  • Q8
    Below is an excerpt from the platform of a group formed in 1899: "We hold, with Abraham Lincoln, that 'no man is good enough to govern another man without that other's consent. When the white man governs himself, that is self-government, but when he governs himself and also governs another man, that is more than self-government-- that is despotism.' Our reliance is in the love of liberty which God has planted in us. Our defense is in the spirit which prizes liberty as the heritage of all men in all lands. Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves, and under a just God cannot long retain it." Based on this statement, which action would the group MOST strongly oppose?
    the extension of voting rights to African Americans
    the construction of the Panama Canal
    the annexation of the Philippines after the Spanish-American War
    the buildup of the United States Navy
