Paul No. 1 on Amazon.com

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/04/30/art.paulbook.gi.jpg caption=" Paul's book is 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.’”

    Thank you CNN, even though equal coverage for Ron Paul during the last year would have been wonderful, and FOX is still ignoring him. He has campaigned constantly, drawing huge crowds, with no national media coverage, and look what he has accomplished. I wonder how far the other 3 would have gotten without the daily media coverage.

    Incidently, Ron Paul is still in the race, and going all the way to the National Convention in September. So sit tight.

    I suggest you visit Ron Paul's website and read about what he would like to do. I certainly agree wiht many of his goals, except I feel this country needs to provide health services to every citizen.

    I am surprised no candidate has a goal to reduce the "usury" rates credit car companies can charge. That would probalby do more to jump start the economy than anything else.

    The only canidate that made sense, knew what he was talking about and was willing to tell the truth. It's a shame the media controls the political process, and it's a shame the media is controlled by the government.

    What an admirable politician. I'm hoping to see him speak in Raleigh this weekend. Not sure if I'm going to be able to get in. They said it's free but you have to reserve tickets. Crowds of 1000s come to see him now. It's a shame the corporate media downplayed his support and slandered him so much. The great thing about a revolution is that it doesn't stop and we've just gotten the ball rolling again.

    Speaking of Paul but a different one. WHY hasn`t anyone talked about the law suit that is going on at this moment in Los Angeles. Have all of you forgotten? WELL let me remind you of what`s going on. It`s PAUL VS: CLINTONS. Please read about it and you will see how far Hillary Clinton wants the power. Please read about it. All we see from the press is this reverend Wright, and God knows what else against the Obama campaign, but has anyone talked about the fraud the Clintons did back few years ago. What a shame.

    Is Ann Coulter, going to compare this to nazism like she did with Obama and "dreams from my father"? Probably not. Oh if you havent heard that yet look it up. She's crazy and will do anything to make sure we stay exactly where are as a country. I know this isnt the subject of the article but I cant emphasize enough how much a loon she is and its scary she actually gets air time.

    You know, for some reasons, I like this guy. I think I really like him. He comes off as someone you can actually trust- and I dont always say that about a republican.

    Although I will be voting democrat this year, if he were to have been the rep nominee, chances are that I will be casting my vote for him – seriously

    We have a REAL Conservative Republican in Ron Paul! All one needs to do is look at who the Republicans put forth as their Presidential choice to see how liberal the Republican party has become.
    Juan McCain for Amnesty/President.

    If you want to know more about Ron Paul, go to YouTube and search for Media Caught Lying. This shows the true trends of information seekers online and how our opinions are shaped. Kudos to CNN for this biased article! 😉

    Sorry CA, he is not the Rev Wright of conservatives. He is the James Madison of the 21st century. He may sound looney and get laughed at, but that is what happens when you tell the truth in politics. He is also a prime example of how the media really picks who the mainstream candidates are going to be in an election. Because if you total up the numbers, Paul wasted a few of the popular reps.. So imagine how well he could have done if he had been given the same attention as Fred Thompson or Rudy Guliani.

    Do you think there will be room for Ron Paul in an Obama Administration? I would support that.

    How Internationally "silly" we appear, and ironic this is. That we would be spending $3B/wk to spread democracy, and insure security, yet in our own country the election before lastwas corruptemy "hanging chads" in the President's brother-run state, the past election hinged on votes in Ohio, and currently we can't decide what to do with yainted votes in FL and MI. Aren't we the worlds shinning example of the democratic process.

    Ron Paul should have been the nominee instead of McCain aka McShame, McSame, McBush, etc.

    Ron Paul for the Long Haul! Three cheers for a true American patriot that gets the big picture on what our country needs.

    All those poor uninformed Barak Hissing Obama supporters will have a rude awakening at the convention in Denver. All those "committed" delegates are committed for ONE vote. After that they are free to choose any canadate. If you made it through the eighth grade you should know that. And, that is why Hillary will stick it out all the way to Denver.
    Not that I care. I will be voting for the caucasian male, First, last and always, the party he represents is irrevelent.
