Why The Neutralist? The term Isolationist implies a narrow Fortress America outlook and is used as an epithet. The term Neutralist does not indicate someone hiding out from the world. No one calls the Swiss isolationists. The Wilsonian world view is old, tired and wrong. Our interventions have been less and less successful and now the failure can no longer be covered up.

Lest We Forget
I defy anyone to justify our entry into that war as anything but a horrible error. I have had this discussion many times and in the end, either my opponents would give way (rare) or resort to invective.
Then again, it is the same with the so called war on terror.
Our national motto should be:
Plus ça change, whatever.
