As Americans it is our destiny to expand the size of our nation Now at the turn of the century the United States needs to expand to support our growing county Here is our chance to join the European imperialist powers in Europe and establish colonies overseas such as the Hawaiian Islands Imperialism is a global trend and if we as a nation want to fit in with the superpowers like England and Germany we must extend our economic political and military powers over weaker territories Advances in technology are enabling Americans to produce far more than Americans alone can consume However the United States is in dire need of materials for our factories As an imperialist the solution to the American economic crisis is foreign trade If we can trade our overproduced products for the raw materials that we need to keep our factories up and running then the United States will be economically sound for years to come As long as we export more than we import our glorious country will be a leading economic power Another reason for American imperialism is our desire for military strength Because many of the countries around the world are establishing military presence in areas other than their home countries I feel that it would be wise for the United States to build up our own military strength before foreign superpowers can take advantage of us We need a strong navy to defend our shipping lanes during peacetime to ensure American economic growth We also need a strong navy to protect our country in times of war In the event of a war the United States must be prepared to defend everything that we have worked so hard to achieve With a strong navy and a canal in Panama the United States would be the strongest country in the Western Hemisphere because we could easily trade with Europe and Asia Along with ships to protect shipping
