Perpetual War - Why ?
Pat: Our policies are setting us up for a perpetual war with all its ramifications including blowback. It is not a recipe for a safe homeland, so we invest our freedom and our treasure in homeland security. "They attack us because they hate us" is good domestic politics but it only destroys any chance of a real debate to address the issue.
Pat: you need to call a conference by inviting both the Right and the Left to debate this issue. We are in a transitional world with enormous challenges that can ill afford a Perpetual War.
Again you are right on target with your most recent op-ed column, "Who Are the War Criminals in Syria?" Thank you for speaking out. And please don't stop. The "rebels" would kill or ethnically cleanse the Alawites, and as many of the Druze, Christians, and, yes, the small Jewish community, as they could get by with, if they won.
Fight for What's Right
Pat- Somewhere I'd read that many years ago, you were a fighter in your youth.
It seems to me the GOP and even the conservative movement itself has been emasculated by an unwillingness to fight for quite some time now. It isn't p.c. to directly confront. Many of us struggle so much merely surviving in this dismal economy that by day's end there's no fight remaining in us. I sent the Washington Times a letter over ten years ago criticizing a journalist who'd written an article which on page one included the quote: " 'Conservative activist' is an oxymoron." Of course my letter was not published. If now is not the time for us to fight, shall we ever know when it is time?
The one criticism I have of all conservative leadership: while many offer trenchant insight, seldom if ever is any proactive call to action ever made. Is our ongoing decline in the Christian West inevitable? Only if we continue taking a 'deer in the headlights' approach rather than fighting for what we know to be right.
Pat, I remember well arriving in USA mid 80's and US made Fruit of the Loom underwear that would fit better than the Asian junk.
I still own and wear 3 US made sweaters even though they are more than 25 years old.
Please keep up the good work...
GOD BLESS !!
Thanks and Perseverence
Thanks for your kind words about Howard Phillips. I too counted him as a real friend and will miss him. We shared the same mentor/professor years ago. May I send you some Christian Reasoner newsletter issues I have written?
Please keep doing just what you have been doing. Your courage and boldness are greatly appreciated.

Congratulations on Publication of your new book in China
Dear Pat: Congratulations on the publication of Suicide of A Superpower in Beijing. I am your chief translator. Reading your book requires a healthy and good heart for America. Translating it has called for meeting with challenges. But I am a veteran with 30 years' experience.
I hope that we can have a second chance to cooperate.

Sometime in the future historians will study Pat's work and ask how this country could have ignored his facts and refused to heed his wise counsel.....
America Made A Big Mistake Not Electing Pat For President.
Pat's Missing Quote
Many years ago I saw you on television and you said, "We don't need a third party. What we need is a second party." I have never forgotten it and I quote you all the time. Thank you. I cannot find it on your quote list so I'm not sure I have it exactly right.
Filling A Great Void
Your leadership, knowledge, integrity, and candor are an enormous relief to souls who seek truth, freedom, and justice. Hope you continue keeping your readers in touch with reality for many more years. It's doubtful you could ever write too many books.
Thank you so much for your perspective... I can remember when growing up that most people around me had common sense
I am reading your \"Suicide of a Superpower\". Too depressing, so I go as long as I can, then rest for awhile. You are saying what I say, with more factual backup. We are tribal, and we revert when we reach limits of resources. No matter how much we want a world vision, the world remains as it is, in spite of our desire to see it otherwise.
We liked to watch Cross-Fire with you and Tom Braden. After watching you for a time we realized that we were totally wrong in our thinking about what Democrats and Republicans stand for. Wait a minute it is Pat Buchanan who is for 2nd amendment rights. It is the Republican for the right of the unborn baby. Oh my we are not Democrats! We never agree with Tom we agree with Pat -- We are republicans! Today we are not sure the Republicans are standing up for the rights our founding fathers fought for us to have, but thanks to you we are engaged and paying attention.
Dear Pat, as a young High school student I stumbled upon your writings, and I am glad for it.
Now at 23 with a History degree, I am glad I have kept your writings close at hand, your wisdom is useful to combatting both Neoconservative ideas as well as Liberal-socialist ones. As a young American I thank you for your work and legacy.
Dear Mr. Buchanan:
Years ago I\'d watch you on Crossfire. At that time I disagreed with you on almost everything. As the decades have passed I\'m amazed at how wise you\'ve become. I now agree with you on just about everything.
Sadly, you are one of the few champions of authentic conservatism still appearing on TV. Your shameful treatment by MSNBC is a reminder of the forces aligned against voices such as yours.
You are good and decent fellow whose virtue is lost on your detractors simply because virtue itself is not a category in their world view. Thanks for your courage in speaking truth to power. Keep fighting the good fight.
Mr. Buchanan, Very few if any current mass media writers hold the distinction of not only being so profoundly right but also being equally capable of clearly and eloquently expressing it. Please keep up the good work, we need you.
The Church Militant . . .
The Church must be obedient, teaching all men and women what Jesus taught us, to be disciples observing all that He commanded us. To be more precise, let\'s be obedient in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self control, against which there is no law. They are spears of the Spirit of God, as written by Saint Paul in Galatians 5:22-23
Let it so be by all Christians, everywhere, regardless of whatever church-brand we belong. Sometimes , we err to use the wrong spears of faith. May God continue to bless you as you lift Him up for all to see and honor.
We need you!
Keep up the good work! We need you back in the front row, getting our Republican forces back in-line with each other, then leading the charge as we take back our nation from the currently failing regime...
Conservative and Thoughtful
Dear Mr Buchanan,
I am not American but I read your articles and find your analysis and reasoning compelling. Thank you for keeping conservatism firmly tethered to thoughtfulness.
Is America Still A Good Country
Pat: Wonderful historical analysis and terrific piece of writing. Thanks so much!!! Redefining the word marriage is all wrong - no procreation possible - should use civil union, partnership, joint venture and other legal terminology....so great to still have you on the American scene!!!
Copyright the name marriage
Since marriage hs been defined for thousands of years as being a contract between a man and a woman I think we are entitled to have the title "marriage" coprighted under that definition. Any other life style should just have to call it something else.
Is America Still A Good Country
Pat...this is the best I've read on the subject...I have been writing about it for a long time--letters, local Guest Columns...I'm exhausted..this was refreshing...thanks...Jack
Thank God that you have put into words the absolute truth about America. We have become more than Sodom and Gomorrah, and I am afraid of what God will do with this nation, because we are beyond the downward path!
Didn't know until today that you had roots in Okolona, Mississippi. I'm from Tupelo, and I enjoy your work immensely.
