A time for action : empowering the faithful to reclaim America by Rafael Cruz( )

First-term Texas Senator and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is already a political lightning rod. Since his election to the Senate in 20 2 he has refused to go along with the established way of doing business in Washington. As a result, he has become a voice for millions of Americans frustrated with governmental corruption and gridlock. Telling the truth is a radical act in our nation's capital -- a city dominated by empty promises, meaningless 'show votes, ' and a self-protection racket designed to get politicians re-elected rather than heeding the demands of the American people. Cruz now tells his story as a Cuban immigrant's son who made it to the Ivy League, to the Supreme Court bar, and eventually the U.S. Senate. It's a deeply personal journey that begins with Cruz's father experiencing brutality in a Cuban prison and ends with Cruz's discovery that Washington has neither the courage nor the desire to preserve the freedom and opportunities that gave hope to his father, and millions like him. Pulling back the curtain on the backroom deals between Republicans, Democrats, and the lobbyists who keep them in office instead of keeping them accountable to their constituents, the book offers an inside look at what has gone wrong in our nation's capital. Cruz argues that the only way to bring about real change is to revitalize the Constitutional principles that made our country great

In A Time for Action, Rafael Cruz presents a simple underlying message: For Christians, Jesus Christ should be the foundation of the lives they build, and they should be active in making a difference in the world around them. In practical terms, that means that we should strive for a free society that respects each of God's children; we should embrace the Judeo-Christian values of love, joy, and peace; and we should seek a relationship with the living God. It means that people of faith should actively participate in the political process in order to combat the debilitating and deceptive progressive mantra that there should be a separation of church and state. A Time for Action is the story of one man's quest for refuge from Cuban persecution to realizing the American dream. It is the story of this great nation that was founded on Judeo-Christian principles and why it has fallen from grace. It is a wake-up call to the faithful across the land to step up to the challenge of entering the public arena and taking on the forces at work to destroy the guiding principles that made this country great
