If I was President Willaim McKinley I would ask Congress to declare war on Spain. I would declare war on Spain because it would help us get raw materials and new markets. Also the poeple are conviced that Spain sunk the USS Maine and they want actchin now. We should help our neighbor countries because we are a superior country.
If help out Cuba we can take over and use thier resources. It would help out America a bunch. America is such a big counrty we use some much resources and we don’t have some resources like sugar and spices. If we do this we can become a empire.
If we do this we can help out Cuba and Cuba can help us. They are a neighbor country so it would be bad if we are on bad terms. We need to fight Spain so we can take care of our hemisphere.
