Is the U.S. too involved in foreign politics?

Thank you that's exactly what I was getting at. Not just that they work for lower wages WHILE on welfare because we signed an agreement with Mexico stating we do that. They get everything easier than a citizen born in America. I'm not talking illegal citizens born in America because that's not "legal citizenship" that's illegal immigration still. It's just the way the liberal government here works, I don't understand they're logic. But liberals will over and over deny the fact even tho it's obvious because they have they're head stuck in the sand.

I don't see how that makes their life easier. I don't know why American complains that illegals are "taking their jobs". The nationalists who bash those more educated and less educated because they're willing to work harder than them. If you really wanted to work, then get down and dirty and get paid for less because there are people willing to do it. Nobody's stealing your job if they're actually doing it. I don't know what the privileged - master race, if you will - are trying to accomplish by complaining. You're not entitled to a job if you're too picky about the pay. Almost a million immigrants will come illegally to your country every year to work a job you claim to be too **** for you. If you're too good as a White American to do the same jobs illegals do then keep complaining and keep suffering, because at least somebody is putting food on the table for their family tonight.
Remember, these people are here working with little qualifications and making much less than someone more privileged does. I see this as a fault of the capitalists who employ them. Because illegals are paid less, more of them are eligible for food stamps. Everybody in the country contributes to the funding of your welfare state, but the rich "job creators" are reaping the profit. Don't blame the illegals - they've suffered much already and are willing to continue working. Instead blame those who can only gain by providing lower wages and less benefits. If you're upset about illegals and at the government, that's exactly what the privileged class would want from you so they can continue using cheap labour at your expense.
Socialist rant over, now let's get to the foreign politics. Perceptions of Mexico as a poor, backwards country can only be caused by your media. In fact, Mexico is one of the Next 11 economies having grown 3.9% in 2012 vs. the US only having grown 2.2%. While the Mexican GDP per capita is 17% of the US, that ratio will grow to be 48% in 40 years. Even though it's poor when compared to the US, the country is quite wealthy in comparison to the rest of the world and will continue to grow quickly.
As for the rest of the world, I'm not too sure because I don't even know what perspective to take. How do you define what's in the American interest? Is the US not taking a more direct action in Libya and Syria a sign of it being unable to act like it once could, or that it's smartened up and learned how to achieve its goals without intervening directly (not so much in Syria, but still). And is the US pivot to Asia going to lead to more cooperation or suspicion with China? Now I can say for sure that industrializing countries want to usher in a multipolar world where US influence will not be paramount - it'll still be powerful and have friends, but won't be calling the shots like it could post-1990, or even during the Cold War. So you could even frame the question like so: the US will be intervening too much with respect to how much regional powers want sovereignty in their spheres of influence (Europe, Russia, China, Brazil, Iran - among many others).
