All-American Isolationism

David Lindsay on news that "Lindsey Graham has told some foreign policy junket in Halifax, Nova Scotia that an 'unholy alliance' is developing between Left and Right in the cause of neo-isolationism" — Yankee Going Home? "We should be so lucky. And so should the ordinary American taxpaying parents of potential cannon fodder."

Mr. Lindsay notes that "49 per cent of Americans told Pew Research last year that they believed that the US should 'mind its own business', up from 30 per cent in 2002. This year, the Chicago Council on Global Affairs found that nine out of 10 American citizens thought it more important for the future of their country that it fix pressing problems at home than that it concern itself with matters abroad."
