    How does one establish his or her own govt system on other people's land?

    It seems to me that all it takes is a bit of lying and a show of who has better resources. Or does it take honesty and diplomacy

    Easy.  Just make sure you bring along your army.  If it's muskets against bows and arrows, you'll probably do it quite quickly.   However, if the 'savages' are particularly savage, you might have to swindle them in a peace treaty.  It's all been done many times.

    Think of it,in your house which is a small Government system,you establish your own government  on your wife and children;should we call that Diplomacy in a coax form.The same is applicable to the larger one.

    first off , you shouldn't. what gives someone the right to try to start a new government in another country. why would you go to another country if you don't like how it is ran?

    I have no right to establish my thinking, or my way of life on another.
    That said, If someone from another country were to come to me and ask how America set up its government, what steps did we take, how do we make our laws for our country, then I could teach them what I know.  They could go back to their land and try to implement what they learned and establish their own government system based on the American system.

    But for me to go there and expect them to do what I say and they will have a "better" government because I said so is pure rubbish, for me to take my army and attempt to force my government on them would be criminal.

    I think it would take honest, then diplomacy.  You would need to rally support and depending on the government you were trying to replace you would probably have to start a revolution and that would probably be bloody.  You would be branded a terrorist by the people in control and if you loose you will forever be branded as an evil person. 
    If the government you are trying to change is broken beyond repair and your intentions are just it might be worth attempting.  If the system you want to replace is working then you have no business trying to change it.  You would be best to make the changes from inside if it is possible.  Revolution would bring much pain to many people and blood shed should always be a last resort.

    This is called nation building. It's what the United States has attempted since WWII. First it was Korea, Vietnam, attempts in Africa, Iraq, Afghanistan. All of them failures although S. Korea is doing well. The idea is to install a friendly government and have them win over their own people. The problem is conflicting cultures. A government reflects a culture. So a Western culture (Christian) will fail in a Muslim dominated region. The only time it has worked is via genocide. So to answer the question: Forget it. It hasn't worked yet.

    Honesty and diplomacy would be completely foreign concepts to the greatest majority of the politicians in the U.S. today; but who knows, maybe someone would be so shocked by such things that something good would happen.

    Bring a big army and overwhelming firepower.  Beat them into submission.
