No one is gonna invade. Why? Not feasable. For one, the US is just too damn big a country for anyone to even attempt to occupy. Hitler tried occupying the Juggernaut Russia, and look where it got him. Japan was only capable of occupying a small portion of China.
You also forget that the US has an armed population. Armed populations are alot harder to subdue than unarmed ones. You have some 300 million people and guns everywhere. Anyone who tried to occupy would probably end up with a never ending guerilla war over vast terrain of extremes. they would have to occupy deserts, mountains, wide open plains with the never ending threat of tornadoes, blizzards, ect. Violent extremes. The US simply would not be feasable to invade.
Thus, an even better reason for isolationism: were happier and healthier on our own soil.
