You Did a Great Job Today All By Yourself
I have to say I get offended at how much time Joe takes off, but I want to compliment you on how well you did taking the conservative position all by your lonesome. You made so many good points. I just can\'t believe that Donny D does not get how workers, not fat cats get hurt by luxury taxes, even when we have proof! I live in Wichita, KS and the machinist unions, although many are pro-Obama, are not happy about his corporate jet remarks. The workers will pay, not the owners of the jets. Democrats do not understand anything that is at all counter-intuitive. I am sick of these secret meetings. I want a fight on the floors of the House and the Senate.
Let Donny Deutsch Pay For It
Donny did his best to accuse you of being an amoral person in regards to the rich paying more taxes regardless of it\'s effect on the economy. I say, \"Let\'s compromise\" and let the rich Democrats raise taxes on themselves. That would take care of a bunch of debt and salve their bleeding hearts.
Afghanistan War and Costs
Pat, I am from the same tradition as you. I once sponsored a debate between Buckley and Schelisinger. Listening to you on Morning Joe, despite our common roots, we have arrived at divergent views. All this debate about cutting Medicaid to the poor when we are spending two billion a week on war trying to impose democracy on a tribal nation doesn\'t jibe. To whom much is given much is expected. Love your books.
You were magical on Morning Joe this morning! The difference between your simple economic logic and the blatant \"reverse snobbery\" of Donny, Harold and Mika, made you sound like the teacher in the kindergarten. Thank you Pat for your wisdom and maturity.
You have been spot on for over 35 years. Your insight and foresight has been tremendous. Pity you were not able to get into a position of power to get us on track and keep us there. You have been a lighthouse for us over the years. I fear, the ship that is our country, will hit the rocks in spite of all your efforts. God bless you my friend.
Where have you been?
We miss you on Morning Joe.....your voice has been desperately needed and missed. My husband and I are big fans. Loved your book 'Right from the Beginning.'
Keep espousing intellectually consistent traditional conservatism informed by the Truth.
Tariff Revenue Could help Eliminate the Deficit
Imposing Tariffs on nations who employ restrictions on our products along with Tariffs to protect certain US industries, could generate revenue to the government plus create new jobs and protect existing ones in industries we want to protect. Why haven't any politicians jumped on this issue?
Dear Mr. Buchanan,
Every time I hear anything regarding immigration issues in reference to our neighbors to the south, I am reminded of something you said several years ago on the program "Crossfire". You warned that we were in danger of losing our country and that by a certain year (was it perhaps 2018 or 2020?) that English would no longer be the dominant language here in the U.S. This has never left my mind for some reason. The census statistics are now out. The Hispanic population in my home state of Alabama has increased by over 200,000 since the last census was taken. Please run for President again. We need an hero who is not intimidated by the left. You would have my vote once again.
The Dumbing Down of America's Youth
I agree wholeheartedly with your article. Education today is very scary. I am a substitute teacher and am in the classroom daily while school is in session. Not only do they have no grasp of history, most of them, even the native born, do not have good English skills. They do not read, though looking through the literature textbook, I find quite a bit of the choices uninspiring. Please continue to make the American public aware of the failure of the education system.
Ron Paul, Pat Buchanan 2012!
Please run with Paul and or rerun yourself for the presidency. Like Ron Paul your message resonates now more than it ever has. Please consider it, America needs you!
The Dumbing-Down of America
I wholeheartedly agree with you! This has been happening for quite a while now, and it shows.
Fed up with Freeloaders
Liked the article Pat! Keep up the good work.
Robert Taft Tradition
Great article about freeloading Nato. We need to shed a lot of our "entangling alliances."
"This is straight out of the Robert Taft tradition that America does not fight other countries' wars or pay other countries' bills."
Actually it goes clear back to the Washingtonian and Jeffersonian doctrines of no entangling alliances.
PLEASE RUN FOR PRESIDENT
Dear Mr. Buchanan,
You are the only person out there who is truely deserving and worthy of being President of the United States. You are the only person who will fight the pornography industry, and stop Islamic immigation into the U.S.
It is your duty to run. You have great intellect and knowledge. Please run for President, the country needs you!
A Rebellion Not Our War - 2
Your commentary in the Washington Times on 10/5/1998 regarding the "humanitarian disaster" in Kosovo and our involvement in it, is appropriate to our situation in Libya today. You asked why Kosovo when Algeria was burning. Today we ask the same questions about Libya. Soon, after the money runs out, we won't be able to get involved in other countries' wars.
Just thinking back to 1992
I was talking with a carpenter at a bar last night who was born and educated in Ireland. We discussed politics, economics, World War II and current politics. I was impressed with the fact that this "working man" who did not attend college was so articulate and versed in history. He was also open to different ideas. We started discussing Pat B. and I told him how when I was in Law School I wrote a paper on legal issues in the presidential election and was impressed with Pat. We had a lot of fun discussing what America might look like today if Pat had been president during the 90's. We came up with the following:
No NAFTA and sell out to the Chinese
No illegal immigration
Less welfare, more personal responsibility
No wars - no NeoCon stupidity
Probably no 911
well you get the picture.
Pat, we really admire you.
But serioulsy, if only ....
Engaging the Debate
I am emailing from Macomb County, Michigan. We sustained a 25% decline in median household income. We need a voice in the GOP for SANE TRADE. 1854-1948 the GOP was for a protective tariff. Your book, "Betrayal" is dead on. It is great analysis and truer today then ever. Please engage these issues that is destroying our Republic's ability to remain solvent. We need a voice.
Retired WWII Veteran
From Gene R Dick, Chief Medical Service Warrant Officer 2 U.S. Navy Retired. I am a 90 year old WWII vet. I was sunk with the U.S.S. Oklahoma at Pearl Harbor Dec. 7 1941. I am the only man left alive who got off the ship after she was on the bottom of the harbor. I have been reading Pat’s columns for years.
I have been a Proud conservative since Harry Truman sent both the Atlantic and Pacific Fleet to sea over the election period. This was before there was absentee balloting. Harry won, not Republican Dewey. I have been a fan of Pat for many years. I was on the U.S.S. Oklahoma at Pearl Harbor Dec 7 1941 and I am the only man let alive who got off the ship after she was on the bottom. Keep up the good work Pat.
Re The Unnecessary War
Thank you so much for this enlightening book.
Yours Faithfully, Dr. P. Albano
Run for President
Alexander Cockburn, in today\'s CounterPunch, says now is your time to run for president.
I\'ve just finished reading your last article about Obama (and Europeans) living in a dream world. As usual a very good and to the point article.
As I see it, and I\'m sure many others do as well, there is only one thing for you to do, Mr.Buchanan - You must once again try to be elected for President of the USA, and save our Western Civilization. Nothing more.
Dear Mr. Buchanan,
I read some of your articles on line related to US foreign policy, and fully agree with you. I like your position of putting America\'s interests first and respect your knowledge and understanding of the complexity of the situation in the Middle East. I initially supported Obama because of my opposition to the Iraq war, but now I am very disappointed in him for his mishandling of many things related to domestic and foreign policy. If you run for President, I would definitely consider voting for you.
Even If He Runs As a Republican
I might even vote for Mr Buchanan if he runs as a Republican even though I have sworn never to vote for either of the Wall St owned parties again.
Give em hell as an Independant Patrick!!!
Capt. KCKPD (Ret)
There are so few Americans like yourself. I agree with several of these folks about you\'d make a great president. You always, like Novak, tell it like it really is...and it hurts the phonies. Keep up the good work. America needs you more than ever.
