Demographic Suicide: Europe, Pat Buchanan, and Islam

Written by Gary North on July 9, 2016


Except when he offers his views on tariffs, namely, that sales taxes on imports would help America, I like Pat Buchanan’s views. He sees that the West is in a state of moral decline.

Written by Gary North on December 6, 2014


First, he got some bureaucrat to sign an executive action letting illegal aliens remain in the USA. This is not an Executive Order, so Congress cannot pin the tail on Obama.  Smart. Second, he lets La Raza encourage them to register. Smart. Third, the IRS issues Social Security cards to them. Fourth, they get into […]
