Within the Senate, I've attempted to do issues: inform the reality, and do what I stated i'd do. we must always anticipate that from each elected official.
Washington D.C. desperately wishes leaders who aren't afraid to inform the reality.

Cruz's truth-telling behavior hasn't made him well known in Washington. however it has earned him thousands of supporters nationwide.

Minority political protest indicates the significance of an issue, 34 The Political Power of Protest and when political behavior moves along the continuum, the Court focuses on cases that embody the socially relevant topics expressed in protest actions. Justice Brennan (1973) states, “The Court’s calendar mirrors the ever changing concerns of this society with ever more powerful and smothering government. The calendar is therefore the indispensable source for keeping the Court abreast of these concerns” (869).

The disruptive tactics employed in the civil rights movement, in particular, succeeded in pushing Democrats closer to a party platform more favorable to minorities by “exacerbating electoral instabilities which had already been set in motion by economic moderation in the South” (183). Contentious behavior can also be implemented as a deliberate tactical approach to increase a group’s bargaining power (McAdam 1983).

This approach allows for a more general analysis. 2 Both the size of protest and the commitment protestors have for their issues are also components found in Charles Tilly’s WUNC acronym.
