Democrats are done for Pat. With the aid of their Propaganda organizatio ..The American Press. We are in a situation where 60% of the Senators only represent 20% of the citizens. It will not stand. The only question is how much damage they will be able to inflict before they are defeated. I think the devastation will be historic in November.

We should have elected Buchanan when we had the chance. But no, Freepers wanted Dubya.

I used to not like Pat Buchanan. But this piece might be one of the most important in a long time.

The commie basturds don’t care. They have stolen us blind, and have squirreled away more than enough money for the rest of their lives, while we suffer in the crap they put in law.
I am in favor of the Tea Party candidates winning elections, investgating, and imprisoning these people. The last I remember, treason is still a death pentalty issue.
Time to enforce the law.

Tea parties remind me of the spirit of Republicans of 1994-1995, for reform, for the people not Washington power.

Do not let the Tea parties turn into GOP/RNC like the RNC would like.

Now we are talking but that will take Red Stae AG’s. Until Obama is ousted in 2012 Holder will prevent justice from occuring. I hope the new Republican AG is a real Corruption Killer and goes after all of them.

It’s really time for the Pat’s and Newt’s and Dick’s and the old coots to just fade away. Here in Wisconsin, we have a young guy, Paul Ryan. Minnesota has Michele Bachmann. Alaska has Sarah Palin. There are others out there. These old guys just need to retire and live out their lives with their grandkids and great-grand kids.

After the 2012 elections and the ouster of Obama, WE NEED TO PROSECUTE THE DEMOCRAT TRAITORS. they bribe, steal, lie, cheat, and use phony accounting practices to further their agenda.

2013, the mass trials of corruption will clean out the cesspool of Washington DC.

Pat is like so many in this world. He has his good points and bad points. Liberals will glom onto someone if they have a good point that with which they agree. Conservatives, OTOH, will cast out someone who has a bad point with with they don't agree. It's just a fact of life. Without casting dispersions I would point out the difference between the Right and the Left. The biggest risk of the Right is that it lets perfection become the enemy of good. I know it's a lot more complicated than this, but it's the best I can do.

Until we learn to take the good, in spite of the bad, when the good outweighs the bad it's going to be hard to overcome those who take the bad even if it outweighs the good.

The Tea Party Movement is the GOP’s last hope for reform. If that doesn’t work, then it’s time to start a party called The Tea Party.

Here in Wisconsin, we have a young guy, Paul Ryan.

Or, how about another Paul that has been right all along? Ron Paul? Everybody called him a cook, etc. when he was the only one in the primaries talking against run away spending by his colleagues, including President Bush, but he was right all along. Instead, everybody jumped behind Mitt Romney and John McCain and we ended up having our @$$3$ handed to us for good reason.

I didn’t jump behind Mitt or John or Ron (I voted for Palin). I would have voted for Thompson. Fred is a conservative, he lacked passion for the process of running. I’ll never be a Paul supporter for his lack of military support. Sorry, my kids are serving. See my page.

I'm currently serving and just returned from Iraq in August. I'm also proud to serve along with your family members, but your family members can attest to what I'm about to say. At least 99% of us hate our mission in Iraq. One, we believe it to be a worthless mission due to seeing first hand that it had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR MISSION IN AFGHANISTAN. Secondly, due to Bush's rules of engagement, we were sitting ducks. Send us in to win or don't send us in at all. I lost five of my brothers from my unit in one single morning due to Bush's rules of engagement that Obama continued along in ( http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/iraq/2009-04-10-iraq-friday_N.htm ).

I may be slightly off on this, as I'm into the cognac on Christmas night, but I think Buchanan ran once against Bush the senior, and then against Clinton. But not against W.

Got data? Did you see my page? This is the ron paul problem. Get a grip. Ron Paul is Ross Perot in drag. My son in law is doing tour #5. Did you see that???? Tour #5. Don't freaking tell me what 99% of the military thinks, you're a blowhard. I know more people than you've ever cared to know who've served, and I'm suspicious you've ever passed basic training.. Get lost you loser.

I couldn’t agree more. If the Tea Party movement is going to succeed Pat will only drive people away. This being said from someone who attended a Christmas Party in Pat’s living room 10 years ago.

I didn't say 99% of the military, I said my UNIT (that's a batallion, in case you didn't know). And, to attack my opinion and my personal sacrifice (this my first Christmas home; have you ever spent a holiday at war?) is plain retarded, retard. I belong to E Co, 1-67 AR, 2-4 ID out of Fort Carson to be exact; a long way from BCT. You can go to http://www.myspace.com/brandonkerr to see proof of my deployment.....and your contribution to the United States? It's OK to disagree, which I did politely. But to be as you're being is absolutely unAmerican. Merry Christmas anyways; I actually fought for your right to be as you are. Your apology is accepted in advance.

...Hillary stole the show. Without authorization of Congress, she committed the United States to lead a campaign to transfer, beginning in 2020, $100 billion a year "to address climate change needs in developing countries."

The country is BROKE. Almost 17% of citizens are out of work - and this "itch" wants to spend a 100 billion on "global warming"? Is she nuts?

The Tea Party irregulars have it in their power to stop the New World Order crowd cold

Uh Pat, I don't really think that the mainstream conservative should be labeled a 'tea party irregular'! The tea party gatherings are real, live American conservatives who want to protect this great nation from socialism. We are NOT 'irregular', AND we are not from a tea party, we are conservatives.

Merry Christmas to you, and realize, we're being attacked from foreign and DOMESTIC terrorists. If we don't kill them first, they'll kill us. That's their mission. So, you and your Ron Paul pacifist ilk can bask in the glory of the ruination of America. I'll not respond to you again, and yes I'm a degreed engineer.

Except that you certainly owe me an apology. If you want, I'll post your name on my myspace to prove that I'm the military guy in the Iraq pictures you've repeateldy accused of lying about being there. You are spineless and should be ashamed of yourself, Mr. "Degreed Engineer" that's never served even though I just returned from serving in the war you're referencing as if you have any authority in the matter. I politely disagreed to one of your posts and you attacked. You're an @$$ and I don't even want your apology. Anybody that wants to see the history of this dispute can just keep going back to where I politely disagreed and said I was proud to serve with your family members and where you, in turn, attacked my service and character. You are no different than the libs who name call when not able to defend their position.

Reform Party in 2000. Remember the Florida recount and Palm Beach County’s butterfly ballots?

Buchanan received 0.8% of the vote in Palm Beach County (a total of 3,407 votes), significantly outperforming his state-wide vote share of 0.29%...

I wish I knew the answer. I would never vote for Pat, but he has ideas and things to offer that we really need if we are ever going to get started fixing our great country. Same with Newt. And Rudy. And so on and so forth.

Part of me is very hesitant to accept less than the ideal, but another part of me knows deep down inside that we’re never going to have perfection, at least not in this life and this world.

Even God compromises when it’s necessary. So I guess I should take my cue from that source.

Are you calling President Reagan an anti-semite, too? Buchanan was good enough for him.

This is why we can’t roll back the socalist movement, people like you attack every conservative as being a racist.

You and the elite RINOs just join the Democrats in protecting the status quo using that lie.

Pat doesn’t understand. The Dems will never, ever, let a free election happen again. They have power and will do anything — including murder — to keep it. The 2010 election will show fraud, violence, and extortion on a scale so huge that 2008 will, in comparison, look squeeky clean. If “amnesty” is crammed down our throats, the next election will give the Dems 45 states. We are moving towards a Fourth Reich, with conservatives, gun owners, small business people, and the overtly religious headed for the camps.

You have nerve to call me a RINO.My Conservative roots are strong and deep.Pat is a Nutjob that may be a good cabinet member or speech writer but as President would be almost as big a disaster than the jerkwad we have in the Whitehouse now. His dislike for Israel would leave that country wide open for Islamic attacks. You may or may not like Israel, but they are our strongest allies in that part of the world.
And for your information, I voted for Pat in the primaries back in the day and even sported a Buchanan bumpersticker many years after the election.
You may name call all you like, but your support for a caveman like Buchanan would only ensure more Obamas and Clintons. Hope you can live with that.
