Pat Buchanan on Suicide of a Superpower

A good video of Pat Buchanan discussing his book Suicide of a Superpower, about the disintegration of the United States as a superpower and a united nation.

The first 30 minutes is the most interesting. Buchanan wants to stop illegal immigration, and curb the amount and type of legal immigration. He thinks American culture will only be restored initially by a St Paul type leader rather than a politician i.e. mass reconversion to an ethnocentric and traditional Christianity. And he really fires up about the insanity of free trade:
"If you go with NAFTA and GATT and the WTO and take this nation with the highest standard of living in the world, the highest wages, the toughest regulations on manufacturing, and you drop it into a pool where there's about a billion foreign workers who will work for one-tenth of it, you will lose every manufacturing job in the United States...

My view is very simple: if it can be made here, it should be made here."
