Greatest Political book written in the 21st Century,
This review is from: The Revolution: A Manifesto (Hardcover)
The Revolution: A Manifesto is arguably the greatest political book written in the 21st Century. It is not penned by a politician, but by a statesmen. Congressmen Ron Paul eloquently states his positions and the emphatic reasons behind them. The arguments are concise and to the point. Facts are valued and baseless rhetoric, ever so present in the current day political discourse, is no where to be found.
In this vitally important book, the real causes of America's problems are outlined - from problems of war, terrorism & empire, to the loss of civil liberties, the ever expanding welfare state and the destruction of the American economy at the hands of the Federal Reserve system. However, this short summary really does not do the topics covered justice. All the issues that are prevalent in the media and those that aren't are covered here in detail, in this wonderful book.
The Manifesto is an enlightening read that the dedicated Ron Paul supporter will love and whom the non-supporter will come to realise is the book they've been missing their whole lives.
Now, if you're reading this, yet consider yourself already knowledgeable on why America is failing, and if you subscribe to the notion that it is Capitalism that is the United States problem - then above all else, this book is for you. For years the Communist Manifesto has been read by Libertarians, Republicans and those whom you would consider enemies of the 'left'. Above all else, they read the 'Communist Manifesto' as a means of "know thy enemy" for future arguments sake. Well, this is the reply - the Revolution: A Manifesto. If you would like to know the arguments that will no doubt be used against you, then this book is for you.
The above video is a clip of Ron Paul on CNN, discussing the book with John Roberts. This classic will end up in every worthy school, library, campus and bookshelf across the country. It is the Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" of today. Paine's pamphlet sparked the first American Revolution and Ron Paul's will no doubt further contribute extensively to the Second American rEVOLution!
"Do not give in to evil, but proceed ever more boldly against it."

Just a great review, interview, and book. Everyone should read this book. As a Congressman for 20 years, Ron Paul knows a lot of things that we do not. There is no presidential "fluff propaganda" in this book. Just facts, presented in a cogent and compelling manner. A must read.
