(CNN) - Ron Paul’s loyal supporters helped him set campaign fundraising records and capture more delegates during his presidential run than some of his high-profile Republican rivals. They even managed to briefly shut down Nevada’s GOP convention earlier this month over a rules change controversy.
Now they’ve taken his latest book to the top of the Amazon.com bestseller list.
“The Revolution: A Manifesto”, released earlier this month, is currently No. 1 on the Web site’s list of top sellers, besting even Oprah’s latest Book Club selection.
“Despite a media blackout, this septuagenarian physician-turned-congressman sparked a movement that has attracted a legion of young, dedicated, enthusiastic supporters . . . a phenomenon that has amazed veteran political observers and made more than one political rival envious,” boasts the book’s product description, adding: “Candidates across America are already running as ‘Ron Paul Republicans.’”
Ron Paul is the Rev Wright of Conservatives... looney tunes!!!
Alright Dr. Paul! It's about time you get some well-deserved media coverage.
Sen. Obama is in a 5 against 1 battle for the nomination. Once the nomination has been sealed and he's no longer taking on the HRC establishment, her supporters, McCain, and his supporters, plus the GOP things will fall into place. Sen. Obama is fending farely well considering his unequaled circumstances. Oh yeah, and Ron Paul's foreign policy is dead on!!!
The last statement is true. It has already started here at the county level. btw, look up Doug Wead's article, "The Mouse that Roared".
This article reaks of insinuations that only Ron Paul supporters bought his book, voted for him, or set campaign fundraising records. It takes more than a loyal base to get these results.
It's a great book! Finally, we have a Field Guide for Liberty!
Everyone should read it, it's very good! It takes a wrecking ball to establishment ideas!
I'm going to share this with all my friends and family!
Thank you Dr. Paul!
Why is he still in the Republican Party ?
He should start his own party and people with come.
There is a need for a strong third party, he can pull it thru!
Hmm don't know the man or his book very well but am concerned that he may attract all the disenfranchised democratic party voters from Florida, Michigan and Clinton people if Barack Obama is the democratic nominee.
He may do well but I think he's got a long way to go before he makes it to the white house.

Yeah, nothin' says "looney" like pointing out that we don't have the money to police the world, that we should return to constitutional government and protect individual liberty, and that our entitlement programs are going bankrupt. He's CRAZY!
Heavy sarcasm intended.
State Universities teach the same stuff as Multiculturalism! What do you think Obama heard at Harvard?
I like Ron Paul because of his credibility. It is unfortunate that his credibility hurts his campaign.
So his entire campaign was just a ruse to sell books? What a waste!
This relic needs to crawl back to his hole in Texas. His supporters are Libertarians not Republicans and need to move on. Paul is a pain in the derrier to real conservatives. At least Ross Perot made sense. This guy is all over the map.
ron paul would be better than mccain or hillary.at least he's honest.
I'm not a Republican but Obama supporters? You want REAL change? Follow Ron Paul! This guy pretty much wants to eliminate the entire government – now THAT'S change you can really believe in!!!
Read the book you'll love it.
He should write a book on how his supporters get his signs to the hardest of places. One of his sings is on top of the mountain near I-80 near Reno, NV. Dear Ron Paul, please ask your fanatic supporters to get the sign down please!!!
How well would a Obama-Paul ticket do?
If Dr Paul had been given the press that any of his competition had been given, he would be our next president no matter how the democrat's primary turns out.

Just as CA Native is a product of our public schools and fluoridated water.
Ron Paul supporters did not shut down the Nevada convention. Party leadership shut the convention down to avoid electing Paul supporters as delegates to the national convention. The party chair broke the convention's rules by shutting down procedings unilaterally.
I rather have Paul than McCain.
I agree with rasta...since I'm still waiting for the new Al Franken book, I need something to laugh at.
And Ron Paul is absolutely crazy. Just like anyone who thinks that they can dissolve government overnight and leave everything to the free market. The day Ron Paul or any of his ilk get elected President is the day America ceases to exist.
Ron Paul is already my President.
