Warren G. Harding promised the American people that they would return to normalcy. He had a conservative stand on issues like taxes and the war. He believed in "making no enemies" and keeping the peace. Even though I don't have a conservative outlook on politics I believe that trying to keep peace was the best thing at the time. Harding set the standard for lowering taxes in the 1920s.

Warren G. Harding promised America mainly to restore normalcy, and in other words, make America great again. "America's present need is not heroics, but healing; not nostrums, but normalcy; not revolution, but restoration; not agitation, but adjustment; not surgery, but serenity; not the dramatic, but the dispassionate; not experiment, but equipoise; not submergence in internationality, but sustainment in triumphant nationality....". This in my opinion is exactly what America wanted, a hero, to restore the peace, to make a once great nation great again; which is exactly what he promised.

He also promised "
," he mentioned not only increased tariff protection and lower taxes as prime issues but the necessity for a national budget system and economy in administration." This is significant because taxes on importated goods and others were high at the time considering the struggle that people were going through, which made people want to vote for him.
