The book is not just a campaign book by the candidate from Texas. It’s a collection of thoughts on what must be done to ensure the continuance of the American experiment of self-government and rule-by-law. He explains why the dollar is failing, why the government is growing instead of shrinking, and how we are slowly surrendering our liberties in exchange for a false sense of security.
Lew Rockwell of LewRockwell.com, a libertarian columnist site, posted a fantastic comment on the Amazon product page:
Ron Paul’s legacy–from decades of principled defense of freedom, peace, and sound money–is inculcated in this very important book. Just the right length, it convincingly and eloquently advances the Ron Paul philosophy. It’s a book for beginners and for all of us, no matter how well-read, on liberty, Austrian economics, the Federal Reserve, the free market, the welfare state, and the warfare state. No mere “campaign book,” this is one for the ages. And I especially appreciated the suggested reading list at the end. Ron, thank you for your shining example in congress, for teaching millions through your presidential race, and for being–as this extraordinary book shows–the Tom Paine of the second American revolution. Fellow Ron Paulians, we have only begun.
Ron Paul also posted a message on YouTube regarding the The Revolution: A Manifesto.
I’ve had my copy for approximately a week now, but school’s been taking precedence. I’ll be sure to post my thoughts on it when I finish it.
Update: Bill Huff also contributed to LRC an article called Manifesto Destiny.
