The Alienation Of America's Middle Class

We here at are big fans of the writings of Pat Buchanan. There is a relentless essence of common sense and practicality that weaves through all his ideas that make their way on to printed pages. For that reason, like the conservative nerds we are, we jumped at the chance to scan some of the pages made public from his new book, that will be released later this month.

Here are a couple excerpts from his most recent work, Suicide Of A Superpower:

From pages 160 and 161

Why the alienation in Middle America?

In their lifetimes, they have seen their Christian faith purged from schools their taxes paid for and mocked in movies and on TV. They have seen their factories shuttered and jobs outsourced. They have seen trillions of tax dollars go for Great Society programs, but have seen no Great Society, only crime, rising illegitimacy, and rising dropout rates. They watch on cable as illegal aliens walk into their country and are rewarded with free health care and education for their kids, take away jobs from U.S. workers, and carry Mexican flags while marching in American cities to demand U.S. citizenship.

They see Wall Street banks bailed out and read that the bankers used the billions not to lend but to trade, and that the bonuses are back. They see their government shoveling billions out to Fortune 500 companies and banks to rescue the country from a financial crisis created by that same government, and by those same companies and banks. They sense they are losing their country. And they are right.

From page 400

Our intellectual, cultural, and political elites are today engaged in one of the most audacious and ambitious experiments in history. They are trying to transform a Western Christian republic into an egalitarian democracy made up of all tribes, races, creeds, and cultures of planet Earth. They have dethroned our God, purged our cradle of faith from public life, and repudiated the Judeo-Christian moral code by which previous generations sought to live.

They have declared men and women to be basically the same, that all voluntary sexual relations are morally equal, that the traditional family is but one social option, that men can marry men and women can marry women, that race is a social construct invented by bigots bent on repressing others, that all are endowed with the intelligence and ability to succeed in the most competitive society on earth. All religions and all "lifestyles" are equal and all are to be equally respected. These elites will fight to ensure that a mosque is built at Ground Zero with the same ferocity as they will ensure that no Nativity scene ever appears on the National Mall. If there is an inequality of rewards in society, they believe, this is the residue of a reactionary America, the fruit of societal injustice, and it is the moral duty of our modern state to rectify that injustice and mandate equality. Those who reject these truths are benighted and bigoted.

Our secular elites believe in this revolution. The people never did. Middle America detests it. Thus it has had to be imposed from above, by judges, bureaucrats, professors, and those who control the content of our culture. One part of America believes we are headed for a wonderful new age. The silent majority thinks the country has lost its mind.

  1. Middle America has watched as
    535 Members of Congress,
    538 Electors,
    9 Supreme Court Justices,
    dozens of federal judges,
    50 state Secretaries of State,
    50 Governors, and
    50 Attorneys General,
    along with the FBI, the DHS, and the DOJ,
    rejected many thousands of pleas from Middle America demanding enforcement of the U.S. Constitution, Art. ii, § 1, ¶ 5.
    "No person except a natural born Citizen . . . shall be eligible to the Office of President."
    A natural born Citizen is:
    a citizen
    born in the country
    of parents who are citizens,
    according to the U.S. Supreme Court in _Minor v. Happersett_, _The Venus_, and _Shanks v. DuPont_, and never contradicted by any other SCOTUS decision... not even by _Wong Kim Ark_, which ruled on the requirements to be a CITIZEN, not a "natural born Citizen."

    So even if Barack Obama II HAD been born in Hawaii (which he wasn't) - even if he had been born in the Lincoln Bedroom of the White House, witnessed by the nine Supreme Court Justices - he could never be a natural born Citizen. His Kenyan, British Protected Citizen father was NEVER a U.S. citizen. FAIL
