    I'd rather carry the big stick, than trust somebody else with it.

    However unlike the Russians we are not yet morally Bankrupt,
    Perhaps not by your standards...

    Why either or? You dont need to be isolationist in order to refrain from creating misery and war around the world.

    What makes you think you can trust us with it?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I think we should be somewhere in between, not 'policeing' the world, but not ignoring it either.

    Yet another poll that could have been good, but was not, so, another no vote.

    Why can't the UN, with a ton of reform, of course, become the world's policeman ??

    If it must be on us, then, where is the pay ??
    Or is this reform impossible as the world is not up to it....due to ignorance and intolerance...
    Isolation ? for those with double digit IQs, and no memory..
    World policeman ? we are not up to it....

    It would need reform in a way that there are no veto's when it comes to keeping a naughty country on probation.

    "Isolationist" is an improper word to use. The correct word is "neutral."

    "Isolationist" implies that a country would totally separate itself in all things, including trade. This of course is utterly stupid.

    But I am a strong believer in being neutral. I believe in free trade and friendship with all nations that are willing. I also believe that we should not interfere with the internal affairs of other nations and mind our own business.

    Look at Switzerland. They don't meddle into world affairs. They have a very strong defense on a very small budget. They have not been successfully invaded in at least the last 400 years. Terrorists never bother Switzerland. And nobody hates Switzerland.
