Are you Prepared?

If You Stand With Trump, Please Support #TeamTrump Candidates For Congress August 13, 2017

Do you stand with President Trump? If so, I would like to ask you to support #TeamTrump candidates for Congress all over the nation. I am running on a pro-Trump platform in Idaho’s first congressional district, and so far I have created an enormous amount of buzz all over the state. But in order to win, I have to get my message out to hundreds of thousands of potential voters that are not familiar with my work, and that is going to take a lot of time, effort, energy and resources. It is humbling to be in a position where I am forced to rely on others, and I am learning how to reach out and ask for help. If you would like to contribute to the campaign, you can do so right here. Every single dollar makes a tremendous difference, and no donation is too small.

Fortunately, other #TeamTrump candidates are also starting to gain momentum across the country. Omar Navaro and Paul Nehlen are just two examples. If every Trump voter in the country donated at least one dollar to the campaign of a pro-Trump candidate for Congress today, all of us could have our campaigns completely funded by tomorrow. I recently learned that Americans spend 80 billion dollars a year on lottery tickets. It is so sad that people are literally flushing tens of billions of dollars down the toilet when they could be doing something constructive with it. Would you be willing to donate at least one dollar to my campaign? I personally see every single donation that comes into my campaign, and every single one encourages me so greatly.

Right now, many Democrats are having absolutely no problems raising money. If the Democrats win control of the Senate and the House in 2018, they are going to impeach President Trump, and their donors smell blood in the water.

And an effort may be made to impeach President Trump anyway if the composition of Congress stays about the same that it is right now. Many establishment Republicans would jump at the chance to stab Trump in the back, and that is why it is absolutely imperative that we get Trump a lot of friends in Congress in 2018.

Whoever wins the Republican primary here in Idaho’s first congressional district next May is going to win the general election the following November. There is no incumbent running for this seat, and I have a feeling that my primary opposition may come from a RINO in the state legislature that is rumored to be entering the race shortly. If this particular RINO ends up winning, he will be no friend of Trump.

But if I am elected, I will do whatever I can to stop the investigations into Trump and his family. It is abundantly clear that these investigations are simply witch hunts, and I will fight as hard as I can against the efforts of the Deep State to remove Trump from office.

The fate of the Trump presidency is going to hang in the balance in the mid-term elections, and many of these congressional elections are going to be decided by who raises the most money. If I can get my message out to every voter in this district, I will win, because I am much more conservative than anyone else in the race.

If you would like to help me win this race, there are several ways that you can do that…

Donate – Your donations are literally the fuel that moves our campaign forward. Since this is a completely wide open race with no incumbent, I have a very clear path to victory, but that will only happen if all of you stand with me. You have no idea how blessed I am by each contribution, and if you would like to join the effort you can do so right here.

Join The Email List – The email list on our official campaign website is how we will be keeping everyone informed about the campaign. So if you want to be part of what we are doing, please go to MichaelSnyderForCongress.com and subscribe to the email list.

Blast Campaign Materials Out To Your Email List – Perhaps you may not have much money to donate to the campaign right now, but when you forward articles such as this one out to your email contacts that multiplies the impact that we have. Some of you have hundreds of email contacts, and some of you have thousands, and it would be a tremendous help if you would share what we are trying to do with all of them.

Twitter Hashtags #MAGA And #TeamTrump – Would you be willing to post a message to Twitter each day with the hashtags #MAGA and #TeamTrump? Of course MAGA means “make America great again”, and the #TeamTrump hashtag is being used by pro-Trump campaigns all over the nation.

Sign Locations – If you live in the first congressional district here in Idaho, we are looking for locations on private property to put up signs. Ideally, we are looking for locations along roads that are heavily traveled. If you know of such a location that would be available for us, please go to MichaelSnyderForCongress.com and send me a message.

Facebook – I get a great deal of engagement on my personal Facebook profile, but we are also trying to increase engagement on our official Facebook campaign page. If you would be willing to visit the page regularly and like and share our material that would be an exceedingly great help to us.

Special Promotions – Thanks to those that supported our efforts on HelpMichaelWin.com, we have been able to print up much needed brochures and signs. We are hoping to have another special promotion ready to roll for my next interview on the Alex Jones Show on Tuesday.

Since the campaign launched on July 4th, God has been opening up door after door, and amazing things have been happening. The path to victory is very clear, but I also know that I could never do this alone. No matter how much time, effort and energy I put into this, this campaign will not succeed without the help of hundreds of volunteers and thousands of donors.

If you are wondering if I need your help, the answer is yes. You can donate to the campaign right here, and I would also like to ask you to prayerfully consider getting directly involved in the campaign in other ways as well.

My hope was that this campaign would bring together family, friends and fellow believers to work toward a common goal, and it has been such a thrill to see that actually happen. I want to thank everyone that has stepped forward to help us so far, and I can’t wait to see what happens next…

Michael Snyder is a Republican 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.

Why Does The Left Hate Us So Much? August 6, 2017

Have you ever asked yourself this question? Ever since I decided to run for Congress, I have spent quite a bit of time thinking about how divided our nation is.  Donald Trump has become the most hated person in America, earlier this year a gunman tried to kill as many Republican members of Congress as possible at a baseball field in Virginia, and the mainstream media is fueling more hatred for conservatives on a daily basis.  I think that I was more than a bit naive in thinking that I wouldn’t be caught up in all of this when I decided to run for public office.  It has only been about a month, and so far I have been slandered repeatedly, my wife and daughter have been called all sorts of names, and even our faith has been attacked.  I have never seen the left so energized in my entire lifetime, but meanwhile those of us that are trying to move the United States in a more conservative direction are facing an uphill battle when it comes to raising funds.  If you believe that people like me should be running for Congress, I hope that you will support my campaign financially.  Since there is no incumbent running in my district, the race is completely wide open, and if I raise enough money I will win because I have the strongest message by a very wide margin.

So far we have created a tremendous amount of buzz all over the district.  On Friday I was down in Coeur d’Alene, and there are some wonderful conservative people down there that are super excited that I am running.  Everywhere we go we are finding that voters are resonating with my extremely conservative message, and if I have enough resources to get this message to every voter in the district, there is no way that I should lose this race.

But of course not everybody is pleased by all the buzz I am creating.

If I win this election, I am very rapidly going to become one of the most hated members of Congress in the entire country.  And the reason why I will be hated so much is because I will be what the left fears the most – a conservative with a backbone.

In the end, this is not a battle about tax rates, the size of government or how to fix our economy.  All of those are very important issues, but at the core this is a fight for the soul of our nation.

Over the past 100 years, we have seen big government leftists take power all over the world.  The “progressives” of today are driven by the same philosophies and are using the same tactics as the communists of the USSR, the brownshirts of Nazi Germany (Nazi: National Socialists), and the Maoists of Red China.  At this moment the “progressives” dominate most of the political systems on the entire planet, and they would love to fully take control of the United States as well, but there are enough of us that still love liberty and freedom to stand in their way.

In leftist societies, big government rapidly becomes the centerpiece of society.  And that is one reason why so many of these big government systems are so godless, because government essentially takes the place of God over time.

Two diametrically opposed worldviews are clashing in our country right now, and eventually one of those worldviews will be vanquished by the other.

For those of us that still believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the “progressives” of today are an existential threat.  If the left gets enough power, they will criminalize what we believe by making it “hate speech”.  Sadly, this is already starting to happen in local communities all over America.  And online, a number of social media companies have been making a renewed effort to censor conservative voices in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s surprise election victory last November.  They see how powerful the alternative media has become and they want to shut us up.

Unfortunately, I am seeing a lot of apathy among conservatives right now.  They seem to think that the battle is over because we got Donald Trump into the White House.  What they don’t understand is that the battle is just beginning.  We need people to stand up and fight like never before, and this is something that I talk about in my brand new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”.  If America does not change direction immediately, there isn’t going to be an America.

And actually that is going to be one of my major themes when I speak at Pastor Benjamin Faircloth’s church in Lavonia, Georgia later in August.  The “What’s Next Prophecy Conference” will be held on Saturday, August 19th and Sunday, August 20th, and it will also be available online for those that are not able to make it in person…

If you live anywhere near Lavonia, I hope that you will come and join us.  This is going to be one of my very few opportunities to travel out of state in the near future, because I am going to be spending almost all of my time traveling all over Idaho for my campaign.

You know, I have actually been criticized by certain Christians for moving into the world of politics.  They seem to believe that “ministry” can only be done in a “church”, and that therefore trying to take my message to a national platform in Washington D.C. must be a “mistake”.

But all I can tell them is that I must do what I feel like God is leading me to do.  And thankfully so many others out there have rallied to my cause and have donated to my campaign.  So far, the leading fundraiser in this race is an attorney from the Boise area named Dave Leroy, and in just four weeks I have already had far more donors than he did during the entire second quarter.  But because he is getting those big $1000 and $2000 checks and I am raising money $10 and $20 at a time, I have a gap to make up.

If you believe in what I am trying to do, I would like to ask for your help.  I am the most conservative candidate in this race by a very wide margin, and it is absolutely imperative that we fill this open seat with a very strong conservative that will relentlessly fight for liberty and freedom.

Most people don’t understand that you do not just vote at the ballot box.  The truth is that you also vote when you decide who to support financially.  So many Americans wouldn’t think twice about spending 20 bucks at a fast food place, but they will never even consider contributing that much toward the fight for the future of our nation.

Every generation of Americans has had to fight for liberty and freedom, and now it is our turn.  My family is putting so much on the line in this race, but there is no possible way that we will be successful without your help.  If you would like to contribute to this fight, you can do so right here or by using a contribution form on my website.  Thank you so much for standing with me, and if we all work together I believe that we will be able to accomplish truly great things…

Our Disneyland Economy July 16, 2017

Disneyland is known as a place “where dreams come true” and where every story always has a happy ending.  But there is going to be no happy ending for the U.S. economy.  Wishful thinking has resulted in one of the greatest stock market rallies in history in recent months, but like all childhood fantasies, it won’t last.  The real economy continues to deteriorate, and we can see this even right outside of the gates of Disneyland.  Every night growing numbers of homeless people sleep on the pavement just steps away from “the happiest place on Earth”.  It can be fun to “play make believe” for a while, but eventually reality always catches up with us.

Without a doubt, the stock market has been on a tremendous run.  Since Donald Trump’s stunning election victory in November, the market has been setting record high after record high, and it is now up a total of 17 percent

The Dow Jones Industrial Average recorded its 23rd all time high of 2017 yesterday closing at 21,532.  There have been a total of 120 days where the markets have closed since President Trump’s inauguration on January 20th.  The ‘DOW’ has closed at all time highs 23 of those days for nearly 20% or one-fifth of the days the market has been open.  The market is up 9% since the inauguration. 

Since the election on November 8th the DOW has closed at record highs an amazing 40 times!   Nearly one-fourth or 24% of the 168 days the markets have closed have been record highs since the November 8th election.  The market is up 17% since the election!

If this surge was supported by hard economic data, that would be something to greatly celebrate, but that has not been the case at all.

Instead, stock prices have become completely disconnected from economic reality, and now we are facing one of the greatest stock bubbles of all time.  As Graham Summers has pointed out, stocks are now trading at price to sales ratios that we haven’t seen since the very height of the dotcom bubble…

Earnings, cash flow, and book value are all financial data points that can be massaged via a variety of gimmicks. As a result of this, valuing stocks based on Price to Earnings, Price to Cash Flow, and Price to Book Value can often lead to inaccurate valuations.

Sales on the other hand are all but impossible to gimmick. Either money came in the door, or it didn’t And, if a company is caught faking its sales numbers, someone is going to jail.

So the fact that stocks are now trading at a P/S ratio that matches the Tech Bubble (the single largest stock bubble in history) tells us that we’re truly trading at astronomical levels: levels associated with staggering levels of excess.

There is no possible way that this is sustainable, and just like before the 2008 crisis a whole host of experts are warning that disaster is imminent.  One of them is John Mauldin

Looking with fresh eyes at the economic numbers and central bankers’ statements convinced me that we will soon be in deep trouble. I now feel that it’s highly likely we will face a major financial crisis, if not later this year, then by the end of 2018 at the latest. Just a few months ago, I thought we could avoid a crisis and muddle through. Now I think we’re past that point. The key decision-makers have (1) done nothing, (2) done the wrong thing, or (3) done the right thing too late.

Having realized this, I’m adjusting my research efforts. I believe a major crisis is coming. The questions now are, how severe will it be, and how will we get through it?

And even though the stock market has been surging deeper and deeper into bubble territory in recent months, the middle class has continued to shrink and poverty has continued to grow all over the country.  In fact, because so many homeless people have been sleeping at bus shelters across from Disneyland lately authorities decided to completely remove the benches that they had been sleeping on

The vanishing benches were Anaheim’s response to complaints about the homeless population around Disneyland. Public work crews removed 20 benches from bus shelters after callers alerted City Hall to reports of vagrants drinking, defecating or smoking pot in the neighborhood near the amusement park’s entrance, officials said.

The situation is part of a larger struggle by Orange County to deal with a rising homeless population. A survey last year placed the number of those without shelter at 15,300 people, compared with 12,700 two years earlier.

But simply removing benches will not make the problem go away.

Homelessness has been growing so rapidly in Los Angeles that the the L.A. City Council actually asked Governor Jerry Brown to formally declare a state of emergency.

And in New York City, street homelessness is up 39 percent over the past year.

This is where the real economy is heading, but a rising stock market makes for much happier headlines.

Many major cities around the nation are passing laws to essentially make it illegal to be homeless.  Forcing homeless people to go somewhere else may mask the problem for a while, but it certainly doesn’t do anything to solve it.  In my new book entitled “Living A Life That Really Matters”, I talk about how real love is not just about loving those that are just like us.  Rather, real love is about caring for people no matter what they look like and no matter what they are going through.

Unfortunately, the economic suffering that we are seeing right now is just the beginning.

Just like in 2008, the major financial crisis that is coming is going to greatly accelerate our economic problems.  And just like last time, millions of people are going to lose their jobs, and millions of people are going to lose their homes.

Homelessness is already worse in many parts of the nation that it was during the depths of the last recession, and what we are going to see during the next economic downturn is going to be absolutely unprecedented.

So don’t look down on those that need a helping hand, because in the not too distant future you may find yourself needing some help.
