    the conservatives here are so nuts they would say T. Roosevelt was a communist (and Ike too)

    the righty nutcases here would call two of the greatest gop presidents ever,Eisenhower and Teddy Roosevelt, communists or socialists. Just goes to show how nutty some of today's republicans have become.

    The Square Deal was President Theodore Roosevelt's domestic program formed upon three basic ideas: conservation of natural resources, control of corporations, and consumer protection.

    Thus, it aimed at helping middle class citizens and involved attacking plutocracy and bad trusts .......
    ... Roosevelt was a Republican who believed in government action to mitigate social evils, and as president denounced “the representatives of predatory wealth” as guilty of “all forms of iniquity from the oppression of wage workers to defrauding the public.”[2]

    or Ike

    "This is what I mean by my constant insistence upon "moderation" in government. Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas.5 Their number is negligible and they are stupid. "
