The War Party
It seems like the dos amigos are at it again. Senators McCain and Lindsay want war with Russia. Can't help but notice not long ago they appeared to be for intervention in Syria, prior to it Libya and now Crimea a place of no vital interest to America, Putin is not a pushover and should not be dictated to, this will only serve to poke the bear. Interestingly I find myself in agreement with Obama on this one issue, while Cheney who left us broke and over extended militarily is out in force advocating for tougher stand with Russia and others, one wonders how long we can keep up the act of the world policeman.
Let me make it clear. I am an Afro-American, born from the line of slavery. I registered republican when I became of voting age. Why? In North Carolina at that time, black teachers were being fired everywhere--backlash to desegregation. There were other manifestations. In my county, it was the republicans mostly who stood up not for blacks but for justice for us. Next voting term, they were voted out. That\'s what motivated me to become a republican. You see, most republicans in my county were segregationist! Is it clear now? They did not want to be a part of us as a group, but they stood their ground for us because of their belief in constitutional freedom and justice. Now, my party has become anti-science, desires to look into your bedroom, lives in the bedroom of global corporations, and has joined in with others to weaken our constitutional system greatly. The party is no longer the common sense freedom party.
Will Complete Destruction Of Russia Make Us Stronger?
Thank you for reminding us of the environment prior to WWII, Mr. Buchanan. Is it US policy to annihilate Russia? With your background and talents you probably know better than most of us do. How can Russia seriously project into the future it\'s capacities to protect it\'s vast regions if it isn\'t able to sustain a potential yet complicated threat to it\'s cherished Black Sea naval base? If our most important naval base was threatened would we cower away hoping not to raise others\' ire? Would we hope no-one noticed, like a rival that might come in and take something else from us? Would America fold and run away? Should Russia fold and run away? Is there a net gain for the USA in seeing the ultimate demise of Russia?
Will the Millenials Save America?
Pat Your column regarding the Tea Party folks is so right on. They will not do what has to be done.
I feel the only folks who have the motivation, energy, and wisdom gleaned from the Internet on which they thrive, are the Millennia\'s. They have utterly been betrayed by both Parties and they know it. - even by their parents and grandparents through their ignorance and inaction.
If the Millennial tap into their own ranks, and I mean to the point of getting themselves elected to office as an Independent on the platform of total moratorium on Immigration, bringing back all manufacturing through Hamiltonian Protectionism, radical reforms which ban money from the electoral process, and ridding the nation of the criminals on Wall Street by re-instating the Glass Steagal Act of 1932, they could easily win as the 99% climb on their bandwagon!
You need to keep sharing your views!
Right from the Beginning
Loved the account of growing up during America's golden age, which I also experienced (5 years behind PJB).
Pat, you have convinced me of a true conservative understanding that takes combines individualism responsibility with the irreducible value of family, redeeming the conservative movement from radical libertarianism and compromises with modern liberalism.
Tea Party Has A Right To Feel Cheated
Great Article, Pat!
Every word was factual!
I quit my Tea Party for the very reasons you stated.
BTW-- I just finished reading your "Churchill & W.W.II" Book, and it is a Stupendous Piece of History! Every American should read this book twice!
I own all your Books, and this one & "Death Of A Superpower" Tie for the Best books you have ever written!

Dr. Pangloss, Free Trader
"Free Trader" exposes yet another folly foisted upon our country by "people who know best"! Having read all of Pat's books, and as a strong supporter of making these mandatory reading for all young people, particularly "Suicide of a Superpower", I struggle with the fact that most folks are oblivious to these self destructive issues. Why? Thanks for your exceptionally good work!!!

A Conservative Force
You are a dying breed- a true conservative that represents the best this country has to offer. Always look forward to your writings.
Why Congress is Held...
You've inspired a retread of James Burnham's Congress and the American Tradition.
Obama is the epitomy of Cicero's definition of a traitor. Recall that Cicero inspired both the age of Enlightenment and our Founding Fathers as well as the Declaration of Independence. His authority is well established and best be heeded. America will wind up on the dunghill of history unless patriots show strenght through revolution, risking life, limb and home.
