A Chance for a Second American Century?

By Drudge's exclusive report, former Nixon aide, Reagan speechwriter, presidential candidate and columnist Patrick J. Buchanan Buchanan appears to be going for broke with his new blockbuster book, Suicide of a Superpower, set to launch next week.

A peek at the book appeared as Buchanan's Friday column. In that piece, headed "Is the New World Order Unraveling?," Pat Buchanan dissects the impending collapse of the left's  attempt to create a global, social democratic government, one led by unelected elites.  Buchanan traces the origin of this "great 20th century project of transnational elites" to the presidency of Woodrow Wilson and the League of Nations.

That project is now, Pat Buchanan writes, very much in peril.  As evidence, he cites the current mess in Europe with the EU and the euro, the re-emergence of nationalism around the world, the West's religious and demographic meltdown and illegal immigration.

I suspect some AT readers will disagree with many of Buchanan's premises and some of his arguments and conclusions. He's no fan of big government conservatism or country club Republicans. Nor does he think the U.S. should be the global policeman.

Buchanan is also, to put it mildly, a culture warrior.

Yet, Pat Buchanan is always stimulating.  A dose of him increases your desire to live.  He's also an American patriot, a learned man -- and he still punches like the fighter he used to be.  And, by the way (in case you don't already know), the guy writes like an angel, with strong research back-up.

A Buchanan is always packed with facts.

For those who have read Mark Steyn's After America and Lights Out, or earlier books by Christopher Caldwell or Melanie Phillips, it appears, from the Drudge précis, that some of Pat Buchanan's arguments and evidence will be familiar. His take and resulting conclusions, however, are likely to be his own.

But the message which came through to me in Friday's piece was one of hope. It's not too late. Some of the bad news abroad -- such as the shipwreck of the euro and the EU Project (like the shipwreck under President Obama of the Liberal Project in this country and the British Labour Party's Cool Britannia) may actually spell good news for America -- if we can turn ourselves around.

American voters will have a chance to decide whether to do exactly that on November 6, 2012.
