      This is a very strong four stars. Empire for Liberty provides an interesting and well told account of the interaction between expansionism and liberal ideals in American foreign policy throughout its history, as encapsulated in six thought leaders in US foreign policy/5. Republicanism in the United States is a set of ideas that guides the government and ideas have shaped the government, and the way people in the United States think about politics, since the American Revolution.. The American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence (), the Constitution (), and even the Gettysburg Address () were based on ideas from American.

    Libertarianism in the United States is a political philosophy and movement promoting individual liberty. According to common meanings of conservatism and liberalism in the United States, libertarianism has been described as conservative on economic issues (economic liberalism) and liberal on personal freedom (civil libertarianism), often associated with a foreign policy of non-interventionism.   America’s public persona was everything that Toryism was not: optimistic, Protestant, enlightened, and republican. And it was anti-imperial—or claimed to be. The nature of the American Revolution—its rejection of British monarchy and European great-power politics—contributed an anti-imperialist cast to our national consciousness.

    I know it's trendy these days to jump on the populist bandwagon, kick America while it's down, and wring your hands about how awful American "imperialism" is, but if you truly wanted to be bold, then perhaps it would make more sense to actually take bold stances especially on issues where republican liberty is actually threatened. The Republican Liberty Caucus, which describes itself as "the oldest continuously operating organization in the Liberty Republican movement with state charters nationwide," was founded in Among the caucus's past chairs are Chuck Muth, Congressman Ron Paul, and Dave Nalle.

Hoover won in a landslide victory.
