Should the United States mind it's own business?

Suppose the United States just closed down for renovations. Suppose we brought all the troops home to protect the US borders instead of Iraq. Supposed we cut off all foreign aid and started aiding Americans. Supposed we closed down the country and did not allow any foreign trade for 5 years. All goods would have to be bought and sold in the US. Suppose we did not grant any new citizenships for 5 years and focused who is eligible to stay and who needs to leave then followed up and sent them home. What do you think the repercussions would be?

Update:

This has nothing to do with who I'm voting for or you vote for. Take a break from that, please. Also, we have enough oil on reserv to last more than 20 years so the economy would not collapse. Think again. It may simple, but I'm not convinced it won't work. Help me out.

    since we can only provide less than 30 percent of our oil.. our transportation network would crash.. blackouts riots.. starvation as food transport stopped...

    pretty much all bad.

    also we import more goods then we export so even if we import oil.. we would still go bankrupt

    Suppose the government would give the taxpayers that bailout money instead of the companies. EVERY adult 18 years old and over would receive over $450,000.00. After taxes that would still be over $250,000.00. The government would get half of the bailout money back immediately, the economy would have a major boost. But this would be too easy. They don't think of how to make it easier on us as citizens. They just want more government.

    Then I hope you voted against Obama since he strongly believes in sending our tax dollars overseas to help any and all who need it.

    Isolationism - not going to happen - it would be devastating.

    Source(s): Michael there are almost 200 million people in the United States over the age 18. 450,000 * 200,000,000=90,000,000,000,000 or 90 trillion dollars
