The Prophetic Pat
Golly, he really was right!

Love, hate, or indifferent towards him... history has proven Pat Buchanan right.

On Illegal Immigration ~ We cannot continue to allow illegal immigration. A country that loses control of its borders is not a country. The Constitution of the United States obligates the government to protect the states from foreign invasion. If we can send an army halfway around the world to defend the borders of Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, why can't we defend the borders of the United States? I will build a security fence. We will seal the borders of this country cold. We will stop the illegal immigration in its tracks. (Source: United We Stand America Conference, p.321 Aug 12, 1995) NOTE FROM THE CAVEMAN- Isn't a fence already being built in certain areas?

On The Deployment of Troops to the US-Mexican border ~ I will defend America's border, if necessary with American troops. (Source: Zachary Coile, San Francisco Examiner Oct 27, 2000) NOTE FROM THE CAVEMAN - Gee, troops on the border... what a novel idea.

On Abortion ~ We must reverse Roe vs. Wade, persevere in the fight for life, and restore to citizens the freedom to clean up the cultural pollution poisoning the hearts and minds of our children. The presidency must become a bully pulpit for traditional values, not gays in the military. We will get the US government completely out of the abortion racket. (Source: www.iac.net/~davcam/pat_issu.html) NOTE FROM THE CAVEMAN - States such as South Dakota and Mississippi are already outlawing abortion.

On the 2d Amendment ~ The urban barbarism that has turned our streets into battlegrounds and our classrooms into killing fields will not be stopped by an assault on the Second Amendment right of American gunowners to keep and bear arms. (Source: "Issues: Right to Keep & Bear Arms", Jun. 5, 1999)

On Homosexuality ~ "Homosexuality involves sexual acts most men consider not only immoral, but filthy. The reason public men rarely say aloud what most say privately is they are fearful of being branded 'bigots' by an intolerant liberal orthodoxy that holds, against all evidence and experience, that homosexuality is a normal, healthy lifestyle." (syndicated column, 9/3/89)

On Carol Moseley Braun ~ "How long is this endless groveling before every cry of 'racism' going to continue before the whole country collectively throws up?" (syndicated column, 7/28/93) NOTE FROM THE CAVEMAN - Moseley Braun lost her re-election bid for the US Senate in 1998. Her kindred spirit, Cynthia McKinney recently lost her primary run for re-election to the US House.

On the Department of Education ~ 'a bunch of secular humanists in sandals and beads'. (Source: http://www.iheu.org/node/524)

On NAFTA-GATT ~ The trade deals sold out America's workers, ravaged our manufacturing base & caused disruption in our small towns & farming communities. Our "trading partners" still impose 40% tariffs on US agricultural goods. Our once mighty steel industry now begs relief from the World Trade Organization for problems that were caused by the Clinton-Gore headlong march into the New World Order. The Clinton-Gore trade policy is a betrayal of America's workers, and virtual economic treason against the US. (Source: www.gopatgo2000.com/000-c-tradepolicy.html 5/28/99) NOTE FROM THE CAVEMAN - One word... "outsourcing".

And my personal fav ---

On Bill Clinton ~ “Bill Clinton's foreign policy experience stems mainly from having breakfast at the International House of Pancakes.”

Yah.

Matter of fact, a good deal of that is also available on his video--the speech at the RNConvention of 1986 (?)

Notice that he MUST be a prophet, given the amount of honor he's given in his own country...

Pat Buchanan is just about the only person for whom I would vote for public office. I hope he runs for president again.

Cerebus,
Big ditto on "The Death of the West." Everyone should read it as soon as they finish Bork's "Slouching Toward Gomorrah."

FAB,

If you found The Death of the West of value, and if you havent already done so, you might want to pick up a copy of The Camp of the Saints. It's a work of fiction (by a French authour, Jean Raspail), but it is very thought-provoking.
