Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am sure the writer of this thread will agree with your assumptions, but let me ask you a couple of questions?

Sure enough what would the world do without the USA?
I don't believe that the time before the 1790s was especially peaceful.
And are you assuming that we had power one year after we convened the Congress? And did we show any external policies in world affairs before WWI? You do remember that the US was involved in a very bloody civil war? Not like we were able to do much then.

And how much involvement was the US in World affairs between WWI and WWII? Other than the League of Nations?

Ohhh, yes that is scary if you have to use Halliburton. Can you imagine a world with another Hitler, Stalin, Mao, PolPot...?

Can you imagine another North Korea, China, USSR, Hungary, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary(such a good point I will do it twice), Cambodia...?
