Pat Buchanan Asks "Is The American Empire Worth The Price?"

“When a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight,” Samuel Johnson observed, “it concentrates his mind wonderfully.”

And the prospect of a future where Kim Jong Un can put a nuclear weapon on a U.S. city is going to cause this nation to reassess the risks and rewards of the American Imperium.

First, some history.

“Why should Americans be first to die in any second Korean war?” this writer asked in 1999 in “A Republic, Not an Empire.

“With twice the population of the North and twenty times its economic power, South Korea … is capable of manning its own defense. American troops on the DMZ should be replaced by South Koreans.”

This was denounced as neo-isolationism.

Empire? I thought we were given a Constitutional Republic? What happened, Pat? Maybe you could report on that?

Oh, no, you're the MSM, I forgot for a moment.

The Constitutional Republic evolved into an Empire.
It will end, like all empires.
The people need to reel in the politicians in DC
