One comment on “US Empire: The Reality of the “Greater United States”

  1. The American constitution appears very ‘Res Publica Romana’ with its senate and other elements. However, it is also, in a way, imperially Roman in that it has a Commander-in-Chief (Imperator or Emperor in the later period). The Emperor therefore commands the army, and his success depends on his ability to wage successful war. This is what the President has to do to keep the folks at home happy. Even Obama had to launch a few missiles, and kill the top terrorist (even if, as some think, he was already dead).
