Warning: History follows. You might actually learn something. Grover Cleveland was the last U.S. president with a valid claim to be known as a classical liberal. (By the time “Silent Cal” Coolidge became president, the big-government horse was already out of the barn, and Ronald Reagan as president was as much the big-government problem as [...]
In the last week I’ve read at least four syndicated columns which contained the following argument: were the Congress to resist raising the debt “ceiling,” the full faith and credit of the United States Government would be endangered.
