How Pat Buchanan Went Wrong

Foreign policy-wise I think Buchanan has failed to understand the true nature of militant Islam. Without getting too deep into theology, militant Islam is primarily concerned with the wickedness which is corrupting the Mulim world and making them weak, where they can't get Allah'a promised victory.

I've always been mystified by his opposing free trade. If there anything that has been seen over the years is that free trade is good economically. I would argue politically as well. I've always felt that Clinton's greatest achievement was passing NAFTA. Having the Democrats as well as the Republicans in favor of free trade was a very good thing. Pandering to unions in the primary season aside.
