What Would The World Really Be Like If America Went Home

I was reading some of the comments today that were being made about the USA in the UN. Not a place necessarily friendly to us but does give voice to many different countries. Russia  was lambasting us for our actions in the world, in essence forcing our world view down everyone's throats. I can not deny that we can be a bit heavy handed at times and our good intentions do not always work out well. We really need to be more selective in what we take on. I think it is about time we the USA to come home for a certain time period, 25 to 50 years perhaps. This would enable us to put our own house in order. The Armed forces we have could be used to lock down our borders, let the other countries take care of their own defense. I am not sure we could do this 100% but no more armed adventures, we move to a defensive posture only. Foreign aid could be re-deployed to take care of our poor and pay for healthcare for our people, our families. We do not need foreign oil, we do really have our own reserves, it is time we started using them. Export and trade, we should level the playing field, people need jobs here so no more cheap goods, we are more than able to make them ourselves as we once did. Would this be a painless process likely not but it would be a case of be careful what you wish for, you just might get it. I would be curious just what would happen in the world should this come about.
