In both of its wars against Great Britain (the War for Independence and the War of 1812), America took up arms mainly on behalf of its political integrity and to put a halt to abuses of its citizens by the royalist government of Great Britain. Fighting for respect as well as seeking to defend (and even expand) economic wealth were additional factors involved.
