4.0 out of 5 stars A Revolutionary Manifesto, May 1, 2008
This review is from: The Revolution: A Manifesto (Hardcover)
I was excited to get this book in mail, but a little worried that due to its small size I would not get any new information than what I had gotten listening to Ron Paul debate and give speeches.

I was wrong! The book, though slim, is quite packed with good information. His argument's are more fully developed and criticisms are answered.

Especially worthy of comment are the chapters on economic matters. His fluency in the economic sphere is a breath of fresh air. A politician is finally being candid about government money, and the overarching system that is destroying the dollar.

The chapter on the constitution was also great. There was a small discussion on executive orders that taught me something I did not know before.

The recommended reading section is also welcome for those who want to get into detail.

So, why 4 instead of 5? There was a guy who said that Ron Paul supporters are having all non-5 star reviews deleted, and that we (supporters of Paul) are like cult-members, unquestioning of his policy, etc. So, I decided I could find a fault with the book. I was disappointed there were no endnotes and no index. But sorry, I happen to agree with his policy. It's not blind, cultish, it's simply that I find his arguments compelling.

The Stranger says:
Your review will be deleted in 5 minutes. Just kidding. First, RP supporters don't actually control the internet... nor Amazon. They can "report" reviews to Amazon. I am aware of two reviews that have been deleted thus far (there may be more, I have no idea). One was a coherent anti-Paul policy argument that failed to mention anything about the book (I personally found its deletion questionable, but I suppose there's a difference between policy review and book review).

CORRECTION: I believe someone said they reported this but it was not deleted.

The other was just gibberish (like literally incoherent).

That's a good reason for four stars. Nice review.
