The news speaks for itself. Ron Paul has the #1 book on the New York Times bestseller list, for the list published on May 18.

UN-FREAKING-BELIEVABLE.

Congratulations to everyone! And of course to Dr. Paul as well!

No, the May 18 list isn't published yet, so you shouldn't expect to find it online. But it's available to people in the publishing industry, and The Revolution is #1 for May 18. Lew Rockwell mentions it here (http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/archives/020882.html).

"Jack Cafferty is here with the Cafferty File. Jack?"

Jack Cafferty:
"Well Wolf, it's being reported that "The Revolution: A Manifesto" is going to the Number 1 spot on the New York Times Best seller list. It seems that, after all, Ron Paul has some things to say that many Americans want to hear. We caught up with the Congressman in his D.C. office, to see what he had to say about this. Ron Paul Simply had to say "Freedom is Popular". Back to you now Wolf."

Wolf Blitzer:

As Wolf is starring in the Camera, he faints, and a bug THUD can be heard from his body hitting the floor.

When I bought The Revolution I also bought "A Wolf at the Table" by Augusten Burroughs. It looks like this is now a #2 best seller. This is an awesome book by an awesome author and I reccommend picking it up. The author is openly gay though, so it might not be good for everyone here.

This guy was wrote several best sellers, and it is a real accomplishment that Paul's book is above his.

And soon the revolutionbymail.com site will be up and running which will further help push ron pauls book up the ladder each week as well.

I think this book is the best idea he has had so far. I would use the 4 million to get that book in front of as many people as possible.

I think the manifesto will stay in readers minds for years to come. There are just too many reasons to keep buying and shipping the book to people. Anyone with any rationality at all would read it, say wow then say how can I help?

This is the tool to continue the revolution for years to come and we need to treat it as such and really get it OUT THERE.

Do a local book club and read ron pauls books or other constitutional friendly books and surround yourself with others who want to learn about the same stuff.

I think as more and more people read the book they will soon have to say it is a guide to overthrow the government or something and try and ban it because I really do believe that this book will take the nation back with our help.

You cannot rationally dispute the book at all and I would love to have book clubs around the nation where people could get together and discuss the topics that really are important which are LIBERTIES AND RESTORING THE REPUBLIC and not freedom and democracy like most think they want.

No matter how the book got to #1 I hope it stays there for many weeks to come. Keep buying the book and don't forget that EVERYONE YOU KNOW who is having a birthday or even for christmas give them a copy of the revolution and don't forget to put contact information inside the book so they can continue the effort.

I think we should all put something in the first blank page of the book along the lines of.

"Once you are done reading this book please give it to one of your closest friends and discuss it with them once they are done reading it and have them repeat the process"


Something that will keep the books changing hands and going through ALL CIRCLES across the nation and even the world soon enough.

very exciting so yes lets ride the wave and use that information when telling people about the manifesto.

"And by the way it is the #1......"

I see that peaking interest and maybe saying "and its even beating oprahs new book" or whatever else would make a person say "oh really wow".


All we need to do is continue buying them, giving them to others and having them buy more and giving them out as well.

Imagine if everyone bought and mailed a copy to each of their relatives, then on the inside it tells them to go to revolutionbymail.com to help with this effort and then they would ship books to their extended family and it could just keep growing from there.

I bought the book from BN here in town before it was out on the Bestsellers list even though it would have been another 20% off if I'd bought it a few days later. There were only 6 copies available and they were HIDDEN in the back of the store.

NOW it will be RIGHT up front. My friend called every bookstore in the phonebook this week tell them about our ad running this Sunday and telling them to stock up on the book. Hope they all did.

Eat it, bitches.

I was soooo happy when I heard this. I've literally converted about HALF of the people at my work (about 20-30) to Ron Paul's platform. I bought 10 books that are coming in the mail and will be distributing them to them (a majority are looking forward to reading his book).

Others are buying the ook themselves.

I've said it time and time again... there are 10's of millions of Ron Paul supporters out there, perhaps more... they just didn't know it yet.

#1 on NYT bestsellers list PROVES THIS.

IIRC the "bulk order" tag was put in when the "Church" of Scientology bought massive amounts of "Battlefield Earth" to put it in the NYT Bestseller list.

It implies that, while the book is the bestselling book, the sales have been tampered with to imply more readers than actually exist. This is somewhat true; poeple here on RPF talk about buying more than one to boost the count, or to send to delegates/congressman etc...

Don't get me wrong, #1 is great. But it means nothing if new poeple don't read The Revolution.

Thank goodness for RPTX, and the Church of Scientology-
if it weren't for "him" and "Them" (why the Scientologists AND the pessimists of course) , no one would have heard of "bulk order"
nevermind canning or drying.

Upon realizing I didn't actually answer Conza88's question, yes, the list does explain what the dagger means- "A dagger () indicates that some bookstores report receiving bulk orders.

I take that as meaning, its fken awesome - and going viral. More books on the way.. currently empty on shelves, as they've all sold out.

I mean, what do they expect though... 1 million voters for RP. Thats a guarenteed 1 million copies sold. Then like 10+ for people distributing.. Lol.. then like I dunno whatever for the fact that people are going to be interested in the fact its no. 1... so more + sales. Then you have INTERNATIONAL supporters, who want it as well.. LoL.

Mine arrived today.. YEARGHHH! :cool:

RPTXState is right. That dagger was the first thing I noticed. In fact, it's explained on Wikipedia. Anyways, I just want to know how they knew we were making bulk orders. Are they fishing around these forums?
