a note to Pat Buchanan!

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.
I Feel Cheated
Until recently I believed what the media and the GOP hacks said about you. This year I began reading all your books and your columns every week. If only I knew then what I know now, I would have worked tirelessly to help your presidential campaigns. I feel cheated. I wish I could slap a lawsuit on those who lied to the American public in order to make you seem like a bad choice for President. I fear you were our last hope.
