We shouldn't*

If we're going to act like the world police, then we need to annex everything so we would actually be the "police force", otherwise we're like the world protectors or something and that's lame.

I want a prefect world, a world without corruption, murder, rape ex. The only way to make that happen would be to conquer the world and force it to end those evils. Also the USA has been doing good out there even if you do not want to admit it. If we leeave it would just spin the world into more choas we need to stay out there and fight.

One country alone should not become the world's policemen. The world is a diverse place, with different cultures and views. To have just one country to have act as the "protector" of peace would be foolish. What would most likely happen is that the US would intervene in foreign affairs that it deems "against" its plans and interests. Sure, the US has done good in some foreign affairs, but it has also done some awful stuff too. It would be better to just stick with the UN, maybe buff it up a little.

I would comment if there were a broader spectrum of options instead of just one extreme to another. The first option is isolationist the second is occupation. Foreign policy isn't necessarily only governed by these two factors.

The declaration essentially says " he who can do something to make the world better is obligated to do it."

Personally, the options are poor. To go from the USA should be dipping their toes in everyone's ponds to they should pack up and sit within their boarders are too extreme. This isn't a simple Yes/No
