Pat, if Nixon can do it you can too. Please run for President in 2016 - bring sanity back to the White House!
Is Putin Worse than Stalin
As a fellow Georgetown alumnus (double Georgetown, actually, SFS and Law Center), I have always admired your directness and insight. In fact, you are the only journalist whose views are invariably aligned with mine. Bill Buckley came close but sometimes succumbed to unwelcome neo-con strictures. Thanks so much for safeguarding clear thinking in a world mired in obtuseness. As always, Raf
"Free trade is the serial killer of American manufacturing and the Trojan Horse of World Government. It is the primrose path to the loss of economic independence and national sovereignty. Free trade is a bright shining lie."

The VERY best regards to you.

Morning Joe appearance 8/4
Dear Mr. Buchanan,
It sure was a treat to see you on "Morning Joe" this morning talking about your book, among other things. They need you back there!
Run for President Again Please
Pat, just want to ask of you one small favor, please run for president. We need you now more than ever!
Surprised and astonished
I was surprised. Absolutely unexpected to read such a concise and condensed analysis of the current trends on the Ukrainian civil war.
Good to know there are still open-minded and intelligent Americans out there in the U.S. I keep my faith in men such as Patrick.
Please, U.S. citizens, don\'t support your greedy warlords. Russians don\'t want a war with the U.S. or the NATO bloc.
Thank you, Patrick, for being honest and true to the cause.
The Greatest Comeback
Pat, just finished your newest book and it was great! Would love to see you do a follow-up book on Watergate, and possibly one on the Reagan years, too. My favorite book of yours is Death of the West. I grew up in Atlanta during the 50's and 60's and I too am saddened to see the direction our country is heading. Keep up the good work!
Ukraine problem not Putin
Agree with you completely. US is trying to eliminate potential rivals to the petrodollar demise,and Russia with its supply of oil,gas has ability to make deals that threaten US dominance. This always leads to a war.
Putin will not fight, say experts. I\'m starting to believe it, as US stages proxy war.
Churchill. Hitler and the Unnecessary War
Would that every American would read this book. Were I a millionaire I would see to it that every library in the land has a copy. What a shame that Pat is not at this time our president. His clear sight in regard to both history and current events, and the connection between the two, would save the world from the horrors that those much less clear-sighted seem intent on visiting upon us. Keep talking, Pat, hopefully enough people will finally listen to you.
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.
