AWESOME...Ron Paul is right on about so many things!! ( )

Ron Paul is awesome. I have yet to find any point that he makes that I disagree with. I was not necessarily surprised by anything in The Revolution, as I was a pretty ardent follower of Dr. Paul's since before he was a presidential contender for the second time (in the 2008 election cycle). Nevertheless, it was refreshing to read all of his views in a single text that is clear and well-written.

Dr. Paul starts out in a fashion that some might consider ironical given that he wrote the book during his bid for the office of POTUS. He basically describes the situation that anyone who has ever seriously investigated a "third-party" candidate already knows about: Namely, that the "choices" offered by the two major parties are effectively not really choices. There are a whole lot of assumptions built into the political race process that Dr. Paul says we are never allowed to question: Like, why do we assume that the government has the right to take any taxes from us, rather than arguing what the appropriate amount of taxation (which would theft if anybody else tried it) should be?

I won't go through the book chapter by chapter, but he basically works his way through various issues that most candidates simply aren't willing to question fundamentally. He tackles foreign policy (why do we still need 64,000 troops in Germany?), trade (why do "free trade" agreements need 3,000 pages of legislation?), economics (what is the purpose of the Fed and do we even need it?), civil liberties (why do some people get so uptight about rights affirmed by the first amendment but willingly give up rights affirmed by other amendments?) and many other topics.

The only qualm I have with the book is an inconsistency in the citation of sources for various data, but considering it is written for a popular audience and not a scholarly one, it might be forgiven. Dr. Paul does give a bibliography at the end for anyone who wants to know more about the various topics he discusses. I am sure to tackle many of the books on the list in the near future (some of them I already own...). ( )

I agree with most of the underlying political philosophy, but I thought the presentation was sub-par and I thought some of the statistics were misleading (like the number about 70% of welfare money goes to administration, which is misconstrued). Overall, I enjoyed the book and thought he made good points. ( )

Whether or not one agrees with Ron Paul's positions in politics, this book is an important read. His arguments are sound and the text is less of a campaign promoting siren song than it is an entreaty to restore common sense to the American people. I found it informative as well as full of hope for a future that would not involve the doomsday predictions so often lauded in the fear mongering news. ( )

Ron Paul's philosophy/politics has always interested me, in that I side somewhat.... SOMEWHAT.... with the libertarian movement. There is a air amount I disagree with, or just know is downright wrong (some of the economics) or implausible for our new current climate.

We will never get back to 1780 and have a government that has nothing to go off of but the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Despite how much Ron Paul WANTS that; that'll never happen. No matter what. So it's not feasible or plausible to really assume it could happen (though Paul does).

I think he has a lot of RIGHT things going for his ideology, despite some of the flaws in it. This should still be a read for many people looking into getting into the various political views ("flavors") that we currently have in our climate. ( )
