March of the Flag

The main question in this reading "March of Flag" by Albert Beveridge was "shallthe american people continue their resistless march towards the commerical suppremacy of the world?"
However, Beveridge demonstrates to his audiance that if England can govern foreign lands, so can America and if Germany can govern foreign lands so can America. The point here is that American ablity to govern has dimished, so we only have to continue the march of the flag.

You need to develop the point a little further. What is Beveridge arguing and why is his argument convincing? What images and symbols does he use to make his case? How does this compare with the political rhetoric of today?
