We should not engage in another affair going on in Europe, it's not healthy for America
We are selling items to Britian. Good Money
We must help at all COST!!!
Neutrality, the US didn't want to get into another affair in Europe, they already had to deal with the great depression and rebuild America as it used to be.
oh, that' s a bummer, too bad you have to pay 15 dollars to use my garden hose
America hears about Hiter's aggression in Europe and decides to help, but still wants to be neutral, so they decide to sell their armory.
SO YOU THINK YOUR READY HUH?
Britain runs out of money to provide for America, so FDR stands up and convinces people to help our allies for free with no cost. All that money Britain paid America, is getting America slightly out of their great depression.
Here is the garden hose example FDR used in his speech. The women (Britain) needs help because her garden (Country) is on fire. The man (America) says that you will need to pay me in order for me to help you.
America realizes that giving one side free items to help through the war, they are supporting and joining their side of the war, in this case, the neutrality acts were useless, America is being slowly dragged into another World War, so they start their military buildup.
December 7, 1941. Attack on Pearl Harbor, leaving many killed and injured, after decisions. America officially joined WW2
