For example, possession of the Philippine Islands on what promised to be a long-
term basis gave rise to the question: does the Constitution follow the flag?, an
issue that would land squarely in the lap of the court. Indeed, the presidential
election of 1900 included the larger, fundamental issue of imperialism: yes or no?
Toward the close of Roosevelt's life the United States would become involved in
the ultimate power struggle among the nation states. If Wilson's policy of
neutrality did ...

1850s, and would come up in connection with the Spanish–American War in
1898: does the Constitution follow the flag, and, if so, how? The populations in
the southwest were, in the view of many officials and observers, a “foreign people
” speaking an “alien language” who were not “Americans.” Albert Beveridge,

,” the U.S. Supreme Court somewhat tepidly endorsed the imperialist position ...
