Give Pat Buchanan credit. He was warning Americans about chasing Muslims around the Middle East years before George Bush's foray into Iraq. He's not a pacifist; he just believes in the old Ronald Reagan saw; we don't want to get involved in foreign wars unless our national security is threatened..and when we do, go large! Go as big as it takes to win that war overwhelmingly.
In Suicide of A Superpower Buchanan warns of the almost inevitable demise of traditional America...and soon! He cites three causes; our foolish involvement in foreign wars and the accompanying poor strategies to win them, the failure to protect our borders, and the quickening death of the Judeo-Christian foundation of high morals and solid work ethics.
If you're looking for a more authoritative source for what I've been writing about for three years you might want to read this book.
For those that aren't familiar with Pat Buchanan, he was twice a Presidential candidate, served on the staff of both Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan, is a regular on PBS's The McLaughlin Group and has the distinction of being fired by MSNBC for not towing the liberal line and his failure to worship Barack Obama.
A prolific writer, Buchanan has penned a dozen books; scholarly treatises on history as well as his take on recent politics. And Pat Buchanan was running for President on platforms that might have sounded bizarre twenty years ago but now are relevant and much discussed. He has warned us about the growing deficit, pissing away our national treasure with our involvement in foreign wars, the growing threat of internationalism and the dangers of misguided trade agreements such as NAFTA.
In Suicide of A Superpower Buchanan makes a good argument that the mongrelism of America as a result of the Mexican invasion is probably our greatest national security concern. He cites facts and figures that clearly show we simply cannot support another 50 million poverty stricken Mexicans and the destruction of our national culture as those 50 million Mexicans failed to adapt and accept the melting pot concept that here to fore has advanced our culture, not demeaned it.
Finally, Buchanan discusses the total collapse of what was once a moral America, an American that believed in the concept of family as the community basic foundation, the willingness to recognize and live by a minimal set of morals. When he talks of the need to encourage Christianity he's not advocating the rigid religious mandates of the extreme right. Instead, he is simply advocating for a restoration of basic decency; a respect for the law, our institutions and the respect of our fellow men.
Buchanan makes a compelling case that, if we don't turn things around quickly, by 2025 America will be something that our parents wouldn't recognize...and a place where few of us will wish to live.
Read and heed!
