Use the political cartoon to answer the question.

A political cartoon shows an overweight Uncle Sam getting a new outfit made at a shop with the President measuring him for a new suit. The rolls of cloth are labeled Enlightened Foreign Policy and Rational Expansionism. Three men with big bottles and spoons offer Uncle Sam medicine while he looks on.

What does the medicine being offered to Uncle Sam represent?
A. The medicine represents the pro-expansion movement in America.
B. The medicine represents the anti-expansion movement in America.
C. The medicine represents the new markets found in annexed territories.
D. The medicine represents the expansion of democracy in annexed territories.
I think the answer is B, because the political figures offering Uncle Sam resemble the biggest Anti-Imperialists of the time.
