Update on Nullification

All Posts 7 Comments

Last I checked, Tom’s new book had reached #37 on Amazon, which is very impressive for not being on the major outlets (thus far). On the one hand I’m disappointed that right-wing places aren’t lapping this up (it might be too radical, and I’m just stating a fact not judging them), but on the other hand it’s amazing that basically with LRC, Twitter, and hey let’s not forget Free Advice, the little blog that could, Tom has managed to get this high.

For comparison, I think the highest I ever saw the Politically Incorrect Guide to Capitalism get was on its launch day, and it peaked at #91 on Amazon. But these things are like the Richter scale; the difference between #91 and #37 is enormous.

    Are you expecting to see shock waves hit the whole country.

    We need to get Tom to speak at as many tea party rallies as possible. We need to distribute Nullify to as many tea partiers in as many places as possible. The organizers are called “Block Captains.”
    Can start with the best organized and most famous tea party org – the St Louis one.
    We can spread Nullify’s message. Its possible

    Does this mean Tom Woods rocks 54 times harder than you do? He must party hard.

    I ordered my copy and can’t wait to get it.

    I’m also looking forward to Woods’ class on the New Deal to begin on Mises Academy.
