      I'm not clear on the premise of this question. The United States has never been, or sought to be, an empire. If we had, we could have practically ruled the world immediately after World War II. Instead, we chose to rebuild Europe with the Marshall Plan and rebuild Japan as well, All of the recovering, war-torn countries were quickly encouraged to elect their own governments. Can you elaborate on why you asked this question?

      @piloteer ;
      The legal precedent as the challenge of debate places the United States of America as the One Nation under the axiom of GOD as its basic principle, where as the principles of an Empire relies on a translation of a single powered authority as its idea of God.

      Ironically a United State is created by the ruling of the world, in speaking at liberty all nations under a united state consitutional priciple could rule the world as they are moved to a united state bound by two forms of priciples. This is in oposition to democracy which is not a united state as it relise on a independent vote and forms a separation based on majority and not the legal precedent formed with whole truth.
