The Ron Paul Possibility
I appreciate all you do, and I voted for you for my first presidential election in 2000. This year I was a delegate for the state of MN - another first!
Because of the treatment Ron Paul received, and the fact that I don't see a big difference between Obama and Romney, Romney would be having a large number of people taking one last look at him before the election if he would do one thing: Ask Ron Paul to be his personal Constitutional Advisor and/or ask him to be his Treasury Secretary. This would give him a boost in the polls guaranteed.
I've tried to ask the Romney campaign to do this with no response.
Take care and I love your site, thoughts and columns,
One time I strongly disagree with you
I strongly disagree with you supporting Romney. His platform calls for re occupying Iraq and Afgahnistan AND starting a war with Iran. As a veteran myself, I cannot vote to send the next generation to their death of a life of physical and mental disability. I will have to stand with Jack Hunter when he says "Obama does not deserve to be re elected and Romney does not deserve to win the election" I am writing in Ron Paul. One might claim I am wasting my vote but if that were true, we would still have the Wig party.
Romney for President
I have been reading you for years and for almost all the time you were right. However, in your last column *Romney for President* you ending is (quote) :"Romney alone offers a possibility of hope and change."(end of quote)
Well, let me finish that--if Romney is a president, the US has a new war with Iran under an Israeli Command.
All the best
an army of one
An Army of One
You probably, don't care for this recruiting slogan for the U.S. Army but here is a story of an "army of one" you might appreciate. You'll have to take my word for this.
Attending a large church with a congregation of 200+ several elections ago they conducted a vocal poll. A few voiced their support for Al Gore when his name was called. The majority shouted their support for G. W. Bush when he was called. When they called for supporters for Pat Buchanan, I was the only one shouting support for you. An intrepid army of one.
God bless you.
Voted for you Pat
Greetings Pat. Today I had the pleasure of standing in line for 1 hour and 15 minutes, just to participate in early voting in Maryland. The wait was worth it because I got to cast a write in vote for one Mr. Patrick J. Buchanan, a true conservative candidate. I'm done with false choices and phoney conservatism offered up by the modern day Republican party. If I were living in a swing state, I might have held my nose and voted for the lesser of two evils, but in Maryland it was a logical choice to go ahead and vote my conscience. It felt good for a change, rather than making a deal with the devil every 4 years
Mr. Buchanan, your books are the most informative in contemporary political literature. Thank you.
The "Fulda, Ohio" is just a teaser to get your attention (I know some of your relatives from that area). I am a Democrat who misses your big grin and laugh on "Morning Joe". Also, I miss your political insights, although I often do not agree with them. I know about the MSNBC/book problem, but don't know where to find you on the air. PLEASE INFORM ME OF TV CHANNELS, DATES, AND/OR TIMES THAT YOU ARE ON THE AIR. Waiting to hear from you. :-) Ruth Ann Murphy
VAST LEFT-WING COVER-UP
Dear Pat -- The accusation of \"cover-up\" must be expanded to \" VAST LEFT-WING COVER-UP\" -- so as to include not only \"L\'Affaire Benghazi\" but also \"Fast and Furious\'\" and about 50 other spins, scams and lies which characterize the ongoing \"AGE OF SCAMALOT.\"
Please call or send a direct email address ASAP so that I can share several other \"War of Words\" and \"War of Narratives\" ideas and initiatives with you.

Pat the conservatives of the heart are more destitute than ever, millions of Americans who's ancestors where middle class or upper middle class now reside in trailer parks and very dangerous urban neighborhoods with several adults to a home just to get by. And none of us thinks anyone cares save you and maybe Ron Paul you need to speak out. Pat you aught to post videos reading your column or tour the nation seeing how we are living and expose it. Many of us are too proud to receive assistance and will never retrieve our 25% that government steals for benefits we will never receive. I am afraid America is going to become like Venezuela I would hope that if that were ever the case you have some friends in the military and are able to put yourself in the position Franco was in. God Bless You you are the only one a lot of people believe in. I wish you'd run for Governor of FL we could use you and it is very strategic. If America does fall apart a Paleocon takeover of the South now can save the colonies and the Rebublic.
You Are Missed
Though I take great issue with your political views, I never take issue with your sincerity. The knowledge of history you share to illustrate modern problems, your command of the facts, and the integrity you displayed on votes that were miscast for you in the 2000 election, have made me a great admirer of yours. You are truly a rare breed in political discourse, bold statements that reflect your views without modulation; in many instances to the peril of your own career. The difference between you and other more "popular" conservatives is stark. When their analysis is obviously a one sided sales pitch I change the channel, when you offer analysis I listen up! Keep challenging EVERYONE....even the "fair and balanced" folks.
Mr. Buchanan: From the perspective of this young man, we live in a complex world. It's nice to have someone whose opinions one can trust and turn to for a little guidance. Thank you for your writings and all you do. -Matt Reed

Dear Pat: Kristoll & Co. [the Impostors] should be given their pink slips by the few remaining real Republicans. They should be forced to split and rename themselves as REPUBLIKUDS, reflecting their raison d'etre and agenda.
Try not to miss Mclaughlin Group too much and stay healthy. You're commentary is the only reason I watch. I consider myself a loyal Pat Buchanan trooper. I grew up with everyone dismissing and calling you a racist, etc., but you're not that at all after I started reading your stuff. You just tell the historically-based truth in your eyes. I'm 29, so I'm hoping you'll stay healthy a long time while I pass my days enjoying politics in the US.
The Unnecessary War
I am reading your book "Thee Unnecessary War".As I was frowing up my uncles called WWII "Roosevelt's war" I never understood why they felt the war was unavoidable since it was obvious that Hitler would have over run the world. Now I can see their view point, so thank you for lending me the understanding of why they felt the way they did.
Good lookin out
I remember you from back in the days before Fox news and talk radio. doing battle on CNN's crossfire. You were flying without a net and to me everybody who came after owes a huge debt to you. You say things that need to be said and cause a huge portion of repubicans to cower in fear. Most of your critics will be forgotten when they write the history books but you will be remembered. I don't always agree with you but so what, you along with Ralph nader and Ron paul for that matter earned the right to be flawed once in a while.
Wishing you the best
You have a new reader!
I read an article titled, "Folks, We have a new ball game", in our local paper today and liked it so much that I found it on your site and posted it to my FB page. Then I found another article regarding the assassination of our ambassador in Libya and posted it as well. I think for certain, I am going to have to check out our Library on post and see if they have any of your books. I am certainly intrigued. Thank you!
Hello, Mr. Buchanan.
I have read several of your books recently, including "Suicide of a Superpower" and "Churchill, Hitler and the Unnecessary War." I appreciate your effort to educate with facts, logic and common sense. The attacks you have received calling you a racist, etc., reveal the Medieval and Dark Age mentality of many of your critics, most of whom are not being forthright or honest. I am most sorry for African-Americans and other minorities who have been misled by the leftest establishment and don't understand that you are working hard to do what is best for them.
Please continue your patriotic work to educate and inform. I hope America's religious communities can understand the message you are giving and unite beyond religion and or denomination for the common good of our nation.
Thanks again, Pat,
Suicide of a Superpower
Just finished reading Suicide of a Super Power. Your work is one of the finest I have ever read and I believe you are right-on from the first page to the last - very incisive. Not only do you identify the problems this nation faces and their impact but you proceed to specify in very direct and certain terms your proposed solutions. I endorse your solutions 100%. Thanks for your work. Hopefully, we can gain sufficient support to implement your recommendations.
I'm So Glad You're On Fox!
I just had to tell you how much I enjoy seeing you on Fox.
I know you liked being on MSNBC, but I didn't care to watch the "others" in order to hear your viewpoints. I like to see you on Hannity, Greta, and with the panels. In fact, I especially the "Brother" Hannity routine. There's no one like Patrick F. Buchanan!
LOVE YOU PAT
LOVED seeing you on Hannity My Dad Campaigned for you a while back. I agree 100% with your views we need to leave the middle east and stop all the foreign aid. I also agree with Ron Paul who is just a wonderful human being delivered over 4000 babies and certainly educated a generation of people on the constitution and Bernanke. Saw you recently on EWTN with Raymond Arroyo. I wish FOX News would Talk more about Romney then Obama. Romney needs more exposure Obama less. Many Traditional Catholics Love Dr. Paul why doesn't EWTN invite Dr.Paul on.
on Hannity's show
Your view about middle east uprising was right on. A true cover-up! No concern about the four men who died - the election is more important to Obama.
America's last crusade
Your article "America's last crusade" was spot on. Very few leaders take the time to consider history with the likely untoward responses that come with their imposed ideology. Thank you for your writings.
