why not our first black president, Warren G. Harding? He was far better on war, civil liberties, and the economy, and did not help set up the Great Depression by serving as J.P. Morgan's errand boy.
