Michael’s New Book, “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” Is Now Available

I spent a great detail of time working on “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America”, and I believe that it is a critical warning message for a generation of Americans that are deeply sleeping right now.  The following is from the description of the book on Amazon.com

For decades, people all over the world have been having supernatural experiences in which God has shown them the future of America. These prophecies are incredibly detailed, they are remarkably consistent, and some of them have already started to come to pass. Unfortunately, most people have absolutely no idea that these prophecies actually exist. Most of them have been buried under the sands of time and have long been forgotten, but now the events that these prophecies foretold are starting to happen right in front of our eyes.

In this book, you will find hundreds of direct quotes from prophetic voices all over the globe. Some of the topics covered include coronavirus and the coming pandemics, economic collapse and famine, civil unrest and martial law, the coming New Madrid earthquake, west coast seismic events, dreams and visions of a massive east coast tsunami, and World War III. The most difficult period of time in all of U.S. history is ahead, and most Americans are completely and utterly unprepared for the “perfect storm” that is now upon us.

America Is Heading For Judgment

(Charisma) Snyder has written a new book called Lost Prophecies of the Future of America, and in it, he reveals how these prophecies have become remarkably consistent and that some have already come to pass. But, he warns, the perfect storm will continue to unfold until our nation repents and comes back to God.

“We’ve been warned that this was coming,” Snyder told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. “The prophetic voices warned us that we were headed into a time of trouble, and they warned about pandemics and economic collapse. (Read More…)


Watch Greg Hunter Interview Michael Snyder About The Cataclysmic Events That Will Soon Hit America


(USA Watchdog) Journalist and book author Michael Snyder predicts, “Judgment is coming for America.”  Snyder lays out his case in his new book called “Lost Prophecies of the Future of America.”  Snyder says, “You look in the Bible and see ancient Israel, and God called on the people of Israel to repent.  You have gone into evil and repent and come back to me.  If you don’t come back to me, bad things are going to happen. . . . In our time, America has gone off into great, great evil.  What does a nation that has killed 60 million children (by abortion) deserve?  That is just one element of where we have gone horribly wrong.  In our day and time, God has sent men and women of God, and in my book . . . I have prophecies from the 1920’s, 1930’s, 1940’s, 1950’s and every decade up to today.  For example, look at West Coast seismic events, or whatever, and you will find dozens of prophecies from men and women of God from all over the world who have all seen the same thing.  What is remarkable is . . . all these people have seen the exact same thing coming, and that is because it is all coming from the same source. . . . So, it is really a summary or a bringing together of these voices . . . warning in advance of many things that are coming.  We were warned in advance a pandemic was coming, and most people don’t even realize it. . . . Another pandemic is coming too.”

The news is not all bad, and Snyder says, “One of the things the prophetic voices have seen is there is going to be masses of people turning to God.  It’s really going to be the greatest hour for the people of God since the Book of Acts.  We are going to set the stage for the return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  We are going to bring in the final harvest. . . . We are going to win souls.  When this stuff starts happening that I talk about in the book, people are going to go into depression and despair.  They are not going to understand why any of this is happening.  Most will not hear the warnings in advance.  They are going to think the world is going crazy and my life is ruined.  They are going to roll up in a ball and cry or commit suicide, but that is the exact opposite response we should be having.  God didn’t warn us about all these things in advance so we would be afraid, but so we wouldn’t be afraid. . . . We need to realize God is going to be moving and doing great things.  We can participate in it, but if we are in a corner crying because we are feeling sorry for ourselves because the world is going crazy, we are going to totally miss out on our purpose for why we are here in this hour. . . .We are going to have the greatest harvest of souls in history.”

Gold and silver rising in price along with inflation also has many prophecies accounted for in Snyder’s book.  Snyder says, “The impetus for this latest surge was the Federal Reserve.  Corona virus comes, and the Fed says the stock market is going down and we’ve got to rescue the financial markets.  So, what they did was flood the financial system with money.  It was like quantitative easing on steroids, and we have never seen anything like it. . . . The stock market has gone to record highs, meanwhile 58 million Americans have filed for unemployment.   These are new claims over the last 23 weeks.  So, the real economy is totally imploding. . . . We are going down the same path as Zimbabwe . . . Gold is not going up.  The dollar is losing value, and it’s going to get a lot worse.”

The most important thing Snyder says, “If you don’t know the Lord Jesus Christ, you are not going to have any hope for the future.  I don’t know how anyone without the Lord Jesus Christ is going to make it through what is coming, and looking to eternity, you are not going to have any hope at all.  Ultimately, the most important thing in any of our lives is our relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.”

“We’ve Been Warned This Was Coming”

(Charisma) Many in the secular world and the secular media point toward all the chaos in 2020—COVID-19, racial unrest, extreme weather phenomena and the major downturn in the economy—as simply coincidence.

End-times expert Michael Snyder says that’s simply not true. Snyder says it’s the “perfect storm” that John Paul Jackson prophesied years ago, and it’s coming to pass through all of these devastating events.

“We’ve been warned that this was coming,” Snyder told Dr. Steve Greene on a recent episode of Greenelines on the Charisma Podcast Network. (Read More…)

Michael Snyder’s Warning To America

If America stays on the path that it is currently on, the end of America is going to come far more rapidly than most people would dare to imagine.  This is a message that we have been sharing on television, on radio and with millions of readers over the years, but most Americans seem quite content to remain in a state of deep sleep.

Unfortunately, the elements of “the perfect storm” are rapidly coming together, and time is running out for this country.  Instead of repenting and turning back to God, just about every form of evil that you can possibly imagine is absolutely exploding in the United States, and we continue to run away from God as fast as we can.

There is only one way that this is going to end, and we have been warned about the things that are coming over and over again.  We are moving into a time when everything that can be shaken will be shaken.  The global financial system is on the precipice of utter disaster, we we witnessing great civil unrest and political shaking all over the world, the drumbeat of war grows louder and louder, weather patterns are going absolutely crazy and seismic activity is on the rise all over the planet.

As global events accelerate, people all over the world are going to be looking for answers, and there will be a great deal of confusion.  We intend to be a beacon of light during “the perfect storm”, and we hope to point millions to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

We wish that there were lots of voices sharing this message all over America, but unfortunately there are relatively few.  Over the past decade, our websites have been viewed well over 100 million times, and the articles have been regularly republished on dozens of other prominent websites where they have been read hundreds of millions more times.

The reach that we have is truly miraculous, and we hear from people all over the world that have been impacted by what we do.

In addition, purchasing Michael’s books and sharing them with others is a great way to help get the truth out.  Here is a brief summary of each of the four books that Michael has published so far…

The Rapture Verdict – The Rapture Verdict is one of the best-selling Bible prophecy books of the last decade.  It has touched countless lives all over the globe, and it is helping people to clearly understand what the Bible has to say about the end times.

Once you read this book, you will never look at the Book of Revelation the same way again.  The worst times in all of human history are coming, and what Michael Snyder has uncovered is this book has dramatic implications for every man, woman and child on the entire planet. The Rapture Verdict is likely to become one of the most controversial Christian books in decades, and it addresses many of the hottest questions being debated today…

-Will Christians have to go through all of the chaos described in the book of Revelation?

-Is the judgment of God coming to America?

-Are we on the verge of entering the Great Tribulation?

-What is “the parousia”, and how does that ancient Greek word completely shake up conventional theories about the rapture?

-Does the rapture come before, after or somewhere in the middle of the Tribulation?

-Why are millions of Christians in the western world going to become extremely angry with their pastors?

-Do the Biblical festivals provide us with a prophetic template for the events surrounding the second coming of Jesus Christ?

-Will this be the generation that witnesses the rise of the Antichrist and the Mark of the Beast?

-Is the organized church in danger of missing out on the greatest move of God the world has ever seen?

Michael Snyder answers those questions along with so many others in an uncompromising manner. The amazing discoveries and ominous warnings that he shares in this book are going to shake the Christian world to the core. The Rapture Verdict is both a chilling warning and a deeply inspiring message of hope. If you want to be on the cutting edge of what God is doing in these last days, then this is one book that you cannot afford to miss. Michael T. Snyder is a former Washington D.C. attorney who now spends his full-time researching, writing, speaking and publishing The Economic Collapse Blog. Michael and his wife Meranda believe that God is going to move greatly even in the midst of all the chaos and darkness that are coming. They are convinced that the greatest move of God and the greatest harvest of souls the world has ever seen will happen between right now and the triumphant return of Jesus Christ to this planet.

The Beginning Of The End – The Beginning of the End is a mystery/thriller set in the United States in the near future. It is a time of unprecedented economic collapse, deep political corruption, accelerating social decay, out of control rioting in the cities and great natural disasters. In the midst of all of this chaos, a former CIA agent, a respected financial reporter and a blogger that takes his prepping to extremes all find themselves dropped into the middle of an ancient conflict between two shadowy international organizations. The three of them are absolutely horrified to discover that one of those shadowy international organizations is planning to hit New York City with the largest terror attack in U.S. history. The goal is to throw the entire country into chaos, but who will get the blame? A series of incredibly shocking twists and turns ultimately culminates in a wild cross country chase that leads up to a surprising ending that most readers will not see coming. A great storm is coming to America, and time is quickly running out. The Beginning of the End is a great book to give to anyone that is still not prepared for what is ahead. It is a wildly entertaining, fast-paced page-turner that is packed with an abundance of twists and turns that many readers will find difficult to put down, but it is also designed to communicate a tremendous amount of truth at the same time. This book is not just intended to entertain people – the explosive truths contained in this novel could literally change the world. If you have always felt a desire to be a part of something bigger than yourself, or if you are just a fan of great apocalyptic fiction, then you definitely should read The Beginning of the End. We are moving into the most unstable time in all of human history, and cataclysmic changes are coming. This is one book that will help you get prepared for what is ahead.

Get Prepared Now – Are you and your family prepared for the greatest economic collapse that America has ever seen? Economic expert Michael Snyder of The Economic Collapse Blog and Barbara Fix, author of Survival: Prepare Before Disaster Strikes, address the whys and the hows of getting prepared for the coming crisis in their new book. Topics include looming economic collapse, drought and increasing weather-related disasters, our extremely vulnerable power grid, civil unrest, and practical steps for storing food and supplies that you will need.

Michael Snyder offers sound economic reasons to prepare while addressing the struggles that many Christians face regarding preparedness. His advice will comfort and uplift the reader, offering peace of mind that preparedness brings during uncertain times. Barbara Fix shares how she was able to provide food storage, medical supplies, and grid-down survival goods for one year for 23 people on a budget. Her story and advice will inspire the reader with unique workarounds that are centered on common-sense principles that have withstood the test of time.

Living A Life That Really Matters – This is Michael’s latest book, and it will help those that read it to be spiritually prepared for the great chaos that is about to be unleashed on this planet.

Deep inside all of us is a yearning to live a life that is filled with meaning and purpose. We all want to feel good about our lives, and we all want something to look forward to when we get out of bed in the morning. As little children we were filled with hopes and dreams for the future, but for so many of us those dreams have long since faded. Instead, many of us drag ourselves through life feeling down, depressed and defeated. In this book Michael Snyder is going to share with you what he has learned about living an overflowing life. We were designed to love, to laugh, to discover, to create and to live lives that are filled with passion. Unfortunately, so many of us have bought into lies that have enabled the enemy to steal all of that from us. No matter how bad things may seem right now, God can take the broken pieces of your life and turn them into a beautiful thing. But you have got to be willing to break your old patterns and start doing things that will produce good fruit in your life. This book will help you to do that.

Of course the most important thing is to get right with God and to know for certain where you will spend eternity.  If you would like to learn more about how to become a Christian, you can do so right here.  Without Jesus, none of us would have any hope at all during the times that are coming, and so I encourage you to make Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior as soon as you can.

Michael Snyder Just Had A Very Alarming Dream About An Absolutely Massive Earthquake

For years, I never told anyone about my dreams.  I think that our society wants us to believe that those that have dreams and visions are a bit nuts, and that discourages a lot of people from sharing them, because we all want to be taken seriously.

But the Scriptures specifically tells us that in the last days there will be an outbreak of prophetic dreams and visions as the Lord pours out His Spirit on all flesh.  This is what we are told in Joel chapter 2

28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:

29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.

30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood, and fire, and pillars of smoke.

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come.

The Lord has been impressing upon me that I need to be sharing the things that He gives me, and so with that in mind I will share with you a very alarming dream that I had this morning.

I was high up on a hillside, although it was so high that I would be tempted to call it a mountainside.  The terrain was very hilly and rocky, and I was with other people inside some sort of structure where we could watch what was happening in the city below.

As I watched, an absolutely enormous earthquake ripped through the houses and buildings in the city.  In my dream, I was very emotionally affected by what I was witnessing.  I understood that there were people down there that I knew personally.  The quake plowed through structures without any resistance at all, and the devastation was immense.

In the dream, I was not given any indication of the location of the earthquake, nor was I given the identities of any of the people that got caught in it.  I just knew that there were people that I cared about right in the middle of it.

I have never seen any footage of a quake as powerful as the one that I saw in my dream.  Perhaps some Hollywood disaster movies come close to what I saw, but none of those movies ever affected me emotionally like this dream did.

We definitely live at a time when our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and other men and women of God have been shown that great seismic disasters are coming to the United States someday.

But I do not know if what I was shown was for the United States.  The fact that people I knew were caught in it would seem to indicate that it might be in the U.S., but of course Meranda and I know people all over the globe.

In any event, I felt that I needed to share this dream with all of you, and I will continue to share the things that I am shown as the Lord leads.

Michael Snyder: “In My Dream I Was Warning President Trump That Great Destruction Is Coming”

All throughout the Scriptures, we see dreams playing a central role.  In fact, I was reading Matthew 2 lately, and I took note that God spoke to Joseph three separate times in a dream in that chapter alone.  And the Scriptures also tell us that dreams will play a critical role in the last days.  In Joel chapter 2, it tells us that just before the return of the Lord Jesus “your old men shall dream dreams”.  So if Jesus is coming back soon, this is something that we should expect to see.

Now I certainly don’t like to think of myself as “old”, but I did receive a dream last night.

Of course not all dreams are significant.  Sometimes dreams don’t have anything to do with reality at all, and it is important to understand that.

But sometimes dreams are an opportunity for God to communicate with us.  When we are sleeping, God can speak to us spirit to spirit, but many believers are not willing to accept the possibility that their dreams could be significant.

From a very early age, there have been times when I have received dreams that were noticeably “different”.  As a child, sometimes I would see myself in a place that I had never seen before.  I would forget about the dream, but then later I would find myself in that precise location, and I would realize that I had been shown it in advance.

At the time, I didn’t understand how these things work, and I was told that it was simply a case of “deja vu”.  So I figured it was just a natural thing that happens to everyone and I dismissed any supernatural explanation.

Even as an adult, I have been very hesitant to share these sorts of things, but in recent months the Lord has been working on my heart and showing me that it is time for me to change.

Last night I had a very startling dream, and I believe that it is one that I am supposed to share with all of you.  It appears that there is quite a bit of symbolism in this dream, and so any thoughts on how this dream should be interpreted would be greatly appreciated.  In this dream I was given the perspective of a member of the Trump family, and I found that to be quite unusual.

Another thing that was unusual was the fact that I was able to speak to Trump.  In my dream I was warning President Trump that great destruction is coming.  I had been told by an angel that judgment was imminent, and there was a tremendous urgency to gather everyone and flee before destruction came.  The following is what I wrote out after I awakened from the dream…


9/1/2019

In my dream I was a member of the Trump family.  I do not know which member of the Trump family I was, but I clearly understood that I was related to President Trump somehow.  Obviously I am not a member of the Trump family in real life, but for the purposes of this dream I was given that unique perspective.  I do not know if I was a member of the nuclear family or a member of the extended family, but Trump was in my dream and he was among the members of the Trump family that was listening to my message.  In my dream I also understood that I did not have as much favor with Trump as other members of the family, and so while it was true that he listened to my message, it was also true that he was not overly receptive to it.

I had been warned in my dream that the city where we were was about to be destroyed and that we needed to flee immediately.  In the dream, I was specifically warned by an angel that the judgment of God was imminent and that I had to gather the others and get out as soon as possible.  I do not know if the city represented a specific U.S. city or the nation as a whole.  I understood that the place where we were would be destroyed “like Ninevah” and “like Sodom and Gomorrah”.

Prior to receiving the warning, my dream had been mostly about interactions between Trump’s family and members of the city.  I don’t remember the things that were said, but I don’t think that they were that important anyway.  What I came away with was an extremely clear impression of how hated we were.  I am sure that there must have been some people out there that loved us, but in the dream I did not experience that.  Instead, I felt overwhelming rejection and hatred to such a degree that it really stunned me.  This overwhelming rejection and hatred were coming from the people of the city that were about to be destroyed.

In one scene during my dream, I looked up at a television and I watched myself deliver the warning message on the Jim Bakker Show.  But I was frustrated because I did not feel that I had delivered it very effectively.  Also, I appeared to be a little bit older than I am now, but I don’t know if that means anything.

As the dream came to a conclusion, I was once again reminded by an angel that time was running out and that everyone needed to leave now.  So I raced to where Trump and his family were, and I pleaded with them to leave.  Some seemed to hesitantly believe me, but others were really dragging their feet.  I was desperately pleading with them and trying to get them to understood the urgency of what the angel had told me, but I could tell that I was not getting through to them like I wanted to.

The dream ended before the group had made a final decision whether to leave or not.  So I do not know if they were able to get out of the city in time.


Please share this dream with as many people as possible, because I think that this dream was very important.

When I was done writing this all out, I noticed that the date on which I received this begins and ends with the same digits, just reversed.

Could that mean something?

I don’t know.

As I stated above, if you have any thoughts about a possible interpretation of this dream I would love to hear them.  Please feel free to share your perspective in the comments below.

I know that a lot of people out there don’t like the idea of prophetic dreams and visions, and I understand that.  But if God is still the same God today that He has always been, then we should expect Him to speak to people through dreams and visions just like He has done all throughout human history.

And as I have been heavily documenting on this website, that is precisely what is happening.

God is still speaking, but are we willing to listen?

May the Lord open all of our eyes so that we can see, and may He open all of our ears so that we can hear…

Michael Snyder: “Last Night I Had A Prophetic Dream About A Future Military Conflict”

Recently, I felt specifically instructed to purchase a notebook and place it by my bed in order to record any dreams or visions I might have at night.  From a very early age I have had unusual dreams, but up until now I have never talked about them publicly very much.  I went out and purchased the notebook, but at first nothing happened.  One week went by, and then another week went by, and I was starting to wonder if the notebook would be put to use any time soon.

But then last night I had a prophetic dream about a future military conflict.  When I awoke I grabbed the notebook and a pen and I started to write down the content of the dream.  This is what I wrote…


 

6-4-2019

In my dream I was part of a military unit.  I do not know for sure that it was an American unit, but that was my impression.  We were in military uniforms and we were heavily armed.  We were traveling through extremely rocky terrain, and we got to a point where there were extremely jagged rocks on both sides of a river.  Asian troops were on the other side of the river, but in my dream their specific nationality was not indicated.

I believe that it was our side that initiated the firing, but the Asian troops started firing back with deadly efficiency.  I could see troops on our side being hit.  Then my view changed and somehow I could see more Asian troops swimming up the river toward us at an extremely impressive speed.  I was stunned at how fast they were swimming, and I had the impression that they were extremely well trained.  They emerged from the water simultaneously, and at that same moment the Asian troops on the other side of the river began to advance.

Our troops were overwhelmed, and those that survived started to retreat.  In the dream I was a very good runner, and I began running away from the battle at high speed.  At one point a couple of us looked back to see if we could regroup at a new position and continue the battle, but it was hopeless.  There were way too many Asian troops.

So I started running again, and I was carrying the jacket of one of my comrades.  He had also escaped, but I had gotten separated from him.  At one point I laid it down in the path, and in my dream I was hoping that he would come along and find it.

In my dream I could run better than the others, and I ultimately survived and made it back to other U.S. forces.  Or at least it was my impression that they were U.S. forces.

I do now know if anyone else from my original unit survived.  That is where the dream ended.

What I Just Saw In The Sky Has Really Shaken Me Up

I just had a very unusual experience.  I went outside to pray this morning, and as I got around to the front of my house I saw something extremely strange in the sky.  There weren’t many clouds at all, and it was a very sunny day, but directly above the mountains there was an extremely intricate cloud formation that was incredibly beautiful.  Do you know how many Christian organizations use the symbol of fire to represent the Holy Spirit?  That is what it looked like.  I have included an example of what I am talking about, but what I saw was much more intricate than this photo.

I stared up at the cloud formation and as I continued walking and praying the thought occurred to me that I should go grab my camera and take a photo of it.  As I was thinking about this, I did another lap around my house, and I could not see the cloud formation on the back side of the house.

But once I got around to the front of my house again, the cloud formation had completely dissipated.  And that was also extremely strange, because it was an extremely calm, sunny day and none of the other clouds in the sky had moved.

I started meditating about what this could mean, and it occurred to me that if the cloud formation had just slowly drifted apart that I could have dismissed what I just experienced as a coincidence.  The fact that it was there for a few moments and then was suddenly gone on a day when the skies were extremely calm otherwise could indicate that it was not a coincidence.

So what do you all think this could mean?

 

Thank You

As this campaign ends, one of the saddest things for me is saying goodbye to the best team of volunteers in the entire state of Idaho. I cannot possibly thank all of you enough for all that you have done, and I wish that I could have produced a better result for you. Over the past year I have made so many new friends that I know that I will have for the rest of my life, and I cannot even begin to describe how much of a blessing that you have been to Meranda and I. It is going to take us some time to recover from this, but eventually we will do just that. And I want you to know that Meranda and I truly love you all. This is definitely a sad day, but all of us have so much to look forward to as we enter the next chapters of our lives.

Several months ago, the numbers told us that this was a very close race and that more than half of all voters were still undecided. We believed that if we simply out-worked and out-hustled the other teams that we would win. Unfortunately, we didn’t anticipate so much PAC money from outside groups coming into the race. The Washington D.C. establishment picked their guy, and they put enormous amounts of money behind him. At one point it was reported that Club for Growth alone spent $639,000 to promote Russ Fulcher, and the final figure will actually be much higher than that. Overall, we were probably outspent close to 10 to 1 by the other side, and it is nearly impossible to overcome that kind of financial disparity. We spent far less for each voter we won than they did, but they simply had far more money.

Over the past two months, there were non-stop television and radio ads promoting Fulcher. On top of that, voters were absolutely deluged with mailers urging them to vote for Russ Fulcher. We tried to keep up, but without any outside financial assistance at all we found ourselves at a tremendous disadvantage.

Even though we were up against long odds, I am so proud of our team for working so hard up until the very last hour. We actually won Boundary County, and we came in second in six other counties. We showed real strength in many of the rural areas, and they will be talking about what we were able to achieve in Idaho political circles for a very long time.

By the end, we had more than 250 volunteers working on this campaign. Over the course of the past year, I had gotten a feel for the other teams, and without a doubt we had the best team by far. I really wanted to win this thing for you guys, and it is going to hurt for a while that I was not able to do that.

I cannot possibly thank all of our volunteers individually in this email, but there are some that I want to single out. If I have left anyone important off this list I apologize in advance – I am not exactly in my best frame of mind right now. Like I said earlier, I love all of you, and I could never thank you enough for what you did to help this campaign.

First of all, I would like to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for an unforgettable experience. I never would have gotten to travel so extensively, make so many new friends or have my faith stretched in so many unique ways if I had not run for this seat. Now that this campaign is over, I need to simply spend some time walking with God. Without Him I wouldn’t even be alive today, and because of Him we will be able to have a great reunion in heaven someday.

In addition, I would also like to thank the following people from the bottom of my heart…

Meranda – God has given me a wife that is far more wonderful than I deserve. Thank you honey for always supporting me on all of my crazy adventures. Our new child is due in July, and that will be far more of a blessing than any political victory ever could be. Whatever happens, every day is a great day because I get to spend it with you.

Christian – I don’t know what I did to deserve the best darn campaign manager in the entire state of Idaho. We never even would have had a campaign without Christian, and everyone agrees that he has an exceedingly bright future ahead. I will never forget our long talks as we traveled up and down the state of Idaho, and I could never thank you enough for your tireless efforts.

The rest of the Fioravantis – Steve, Lynda, Gabe and Mary have all been so fantastic. Most of you don’t even know about the endless hours they spent at night putting together mailers and doing so much of the other work that made our campaign go. They deserved a better result, and I wish that we could have given them one.

Stephanie and Scott – When we originally asked Stephanie to be our state volunteer coordinator, she probably never imagined that she would spend literally hundreds of hours on the campaign. Scott and Stephanie have become very close friends, and they are some of the most incredible people that you could ever hope to meet.

Melissa – It has been quite a journey. Melissa reached out to us after seeing me on Infowars, and she was one of our first key people down in south Idaho. I really wanted to get you a win Melissa, but I couldn’t pull it off. I hope that you stay engaged in politics, and we will definitely work together to help Trump win in 2020.

Susan and Rick – Susan and Rick have been my “secret weapons” from the start. Most of you don’t even know that they spent an hour and a half in the White House recently with Trump’s political team. They fought as hard as they could to get a Trump endorsement for us, and I will be forever grateful for that and for all the other things that you did for us.

Chandler – I can’t say enough good things about Chandler. He walked precinct after precinct down in Ada County all by himself, and he was constantly coming up with more good ideas for the campaign. I wish that we could have rewarded your hard work with a victory, because you definitely deserved it.

Rachelle – Kootenai County was a hard nut to crack for our campaign, and I really appreciate all that you did. Your time in north Idaho has been a challenge, but we are go glad that you are here. May the Lord bless you and your entire family, and may your best days in north Idaho be ahead.

Jonathan and Charity – What more can be said about the Catlin clan? The reason we won those KIDO online polls is because those kids were clicking away like crazy. And I think that your family collectively spent more time sign waving for our campaign than anyone else. Thank you for everything guys.

Pastor Jim – You are a true man of God, and it was a real privilege to get to know you. Even though you live in Ada County, you decided to be our guy in Canyon County because that is where we needed the help. I know that this campaign has helped you to make many new friendships, and I pray that the next chapter of your life will be a very fruitful one.

Kelsey – I will never forget those long late night discussions at Shari’s. You were with us from the very beginning, and you were still there at the very end. Thank you for your strength, your courage and your friendship, and I believe that God has big plans for you in the days ahead.

Gary and Penny – Gary, you inspired countless numbers of people on the Kevin Miller Show the other morning, and you were an endless source of inspiration for me throughout the latter stages of this campaign. You two kept fighting all the way up until the end, and you helped give me the strength to keep going even when all seemed lost.

Tara Barling – The first time that I met you I knew that you were a fireball, and your passion and energy were evident throughout this process. Thank you for being a fighter, and thank you for getting so many others involved in the campaign. I just wish that we could have pulled out a victory for you.

Ernest and Linda Walker – We were brought together by the Jim Bakker Show, but I never imagined how instrumental you two would be throughout the campaign. Originally we had other key people in Gem County, but in the end you two were the real gems. Thank you.

Garry and Kristy Young – I actually believed that we would win Owyhee County thanks to you two, but that didn’t end up happening. But nobody can ever question your work ethic, and I will always remember the days that Christian and I got to spend at your place. You two are special, and I thank you for everything.

Tom Munds – There is nobody quite like Tom Munds. Christian and I really wanted to win this thing for you, because I know what it would have meant. Your support and friendship mean the world to me, and I wish that we could have gotten a better result for you.

Sam Harrich – We came in second in Latah County, and your hard work definitely helped make that possible. You definitely have a bright future ahead of you, so study hard. And if you ever need a reference, please feel free to use me as one.

Tom Eier – Your love for Lewiston is contagious. After spending an afternoon with you, I had an entirely different perspective on the city, and I just wish that I could have gotten to spend more time with you. You are one of the favorite people that I met along the way, and I thank you for all the help that you gave us.

Jennifer McClelland – That extremely windy day that we spent banging in signs out in Fruitland with your father will be etched in my memory forever. You have been such a blessing, and I really wish that we could have gotten a victory for you. But I know that you have a very bright future ahead. Shalom my friend!

Mark Gundert – Over the past year you have encouraged us on an almost daily basis on Facebook. Thank you for your support, prayers and friendship. I know that you really wanted us to win, and I am sorry that we could not get that done.

Julia Long – I will always, always, always remember the praying women of Genessee. When we arrived in town that day, it was after one of the lowest moments of our campaign, and seeing you all praying outside next to one of our campaign signs was one of those “God moments” that I will never forget. All of you are so special, and all of you will always have such a special place in my heart.

Pro-Life – I never imagined that this process would result in us becoming such good friends, and I am so glad that I have gotten to know you. Now you are moving on the general election as the Constitution Party candidate, and I wish you the very best as you take on Russ Fulcher. But be careful – he is a sneaky one.

There are so many others that sacrificed so much to make our campaign possible, and I will never forget any of you.

As for me, I will be going back to my writing, and through my writing I am able to touch lives literally all over the planet.

So I will remain involved in trying to change things for the better, and I am definitely a better person as a result of getting to know all of you.

They say that life is like a coin – you can spend it any way that you want, but you can only spend it once.

Spend your life for something that really matters.

I love you all.

In Liberty,

Michael Snyder

Vote Pro-Trump On May 15th – Election Day Is Tuesday, And President Trump Needs Everyone To Go Vote For Michael Snyder For Congress

If you live in Idaho’s first congressional district, President Trump desperately needs your support. Tuesday is voting day, and it is being projected that only about 20 percent of all registered voters will actually go out and vote. So that means if Trump voters turn out in very large numbers they can decide who will win this election. If you do not know where your voting location is yet, you can find out right here. And please contact every single Trump supporter that you know and encourage them to go vote. President Trump needs allies in Congress, and if I don’t win a horrible RINO that is surrounded by “never Trumpers” and that is being funded by a PAC that absolutely hates Donald Trump is going to win. That would be an absolute disaster for President Trump, and that is why we must get as many Trump supports to the polls on Tuesday as possible. Please contact everyone that you possibly can and strongly urge them to vote for Michael Snyder for Congress on May 15th.

Our campaign has a tremendous amount of momentum as we head into election day. We have recently gotten endorsements from key Trump ally Roger Stone, U.S. Senator Rand Paul and Mike Adams the Health Ranger. True conservatives all over Idaho have been switching over to us from other candidates, and we are extremely excited about that.

But the only way that we are going to win is if our voters get to the polls and vote. In 2018, if we elect typical wimpy Republican politicians that simply want to be part of the Washington club and advance their political careers, nothing will get accomplished. Trump’s agenda will continue to get blocked by establishment RINOs, and we will continue to be deeply frustrated with what is happening on Capitol Hill.

What we need are visionary men and women that are willing to stand up to the leadership of both parties and say that enough is enough.

Let’s start a fire that will spread all across America. If we win the primary on May 15th, we will win the general election in November because this district is one of the safest districts for Republicans in the entire country. It is time to take our government back, but that is only going to happen if we all work together.

I would encourage you to forward this email to every single voter that you know. One more time, let me share with you 30 reasons why you should vote for our campaign…

#1 The Only Real Pro-Trump Candidate – All of the other leading contenders in this race originally wanted to keep Donald Trump out of the White House, but I was a Trump supporter from the very beginning. I am a true believer in the Make America Great Again agenda, and I will work tirelessly to implement that agenda once I get to Congress.

#2 The Most Conservative Candidate In This Race – Even the Coeur d’Alene Press says that I am the most conservative candidate in this race, but don’t take their word for it. Go to MichaelSnyderForCongress.com and compare what I believe with what the other candidates are saying, and I believe that you will come to the same conclusion. In fact, I have never had a single voter come back to me after making such a comparison and tell me that they believe that one of the other candidates is more conservative. That is because I truly am the most conservative candidate in this race, and true conservatives all over Idaho are standing with our campaign.

#3 Restoring Christian Values To Washington D.C. – I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and I believe that we need more Bible-believing people in positions of power in Washington. Returning to our Christian roots is the key to a positive future for America, and I will be extremely bold about my faith as a member of Congress.

#4 It’s Time To Drain The Swamp – The same rules that apply to the rest of us should also apply to Congress, and all federal officials should be banned from working as lobbyists for at least ten years after they leave government service.

#5 Restoring The Rule Of Law – For decades, the American people have watched professional politicians commit crime after crime and get away with it. It is time to restore the rule of law in this country, and a great place to begin would be with Hillary Clinton and her close associates. It will be a great day for America when they are finally put in prison for the rest of their lives.

#6 Every RINO Must Go – Way too many Republicans have been fighting Trump’s agenda and acting like Democrats. It is time to hold them accountable, and that means every ‘Republican in name only’ needs to go.

#7 Getting The Money Out Of Politics – As a new member of Congress, I would be expected to raise approximately $200,000 for the National Republican Congressional Committee. In order to “pay their dues”, every day that the House is in session members of Congress go to call centers across from the U.S. Capitol and spend up to four hours a day making calls back to their districts begging people to donate money. One of the things that makes me fundamentally different from my opponents is that I have pledged not to make these calls. Instead, I am going to spend my time in Washington doing the work that the people of Idaho sent me there to do.

#8 100% Pro-Life – No money for Planned Parenthood ever. Nearly 60 million babies have been murdered since 1973, and I am making an unbreakable pledge to vote against any bill that funds Planned Parenthood 100% of the time.

#9 100% Pro-Gun – The Constitution says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Let me be very clear – I will never back down from defending the Second Amendment even a single inch. You have a constitutional right to own any gun that you want, and you have a constitutional right to carry that gun anywhere that you want.

#10 Abolish The IRS & The Income Tax – We didn’t have an income tax from 1872 to 1913, and that was the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history. As we fight a long-term battle to abolish the income tax, in the short-term we can at least go to a flat tax or a fair tax, both of which would be far superior to what we have now.

#11 Abolish The Federal Reserve – Since the Fed was created in 1913, we have had 18 recessions, the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by about 98 percent, and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 6000 times larger. Abolishing this debt-based system is one of the keys to a bright economic future for America.

#12 Cut Red Tape – As President Trump has proposed, two existing government regulations should be eliminated for every new regulation that is enacted.

#13 Getting Federal Bureaucrats Off Our Backs – I will work very hard to get federal control freaks off of the backs of our farmers, our loggers, our miners, our ranchers and our small business owners.

#14 Local Control Of Education – It is time to get the federal government out of the education business. I want to abolish Common Core and the Department of Education, and I want control over education to be as close to the local level as possible.

#15 Shut Down Big Brother Spying – Government agencies have been conducting unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens for decades, and that needs to stop now.

#16 True Limited Government – President Trump has proposed shutting down more than 60 different government programs and agencies. That would be a good start. Instead of asking which government agencies we should close, we should be asking which government agencies really need to remain open.

#17 100% Repeal Of Obamacare – Rapidly rising health insurance premiums are financially crippling Idaho families. Republicans in Congress have fumbled the ball, and we must repeal Obamacare immediately.

#18 Build The Wall – We need to make sure that everyone comes into this country through the front door. We must end illegal immigration, and so I support President Trump’s call to build a wall on the southern border.

#19 End Sanctuary Cities – President Trump has proposed cutting off all federal funding for so-called “sanctuary cities”, and I will fight very hard to get this done.

#20 Supporting Our Veterans – My father is a vet, and I will work passionately to make sure that our veterans receive the respect, care and support that they deserve.

#21 Fighting Islamic Terror – I fully support President Trump’s fight against ISIS, and I will push for legislation that would give local communities all over America the option to say no to refugees from terrorist hotbeds.

#22 Stopping Reckless Government Spending – We are 20 trillion dollars in debt and we continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from future generations every single hour of every single day.

#23 Bringing Jobs Back To America – The U.S. has lost more than 70,000 factories since China joined the WTO in 2001. Our formerly great manufacturing cities now look like war zones, and we desperately need to start making things in this country once again.

#24 Energy Independence – The United States has abundant reserves of oil, natural gas and clean coal, and we need to take the regulatory shackles off of the energy industry so that we can start moving toward energy independence.

#25 Resisting The Globalists – We must reduce the power and influence of the United Nations, and we must strongly fight all attempts by the globalists to erode American sovereignty.

#26 Supporting States Rights – It is almost as if the 10th Amendment doesn’t even exist today. If I am elected, this is what his message to the feds will be: ‘Hand over the keys and get out of Idaho’.

#27 Health Freedom – I believe that the government should be encouraging natural health remedies instead of discouraging them, I believe that parents should always make the health decisions for their own children, and I believe that we desperately need to clean up our air, our water and our food.

#28 Better Access To Public Lands – Under Barack Obama, the federal government made it increasingly difficult for the people of Idaho to access our public lands. As a member of Congress I will do whatever I can to make sure that our citizens will have much better access to the wonderful open areas that our state has been blessed with.

#29 Holding Judges Accountable – Federal judges that disregard the U.S. Constitution and that choose to legislate from the bench should be subject to impeachment.

#30 An Unashamed Christian – Like President Trump, I am not ashamed to say that I am a Bible-believing Christian, and if we truly want to make America great again we need to return to the values and principles that this nation was founded upon.

There is a reason why Congress only has a 15 percent approval rating today. What we have in Washington D.C. right now does not look anything like what we see in the U.S. Constitution. I am going to Washington to turn the system completely upside down and to restore our Constitutional Republic.

We need to send fighters to D.C., and I am being very bold about the fact that I am not going there to play nice. I am going there to turn over the tables and to be a wrecking ball to the spirit of political correctness, and party leadership is not going to like that at all.

Once I get to Washington, I intend to set an entirely new standard for what it means to be a member of Congress. I believe in continual two-way communication, I believe in total transparency, and I want to be constantly working with the people in our district to develop solutions that will make a measurable difference in the lives of hard-working families.

We are literally in a war for the future of this country. If we stay on the path that we are currently on, it is a recipe for national suicide, but if we return to the values and the principles that this nation was founded upon I believe that we can still turn things around.

I don’t believe that this is going to be the generation when America goes completely down the toilet. Yes, the problems we are facing are great. But instead of giving up, I choose to fight for America, and I am calling on all of you to join me.

We desperately need fresh leadership in Washington, because if the status quo continues in D.C. there is not going to be any sort of a positive future for our children and our grandchildren. I have a three-year-old daughter named Atarah and my wife Meranda is currently pregnant with our next child. The decisions that we make now are going to determine what kind of a nation they grow up in. As a father, I am absolutely determined to fight for their future, and everywhere I go I meet people that feel the exact same way about their children.

If you would like to learn more about what we are trying to do, please visit MichaelSnyderForCongress.com. And please do not forget to vote tomorrow. When future generations of Americans look back on this time, let this be the moment that they remember as the turning point. Let this be the moment when a brave group of citizens stood strong against all the odds and restored our Constitutional Republic.

Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way that you want, but you can only spend it once.

Spend your life for something that really matters.

I know that many people are not accustomed to politicians expressing themselves with so much passion and energy. But I am not a politician. I am a husband, a father and a citizen that is fed up with a government that is deeply broken. We have started a grassroots revolution here in Idaho, and we want to take this revolution to Washington.

But we need your help in order to do that.

It is time for a change, and that change starts on Tuesday, May 15th.

If you do not know where you are supposed to go to vote, you can find out right here. Over the past year I have put everything that I have got into this race, and I respectfully ask for your vote.

Together we can drain the swamp, and together we can restore our Constitutional Republic.

In Liberty,

Michael Snyder

‘What President Trump Really Needs Is Michael Snyder In Congress’

Do you want to elect someone that is going to go to Congress and support President Trump, or do you want someone that has a completely different agenda? Pro-Trump conservatives all over Idaho’s first congressional district have recognized that I am the only true pro-Trump candidate running for Congress, and that is why so many Idahoans that worked to elect President Trump are now working to elect me. And on Sunday we were officially endorsed by Roger Stone. Roger has been a close friend and adviser to Donald Trump for nearly 40 years, and now he is urging everyone in Idaho to vote for Michael Snyder for Congress on May 15th. Here is one of the most important lines from his endorsement of our campaign…

“President Trump needs our help and he needs it now. What President Trump really needs is Michael Snyder in Congress.”

You can listen to audio of the entire endorsement right here. Of course this endorsement comes on the heels of high profile endorsements for our campaign from U.S. Senator Rand Paul and Mike Adams the Health Ranger. Needless to say, we have a tremendous amount of momentum heading into Election Day on May 15th, and it is absolutely imperative that we get every single one of our voters to the polls on Tuesday. If you do not know where your voting location is, you can find out right here.

Let me ask you a very simple question…

Are you going to vote for Donald Trump in 2020?

If so, wouldn’t you want to send someone to Congress that is going to vote with the President and that truly believes in his agenda?

In this race for Congress, there is only one true pro-Trump candidate. If I don’t win this election, the guy that is going to win is being funded by a Washington D.C. PAC that really hates Donald Trump. And the truth is that Trump really hates them too. And my main opponent has also surrounded himself with some of the biggest “never Trumpers” in the entire state. If he wins this race, it will be an absolute disaster for the Trump movement.

If you live in Idaho’s first congressional district, this is your chance to help President Trump. He needs you to send someone that is pro-Trump to Congress, because we are all sick and tired of watching the RINOs in Washington block his agenda.

With President Trump in the White House, this is our opportunity to turn America in a fundamentally different direction. But Trump’s effectiveness is going to be compromised if we keep sending people to Washington that are not going to stand with the President.

In November 2016, we witnessed the greatest political miracle in modern American history. This is an excerpt from an article that I published the day after Trump’s victory…

After it was all over, I kind of stumbled around my home lost in my thoughts. I was happy, confused, hopeful, stunned and pensive all at the same time. Like so many others, what I thought I knew about politics turned out to be wrong. But in other ways, the election of Donald Trump has confirmed so much of what I know to be right about America.

Ultimately, it was the American people that decided this election, because the elite were doing their best to absolutely bury him.

Never before has the mainstream media been so openly biased against a major party presidential candidate. For months on end they dumped sewage on Trump, but it didn’t work.

Never before has a major party presidential candidate faced a civil war in his own party on the eve of the election. A whole host of big names in the Republican Party publicly announced that they would not vote for Trump, but it didn’t work.

Never before have we seen a bigger October surprise than the lewd tape from 11 year ago that came out and shocked the world. That would have instantly killed the campaign of any normal politician, but it didn’t kill Trump’s campaign.

From the very beginning it seemed like Trump was at war with almost everyone, and somehow he came out on top in the end.

He beat the Bushes and the Clintons.

He beat the Republicans and the Democrats.

He beat Hollywood and the mainstream media.

He beat the pollsters and the pundits.

He beat the never-Trumpers and the billionaire donors.

He beat Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Jay Z, Beyonce, George Clooney, Matt Damon and Lebron James.

He beat the forces of globalism, elitism and political correctness.

He beat CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and Barack Obama.

He beat them all.

But 2018 could change everything.

If we don’t send pro-Trump people to Washington to support the President, we are in danger of completely squandering that miracle.

Since Raul Labrador is running for governor, the seat in Idaho’s first congressional district is open, and the people of this district have two choices. They can send a massive RINO to Washington that is surrounded by anti-Trump people and that will obstruct Trump at every opportunity, or they can send me to Washington instead. I will fight as hard as I possibly can to implement the Make America Great Again agenda, because I have believed in it from the very beginning.

There was so much hope in the air when Donald Trump was inaugurated in January 2017. The following is an excerpt from an article that I published at that time entitled “It’s Finally Morning Again In America, And A New Day For Our Country Starts NOW”

For the first time in decades, it feels like morning in America again. I was quite young when Ronald Reagan was president, and I only have vague memories from those days. But I do remember the extraordinary optimism that his leadership inspired, and my hope is that Donald Trump’s leadership will be just as inspirational. For such a very long time, it has seemed as though a giant dark cloud has been hanging over America, but now a new day is starting. If Donald Trump can be president of the United States, it seems like just about anything can be possible. And even though our nation is facing incredibly serious challenges, could it be possible that we can find a way to turn things around if we all work together?

I am asking the people of Idaho’s first congressional district to work with President Trump and I to fulfill the promise of this new era for our country. In May 2017 I called for an army of pro-Trump activists to run for office all over the nation. Now here we are one year later, and we have an opportunity to send a passionate pro-Trump activist to Washington to represent the great state of Idaho in Congress.

But now the choice is in the hands of the people of Idaho.

We are only going to win if you get out and vote.

If you do not know where you are supposed to go to vote, you can find that information online right here. In addition, please do all that you can to encourage everyone that you know in Idaho to go vote. Earlier today on Facebook, I listed four ways that you can help us get out the vote…

#1 Call 20 People That You Know And Tell Them Why You Are Voting For Michael Snyder

#2 Text 20 People That You Know And Tell Them Why You Are Voting For Michael Snyder

#3 Email Your Entire Contact List And Tell Them Why You Are Voting For Michael Snyder

#4 Post On Social Media And Tell Everyone Why You Are Voting For Michael Snyder – Use The Hastags #TeamMichael And #TeamSnyder

This is it guys.

We have one shot at winning this thing, and we need all hands on deck.

The election is on Tuesday, and the people of Idaho are going to determine the fate of this seat in Congress.

President Trump needs your support, and so please vote for the pro-Trump candidate. Voter turnout is supposed to be extremely low for this primary, and so every single vote is going to be so critical.

When I first announced that I was running for this seat, I wrote the following

Every generation of Americans has had to fight for liberty and freedom, and now it is our turn.

This is our time.

This is our second American revolution.

This revolution won’t be fought with guns and bullets. Rather, it will be a revolution of ideas, values and principles.

We can take our country back, but we have to be willing to work together. I am asking you to join us, because we are in a battle for the soul of our nation, and it is a battle that we cannot afford to lose.

Please help us drain the swamp.

Please vote for Michael Snyder for Congress on May 15th and send the fighter that President Trump needs to Washington.

By May 15th, more than a million dollars will have been spent by anti-Trump forces to promote my biggest opponent, but we aren’t going to allow them buy this seat in Congress.

We believe in the Trump revolution, and we are going to do all that we can to win this one for Trump on Tuesday.

30 Really Great Reasons To Vote For Michael Snyder For Congress

People want to feel really good about voting for someone when they go to the polls on election day, and that is why so many true conservatives are rallying around our campaign for Congress. Our campaign represents a positive conservative vision for the future of America, and that is why we have recently been officially endorsed by U.S. Senator Rand Paul and Mike Adams the Health Ranger. Voting day is on May 15th, and right now we have more momentum than any of the other campaigns as we head toward Tuesday. If you don’t know where to vote, you can find out right here. If you are not registered to vote, you can register to vote at the polls on Election Day as long as you bring proof of Idaho residency with you. It is being projected that voter turnout will be super low for the Republican primary, and so every single vote is going to be extremely important.

In the end, nobody likes to vote for “the lesser of two evils”. We all want to feel like we can enthusiastically get behind someone on voting day, and I would like to share with you 30 reasons why I believe that you should stand with our campaign…

#1 The Only Real Pro-Trump Candidate – All of the other leading contenders in this race originally wanted to keep Donald Trump out of the White House, but I was a Trump supporter from the very beginning. I am a true believer in the Make America Great Again agenda, and I will work tirelessly to implement that agenda once I get to Congress.

#2 The Most Conservative Candidate In This Race – Even the Coeur d’Alene Press says that I am the most conservative candidate in this race, but don’t take their word for it. Go to MichaelSnyderForCongress.com and compare what I believe with what the other candidates are saying, and I believe that you will come to the same conclusion. In fact, I have never had a single voter come back to me after making such a comparison and tell me that they believe that one of the other candidates is more conservative. That is because I truly am the most conservative candidate in this race, and true conservatives all over Idaho are standing with our campaign.

#3 Restoring Christian Values To Washington D.C. – I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and I believe that we need more Bible-believing people in positions of power in Washington. Returning to our Christian roots is the key to a positive future for America, and I will be extremely bold about my faith as a member of Congress.

#4 It’s Time To Drain The Swamp – The same rules that apply to the rest of us should also apply to Congress, and all federal officials should be banned from working as lobbyists for at least ten years after they leave government service.

#5 Restoring The Rule Of Law – For decades, the American people have watched professional politicians commit crime after crime and get away with it. It is time to restore the rule of law in this country, and a great place to begin would be with Hillary Clinton and her close associates. It will be a great day for America when they are finally put in prison for the rest of their lives.

#6 Every RINO Must Go – Way too many Republicans have been fighting Trump’s agenda and acting like Democrats. It is time to hold them accountable, and that means every ‘Republican in name only’ needs to go.

#7 Getting The Money Out Of Politics – As a new member of Congress, I would be expected to raise approximately $200,000 for the National Republican Congressional Committee. In order to “pay their dues”, every day that the House is in session members of Congress go to call centers across from the U.S. Capitol and spend up to four hours a day making calls back to their districts begging people to donate money. One of the things that makes me fundamentally different from my opponents is that I have pledged not to make these calls. Instead, I am going to spend my time in Washington doing the work that the people of Idaho sent me there to do.

#8 100% Pro-Life – No money for Planned Parenthood ever. Nearly 60 million babies have been murdered since 1973, and I am making an unbreakable pledge to vote against any bill that funds Planned Parenthood 100% of the time.

#9 100% Pro-Gun – The Constitution says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Let me be very clear – I will never back down from defending the Second Amendment even a single inch. You have a constitutional right to own any gun that you want, and you have a constitutional right to carry that gun anywhere that you want.

#10 Abolish The IRS & The Income Tax – We didn’t have an income tax from 1872 to 1913, and that was the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history. As we fight a long-term battle to abolish the income tax, in the short-term we can at least go to a flat tax or a fair tax, both of which would be far superior to what we have now.

#11 Abolish The Federal Reserve – Since the Fed was created in 1913, we have had 18 recessions, the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by about 98 percent, and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 6000 times larger. Abolishing this debt-based system is one of the keys to a bright economic future for America.

#12 Cut Red Tape – As President Trump has proposed, two existing government regulations should be eliminated for every new regulation that is enacted.

#13 Getting Federal Bureaucrats Off Our Backs – I will work very hard to get federal control freaks off of the backs of our farmers, our loggers, our miners, our ranchers and our small business owners.

#14 Local Control Of Education – It is time to get the federal government out of the education business. I want to abolish Common Core and the Department of Education, and I want control over education to be as close to the local level as possible.

#15 Shut Down Big Brother Spying – Government agencies have been conducting unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens for decades, and that needs to stop now.

#16 True Limited Government – President Trump has proposed shutting down more than 60 different government programs and agencies. That would be a good start. Instead of asking which government agencies we should close, we should be asking which government agencies really need to remain open.

#17 100% Repeal Of Obamacare – Rapidly rising health insurance premiums are financially crippling Idaho families. Republicans in Congress have fumbled the ball, and we must repeal Obamacare immediately.

#18 Build The Wall – We need to make sure that everyone comes into this country through the front door. We must end illegal immigration, and so I support President Trump’s call to build a wall on the southern border.

#19 End Sanctuary Cities – President Trump has proposed cutting off all federal funding for so-called “sanctuary cities”, and I will fight very hard to get this done.

#20 Supporting Our Veterans – My father is a vet, and I will work passionately to make sure that our veterans receive the respect, care and support that they deserve.

#21 Fighting Islamic Terror – I fully support President Trump’s fight against ISIS, and I will push for legislation that would give local communities all over America the option to say no to refugees from terrorist hotbeds.

#22 Stopping Reckless Government Spending – We are 20 trillion dollars in debt and we continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from future generations every single hour of every single day.

#23 Bringing Jobs Back To America – The U.S. has lost more than 70,000 factories since China joined the WTO in 2001. Our formerly great manufacturing cities now look like war zones, and we desperately need to start making things in this country once again.

#24 Energy Independence – The United States has abundant reserves of oil, natural gas and clean coal, and we need to take the regulatory shackles off of the energy industry so that we can start moving toward energy independence.

#25 Resisting The Globalists – We must reduce the power and influence of the United Nations, and we must strongly fight all attempts by the globalists to erode American sovereignty.

#26 Supporting States Rights – It is almost as if the 10th Amendment doesn’t even exist today. If I am elected, this is what his message to the feds will be: ‘Hand over the keys and get out of Idaho’.

#27 Health Freedom – I believe that the government should be encouraging natural health remedies instead of discouraging them, I believe that parents should always make the health decisions for their own children, and I believe that we desperately need to clean up our air, our water and our food.

#28 Better Access To Public Lands – Under Barack Obama, the federal government made it increasingly difficult for the people of Idaho to access our public lands. As a member of Congress I will do whatever I can to make sure that our citizens will have much better access to the wonderful open areas that our state has been blessed with.

#29 Holding Judges Accountable – Federal judges that disregard the U.S. Constitution and that choose to legislate from the bench should be subject to impeachment.

#30 An Unashamed Christian – Like President Trump, I am not ashamed to say that I am a Bible-believing Christian, and if we truly want to make America great again we need to return to the values and principles that this nation was founded upon.

To learn more about our campaign, please visit MichaelSnyderForCongress.com. If our positive conservative vision of the future resonates with you, I would respectfully ask for your vote on May 15th. Once again, if you do not know where to vote, you can find your polling location right here. And please call or email every single person that you know in Idaho’s first congressional district and encourage them to go vote.

The campaign that does the best job getting out the vote is going to win this thing, and it is going to take every single one of us working together to pull off this victory.

When we win, it is going to be a massive shock to the entire Idaho political establishment. Washington D.C. PACs are spending a tremendous amount of money to try to buy this open seat in Congress, but we are not going to let them be victorious. Our extraordinary group of grassroots conservatives is working around the clock, and we are on the verge of pulling off the greatest miracle in the history of Idaho politics.

Senator Rand Paul Has Officially Endorsed Michael Snyder For Congress

The leading voice for liberty in the United States Senate, Rand Paul, has officially endorsed our campaign. This is yet another game changing moment as our campaign continues to build momentum leading up to Election Day on May 15th. If you don’t know where to vote on May 15th, you can find out by entering your address right here. If you are not registered to vote yet, you can register at the polls on Election Day as long as you bring proof of Idaho residency with you. Make sure that they give you a Republican ballot, because that is the ballot that I am on. Anyone that is registered with another party (Democrat, Libertarian, etc.) will not be able to use a Republican ballot. Fortunately, the vast majority of Idahoans will be able to vote in the Republican primary, and thanks to our endorsement from Rand Paul a whole lot of people are buzzing about our campaign right now.

A copy of the endorsement has been posted on Rand Paul’s official Twitter page right here. If you have not seen it yet, the following is what Rand Paul had to say about our campaign…

Michael Snyder is a champion of liberty and the only one I can support for Congress in Idaho’s first congressional district. He’s the only one who will stand up to the corruption in Washington DC and fight the ever expanding reach of big government.

We need to send an outsider and a fighter to Congress and Michael Snyder is that man. I urge all Idahoans to get out and vote on May 15th for Michael Snyder for Congress if you want to see real change in Washington.

Rand Paul and his father Ron have both served this nation with distinction, and so it truly is a great honor to receive this endorsement.

Please help us get this endorsement out to as many people as possible on social media. You can find it posted on my Facebook page right here. Please like, share and spread this to as many voters as you possibly can.

If you are not that familiar with Senator Rand Paul, the following comes directly from his official U.S. Senate page

U.S. Senator Rand Paul, M.D., is one of the nation’s leading advocates for liberty. Elected to the United States Senate in 2010, Dr. Paul has proven to be an outspoken champion for constitutional liberties and fiscal responsibility. As a fierce advocate against government overreach, Dr. Paul has fought tirelessly to return government to its limited, constitutional scope. As a hard-working and dedicated physician – not a career politician – Dr. Paul came to Washington to shake things up and to make a difference. Dr. Paul is a devoted husband and father of three that is currently living with his family in Bowling Green, Ky., where Dr. Paul owned his own ophthalmology practice and performed eye surgery for 18 years. Dr. Paul has been married for 25 years to Kelley Ashby Paul of Russellville, Ky., and they have three sons together: William, Duncan, and Robert.

On Friday we also learned that we have just been endorsed by ALIPAC.

That was another great honor, because ALIPAC is one of the leading voices on immigration issues in the entire country. The following information about ALIPAC comes from their official website

ALIPAC’s FOUR POINT PLATFORM: “Simply enforce our existing immigration laws!”

1. Secure Our Borders.
2. Crack down on employers that intentionally hire illegals.
3. Remove incentives and rewards to illegals such as licenses, welfare, and other taxpayer benefits.
4. Enforce our existing laws and deport illegal aliens when convicted of crimes or detected during routine law enforcement activities.

We are so excited to have so many great patriots behind our campaign. Alex Jones, Mike Adams of Natural News, Senator Dan Foreman, Vote Team Trump and the largest Tea Party group on Facebook are all 100% behind us as well.

There are only four days left in the campaign, and we are doing all that we can to win this thing. Thanks to unprecedented intervention by Washington D.C. PACs, close to a million dollars has been spent promoting the campaign of one of my opponents. The Washington D.C. establishment is trying to buy this election, but we aren’t going to allow that to happen.

The PACs are running television commercials 24 hours a day in a desperate attempt to win this seat, but we are countering their air war with the best ground game of any of the seven campaigns. We have an absolutely amazing grassroots team that is hitting doors, making calls and pounding social media all over the district. It has been one of the great honors of my life to serve alongside the extraordinary people that God has brought into this campaign, and I have made so many new friends that I will have for the rest of my life.

Idaho’s first congressional district covers the western half of Idaho all the way from Boundary County in the north to Owyhee County in the south. We have put thousands upon thousands of miles on our vehicles as we have traveled across this enormous district over and over again, and I believe that we have held more townhalls than any of the other campaigns by a good margin.

I look forward to going to Washington and working with Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and other true conservatives in Congress to move this country in a fundamentally different direction. And of course our biggest ally will be President Trump, and we will be working as hard as we possibly can to implement the Make America Great Again agenda.

Once again, if you don’t know where to vote you can find your polling place right here. And please forward this email to as many people as you can. The key to winning this election is turning out the vote on Tuesday, and we are encouraging everyone “to get their 10”. Everyone has at least 10 family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. that they can personally contact and encourage to go vote.

It is expected that the voter turnout rate in this election will be around 20 percent, and if we do a really great job of getting our people to go vote we will win this thing.

Our Constitutional Republic is hanging by a thread, and we truly are at a crossroads. This is a battle for the future of our nation, and it is a battle that we cannot afford to lose.

As for me and my family, we choose to fight, and we are respectfully asking for your vote on May 15th.

Watch The Most Controversial Congressional Debate In Idaho History

It isn’t often that you get to see a seasoned politician completely melt down on live television. On Sunday evening, the last debate for the candidates running for Congress in Idaho’s first congressional district was held, and it was certainly a wild one. In the weeks leading up to the debate, voters all over Idaho had been heatedly debating whether to vote for Michael Snyder or Russ Fulcher all over social media, and both of us were positioned right in the center of the stage. Unfortunately for the Fulcher campaign, Russ delivered an absolutely disastrous performance. When reporter Betsy Russell asked Russ about the Mueller investigation, he responded by saying that “I haven’t even been following that closely”. If that wasn’t bad enough, he followed that up by admitting two more times that he had not been paying attention to the Mueller investigation. Needless to say, jaws dropped open all over the studio as Fulcher dropped this bombshell. The Mueller investigation has been the biggest news story in Congress for over a year, and Russ Fulcher never actually answered Betsy Russell’s question because as he openly confessed, he had not “been following that closely”. How can someone running for Congress not have a basic understanding of the most important issue that Congress has been dealing with? Throughout the debate the differences between Russ and myself were glaringly obvious, and if you have not seen it yet, you can watch the entire congressional debate right here

https://video.idahoptv.org/video/republican-congressional-district-1-2018-primary-wdm891/

I honestly do not know how Fulcher’s campaign can survive this absolutely nightmarish performance. A lot of people are comparing it to Rick Perry’s horrific performance during a presidential debate a number of years ago. We have had numerous people tell us that they are switching from Fulcher to #TeamSnyder after watching the debate, and that is why it is so important to get this debate out to as many voters as possible. Please share the link to the debate with everyone that you know, because if we could get every voter in the district to watch it we would win by a landslide.

Voting day is May 15th, but early voting has already begun. In fact, we are very much encouraging everyone to go out and vote today. To learn where early voting is happening in your county, contact your local county clerk. You can find a list of all of the county clerks right here. In many instances, early voting is being held at your local county courthouse.

Thanks to our big victory in the debate, our campaign has generated a tremendous amount of momentum. Please remember to go vote, and please tell everyone that you know to vote as soon as they can. It is being projected that voter turnout in this race may be under 20 percent, and so if we do a great job of getting voters to the polls we will definitely win this thing.

Once again I would like to thank all of the incredible people that have gotten involved and made our campaign possible, and if you would like to learn more about #TeamSnyder, please visit MichaelSnyderForCongress.com.

10 Amazing Facts About America’s Economic Recovery From Trump’s State Of The Union Address

If the U.S. economy continues to surge under President Trump, I may need to change the name of my website. In December 2009 I started “The Economic Collapse”, and it was quite an appropriate title at the time. In fact, the 10 years immediately preceding the Trump presidency was one of the worst stretches for the U.S. economy in our entire history. But now things are changing. Manufacturers are coming back to America, unemployment is falling, and the stock market has been soaring.

During his State of the Union address, President Trump called this “our new American moment”, and at this time it is hard for anyone to disagree with him. Things are definitely better for ordinary Americans than they were under previous administrations, and even some of Trump’s most hardcore critics are starting to come around.

The Democrats were hoping to use Trump’s speech to launch a new wave of attacks against him, but that massively backfired. The State of the Union address may have been Trump’s best performance to date, and even a CBS News poll found that his speech got an astounding 75 percent approval rating.

No matter how Democrats try to spin things, the truth is that there is a lot of good economic news right now. The following are 10 amazing facts about America’s economic recovery that come directly from the transcript of Trump’s State of the Union address

#1 “Since the election, we have created 2.4 million new jobs, including 200,000 new jobs in manufacturing alone.”

#2 “After years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages.”

#3 “Unemployment claims have hit a 45-year low.”

#4 “African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded”

#5 “Hispanic American unemployment has also reached the lowest levels in history”

#6 “Small business confidence is at an all-time high.”

#7 “The stock market has smashed one record after another, gaining $8 trillion in value.”

#8 “And just as I promised the American people from this podium 11 months ago, we enacted the biggest tax cuts and reforms in American history.”

#9 “A typical family of four making $75,000 will see their tax bill reduced by $2,000 — slashing their tax bill in half.”

#10 “We slashed the business tax rate from 35 percent all the way down to 21 percent, so American companies can compete and win against anyone in the world.”

And today we received even more good news.

According to CNBC, U.S. businesses added another 234,000 jobs during the month of January…

The new year got off to a strong start for job creation, with businesses adding 234,000 in January, according to a report Wednesday from ADP and Moody’s Analytics.

Economists surveyed by Reuters had been looking for private payrolls to grow by 185,000.

Are you starting to understand why I am so proud to be a pro-Trump candidate for Congress?

Many of my opponents are doing their best to distance themselves from Trump. In fact, one of my biggest opponents has said that Donald Trump “can go straight to hell”. It is absolutely imperative that we fill this open seat in Congress with someone that is 100% pro-Trump, and if you want to see that happen I hope that you will join our team.

Many Republicans opposed Ronald Reagan during his early days in the White House too, but eventually everyone in the party came around, and that is happening with Trump too.

For example, just check out what former opponent Ted Cruz had to say about Trump’s speech

“The president did an incredible job highlighting the parents of those who have lost their children to MS-13 and violent illegal aliens,” Cruz said. “Highlighting heroes, whether police officers and coastguardsmen or first responders across the country. And the president did a tremendous job overall focusing on jobs, on wages going up, on the historic tax cut.”

“I thought it was a very, very strong speech and a strong night for the president,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Democrats are being as bitter as ever.

Every time the camera flashed to Nancy Pelosi or any of the other top Democrats they looked like they were horribly constipated. And one top Democrat actually couldn’t make it through the entire thing. At one point Republican lawmakers began chanting “USA”, and that was way too much for Luis Gutierrez to handle…

Luis Gutierrez, the illegal alien-loving congressman from Illinois, appeared to be triggered during President Trump’s soaring rhetoric during the State of the Union address and fled the House chamber.

Trump praised the Capitol building, calling it a monument to the American people.

As applause broke out, so did chants of “USA! USA! USA!”

Gutierrez left his seat as several Democrats patted him on the arm as he retreated to a safe space.

And after the speech was over, the radical left was criticizing Trump for some of the most ridiculous things imaginable.

For instance, the ACLU complained that Trump used the word “America” more than 80 times in his speech.

And check out what Joy Reid of MSNBC posted on Twitter

Church … family … police … military … the national anthem … Trump trying to call on all the tropes of 1950s-era nationalism. The goal of this speech appears to be to force the normalization of Trump on the terms of the bygone era his supporters are nostalgic for.

Are you kidding me?

Faith, family and freedom have never gone out of style, and the Trump movement is helping to restore pride in our country all across America.

This is our opportunity to take our nation back from radical leftists such as Nancy Pelosi, Joy Reid and the ACLU. The 2018 mid-term elections are going to be the most important mid-term elections in modern American history, and if you believe in what Donald Trump is trying to do, I hope that you will stand with us.

Michael Snyder is a pro-Trump candidate for Congress in Idaho’s First Congressional District, and you can learn how you can get involved in the campaign on his official website. His new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters” is available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.

Our Critical Fundraising Deadline Is In 8 Days, And We Have 800,000 People To Reach Over The Next 4 Months

Did you know that Idaho has the fastest growing population of any state in the entire country? I was very surprised when my friend Tom mentioned this, and I decided to go check it out for myself. And I found out that it is actually true. In particular, north Idaho is growing by leaps and bounds. It seems like half the people that I meet have moved into the area within the past 10 years, and most of them are coming from liberal hellholes such as California. People are sick and tired of leftist control freaks trying to micromanage every aspect of their lives, and so they are flocking to places such as north Idaho were people are still trying to live free.

As a result of all of this migration, Idaho has become one of the most conservative states in the entire nation. There are two congressional districts in Idaho, and right now the first congressional district is being represented by Raul Labrador. He is moving on to run for governor, and so we have a situation where there is an open seat.

I am one of the six people that are running to replace Raul Labrador, and this is the most wide open congressional race that I have seen in my entire life. The latest numbers that we have indicate that up to 70 percent of voters in this district are undecided. None of the candidates has very much name recognition or voter support at this point, and the Republican primary is less than five months away.

My team is working on a brand new strategy to get our message to the 800,000+ people living in this district much more effectively than the other candidates can, but at this moment some of the other candidates have been able to raise a little bit more money than we have. Our absolutely crucial December 31st FEC fundraising deadline is just 8 days away, and this is our last chance to make a good impression with Republicans on the national level. Unfortunately, the March 31st deadline is simply too close to the primary to matter. If you plan to help us with this campaign, we could really, really use your help right now

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Many have told us that they will write us big checks if we win the primary. But at that point it will be a done deal. This district is considered to be very, very safe for Republicans because it is so conservative, and so whoever wins the Republican primary will be the next member of Congress from this district.

We plan to launch the next phase of our campaign at the beginning of January, and from that point there will be just four and a half months until election day. Over that time we have to get our message to more than 800,000 people, and we can do it cheaper than the other guys can, but we are still going to need plenty of resources. I am asking everyone that is willing to stand with us to consider donating at this extremely critical time

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

In the end, this race is going to be just like races all over the country in 2018. It is going to be a referendum on President Trump, and I am the pro-Trump option in this race.

Whoever is elected in this district is going to make decisions that affect every man, woman and child in the entire country once they get to Washington. Do you want this open seat to be filled by someone that is going to block President Trump’s agenda, or do you want someone that will fight like crazy to implement the Make America Great Again agenda? If you stand with President Trump, the best thing that you can do for Trump in 2018 is to support pro-Trump candidates for Congress such as myself

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Over the next four months I will write when I can, but I am going to be pouring everything that I have got into this campaign. It is going to be an immense sacrifice of time, energy, emotion and income, but there is no other choice. If one of the establishment candidates takes this open seat, it will be a major disaster.

I haven’t told you all what I have been going through behind the scenes. We are being brutally dragged through the mud behind closed doors, and one of the other candidates has viciously attacked my faith repeatedly.

There are certainly lines that must never be crossed in a campaign, and attacking someone’s faith is one of them. I am a Bible-believing Christian, and I won’t apologize for that.

I believe that good and decent people will have the last laugh in this case, and that the people of Idaho will choose to reject any candidate that attacks the faith of Bible-believing Christians.

If you would like to help me take this fight all the way to the finish line, please prayerfully consider financially supporting us today

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

The good news is that none of the other candidates is doing very well so far. Personally, I thought that a couple of them would be doing so much better, but they are blowing it.

That has given us time to get our act together, and we have needed it. Now we have a great plan to get our very simple message to more than 800,000 people over the next four months, and the only ingredient that we are missing is the resources that are necessary in order to execute that plan.

I will just be very honest and tell you that I need your help. We literally need a miracle, because we are way behind our goal for our fundraising deadline on December 31st, and over the next couple of months somehow we need to raise enough money to reach hundreds of thousands of undecided voters

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

If someone else raises more money and does a better job of reaching the undecided voters, that could be the difference on election day.

But I do not believe that will happen. I believe that members of the Trump army all over the nation will rise up and form an unbeatable team behind pro-Trump candidates such as myself. Just like in November 2016, if we can activate all of the “deplorables” out there then there will be no way that we can lose.

The fate of the Trump movement is in our hands. For many years, I was convinced that we would never be able to wrestle control of the government away from the establishment, but Donald Trump pulled off a miracle. He was able to win the presidency, but the battle is far from over.

Now we must take Congress, and we are asking for your help. The future of this nation is literally hanging in the balance, and this is a battle that we cannot afford to lose.

Our All-Important Financial Deadline Is In 15 Days, And Our Campaign Is Counting On A Major Miracle

Tonight, I am writing this from my little office where I have spent more time than anywhere else over the past six years. During the day, I can look out the window and see snow-capped mountain peaks all the way on the other side of the valley. Life is so simple and so beautiful here, and in my wildest dreams I never imagined that our nice, quiet life would be interrupted by a run for Congress. But then that fateful day in May arrived, and life hasn’t been the same for Meranda and I ever since.

Whoever ultimately wins this race is not just going to be making decisions that affect Idaho. The decisions that members of Congress make affect every man, woman and child in the entire country, and that means that whoever wins this race is going to be making decisions that have a direct impact on your life no matter where you live.

Unfortunately, if I don’t win this race someone really bad will almost certainly take this seat. For example, one of the leading candidates is currently a member of the state legislature, and he has a voting record that is so bad that it was once given an “F-“ grade by the Idaho Freedom Foundation.

Yes, you read that correctly.

I didn’t even know that you could get below an “F” grade. For the most recent session, his vote index score was 42.3 out of 100. This was the lowest score for any Republican, and there were actually only four Democrats that had a voting record that was as bad or worse than his.

The other member of the state legislature that has entered this race is almost nearly as bad. Her vote index score for the most recent session was 54.3, and she is widely known to be an extremely liberal Republican.

I once wondered why the Lord would lead me to enter this race, but now it is becoming crystal clear. If I don’t win, this seat will almost certainly be won by one of these RINOs, and we cannot allow that to happen.

December 31st is the most important financial deadline that our campaign is facing so far. Last week I explained that we desperately need to raise $30,000 by the end of December, and only a couple thousand dollars has come in so far. I know that most people are entirely focused on the holidays this time of the year, but I cannot stress hard enough how much we need your help right now. During the first three months of 2018, Republican organizations all over the country will decide who they are going to back in this race, and it is absolutely imperative that we have good numbers to report to them. If you would like to make a donation to the campaign, you can do so at this link

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Of the six candidates in this race, at this point we are projecting that we will come in either fourth or fifth in fundraising this quarter at our current pace.

That would be a disaster.

According to virtually every other measurement, we are absolutely crushing our competition in this race. We are reaching the most voters, we have more campaign website traffic than anyone else, we are destroying our opponents on social media, and we received more votes in the most recent online poll than all of the other candidates combined.

But if we don’t finish in the top three in fundraising this quarter, top Republicans on the national level aren’t going to care about any of that.

In fact, I know exactly what they are going to say to me when I talk to them.

They are going to say that I had a nice start, but that I wasn’t able to raise enough money to take it across the finish line.

This is literally our last chance to impress Republicans on the national level. The next report after this one won’t come out until just over a month before the election, and that will be way too late.

I need everyone that believes in this campaign to stand with us now. There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of people that have volunteered or donated so far, and we cannot let them down. If you would like to become a part of the team, you can donate online right here

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Earlier this evening, Meranda and I attended a celebration in town. Everyone there was so excited about our race for Congress, and that was very encouraging to see. At one point someone asked me for a yard sign, but I had to admit that we don’t have one to give him right now. Demand for campaign materials has been crazy, and we are starting to run out of just about everything.

So we need to print up more signs, more brochures and more mailers. More than 800,000 people live in this district, and we need to get our message to every single one of them if we hope to win.

Can you imagine how much it costs to reach 800,000 people?

Without your help, we are not going to be able to do that. Would you help us print the campaign materials that we desperately need? The donation limit per campaign cycle is $2,700 per person. That means that a husband and a wife can collectively donate $5,400. If just one couple was willing to help us at that level, we would be able to print up all of the materials that we currently need

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Right now we are actually offering a free bumper sticker to any voter in our district that wants one. It is a great way to spread the word about the campaign, and it doesn’t cost a lot to print them up. We are able to get things done much cheaper than other campaigns are able to, and I am blessed to be working with people that can stretch one dollar into four or five.

Even though a couple of the other campaigns have raised more money than us so far, nobody else can match what we are doing, and we want to take things to the next level. But we need resources in order to do that, and this is such a critical time.

Over the next few weeks, this race is really going to take shape. It is absolutely imperative that we are considered one of the leading contenders, and with your help we can get there.

I have been told that the only way that we can lose this race is if someone else raises much more money than us. So far, nobody in this race has been able to raise much money, and that has given us time to get our act together.

Fundraising is new to me, and I am sure that if I was willing to be dishonest that I could do so much better. All I know how to do is to tell you the truth and hope that you will support what we are trying to do.

This is our campaign, and we literally have people from coast to coast that are praying for us. Please pray for blessing, protection and that God’s will would be done. And if you would like to bless our campaign financially, we would greatly, greatly appreciate the help

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

I wish that I could sit down with you in your living room and show you how close to victory we are. Things are looking so much brighter for our campaign than they were a couple of months ago, and we now have a campaign team that literally stretches from the very top county in the state to the very bottom county in the state.

But this is still very much a wide open race. Since Raul Labrador is running for governor, there is no incumbent, and there are six of us that are running to replace him. The numbers tell us that name recognition and voter support for the other five candidates is very low, and most voters are still in the “undecided” category.

We need to reach those undecided voters before the other guys are able to. We know exactly how to do that, and we just need the fuel in our tanks to be able to get that done. If you were ever going to give to the campaign, now is the time

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

If we are able to raise the rest of the $30,000 that we desperately need by the end of December, I will be absolutely floored.

My team is counting on a major miracle, and I don’t want to let them down.

We have only 15 days until our most important deadline so far, and we feel like we are way out on a limb.

But God can make a way where there seems to be no way, and we know that with God all things are possible.

So we will just share the fact that we really need your help to meet our deadline, and we will trust that God will move in the hearts of those that are supposed to support us.

I would like to thank everyone that has gotten involved in the campaign so far. Together, we have already done what others said was impossible, and next May we are going to absolutely shock the world.

Our Dec. 31st Federal Fundraising Deadline Is At The End Of The Month, And We Desperately Need A $30,000 December Miracle

December 31st is the most important deadline that our campaign for Congress has faced so far. All over the country people will be watching to see how much money we raised in the fourth quarter, and a good result could mean lots of support and contributions from Republican organizations all over the country. But a bad result would be disastrous. The key will be to show that we raised more money during our second quarter than we did during our first quarter, and right now we are behind that pace. This time of the year people are so preoccupied with holiday preparations, and so many political campaigns go into “hibernation mode” until after the first of the year. But we cannot afford to do that, because what will happen over the next few weeks could be the deciding factor in whether we win or not next May. If we can raise $30,000 by December 31st we will be where we need to be, and if you would like to help you can do so right here

We won the most recent online poll by a landslide, and it was wonderful to see such enthusiasm for our campaign, but the truth is that most voters here in Idaho are still undecided. Whoever reaches those undecided voters the best is likely to win, and we need resources in order to do that.

At this moment, nobody in this race has raised very much money at all, but a couple of my opponents have been raising more money than I have. So even though I am the most conservative candidate in this race and I have the best message by a very wide margin, there is a danger that they could do a better job of reaching the undecided voters by simply outspending me.

I very much need your help. If every one of my readers were to donate just $10 today, I could permanently stop raising funds for the campaign tomorrow, but so far only a very small fraction of my readers have responded. Even with such a small response, we are still on the same playing field as the other guys, but if more of you join the team we could pass them easily. Please help us this month, because we very much need it

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

We have been working really hard, and we believe that we will have some game changing announcements in the coming weeks. That is all that I can really share right now. This campaign is a 24 hour endeavor, and there is one key member of the team that has literally been sleeping just a couple of hours a night for the past several weeks.

We are pouring our hearts and our souls into this thing, because we believe that fighting for our country is the right thing to do. A good friend told me today that I look tired, and I had to admit that I am actually quite exhausted. But the election is now just a little over five months away, and so we are in a mad sprint to the finish line.

If you appreciate what we are doing, please consider adding us to your gift list this December. When you give the gift of liberty, you are doing something far more meaningful than giving someone a fruitcake or an ugly holiday sweater that they will never use. If you would like to send us some desperately needed help, you can find everything that you need at this link

This campaign has been such a walk of faith for all of us. We are putting immense amounts of time, effort and energy into this campaign, and we don’t know if the resources that we need are going to be there in the end. We are just trusting that our Father will move in the hearts of our supporters to send us what we need when it is time. Our reputations are on the line, and there have been times when it has looked like we could fall flat on our faces, but God keeps doing little miracle after little miracle.

The next three weeks are going to tell us a lot. During this time we are going to be meeting with some of the most important Republicans in the entire nation, and it is absolutely imperative that we have some good news to share with them. We just can’t show up with a bunch of happy talk and hope to persuade these individuals that they should get involved in the campaign. We must have some good numbers to show them, and so that is why I am pleading for your help tonight

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

I have said it before, but now this is more true than ever – it is do or die time for our campaign. This campaign belongs to every single one of you that has volunteered, donated, promoted the material on our campaign Facebook page or has emailed friends and family about what we are trying to do. Everyone that has gotten involved is invested in the outcome of this campaign, and after all of the sacrifices that so many of you have made, I feel such a duty to work harder than I have ever worked before all the way through election day on May 15th.

Tonight I am so exhausted that I didn’t really want to sit down and write a campaign update. But I must keep going, because there is no way that I am going to let down the others that have sacrificed so much for the team. Just recently, a precious friend of mine that lives in another state sent a 5 dollar bill to help our campaign. In a note she explained that she was retired and was living on an extremely limited income, but she very much wanted to do something to help our efforts. That note pierced my heart, and it redoubled my determination not to let anyone down. Even if you can only give just a single dollar that makes you part of the team, and if you would like to become part of what we are doing you can do so at this link

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

I can’t promise you that we will win, but I can promise you that we are going to work like mad all the way through May 15th. Some of the best political minds and most influential conservatives in the entire state are on our side, and we are gaining more momentum with each passing day.

I believe that we are on the verge of some major breakthroughs, and I believe that we will have some extremely exciting news to share with you very soon.

But for now please keep praying and please keep spreading the word about our campaign. Our efforts are making a huge difference, and in just a few months we are going to shock the entire country with how well we do on election day.

Help! Here Is What We Need In Order For Our Campaign For Congress To Be Successful, And It Is Going To Take All Of Us

When I first started running for Congress, I would often use the phrase “my campaign”, but I have completely removed that term from my vocabulary. What I have come to realize is that this must be “our campaign”, because it would literally be impossible for me to win if I tried to do this on my own. Last week we launched our very first “money bomb”, and it got off to a great start, but giving has dwindled down to almost nothing over Thanksgiving weekend. We desperately need your help, because if we stay at the current pace there is no way that we are going to meet our top goal. If you would like to help make this “money bomb” a success, you can do so right here

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Let me share with you guys exactly where our campaign is at. We are leading in enthusiasm, and the most recent online poll by Idaho’s largest political talk radio station is clear evidence of how excited our supporters truly are.

But as of the end of last quarter, we were fourth in raising money so far, and that is not good news.

Because even though we are the most conservative campaign, and even though we have the best message by far, another candidate could potentially win by simply spending more money and doing a better job of getting his message out to the voters.

Fortunately, none of the six candidates in this race has raised very much money at all so far, and that means that if we work really, really hard we still have a shot at raising more money than anyone else by the end of the campaign. If you would like to help us get there, please donate online today

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Traditionally, the candidate that raises the most money wins, but that is not always true. For example, Hillary Clinton spent far more money than Donald Trump did, and Trump still won.

But if we want to win this race, we need to at least be on the same playing field, and that is why I am working so hard to try to raise funds.

I am totally new to political fundraising, and I am trying to learn quickly. Since I am not a corrupt professional politician, I am not getting big checks from the special interests and the big donors like the other guys are, and so we are relying on lots and lots of small donors that want to help us take our government back.

We need your help, and if you would like to join the team you can find our contribution page here

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Most professional politicians will never publicly tell us specifically where they stand on the issues or what they intend to do once they get into office. They want to keep things as vague as possible publicly in order to keep from offending any potential voters, and then when they can discuss things with you privately they will tell you whatever it is that they think that you want to hear. In the end, they want to win you over with their charm, and they hope that you never actually look at their voting records after they are elected.

I know the tricks that the professional politicians use, but I am not a professional politician. I am going to tell everyone where I stand and what I intend to do once I get to Washington. In fact, the following are 22 of the key issues that I am running on…

#1 A Pro-Trump Christian Conservative – Michael is the most conservative candidate in this race, and he is proud to stand with President Trump.

#2 It’s Time To Drain The Swamp – The same rules that apply to the rest of us should also apply to Congress, and Michael is going to fight hard to clean up the corruption in Washington.

#3 Every RINO Must Go – Way too many Republicans have been fighting Trump’s agenda and acting like Democrats. It is time to hold them accountable, and that means every ‘Republican in name only’ needs to go.

#4 100% Pro-Life – No money for Planned Parenthood ever. Nearly 60 million babies have been murdered since 1973, and Michael is making an unbreakable pledge to vote against any bill that funds Planned Parenthood 100% of the time.

#5 100% Pro-Gun – The Constitution says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Michael believes that every American has a constitutional right to carry a gun, and he will never back down from defending the Second Amendment even a single inch.

#6 Abolish The IRS & The Income Tax – We didn’t have an income tax from 1872 to 1913, and that was the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history. As we fight a long-term battle to abolish the income tax, in the short-term we can at least go to a flat tax or a fair tax, both of which would be far superior to what we have now.

#7 Abolish The Federal Reserve – Since the Fed was created in 1913, we have had 18 recessions, the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by about 98 percent, and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 6000 times larger. Abolishing this debt-based system is one of the keys to a bright economic future for America.

#8 Getting Federal Bureaucrats Off Our Backs – Michael will work to get the federal government off of the backs of our farmers, our loggers, our miners, our ranchers and our small business owners.

#9 Local Control Of Education – It is time to get the federal government out of the education business. Michael wants to abolish Common Core and the Department of Education, and he wants control over education to be as close to the local level as possible.

#10 Shut Down Big Brother Spying – Government agencies have been conducting unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens for decades, and that needs to stop now.

#11 True Limited Government – President Trump has proposed shutting down more than 60 different government programs and agencies. That would be a good start. Instead of asking which government agencies we should close, we should be asking which government agencies really need to remain open.

#12 100% Repeal Of Obamacare – Rapidly rising health insurance premiums are financially crippling Idaho families. Republicans in Congress have fumbled the ball, and we must repeal Obamacare immediately.

#13 Build The Wall – We need to make sure that everyone comes into this country through the front door. We must end illegal immigration, and so Michael supports President Trump’s call to build a wall on the southern border.

#14 Supporting Our Veterans – Michael’s father is a vet, and Michael will work passionately to make sure that our veterans receive the respect, care and support that they deserve.

#15 Fighting Islamic Terror – Michael fully supports the fight against ISIS, and he will push for legislation that would give local communities all over America the option to say no to refugees from terrorist hotbeds.

#16 Stopping Reckless Government Spending – We are 20 trillion dollars in debt and we continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from future generations every single hour of every single day.

#17 Bringing Jobs Back To America – The U.S. has lost more than 70,000 factories since China joined the WTO in 2001. Our formerly great manufacturing cities now look like war zones, and we desperately need to start making things in this country once again.

#18 Resisting The Globalists – We must strongly fight all attempts by the globalists to erode American sovereignty.

#19 Supporting States Rights – It is almost as if the 10th Amendment doesn’t even exist today. If Michael is elected, this is what his message to the feds will be: ‘Hand over the keys and get out of Idaho’.

#20 Removing The Wolves – Under Bill Clinton, Canadian gray wolves were brought to Idaho. These wolves travel in packs and are killing machines. Michael is 100% committed to removing these wolves from our state.

#21 Holding Judges Accountable – Federal judges that disregard the U.S. Constitution and that choose to legislate from the bench should be subject to impeachment.

#22 An Unashamed Christian – Michael is not ashamed to say that he is a Bible-believing Christian, and if we truly want to make America great again we need to return to the values and principles that this nation was founded upon.

How many members of Congress do we currently have that are willing to fight for those things?

Not many at all.

If we want to take our government back, we have got to work together, and you can help us win next May by donating here

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

I am sacrificing immense amounts of time, effort and energy because I believe that we need someone in Washington that will fight for our way of life.

The key is to win the Republican primary next May. Raul Labrador is running for governor, and so there is no incumbent in this race, and there are now six people running to replace him. None of the other five are acceptable candidates, and so if I don’t win this race it is going to end up being a major disaster for conservatives.

If we raise as much money as the other leading candidates, we will definitely win. Using cutting edge technology, we can target voters much, much better than the other guys can. But we need help in order to get this done, and every single dollar makes such a big difference. If you can help us, we would greatly, greatly appreciate it

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

This is our campaign, and we need everyone on board if we are going to win. We need more volunteers here in the first district, we need more social media workers all over the nation, and we need more prayer warriors interceding for us.

If you can help, please contact us today. There is so much to do, and we have less than six months until the primary next May. If we can win that primary, the general election should definitely go in our favor because this district is overwhelmingly Republican.

Our path to victory is very clear, but we are going to have to work exceedingly hard to get there. If you feel a tug on your heart as you read this, please don’t ignore it, because we definitely need you as part of the team.

In Liberty,

Michael

Please Contribute To The 2017 Michael Snyder For Congress Money Bomb

Wouldn’t it be great if Congress was absolutely packed with strong constitutional conservatives that consistently fought for true conservative values? It has been said that our government is a reflection of who we are as a people, and the only way that we are going to take our government back is if we fight for it. I have talked to so many conservatives that are sick and tired of being betrayed by “Republicans in name only” over and over again, but the only way that we are going to break this cycle is if good people start running and if we get behind them. Personally, I am in a very tight race in Idaho’s first congressional district, and the only way that I can win is if it is a total team effort. There is no way that I can do this alone, and fortunately we have had some absolutely extraordinary people get involved in the campaign as volunteers. But if you don’t have the time to serve as a volunteer, you can still contribute to the campaign in other ways. Today we are launching our “2016 Money Bomb”, and the deadline for participating is November 30th. If you would like to donate, you can do so here

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Our first tier goal for the money bomb is $4,500, which will help us cover the cost of desperately needed campaign materials. The good news is that there is an overwhelming demand for campaign materials all over the district, but now we are running low on almost everything. Our county chairs are telling us that they need more signs, more bumper stickers and more brochures, and we are working hard to get them everything that they need.

Our second tier goal for the money bomb is $15,000, which will help us get our message directly to the voters. Thanks to cutting edge voter outreach technology, we can reach voters much more cheaply than my opponents can. For just $17, we can get our message out to 200 voters or more, and every vote is going to count in this very tight race. Our goal is 50,000 votes, and if we reach that goal we are definitely going to win this election.

Our third tier goal for the money bomb is $25,000, and if we hit that goal we are going to be able to create an unbelievable amount of momentum for our campaign. None of my five opponents has raised very much money yet, and if we can raise $25,000 during our “2016 Money Bomb”, that is going to be a gamechanger.

One of the things that we need resources for is to create higher quality videos. If you want to get an idea of what we have done so far, check out this YouTube video

This kind of raw video is really resonating with voters, but we can do so much better. We just need help to get there.

Previously, I never understood why politicians seemed to be fundraising all the time. I always figured that they should be spending their time in more productive ways, but now that I am immersed in this campaign I understand. In order to turn this country around, we have got to get our message out to the voters, and the only way that we can get our message out to the voters is if we have the resources to do it.

A lot of people out there don’t understand that we don’t just vote at the voting box. We vote with our dollars too, and right now Democrats and establishment Republicans are giving millions upon millions of dollars to their candidates for the 2018 elections.

If we are going to get back to the U.S. Constitution and restore our liberties and freedoms, we have got to fight fire with fire. We can’t sit back and wait for someone else to take action, because that is what way too many true conservatives have been doing for decades. The other side wants us to believe that it is hopeless and that we can never change the system. But I believe that we can make dramatic changes if we will just work together.

If every one of my readers donated just $10 to the campaign, we would raise more money than all of the other candidates combined and it would be virtually impossible for any of them to win.

Most of us don’t think twice about spending ten dollars at a fast food place for lunch, and so why wouldn’t we invest at least that much in saving the country?

This is our campaign, because we are all in this together. Everyone that has volunteered, donated or contributed in some other way is invested in this campaign, and we need more help. We are literally in a struggle for what the future of this country is going to look like for our children and our grandchildren, and if you would like to join our efforts you can do so right here…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

I am going to keep fighting for America as hard as I can every single day, and I am praying for more people to rally to our cause. If you haven’t already done so, please read over the following 22 points and prayerfully consider getting involved in our campaign…

#1 A Pro-Trump Christian Conservative – Michael is the most conservative candidate in this race, and he is proud to stand with President Trump.

Is this the kind of platform that you can get behind?

If so, please contribute to our efforts today…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

If I win, this is only going to be just the beginning. We have already been talking about a national effort to help true conservative candidates win races all around the country. It won’t be easy, but I believe that if we all work together that we can take our government back.

But first we need to win this election, and right now it is a totally wide open race. If you would like to help, here are three immediate ways that you can do so…

1. We need an army of fundraisers – We need people all across America to help us bring in resources for this campaign. Even if you just want to help with mailings, we can get you started right away. Just contact us on our volunteer page and we will guide you through exactly what needs to be done.

2. We need an army of “social media warriors” – Social media is a key battleground for this campaign, and we need a whole host of people from all over the nation to get involved. If you only have a small amount of time, you can greatly help us by liking, sharing and commenting on the material on our official Facebook campaign page on a daily basis. Beyond that, there is so much to be done, and if you want to get involved please contact us.

3. We need more financial contributors – Democrats tend to recruit volunteers easily because many of their supporters tend to have a lot of “free time” on their hands. But conservatives are usually hard at work trying to make a living, and so many of our supporters simply don’t have that much time to put into political campaigns. If you can’t volunteer, you can still be a huge part of what we are doing by becoming a donor

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

I want to thank everyone out there that has already been praying, volunteering and contributing. This is a total team effort, and I am so thankful that this campaign has brought us all together.

We now have less than 6 months to go before election day on May 15th, and it is going to be a mad sprint to the finish line. If everybody gets involved, there is no way that we can lose, and so I am asking for your help today.

In Liberty,

Michael Snyder

6 Months To Go Until Election Day, And I Am Praying For Some Help

I need your help if I am going to overcome the vicious attacks that are coming from the left and win on May 15th. I know that most people are focused on preparing for the upcoming holidays this time of the year, but for this campaign crunch time has officially arrived. Idaho’s first congressional district is extremely conservative, and so whoever wins the Republican primary next May is almost certainly going to be the next member of Congress. Since Raul Labrador is running for governor, there is no incumbent in this race, and that means that it is totally wide open. The numbers are telling us that we have a very clear path to victory, but the only way that we will be able to emerge victorious is if we have enough resources to finish the race. This month we were running so low that we actually had to cut back on some of the things that we were planning to do. If this continues, we won’t be able to get our message out as effectively as we need to and another candidate could try to pull an upset victory by simply outspending us. I am praying for some help, and if every one of my readers were to make just a small donation today we would have everything that we need for the rest of the campaign by tomorrow

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

We launched this campaign on July 4th, and it is literally a miracle how far we have come in such little time. Many of the most prominent conservatives in the entire state have gotten involved, people all over the district are buzzing about how well we are doing, and we won the most recent online poll.

But we are rapidly outgrowing our limited resources.

Earlier today I got some great news over the telephone. We have the opportunity to put up a whole bunch of 4×8 signs in south Idaho, and each of those signs will be seen thousands of times a day.

But in order to do that, we have got to print up more 4×8 signs, and they are expensive. And more 4×8 signs are not even on the list of extremely pressing campaign needs that we are currently raising money for.

In faith, I believe that we are going to put up all of those signs, and I am asking for your help to get that done

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Did you happen to see what happened on Tuesday? Republican candidates got killed all over the nation. It was a major league wake up call, because we are in the midst of a battle for the future of this country, and right now the Democrats have all of the momentum.

If the Democrats take back control of both the Senate and the House in 2018, they are going to try to impeach Donald Trump. And even if establishment Republicans remain marginally in control, they may try to remove Trump anyway because many establishment Republicans would jump at the chance to betray our president.

The 2018 mid-term elections are a golden opportunity for us to elect pro-Trump candidates all over the nation. There are several dozen running, but we are only going to win if you all get behind us. If pro-Trump candidates don’t win the Republican primaries that will start happening in just a few months, there won’t be anyone good to vote for in November 2018, and the mid-term elections will be lost before they even happen.

This is such a critical moment in our history, and I am asking you to support those that are sacrificing incredible amounts of time, effort, money and energy in order to run. Please support my campaign, because we very much need a financial miracle right now

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

We are also working on new language for our brochure, and we have come up with a list of 22 reasons why people should support our campaign. Look this list over and then let me know any changes that you would make…

#1 A Pro-Trump Christian Conservative – Michael is the most conservative candidate in this race, and he is proud to stand with President Trump.

#2 It’s Time To Drain The Swamp – The same rules that apply to the rest of us should also apply to Congress, and Michael will actively fight corruption on every front.

#3 Every RINO Must Go – Way too many Republicans have been fighting Trump’s agenda and acting like Democrats. It is time to hold them accountable, and that means every ‘Republican in name only’ needs to go.

#4 100% Pro-Life – No money for Planned Parenthood ever. Nearly 60 million babies have been murdered since 1973, and Michael is making an unbreakable pledge to vote against any bill that funds Planned Parenthood 100% of the time.

#5 100% Pro-Gun – The Constitution says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Michael believes that every American has a constitutional right to carry a gun, and he will never back down from defending the Second Amendment even a single inch.

#9 Local Control Of Education – It is time to get the federal government out of the education business. Michael wants to abolish Common Core and the Department of Education, and he wants control over education to be as close to the local level as possible.

#10 Shut Down Big Brother Spying – Government agencies have been conducting unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens for decades, and that needs to stop now.

#11 True Limited Government – President Trump has proposed shutting down more than 60 different government programs and agencies. That would be a good start. Instead of asking which government agencies we should close, we should be asking which government agencies really need to remain open.

#12 100% Repeal Of Obamacare – Rapidly rising health insurance premiums are financially crippling Idaho families. Republicans in Congress have fumbled the ball, and we must repeal Obamacare immediately.

#13 Build The Wall – We need to make sure that everyone comes into this country through the front door. We must end illegal immigration, and so Michael supports President Trump’s call to build a wall on the southern border.

#14 Supporting Our Veterans – Michael’s father is a vet, and Michael will work passionately to make sure that our veterans receive the respect, care and support that they deserve.

#15 Fighting Islamic Terror – Michael fully supports the fight against ISIS, and he will push for legislation that would give local communities all over America the option to say no to refugees from terrorist hotbeds.

#16 Stopping Reckless Government Spending – We are 20 trillion dollars in debt and we continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from future generations every single hour of every single day.

#17 Bringing Jobs Back To America – The U.S. has lost more than 70,000 factories since China joined the WTO in 2001. Our formerly great manufacturing cities now look like war zones, and we desperately need to start making things in this country once again.

#18 Resisting The Globalists – We must strongly fight all attempts by the globalists to erode American sovereignty.

#19 Supporting States Rights – It is almost as if the 10th Amendment doesn’t even exist today. If Michael is elected, this is what his message to the feds will be: ‘Hand over the keys and get out of Idaho’.

#20 Removing The Wolves – Under Bill Clinton, Canadian gray wolves were brought to Idaho. These wolves travel in packs and are killing machines. Michael is 100% committed to removing these wolves from our state.

#21 Holding Judges Accountable – Federal judges that disregard the U.S. Constitution and that choose to legislate from the bench should be subject to impeachment.

#22 An Unashamed Christian – Michael is not ashamed to say that he is a Bible-believing Christian, and if we truly want to make America great again we need to return to the values and principles that this nation was founded upon.

This message is resonating with voters wherever we go, and people all over the district are eagerly asking us to hold more campaign events, but in order to do that we have got to have more funding.

In this campaign we have seen little miracle after little miracle, and now we need another one. I am praying for help, and I am asking you to prayerfully consider making a contribution today

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

If you live in Idaho, please let us know that you would like to have a bumper sticker and we’ll get one mailed out to you. And please don’t forget to let us know what you think of the 22 points that we are working on for the next round of brochures.

Of course what we need more than anything is prayer. Please pray for me, Meranda, Atarah, everyone else involved in this campaign and for all of our families. This has truly been a grueling process, and the final six months until election day are going to be absolutely crazy. We are going to need more grace and strength than ever before, because it won’t be easy, but with God all things are possible.

The Republican Party Just Got A Major League Wake Up Call

Tuesday night was a major shock for millions of Republicans, but it shouldn’t have been. I have been warning for months that Democrats were raising lots of money and had more energy and enthusiasm on their side, and it showed. From coast to coast Republicans got trounced, and if we don’t get our act together we are going to get killed in the 2018 mid-term elections. Last November, we witnessed the greatest miracle in the history of U.S. politics, and afterwards millions of conservatives promptly went to sleep. That was a tragic mistake, because we are literally in a battle for the future of America, and at the moment the Democrats have the momentum.

Earlier today, USA Today published a pretty good summary of the carnage that we saw…

Democrats won the governor’s mansions in Virginia and New Jersey. They also flipped a massive number of seats in the Virginia House of Delegates, and Maine voted to expand Medicaid. And voters elected a slew of women and minorities along with several transgender candidates to government offices around the nation.

“The Democratic Party is back,” Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez announced on a call with reporters Wednesday morning. “We’re taking our country back from Donald Trump one election at a time.”

Once upon a time, Virginia was considered a “purple state”, and leading into the election on Tuesday the GOP had a huge edge in the House of Delegates. But now UVA’s Larry Sabato says that it looks like the Democrats may have flipped enough seats to be in control…

Sabato said the high turnout in an off-year, the clear margins of victory and the sheer volume of seats that flipped in the House of Delegates all while rain poured down in Virginia could not be ignored. Voters “were determined to send Trump a message.” Republicans went into Tuesday with a 66-34 advantage in the House of Delegates; by the end of the night, Democrats controlled 48 seats, Republicans 47 and the rest were still undecided.

Do you want to see headlines next November about how the Democrats have taken control of the U.S. Senate or the House of Representatives?

If not, we need to get to work. There are pro-Trump candidates all over the nation that need volunteers, donations and media exposure. If you don’t want the left to run this country, then we are going to have to fight with everything that we have got.

At this point, Democratic leaders can already smell victory. Just consider what Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer are saying

Democratic leaders in Congress said Tuesday’s massive victories for their party were a rejection of President Trump and predicted a wave election next year that could even switch control of the U.S. House.

“The door is certainly open for us,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, told reporters as she took stock of Democratic wins at the top in New Jersey and Virginia, and in down-ballot races across the country.

Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said he was reminded of 2005, when Democrats won races in both states, which he said presaged the 2006 mid-term elections that cost the GOP control of both houses of Congress.

And they aren’t the only ones. Mainstream political analysts are also anticipating a victory for Democrats next year. For example, this is what Dave Wasserman said to USA Today about last night’s results…

“It’s hard to look at last night and conclude that Democrats are anything other than the narrow favorites for control of the House next year. The results could unleash more Republican retirements and it could spur Democratic recruitment,” Dave Wasserman, House editor for the nonpartisan Cook Political Report, told USA TODAY. Nearly three dozen Republicans have have left Congress or announced they plan to retire or seek another position at the end of their term. Just about a half-dozen Democrats have said they won’t seek re-election.

In my new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”, I lay out a blueprint for how Republicans should approach 2018. We need to embrace the platform that Donald Trump ran on, because it was a platform that resonated with working class people all over the country.

There will be Republican primaries all over the nation next spring, and that is our opportunity to get pro-Trump candidates on to the ballot next November. There is no time to waste if we want to win.

Because if we sit back and watch the Democrats work harder, raise more money and be more organized, they will absolutely kill us next November and we won’t have anyone to blame but ourselves.

One Year Ago A Miracle Happened

On November 8th, 2016 we witnessed the greatest miracle in the history of American politics. Leading up to election day, virtually all of the experts were boldly assuring us that Hillary Clinton would be the next president of the United States. Personally, I was quite alarmed about what a Hillary Clinton presidency would mean, because Clinton’s vindictiveness is legendary and my anti-Clinton articles had been seen by millions of people. When Trump shocked the world by winning the election, it was like an entirely new day had just dawned in America. If Donald Trump could become president of the United States, literally anything was possible.

President Trump has been visiting Asia this week, but on Wednesday he took a few moments to thank those that voted for him last November…

President Trump marked the anniversary of his 2016 presidential election win by remembering the “deplorables.”

“Congratulations to all of the ‘DEPLORABLES’ and the millions of people who gave us a MASSIVE (304-227) Electoral College landslide victory!” he tweeted Wednesday, featuring a photo of him and some of his aides aboard Air Force Once.

It has been 12 months, but it is still hard to grasp what happened on that historic night. Nobody in the mainstream media seemed to believe that Trump had a chance, and his shock victory took almost the entire nation by surprise. The following is an extended excerpt from an article that I published on the day after Trump’s victory entitled “Do You Believe In Miracles?”

—–

After it was all over, I kind of stumbled around my home lost in my thoughts. I was happy, confused, hopeful, stunned and pensive all at the same time. Like so many others, what I thought I knew about politics turned out to be wrong. But in other ways, the election of Donald Trump has confirmed so much of what I know to be right about America.

Ultimately, it was the American people that decided this election, because the elite were doing their best to absolutely bury him.

Never before has the mainstream media been so openly biased against a major party presidential candidate. For months on end they dumped sewage on Trump, but it didn’t work.

Never before has a major party presidential candidate faced a civil war in his own party on the eve of the election. A whole host of big names in the Republican Party publicly announced that they would not vote for Trump, but it didn’t work.

Never before have we seen a bigger October surprise than the lewd tape from 11 year ago that came out and shocked the world. That would have instantly killed the campaign of any normal politician, but it didn’t kill Trump’s campaign.

From the very beginning it seemed like Trump was at war with almost everyone, and somehow he came out on top in the end.

He beat the Bushes and the Clintons.

He beat the Republicans and the Democrats.

He beat Hollywood and the mainstream media.

He beat the pollsters and the pundits.

He beat the never-Trumpers and the billionaire donors.

He beat Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Jay Z, Beyonce, George Clooney, Matt Damon and Lebron James.

He beat the forces of globalism, elitism and political correctness.

He beat CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and Barack Obama.

He beat them all.

—–

Millions of us that had worked so hard to get Trump elected were absolutely jubilant, but of course there were millions of others that were bitterly disappointed. If you want to take a walk down memory lane, watch this YouTube video that shows a whole host of liberal talking heads melting down in the aftermath of Trump’s win. They also knew that something had just fundamentally changed in America, and they were not happy about it at all.

Sadly, many Republican politicians have still not embraced Trump, and that is a huge mistake.

For example, many believe that Ed Gillespie’s huge loss in Virginia happened because he distanced himself from the president

“Republican Swamp Thing Gillespie Rejected,” Bannon’s Breitbart News declared in a headline.

Gillespie “did not embrace me or what I stand for,” Trump tweeted from Asia.

The rush to destroy Gillespie — who borrowed some tactics from Trump but kept his distance from the president — points to an escalating fight within the party over whether candidates are better off courting Trump and his loyal base or keeping them at arm’s length.

As for me, I am proud to stand with President Trump, and pro-Trump voters all over the nation are getting involved in my campaign for Congress.

Of course Democrats are hoping that the Trump era will be over as soon as possible and that things will then go back to normal.

But that isn’t going to happen. We are here to take our country back, and the Trump movement is only just getting started.

How Many Mass Shooters Have Been Members Of The NRA?

The left is using the tragedy in Sutherland Springs to demonize the NRA. Personally, I am so sick and tired of these relentless attacks, and I am proud to stand with the NRA, the Gun Owners Of America and every other organization that is working hard to defend our 2nd Amendment rights. As you will see below, it was actually the intervention of an NRA instructor named Stephen Willeford that saved countless lives in Sutherland Springs. And would you like to know how many mass shooters have been members of the NRA? The answer is zero

Based on the arbitrary definition of a shooting involving at least four deaths, there had been 130 mass shootings in the United States as of June 6, 2017, going back over the last 51 years. (This does not include gang killings, killings that began as other crimes such as robberies, and killings that involved only the shooter’s family.)

Information about how the guns were obtained is incomplete, but 248 different guns were used, at least 141 of which were obtained legally and at least 39 of which were obtained illegally; handguns were the most common weapons used, usually more than one, each of which takes about two seconds to reload, making limited magazines (commonly incorrectly referred to as “clips”) a minor inconvenience. None of the shooters were known to be members of the NRA.

The bad guys in our society are always going to find ways to get guns. Just look at what is happening down in Honduras for example. They have some of the strictest gun laws on the entire planet, and yet their entire nation has become a war zone.

Some say that we have a “mental illness problem”, but I would describe it as a moral and social decay problem. Culture really matters, and our culture has been going down the toilet for decades. If we don’t do something about the rampant decay in our society, violence is going to continue to get worse.

And as violence continues to escalate, I want as many responsibly armed citizens around as possible. Instead of vilifying the NRA, we should be thankful that men like Stephen Willeford are willing to act like heroes

So much for those who want to vilify the NRA in the wake of the Texas massacre in Sutherland Springs, Texas, on Sunday: Stephen Willeford, the man who shot and chased the man who killed 26 people in a Texas church, is an NRA instructor. Willeford insisted, “I’m no hero; I am not. I think my God, my Lord, protected me and gave me the skills to do what needed to be done.”

It is a fact that most mass shooters tend to be to the left on the political spectrum, and most of those that have attempted to attacks presidents throughout history have also been on the left. Just check out this list

  1. Andrew Jackson – shot at by Richard Lawrence (Suspected Democrat plot, no proof.)
  2. Abraham Lincoln – 3 attempts – Democrats, Baltimore, 1861; Democrat confederates, Aug, 1864, Shot at from ambush; shot dead by J.W. Booth, Democrat, April, 1865
  3. James A. Garfield – shot and killed by Charles J. Guiteau, utopian communalist. (Modern progressive.)
  4. William McKinley – shot and killed by Leon Czolgosz, Far left Socialist
  5. Theodore Roosevelt – shot, wounded, by John F. Schrank, Anti third term motive.
  6. Franklin D. Roosevelt – Shot at by Giuseppi Zangara, Marxist, (He missed and killed Chicago Mayor Anton Cermak.)
  7. Harry S. Truman – attacked by Oscar Collazo, Griselio Torreslo, Leftist revolutionaries who wanted a Socialist Puerto Rico.
  8. John F. Kennedy – shot and killed by Lee H. Oswald, Communist.
  9. Richard Nixon – Samuel Byck thought Nixon was oppressing the poor, attempted airplane hijack to crash into White House.
  10. Gerald Ford – Lynette Fromme, Anarchist, Manson girl, waved gun, failed to properly load it; Sara Brady, shot at the president, progressive Socialist, lousy shot.

I have pledged to never move a single inch when it comes to defending our 2nd Amendment rights, and I am asking all of my supporters to stand with me. The left is making gun control one of their highest priorities, and we must never, ever back down.

I really like how Charlie Daniels made this point in his latest column

Opportunistic politicians rush to judgement to write meaningless laws that would further muddy the waters, and leftist ideologues who don’t know a .22 from a .357 condemn all guns and gun owners, wanting to outlaw all firearms, leaving the villains who obtain their guns illegally to continue the mayhem while ordinary citizens would be left with no way to protect their families.

The same people who self-righteously insist on having sanctuary cities for lawbreakers are the ones who scream the loudest for more gun control, completely ignoring their potential for harboring murderers in their midst.

We need thousands more leaders like Charlie Daniels all over the nation.

And we need millions more responsible gun owners such as Stephen Willeford to help protect us from the crazed lunatics like Devin Patrick Kelley that seem to be multiplying in our society.

The NRA and the Gun Owners of America are not the problem.

The truth is that they are a big part of the solution, and those attacking them should be ashamed of themselves.

That’s It? That Is All That Mueller Can Come Up With? Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton’s Scandals Are Being Ignored…

If this is all that Robert Mueller can come up with, he has just wasted enormous amounts of time and money. On Monday, Paul Manafort and his former business partner Richard Gates were charged with tax evasion, money laundering and being “unregistered agents of the government of Ukraine”. These charges have nothing to do with Trump’s campaign, and the Trump campaign is not actually mentioned in the indictment at all. Previously, I explained that once a special counsel is appointed, someone is going to end up getting indicted. Somebody must be charged with something, because a special counsel always feels the need to justify all of the time, money and energy that has been expended. But if this is all that Mueller can come up with, that is pretty pathetic.

In case you haven’t seen the news yet, the following is a brief summary of what Manafort and Gates are being charged with…

Manafort and his former business associate Richard W. Gates III acted as “unregistered agents of the government of Ukraine, the indictment says.

“In order to hide Ukraine payments from United States authorities, from approximately 2006 through at least 2016, Manafort and Gates laundered the money through scores of United States and foreign corporations, partnerships and bank accounts.”

They’re also accused of tax evasion and making “false and misleading statements” to federal investigators.

No special counsel was needed for this. If Manafort and Gates evaded taxes and laundered money, those are issues that could be dealt with through normal law enforcement channels.

In the end, this has nothing to do with Trump’s campaign, and it is more evidence that this is simply a politically-motivated witch hunt.

On Monday we also learned that Trump’s former foreign policy adviser had been “secretly arrested” back in July…

A former Donald Trump campaign adviser was secretly arrested in July and has pleaded guilty to charges of lying to the FBI about contacts with Russia during the 2016 campaign, according to court documents unsealed by special counsel Robert Mueller on Monday.

The former Trump foreign policy adviser, George Papadopoulos, admitted to making “numerous” false statements to the FBI about his repeated efforts to arrange an “off the record” meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russian President Vladimir Putin’s office. He is now cooperating with Mueller’s investigation, according to the unsealed court records.

This is potentially more serious, but once again, there is nothing here that would indicate that President Trump was involved in any wrongdoing whatsoever.

Understandably, President Trump’s response to these developments was quite pointed

Shortly before 10:30 a.m. on Monday, Trump tweeted:

“Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign. But why aren’t Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus?????”

“….Also, there is NO COLLUSION!,” the president tweeted moments later.

And the timing of all of this is quite odd.

Just when the Uranium One scandal is seriously heating up, all of a sudden Mueller comes out with indictments?

I am not the only one that thinks this is strange. The following comes from Natural News

But this is all a deliberate distraction from the exploding Uranium One and Fusion GPS scandals, both of which are ensnaring not just Hillary Clinton but also James Comey and even Robert Mueller himself, who was head of the FBI when Clinton rubber stamped the selling of U.S. uranium supplies to Russia.

Over the last few days, for example, the US DOJ has granted approval for an FBI informant with detailed knowledge of the Clinton / Comey criminality to testify before the U.S. Senate. That testimony will be on the record in a few weeks, and it will result in criminal indictments against Obama era officials and Clinton cohorts who have been running a massive collusion cartel for at least the last eight years.

In the end, I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see Mueller himself in some very hot water.

In case you are not familiar with the Uranium One scandal, the following is a pretty good summary from the Blaze

In 2010, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) voted to appropriate the sale of mining company Uranium One, to Russia’s nuclear agency, Rosatom, thus handing 20 percent of US uranium supply to Russia. Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on CFIUS when the committee unanimously approved the Uranium One deal. Information has recently surfaced showing that Russian officials routed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation prior to the the Uranium One deal.

And even potentially more serious is the fact that Hillary Clinton’s campaign helped fund the now infamous “Trump dossier” that included completely fabricated information.

The fact that the Clinton campaign attempted to hide their role in funding the dossier could get them into a massive amount of legal trouble.

But thanks to Mueller, for the moment the focus is on the special counsel investigation, and Judge Napolitano believes that Mueller is going to use these indictments to try to get someone to testify against Trump

“Bob Mueller is following the standard M.O. of federal prosecutors,” the judicial analyst continued. “You’ve got a totem pole, you’ve got somebody at the top of the totem pole, that’s your big prize: no surprise, it’s the president of the United States.”

“You’re going to indict people going up the totem pole to see if you can squeeze them. Threaten their ruination, by loss of liberty or loss of property to get them to turn evidence against the top guy.” Napolitano added.

In the end, it isn’t going to work.

There is absolutely no evidence that Trump did anything wrong, and Mueller should be ashamed of himself for dragging this thing out for so long.

Unfortunately, very few members of Congress are calling for this investigation to be shut down. When I am elected, that is something that I am going to do immediately. This investigation is a total witch hunt, and if you stand with President Trump I hope that you will send pro-Trump candidates like me to Washington.

Because if anti-Trump forces have their way, this investigation will go on indefinitely until they can find some possible way to impeach Trump following the 2018 mid-term elections. In fact, Senator Warner is saying that Mueller’s probe will almost certainly be “a complex and likely lengthy investigation” because of these new developments…

Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is also investigating Russia-Trump ties, called Monday’s developments in a statement “a significant and sobering step in what will be a complex and likely lengthy investigation by the Special Counsel. That is why it is imperative that Congress take action now to protect the independence of the Special Counsel, wherever or however high his investigation may lead.”

His office also said he wants bipartisan members of Congress to “make clear” to President Trump “that issuing pardons to any of his associates or to himself would be unacceptable, and result in immediate, bipartisan action by Congress.”

Of course the Democrats want this to go on forever, because they want to get rid of Trump by any means necessary.

In the end, there is only one outcome of this investigation that is acceptable.

It needs to be shut down, and it needs to be shut down immediately.

Shocking New Online Poll Shows That Michael Snyder’s Campaign For Congress Has A Ton Of Momentum

It is still very, very early, but we continue to get positive signs that all of the hard work that we have put into this campaign is getting the attention of the voters. Last week, the largest and most important political talk radio station in the entire state posted an online poll for our race, and we are winning. In fact, we have more votes than all of the other guys in the race combined. But let’s not get too excited. This is an entirely unscientific poll, and a scientific poll would show a much, much closer race. The truth is that most voters in this district still don’t even know who any of the candidates are, and that means that we have a ton of work ahead of us in this wide open race. In order to win, we need to effectively get our message out to all of these voters, and if you would like to help us do that, you can do so right here…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

I don’t want anyone to get overconfident because of the results of this online poll. In the end, it is just a test of enthusiasm. Just like all of the other campaigns, we encouraged our supporters to go vote, and the response was overwhelming. Everywhere I go, I have been telling people that we have more enthusiasm for our campaign than any of the other guys by a wide margin, and this online poll is just more evidence that this is true.

But enthusiasm alone won’t be enough to win this race. Online polls are never very accurate, and we understand that. Name recognition for every candidate in this race is still quite low, and so in order to win next May we are going to have to roll up our sleeves and get to work. The path to victory has never been clearer for our campaign than it is now, but it is going to take all of us. We had set a goal of $25,000 for the last week of September, but we didn’t meet that goal. But we did have our best week of fundraising that last week of September, and we ended up raising more money than my chief opponent Dave Leroy did last quarter. The good news is that none of my opponents have raised that much money yet either, but we don’t want them to race out ahead of us this quarter. If you would like to help put “fuel in the tank”, you can contribute right here…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

A few days ago we returned from our longest trip of the campaign so far, and so many incredible people all around the district are getting involved in our campaign. The demand for campaign materials continues to grow, and that means that we are starting to run low in a lot of areas. Here are some of the biggest categories of need at the moment…

#1 Brochures – We printed up 10,000 brochures, but now we are literally down to half a box. I will run through those very shortly, and so we need to print up another 10,000. Ultimately, somewhere around 800,000 people are living in this district, and we would love to get our message into as many of their hands as possible.

#2 Bumper Stickers – We printed up 1,000 bumper stickers, and I just gave away the last ones at our event in Garden Valley. We need to print up at least 2,000 more if we can, and we need them as soon as possible.

#3 Signs – The demand for signs has been crazy. Everywhere we go people are asking for signs, and we are doing our best to keep up. We need more yard signs, more two by four signs, and pretty soon we will need more four by eight signs.

#4 Shirts And Hats – We would like to make these widely available for our supporters, because they are great for spreading awareness about our campaign. Unfortunately, so far we have not had the resources to do that. We have been able to get a few shirts and hats to members of our core team, but we would like to get them in the hands of supporters all over the district.

#5 Mailers – One of the best ways to reach voters in this enormous district is through mailers. My opponents are going to spend thousands upon thousands of dollars on mailers, and if they do a better job of getting their message out to the voters we will be in trouble.

If you would like to help fund the resources that we desperately need for this campaign, you can do so here…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Just because we were victorious in one online poll does not mean that we are guaranteed to win this campaign.

Other polls are going to show different results, and scientific polls will show that the vast majority of voters are still completely undecided.

But if we all stand together, and if we work really hard to get our message out to everyone in this district, there is no way that the other guys are going to beat us.

Once again, please don’t let the KIDO online poll fool you. We very much encouraged our people to go vote, and that is really the point of these sorts of online polls. They are more a “test of enthusiasm” than anything else. But without a doubt we are taking this outcome as a positive sign, and in order to keep the momentum going we need your help…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Because there is no incumbent in this race, it is totally wide open, and the team that works the hardest is probably going to win.

So I am asking for your help, because there is no way in the world that I could ever do this by myself.

We need more volunteers, we need more donors, we need more people to put up signs, and we need more people to like, share and comment on the material on our official campaign Facebook page.

We are going to work harder than any of the other campaigns, and we are going to make every dollar stretch as far as humanly possible. I want to thank everyone that has volunteered and contributed so far, and I have been blown away by the extraordinary people that have reached out to us because they wanted to get involved in what we are doing.

We are on a mission to take our country back. So instead of spending another 50 dollars on Halloween candy, I would encourage you to consider contributing to the campaign instead. You can learn more about where we stand on the issues right here. We are literally fighting on behalf of our children and our grandchildren, and we are going to do all that we can to make sure that this remains the land of the free and the home of the brave.

In Liberty,

Michael Snyder

21 Reasons Why You Should Support Michael Snyder’s Run For Congress

We are starting to take our country back, and good men and women are rising up to run for office all over America. I want to be part of this movement, and so I am running for Congress in Idaho’s first congressional district. So how are things going so far? Well, a brand new online poll conducted by the largest political talk radio station in the state shows that there is a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for my campaign. People are sick and tired of the status quo in Washington, and the fact that I am not a professional politician is appealing to a lot of people. But it is still very early, and we need as many people to get involved and to contribute as possible. It is going to take a tremendous effort to win this race, but there is definitely a very clear path to victory if we work really hard.

If you are not very familiar with me yet, I would encourage you to listen to an interview that I just did with Matt Shea right here: http://bit.ly/2zAU32U

Matt is a true constitutional conservative, and he is doing an amazing job in the Washington state legislature.

Every single day our campaign is gaining momentum, and the buzz we have created all over the district is incredible. If you are still undecided, here are 21 reasons why you should support our campaign…

#1 A Pro-Trump Christian Conservative – Michael is the most conservative candidate in this race, and he is proud to stand with President Trump.

#2 It’s Time To Flush The Toilet – The same rules that apply to the rest of us should also apply to Congress, and Michael is determined to help drain the swamp.

#3 Every RINO Must Go – Way too many Republicans have been fighting Trump’s agenda and acting like Democrats. It is time to hold them accountable, and that means every ‘Republican in name only’ needs to go.

#4 100% Pro-Life – No money for Planned Parenthood ever. Nearly 60 million babies have been murdered since 1973, and Michael is making an unbreakable pledge to vote against any bill that funds Planned Parenthood 100% of the time.

#5 100% Pro-Gun – The Constitution says that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Michael believes that every American has a constitutional right to carry a gun, and he will never back down from defending the Second Amendment even a single inch.

#6 Abolish The IRS & The Income Tax – We didn’t have an income tax from 1872 to 1913, and that was the greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history. As we fight a long-term battle to abolish the income tax, in the short-term we can at least go to a flat tax or a fair tax, both of which would be far superior to what we have now.

#7 Abolish The Federal Reserve – Since the Fed was created in 1913, we have had 18 recessions, the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by about 98 percent, and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 6000 times larger. Abolishing this debt-based system is one of the keys to a bright economic future for America.

#8 Getting Federal Bureaucrats Off Our Backs – Michael will work to get the federal government off of the backs of our farmers, our loggers, our miners, our ranchers and our small business owners.

#9 Local Control Of Education – It is time to get the federal government out of the education business. Michael wants to abolish Common Core and the Department of Education, and he wants control over education to be as close to the local level as possible.

#10 Shut Down Big Brother Spying – Government agencies have been conducting unconstitutional surveillance of American citizens for decades, and that needs to stop now.

#11 True Limited Government – President Trump has proposed shutting down more than 60 different government programs and agencies. That would be a good start. Instead of asking which government agencies we should close, we should be asking which government agencies really need to remain open.

#12 100% Repeal Of Obamacare – Rapidly rising health insurance premiums are financially crippling Idaho families. Republicans in Congress have fumbled the ball, and we must repeal Obamacare immediately.

#13 Build The Wall – We need to make sure that everyone comes into this country through the front door. We must end illegal immigration, and so Michael supports President Trump’s call to build a wall on the southern border.

#14 Supporting Our Veterans – Michael’s father is a vet, and Michael will work passionately to make sure that our veterans receive the respect, care and support that they deserve.

#14 Fighting Islamic Terror – Michael fully supports the fight against ISIS, and he will push for legislation that would give local communities all over America the option to say no to refugees from terrorist hotbeds.

#15 Stopping Reckless Government Spending – We are 20 trillion dollars in debt and we continue to steal more than 100 million dollars from future generations every single hour of every single day.

#16 Bringing Jobs Back To America – The U.S. has lost more than 70,000 factories since China joined the WTO in 2001. Our formerly great manufacturing cities now look like war zones, and we desperately need to start making things in this country once again.

#17 Resisting The Globalists – We must strongly fight all attempts by the globalists to erode American sovereignty.

#18 Supporting States Rights – It is almost as if the 10th Amendment doesn’t even exist today. If Michael is elected, this is what his message to the feds will be: ‘Hand over the keys and get out of Idaho’.

#19 Removing The Wolves – Under Bill Clinton, Canadian gray wolves were brought to Idaho. These wolves travel in packs and are killing machines. Michael is 100% committed to removing these wolves from our state.

#20 Holding Judges Accountable – Federal judges that disregard the U.S. Constitution and that choose to legislate from the bench should be subject to impeachment.

#21 An Unashamed Christian – Michael is not ashamed to say that he is a Bible-believing Christian, and if we truly want to make America great again we need to return to the values and principles that this nation was founded upon.

If you would like to get involved, there are many ways to do so. We need more volunteers, more contributors and more people sharing the material that we post on our official campaign Facebook page.

We are just a small part of a national movement that is beginning to emerge. It began with Donald Trump’s victory back in November, and it has continued in states such as Alabama where Roy Moore won even though the establishment spent 30 million dollars against him.

We are going to win here in Idaho too, and if you would like to learn more please visit MichaelSnyderForCongress.com.

How The Elite Dominate The World – Part 4: They Buy Politicians, And Incumbents Almost Always Win

Once we wake up to how the game is being played, then we will have a real shot at changing things. For decades, the elite have been pulling the strings behind the scenes in both major political parties. That is why nothing has ever seemed to change very much no matter which party has been in power. The agenda of the elite has always seemed to march forward, and ordinary people like us have always been frustrated that we can’t seem to make a difference. But now a shift seems to be taking place. Donald Trump took on the establishment in both major parties, and he miraculously won the presidency. Down in Alabama, the elite spent more than 30 million dollars to defeat Roy Moore, and he still defeated Luther Strange. A political awakening is taking place, and I can’t wait to see what happens during the mid-term elections in 2018.

In Part I and Part II of this series, I talked about how the elite use debt as a tool of enslavement. In Part III, I went over how the elite use the colossal media corporations they own to control what we think. Today, I want to talk about their influence in the realm of politics.

In Washington D.C., it is well understood that the game of politics is all about the money. If I win my election, and online polling suggests that there is a ton of enthusiasm for my campaign, I will be expected to spend most of my time on the phone raising money. As a freshman member of Congress, at orientation it will be explained to me that I am supposed to spend approximately four hours a day doing fundraising, and that is why the House and Senate floors are so empty most of the time.

By law, members of Congress cannot make fundraising calls from their offices, and so both parties have huge call centers just across from the Capitol. Especially around lunch and dinner times (because those are some of the best times to reach people), those call centers are packed as members of the House and Senate run through lists of potential donors.

And it isn’t just about raising money for their own campaigns. As a freshman member of Congress I would be expected to raise at least $200,000 for the NRCC (the National Republican Congressional Committee). If I don’t pay my dues, I would get into big trouble with party leadership.

But you know what? I have already pledged that I am not going to participate in this very corrupt system. If I am sent to Congress, I am going to spend my time doing the job that the people of Idaho sent me there to do.

So will Paul Ryan and the others in leadership get very upset with me for not “paying my dues”?

Of course.

But it is time for some of us to take a stand and do what is right. Congress has become a cesspool of filth and corruption, and it is time to flush the toilet.

Because if we don’t fight this corrupt system, the influence of money in politics will just get worse and worse. Today, the elite pour millions upon millions of dollars even into small campaigns, and in 2016 it took an average of more than 10 million dollars to win a U.S. Senate seat

While the White House may not have gone to the biggest spender, an awful lot of House and Senate seats did — as usual. And it was pricier than ever to win them.

This election cycle, an average winning Senate candidate had spent $10.4 million through Oct. 19 (reflecting the latest reports filed with the Federal Election Commission). That’s a $1.8 million increase over the same period in the 2014 cycle. By the end of last cycle, the number rose to $10.6 million, and a similar uptick is expected this time once post-election and year-end reports are filed.

Once you win, the pressure to raise money for your next campaign never ends.

The elite know this, and they use this pressure to influence votes. Prior to a big vote, lobbyists will make it abundantly clear how they want certain members of Congress to vote, and if they vote the “right way” those members of Congress will be rewarded.

Just across from the U.S. Capitol there are clubs where fancy receptions are regularly held. If you vote the “right way” on a particular bill, you may be invited to one of these receptions, and there will be big, fat donation checks waiting there for you.

Of course most members of Congress have learned how to play the game, and this is why it is nearly impossible to defeat incumbents. Over the past six decades, the re-election rate for members of the House of Representatives has consistently been well over 80 percent, and according to the UVA Center for Politics incumbents actually did far better than that in 2016…

This election cycle, 393 of 435 House representatives, 29 of 34 senators, and five of 12 governors sought reelection (several of the governors were prohibited from seeking another term). Of those, 380 of 393 House members (97%), 27 of 29 senators (93%), and four of five governors (80%) won another term. These members of Congress and governors not only won renomination, but also won in November.

Since World War II, the overall success rate for Senate incumbents has been 84 percent, and the overall success rate for House incumbents has been 94 percent.

Incumbents are almost always armed with huge war chests and most of them have tremendous name recognition, and so toppling them is not easy.

Fortunately, there is no incumbent in my race because Raul Labrador is running for governor. So the race is completely wide open, and right now my campaign has the most enthusiasm by far. If you would like to help me flush the toilet in Washington, I would encourage you to visit MichaelSnyderForCongress.com.

If we don’t fight back, we will never break the stranglehold that the elite have on our political system.

Every generation of Americans has had to stand up and fight for liberty and freedom, and now it is our turn. This particular battle will not be fought with guns and bullets, but rather with ideas, values and principles.

We are part of a movement that is sweeping the nation. Good men and women are rising up to run in federal, state and local races all across the country, and it is absolutely imperative that we all get behind them and support them.

A ‘War’ Has Been Declared On The Republican Establishment, And We Are Going To Win

It is time to flush the toilet in Washington D.C., and I am so glad that Steve Bannon has decided to declare “war” on the Republican establishment. For decades, these globalists have told us what we want to hear during election season, but then once they take office they betray us over and over again. It is time to hold Republican members of Congress responsible for betraying the base, and I am so thankful that Bannon is organizing anti-establishment candidates into a cohesive movement. We are going to challenge Republican incumbents all over the nation in 2018, and we are going to win over and over again.

Just look at what happened in Alabama. The Republican establishment spent more than 30 million dollars against Roy Moore and we still won by a very wide margin.

Now we are going to take that template and repeat it all over the country. During an interview with Sean Hannity on Monday, Steve Bannon boldly declared that his forces are going after every Republican Senator that is up for re-election in 2018 except for Ted Cruz…

On Monday’s edition of Hannity, Breitbart executive chairman and former Trump adviser Steve Bannon talked about his plan to challenge every Republican Senator up for re-election in 2018 in the primary, except Sen. Ted Cruz. Bannon said Republican incumbents have committed “economic hate crimes” against the “forgotten man.”

Bannon said he is declaring “war” on the Republican establishment and those that don’t back what President Trump ran on. He said there is a “new game in town” and promised to “cut off the oxygen” to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and stop his fundraising for establishment candidates. Bannon said any person running for the Senate in 2018 that wants his support must oppose McConnell as the Republican Leader.

I love this approach. No matter how much the Trump administration tries to work with some of these globalists, the truth is that they are never, ever going to get on board with his agenda.

So the answer is voting them out, and that is going to take a lot of money and a lot of hard work. Fortunately, it sounds like Steve Bannon is ready for the battles that are ahead. Here is more from his interview with Sean Hannity

HANNITY: Is this a fair statement: Is Steve Bannon declaring war on the establishment that are not for the working men and women in this country?

BANNON: 100%. We are declaring war on the Republican establishment that does not back the agenda that Donald Trump ran on and the president of the United States, and that’s the agenda we know that backs the working men and women…

Karl Rove, Steven Law, these guys should get the joke. Their donors are coming to us because they are tired of having their money burned up by trying to destroy people like Judge Moore. It’s a new game in town. We are to cut off the oxygen to Mitch McConnell. Mitch McConnell’s biggest asset is the money. We’re going to make it the biggest liability. We’re going after these guys tooth and nail.

This is music to my ears, because my campaign has already been trying to promote anti-establishment candidates here in Idaho and around the nation. But obviously we need coordination at a national level, and Steve Bannon can do that.

And the environment is right for this kind of movement. The Republicans in Congress have an approval rating that is so small that you can barely see it with a microscope, and the base is sick and tired of these so-called “conservatives” governing like Democrats. The following comes from Rush Limbaugh

“Some people make an argument that there really isn’t a Republican Party left. I mean, there are people who call themselves that and they go out and raise money and they raise a lot,” he said. “But whereas the party used to be known for one, two, or three very serious things, they’re not anymore,” he said. “When the Republican Party joins the Democratic Party on things like amnesty for illegal immigrants — that’s not the Republican Party.”

Of course 2018 is just another stage in the war. In order to boot all of the globalists out, it is going to take an extended period of time. In fact, Steve Bannon says that he is ready to go to battle for the next twenty years

To take your country back – it’s not going to happen in any just one election. This is something you’re going to have to grind out day in and day out for the next five, ten, fifteen, twenty years.

It took us a long time to get here. There’s no magic wand we can wave and drain the swamp. There’s no magic wand we can wave and blow up this establishment. I hate to tell people, you’re going to have to work.

But you know what? The grit, determination and courage of the American working men and women – we are going to win.

If you are sick and tired of the Republicans in Congress getting nothing done, then I hope that you will join this fight.

Very few members of Congress are actively fighting for the things that the conservative base truly wants, and it is time to hold them accountable. Next spring, Republican primaries will be held all over the nation, and the truth is that only a small percentage of the population actually votes in primaries.

If we get active and get mobilized, we can fundamentally transform Republican politics in this country. If you live in Idaho, I would encourage you to get involved in my campaign, and if not I would encourage you to help the anti-establishment candidates in your particular state.

We are sick and tired of politics as usual, and the status quo is simply not good enough anymore.

Let me leave you with one final quote from Steve Bannon: “Nobody is safe. We are coming after all of them and we’re going to win.”

You Have Got To Watch This Video – The Corruption In Washington D.C. Is Off The Charts!

The video that you are about to watch shows exactly why we need to “drain the swamp”. In Washington D.C. it is all about the money, and those that don’t play by the rules get punished severely. But if we don’t start to fight back against this corruption, we will never have a chance to turn our nation in a positive direction. I want to go to Washington and start “flushing the toilet”, and I am asking for your help. I can’t do this alone, but if you help me get there, I promise to be your voice against the insidious corruption that has taken over our federal government.

In the video below, award-winning journalist Sharyl Attkisson interviews U.S. Representative Ken Buck. The following short bio for Buck comes from Wikipedia

Kenneth Robert Buck (born February 16, 1959) is an American politician who is the U.S. Representative for Colorado’s 4th congressional district. A Republican, he previously served as District Attorney for Weld County, Colorado. Buck was also the unsuccessful Republican challenger to Michael Bennet in the 2010 Senate race in Colorado.

During this brief video, Buck explains to Attkisson exactly how Washington works, and what he reveals is absolutely shocking

Like Buck, I want to fight against this system. If I win this election, I plan to go to D.C. and start turning over the tables. If you would like to help me in this crusade, you can contribute right here…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

As Buck discussed in the video, as a freshman member of Congress I would be expected to raise around $200,000 for the National Republican Congressional Committee. In other words, I would be expected to spend several hours a day calling back home to my district and begging my constituents to give money to the NRCC.

Well, I am simply not going to do it. I have pledged that I am not going to participate in this system, and I am the only one in this race that has made such a pledge. In fact, the other guys I am running against have already indicated that they intend to be very good members of “the club”. Needless to say, the “establishment” is not behind me, and so this is totally a grassroots effort. We are being funded by hundreds and hundreds of very small donations, and if you would like to pitch in, you can donate here…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

When I go to Washington, I am going to do the job that the people sent me there to do.

Sadly, most members of Congress do not actually spend that much time in their offices. The House of Representatives will only be in session for about 140 days this year, and even on those days not much work gets done. Both parties instruct their members to spend about two hours doing “floor/committee” work on those days, and they are instructed to spend about four hours a day “dialing for dollars”. Both parties have huge call centers near the U.S. capitol, and every day that Congress is in session you will find your “representatives” spending hour after hour in those call centers raising money for their parties or for their next campaigns.

When I go to Washington, I am not going to be a mid-level telemarketer, and so I have promised that I am not going to participate in this very sick system. If you are ready for a change, please help this campaign…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

And I am not going to “sell my vote” for campaign donations either. In the video, Ken Buck accurately detailed what really goes on behind closed doors, and it is a very, very twisted system.

If I am elected, I am not going to play the game. The special interests can wave as much money in front of me as they want, but I am not going to move. Instead of representing the special interests, our members of Congress should start representing the people once again.

You can read about where I stand on the issues right here. And if you all help me get to Washington, I want you to know that I am never going to back down. I am so sick and tired of politicians that use labels such as “conservative” and “pro-life” and “pro-gun” to get our votes, but then once they get into office they betray us over and over again.

It is time to get rid of all the RINOs. If someone runs under the Republican label but governs like a Democrat, we need to hold them accountable. One of my campaign slogans is “every RINO needs to go”, and if you agree with me I hope that you will stand with me in this campaign…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

I literally want to tear down the system that Representative Buck described in that video. If every member of Congress was like him, the corruption would already be cleaned up. That is why we need good men and women to run for Congress all over the nation.

There is a reason why Congress consistently has an approval rating of less than 20 percent. It is a cesspool of filth and corruption, and we need to send people to D.C. that are not going to be seduced by the money, fame and power. Here in Idaho, I have been criticized for not being a “professional politician”, but I am very proud of that fact. I never want to be part of the “establishment”. Instead, I want to topple the establishment and restore the constitutional republic that our founders originally intended.

There is no incumbent in this race here in Idaho’s first congressional district, and so the race is totally wide open. So far our campaign is doing extremely well, but we are also running a bit low on fuel. If you would like to help us keep going, I would like to ask for your help today…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Because this is considered to be a very “safe” district for Republicans, whoever wins the Republican primary next May will almost certainly be the next member of Congress.

And if the wrong guy wins this race, he could be in there for the next 20 years.

We cannot allow that to happen, and with your help I can win this election and start cleaning up the cesspool that Washington D.C. has become.

The Biggest Deadline For Our Campaign So Far Is In 7 Days, And I Am Praying For A $25,000 Miracle

I really need your help. As most of you already know, I am running for Congress in Idaho’s first congressional district, and because there is no incumbent the race is totally wide open. I announced that I was running on July 4th, and so September 30th is my very first FEC quarterly reporting deadline. All over the country, prominent Republican donors and key conservative organizations will be judging the strength of my campaign based on how much money I raise this quarter. If I don’t raise enough, I risk losing national support that I otherwise could have received. And even though hundreds of people have been donating from all over the country, we are lagging behind where we need to be, and so I am praying for a $25,000 miracle over the next seven days. If you would like to help this miracle become a reality, you can contribute at this link…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Over the next week, I will be meeting with some of the most influential conservatives in the entire state of Idaho. I will post new articles when I can, but because my schedule is going to be absolutely packed this week it will be tough to get something new posted every day.

As I travel around the state and meet with top conservatives, there are certain points that virtually everyone agrees upon…

-I am the most conservative candidate in this race by a wide margin.

-I have the best message of any of the candidates, and it isn’t even close.

-My team is extremely effective at getting my message to the voters.

-If we can get that message out to every voter in this district the way that we need to, we will win this election.

-The major thing that could keep us from winning the election is a lack of resources.

Because we have the best message, we don’t have to raise more money than the other guys.

But we do have to be at least on the same playing field, and you can help us do that by donating here…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

We have been bringing in lots and lots of small donations, but it takes a huge pile of those small donations to keep up with the enormous checks that the professional politicians in this race have been pulling in.

They may not have as many donors as I do, but when wealthy individuals are writing $2700 checks to them it adds up fast.

$2700 just happens to be the max donation that an individual can make to a candidate per campaign cycle, and even though we have had hundreds of large donors to the campaign, we haven’t had anyone donate at that level yet. If you would like to be the first, you can do so here…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Since there is no incumbent, we have a golden opportunity to send a true conservative to Congress. If you are not familiar with my campaign yet, here are some of the things that make me different from the career politicians…

-I am openly calling for all of the RINOs (Republicans in name only) to be voted out.

-I have made an unbreakable pledge to vote against any bill that contains even a single penny of funding for Planned Parenthood.

-I want to abolish the income tax, the IRS and the Federal Reserve.

-I want to repeal the major federal gun laws that are unconstitutionally restricting our 2nd Amendment rights.

-I want to build the wall and do all that I can to stop illegal immigration.

-I want to abolish the Department of Education and return control of education to the local level.

-I would fight like mad to stop the reckless borrowing which has put us 20 trillion dollars in debt.

-I would fight for a 100% repeal of Obamacare and to restore free market principles to our healthcare system.

-I want to clean up the corruption in Washington, institute term limits, and make our Congress critters live by the same rules that apply to everyone else.

-And I am unashamed to say that I am running on a pro-liberty platform and that I want to restore the constitutional Republic that our forefathers fought and died to establish.

You can read much more about my issue positions right here, and if you believe in what we are trying to do, I would like to ask for your support for our campaign…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

Thanks to you all, we have the best looking brochures of anyone running for any public office in the entire state, our signs are starting to go up along the major roads, and our videos have already been viewed by thousands upon thousands of voters.

We are beating the other candidates to the punch in just about every area that you can imagine, but without sufficient resources we will be greatly limited in what we are able to do moving forward.

What happens over the next seven days is going to go a long way toward determining who wins this race. My opponents are making a huge push for donations as well, because they are facing the same critical deadline that I am facing. Most people don’t realize that we don’t just influence the outcome of elections at the ballot box. We also vote with our dollars, and I very much need all of you to stand with me right now…

https://www.michaelsnyderforcongress.com/contribute.html

As I have said before, if every single one of my readers donated just $10 today, we could be done funding our campaign tomorrow.

Every single dollar makes such an enormous difference, and if you were ever going to stand with us, now is the time. This September 30th deadline is a make or break moment for our campaign, and we really need to find a way to raise at least $25,000 over the next seven days.

I believe that it is possible, and I am asking for your help. If a thousand of you stepped forward and donated just $25 to the campaign, we would be able to meet our goal.

I would like to thank everyone that has joined the campaign so far. More volunteers, donors and social media warriors are stepping forward on a daily basis, and we would have never been able to come so far in such a short period of time without your help.

Now this campaign is getting ready to go to the next stage, and so we need more of you to step forward and join the team.

On my own, I could never do this, but if we stand united and work together we are going to absolutely shock the world.
