God Bless Pat Buchanan!
Thank you sir, for your illuminating works. I've drawn inspiration from them ever since reading Death of the West in high school in 2002. As a 2006 graduate of Columbine High School, I can say that your defense of "the America that you grew up in" resonates greatly as I and my generation never got to experience this period in time. I can't speak for all my age, but for me at least, the sense of nostalgia and loss has been huge.
THE Shining Light
Pat, just wanted to let you know that you speak for sooo many people and that you are 90% of the reason why I\'ve been a fan of \"The McLaughlin Group\" since 1986!
All the best, Sir, and God bless!
Christians of Iraq
Hope you are doing well. Not sure if you are able to read these notes. I just wanted to bring your attention to the Christian community of Iraq and Syria. The are being oppressed and prosecuted because of their faith and no one seems to care. Please, if you are able to, spread the word about their plight. They need help before they disappear. The Assyrians, the first ethnic group to convert to Christianity, are threatened to become extinct. I hope you, and anyone you know, might be able to spread the word in regards to their plight before it's too late. Thank you and God bless!
Pat - you are a prophet
Pat you are a prophet, a man of great insight and full of common sense. I have read a number of your books starting with Death of the West, which now more than a decade old – could you have been any more correct. You were on the right side in the middle-east verses the neocon’s war. You were on the right side of immigration and NAFTA. Thank you for being one of the last true conservative voices, with an intellect to back it up. Thank you for the recent “Their War, Not Ours” – spot on again! Please do something on the neocon “Project for the New American Century” – that group never made news during the build up to war (or not enough).
Please raise this issue again, as only you can…
What Might Have Been...
As time goes by and all of your predictions about the nation and the world come true, I often wonder how it may have all turned out differently...and for the better...had you won the 1992 GOP nomination and subsequent general election. It was a sad day when GHW Bush sewed up the nomination. A good man, but not the right man. Pat, you were the right man at that fork in our nation's history. We are all left to lament what might have been, as we deal with the aftermath of the diminishment of the nation and its culture that you predicted so long ago now.
Globalization is Treason
More comments on the destructive results of free trade and globalization please! More comments on how the GOP sold out the middle class and chose K Street over Main Street. It is the root of our economic problems. Write an up to date book about the subject please!
Getting rid of corporate taxes is a great idea. This should be followed by lower personal income taxes and abolishment of property taxes. Americans should own their land and home, not rent it from the government. But these things will not come about because politicians and government would lose control and they are not going to let that happen.
Tax Wall Street
Dear Pat Not taxing Corporations is of course a great idea. The fact that this has already been done proves to me our congressmen are incapable of critical thinking. Your suggestion of imposing higher import tariffs (protective tariffs) are of the same philosophy as the Founders, namely Alexander Hamilton. But there is another source of income hardly ever mentioned - namely taxing Wall Street! They say 1/4 of 1% tax on every Wall Street Casino Transaction would yield Billions in tax revenue!
Death of the West
Thank you, loved your \"Death of the West\" and I recommend it to all.
Abolish the Corporate Tax!
Pat, this article is the answer to reversing the offshoring of the American economy to the "City of London" and the rest of the wiseguys who have been hiding on their little islands in the Caribbean, the Channel islands, and the rest where they launder money and conspire to undermine the USA
I am reading your articles the past few months and I am impressed by the clarity of your argumentation, simplicity and common sense approach about economic, political and geopolitical problems. This is what is missing from the political scene of the world. I would love to hear your views about the impact of robotic technology on the future of humanity, economic and political.
State of Emergency should be required reading for all who are seriously concerned about America's future. The 21st centuries equivalent to the lantern in the church tower.
Is Obama Wrong on Ukraine?
Clearly Mr Obama is wrong. To add a real politics argument to PJB\'s excellent column, the Russian Army is much tougher and better equipped than that of Iraq. Boots on the ground would translate into many body bags. In addition, I rather respect Mr. Putin.
Pat for President..Please
Pat, you are the one person that best represents not only my thoughts, but what is best for the USA. You need to run for president. Even if you do not win, you will wake up America as to what is best for this country. Herb J, Airborne, Ranger, Special Forces, USMA Class of 1958
Cliven Bundy is Moynihan
Pat - How are Cliven Bundy's opinions any different than what Moynihan was saying in 1965! Suggest you write about it.
Pat, I forward your columns to my circle of friends and family and hope they will read what I consider to be the best analysis of the events of our time. What you write is bound to bear fruit in influencing public policy that is good for this country.
Sons of the American Revolution
I met you in 1996 the night after you defeated Bob Dole in the New Hampshire primary. Miss having you in the primaries. We need you.
Just wanted to let you know if you didn't know already, it looks like you are eligible for membership in Sons of the American Revolution. Your ancestor, Joseph Prindle, born 1730, is listed in the SAR patriot index. Let me know if you're interested and I'll get you in contact with someone.
Thank you for your service to our country,
Go Pat Go!
Pat, you need to run for president again. We need a nationalist movement in this country. I still have an old campaign button from 1996.
Eric Holder and smart Guns
If Eric Holder likes this so called "smart gun technology" so much he should mandate that all federal law enforcement agencies have smart guns . After all it is said that more law Enforcement personal are killed with there own firearms than with a criminal and his gun. Mandating this could potential save lives. But he won't because law enforcement personal would be upset having to use a weapon that may not work at a critical time.
whose side is God on now?
Your Magnum Opus is in progress! Putin restores The Russian Orthodox Church throughout the land, He replaces lost Christian Relics with a kiss. He makes Russia a strong Christian Citadel. In contrast, The U.S. leader declares that we are not a Christian nation and promotes same-sex marriage. He makes the U.S. the new Sodom. Putin regards Ukraine as a mother country. He bases this on the Ukrainian Saint Vladimir The Great(980-1015) as being The Stone of Foundation of the two peoples. Saint Vladimir merged the two nations into one culture based on military might and the Christian religion. The Restoration of The Old Dominion is The Key to Russia's strenght. Freedom is lost in the darkness which now reigns in the U.S.. Cicero remarked that Freedom lost and then regained is the greater Freedom! Are we to sink deeper into darkness without a fight, then we have no honor left in our souls. Surely, at lest 300 of us will march into this apocalyptic struggle and save THE CAUSE!
Whose Side is God on Now?
As one who voted for you for President, and followed you since Crossfire days, I thought you\'d like to hear about the lady who claims responsibility for the change in Putin and Russia. Her name is Dr. Olga Lutsenko. She was assigned to find a way to teach morality to Russian children. She found the Bible. I think she would be a good contact for you.

So glad you are continuing the "good fight" after all these years. I volunteered during your presidential campaign & have read almost all of your books. It's amazing how prescient you have been and continue to be. Thank You!
Dear Pat! I want to thank you for all that you have done to find the truth, no matter what. I grew up in a GOP that did not use the poor as a scapegoat; monitored Wall Street; backed manufacturing; was suspicious of war; and stood up for ALL peoples rights. That ended as subversive ex-Trotzkyites went GOP and turned the \'Right\' on its head! They stand for division and poverty at home and war abroad. Who benefits? Not anyone but Global Banking. Thank you for your courageous writing on debunking war mythology. Globalist Liberal Walter Lippman and a Neoconservative Hero of today wrote in 45, \"Not until the Allied Propaganda Of WW2 is in the history books can we say there has been victory\". Your magnificent book, THE UNNECESSARY WAR, wipes out the absurd hero worship of Churchill we must live with and brings out the truth of that disastrous conflict, and one in which the Neocon-NeoLiberal crowd seeks to reignite with Putins\' Russia today!
Dear Mr. Buchanan,
After viewing your point of view on Putin on PBS, I must say,\" I can\'t believe it. You actually spoke the honest to God truth on the matter. Putin does not want to kill his blood line. Despite what people who have a real bad case of McCarthyism on their brains have to say.\"
As always, armed with all the historic and political facts, and most importantly, basic logic, you explained the situation in the Crimea and Russia, better than all. I am sick and tired of politicians and commentators, on the left and right alike, rendering their "expert" opinion on the matter without knowing, or wanting to know, the real historic and geopolitical facts. Why is it okay for us Americans, and others, to be nationalist and patriotic, but it's taboo for Putin and the Russians? It is paradoxical that, as a Christian, I look for an ex-communist/atheist to defend my conservative and Christian values in today's World.
Keep up the good work Pat!
Always a fan.
