Question: 576

17. A man who is good enough to shed his blood for his country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards. More than that no man is entitled to, and less than that no man shall have. Which of the following is most likely true of the speaker of the above quotation?

A. He believed in equal opportunities for people of all social classes.
B. He approved of U.S. involvement in foreign wars.
C. He felt that veterans were entitled to special benefits.
D. He was likely to side with owners rather than workers in labor disputes.
E. He supported an all-volunteer military rather than a military draft.

Correct Answer: A


The term "square deal" is associated with Theodore Roosevelt. Although the reference seems to apply to soldiers, Roosevelt makes no reference to special benefits. Instead, he seems to believe that men of all social classes should have the same opportunities and benefits.
