Foreign policy is important because it has a lot to do with the trade, technology, and communications of the United States. Also by nations working together global problems can be fixed easier. Equal rights are important to the U.S because it shows that everyone has the same rights including: black people, white people, Asian, men and woman, ect.

In this paper, Danial’s thesis seems to be clear on what he is going to write about. Danial is explaining how citizenship can save America through Barber; the author. He points out some strong statements where he is able to back up it up. As Danial explained ”Every nation in the world looked at America with admiration and not only did they respect America, but they believed in the leadership offered by America.

Communism in the Cold War "The seeds of totalitarian regimes are nurtured by misery and want, they spread and grow in the evil soil of the poverty and strife. They reach their full growth when the hope of a people for a better life has died. We must keep that hope alive." as said by Harry S. Truman on march 12, 1947 in The Truman Doctrine.

An American Empire The ancient, rather generic definition of imperialism has evolved since its introduction by the Persians, Athenians, Macedonians, and Romans. Specifically, imperialism’s evolution may be seen through United States’ foreign policy from the expansionist policies of the Spanish-American War to the current ideological and economic motives behind the War on Terror. Imperialistic intentions may be connected to over a century of war engagements. It is the motives behind these intentions that are in essence responsible for sparking the evolution into a new imperialism. As the political reality of the world changes through history, American foreign policy must respond to these changes in order gain power, maintain power,
