He presents a behind-the-scenes examine his extraordinary grassroots crusade for the U.S. Senate. And he unearths the real tale in the back of his twenty-one-hour Senate filibuster, the place he gave the main well-known bedtime studying of eco-friendly Eggs and Ham in history.
Pulling again the curtain at the backroom bargains in Congress among Republicans, Democrats, and the lobbyists who maintain them in office-instead of maintaining them accountable-Cruz deals an within examine what has long gone so very improper in our nation's capital. yet he additionally makes an confident case that by means of reestablishing the foundations of our founders, the possibilities for our electorate, and our targeted position on this planet, we will be able to reignite the promise of the United States for generations to come.
A Time for fact is sharp, humorous, and honest.
What Cruz finds will win him few neighbors in Washington. having said that, that isn't why he went there within the first position

In Chapter 3,1 argue that a similar logic helps us explain how organized interests make tactical decisions about lobbying between elections - about which legislators need to be targeted, which citizens need to be recruited, and what messages need to be conveyed. In a lobbying context, however, the costs, benefits, and probabilities represented in the rational calculus of a participatory decision are not identical for all individuals, all types of participation, or all types of political environments.
Rather, it is incomplete. Individual demographic and attitudinal characteristics are a part of the participation story but not the entire story.
