(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 wants to run this country by the constitution, not by socialism.

    Ca Native, care to back up your name calling?

    Ron Paul has sparked something big and its somewhat refreshing to see his name in the news. He cant be bought and that scares alot of insiders.

    "Losing ground?" How happy must be those who regard a nonissue as an issue. So what about Wright? So what about Catholics who claim no one can enter heaven unless they're baptised in the Cathlolic faith. So what about preachers who concemn all to ever-lasting hell for no reason at all. Obama is not Reverent Wright anymore than Wright is him. Why are we letting once again religion, a vacuous cuolprit, influence a contest for the Presidency? Why are we buying into nonsense?

    Go Ron! All the best for Australia, where we have no-one on "Left" or "Right" of your calibre and integrity.

    "They even managed to briefly shut down Nevada’s GOP convention earlier this month over a rules change controversy."

    Please check your facts before writing such drivel. Ron Paul supporters won their delegate seats fair and square. *They* didn't "shut down" the convention, the party loyalist shut it down when it became clear that NV was on-track to send a large majority of Paul-supporting delegates to the convention.

    As the dollar continues its collapse and war looms in Iran, "crazy" Ron Paul is looking more and more like the only sane person in Washington.

    Otto: "Ron Paul wants to run this country by the constitution, not by socialism."

    Once you get rid of the labels, you will be amazed how much of socialism you actually like. Probably, more than me.

    Ron Paul is the worst one of all. I don't mind voting for anyone but him.

    Ron Paul has been the lonely voice of obeying our law, the US Constitution, for 3 decades now. He doesn't get tired of telling the truth – which explains his in-defatigable nature. (Heard he bikes & runs 12 miles a day – @ 72 !). He's a man of integrity – a Christian family man faithful for 50 years, with 5 children & 18 grandchildren. He's probably the only man in Congress who could hold his own in an in depth discussion with the Founding Fathers. No wonder the media panned him. To showcase him, is to show the woeful lack of depth in most all the others. I am still hopeful, however that in Providential timing, there are still enough lovers of Truth that they will 'Rally to the Texan !'. A man of integrity can help lead the way – do we have the integrity to follow ?

    This is an excellent book and I highly recommend it to everyone. Oddly enough, this is coming from a Mike Huckabee supporter.

    Ron Paul is one year older than John McCain. Paul was born 10/20/1935. McCain was born 10/29/1936.

    Both candidates' domestic policies are complete disasters that look good on paper. But Paul holds a real upper hand in foreign policy.

    At one debate, Paul and McCain fought about Vietnam. (both served at the time) McCain expressed the views of a complete imperialist lunatic. I'm surprised Paul has gone so quiet lately. McCain is against almost everything Ron Paul stands for.

    Paul had great ideas. It is too bad he was shut out from debates.

    I am looking forward to reading his latest book. I hope everyone picks up a copy. Citizens need to get more involved with the government, our Congress Critters are out of control.

    When Ron Paul raises more money from military members than all of the other candidates COMBINED, citizens need to take notice. Soldiers cannot speak out while they are actively serving but they are speaking loud and clear with their hard earned money!

    Go Paul Go!

    Nothing short of a revolution will make a meaningful difference in the course of this country!

    Anything will be better than what we have now!

    I don't care whatever you stand for: as long as the status quo hates you, you've got my support LOL!

    The discussion following the interview of Michelle Obama and Caroline Kennedy was terrible. Discussing Rev Wright on and on ad nauseum by your reporters. Let go of it.
