The process of globalization is one that has carried with it a high price for the United States. While the US has been able to extend its overall reach into the international community, not all countries in the international community have been receptive of America's presence. The United States has been accused in recent months and years of being an international ?bully? through its support of policy initiatives that negatively impact the development of certain regions of the world. As the criticism over US foreign policy increases, the problems facing people living in the United States have become exacerbated in recent years. The notable increases in the price of gasoline, the current debate over immigration and the larger issue of the healthcare crisis are persistent problems that are not being adequately addressed by the federal government.Clearly, the external and internal environments that have developed with respect to the United States are quite distressing overall.

Roy (2004) in his examination of the current push toward America's world domination notes that the process has corrupted the development of government overall. [...]
