    I agree with you! William Jennings Bryan's "Cross of Gold" speech had to do with the issue of bimetallism, which was delivered at the 1896 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Rudyard Kipling's ideas had to do with the "White Man's Burden", "The Influence of Seapower Upon History" led to an increase in militarism and competition with European powers certainly had to do with imperialism...the United States needed to keep up with the other countries in order to stay on top! So I'd definitely say the answer is D! :)
