Book Description

3 Dec 2009

The best way to understand Congressman Ron Paul is to take a look at his voting record. He has never voted to raise taxes. He has never voted for an unbalanced budget. He has never voted to raise congressional pay. He has never taken a government-paid junket. He has never voted to increase the power of the executive branch. He voted against the Patriot Act. He voted against regulating the Internet and he voted against the Iraq war. Operating from a unique strain of libertarian republicanism, Ron Paul's beliefs are refreshingly logical, even if you disagree with his principles. He is a Republican in the truest sense of the word, not at all what that word has grown to represent.

This is his call to arms for a nation that needs to change but doesn't know how. Barry Goldwater defined a conservative in the 1960's and with this manifesto, Ron Paul redefines it for the modern day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Manifesto for a world revolution 5 May 2008
As a Republican presidential candidate, Ron Paul is understandably a man concerned primarily with the United States, rather than with England or the rest of Europe. However, the ideas expressed in his book, The Revolution: A Manifesto, can be globally applied given a preliminary understanding of the original American revolution and the later construction of the US constitution. The world is suffering from a surfeit of statism, posits the Good Doctor; we have exploding financial bubbles, endless wars, dissolving currencies, and diminishing civil liberties, racing like the four horsemen of the apocalypse across the entire world. With astonishing clarity, Ron Paul exposes how these inter-linked beasts are related and how they can be tamed via the use of a simple ingredient the United States once used to believe in; freedom. The Republicrats of America must hate him for exposing their carefully spun fallacies behind central banking, foreign policy, fiat currency, and the welfare/warfare state. So, if you want to understand what is going wrong in the world and how it can get fixed then you must read this book, especially if you want to know what America should do to become the beacon of hope it once used to be, rather than the imperial aggressor it has unfortunately become. Personally speaking as a Rothbardian anarcho-capitalist, and a follower of Professor Hans-Hermann Hoppe, I feel that the Good Doctor places a little too much reliance on the ability of any constitution to restrain any government. However, he has written a beautifully crafted piece of work which it is possible to read in one sitting, despite its comprehensive coverage of the entire remit of western world government.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 1 Dec 2009
By Peter
Ron Paul, is a great man, this book can cure you apathy towards US and World Politics, what comes across so eloquently is that he has great integrity and honesty in all his political views. Politics can easily make people switch off, but this book is easily understood and different in that it is quite revolutionary in so much as telling the truth is. Too many politicians have egos to match their bank balances, Ron Paul does not fit into this type. Ron Paul is a seeker of truth and knows it and wants to act on it, when ever given the chance!!

If Ron Paul had a larger backing from the media there is no doubt in my mind that he would be President of the USA today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting solutions for America's difficulties 15 Jun 2008
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ron Paul's argument is a simple one. The US is suffering from economic and diplomatic problems because it is ignoring its Constitution and the traditions of its founding fathers in both domestic and international dealings. The US has abandoned its traditional principles of small government, and is instead spending ever more on larger and more intrusive and bureaucratic government departments and schemes. It has also abandoned its non-interventionist foreign policy in favour of pre-emptive war.

Ron Paul is known as a non-consensus politician. He explains in the book this is not because of a desire to seek attention or be contrary for its own sake. Rather, he charges the Republicans and Democrats as being carbon copies of each other and therefore someone has to break the mould, and that might as well be him.

To solve this Paul suggests two things. Firstly, he argues the foreign policy can be changed quickly, so he proposes an end to the war in Iraq, and a strategic withdrawal of US troops stationed in Cold War bases that are no longer threatened. This would save billions of dollars, and would repair America's diplomatic standing in the world.

He rejects this is isolationism. He has no particular problem with military action overseas, providing the full facts of the threat are debated, and the war is properly declared by Congress, not by Presidential executive order. Indeed, the reader will learn the last time Congress declared war was in 1941. Every war since was by Presidential decree. Paul believes this smacks of dictatorship.

He concedes that the elaborate social security schemes in America cannot suddenly be stopped overnight because too many people depend on them.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an incredible read. 23 Jun 2011
By Caleb Williams VINE VOICE
Being from the UK has its ups and its downs. Its ups include the fact that our political scene isn't as insane and dramatic as the American; its downs include the fact that we in Britain essentially have no rights stemming from a written Constitution so we British are, in a nutshell, f***ed. Just because I'm British, however, doesn't mean that this book didn't speak to me in as much volume as I'm sure it spoke to many Americans. The ideas proposed by Ron Paul are, to be frank (and I'm sure this makes him quite proud), radical to say the least. Before reading this I was actually in favour of military interventionism and an income tax, but Ron Paul's arguments put forward throughout are very well argued. He is a man who, at 75 years of age, has clearly spent many years thinking about and refining his ideas which focus on the core principle of individual freedom. He may represent the Republican party, a party which isn't really a party looked upon very favourably by most British people aware of the American political scene, yet he is a man of his own right and in a lot of ways represents the way the Republican party should be and not what it stands for today.

Throughout the book it would be expected that Paul would be "Republicans do this and that right" "Democrats are bad" etc. But he is actually critical of politicians as a whole and it is clear that the man is not only a Constitutionalist, but a true Libertarian. In this he doesn't seek to programme your mind to think in a particular way, he simply argues in a way so as to allow the reader to think on their own about the issues he is presenting, making it clear time and time again that the arguments put forth are his perspectives. It opens minds and gives you a truly alternative perspective on which to look at certain important issues.
