Note: Isolationists blocked Roosevelt from entering WWII too soon. Had F.D.R. jumped into the war before Pear Harbor, he would not have had the necessary political and economic support to prosecute WWII to its logical conclusion. Congress would not have given him a blank check. ... The later blacklisting of isolationist thought paved the political path for entrance into the Vietnam quagmire. ... In general, conservative pre-Pearl Harbor isolationists during WWII were more qualified at wealth creation, thus complimenting liberals who were experts at wealth redistribution. ... The U.S. could afford to police the world during WWII because it had not yet redistributed its wealth-creating factories & industries away from America.
