    Sounds like a good read, as it sounds similar to Ron Paul's beliefs.

    "America is coming apart, decomposing, and...the likelihood of her survival as one improbable -- and impossible if America continues on her current course," declares Pat Buchanan. "For we are on a path to national suicide."

    The best-selling author and former presidential candidate is on the eve of launching his new epic book: DAY OF RECKONING: HOW HUBRIS, IDEOLOGY AND GREED ARE TEARING AMERICA APART.

    [The book's release date has been moved up to this week. It ranked #237 on AMAZON's hitparade Monday morning.]

    This time, Buchanan goes all the way:

    "America is in an existential crisis from which the nation may not survive."

    The U.S. Army is breaking and is too small to meet America's global commitments.

    The dollar has sunk to historic lows and is being abandoned by foreign governments.

    U.S. manufacturing is being hollowed out.

    The greatest invasion in history, from the Third World, is swamping the ethno-cultural core of the country, leading to Balkanization and the loss of the Southwest to Mexico.

    The culture is collapsing and the nation is being deconstructed along the lines of race and class.

    A fiscal crisis looms as the unfunded mandates of Social Security and Medicare remain unaddressed.

    All these crises are hitting America at once -- a perfect storm of crises.

    Specifically, Buchanan contends:

    - Pax Americana, the era of U.S. global dominance, is over. A struggle for global hegemony has begun among the United States, China, a resurgent Russia and radical Islam

    - Bush's invasion of Iraq was a product of hubris and of ideology, a secular religion of "democratism," to which Bush was converted in the days following 9/11

    - Torn asunder by a culture war, America has now begun to break down along class, ethnic and racial lines.

    - The greatest threat to U.S. sovereignty and independence is the scheme of a global elite to erase America's borders and merge the USA, Mexico and Canada into a North American Union.

    - Free trade is shipping jobs, factories and technology to China and plunging America into permanent dependency and unpayable debt. One of every six U.S. manufacturing jobs vanished under Bush

    - "Sovereign Wealth Funds," controlled by foreign regimes and stuffed with trillions of dollars from U.S. trade deficits, are buying up strategic corporate assets vital to America's security

    - As U.S. wages are stagnant, corporate CEOs are raking in rising pay and benefits 400 to 500 times that of their workers

    - The Third World invasion through Mexico is a graver threat to our survival as one nation than anything happening in Afghanistan or Iraq

    * European-Americans, 89% of the nation when JFK took the oath, are now 66% and sinking. Before 2050, America is a Third World nation

    - By 2060, America will add 167 million people and 105 million immigrants will be here, triple the 37 million today.

    - Hispanics will be over 100 million in 2050 and concentrated in a Southwest most Mexicans believe belongs to them

    Buchanan's Recommendations:

    - A new foreign-defense policy that closes most of the 1000 bases overseas, reviews all alliances, and brings home U.S. troops

    - A purge of neoconservative ideology and the "Cakewalk" crowd" from national power.

    - To avert a second Cold War, the United States should "get out of Russia's space and get out of Russia's face," and shut down all U.S. bases on the soil of the former Soviet Union

    - To reach a cold peace in the culture war, Buchanan urges a return to federalism and the overthrow of our judicial dictatorship by Congressionally mandated restrictions on the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court.

    - To end the trade deficits and save the dollar, Buchanan urges a Hamiltonian solution: a 20% Border Equity Tax on imports, with the $500 billion raised to be used to end taxation on American producers

    - To prevent America becoming "a tangle of squabbling nationalities" Buchanan urges: No amnesty for the 12-20 million illegal aliens; a border fence from San Diego to Brownsville; Congressional declarations that children born to illegal aliens are not citizens and English is the language of the United States; and a "timeout" on all immigration.

    Pat has been on a number of shows this week promoting this book. Wouldn't be suprised at all if it ends up on the NY Times best seller list. I don't agree with everything Pat says in this book, but his books usually make a sparkling good read and is usually a call to arms that never quite happens. Hopefully it will wake a few more people up.

    Nobody can say Buchanan hasn't tried to sound the alarm.

    The Death of the West
    Where the Right Went Wrong
    State of Emergency
    End of America

    If slothful, materialistic, self-righteous Americans fail to take heed what are we to do?

    The Bell Curve and Human Accomplishment (Charles Murray) should be on everyone's reading list as well. Along with MacDonalds's classic The Culture of Critique.

    America has already become to degenerate. They teach that America was founded for the "free markets" and that to be hard working is to be "anti-American." The Time Machine by H.G. Wells is a great read and we are the Eloi of the book, while Mexico and China are the morlocks, getting ready to eat us away. We need to build a new America. The house that Washington and Jefferson built is too termite filled and I wonder if we should fumigate it or just rebuild it.

    Another really good book is "Which Way Western Man" by William Gayley Simpson.

    Absolutely a great great book, as is the "The InternationalJew" by Henry Ford.

    Pat is writing yet another valuable book. But he doesn't need to preach to us we are the choir and hear him loud and clear.

    He needs to get the bozos voting for American Idol and crying over a millionaire black man who lived a mafioso lifestyle just because he played with a pigskin(Sean Taylor did not deserve to be murdered and I pray for his child to be better than the father. May justice be done to the 4 hoodlums that did this.)to wake up and listen to what is going. Most people don't what the NAU is. Hell given the state of our pubic(yes I said that purposely)school system many don't know what an N A or U is,but they know how to put a condom on a cucumber and on April 19 to have a day of silence for sodomites.

    Ron Paul is more on our side than he is on the side of the wackjob neo/anarchist libertarians that seem to be leading his movement. He doesn't want us in the globalist trade agreements where he and Pat disagree are on tariffs. If RP doesn't win I pray we won't have to lock and load because I don't want the new political movement to be made up of right wing (marxist both libertarians and marxists only care about economics and are amoral and asocial). Let's hope Ron Paul can be a giant step forward and the man to succeed him will be more nationalist.

    I have been a Pat Buchanan fan since the late 1970s. He's the only guy with the guts to take on some of the most pressing issues of the day. He was writing about declining white birth rates back in the 1970s.

    Pat's a great American IMO. His books have sound factual backing and bolster the paleo-Conservative platform. I hope this current book sells like hotcakes and wakes some of the sleeping sheeple before it's too late (and our Republic is no longer).

    Ron Paul will run for presidency as the nominated Republican or more likely run on his own. Pat Buchanan would make a great VP don't you think? He needs to have someone in there who is against Israeli influence to lessen the chance of assasination.

    Pat said in a radio interview he's too old to run for office anymore.
