He’s called a right-wing conservative nut, but when it comes to the “big picture”, Hillary could take some lessons from Pat Buchanan.
I’ve read many of his books, and he explains our dire situation that America is in with facts and solid numbers.
I wanted to share this piece he wrote on WMD in my files. It’s called, How the GOP Lost Middle America.
Here’s an excerpt:
To understand why and how the Republican Party lost Middle America, and faces demographic death, we need to go back to Bush I.
The Fortune 500 wanted to close factories in the USA and ship production abroad – where unions did not exist, regulations were light, taxes were low, and wages were a fraction of what they were here in America.
Corporate America was going global and wanted to be rid of its American workforce, the best paid on earth, and replace it with cheap foreign labor.
While manufacturing sought to move production abroad, hotels, motels, bars, restaurants, farms and construction companies that could not move abroad also wanted to replace their expensive American workers.
Thanks to the Republican Party, Corporate America got it all.

Congratulations Pat! Everything you have predicted in your books is coming true. At the helm of our politicians, America is falling….
You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for the decade.
Nobody Gets Email
According to this email, this was said to Obama on CNN by Pat Buchanan, and that’s why he got fired. Frankly, I’ve read enough Pat Buchanan to guess that, even though I can see him saying many of these things, and the text has been lifted…I’m pretty sure it has been rewritten by whomever sent this out.
Still–many whites, myself included, have seen the redistribution of our wealth go to take care of the blacks… and many a white son and daughter have watched while black kids who can hardly even read, get to go to college, while the white kids never get the chance.
Anyway, I thought it had some good points.

This is the reason CNN has dropped Buchanan. It’s like Newt G. Said, “You’re not supposed to bring up uncomfortable Facts.” (verified on Buchanan’s website.
Buchanan to Obama
Barack says we need to have a conversation about race in America. Fair enough. But this time, it has to be a two-way conversation. White America needs to be heard from, not just lectured to. This time, the Silent Majority needs to have its convictions, grievances and demands heard. And among them are these:
First, America has been the best country on earth for black folks. It was here that 600,000 black people, brought from Africa in slave ships, grew into a community of 40 million, were introduced to Christian salvation, and reached the greatest levels of freedom and prosperity blacks have ever known. Jeremiah Wright ought to go down on his knees and thanks God he is an American.
Second, no people anywhere has done more to lift up blacks than white Americans. Untold trillions have been spent since the ’60s on welfare, food stamps, rent supplements, Section 8 housing, Pell grants, student loans, legal services, Medicaid, Earned Income Tax Credits and poverty programs designed to bring the African-American community into the mainstream. Governments, businesses and colleges have engaged in discrimination against white folks…with affirmative action, contract set-asides and quotas…to advance black applicants over white applicants. Churches, foundations, civic groups, schools and individuals all over America have donated their time and money to support soup kitchens, adult education, day care, retirement and nursing homes for blacks. We hear the grievances. Where it the gratitude?
Barack talks about new ‘ladders of opportunity’ for blacks. Let him go to Altoona? And Johnstown, and ask the white kids in Catholic schools how many were visited lately by Ivy League recruiters handing out scholarships for ‘deserving’ white kids? Is white America really responsible for the fact that the crime and incarceration rates for African-Americans are seven times those of white America? Is it really white America’s fault that illegitimacy in the African-American community has hit 70 percent and the black dropout rate from high schools in some cities has reached 50 percent?
Is that the fault of white America or, first and foremost, a failure of the black community itself?
As for racism, its ugliest manifestation is in interracial crime, and especially interracial crimes of violence. Is Barak Obama aware that while white criminals choose black victims 3 percent of the time, black criminals choose white victims 45 percent of the time?
Is Barack aware that black-on-white rapes are 100 times more common than the reverse, that black-on-white robberies were 139 times as common in the first three years of this decade as the reverse?
We have all heard ad nauseam from the Rev. Al about Tawana Brawley, the Duke rape case and Jena. And all turned out to be hoaxes. But about the epidemic of black assaults on white that are real, we hear nothing.
Sorry, Barack, some of us have heard it all before, about 40 years and 40 trillion dollars ago. This needs to be passed around because this is a message everyone needs to hear.
I’m for a better America. I am not a racist. Not violent. Just not silent anymore.
