I disagree with a lot of what he has to say, but there are two places where I strongly agree.
1)That the United States needs to limit how it acts overseas, and needs to use economic power in place of military power.
2) That the foundations of American economic power need to be secured, and that the idea that "free trade" is going to accomplish that is foolish. Buchanan never comes out and says this, but I think that he gets List's distinction between wealth and productive power. And that he undestands that productive power, not wealth is the basis of national power and sovereignty. This distinction is non-existent to neo-liberals, beacuse there's this blind faith that everyone behaves as the market says they should. That state power created the market and sustains it through enforcing its rules is lost on neo-liberals.
Why do you think that Palin is more neo-liberal than Buchanan? I just haven't heard anything that suggests that, but I'm interested if you can point me in the right directon.
And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
