well, I guess you really do not have a clue about the Romans,

You said "As a result, Rome could not afford to offer citizenship to other conquered peoples. Period."

How very wrong you are, not only did they offer citizenship in huge numbers, one of the incentives of conquered peoples for joining the Roman army, was after your period of service, you were a Roman Citizen.

A elementary school school education teaches this, where were you educated? Or have you just studied the Koran?

Please, there is no more need for you to prove your ignorance!
