Storyboard Text

  • Hello, I'm Uncle Sam!
  • And I'm a Filipino!
  • I think that imperialism is the only way a nation can survive.  It is a part of Social Darwinism, only the fittest of nations can survive!
  • But your expansion is only at the sake of another nations independence!
  • I believe that we should follow The Open Door Policy, and expand our sphere of influence by annexing other nations.
  • Your urge to acquire more land is going to bring about conflict!
  • But we must bring the light of civilization to lands like yours!
  • I would prefer self-government, over becoming a state or colony.
  • But if we do not expand further, other nations will view us as weak and vulnerable!
  • Besides, you have expanded enough already! You have fulfilled Manifest Destiny, or your so called mission to expand to the pacific! 
  • The acquisition of nations like yours is also a promising opportunity for trading posts with eastern nations like Asia.
  • Well, I can only be glad for groups like the Anti-Imperialist League, which work to protect the freedom of nations like mine.
