Right from the Beginning
Loved the account of growing up during America's golden age, which I also experienced (5 years behind PJB).
Pat, you have convinced me of a true conservative understanding that takes combines individualism responsibility with the irreducible value of family, redeeming the conservative movement from radical libertarianism and compromises with modern liberalism.
Tea Party Has A Right To Feel Cheated
Great Article, Pat!
Every word was factual!
I quit my Tea Party for the very reasons you stated.
BTW-- I just finished reading your "Churchill & W.W.II" Book, and it is a Stupendous Piece of History! Every American should read this book twice!
I own all your Books, and this one & "Death Of A Superpower" Tie for the Best books you have ever written!
just a note.
awesome, awesome and lastly, awesome. i see no buchananite for president. what next?
you and your amazing work
pat, i love u man!, you have been right on in your opinions and analysis regarding the demise in this country from the start. i wish the country could hear more of your analysis. too bad we never elected you president. your are my hero!!!!!
Dr. Pangloss, Free Trader
"Free Trader" exposes yet another folly foisted upon our country by "people who know best"! Having read all of Pat's books, and as a strong supporter of making these mandatory reading for all young people, particularly "Suicide of a Superpower", I struggle with the fact that most folks are oblivious to these self destructive issues. Why? Thanks for your exceptionally good work!!!

A Conservative Force
You are a dying breed- a true conservative that represents the best this country has to offer. Always look forward to your writings.
Why Congress is Held...
You've inspired a retread of James Burnham's Congress and the American Tradition.
Obama is the epitomy of Cicero's definition of a traitor. Recall that Cicero inspired both the age of Enlightenment and our Founding Fathers as well as the Declaration of Independence. His authority is well established and best be heeded. America will wind up on the dunghill of history unless patriots show strenght through revolution, risking life, limb and home.
Can't wait to read your new book. I am hoping and praying that you can swing by Pittsburgh on your upcoming speaking tour. Western Pennsylvania needs to see the light that only you can provide.
Thanks to you for all you have done and continue to do for our country. You are a true patriot. I may disagree with you on this or that matter now and then, but I never doubt your integrity and veracity as a national commentator. I am an immigrant and very thankful for this great country and her citizens who have treated me so well. At the same time I am dismayed at what is happening today in our ruling class. But you never fail to cheer me up and give me hope that all is not lost yet. Thank you.
Keep up the good work
Pat has been my voice of reason on issues since his original Crossfire show with Tom Braden. Never one to shy away from any subject, you always speak with clarity, certainty and reason. Too bad the country missed out on a Buchanan presidency. Keep the heat on them, Pat!
This is a late midnight request that the final ' None Dare Call It Treason ' be written. Cicero, 45 BC, wrote: "A nation can survive its fools - but it cannot survive treason from within - the traitor rots the soul of a nation - he infects the body politic - a murderer is less to be feared." In the utter darkness which has enveloped our nation, extreme liberalism is showing its true face, from the President down through all echelons. Only you, Pat, can alert the people, issue the clarion call to the patriots that they may rise and re-establish this nation on its God given destiny. Let there be light!
I hope to see you in Las Vegas if you proceed with the speaking tour you recently mentioned on MG. Please don't leave us out!
Pat, I see many parallels from the early part of this century to the last. Particularly, just prior to WWI. Unilateral treaties (i.e., the Senkakus), global financial crises, overly large corporations (trust busting vs. to big to fail) and others. Are we repeating history or do you also find the similarities striking?
5 stars for the "Danish Pastry" quote on Mclaughlin Group !
A great playful moment ! Those who criticize you for it need to get a life.
Marijuana discussion on Mclaughlin report
I enjoyed the discussion about marijuana on Mclaughin this weekend.
I was an ER doc for 25 years and saw a lot of alcohol related violence and accidents, but never saw anyone punch out or kill someone else under the influence of marijuana. I saw few if any fatal accidents associated with its use. There are deaths every year of young people who have literally drank themselves to death acutely by drinking contests, 21 year parties, etc. Marijuana cannot do this.
To be clear, I do not use marijuana.personally. It is so much less toxic than alcohol, and causes so much less social disruption than alcohol, it is hard to see a rational reason for it to be so strongly stigmatized.
Other drugs of abuse, narcotics (which are legal) and cocaine and hallucinogens present a much more difficult problem as they can be immediately damaging to your health and threatening to others.
Sudetenland analogy is more applicable to Israel since Hitler kept annexing countries. Netanyahu is doing the same thing in the West Bank! And the world shamefully stands idly by. The Israel/Jewish lobby is getting scary and so is our security.
Pat. Great words about the pope
I applaud Pat's truly Catholic comments on the current pope's irresponsible behavior. If the current pope would spend a little time with the Lord's words about the salvation of souls, he would not be drifting across the line to belittle moral evil. He would be more willing to sacrifice his momentary popularity and would instead fight for their soul's eternal home with Jesus. He would not be tempting them to further sinful practice and the destruction of their souls. To tolerate or even encourage sin is not kind. It is not persevering in love and is ultimately destructive to the sheep he is supposed to be shepherding to heaven. Jesus never compromised with evil and he showed how terrible God considers sin to be by his excruciatingly painful death on the cross. A pope is supposed to follow in Jesus footsteps, not cater to the devil's lies. In Jesus own words, "What does it benefit a man if he gain the whole world and suffer the loss of his soul."
I just came across your article on Iran issue and I must say I was really very impressed on your thoughts. A very good article and so rightly put. I just became your fan!
Pat, I honestly feel lobbying business in the US should be abolished because it is clearly a legalized bribe. All the problems in the US now is somehow connected to lobbying and lobbyists. Senators like Lindsey Graham, John McCain, Bob Casey etc etc are Israeli agents and they have no problem going into war with Iran because of their loyalty to Israel. They can be hardly called Americans.
I would love to see you run for US Presidency because you will win with your hands down. Americans are sick and tired of seeing their elected officials working for Israel government and big corporations at US taxpayers expense. You have my support 1000%.
Your loyal fan,
Mr. Buchanan you drive me crazy when you write of history and what might have been. Being a good student of history you know what was but don't likely have a fix on what might have been. For your comments on the times we live in, you get a big Amen from me. A populist Pope who is more concerned with what is in one's pocket and in one's pantry than what is in one's mind and heart is a weak half pope. I was brought up protestant, so my priest and advocate are Jesus Christ, but the universal catholic church is surely strengthened by a strong pope. Jesus said he who is without sin caste the first stone. He also said go and sin no more. Aid and forgivenes without instruction is not a ministry. Your instruction to the present is appreciated.
You are right now and you have ALWAYS BEEN RIGHT!!!
Do not ever cut anyone any slack!!!
Memo to Merkel: Tell Obama to Take A Hike
The last time that I checked Germany is an independent sovereign nation and is not a vassal of the U.S. Maybe it's time that the U.S. figured that out.
The very best regards to you,

Opened My Eyes
As a student in a government and politics course, I chose to read Suicide of a Superpower. Your ideas and beliefs have opened my eyes and changed how I view our government. Thank you.
Our people are waiting for a new and final "None dare call it treason". Only you can write it. Let it become your Magnum Opus. Let there be Light!
