Thnnks for the Nixon inspiration
Pat, I just read your article on Nixon and I want to thank you. I am just swamped with work (and the flu) and you mentioning the perserverence of Nixon really raises my spirits. Thank-you!
I have read all of your books and continue to look forward to all of your articles. Thank you for being a true American and for boldly displaying that patriotism. Additionally, you rightfully speak about the need to look out for America first. Entangling alliances and ridiculous commitments have left us exposed and you are the only one talking about this!
One nation under God.
I lost hope in America and I am excited to see that there is someone of your status with a clear head and balls enough to speak your mind on politically sensitive topics. Your name was a bad word in my democratic house growing up, but then again so was "God!" I commend you on your dedication to a real vision of America (under God)...and your ability to invent new "talking points." Crack your whip Pat get the base back on track you have the credibility and credentials. PS. I would love to work for you :)
Right on the money
You are right to remind us all that the biggest threat to the US is not Iran, North Korea, Syria etc... but the balooning national debt. Lavish defense spending ends up making a nation less secure when it can no longer service its debts. It's time that the top brass and politicians of both stripes acted in light of this fact instead of maintaining their self serving policies.
Will GOP hold the line?
Pat, I hope you and whoever we have left in our camp can put some steel in the spines of the GOP in DC regarding the sequester. No matter what vitriol the mainstreammedia hands us, lets push the sequester and just keep telling them that if we cant cut that much out of the government, then the government should give us back the tax increases that they put on net pay starting Jan 01.
My expectation is that after the media blitz about the government workers being furloughed and the poor and downtrodden not being given royal treatment with our money, (not the money of the libs), the GOP will cave.
Truth, Setting Us Free
Thank you, Pat, for putting into Political practice and analysis the words of Jesus, "You will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free."
And for bringing things out of the darkness. We can see your Christian conviction and courage as the impetus for your work.
Thanks for not selling out!
It always irks me when Neo-Cons are presented as Conservatives. I can count on Pat to critique the issues from a true conservative point of view. Thank you, Pat
Pat -- Every time I read your column, I'm so impressed by your thoughtful and right-on comments. You are the only person on the right or the left addressing these very important issues. Thank you so much.
Just wanted to let you know how much you mean to me. Your knowledge of history and politics is so uncommon in today's media. You would've made a great president. I always look to see what your take is on complex issues and you never disappoint with your thoughtful comments. Sadly, you are a reminder of the America of the past. I don't see us returning to it. But thank you, from the bottom if my heart.
Thanks for your clear-thinking, concise opinions. We read your columns with great interest.
I find your commentaries to be most insightful and thought provoking. We watch you every Friday evening on "Mclaughlin Group". Keep up the great work :o)
Kudos from a Liberal
Dear Sir, I love your work on foreign policy. Case in point your most recent, "Why are we still on the DMZ?" Brave, brilliant, and right on target. One just does not find this type of, out-side-the-box piece at the Washington Post or New York Times, and that is a shame.
Also, your economic work is outstanding, especially regarding bringing back tariffs in support of US manufacturing.
Now, I may not be with you on some of the social and religious issues, but I heartily thank you Sir for a job well done.
Sir, you are the only one that can help us. The Libia thing is but a smoke screen. It is AIPAC that is holding back Hagel\'s nomination. Everyone knows this but no media will say so.. You sir are our only hope. Thank you.
Thanks for the detail and research that your books contain.
End of Diplomacy?
Our embassies are now fortresses guarded in many cases by 20 to 30 Marines, plus State Dept. security agents. In much of the world conventional diplomacy is a thing of the past. Have our various wars on drugs, terror, Al Qiada, preventive wars, economic wars destroyed the usefulness of traditional diplomacy and embassies? Have we entered a new era where maintaining embassies and diplomats abroad no longer serve any useful purpose, except as a target?
The biggest mistake Americans have ever made is not electing you as President. You are a true American. Watch you on Mclaughlin Group. If I ever win the lottery I will hire you to attend a party. By the way, it is illegal to ask a suspected illegal immigrant for ID but not to kill a suspected terrorist. RIP U.S.A. We are becoming a third world country.
Will you save this Republic?
Pat, if this country is to survive, it will need you to take the lead of a group of folks to turn out the paleocon vote in 2014. Now is the time, this is the day to begin reclaiming what our founders gave to us, if you sound the trumpet that shall never call retreat, millions of Pat\'s Patriots will come out of the woodwork and be the phalanx of Ameican victory over international socialism!
Pat, your Duty to truth is so darn inspiring.
I also love your sense of humor.
The Republican Obsession
Thank you for being one of the view brave voices on the extremely important topic of Israel's all- powerful lobby. It is common knowledge that Israel has a virtual lock on America's foreign policy initiatives. To deny otherwise is pure fantasy.
To my knowledge, during Hagel’s eight hours of testimony, he was not asked a single question regarding Israel’s ongoing policy of illegal settlements in the West Bank. These “settlements” are in violation of International Law, the Geneva Convention and the UN has repeatedly condemned them. Yet, the illegal settlements continue. The Palestinians are being forced to live with this illegal military occupation and watch helplessly while the Israelis continue to steal their land from them, demolishing their homes in the process. What exactly is the policy of the United States government regarding this illegal action by our “greatest ally?”
Whenever anyone questions any Israeli policy, immediately the charge of “anti-Semitic” is made in an attempt to silence all discussion and stop any opposition in its tracks. Pat Buchanan has certainly been the victim of this Saul Alinsky tactic throughout his public life. Question: if it is “anti-Semitic” to question Israeli policies (Invasion of Lebanon 2006, settlements in the West Bank, etc.), why is it that so many Israelis oppose that policy and blame them on radical Zionists? Are they “anti-Semitic” as well? Hardly.
Pat- Great article about the unspoken truth. We are slaves to Israel, and they are no friend to us.
Your friend, JD
Nice review of the Hagel hearing. Nit\'s time to start cutting before the patient dies. Rally the masses now!
A Voice of Reason
Mr. Buchanan, Pat if I may be so bold, for so many years I have admired your stance on so many various issues facing this country. You boldly speak your mind when so many others fall into the trap of wanting to be either politically correct or to espouse some yet undefined political dogma. You do realize that your latest article "The Republican Obsession" will not garner you any favors from either the Republican party or the Israeli lobby. Yet you speak the truth and for that my admiration for you never ceases.
I supported you in the 2000 presidential election and truly regret that you were not our President to lead this nation onto a better path.
Decline of West
Will Durant, author of the volumes entailed The Story of Civilization on page 71 of the first volume concludes thus:
\"The movement of liberation rises to an exuberant worship of reason, and falls to a paralyzing disillusionment with every dogma and every idea. Conduct, deprived of its religious supports, deteriorates into epicurean chaos; and life itself, shorn of consoling faith, becomes a burden alike to conscious poverty and to weary wealth. In the end, a society and its religion tend to fall together, like body and soul, in a harmonious death.\"
Hi, Love reading your articles. I have one complaint. The MSM and all politicians keep saying there are 11 million illegal immigrants here. It was 11 million 25 years ago!!! The actual numbers are close to 30 million!! We must seal our borders and stop rewarding law breakers.
You are right
Pat, you are so very right, Obama is destroying the United States republic and the sheeple in this country who believe his every word are as bad as the people who believed Adolf and allowed him to come to power in Germany.
