Singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson's Amazon ranking went above 1000% after endorsing Ron Paul, and now two of her albums are on the charts, "Stronger" and "Breakaway" (click here to see the current percentage).

Clarkson jumped on the bandwagon with a growing army of Ron Paul supporters to announce her endorsement for Paul on Dec. 28, but not without some hate followed by some serious r3VOLutionary love.

Here's what she said on Twitter, Facebook and her website, "I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last Republican nomination and no one gave him a chance. If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he's got my vote. Too bad he probably won't."

Kelly's in excellent company as she joins those who have shown their Ron Paul approval, like: Jon Stewart, Clint Eastwood, Jesse Ventura, Drew Carey, Howard Stern, Chuck Norris, Kane, Prodigy's Mobb Deep, Vince Vaughn, John Mayer, Barry Manilow, Tony Pashos, Peyton Hillis, John Mayer---just to name a few.

In this heated GOP race, the problem with putting yourself out there as a star is you can lose a lot of fans, here's what one fan said, "Does anyone want my Kelly Clarkson floor seats in South Fl. Just realized I might no longer be a fan!?"

After receiving many negative posts on her Facebook, the girl who got her start on "American Idol" replied, "I am really sorry if I have offended anyone ... I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights. I like Ron Paul because he believes in less government and letting the people (all of us) make the decisions and mold our country."

After thousands more comments. Clarkson said, "Man my eyes have been opened to so much hate tonight. If y'all ever disagree with something I say please don't feel the need to attack me. I will listen to what you say and any articles or viewpoints you have when you say it with respect."

Clarkson continued, "Being hateful is not a healthy way to get people to see or hear you. I was raised to respect people and their decisions and beliefs and I hope you will grant me the same decency. If you don't agree with me simply unfollow me. It's really that easy. I hope you don't because I would love the chance to hear what you have to say but if you're so blinded by hate you can't seek peace and progress then that is your unfortunate prerogative."

The good news is that Clarkson has now earned many new fans in the army of Ron Paul's freedom-fighter supporters. In fact, one of the most popular pro-Paul sites, the dailypaul.com, started the "music bomb" to support her for taking the risk and stepping out for the champion of The Constitution.

Here's what the dailypaul site says: "Let's return Kelly some love today by getting her latest album back into the top 10.Her Tweet/Facebook post "I love Ron Paul..." is huge, gutsy and came at the perfect time.

Dr. Paul is on the verge of major breakout in support and things like this are just the catalyst the movement needs. She has a huge fan base, and those that agree with many of Dr. Paul's positions but believed his followers were crazy nutjobs, are more apt to feel comfortable supporting him when their respected heroes such as Kelly point out the Emperor is in fact not wearing any clothes.

It takes a lot of guts for any musician to come out in support of a candidate for the simple fact they may offend some fans that might not agree with one's views and possibly lose out in record sales.Let's show Kelly the opposite is also possible, especially when it comes to the Liberty Movement."

Her latest album Stronger is currently #41 in Amazon's Best Sellers list and #15 on iTunes - let's get it back to the top of charts!

Are you willing to step out in support of your candidate of choice? If so, go ahead and leave a comment below.
