Take a short bus from the Atlantic Ocean, starting at Hampton Beach, to the Pacific Ocean in California. The idea of Manifest Destiny is a belief that many had in the 1800's that it was the Americans God given right to unite one coast to the other.
So now we have nine Merrimack NH High School Seniors transforming a special education bus into their ride across the country; all of this just to see Bob Barker. and live manifestdestiny
It is manifestdestiny to take a short bus from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean
"Manifest Destiny" was the social theory in the USA in the 19th century which claimed that the USA and its white, Christian citizens were chosen by God. Because of this "choosing" they were entitled to any land they pleased, despite who already owned it (not limited to Native Americans; also including other countries), with the purpose being that they spread their religion of Christianity and their concept of "civilization" to the other, "inferior", people of the world.
My right to take whatever i want whenever i want because god has given me the right to do so
Guy1: hey man im gonna take your beer and call it manifest destiny
Guy2: dude super weak
A half-baked thoery that the USA could do as the fuck it liked. In practise, it got land and the begginings of an empire by paying for it before it started a revolution against the European powers that owned it. When the USA did try and annex Canada, a small number of the British army and a few thousand Canadians beat off the United States, leaving ti with the option of the treaty of Ghent, which didn't give them any land concessions (as opposed to the British-Canadian forces, which never intended to make any, so handed back all taken land without grudge) nor did it make either side any richer. As a courtesy, the Royal navy ended impressing.
When the united states wanted to start an empire, it went after a weakened spanish empire, which was on the brink of freeing itself. When the USA again attempted imperialism in south america, it was having a little trouble with fallen power Spain, so decided to pay $20,000,000 to buy a few POS nations that would have revolted in a few years anyway. Wow, isn't that clever? Obviously, these places have since gained independance. Quite possibly the worst empire ever...
Manifest destiny was retarded. Why didn't the US try conquering outer space instead?
The triumphant result achieved when one's beard hair connects with his chest hair. Only a few can achieve such greatness. May be shortened to "manifest."
