This book told the inside story of an apparently corrupt process of choosing the Republican presidential nominee in 2012. It was very insightful and presented factual events that could have changed the outcome of the Republican nomination as well as the Pesidential election itself. It made me realize that what you read in news publications does not always tell the entire story and how established party rules can be broken in order to promote a pre-established agenda.
The book was very well thought out, researched and presented by the auther. I strongly recommend it to politically minded individuals who seek the truth about how a Presidential nominee is chosen.

A must read political account of the 2012 election process. A masterful treatment of the facts surrounding the election, media and gaps in coverage most would not realize until you read this informative book. The material flows well, has unbelievable WOW points throughout the book and keeps reader wanting to find out more, so much so that the reader may take to YouTube and other venues in search of more. Some events which have not made media play, or other facts which get twisted or not reported at all are presented and analyzed in an easy to read and follow intriguing format.

After I read the first book, I felt empowered. When I listen to the debates or read about the candidates for the 2016 elections, I can say that I fell smarter analyzing the news and the campaigns. Perfect timing for the second edition! Thank you Ms. Smarth for opening my eyes!

This was the election that made me realize that we no longer have elections in this country and we are now third world with the establishment firmly in place and staying there. The cheating, media corruption and unfair coverage, and election fraud was all apparent to anyone out there in the trenches. Thanks for this expose, Deborah.

Deborah K. Smarth has written an interesting chronicle of Dr Ron Paul's campaign for the United States Republican nomination for President in the 2012 election.

For the record, President Barack Obama won re-election easily because the Republican candidate and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney lost out. The Republican Party has to redefine themselves. They are not Lincoln's party anymore.

The American Republican Party has been known to support anti-gay rights and anti-choice for women's reproductive rights. The Republican Party is better known for supporting gun rights, war, and big businesses. Republican Party has a reputation of being the party of haves clinging to their money and possessions. The Republican Party has a harder time finding the right candidate. Mitt Romney was a nice Mormon family guy but he couldn't win voters. The Republicans have to change their rhetoric towards abortion and gay marriage since they've lost those wars.

If Republicans want to win a presidential election in 2016, they should read this book. Ron Paul would have stood a better chance against President Obama on debates. The Republicans need to stop the greed and corruption if they want to win the next election in 2016. They have to realize and make changes about social domestic policies especially health care and welfare programs. The American economy is in the tank because companies have been moved abroad. Our health care system has been hijacked by insurance companies so personal insurance can be costly. Everybody has debts, loans, and mortgages to pay. College graduates can't get jobs to pay their high interest loans.

To say that the Republican Party is out of touch with normal Americans is the truth!
