    Also What enabled the United States to become involved in the construction of the Panama Canal? The government that started building the canal was overthrown by pro-U.S. rebels. The company that owned the rights to the Canal Zone sold the rights to the highest bidder. The government that controlled the Canal Zone requested financing from the United States. The company that was originally constructing the canal could not afford to finish the project.

    For the Espionage Act of 1917, I'd probably go with the third option -- making a speech that condemned the war efforts. The Espionage Act was a pretty brutal piece of legislation in terms of how it stifled free speech. You could get in trouble, as Eugene Debs did when he was arrested and sent to prison, for talking against things such as the conscription. As for the Panama Canal, the French company couldn't finish the job. They ran into too many problems that proved to be impossible to overcome with the resources they had, so they eventually began looking for a buyer -- and the US was interested in taking on the project.
