Congressman, Republican Presidential candidate and author Paul (A Foreign Policy of Freedom) says "Let the revolution begin" with this libertarian plea for a return to "the principles of our Founding Fathers: liberty, self-government, the Constitution, and a noninterventionist foreign policy." Specific examples demonstrate how far U.S. law has strayed from this path, particularly over the past century, as well as Paul's firm grasp of history and dedication to meaningful debate: "it is revolutionary to ask whether we need troops in 130 countries... whether the accumulation of more and more power in Washington has been good for us...to ask fundamental questions about privacy, police-state measures, taxation, social policy." Though he can rant, Paul is informative and impassioned, giving readers of any political bent food for thought. With harsh words for both Democrats and Republicans, and especially George W. Bush, Paul's no-nonsense text questions the "imperialist" foreign policy that's led to the war in Iraq ("one of the most ill considered, poorly planned, and... unnecessary military conflicts in American history"), the economic situation and rampant federalism treading on states' rights and identities ("The Founding Fathers did not intend for every American neighborhood to be exactly the same"). Though his policy suggestions can seem extreme, Paul's book gives new life to old debates.

"The real truth about Liberty. This book takes a wrecking ball to the political establishment. Senator Goldwater would have loved it -- it's The Conscience of a Conservative for the 21st century." (Barry M. Goldwater, Jr., former member of Congress)

Imagine my surprise when I went to the mailbox, opened up my package, cracked open my new copy of The Revolution and discovered that IT WAS SIGNED BY DR. RON PAUL!!!!!!!! It turns out the well, read and used copy of the book I ordered was part of a Borders signed book promotion! I can't believe how blessed I am to have received this signed copy of this book, it's just so crazy that I can't help but to shake my head in disbelief!
I am EXTREMELY satisfied with my purchase and this book is now safe with me forever and a shining source of pride in my library.
Ron Paul spells his plan out. He doesn't talk down but talks in a matter of fact manner, explaining topics that have bored most of us until now. He urges us to learn as much as we can so that we may continue his non-violent revolution. (There is a reading list at the end of the book). His book clarifies points made in his speeches and thereby refutes accusations that his ideas are "dangerous". He shares a concern for the poor, even those we have viewed as enemies. His care for American soldiers has been reciprocated by them, so that most election donations from active and retired military go to him. He tells the truth about our economy and warns that if we don't act now, America is a goner, since much of our debt is foreign owned and we borrow $2 billion a day from China and Japan. He would treat drug users as patients, not criminals, reminding us that Prohibition did not work. He would begin to resolve our national debt, by bringing soldiers back from 130 foreign countries. (he wonders why American soldiers are still in Germany after 70 years). He believes that America was attacked on 9/11 because we were occupying the countries of the Middle East not because of religious idealogy.
'The Revolution: A Manifesto' is a tiny but meaty book. Paul has garnered the most unexpected fans from the extreme left to the extreme right. The largest group of them are the young, who will perpetuate his revolution. If only I could have obtained 20 of the books at the price of $3.95, I would be distributing them and then purchasing more.
tax payer need, and the federal reserve, printing more money out of thin air. Brace yourself America!!! After the Global Currency Reset
H.R.2847, July1st 2014...Can you Say Hyperinflation! And get ready for the Renembi to be the next world currency. China is now the worlds
Bush debt, 4-9 trillion Obama debt. 9-17 trillion. Carl Sagan refers to this as a "googolplex" when the number of zero's becomes in comprehensible to understand or control. The American standard of living as you know today is going to change... and not for the good.
Hold on, the ride is going to get rough.
Back in the 90's it was Randy Weaver and Ruby Ridge, then David Koresh and Waco.
Then came Rodney King.
And now Ferguson.
It is sad, America IS a police state.
Back then they called us extreme and paranoid.
I think America is waking up, but as usual it's too late.
We need someone like Ron Paul to be president.
Unfortunately, no matter how likeable Obama is, we have just been rationalizing his actions for the last 6 years, nothing more.
If a black president can't bring justice to the people, who can?
Is he proof of the invisible government behind the Ostensible government that even Teddy Roosevelt talked about?
I don't know, but America has become a police state -- full stop.
No matter what you think of Ron Paul, THIS HERE BOOK IS THE STARTING POINT FOR REBUILDING, REDEFINING, AND GETTING BACK TO THE ROOTS OF AMERICA.
Thank you Ron Paul. For a life of standing up for my liberties and educating me, making me a more informed voter, and a proud American.
