The reality of the situation is that the USA has been used as the military branch of elitist powerplays, if it's population can see this and correct it, then the USA can have a healthy relationship with any country on earth. Nobody hates the US, everyone hates the elitists, that have neither flag nor loyalty but their family crests. Besides, globalism is a cat that is out of the bag, get used to living in the real world, it's not going anywhere.

Isolationism in theory is a wonderful idea. I too am tired of all the unappreciative and resentful attitudes from the rest of the world. Sometimes I think we should just do what they want, and get out. Leave them alone. Surely they will quickly realize how much they need us, but of course we wont go back. It will be their loss, and they will suffer the consequences.
However, Isolationism in practice could lead to ignorance and fear. Fear of the rest of the world. Perhaps a few generations after we become isolationists, the typical American's view of the outside world will be negatively affected.
In any case, it is probably too late now. We have our hand in too many things.
none of this is our problem, Europeans want to bag us, then, become Islamic, who cares? I don't if they don't...
I mean, am I wrong? Why even play a bad guy in posts? Why be involved in any of it anymore?
A new report by the Energy Forum at Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy finds that the United States will continue to rely on imported natural gas even if areas that are currently restricted are opened up to drilling.
