Writing for 37
I enjoyed the show where you were on with the five speech writers. It was informative and interesting. I was born in 1976, but I enjoy Nixon-Ford history. Thanks for backing of President Nixon. Keep up the good work, thanks!
Your Only Fault
Your only fault...That your writings are not in every home in America. Keep up the great work.
Who Are We Fighting For
Dear Mr. Buchanan,
Thank you so very much for your always insightful columns especially, \"Who are we Fighting For\". Living here in the Detroit area, the local media coverage of Pastor Terry Jones is appalling. A constant drumbeat of why is he here to cause trouble; and the cost of this circus is constant.
What is surprising are the on-line comments below the articles from the usually liberal newspaper, The Detroit Free Press. People are very upset about the free speech elimination of the Pastor. Your column puts what is happening here into perspective. Too bad this column is not published in the Detroit papers for others to understand what is actually taking place.
Pat, the best part of my week is when I see a new blog out from you. You\'ve made learning about history and politics so enjoyable, and for that I am grateful. I\'m just starting your book \"A Republic, Not an Empire\"... looks like it\'s gonna be a good one!
It is tough to be enthusiastic about the present when you are 67 and most of what you thought you knew is what you did not know. I am not sure if I am on target here but my list of questions never focused on conspiracies, affirmative action, and things that may be popular but not going to help with jobs or economic growth. I enjoy your website very much and you ask really good questions when you are on Morning Joe and Hard Ball. Not so sure about the unpaved dirt road.
Where Do You Sleep?
Do you have a home and a bed to sleep in? I ask this because you are on TV constantly and have a cranky personality. I\'ve decided this is due Sleep Deprivation so would you please go to bed and stay there.
Go Pat Go!
Buchanan/Paul 2012! Have you considered it? Please do!
Keep It Up, Pat!
Pat\'s intelligent articles both ask and answer questions. Sadly, our leaders don\'t appear capable of doing either intelligently. Why are we so intent on initiating wars with nations that aren\'t a threat to us? Is this the result of our obsession with democracy and freedom?
Where did this madness come from? We are a Republic, a nation of laws. Yet, we ignore our own laws for political expediency and partisan gain. Our political selfishness led to embracing the Partisan System, which may well be our downfall. A Democracy is a government of mere men and its battle cry is Freedom. Unrestrained by wisdom and morality, that freedom becomes anarchy.
Buchanan 2012 GO PAT GO!!!!
Pat do not allow the Communists to intimidate you! Take back the party! Take over the Tea Party she is yours!!!!! I am 26 years old and never had the chance to vote for someone that represented me. Please do not allow the Reagan generation to have all their dreams destroyed give us a chance! We will never get to save our country or give our children what we had growing up without you... I have to listen to a 20 yr old Culture War speech just to feel American....Don't abandon us Pat not now!
I am currently finishing your book \"The Death of the West.\" It\'s refreshing to have someone of your courage and intellect to speak the truth on these important issues. It would be great if you were our president but I doubt your going to ever run again, and I don\'t blame you, the cultural Marxists would destroy you worse than before. What I would suggest for you Mr Buchanan, is to use your vast knowledge, research, and abilities to write a definitive book on what specific and concrete steps, policies, actions, laws, etc, a new platform essentially that would outline and describe exactly what the American people and politicians need to do to achieve these great changes. Your deep insight and first hand knowledge on these important issues will make it a lot easier for us younger generations to hopefully carry them out in the future. I know many of us that agree with you and like your views, but how do we do it? What would you have done if you were elected and given free reign to turn our country around. We need a blueprint for a better future, please consider this idea for a future book.
Though I often posted comments to your articles before that feature was removed, this is my first note. As a 75 year old who is a dual retiree; USAF and U.S. Civil Service, I greatly admire the wisdom and clarity exhibited in your writing. The problems that confront this nation are many. However, isn't the source of each and every one of them our corrupt partisan political system? Doesn't placing the party and it's interests above the nation create the problems? If all of our elected and appointed leaders had only the best interests of this nation within their hearts and minds, could we have the problems we have? I think not.
2012 Go Pat Go!!!
Hi Pat, I am 53 yrs old and got hooked on you from the days when my dad watched Crossfire. You make more sense than any R (or D) I know. You would fill a tremendous void that the current front-runners have created. You came close in 1992. I encourage you to run for the sake of our country and my four children. Run. Please!
I fear for my country. I fear for my young kids future. Seems like no one in D.C gives a damn about the country, only about personal wealth and taking care of their cronies. Sir, I feel that America has not much time left.
Today's Best Conservative Thinker
I hope Pat feels personally vindicated by the rise of the Tea Party, which is as much a repudiation of neoconservatives such as George W. Bush and Dick Cheney as it is of Obama. Pat was essentially run out of the party for his views on economic nationalism, and non-interventionalist foreign policy -- two issues fueling Trump\'s rise in the polls.
There\'s an old saying, \"Time and truth go hand-in-hand.\" Time has proven the wisdom of Pat\'s brand of conservatism, while compassionate conservatism has been relegated to the ash heap. Well done, Pat.
Yes, Pat, Run
Yes, Pat, Run. You are not Republican or Democrat. You're a patriot, someone who truly loves America. Not like the faux-Patriot pols who say one thing and do another. Yes, Pat, run.
Your Time Has Come
Pat, a long, long time supporter, I beg you to run again. This nation needs you now like never before. You are the only public figure who has the knowledge and wisdom of Political History and the American System of Economics. You will lead our nation away from its present Road to Ruin to a path of National Recovery. You will bring manufacturing and thus wealth back to our shores and expose the greatest scam ever perpetrated on any people ie the fraudulent system of a World Economy - when there is in fact no such thing. We only have global markets in a world composed only of National Economies.
The Great Betrayal
Your book, The Great Betrayal is a book everyone needs to read right now. Obama and his Dems, and all the liberal Republicans can battle all they want over what the US budget should look like, but at the end of the day if we don\'t bring industry back to the US and fix the trade imbalance we are destined to become more like the rest of the world- a third world nation economy. It is jobs and production (GDP) that creates the revenue for the expenses of the government and ultimately improves our standard of living. Your book shows how we can get back to the American dream. Until we accept the truth of that book our current problems will remain and probably worsen.
Go For It Pat, Run Again!
It is about time some one has stood up to Obama. He may be our President, but he does not have our country\'s best interest at heart. He wants to change everything our country has stood for... we need you to replace him and correct the wrong he has done. Go for it, run again. You have my vote and support too.
Need updates on your next book. Thank you.
A Chance for the Left and Right
I am a die hard Democrat. This being said, after listening to you on MSNBC and The McLaughlin Group, I find myself agreeing with you more and more about foreign policy especially Iraq and Iran.
Have you become more liberal or I more conservative? I don’t think so.
Perhaps there is a chance for the left and the right to to find a solution to this mess. I look forward to hearing more of your views.
Civility, Class and Common Sense
I simply felt compelled to say how much I have admired you through the years. From the early days (for me) on Crossfire to now, you have always presented clear and common sense positions with civility and class. Despite your inability to reach the White House, you are clearly among the finest minds in America today. If I can offer anything in return to you, it would simply be the affirmation of an admirer that your counsel to the nation and the world has profound relevance. Be always mindful of the high place to which you have been endowed.
Stay in the game to your dying day, a confounded world needs your perspicuity and sensibility.
A Loyal Brigader
We the people, thank you for your service to your country in giving us a voice that we may not otherwise have. Over the years, I have seen your positions on various issues misconstrued, misquoted and some people just downright repeat the same old lies espoused by Republican (NeoCon) and Democratic pundits. Thank you.
A loyal Buchanan Brigader from East Tennessee.
I just wanted to say to you that, while I often disagree with your views, I always respect your words.
As a long time viewer of \"The McLaughlin Group\", I am often surprised to find myself agreeing with a good deal of what you have to say. I have only recently become a ‘webhead’ and have only a passing familiarity with your writings, but you exhibit clarity in your thoughts and, in this age of \'bloviating\' and vitriol-spewing, a refreshing reserve and gentle manliness.
While this may not be the most appropriate place for me to send this letter, it expresses thoughts that I have had for some time. I try to listen to voices on all sides of any debate before I form my own opinions, and you, sir, are my ‘conservative’ of choice.
Truly a Thinker
I’m basically a liberal, but I agree with just about everything Pat says on foreign policy, which is perhaps not too surprising. But I also enjoy reading everything he writes, period, even when I vehemently disagree. He is one of the few pundits who is truly informed and truly a thinker, rather than a superficial, second-tier partisan like so many others. His criticisms of liberals and liberal thinking are often valid.
I Look Forward to Your Books
Although I do not always agree with you, you are the most thoughtful political commentator of our times. I look forward to your books and frequent appearances on MSNBC and PBS.
Your insights – and refusal to adhere to the party line – are always refreshing. Thank you, sir.
