By Ron Paul

“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

This much is true: you have been lied to, robbed, and used by your own government—the people you elected into office and the people you should be able to trust. The government is expanding, taxes are increasing, inflation is ballooning, and our basic freedoms are disappearing. Enough is enough. It is time for a revolution.

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 a nation thirsty for change, THE REVOLUTION: A Manifesto (http://www.amazon.com/Revolution-Manifesto-Ron-Paul/dp/0446537519/lewrockwell) (Grand Central Publishing Hardcover; April 30, 2008; $21.00; 0-446-53751-3) is Ron Paul’s call to arms. Moving from topic to topic at a quick pace, Ron Paul cuts through all of the political nonsense that has overwhelmed our country and gets to the small, precious core of what America was founded upon.

Despite a media blackout, presidential candidate Ron Paul sparked a movement whose enthusiasm and dedication have amazed veteran political observers. The 72-year-old physician-turned-congressman has a legion of young, dedicated supporters that would make anyone in politics envious. Candidates across America are already running as “Ron Paul Republicans.”

Why? Because someone in government is finally telling the truth about the economy, terrorism, foreign policy, the war on drugs, the housing bubble, the Federal Reserve, civil liberties, and everything else in between. Instead of swooning before Federal Reserve chairmen, he grills them. With a financial crisis looming, the housing bubble bursting, and the dollar collapsing, Ron Paul has the answers to questions that few even dare to ask.

There is no doubt that Ron Paul has become the enchanter of the disenchanted-- many regard him as the country's only honest politician. Creator of one of the largest grassroots campaigns in history, Paul challenges America to make the tough changes needed to survive. “Dr. Paul cured my apathy,” says a popular campaign sign. THE REVOLUTION (http://www.amazon.com/Revolution-Manifesto-Ron-Paul/dp/0446537519/lewrockwell) may cure yours as well.

About the Author

Ron Paul, a ten-term congressman from Texas, is the leading advocate of freedom in our nation’s capital. He has devoted his political career to the defense of individual liberty, sound money, and a noninterventionist foreign policy. Judge Andrew Napolitano calls him “The Thomas Jefferson of our day.”

After serving as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force in the 1960s, Dr. Paul moved to Texas to begin a civilian medical practice, delivering over four thousand babies in his career as an obstetrician. He served in Congress from 1976 to 1984, and again from 1996 to the present. He and Carol Paul, his wife of fifty-one years, have five children, eighteen grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.

Ron Paul, the New York Post, once wrote, is a politician who “cannot be bought by special interests.”

“There are few people in public life who, through thick and thin, rain or shine, stick to their principles,” added a congressional colleague. “Ron Paul is one of those few.”
