The True Conservative

By James Matthew Wilson for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC

Writes Pat Buchanan of his work these last ten years:

Our agenda in that decade was—stay out of wars that are not our business, economic patriotism, secure borders, and America first.

Not, as he a observes, a platform to woo the Wall Street Journal, and probably not one likely to inspire a country that has willingly accepted being coddled by a State that is two parts nanny and three parts truncheon.  In a real country, of course, it would seem a most eminent catalogue of sound judgments.
