So this is kind of a parody of the poll "is the U.S.A de facto an empire", and i wanted to know what you all thought.

he·ge·mo·ny noun \hi-ˈje-mə-nē, -ˈge-; ˈhe-jə-ˌmō-nē\
: influence or control over another country, a group of people, etc.

personally i said yes. we police the world and spread democracy to much to say no.
