Pulling again the curtain at the backroom offers in Congress among Republicans, Democrats, and the lobbyists who preserve them in office-instead of maintaining them accountable-Cruz bargains an within examine what has long gone so very unsuitable in our nation's capital. yet he additionally makes an positive case that by way of reestablishing the rules of our founders, the possibilities for our electorate, and our detailed position on this planet, we will reignite the promise of the US for generations to come.
A Time for fact is sharp, humorous, and honest.
