Run Pat, Run!!!
If you were President, Pat, and Congress was comprised of 51% of members who shared your views on foreign policy, immigration control, and cultural and economic protectionism, America would be back on top within ten years. Thanks for all your intelligent, well educated insights. Please reconsider and Run Pat, Run. We need you.
Thoughts on Ron Paul
I really like Ron Paul and would like to hear your opinion on him. I have great admiration and respect for you and your political thoughts and beliefs. Ron Paul is the only candidate worth voting for. Thanks Chris Williams
Churchill, Hitler and the Unnecessary War
Pat, thank you for your book "Churchill, Hitler and the Unnecessary War". It is enlightening and factual. You have been my hero for decades; I even voted for you, even though I mostly vote Dem. I am left leaning Centrist and agree with you 99% of the time. Please don't ever stop your crusade for truth.
Endorse Dr. Paul
I think around December or January that you endorse Ron Paul for the Republican Presidential Nomination. Given the current field of candidates and your consistent non-interventionist position in regard foreign policy, I do not think you have another option. My belief is that Dr. Paul would win the general election in a landslide but faces a very difficult challenge to get the nomination. You sir could change that.
Why the Republi-Crats Can\'t & Won\'t Fix the Economy
The direct causes of the Great Recession and soon to be Second Great Depression can be directly attributed to the policies initiated, promoted and put into effect by both the Republican and Democratic Parties.
To fix the economy the Parties would have to accurately identify the root causes, and to do so would reveal that they are the very ones responsible for the polices that lead us to this situation, and therefore condemn themselves as to being incompetent bordering on criminal, or as good old fashioned sellouts! This would finish off both Parties and therefore they will not identify and address the roof causes.
Do you all think either party is going to admit that they are the cause of all our problems? I think not, Expect no plausible plan from either Party Do prepare for a total Economic meltdown ending in chaos and mob/gang rule and then Martial Law courtesy of Home land Security. But cheer up: The Retention Camps are ready and waiting.
Longing for the America that once was...
Whenever I read your pieces, I grow ever more nostalgic for an America that I will never know. A 23 year old WASP, I cringe to think what the USA will look like when I\'m 80, and shudder to think what will become of like minded people.
However, we cannot dwell on the gloomy aspects of the changing America. Harrowing obsession must give way to stoic acceptance, and we must focus on preserving and promoting our vision of the national consciousness.
Who Will Carry the Tourch?
Mr. Buchanan, you completely changed my worldview from that of a typical college graduate to a conservative member of the Brigade. I believe that if it wasn\'t for your eloquence and experience they would never let you speak about your views on TV. I wonder, when you are gone who will (be allowed to) carry the message of true conservatism to the people? May you live forever sir.
How about a Buchanan campaign for the Republican nomination, sir ?!
Then Thune as VP-candidate could be nice.
I\'m Changing Party Affilation
My family has been Democratic since the Whig Party died. I'm now changing from Democrat to Independent because in WV an Independent can vote for either party in primary and I will vote for Ron Paul!!!
Pat, thank you very much for you fight with cultural Marxism.
I read your article in the Tampa Tribune about staying out of Russia\'s affairs. As a someone who has studied US/Russian relations, I was very impressed by your truthful perspective. As my political views moved from rather Marxist to libertarian conservative, I have continued to enjoy reading your commentary. I rarely find commentary that considers cultural and social aspects within the economical and political backdrop. For such perspectives are laudable indeed!
Our Culture Warrior Elite
It is currently 2011. I went back to read your perspective on the Iraq War only a year after the Battle of Baghdad. You pointed out how Wolfowitz and other assorted neoconservative interests drove Bush to make that mistake. You had amazing clarity in a confusing situation. At the same time, your identification of Americans not liking Mr. Mankiw\'s ideas proved prophetic. If we can look to what you\'ve said in the past and see how frequently helpful your ideas were for the American people, then we can be reassured that your current publishing\'s still give the American people what they need to know.
Love your editorials
I have been reading your editorials on Yahoo for years. It seems that Yahoo has stopped or at least delayed your messages. However, I find them insightful, spot on and relevant. The country needs help, and hopefully more will read your editorials and realize you have the answers, if only people would listen.
Took me a while to discover you
I\'d like to say that I am a big fan. I first heard of your book close to ten years ago, shortly after I arrived in the US, but I didn\'t get the name right because I didn\'t speak English. Not until about three months ago did I come across a reference of your name and who you were. I am a legal immigrant and I support your views.
Churchill and Hitler
Really appreciate your novel insights into the First and Second World wars - having been born in England in 1938 I can relate fully to many of your observations concerning that country and how it lost it's Empire. Now that I am a citizen of these United States I would welcome a similar in-depth study and (perhaps your next) book on just how we (the US) have lost almost all the benefits of our revolution!!
Neocons and Foreign Policy
Thanks for all your article, books and television appearances. You\'ve really educated me [correctly] about what the real conservatives and Republicans should believe and advocate in foreign policy. I\'m a proud isolationist and yes, Mr. Buchanan, \"making the world safe for Democracy\" is a progressive idea. No real conservative support our foreign policy over the last 100 years.
Hey Pat, I typically am in agreement with your articles and love your sensible views on all topics. I am perhaps, only in opposition to you when it comes to the curbing of our rights for supposed safety. While I know that this sections title asks for no specific comments, I cant help but ask why you made Ryan the president in today\'s article and Ron Paul as speaker; and simply didn\'t make Ron Paul the president; since if we want to save our country he is likely the only hope, since you aren\'t running!! PS - I checked the box to denote that I am human, but some liberals may contest that as merely my own personal belief that they don\'t share !! lol.
PJB, an American Patriot
Pat, It appears lame politicians, charged with the solemn duty to guide our nation in the ways of government, have brought us to this new era of \"The Great American Reckoning\". It is a sad sight to behold.
You were all over these issues years ago. You warned us; most slept through the sirens. Now we must pay the piper.
I am forever grateful to you for your brutal honesty in warning us about our wayward paths. Your enemies attempted to vilify you, and you suffered many offenses for your honesty. You said what people did not want to hear. And now we are paying for OUR transgressions of electing the spineless and, dare I say, traitorous to run out nation\'s government.
But all is not lost. The American stock is tougher than those who attempt to bring us down. We will prevail, but the road will be hard. Thank you again, sir. Hopefully, we will listen this go-round.
I would be willing to bet that nobody watched more \"Crossfire\" shows than I did back in the 80\'s. It was appointment TV for me... everyday Monday thru Friday. Get home from work, mix a drink and watch Pat and Tom duke it out. Sure would like to see you back in that format. There\'s nothing like it on TV today. It would be an instant hit... at a time when we need intelligent debate more than ever.
The Great Betrayal
This book is right-on for today. The book jacket comments stress your writing ability. But your insight to the future of our country should have been taken seriously in 1998.
Thank you so much!
Dear Mr. Buchanan,
Thanking you for your intellectual honesty. I have read your blog for hours at a time and learned so much about our country and our government, world history, information I just can't find elsewhere, or do not know where to look. Grateful to feel I know you and learn from your knowledge of a very important chunk of America.
Dear Pat, ,
I lived in the USA from 1987 to 2009 and have been a big supporter of yours -- both on your writing and your political endeavors. Congratulations for all you have given your followers. We are better people thanks to your efforts.
Thanks for the Response Note Pat
Thanks for your recent \"thank-you\" note in response to my recent comment to you on this site urging you to run for President in 2012. You declared in the note that you had \"already run three times, and that was enough, and get yourself another boy.\" I had to chuckle . I already knew your campaign history as I had worked very hard for you on all three runs.
I am the guy that placed in your hands the book \"American Political Economy\" back in 1992 in Newport, CA on one of your visits here. This book, published in Germany, was a compilation of the articles written by Frederick List, German Economist, a contemporary of Alexander Hamilton. They were published in a Philadelphia newspaper wherein he lambasted the theories of Adam Smith and instead promoted the theories of National Economy (later renamed the \"The American system\" by Clay during the Lincoln era. So thanks again.
This makes four such notes from you over the years. They will be very collectable as they will be from the man who warned us endlessly, offered his services 3 times to do what works, but was rejected by a dumbed down and ignorant America. When this economy totally collapses you can announce, \"I tried to educate you folks. I wrote hundreds of articles, numerous books, and still you did hot listen. Better luck next time if there is a next time.\"
You have my vote!
If you deside to run for president, you have my vote hands down.
No two part deal
Pat, we can\'t put our wonderful country through these debt negotiations again in six months. When will Congress get to addressing the pressing issues of the economy? The American people deserve better than this.
