Any rational person can see that the United States does not meet these qualifications by any stretch of the imagination.

And so if one does not agree with your position one is simply irrational. Is that it? Very clever.

It is very obvious to me that the United States is an empire. Now this dildo may be technically right but it also seems fairly obvious that the rise of transnational entities has caused the meaning of empire to go into flux. I would suggest it has been in flux since about the time of the fall of Saigon. I would suggest that when the histories of these days are written the United States will be considered an empire and the dictionary definition will have been brought up to date to reflect the change in the dynamics of power in the latter part of the 20th century and into the 21st.
