This country is heading down the tubes. I want to try to trace some of the civil rights, women's rights, and worker's rights, before I become feeble and... they ALL GO AWAY:

4) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Deal (Because it contained the SS)
5) A "Second New Deal" in 1934–36 included the Wagner Act to promote labor unions, the Works Progress Administration (WPA) relief program, the Social Security Act, and new programs to aid tenant farmers and migrant workers. The final major items of New Deal legislation were the creation of the United States Housing Authority and Farm Security Administration, both in 1937, and the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, which set maximum hours and minimum wages for most categories of workers. By 1936 the term "liberal" typically was used for supporters of the New Deal, and "conservative" for its opponents.
