Add Opinion Terror to Bratwurst
Several years ago we had a lively town-hall e-mail discussion on a number of topics. One was for you to introduce to your world-wide readers\' vocabulary, the German word Meinungsterror. After all, Gestalt, Angst and, most importantly, Bratwurst have made it.
When contravention or contradiction to political correctness becomes criminalized it must be spoken of as Opinion Terror - or Meinungsterror. Surely, the freest media in the world won\'t do it for us.
Thanks for your contributions to a dwindling world of rationality. Charles Frey
I am a registered republican voter in Missouri, and a conservative. I am pro-life, pro-education and many more but won\'t list them here. I embrace the republican platform, and I believe in God and promote the Gospel. Your articles are right on! During the 2012 election, my 10 year old son made a statement that I think was priceless. He and I were following the conventions, and watching the debates. Out of the blue he said, \' Dad, do you think they\'ll lower the cost of Lego\'s?\" That\'s what a 10-year-old is concerned with in his world, and rightly so. Out of the mouth of babes.
Mr. Buchanan, please continue the fight against the ideology that would bring this country down. Bless your efforts.
2014 and beyond
Pat, now is the time for you and all the Paleocon leadership to begin organizing and planning for a take over in 2014 of US Congress and state Governorships (and Legislatures) by our crowd, so that we will be ready in 2016 to put in an American Government that is more alligned with what the founding fathers wanted than what counter culture liberal UN lovers want us to become. With you as President and our folks in control of congresss & the legislatures, we can ammend the Constitution and impeach bad judges, thereby cementing forever our will as the controlling authority in this country. vivat jesus!
Indeed, right from the start
Dear Sir, I am a St. Louis boy who used to see you and fellow writers from the Globe Democrat at the MOGrill. My late Dad was a fan of yours and Martin Duggan. The Post-Disgrace reigns supreme and the ignorant voters in St. Louis become more ignorant each day. I want you to know that I have always enjoyed your books and your frankness and I appreciate how you never cease to fight for America and point out where we are headed. You inspire me to read the writings of philosophers and theologians and I came across the quote from Tocqueville "America is great because it is good, and if America ceases to be good, She will cease to be great." This really hit me, and I feel that God has had enough of our foolishness, and we are now paying for abusing the freedoms we inherited. You have been one of the few to speak the truth and present the facts as they are, and I wish to say thank you for your efforts. I know my Dad would be proud of you as when he would point you out at the table at the MoGrill and say to me, "And there is Pat Buchanan!" God bless you and your efforts.
I am a democrat. I had the sheriff come to my door a few months ago looking for votes. I told him I was a one issue voter and the issue was immigration. He spluttered and looked confused and said\' \"immigration is a federal issue.\" I told him Sheriff Arpaio of Arizona did not think so. He seemed upset and and more befuddled than any sheriff I I have seen before and soon left. I was hoping he would ask me what kind of democrat I was so I could have told him\' \"I am a Pat Buchanan democrat!\"
God bless and keep you well Mr. Buchanan, we need a million more like you.
PJB SB Required Reading!
I don't agree with ALL of your positions, but I believe your books should be required reading for anyone thinking American who believes there is no common ground between REAL conservatives and REAL Liberals. In fact, In my book The Republicrat Junta, a recurring thread identifies the numerous topics on which Noam Chomsky and yourself espouse the exact same positions. I would vote for a Buchanan/Chomsky ticket (or a Ron Paul/Dennis Kucinich ticked) any day of the week. Keep up the great, HONEST work.
Pat - enjoyed your comments very much last week at the Richard Nixon function. you got a well deserved standing O, whereas Dr. K - great accent after 79 years - did not. best wishes, don brock. (former USDA big cheese)
Out of Order
Mr. Buchanan...one month ago I read "Death of the West" which you wrote in 2002. Then I jumped to "Suicide of a Superpower", your most recent book. Then I went backwards to 1998 and read "The Great Betrayal". It doesn't matter what order your books are written. Each one ties in with the others brilliantly. Your historical clarity is fantastic. Thank you so much!!
Loved Your Tribute to RMN
I just read your column/tribute to RMN on the centennial of his birth. I proudly cast my first vote in a presidential election for him in 1972 and only wish there were statesmen of his stature still around. Whatever his weaknesses, he was head and shoulders above anyone in the public arena today. His coming from the bottom and rising so high has been an inspiration to me my whole life. Thank you so much for this beautiful speech about a great leader.
Who will take the lead?
Thanks for continuing to bring clarity to those of us who know we're headed in the wrong direction,and need to see ahead. Pat, who can show take the reins of the opposition? I liked Ron Paul, but 11% won't get it done. What do you say?
Death of the West
Thanks, Mr. Buchanan for being a sane spokesman for the rest of us. Years ago, when I first read your book, some thoughts were above my head. As time marches on, I have come to understand exactly what you meant. Thanks for speaking your mind and please don't give up the fight!
Next week when you respond to Eleanor please inform her that the 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with Hunting, it has to do with defending the Constitution of the United States of America from all enemies Foreign and Domestic. I don't have a constitutional right to go hunting, I have a constitutional right to bear Arms, preferable good enough to fight guys with assault rifles. For over 20 million veterans the AR-15 type rifle has and continues to be the Kentucky Rifle of the 21st Century. What they trained with, fought with, and choose to bear. What part of shall not be infringed don't you people understand?
You have always been a voice of reason and total honesty, Mr. Buchanan. I have such respect for your views about racism and about the Israeli lobby. Please do not be silent!
Your view southern strategy
Huge fan. Some say you devised Nixon's southern strategy. If you covered this in one of your books I HAVE read it and forgot. A reference would suffice. How do you respond to those who say the southern strategy was racist? Thx for your time.
More Eloquent Than Cicero and Daniel Webster COMBINED
Dear Mr. Buchanan:
I waited all day to hear you speak at President Nixon's one-hundredth birthday party on January 9, 2013. You were utterly brilliant. Your historical evaluation of Mr. Nixon's career was the best I ever heard, and thank you for reminding everyone of his remarkable tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives, where he already made history as a very young man. The best part of all was your Gatsby-esque summation of his Watergate-obsessed enemies: "They were a rotten crowd," I shouted across the lawn. "You're worth the whole damn bunch put together." Our greatest President made his wisest decision when he hired you. God bless you and Mrs. Buchanan forever, and thank you both for your service to our country.
Just finished reading the Unnecessary War for third time.
Thanks for writing it.
Right Again !
Once again, Pat hits it out of the park. With an eye on history, Mr Buchanan tells it like it is and ought to be.
I still can t believe you\'re not on MSNBC or any other news program.
Pat Buchanan is, bar none, my favorite political theorist, writer, and commentator still active today. His ability to turn even the loftiest of notions into a history lesson is without rival.
I've been following Pat Buchanan since I was a little kid. Literally, I'm 27-years-old and I can remember watching Crossfire with my father, a liberal. Buchanan is the reason I'm a conservative today.
Thank you for saying it like it is!
The only honest reasoning for the second amendment is to assure the people the means to " throw off " their government.
No distinction was made as to the type or quantity of arms, nor to their lethality, nor suitability to the purpose of said arms to
the pursuit of sport or military preparedness. Any other interpretation of the second amendment trivializes it's sober
Some thoughts WRT Hagel's nomination
This whole “he’s not supportive enough of Israel” litmus test is bogus. We are after all talking about someone whose supposed to represent American interests and to define those in terms of Israeli support seems to be very jaded thinking at best. And I’ve read what he said about Israel and wanting to talk to Iran and find no basis by which criticisms from the likes of William Kristol are validated.
Is this to be one of the new criteria going forward, that our Sec Def must hold first and deep loyalties to a foreign country? A foreign country which, along with the cadre of Neocons and the Israel Lobby are overtly trying to push America into another war in the Middle East. Didn’t the stupidity of engaging in the war in Iraq demonstrate the enormous costs and the very few if any benefits derived.
Please don\'t allow a small vocal minority to control the conversation regarding guns. I\'m told there are over 150 million gun owners in this country. Many need guns for personal protection, many are hunters, many enjoy shooting sports,many enjoy collecting.
Why should gun control even be considered? Yes it is unfortunate that children were killed but should 150 million law abiding, VOTING taxpayers be disenfranchised because of three nutjobs a year doing something stupid? There are also many thousands of crimes averted because of legally owned guns.
>Break up the big banks.
>Stigmatize the responsible individuals who use reversed McCarthyism
>Push the flat tax (Russia has some of the lowest debt in the world)
>Push inalienable rights
> And keep it simple stuipid
keep up the fight !
THANKYOU FOR STANDING STRONG AND KEEPING THE FAITH. GOD BLESS YOU,
Dear Mr. Buchanan,
After reading your column on Chuck Hagel today I am sure my suspicions are correct. You are the most intelligent person in the Republican Party. I\'ve given up on it.
We need a third party, a Moderate Party, to get all the sane people in the middle to work together and get things done. Surely you must know some other intelligent people who can get such a party started. Thanks for being a voice of sanity in an increasingly insane world.
