  • We were an isolationist nation before Japan attacked Pearl Harbor most Americans didn't want to get involved in another war after world war one. 

    Still say FDR allowed the attack to happen to get us involved in the war.

    The US has made itself so dependent on the global supply chain that it would take a generation or more for it to retool to the self sufficiency required to become isolationist.

    If Trump's isolationism was actually that but it isn't.  He tears up international agreements, insults the leaders of long standing allies, praises dictators, yet still thinks he can order and bully to rest of the world to do what he wants.

    That is nothing like isolationism, it is more like a tin pot dictator with a Napoleon Complex.  If you are not aware of the term, here is a definition.

    "Napoleon Complex" is a theorized inferiority complex normally attributed to people of short stature. It is characterized by overly-aggressive or domineering social behaviour, such as lying about earnings, and carries the implication that such behaviour is compensatory for the subject's physical or social shortcomings.

    We should do neither. Those are both extremes. We should deal with the international community while maintaining our sovereignty.
