I intend for this post to be an elaborate discourse on the topics of terminology and imperialism and how these two notions relate. Implicitly, then, I will be discussing America's role in modern-day imperial ventures. However, prior to engaging in this discourse, I wish to clarify two important elements of my argument.
Element #1: The United States: this is a geographic region to be understood, in the context of this discourse, to include only the contiguous 48 states - Alaska and Hawaii are constitutional violations that I will not tolerate. I will not contribute to their national acceptance through a narative that includes them in the American population.
Element #2: Ventures: These are not adventures; they are simply ventures. If you do not understand what I mean by this, you are most likely a birth defect.
Now, for the body of my argument. It has often been suggested that imperialism is a policy reserved for developed nations; however, those who would posit such a claim are inbred infidels. These - Sorry guys... gotta cut this one short - my lemur has escaped his cage.
