Today marks the 175th anniversary of the birth of Grover Cleveland, America's 22nd and 24th President. Like all our presidents, Cleveland was far from perfect, but he towers far above even the best of the rest of our chief executives. Along with Jefferson, Cleveland is one of my favorite presidents. And even better than Jefferson, Cleveland did an outstanding job of standing for sound money, sound foreign policy, and the principles of a free society.
If you are unfamiliar with this great patriot or just want a good refresher, The Foundation for Economic Education offers a great rundown covering the man and his accomplishments.
Once again, happy birthday, Mr. Cleveland. May a our generation come to revere the principles for which you fought.
