Overview

American Empire is at its apex. We are the sole superpower with no potential challenger for a generation. We can reach any point on the globe with our cruise missiles and smart bombs and our culture penetrates every nook and cranny of the global village. Yet we are now the most hated country on earth, buried beneath a mountain of debt and morally bankrupt.

Where the Right Went Wrong chronicles how the Bush administration and Beltway conservatives have abandoned their principles, and how a tiny cabal hijacked U. S. foreign policy, and may have ignited a "war of civilizations" with the Islamic world that will leave America's military mired down in Middle East wars for years to come.

At the same time, these Republicans have sacrificed the American worker on the altar of free trade and discarded the beliefs of Taft, Goldwater and Reagan to become a party of Big Government that sells its soul to the highest bidder.

A damning portrait of the present masters of the GOP, Where the Right Went Wrong calls to task the Bush administration for its abandonment of true conservatism including:

*The neo-conservative cabal-liberal wolves in conservative suits.

*Why the Iraq War has widened and imperiled the War on Terror.

*How current trade policy outsources American sovereignty, independence and industrial power.

"Buchanan is an honest writer who...minces nothing except an occasional opponent."

Editorial Reviews

The Philadelphia Inquirer
"Buchanan is an honest writer who opens his mind and psyche in a way few people can…He minces nothing except an occasional opponent."
From the Publisher
"Warm and self-deprecating, surprisingly witty, honest to a fault about his political views and not quite as knee-jerk a Reagan conservative as I'd been led to expect. Mr. Buchanan has a secret weapon: charm." —Fred Barnes in The New York Times

"Patrick Buchanan is Dennis the Menance with the pen of H. L. Mencken." —The Christian Science Monitor

"Patrick Buchanan is one hell of a wordsmith..." —The Village Voice

    Good conservative political read

    I normally would read nothing by this author because I do not really care for his politics, at least some of his politics in the past.

    This is an interesting book, is very thought provoking if you take the time to really understand what he is saying.

    It does raise many questions in my mind. So, all told it was a read that I am glad to have finished and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

    For those interested in the political scene, it gives some good information from the conservative point of view.

    J. Robert Ewbank, "John Wesley, Natural Man, and the 'Isms'"
