Like apple pie, most Americans accept the following laws as American:

Social Security
40-hour work week
Child labor laws
Fair Housing (FHA)
Civil Rights
Public Education
Public Works
No teaching of religion in public schools

When these laws were introduced, the GOP opposed all of them. Is this the party you favor and want to join/support? Why?
