    The Revolution: A Manifesto by Ron Paul... Amazon #1 Best Seller

    [url]http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2008/04/30/paul-no-1-on-amazoncom/[/url]

    [QUOTE](CNN) — 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.’”[/QUOTE]


    The Book is also #7 on the New York Times Best Seller and it officially came out today. From Amazon:

    Ron Paul's legacy--from decades of principled defense of freedom, peace, and sound money--is inculcated in this very important book. Just the right length, it convincingly and eloquently advances the Ron Paul philosophy. It's a book for beginners and for all of us, no matter how well-read, on liberty, Austrian economics, the Federal Reserve, the free market, the welfare state, and the warfare state. No mere "campaign book," this is one for the ages. And I especially appreciated the suggested reading list at the end. Ron, thank you for your shining example in congress, for teaching millions through your presidential race, and for being--as this extraordinary book shows--the Tom Paine of the second American revolution. Fellow Ron Paul Republicans, we have only begun.

    I like Ron Paul.

    Two things, though:

    1) I hope he covers, and sets the record straight, regarding the lazy charges of racism against him for the newsletter that had his name associated with it.

    2) I hope he explains why, if he's so serious about "Revolution," he absolutely refuses to part with the party that spurned him and run as a 3rd party candidate.

    What is there to set strait that he hasn't already said?

    The newsletters are available, as is his extensive answers regarding them. It would seem he's already "set the record strait" with his opinion/position on that topic.

    What am I missing with Ron Paul? I never understood his rather large following. I think that his principles are noble, but they seem more utopian than practical to me. Can someone educate me on this guy?

    He's the only one who understands what causes a currency collapse and the baneful effects it has on a society

    Note the Republican TV debates, whereby every candidate who engaged Paul was left speechless and befuddled, ... you know, the instance just before the audience roared and the network quickly switched to something else.

    I do agree with you in that he's better suited to run as a third party candidate.

    He labeled those rate cuts as taxes and inflation early on also
