    I'm about 3/4 the way thru mine. It is excellent reading, every page a history lesson. I had mine autographed by Dr. Paul, last week.

    Last night I read the "Economic Freedom" chapter. In it he destroys the typical arguments against the free market, in a way that I could only insult his words by attempting to paraphrase the man.

    I'll tell you this, this ain't one of them "Aren't They All Idiots" books by the likes of Coulter, Franken, Beck, or Krugman.

    Ron Paul’s loyal supporters helped him set campaign fundraising records and capture more delegates during his presidential run than some of his high-profile Republican rivals. They even managed to briefly shut down Nevada’s GOP convention earlier this month over a rules change controversy.

    Now they’ve taken his latest book to the top of the Amazon.com bestseller list.

    “The Revolution: A Manifesto”, released earlier this month, is currently No. 1 on the Web site’s list of top sellers, besting even Oprah’s latest Book Club selection.

    “Despite a media blackout, this septuagenarian physician-turned-congressman sparked a movement that has attracted a legion of young, dedicated, enthusiastic supporters . . . a phenomenon that has amazed veteran political observers and made more than one political rival envious,” boasts the book’s product description, adding: “Candidates across America are already running as ‘Ron Paul Republicans.’”



    SOURCE CNN...



    It'll take more than a "media blackout" to stop the truth from getting out. It seems to me that it would take more than just his "loyal supporters" to put his book at number one but then I guess the folks at CNN only have so many establishment talking points they can use to contain the good Dr. and the revolution of the awakening mind.

    Ron Paul may very well have been our best choice. Hopefully he'll be around 4 years from now. It would take a miracle for him to be relevant in this year's election. I am going to get a copy of this book myself. Thanks Ken.

    As much I like and agree with Dr. Paul I don't see this revolution as a one man show. I'd like to see Ron Paul go on for a long long time but ultimately it all comes down to what we do now that he's helped to wake many of us up?

    Ron Paul did a great job of bringing the message of freedom and limited constitutional government back to the mainstream and the people. But now it's up to us. We haven't got time to sit and wait for another election or another Ron paul.

    Start with the village dog warden and move up to the mayor. While you're at it write your mayor and ask him why he supports the Earth Charter over the U.S. constitution. Most of them do you know.
