Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025? | [Patrick J. Buchanan]

Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?

Since Obama took office, conservative pundits have been mainstays on the best-seller list. And now, the best-selling 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 this incisive book, liberal policy-making and unhindered globalization have eroded America’s economic strength.

Publisher's Summary

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 best-seller list. And now, the best-selling 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 this incisive book, 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. 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.

    "A good look at a bad problem"

    Are you ready for some politically incorrect frank talk about the country. First things first, get over the fact that you may consider Buchanan way off in ???right-ville???. I'm a Libertarian but I still know when someone is cutting through the jargon and hitting nerves. It's just that the nerve centers he's targeting happen to involve a mix of warm whimsical longing for a past era all the way to the reality of cold hard demographic statistics. There's a lot of folks out there bashing PB for his apparent ???pro-white??? stance. I don't think they could be farther from reality.

    What PB come close to but has not really gotten to is the even further uncomfortable truths...the former culture of the country has disintegrated long ago. Look closer...we welcomed it. We got convinced that some sort of amalgamation of everyone's thoughts was correct. As if what everyone said had equal value. As if everyone out there was the most important person as along as we ???embraced our differences.???

    There's a lot of that ???embrace??? talk in the diversity cult. It's not only high time but far past the time this subject is questioned. Culture is not a game of addition. When people bring another idea to a culture, that is eventually accepted, it is at the peril of the original concept. It subtracts from the whole because when it comes to cultural identity you can only embrace so much before you are embracing everything (read: nothing). This politically correct march to the cliff face has got us all looking over the edge into a sea of identities we used to be without understanding that if we jump there's nobody down there helping pull you out. Maybe most of us have already jumped while listening to the corporate coaches and group-think educators.

    PB attempts to rattle off some conservative ???solutions??? to try and fix this but he's not going to be able to supply a silver bullet. Those that argue he should be more constructive and offer a slew of solutions might want to step another pace back and realize what he's actually sung here is a dirge...not a revival hymn. I wonder if he's even come to terms with that in his own psyche.

    It's hard to imagine today's drug-addled kids (prescription, mind you) being moved away from a culture of nihilism by today's drug addled ???adults???. The population is all too ready to hoist mediocrity up in parade-fashion while broadcasting their every tedious consumer movement from the megaphone of social network sites. Even I'm guilty as I rail on in an Amazon Reviews string. See you at the bottom.

    "prescient and provacative"
    Would you listen to Suicide of a Superpower again? Why?

    I already have.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    Buchannen painted, and justified, a less than optimistic prediction of america's future based on what has happened in other, similiar countries in the past.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration matched the text.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was worried for the country.


    Any additional comments?

    Buchannens voice is too harsh to listen to for long periods of time. They should have a girl do the readings.

    "A Bleak Future"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a terrific abridged version of Buchanan's original work that hits on almost every point that he writes about, with the exception of the anti-religious bent that he describes in the text. I've listened to it twice and both times felt extremely depressed about the future of America, which obviously was Buchanan's intention. Great narration by the author.

    "Excellent Explanation"

    Excellent explanation of what is happening to our country. The country is being systematically destroyed and the author explains how that is happening. A bonus is that the book is relatively short and read by the author himself.

    "A wacky tale of ignorance"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    The uneducated and equally as ignorant would enjoy this book.


    Has Suicide of a Superpower turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I'll hear out right wing extremists. I got the book for free, but I would never pay for it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Patrick J. Buchanan’s performances?

    If it's free


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Suicide of a Superpower?

    If I were the editor, I'd smack Pat Buchanan in the face for being such a dumbass
