    If old Bull Moose TR had of won in 1912, I doubt if he would have taken as long as Wilson to get us involved in WWI. But if Taft the isolationist had won in 1912, he would have kept it us out of WWI. But these are just my opinions.
    and how would have t.r have reacted to the Zimmerman telegram, were germany tried to convince mexico to declare war on the united states and join the central powers, in exchange for part of arizona and new mexico?

    No.

    The world isn't exploding any more than it normally has for the last couple of thousand years.

    I think Obama has a serious golf addiction. A lefty like Obama moving to a heavily conservative Rancho Mirage.

    And Obama's Congressional Representative will be a Republican.

    But Obama will have close to fifty different golf courses to play on.

    That's why Japan jumped into WW l before America did, Japan wanted the "Mandates" the German Micronesian Islands in the Central Pacific. And Japan got them after WW l.
    There is a good case to be made that WWII was just a continuation of WWI. Although several countries switched sides. There is really little doubt that the treaty of Versailles lead to WWII.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think you know that answer. Let's just say he wouldn't have took kindly to it. Perhaps the better question is what would have taft have done?

    It was France and the Versailles treaty that led to WW ll.

    The lessons learned was not to repeat the mistakes that were made after WW l. That's why the Marshal Plan was enacted after WW ll.

    Basically no Versailles treaty, no Hitler.

    But the fuse for war with Japan in the Pacific was lit back in 1905.

    World War Three began a long time ago, in the 1970s. It started when President Carter betrayed and abandoned the best ally we ever had in the Muslim-dominated world—the Shah of Iran—allowing the Khomeniacs to overthrow him and take over that nation. This is when the dangerous, toxic Islamist terrorists first gained control of the resources of an entire nation; from which to spread their poison across the rest of the Muslim world.

    All of the trouble that we have had ever since with Islamist terrorist all goes back to that one tragic act of incompetence on Carter's part.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
