This much is true: you have been lied to. The government is expanding; taxes are increasing; more senseless wars are being planned; inflation is ballooning; our basic freedoms are disappearing.

The Founding Fathers didn’t want any of this. In fact, they said so quite clearly in the Constitution. Unfortunately, that beautiful, ingenious, and revolutionary document is being ignored more and more in Washington. If we are to enjoy peace, freedom, and prosperity once again, we absolutely must return to the principles upon which America was founded. But finally, there is hope.

In The Revolution,Ron Paul exposes the core truths behind everything threatening America, from the realreasons behind the collapse of the dollar and the looming financial crisis, to terrorism and the loss of our precious civil liberties. In this book, Ron Paul provides answers to questions that few even dare to ask.

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.

“Dr. Paul cured my apathy,” said one of Paul’s popular campaign signs. The Revolution may cure yours as well.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Though his policy suggestions can seem extreme, Paul’s book gives new life to old debates.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • The real truth about Liberty. This book takes a wrecking ball to the political establishment. Senator Goldwater would have loved it -- it's The Conscience of a Conservative for the 21st century. Barry M. Goldwater, Jr., former member of Congress
  • “Bob Craig is a convincing, low-key narrator for this sort of thing. His mature, low baritone is articulate, gentle, persuasive, calm, and orderly…No rabble-rousing here, just rational common sense.”

    " Well written would have made a better candidate than Romney. He is a true Republican. However, had a few things to say about Bush. "

    " No one would mistake me for a Ron Paul supporter, but this was an interesting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Guirguis | 1/23/2014

    " It is amazing how simply government can be if we look to the Constitution for guidance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Schermerhorn | 1/23/2014

    " Incredibly short and to the point. I enjoyed Paul's straightforward talk and arguments. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Ralston | 1/19/2014

    " For me I wouldn't rate this as a book I would read again. Perhaps a reference to pull an idea from, yes. For anyone well acquainted with libertarian political philosophy it won't challenge. However, to anyone looking to understand a moderate libertarian political world view or to understand Ron Paul and his followers, this is an excellent choice. I give it such a high rating because it is a great book to pass along to a friend or colleague who isn't familiar with libertarianism. Another side effect of this being a politically motivated book is that, it doesn't really give justice to alternate views or the possibility of error. Of course, I have yet to read a libertarian book that doesn't claim to be the out-right political gospel. Par for the course I suppose. "

    " I picked this book and a few others of Dr. Pauls up prior to his visit to CSU before our February 7th Republican Caucus. I got to meet Dr. Paul during his visit to CSU and he is a very nice guy. Currently I am reading this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen Barry | 12/31/2013

    " A short but dazzling statement of principles and indictment of our age of political apathy. This book is for our generation what Goldwater's "Conscience of a Conservative" was to the last. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ange | 12/16/2013

    " It's nice to read something other than fiction once and a while. Ron Paul was very convincing with his historic, economic, and reasonable arguments. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Wilson | 12/11/2013

    " A truly informative manifesto. This book not only gets to the core of the political issues by dismantling all of the riffraff that hides them, but Ron Paul writes with such clarity and charity that he brings unity to all peoples in America without compromise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 12/1/2013

    " An interesting read on liberty in America. It was tough for me to get through only because it is very dry and political writing, something I always have a hard time reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebekah | 11/18/2013

    " Every Liberty loving American should read this book. "

    " Ron Paul discusses some of the reason why the USA is in the big deep hole it is in. Although well reasoned solutions are given, I'm cynical as to any positive actions being taken by the masses. I succumb to despair. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Smith | 9/21/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michal Hapala | 8/17/2013

    " For all you libertarians our there, this is a definite must read. Ron Paul is one of the few candidates for US president that actually makes sense, though one can feel that he's sometimes struggling with him being a Christian. "

    " Great, great book with lots of great information, both about what's currently happening in our government and why - and what can and should be done about it. So much of it made me mad - it was hard to read about all the crap that's going on. "

    " Boring... same old theories with minimal historical context. Not insulting Ron Paul's intellect. He's just not a compelling writer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Holder | 11/4/2011

    " Short, blunt, and to the point. Our government is screwing us! I like Ron Paul, I just wish he had actually put forth an effort to win the presidency. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike Morrell | 10/4/2011

    " Man - I wish this guy had a chance - VERY informative book, it isn't a stretch to imagine Ron Paul as a contemporary of our founding fathers. Excellent read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathaniel Spinney | 8/25/2011

    " It was definitely interesting. I'd love to talk to more people about his points. Definitely good food for thought. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wing | 6/4/2011

    " Seriously, everybody, I mean EVERYBODY, should read his books (or his political standpoint)! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James | 4/2/2011

    " While I differ with Ron Paul on a number of issues, I do think he's dead right about some very important matters a lot of people simply are not talking about, such as our overextended military, disastrous foreign policy, and crippling debt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robert | 3/24/2011

    " A must-read if you're serious about our current governmental/economic debacle. Clear thinking, simple and powerfully put. "

    " What Paul believes. Spiffing show! "

    " When you read this book, your eyes will be opened, and you will want to hug Ron Paul. The man has lasted as long as he has, and has the respect he does for a reason. That's because he's both highly intelligent, and principled. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 2/3/2011

    " I'd consider myself a Ron Paul fan now. If you are unsatisfied with the performance of our national government, then you should consider reading this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 2/1/2011

    " A common sense description of how the government is over-reaching (far beyond what the constitution allows) in the areas of war making, foreign policy, redistribution programs, health care, monetary manipulation, etc... "
