I just got done reading A Time For Truth by Senator Ted Cruz. Whether you are a fan of Senator Cruz or not, the book is an excellent read. It’s a very good timeline of his life growing up and describes what his family has gone through. I think it was very well written with a mix of stories that were funny, saddening, and always positive.
I won’t spoil any of the stories he tells in his book. Other than he talked about how his father and family endured in Cuba. His experiences with growing up which, humanized him. Very well thought out and written well. A Time for Truth gives you a snap shot of how he became the man he has become today. And how these experiences shaped him and why he believes the way he does. Talking about people he has admiration for and why. How he took away knowledge and admired the Supreme Court Justices.
His experiences with George W. Bushes campaign and the different paths he has taken. The experiences he had during his senatorial campaign. Leading up to the time of his presidential run. He explains his convictions and beliefs well and how they have influenced his love of the Constitution, law, family, and life. And why he pursues to get back and to adhere to the Constitution. Along with the importance to get back to constitutionality. He describes many rights we have lost and under attack and why it is important to follow the rule of law, instead of the rule of man.
He also gives a good account of how D.C. actually works behind the scenes describing how people are expected to go along to get along. Falling in the trap of being influenced and under the power of lobbyists. His depiction of the Washington Cartel is credible and accurate. This is why people are upset and angry at their representatives. Because after they get into Washington they get sucked into the Washington Cartel. Rightly so, because they end up doing what the corrupt leadership has concocted to do on their terms and not the constituents. And it doesn’t matter what side of the aisle they are on.
I walked away from reading A Time for Truth with a greater respect and admiration for a man like Ted Cruz. We need more people in the House and Senate like him who are willing to stand behind their principles to do the right thing for the people instead of furthering their own careers and catering to K St. lobbyists and their cohorts.
A time for Truth is an excellent read for anyone who is into politics.
