The thing on freedom of religion should be improved, as most people interpret it primarily as freedom of belief first, government noninterference second. I'm thinking an article on freedom of religion would probably be warranted, as that's a major issue in the world today. --John 14:13, 5 March 2007 (EST)

Shouldn't that go under Bill of Rights or US Constitution?--Sub Zenyth 23:28, 6 March 2007 (EST)

The part about spreading democracy is empirically not true. There were much more significant increases, especially throughout the 1990s after the fall of the Soviet Union. The spreading of democracy has been a stated goal of the United States throughout its entire history. So I have deleted the last line because it just sounds like speechwriter hyperbole. --Jack 17:20, 17 March 2007 (EDT)

This article needs to be cleaned up

The part of the introduction "is widely considered one of the greatest and most powerful nations on Earth" is a personal perspective, and should be changed to "is widely considered one of the most INFLUENTIAL and powerful nations on Earth". The word greatest symbolises arrogance, as most people would deem there own country the 'greatest'. --Joobs 16:35, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

Changed. --Hojimachongtalk 16:55, 21 March 2007 (EDT)

I think this is a pretty good article (are there noms for pretty good articles here on CP?). I just added a quick blurb about Lewis and Clark to the LA territory paragraph, can someone add years and the President who commissioned them to do the job? Human 18:35, 21 April 2007 (EDT)

Jefferson, 1804-1806. --Hojimachongtalk 18:35, 21 April 2007 (EDT)
