Paul No. 1 on Amazon.com

(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.’”

    How realistic can we get!!

    Why has Hillary not been dragged to the press to explain

    1. The actual Bosnia event. We still need the truth from her

    2. The NAFTA deal by Bill, and the gains they are now making from those past deals ($109 million)?

    3. Why she is still married to an ex- president who was impeached in this nation (lots of sexual scandals).

    and the list goes on

    To Ca Native – "looney tunes" describes the current foreign policy, monetary and fiscal policies, etc., that have led us toward serfdom. Everything Ron Paul talks about is right on! Why don't you open your clouded, brainwashed mind and start accepting the principles that will mean more REAL wealth creation, peace and freedom for you and me. Pick up a copy of the book and read it.

    Ron Paul's supporters didn't shut down the Nevada GOP convention. McCain's supporters were running the show and tried to change the rules so their committee could appoint the delegates. The rank-and-file (Paul and Romney people mainly) blocked that. Then when Ron was almost sweeping the election the McCain people ignored Roberts rules, shut down the convention, the microphone, and the lights.

    Ron Paul?

    I thought he suspended his campaign? Didn't his supporters close some Republican convention in Nevada or something this past weekend and didn't let Romney speak?

    What's next, end the war?

    I THINK THAT RON PAUL IS A VERY SMART MAN.
    BUT IS HE RIGHT FOR PRESIDENT?
    HILLARY STANDS OUT IN THE LEADERSHIP ROLE!!!
    SHE WILL CROSS PARTY LINES OR WHATEVER HAS TO BE DONE TO GET TO A SOLUTION!
    THE PRESS HAVE BEEN VERY NASTY TO HER, I GUESS BECAUSE SHE IS A WOMAN OR THEY FEAR HER FOR SOME REASON!
    SHE HAS PROVEN SHE CAN TAKE A PUNCH AND COME RIGHT BACK!!!!
    SHE GETS MY SUPPORT AND VOTE!!!!

    'despite a media blackout,' .....and why was there a media blackout? The media is bought and sold and against any kind of free thought...and I am a Clinton supoorter.

    Dr. Ron Paul's ideas for freedom and prosperity are more real now than ever. Let us stop talking falsely now for the hour is getting late!

    Believe in the power of the Constitution and liberty!

    Go Ron!

    Ron Paul's movement is one soaked in truth, which is not found now of days in politics or humans for that matter. Search him on common video websites and you can see more of what he speaks of.

    This Book is Good!...Should I say Great...I recommend it and I finally found a Candidate, that makes sense!
    Even if you know nothing about him or even dislike him...I must admit, he hits it Dead On! I couldn't stop reading it.

    Ron Paul please endorse Obama and become Sec of State.
    That will KILL the race and the GOP

    Ca Native, Sorry if this sounds like an insult and it is, buy Dr. Paul's best selling book and learn something.

    People show their utter ignorance when they call Ron Paul names.

    Dr. Paul understands the issues today at the core of our problems and how to repair all the government has broken.

    God Bless Ron Paul. The only person running that has the knowledge and integrity to deserve anyone's vote.

    When the collapse of the dollar comes and people are looking to crucify someone to make themselves feel better about having lost everything, I hope everyone will remember the interest (or lack thereof) paid by the various media to the only person who could have stopped it. You know it's happening – wouldn't now be a good time to position yourselves as someone found out late but still tried to help?

    I doubt all of Reverend Wright's comments were untrue. Often the one who is truthful is seen as the loon. Instead of the opposite.

    GO Dr. Paul!!

    Ron Paul is the only true politician to stick to the historical truth of this country and its Constitution. Ron Paul, I support all of your ideas and wish this country would give you a chance.

    Ca Native – I take it you haven't read his book? My son gave it to me to read – I had been a reluctant McCain supporter until two days ago, since Guiliani dropped out. Boy, have my eyes opened.
    You can say that he is looney tunes, but which of the following is looney?
    - Sound money
    - Non-interventionism
    - Conservative values
    - End to income taxes (like we had for 90% of our country's history)
    - Restore the constitution
    - No entry into a North American Union
    - Abolish the Fed and the IRS (oh, they can't do that, it will never happen – with the stroke of a pen it could)

    If you don't think any of this could happen, then you have already given up all your power to our government that used to be for the people, by the people. I'll take a stand – you go watch American Idol.

    Wonder what the neocons are going to do once they lose control of the GOP to real conservatives like Ron Paul's people?

    I think they are trying to infiltrate the Libertarian Party right now.

    Neocons. Full of FAIL.

    I wish Senator McCain will consider him as his V.P.
    However, as I know, Dr. Ron Paul will not accept his V.P. offer.
    If McCain can include some of Dr. Paul's ideas, he will succeed with some truly historic impact.

    If Hillary should be the Dem nominee, McCain will have an easier time in November. Let the Dem and Independents decide.

    Which one of the two is older? Paul or McCain?

    Ron Paul is better than McCain and Hillary Clinton. He doesn't flip flop and he's honest.

    Could Ron Paul "The Loser" through revolution evolution become Ron Paul "The Winner". The wheely dealy greedy war mongers are running
    scared. They have no idea what to do about the "Real Patriot" and his act
    The awakening of the silent majority brings hope to a starving nation.
    God gives us the tools to work with sometimes it just takes us awhile
    to use them

    The only looney tunes are the ones that eat up all the socialist nonsense that the MSM feeds them every day under the guise of news.

    Ron Paul is the only nation-wide politician that is telling us the truth.
