Summary In this book, pundit Buchanan reveals the perilous path our nation has taken: The era of U.S. global dominance is over. A struggle for hegemony among the United States, China, a resurgent Russia and radical Islam has begun. Torn apart by a culture war, America has begun to break down along class, cultural, ethnic, and racial lines. Free trade is hollowing out U.S. industry, destroying the dollar, and plunging the country into permanent dependency and unpayable debt. One of every six U.S. manufacturing jobs has vanished under Bush. The Third World invasion through Mexico is a grave threat to U.S. survival than anything happening in Afghanistan or Iraq. To save America, Buchanan would start by removing from power the ideologues of both parties, reviewing America's Cold War commitments, and securing our borders. He offers ideas to halt the erosion of our sovereignty and restore our manufacturing preeminence and economic independence.--From publisher description.
