My Premise

America should impose the values by which it was founded upon, which include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, upon the world. By doing so we ensure the well being of many while in turn creating more economic opportunities for ourselves. For too long we have tolerated those who impose disposition upon innocent people. We should rise up against such evil, because when America stands, oppression trembles. America should pursue Imperialist policies, so long as they are morally righteous.

I accept this debate, because America isn't a perfect country, and what gives us the right to force our way of living on other people? You can't be an a country that has commited many acts of evil and then try to force your will on other people, they will surely resist and more harm than good will come from it.

It is still not good for the U.S. as it will create many enemies for us, as well as getting the U.N. to turn their backs on us. We don't have the resources/power to control and colonies or wage wars long enough to impose any imperialistic powers on the entire world.

If you read the premise and reason why the question is being asked pro is saying we should because our values are better. Not because we would benefit. His premise is basically about justice

I would like to point out the debate is about is it good for the usa, it does not matter about justice for the must part.
