Was the United States better served by a policy of isolationism or imperialism?

Isolationism is generally considered to be a nation's foreign policy that has strong limits to comprehensive defense and trade agreements. Such a policy avoids external agreements that may bind a nation to act internationally when it may be better to not do so.
