Pat Buchanon :   "Suicide of a Superpower"
...Will America Survive to 2023 reported on Drudge

I have many disagreements with Pat Buchanon, especially as it relates to Israel.  But he has a knack for seeing trends, as he did in, "Death of the West".   Mark Steyn would agree.  What I like about Buchanon's writing is that it is engaging, he was a speech writer for Nixon, and he puts overflowing documentation of support for his contentions.  I like to have ammo against the liberals, who usually have little.

I would agree with both Steyn and Buchanon that we have surpassed being on the precipice of the cliff, we are in free fall and need a radical shift in American policy and values, if we are to survive. 

From the book:

“We have accepted today the existence in perpetuity of a permanent underclass of scores of millions who cannot cope and must be carried by society -- fed, clothed, housed, tutored, medicated at taxpayer’s expense their entire lives. We have a dependent nation the size of Spain in our independent America. We have a new division in our country, those who pay a double or triple fare, and those who ride forever free.”

..."What does it profit America if we save Anbar and lose Arizona?”
