Pat Buchanan's latest polemic—and his first since Obama's election—exposes the risks America faces today and what those dangers will mean for the country's future
Since Obama took office, conservative pundits have been mainstays on the bestseller list. And now, the bestselling author and political legend Pat Buchanan weighs in with a warning against not only the dangers that the country faces under Obama, but the risk of sliding into irrelevancy that the Republican party faces if it chooses to forget its core values.
As he shows in Suicide of a Superpower, liberal policy-making and unhindered globalization have eroded America's economic strength. Changing demographics and declining faith portend a future in which the Republican Party and Christianity will become irrelevant. If things continue unchanged, Buchanan warns, in a few short decades our country will be unrecognizable.
But, there are alternatives. And Buchanan finds signs of hope for conservatives and outlines plans for a very different future that the newly ascendant Republicans and Tea Partiers can use in Congress and nationwide.
A major force in conservative opinion and a longtime political commentator, Buchanan's strident and impassioned argument against the direction in which America is heading will find an eager audience in today's high-pressure political climate.
