Congratulations to Christopher D. Pille for his review of Ron’s new book on Amazon:
“This book is a must-read.
“I truly believe that historians will one day write of THE REVOLUTION as the book that inspired a national movement to reverse America’s decline.
“It begins with a reality check. Our entitlement programs are insolvent. The dollar is collapsing yet we continue to borrow billions from China every day. National bankruptcy looms while we play empire games abroad, weakening our national defense and stirring up hostility against us. And the political class offers no alternative. Artificial limitations on free debate ensure that the right questions are never asked, let alone answered.
“The book’s core message is that our current path is unsustainable. Either we face the facts and revert gracefully from empire to republic, or financial reality will make itself known in increasingly uncomfortable ways until the system degenerates into chaos.
“It seems impossible to me that anyone could read this book from cover to cover and come to a different conclusion. In concise and captivating prose, Ron Paul takes a rhetorical wrecking ball to the conventional wisdom about terrorism, foreign policy, the economy, healthcare, taxes, trade, the war on drugs, foreign aid, international institutions, and much more. He lambasts the media and political establishments for sustaining the illusion of a fantasy world while liberty and prosperity are silently strangled.
“When the dust clears, all that remains standing is the legacy of our founding fathers. Ron Paul eloquently defends the original intent of the founders and the continued relevance of the Constitution. He draws for us a beautiful picture of America – the way it was meant to be, the way it still can be.
“Forget the campaign-season rhetoric about unity and change. Here, finally, is a message – a manifesto – around which Americans can unite. “In the final analysis,” Ron Paul writes, “the last line of defense in support of freedom and the Constitution consists of the people themselves.”
“It is that time. The system is compromised. The government is not coming to the rescue. The media will only distract you. The future of our Republic will decided by you and me. As a first step, let us rouse our neighbors by spreading this book far and wide.
“Ron Paul has written a masterpiece that deserves to be read by every American. It enlightens and inspires from the first page to its final sentence: Let the revolution begin.”5:15 pm on April 19, 2008 Email Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr.
