Patrick J. Buchanan - Day Of Reckoning: How Hubris, Ideology, and Greed Are Tearing America Apart
Abridged Audio Book
In his latest New York Times bestseller, Pat Buchanan deals with the greatest crisis facing the nation today: Whether the America we knew and loved will survive many more decades. Buchanan lays out how the United States is being secretly merged with Mexico and embedded in a Global Economy by that threatens the permanent loss of American independence and sovereignty.
While free enterprise is good, the worship of "free trade" is de-industrializing America, killing the middle class, and imperiling U.S. economic independence. While America must stand for freedom, liberty and self-determination, the use of U.S. troops to police the planet or serve as advance guard is imperial folly that will bring down the republic. While America should speak out for human rights, the idea that we get in Russia's face and hand out moral report cards to every nation on earth is moral arrogance. While we have benefited from immigration, the idea we can import limitless numbers of aliens and remain anything like a real country is absurd. To save America the first imperative is to remove from power the ideologues of both parties who have near killed the country.
Buchanan sees America in an existential crisis. In his final chapter, he lays out ideas to stop the suicide of America. He includes a bottom-up review of all America's foreign commitments and entanglements, a plan to secure America's borders, ideas for halting the erosion of our sovereignty and for restoring our manufacturing preeminence and economic independence. Buchanan offers a radical program, but a necessary one, for neither party is addressing the real crisis of the nation -- whether we survive much longer as one people, or disappear from history.
