The American continentsare henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European powers. We should consider any attempt on their part to extend their system to any portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace and safety The Monroe Doctrine (1823)

The American claim is by the right of our manifest destiny to overspread and to possess the whole of the continent which Providence has given us for the development of the great experiment of liberty and federated self-government entrusted to us John OSullivan New York Morning News (1845) American factories are making more

On fluttered folk and wild-Your new-caught, sullen peoples, Half-devil and half-child.
