Pat, thank you for the insightful and well written pieces. Not sure if you recall, but I was your intern on Crossfire during the Manuel Noriega fiasco in Panama, Dec 1989-Jan 1990. I have kept and continue to support our conservative heritage.All the best to you and Shelly.
A Positive Voice For Us
As a long time Republican and Chair of our local Republican Town Committee I find your books, of which I have several, and your columns an imprtant source of information which I like to share with our committee at our monthly meetings. Your insights are both appreciated and necessary.
Time to get back on CNN
Bring back "Crossfire" on CNN. You and Alan Colmes would be a good fit. I'm a Democrat who misses the good ole days of intelligent Monday through Friday debate that you and Tom Braden provided. I remember the time Braden walked off the show because he felt the guest insulted him. You were quoted later saying that it is supposed to work the other way around. I laughed to myself for about a week after I heard you say that. Ahhhh..the good ole days
Pat, I'm watching you with my babies,Kieran,13, and Matt,12. They don't know who you are. It took them 2 minutes to say, "I Llike this guy, mom. Who is he?" Thanks..
Still Miss You on MSNBC
Hi, Pat, I'm a fan. Not because we agree about everything; there's plenty of topics I hold a different opinion about than you do. However, I always enjoyed seeing you on MSNBC because I appreciated your sincerity and passion, your directness, and your respect for others. Plus, you're a fun and entertaining guy! Hope your life is going well these days.
To Mr. Pat Buchanan
Dear Pat, I hope Fox News calls you soon. You deserve your own show, for the many years of service you and your sister have given to this Country. Your Books are eye opening to anyone that cares about this Country\'s future. God bless you and your sister and Great health to you both.
Dear Mr. Buchanan, I have long admired your honesty and logic of your arguments. The trouble is not enough people are listening to you. We have the same problem here in Ireland, where the clerics abuse scandals have made \'priests\' a toxic brand. I will purchase your latest book.
God bless, Martin Gordon. Cork.
My husband and I listened to you on Howie Carr's Boston radio program the other day. You made us laugh, and ponder. I admire you more than anyone else in politcs or the media for your knowledge, honesty, and the strength of your convictions. Thank you for all that you do to keep us mindful of where America has been and where she is headed.
Wisdom is your friend
Pat, I have read all your books and there is no question that you are not just knowledgeable. You are one of the wise men of this country who sees beyond the mountains of facts and circumstances of the moment. I look forward to each of your columns, and of course, to your next book. I have read all of them. Jackie Pierce
Chen- Chinese activist
Please do a commentary on the Human rights activist in China that our Anti-life President and Secrectary of State failed to help.
I sure applaud your honesty and the frankness in your writing and interviews I've seen. While I admire these traits there seem to be many more that prefer ignorance and their imaginary history. Keep pumping out the books and the truth, someday truth will be more important than deception and your books will be one of the few sources for that.
Excellent Work, Again
I have read most of your books published in the past 10 years, all of which are excellent in their historical analysis and foresight into where our country is heading. Your views are spot-on regarding the threats to our future as a nation.
As a 51-year old commercial banker with an income in the top 5%, I am reflexively uncomfortable with your economic nationalism. However, I think of my blue-collar, devout Catholic, Korean War-vet father with his high school diploma, a farmer and 30-year lab technician for Allied Signal. We were not moneyed, but we had a good lifestyle. Today, what does a 30-year old man without college do to support a family, other than install cable and satellite TV? The post-NAFTA de-industrialization of America has damaged the working class, from a social as well as economic perspective.
America is not the country where I grew up, and I’m worried about our future. Hopefully, millions will read Suicide of a Superpower, and do so with an open mind.
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
