nov 1, 1939 - WWII Begins
America has no involvement with the second World War and isolationism is a strong opinion because the war did not directly affect us. "Mark this, if we go to war to save democracy in Europe, we shall wind us loosing democracy at home"- Speech by senator Philip La Folette on the eve of WWII. Until the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, Isolationists justified globalism in a case where America was directly effected. We then entered the war. Isolationism was NOT an option at this point.
