FIGHTS: Review - Ron Paul's 'The Revolution: A Manifesto'

Bowie V. Ibarra

Reading 'The Revolution: A Manifesto' by Ron Paul is like taking a standard history class.  At least like a history class in the 1990s.  I can't vouch for how the Bill of Rights and the Constitution are taught these days in school.  The book cover's the basics on returning the US to its roots in the constitution to turn around the out of control government and the folks in charge on both sides of the aisle that are running it into the ground.

The first chapter covers the 'False Choices' of American politics.  Basically, the concept that we are being played by this Republican or Democrat dynamic that only provides two choices.  In reality, both of those choices are the same, because both sides of the aisle are bankrolled by the same corporations sucking the life out of our country.

The second chapter covers foreign policy.  Paul denounces the idea that he is labeled as an 'isolationist', when in fact, he supports commerce with other countries for a better economy.  He also states how perpetuating broad 'wars' are one of the means by which our country's economy is faltering, while military contractors prosper off of the blood of our countrymen.

The third chapter is on the constitution.  The bill of rights and the constitution were standards in my history classes, and I always had questions as to why laws were made and enforced contrary to the founding document.  This chapter covers that, then moves into chapter 4, Economic freedom.

Chapter 5 covers Civil Liberties and Personal Freedom, a concept folks love on all levels but have forgotten how to fight for and defend it.

And the best chapter covers the real reason for our nation's problems:  Money-The Forbidden Issue in American Politics.  It's the issue that some claim got JFK killed, as well as Lincoln.  The Federal Reserve Bank and its kindred IRS system is the bane of our country's existence.  Ron explains how this system is the true demon destroying our country.

There's a reason that an entire segment of American culture got behind Ron during the election process.  It's the same reason mainstream media ignored him, downplayed him, labeled him 'unelectable', all the while throwing its support to an openly obnoxious and out of touch aristocrat that had nothing in common with Paul or the people that supported him.  This book exemplifies the reason that he was vilified by his own party, why that party ended up losing the election, and why Ron was actually the best candidate American's never had the chance to vote for as president of the united states.

If you have the guts to look past the lies of the two-party system that is truly just one party maintaining the status quo, then pick up this book.  It will blow your mind.  You want to know how to fix some of the major problems in the US, this is the book that let's you know where to start.
