Suicide of a SuperPower – Will American Survive to 2025?

Pat Buchanan’s new book, Suicide of a Superpower, asks: will America survive to 2025? I bounce off the walls when I think about Buchanan. One minute I cheer him, the next minute I can’t believe he actually said ‘that.’ The Rio Norte Line has short but significant snippets from about 11 chapters of Suicide of a Superpower. They are worth reading. Buchanan gives a sobering look at what America is facing. While all the quotes are worthy of attention, the first from Chapter 1, and another from Chapter 10 stood out:

Read it all at The Rio Norte Line:

Chapter 1:

“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.”

Chapter 10:

“Are vital U.S. interests more imperiled by what happens in Iraq where were have 50,000 troops, or Afghanistan where we have 100,000, or South Korea where we have 28,000 — or by what is happening on our border with Mexico?…What does it profit America if we save Anbar and lose Arizona?”

Now in the throes of the coming election, I try not to think about what is possible that we MIGHT NOT accomplish with Republicans in office. God help us, please. Suicide of a SuperPower is available at Amazon in Kindle edition (pre-order for October 18 release), $14.99. $16.58 for hardcover.

  • “Death of the West” by P.B. is one of the most eye opening books I’ve ever read… outstanding, and all his predictions are coming true one by one

    I only agree with 80% of what he says, have big problems with his protectionism and lack of support for Israel

    That said, one of the most original thinkers out there still, and deeply knowledgable on US history like few others… I welcome his opinion on any issue simply because he’s got a fresh angle on most things.

    And for all they say about him, really a pretty decent guy, good Catholic, happily married, etc
