Shares how his dad was duped by Castro, when he returns to the island it is a mess so when he returns to the United States he has to tell everyone he asked to support Castro, that he was wrong. He shares background on his grandparents and parents, both sides. Says college debates is more difficult the Senate debate. (REALLY?!)
Clerks at the Supreme Court some insightful insider information. Is involved in the Bush 2000 campaign and recount but is too high on himself and does not get a White House position. Gets married and is the lead lawyer for Texas and presents cases at Supreme Court. Occasionally padded with occasionally insightful stories as well as youthful indiscretions.
Ted Cruz writes brilliantly, the book is quick, witty, while also impressing upon the reader how intelligent Ted Cruz is. I really loved this book. I found I couldn't put it down. I would recommend it to anybody with an interest in politics. Am definitely hoping Cruz gets the nomination for the GOP
Personal anecdote, insight into the political process and a clear vision for the direction that he believes America should take. A fascinating read, I recommend this wherever your own views lie on the political spectrum.
Ted Cruz is everything the political establishment is not. We need more like him in office. We also need more like him graduating from law school. As you will see from reading this book Mr. Cruz is a man of his word. In a sea of corruption, entitlement attitudes, people trying to game the system, and only short term thinking and decision making, Ted Cruz stands out as a , trustworthy, politician, and an American with integrity.
This is a GREAT book on compact discs. Cruz read the introduction and a professional reader read the rest of the book. I already admired Cruz before listening to his book for two principle reasons. First, he was willing to filibuster against the funding of Obamacare despite the media and his own party leaders throwing him under the bus for trumped up reasons. Second, he recently called out Mitch McConnell for the rat he is. He is one of the few politicians who is/was willing to take on the establishment Republicans and Democrats in Washington D.C. and elsewhere. The big plus for me was that I learned a lot more about Cruz by listening to his story, than I would have ever learned by allowing the media to misrepresent the truth about him. For him to tout a personal profession of faith in our Lord Christ Jesus in his book, tells you something about the character of the man. Few politicians are willing to do such a thing in such a clear manner as Cruz did. As a result of having read this book, I believe that Cruz is the best choice for U.S. President in 2016. Cruz has pledged to dismantle all of the illegal executive orders that the Obama administration issued during its term and to move the country back into a position of power and respect with respect to other countries in the world instead of being the world's laughing stock. Over the years, I have found that it is best to judge a man by his deepest convictions and his actions and NOT by his words alone. Ted Cruz appears to be a man who is a committed Christian, a Constitutionalist, a fighter, and a man of generally high integrity. Furthermore, he has a RECORD of fighting for truth, defending the Constitution, and leading in the right direction. No other man or woman who is currently running for the presidency holds all of those distinctions.
Ted Cruz’s book “A Time for Truth” is a very interesting and easy read. Mr. Cruz talks about his family’s struggle in Cuba and how they wanted the best for their future. Mr. Cruz talks about growing up in Texas and how his political life grew with the help of the grassroots voters. Much of the book is Mr. Cruz talking about how the President Carter years and President Obama’s policies and actions are very similar.
He makes many references to President Reagan on how he took America from the downfall of the President Carter years and grew America to a great country. Mr. Cruz also talks about his years in the Texas Senate, dealing with the United States Supreme Court and working to get the best legislation for Texas and America. After reading the book “A Time for Truth” I’ve become a follower of his actions and will watch to see where this 2016 Presidential race goes until voting time.
Will Mr. Cruz use his knowledge and love of the U.S. Constitution as before to help Texas to help America be great again? Will he be strong to stand for truth and work with others as he has before?
“A Time for Truth” is an important read in that we need to remember our past to not make the same mistakes, but to use the same positive actions to repair America from the past years of mistakes.
