American Imperialism

Everyone knows that the United States of America is a very powerful country. We seem to have everything that every other country longs for and we are proud to know that we have set good examples and are willing to lead. Most Americans don’t know that the reason we are leaders, and are so powerful is because we are an imperialist nation. American Imperialism has been a part of the United States since the American Revolution. Imperialism is having control over other countries; with the United States never being able to stay out of others’ business and wanting to control everything has a perfect fit. America’s imperialistic movement began by invading Mexico and bringing about the Spanish-American War, which resulted in Mexico being divided into smaller individual American colonies. America has always had a hunger for power and it’s never going to change, therefore America is always going to be an imperialist nation.
