President McKinley justified American acquisition of the Philippines primarily by emphasizing that
a. the Filipinos wanted to be annexed by the United States
b. the electoral success of the Republican party depended on their acquisition
c. there was no acceptable alternative to their acquisition
d. the Philippines were spoils of war and America's by right of conquest

In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
