President Theodore Roosevelt and
The Spanish American War Era

By the time the Spanish American War started to brew America had grown in such a way that it was impossible to contain.

Every part of society was growing by leaps and bounds and so rapidly that any attempt to halt it would harm the very fabric of its foundation.

Imperialism or just growth and influence?

Let's look at the Philippines and let one of the finest American minds explain the significance of this acquisition in one hand and the value of military strength on the other.

President Theodore Roosevelt rightly foresaw the significance the Philippines acquisition would mean for America's future as well as the bigger role that country was to play in the world's safety.

This meant more than any measly result of the Spanish American War.

Roosevelt was not an imperialist, he never met anyone who was, he believed that it was un-American for any citizen in this great land to be imperialistic. Furthermore, the very thought that any American could ever be viewed as imperialistic was inconceivable to him.

He was greatly offended by the charge and took it personal.

He constantly explained the differences, and repeatedly remarked and made the case for expansion because it is and has been proven since his day to be different.

It means growth which leads to progress, it was prosperity and security for a all peoples to thrive, the very essence in the American grain.

It was a more noble objective than mere moneymaking.
It meant freedom.....
