FEE President Lawrence W. Reed recently took the stage at George Mason University in Arlington, Virginia, to discuss the American Presidency in a presentation titled, "My Favorite President." Reed spoke about several presidents from the nineteenth century, including Tyler, Garfield, and Cleveland--all of whom exemplified limited-government and free-market principles.
These so-called "do-nothing" presidents fought to prevent the growth and expansion of the federal government during their terms. Reed argued that these presidents are as much a part of the liberty movement as we are today. See the whole talk below.
