If you are talking about the early years of the First World War, then D is the best choice. A significant chunk of Americans in 1914 were relatively recent immigrants from Europe, and for the most part they came to this country to get away from the folly and strife in Europe. The fact that they came here was "voting with their feet" -- voting to say to heck with all of you, the European powers that is, and their interests.
Additionally this was the early heyday of the movements that would later coalesce around socialism and communism, and there was a rising feeling in middle and lower-class citizens that the wars of the 19th century were fought at the behest, and in the interests of, the aristocratic class -- for the King or Kaiser, in service to Napoleon III's ambition or the Tsar's. There was certainly a growing hostility towards any semi-feudal sense of obligation to the ruling classes of Europe, and a sympathy for the proposition that the working class should look out for its own interests, and that these might be distinct, and maybe not even confined by national borders.
Keep in mind that great social revolutions occured as a result of the strife of the First World War. Not only the Communist Revolution in Russia, either. All five of the major combatants (Great Britain, France, Russia, Germany, Italy and Austria-Hungary emerged from the war with the power of the traditional aristocracy significantly diminished (the Russian tsar, German kaiser, and Austrian emperor were all deposed), and experienced a significant turn towards socialistic governments. This is why the First World War was between aristocracies, roughly speaking, while the Second World War was between ideologies.
