The '''Square Deal''' was [[President of the United States|President]] [[Theodore Roosevelt]]'s domestic program formed upon three basic ideas: conservation of natural resources, control of corporations, and consumer protection.<ref>{{citation |url=http://www4.bluevalleyk12.org/bvhs/mklopfenstein/Apush_notes/Unit_VI/THE%20PROGRESSIVE%20ERA(post).pdf |title=The Progressive Era (1900-1920) |first=Mark |last=Klopfenstein |format=PDF}}</ref> These three demands are often referred to as the "three C's" of Roosevelt's Square Deal. Thus, it aimed at helping [[middle class]] citizens and involved attacking [[plutocracy]] and bad [[Trust (19th century)|trusts]] while at the same time protecting business from the most extreme demands of [[organized labor]].

The '''Square Deal''' was when the 26th President of the United States Theodore Roosevelt was chilling in the white house with some secret service guys smoking some Marlboro Special Blends. Then all of the sudden his arch enemy Mrs. Conneybeer jumped out of a random bus nearby screaming "Hey you kids can't be smoking those cigarettes mehhh!!!!! I'm just angry because I'm secretly addicted to crack and smoke reminds me of that silky haze I get from my rock." Because this was an affair concerning the smoking of cigarettes, the event was forever remembered as 'The Square Deal'.
   
 
Within his second term, he tried to extend his square deal further. Roosevelt pushed for the courts, which had been guided by a clearly delineated standard up to that point, to yield to the wishes of the executive branch on all subsequent anti-trust suits. In 1903, with Roosevelt's support, Congress passed the [[Elkins Act]]. This stated that railroads were not allowed to give rebates to favored companies any longer. These rebates had treated small Midwestern farmers unfairly by not allowing them equal access to the services of the railroad. The Interstate Commerce Commission controlled the prices that railroads could charge.
