It was much simpler for Republicans to “attack the progressive war effort than to detail an alternative vision. ’” Pundits in the 1920s – and scholars thereafter – have emphasized that the meaning of normalcy was unclear but it was appealing and clearly a reaction to the events, ideas, and apparent tumult of the Wilson years that preceded it. These changes represented a dramatic shift in political philosophy. “Republican leaders,” McGerr insists, “had begun to rehabilitate that progressive anathema, ‘individualism’” (McGerr 2003: 311).

Women’s suffrage was not the only Progressive Era legacy that carried on to influence the 1920s. Civil service reform and veterans’ bonus issues also flared up then and seemed to remind many Americans directly of the Wilsonian legacy that made such issues necessary and incendiary (all the more so). More discussion of what happened to these Progressive Era reforms in the Republican Era is in Chapter 2. All the same, historians have embraced the “normalcy” narrative that “essentially the Republicans gutted the economic accomplishments of the Progressive Era by cutting the hated income tax, ignoring organized labor and the poor, and allowing big business to dominate federal regulatory agencies” (McGerr 2003: 315).
