Book Looks Great!
Your upcoming book looks phenomenal and crucially important. Thank you for fighting the good fight and for saying what no one else will. I'll be reading. Best wishes!
Suicide of a Superpower
Pat. This is what keeps me awake at night. There is not one thing you mention that we do no empirically see unfolding before our eyes. Logic tells us there is no other conclusion. We lived in the Best of Times. The Worst of Times for the United States of America are just around the corner. And we blissfully and busily carry on our daily toil continuing to ignore reality. It is having \'Skin in the Game\' that made America possible and brought America to where it was. It already is a \"Was\". I thought of congratulating you Pat for telling what is so obvious to so many of us students of History. But it grieves me too much, so Thank You will have to suffice. Fair Winds and Following Seas as we slide down into the Abyss of Mediocrity.
Suicide of a Superpower
I just read the latest book announcement (and some excerpts) in Drudge Report. Can't wait until Tuesday to get my copy. It looks like one more time Mr. Buchanan has hammered the right nail. I hope this book will be heeded as a wake-up call.
The reviews and analyses alone of Mr. Buchanan's new book almost made me tear up in rage. Sir, you're tapping into a long suppressed concern those of us who are aware have. Though I'm 28 and I'm pretty sure my generation is a waste in terms of recognizing these things, it still is nice to hear for the first time an unafraid and eloquent voice.
"Suicide of a Superpower"
Dear Mr. Buchanan:
I have only read excepts of your new book on the Drudge Report, and I can already say with certainty that it will be one of the most insightful books I will ever read. Definitely a very provocative and truthful analysis!
Amen, Brother Buchanan
Every time I read one of Mr. Buchanan\'s articles, I want to stand up and shout, \'Amen, brother.\' What a shame Mr. Buchanan was never elected to a leadership role.
Low Wages is the Culprit
No one is addressing the Core reason the economy is collapsing. The core reason is that Demand is collapsing, And Demand is collapsing because on a national scale, American Worker Wages (non-supervisory), have been sinking yearly since the early 1970\'s. Why have wages decreased? Simple. Wage scale is always a function of the Law of Supply and Demand. The policies that both parties placed upon the nation literally guaranteed low wages nationally. For those from Rio Linda let me be specific, When the economic situation is created whereby the number of Jobs available is decreased, but the number of people that need jobs is Increased, Low Wages is guaranteed, ie Too many people chasing too few jobs makes for low wages - common sense reasoning...
So what is the solution, Completely Reverse Engineer the policies that got us into this mess in the first place.
Chronicle the Demise
I asked you at a KMOX Book Club event in St. Louis a couple of years back, \"Have you gotten to the point where you are getting tired of fighting, and now just feel like, since no one is listening, you are just chronicling the demise?\" I think people ARE now listening. I have voted for you in every election that you were on a ballot. Every word that you write, every word that you say on Morning Joe, inspires. I can almost hear the sadness in your written words sometimes. Don\'t be sad or give up hope. I have a beautiful little boy, being raised right. He will read your books and know where it all went wrong. Thanks to you, he will have an example of what it means to be the last man standing. To be principled to your own detriment. To put self aside for what is right. He will know what it means to be great. One day, someone will right a book about the greatest conservative of the 20th Century, he will read that book...about you, too.
Jobs in the USA
I appreciated very much your insight regarding the exporting of US jobs to China and India etc. You should sponsor debates regarding how to return these lost jobs. It is going to be hard to create many jobs in such a weak economy. I heard you this morning on MSNBC Joe. It is imperative to require these corporations to bring back the jobs to stop the American hemorrhage. I don\'t hear enough discussion on this subject. Save America. Thanks for your insight.
You were the first person I voted for when I turned 18 dutring the 1996 primary. Wish you had won... I have gained a great deal from your books and truley hope that you continue to write more. Looking forward to the new one. Thanks again.
1948 Churchill Confirms Your Thesis
In your book, you quote Churchill in 1949 severely criticizing the British war guarantee to Poland in 1939 (that he applauded at the time), so it seems to me that his own words confirm your thesis. Great work!
2012 Presidential Campaign
Please consider running with Ron Paul in 2012. Both of you are straight shooters and we desperately need that since what we have now is a complete disaster. Our country is broke and it needs fixing.
Clooney Backs Your Words
Marissa Tomei to George Clooney in "Ides of March": "If your boy wins, you get a place in the White House...". Save your breath waiting for Al Sharpton to call Clooney a racist. Maybe it's a POLITICAL race thing?
Dear Mr. Buchanan,
Thank you indeed for your years of dedication and integrity. As a Canadian having grown up with you on Crossfire, I have trouble here in Europe finding journalists with your scope and depth of historical knowledge and insight. Please keep up all the great work.
Run for President!
I never thought that I, a former Democrat (but now a staunch independant), would agree 100% with the views of a conservative. I have followed your columns for a long time, and I have yet to disagree with anything you have said. I wish that you would run for President - I am nearly certain you would be elected - to help return our country to its former glory.
Excited to hear about the new book. Will you be doing signed copies as fund raiser like in the past?
Run Pat Run
Run Pat Run! We need a Fearless President that will stand up and defend the Constitution and tell it like it is.
Thanks For Not Giving Up
You are about the only one left who is still telling the truth about why it is "free" trade that is killing this country. We fought NAFTA and GATT in the early nineties to no avail, and now it seems that the "chickens are coming home to roost." Thank you for not giving up.
You Can Write
Sir, I just finished your book \"Death of the West\" 10 years late but... I am a Black Anglican, if you know what I mean. The Church of England has taken some strange moves in the last 10-15 years! So I now have taken up with the Christian Anglicans from East Africa. They are sticking to the Bible. The English Anglicans seem to be in La La land with their changes. What would Henry the VIII have done? OFF with their HEADS! Regards, Barry
My wife is a Republican, I am a former RI liberal Democrat who was peripherally involved with politics. Imagine me voting for you. We totally agree. We love all of you on the show.
Would like to hear your views on the flaws with the current structure of the presidential debates and how you would structure them if you could.
I Like You Pat and Ron Paul!
Voted for you when you ran for president. Voted for Ron Paul last election and will vote for him this election. I am for freedom and the Constitution. Ron Paul is the only true Statesman running. We all will never agree with anyone 100% but he is the closest we have. He can win! I have heard from a lot of Dems who are voting for Ron Paul because even they will not vote for Obama. With them included he can win. He is the only one who can go up against Obama. Please help Ron win. Your opinions matter! Thanks Connie
Ron Paul 2012
I'm afraid for my kids future. If you don't run please consider endorsing Ron Paul. He is our last hope.
Buchanan: 9/11 Wars, March of Folly
Your critique of the time from Pearl Harbor to the present is right on in 9/11 Wars, March of
I was a voter that truly voted for you in the 2000 election in Florida. No hanging chad here. It was all about trade. No one gets it still. Thank you for fighting the good fight.
