Sliding Roosevelt President Theodore Roosevelt never picked sides with the liberals of the far left or the conservatives of the right He usually found himself intertwined in the middle of the groups Sometimes thinking like a conservative and sometimes thinking like that of a liberal Whatever the case he always maintained a foundation in the center to keep a neutral balance He stood close to the center and bared his teeth at the conservatives of the right and the liberals of the extreme left President Roosevelt although not a strong liberal did do many things to help the country move on its way to become a more progressive country The Elkins Act of 1903 was one thing Rosevelt did to make him seem like a liberal It said there would be heavy fines given on the railroads that gave rebates and on the shippers that excepted them For example Roosevelt did his best as a trustbuster The first thing that busted into headlines was an attack on the North Securities Company a railroad holding company in 1902 As a liberal Roosevelts main issue to prove was that the government not private business ruled the country In dealing with conservation Roosevelt knew just how to handle himself He took conservation out of the conservation stage threw some of the zest from his personality behind it made it seem big and got the publics opinion He created a policy of multiple-use resource management This was to help keep things from changing too much and to try and conserve what all he could In addition Roosevelt granted rights to striking mine workers Winter was coming and the country needed coal to keep warm Roosevelt tried his best to keep the country happy and take care of business without any political changes so he solved the mine workers ordeal himself Though part liberal Roosevelt stayed opened minded to the conservatives to keep his people happy with as few
