If I were running...
Pat, as a long time activist (back to Goldwater days), I remember well his book \"Conscience of a Conservative.\" It\'s time for another book titled, \"Conscience of Conservative Part Two.\" In the book you could layout your agenda if you were the President. I remember when you ran on your official campaign website you had a very comprehensive \"Issues and Answers\" section. Such a small book as this would be invaluable for those of us who are trying to rebuild a traditional Conservative base among the youth.
I shook your hand almost 20 years ago when you were on the stump in Bakersfield, California. I always voted for you. You are a great American. Greater than most presidents.
Fox News Contributor
Pat, I watch you every Sunday on the McLaughlin Group and read many of your books. I\'m a huge fan forever. It would be great to see you as a Fox News Contributor.
Suicide of a Superpower
Hey Pat: Like you, I am a \"classical conservative\" on most economic, foreign and military matters, i.e., Bismark & Disraeli. Back when you hosted \"Cross-fire\", and were running for President, I must admit, however, that I found you to be extreme in many of your views. However, as time has passed, and events have transpired, I have come to realize that many of your past stated concerns and opinions have proven to be quite prophetic. I wish that \"Suicide of a Superpower\" could have been written back then. Hopefully, upon reading your new book, enough people will be alarmed enough to try and reverse many of the trends being made on our nation in the name of \"diversity\" & \"multiculturalism\". History shows that being a prophet in your own time can often be a lonely and thankless task. You must have thick skin. You seem to revel in being attacked by liberals and neoconservatives in their mistaken belief that America can/should be all things to all people. Thanks for your fearless tenacity. David C. Frazier
Dear Mr. Buchanan
Dear Mr. Buchanan
I am a dyed in the wool liberal; that being said, I always appreciated your insights and commentary on the Morning Joe show. Often wonder where you have gone and I think the show is less dynamic without you!
Your common sense
Pat, thank you for continuing to speaking your mind on issues. When you stopped being on Morning Joe and MSNBC, I stopped watching them and frankly that entire left wing network. I, too, am a conservative and spend most of my time watching Fox and am also a Republican in FL now. Being a fellow Jesuit Catholic student (attended Loyola University of Chicago) I appreciate your factual and humanitarian touch to issues. I watch McLaughlin Group to catch your comments and wish you were on more. By the way on \"Book TV\" I saw your civil war gun collection which is very impressive as I also am a student of civil war history, take care, Larry, Tampa (Formerly of Chicago, IL)
Frankfurt School - Death of The West
It's a great "add" to your earlier and magnificent "Death of The West". Please use you stature to prompt all talking heads to enlighten America re how the Frankfurt School mob was what set of the "deadly condition" we've evolved to.
My new favorite...
Dear Mr. Buchanan:
Today is actually the first day I have heard of you, as I try not to get into politics. I have only read one of your recent posts, and a post that I saw from you on Craigslist (someone else posted it and commented). I am interested in reading all of what you have to say. And I just wanted to say Thank You! For once, someone finally stood up and spoke the truth about the racial issues we have! If the rest of your works are as right-on as those posts, you have my vote on anything you do!
You're the greatest Pat. The mainstream networks can't handle you. Maybe you can get a nice spot on Russia Today!
Suicide of a Superpower
I just finished your book and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm recommending it to family and friends. I was a regular viewer of Morning Joe primarily to hear your take on politics, etc. but now that you're gone, it's just not the same. Too many liberals! I'm hoping that you and Fox (or Fox Business) can make a deal. We need your voice on TV, now more than ever. You are a great historian and a great American. May God Bless...
Thank you for speaking the truth!
Please don't ever stop.
"It's All About Race Now"
Thank God for you, Pat, for writing the article \"It\'s All About Race Now\"! Finally someone had the courage to speak the truth. Glad I am not the only one that is informed and has not been brain-washed in our country.
I was not surprised to learn you were leaving MSNBC. They had purged Tucker Carlson years ago (giving a show to his frequent guest, Rachel Maddow); that left you as the only conservative on the network. Well, I just wanted you to know I voted for you in 2000 and continue to support your insight into politics. Best of luck, Pat
While I do not agree with you on trade and the war on drugs as I am relatively a whole hearted libertarian or Ron Paul guy if you will. You have become one of my hero's. Your never ending support of your principles and what you deem as important to the human condition is to be admired. Your will and courage truly that of the founding fathers.
Before I go any further, let me send you some greetings from France where I am from. I studied in the US but discovered you too late in my studies but now I keep up with your blog. I have just read your essay regarding this horrible massacre in France. Although I might be wrong on this one and I would be willing to accept it,I believe you somehow exaggerated the analyses from the left and how they blamed the right for having increased hate. The far-right was indeed a suspected during the early hours of this massacre but this thought quickly faded away. That said, I hate how the left stayed silence on this diversity as you mentioned. I know you are a true Republican and I support you. I just wish more Europeans, at least French, knew there is republican and republican.
I'm half way into this book now. Very well written and all 100% true. Pat you are a great American and Patriot! America may not live past 2025, but you will be remembered far passed that year as the scholar who tried to save the west. Thank you for your wisdom.
Suicide of a Superpower
Just finished Suicide... excellent job. Am recommending it to anyone who will listen. Can quibble over some of the conclusions but the hard facts and history speak for themselves. Am frustrated by the lack of attention it has received in so many quarters. It should be on the front burner of every media analyst in the country. Such an important work needs demands in depth analysis and discussion. Those in power who dismiss or disregard it do so at the peril of us all.
Thx again, JJM
We have the same issues here with ethnic groups. We have apartheid in reverse. A white student has to get over 80% to get into university and a black student 60%. Is this not discrimination? If we moan we are told we are racists. If we join a whites only group, we are racist, yet we cannot join the blacks only groups! Our families are murdered, robbed and raped every day, but if we quote the stats on who the perpetrators are we are racist. We have had 18 years of no apartheid yet they blame everything on apartheid. I have my sons in a semi-private school which takes a third of my salary, but I want them to study and move away from here as soon as possible. I will do whatever I can to let them live a long and prosperous life away from the dangers here in South Africa.
I voted for you all three times when you ran for president 1992,1996,& 2000. I left the Republican Party after I watched what they did to you. I first found about you in 1987 and miss the days when you were on Cross Fire on CNN. I am reading your latest book, Suicide of a Superpower. Pat you should be on Fox you have so much wisdom to share we really need your insight. By the way, my parents were born in 1938 as well, a lot of good came out of that year. Your friend, Dr. Louis F. Blakley
I wonder why you disappeared from the Morning Joe program?
I've read most of your books and agree with you more than any politician or talking head. I am reading The Crusader right now and cant put it down. I appreciate you and your career more from reading it. Don't get discouraged and please STAY ON TV!
Suicide of a Superpower
I recently read your book Suicide of a Superpower and wanted to say that it was 1 of my all time favorite books....I literally couldn't stop reading it!..I read a lot of your columns and enjoy reading them. Keep up the great work. I don't understand why people ( especially in the media ) call u and your writings bigoted and racial. The facts don't lie. I look 4 ward to future readings from you...
For many years, I have been deeply enriched and enlightened by the writings and spoken words of Pat Buchanan. I am currently reading his “Suicide of a Superpower” and although disturbing, it brings, as always, the valuable lessons of history into the present. While reading Pat’s writings, I at times find myself asking the question; how can one man know and understand so much? I count myself as one of his students and am very grateful that he has taken the time to teach so many of us.
New Subscriber -old fan
Pat..Just want you to know..I have been a fan since I was a teen..in hte 60\'s..Don\'t always agree.. But many times I do. Keep it up..
