The Republican presidential hopeful's book rose from 594 to 114 this week on the Web site's list, according to Paul's campaign.

    I couldn't believe it was rated so high. I looked at amazon.com and it's now at #107. If Ron Paul is getting this much interest, he very well could be a force for the other candidates to reckon with, especially considering none of the front running repubs have an overwhelming appeal. Interesting, indeed.

    We the American people are finally starting to open our eyes and ears and our mouths. Your vote this coming primary is the most important one you will ever cast. You owe it to yourself, your family and your country to learn as much as you can about each candidate. The mainstream media has decided their favorites but it is ultimately our decision. I have done my research and I will be voting for Ron Paul.

    Ron Paul is the only TRUE conservative in the field and is the best hope for America over the next 4-8 years. He speaks his mind, he is honest and true, and he least political of all of the politicians.

    Na, dude, that's an ignorant remark. By you posting it just proves that you need to brush up on Presidente Paul. Although I'm starting to wonder if he is the anti christ, I'm still voting for him.

    Check it out. Parts sound a little paranoid, but listen to what he says. I don't know how anyone can listen to this and not vote for him.

    I was not a Ron Paul supporter until I read this book a few months ago. When I read it I suddenly realized just how much lunacy occurs in Congress however, through all the clamor of non-sense there appears to be at least one voice that has the clarity of mind to speak in the most common-sense terms. Ration and Reason can be found in this collection of speeches on the Floor of the House, every American owes it to theirselves and this Country to read this book.

    It is amazing just how focused Ron Paul remains in the midst of the obvious chaos that permeates Congress. We have allowed this government to entangle this Nation into so many treaties and alliances that many are in direct conflict with others, twisted and tied, we have been wrapped in a Gordian Knot by our political leaders as they pander to special interests, power-brokers and corporatists.

    We are in a bind that few Americans seem to realize and this book, while comprehensive, can only touch on a portion of the absolute dire mess we have been driven to by both the Republican and Democratic Party Entrenchment parasites who feed on the wealth of this Nation and People like an over-gorged tick.

    Time for a Revolution!

    It's about time Dr. Paul gets more than a sentence of coverage. Read the book. Listen to his words. Check his voting record. Vote for him.
