I just wanted to say what a pleasure it is to read your commentary twice a week. I constantly quote you when debating friends or family on FP. Being from NJ I obviously disagree with you on some issues but your insights are always taken seriously and carefully considered. Keep up the good work. MSNBC is worse off w/o you.
I guess it didnt survive past 2012; one could make the case it didnt survive past 1933 - just a long incremental take down - God bless you brother - you should join Alex Jones' staff.
Thanks for the Education
It may sound a bit odd, but I never thought to Google your name before. Having found this convenient way of saying it, I thought I'd say "thanks" for the education. I am just a middle-aged driver, only two years of college, but thanks to your books and columns, I have learned a very great deal. Although I think I first heard of Edmund Burke and Russell Kirk via Rod Dreher's CRUNCHY CONS, it was you who convinced me to read them. Since that time, I've read Dr. Kirk's THE CONSERVATIVE MIND and AMERICA'S BRITISH CULTURE and am now busy at work on his THE POLITICS OF PRUDENCE. I've also read Burke's REFLECTIONS ON THE REVOLUTION IN FRANCE, NOTES AND SPEECHES ON THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, and LETTERS ON A REGICIDE PEACE. Were it not for your books, I never would have looked into the issue of "free trade." In short, as a result of reading your books, I have gained immensely. Thank you so much for writing them.
Patrick, when are you coming to New England for a book signing? Suicide of a Superpower. Fantastic book.
Finished you wonderful book \'Suicide of a Super Power\'; much of what you draw out in thesis is what I had been thinking, too.
I would just like to say thank you to Mr. Buchanan for his work, and his continuous efforts to enlighten people to the truth. He\'s the greatest president we never had, and one of the few champions of American ideals. God bless you Pat!
Thank you, Pat, for your courage in telling the (unwelcome) truth and defending our values. Don't let them stop you; people need to hear what you have to say, especially in our age when brave and principled men are so hard to find. God bless you, always.
When will you be joining Fox TV?
When will you be joining Fox TV? You would be a perfect fit for their information strategy and views of the world and politics.
Love You Pat
Pat I love you, and respect you no end. I read everything you write. We are in serious trouble in our beautiful country and I hope our good God will amplify your words and works to help us all out of this terrible mess, but I'm afraid He will chastise us before doing so. Please know that very many love you and care about you, as do I. Keep on truckin...Mike
Don\'t let msnbc management slow you down. You were right on with you book. Most people that I know agree with you. The gov. and news media are not tuned in on how close your comments are to the real people.
Sucide of a Superpower
I am reading your book and its a great one and tells it like it is. Bless your bones; America needs so many more real Americans with your writing and research skills and with the guts and courage to speak up and out in the face of the American voters who have no idea or do not care what is really happening to America. Dont let up.
As an American patriot I found Suicide of a Superpower quite unsettling, only because I believe you to be absolutely on target. I used to be hopelssly optimistic but have now lived long enough and seen enough to know that our course is more than likely set in stone. I mourn for the country that I love but in the end, our death will indeed be self inflicted. Sad.
Dear Pat thanks for leaving MSNBC,You just gave them credibility.I am just a cattle rancher here in Dakota, But I enjoy your insight and sense of humor.You are about as racist as a black Angus cow in a herd of Herefords, they wouldn\'t know the difference. Your Friend, Dave.
I am thinking you should do a short Thought of the Day video that admiring bloggers like me could embed in their sidebars.
Good Job Pat
Pat, Keep up the good work. Why don't you go to FOXNEWS and help them with the Fair & Balanced script? regards, glenn smith
With friends like these who needs enemies?
I was very surprised that Chris Matthews didn\'t come to your defense with MSNBC. Also that MSNBC took on that notorious anti-white bigot Al Sharpton. You\'re well rid of that gang . Find another network, but please, not FOX. I read your column regularly and like what you write. Any chance now that you have some leisure time of your coming and addressing our group Mid-Coast Forum on Foreign Relations when the weather gets better?. All the best.
Don't bow nor apologize.
I come from a long line of thinkers and I think you are the single voice for rational Americans among a litany of spineless journalists on television. If Mr. Murdoch gives you an offer, take it. Keep up the good fight. It is sad to see how totally pervasive PC has become at the expense of reality and common sense.
We need someone like you!
Pat, I was in NH in 1996 when you asked us to "mount up and ride to the sound of gun fire." My support, and shared faith in your views and values, has never diminished. Unfortunately, we seem to lack the very leadership you exhibit in our current field of presidential candidates. I hope some day that another will inherit your mantle and expound on a political ideaology more Americans agree with than a biased media suggests. Keeping the faith and still riding in the brigade. Cheers!
Although I am an American Jew and a supporter of Israel, I have been a long term admirer of your intellect. You have consistently defended your values and spoken your mind. I am deeply concerned that you are portrayed as a racist and anti-semite. Condemning you as such is an assault on discourse and undermines the true battle to end racism and anti-semitism. I listened to your interview with Juan Williams and, as always, your unfiltered opinions gave dignity to the American ideal of discourse and debate. I hope you continue to cast light on the other side of the coin. Especially when I don't agree with you. Best of luck.
Thanks for helping me see the truth.
Thanks Pat for your courageous stands on the breakdown of our society. I've read four of your books and am looking forward to reading "Suicide of a Super Power". When I read "Day of Reckoning" and "The Unecessary War" I was hooked. I told my wife "the die is cast". I can never go back to the old way of thinking about our history and culture. Your books also led me to the Mises Institute. I feel like a kid in a candy store. I guess I'm a bonified Lbertarian now. I'm 67 years old and I finally get it. Also I believe many young people are getting it too.
Warmest regards, John McClelland
Sorry you were let go!!!
Pat, Was traveling and missed original news. I can't believe Joe and Mika would put up with this. I am very disappointed and will tell them so. Don't always agree with you, but really want to hear you. Best wishes, Ed
I hosted a radio talk show in San Francisco, for over 30 years, but never had a chance to interview Pat Buchanan. My loss. Pat is one of this country's most intelligent, clear-thinking, honest communicators.
The left will never quit hassling true conservatives, so it's best to expect it, and just roll on. God bless Pat Buchanan. Jim Eason
Check Wikipedia for Hyphenated Americans and the problems as early as 1898. Jesse Jackson fomented this again in 1988 to create separate societies. I am an American not a hyphenated American. 83 Yrs old. Two wars. Lvd RR.
Early support, circa 1991
I contributed $1,000 to your campaign, circa 1991, when you and your wife appeared at a hotel near the Atlanta, GA airport. Other attendees included conservative Atlanta business leader, the late Dillard Munford, who eventually passed on supporting you.
I am reading \"Suicide\" as I simultaneously read \"Travels of a T-Shirt\" a paen to Globalization, which is a required reading for my MS Marketing class at Georgia State University.
What is a commercially, successful, 80 year-old, son of Donegal parents to do to change the tide of Socialism and Globalization in the country I love and served honorably in the USN during the \"First Korean War\"?
Proud to say that M&L helped Sam Nunn, a long, long shot get elected to the US Senate in 1972. Sam had the courage to say \"no\" to Desert Storm, a profile in courage, in opposition to Bushes and their ilk, especially the frog man, Phil Gramm, who was in the pocket of the Banksters.
Go Pat, Mike
As a long time ex-Democrat it's alarming to see our freedoms being taken away by the people elected to serve us not control us. We support you Mr. Buchanan and your right to free speech. Keep up the good work for all of us AMERICANS that care so much for ou country. 2012 has got to change the way we run our country, and that comes with respect for our LORD. J WALSH
