The Revolution: A Manifestoby Ron Paul
Synopses & Reviews
This Much Is True: You Have Been Lied To.
The government is expanding. Taxes are increasing. More senseless wars are being planned. Inflation is ballooning. Our basic freedoms are disappearing.
The Founding Fathers didn't want any of this. In fact, they said so quite clearly in the Constitution of the United States of America. Unfortunately, that beautiful, ingenious, and revolutionary document is being ignored more and more in Washington. If we are to enjoy peace, freedom, and prosperity once again, we absolutely must return to the principles upon which America was founded. But finally, there is hope . . .
In THE REVOLUTION, Texas congressman and presidential candidate Ron Paul has exposed the core truths behind everything threatening America, from the real reasons behind the collapse of the dollar and the looming financial crisis, to terrorism and the loss of our precious civil liberties. In this book, Ron Paul provides answers to questions that few even dare to ask.
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. Candidates across America are already running as Ron Paul Republicans.
Dr. Paul cured my apathy, says a popular campaign sign. THE REVOLUTION may cure yours as well.
"The U.S. is cartwheeling into a self-destructive catastrophic calamity, and despite what everyone else says about how to solve it, Paul believes he knows the real truth that can save us. The one-time presidential hopeful's goal, to drastically reduce government and thus give us the true sense of freedom that the Constitution's framers meant, is oversimplified in a country of more than 300 million residents. Certainly, his critique of current politics is sound and well felt, but the plans of this Republican pol, who praises Robert Taft in every other sentence, are anything but revolutionary. Bob Craig provides a deliberate and elderly tone that can be emphatic without being overbearing, which matches well with the text and Paul himself. However, the production contains a surprising amount of background noise that reveals sloppy work on the sound editor's behalf. A Grand Central hardcover."
