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(Read More...)

Uncle Sam is Biggest Brother

(Guest article by Phil Hart) Back in the 1770’s there was a collection of radicals, who were highly educated in the natural law and the errors and successes of past political and economic systems. They were American Colonists with names like John Hancock, Samuel Adams, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, et. al. They believed that each man was uniquely created by God and could have a personal relationship with the Creator if he or she chose to do so. This mind-set also caused these men to reject the idea that God only spoke to men through either the Pope or the King, and that the political theory of the “Divine Right of Kings” was a scam used by kings to justify their dictatorial form of government. Claiming their divine right, kings would claim they represented God to the people and that all their policies were God ordained and therefore infallible. (Read More...)

URGENT UPDATE: 30 Days To Go! We Have Nearly 50,000 Mailers To Send Out, But Not Enough Money To Do It

As I write this, there are just 30 days to go until May 15th, and it is becoming exceedingly clear that every single vote is going to count in this very tight race. If you would like to help us turn Congress completely upside down and fight to restore our constitutional republic, we would greatly, greatly appreciate it. We printed up 50,000 mailers to send out to key voters, but so far we have only sent out a very small percentage of those mailers. At this moment we don’t have the resources to send out the rest, and I am asking for your help. These mailers are extremely persuasive, and if we can get them into the hands of key primary voters it will win us thousands more votes. And it may only take 30,000 votes to win this thing. This is the biggest financial crunch that we have faced during the campaign so far, and it is frustrating because we are so close to crossing the finish line with a victory. Please help us. If you feel led to help, here are three ways that you can do so… (Read More...)

Our March 31st Federal Fundraising Deadline Is In 3 Days, And We Really Need A Miracle

There are just 48 days left until election day on May 15th, and my race for Congress is incredibly close. This week I learned that our numbers have improved even more, and we are the only campaign with any significant momentum, but I cannot stress enough how tight things are at the moment. As we approach the finish line, there are three candidates that still have a realistic shot of winning, and we are one of those frontrunners. On Tuesday night a major debate was held for the top 6 candidates in Ada County, and if you have not seen the debate yet you can watch it right here. Skip ahead to the 15 minute mark in the video, because that is when the debate actually begins. We feel really good about where we are at coming out of that debate, but a couple of the other guys still have more money than us, and we desperately need to close that gap. If they are able to reach the undecided voters better than us over the last 48 days, one of them could still potentially win this race. The last federal fundraising deadline of the primary campaign is in 3 days, and if you would like to make a financial contribution before the deadline we would greatly, greatly appreciate it… (Read More...)

The Last Financial Deadline Before The Election Is In 11 Days And We Need Your Help

With just 56 days to go until election day, this race for Congress is still incredibly close right now. Our numbers have been surging, but there are four candidates very closely grouped together, and the truth is that any of the four of us could potentially win this thing on May 15th. We are incredibly excited about the fact that our campaign is the only one that seems to be gaining more traction, but a couple of the other campaigns do have a bit more money then us. We need to close that gap, and the last FEC financial deadline of the campaign is coming up in just 11 days. If you feel led to help us, the following are three ways that you can give a gift to the campaign… (Read More...)

A Member Of Congress Explains Why The Corruption In Congress Is Much Worse Than You Think

What would you say if I told you that committee chairs were for sale in Congress? And what would you say if I told you that many members of Congress spend far more time on the telephone raising money than on the jobs that the people of their states actually elected them to do? There is a reason why so many Americans absolutely hate Congress. At this moment, Congress has an approval rating of just 15 percent, and approval ratings for Congress have been at extremely low levels for a very long time. We all know that Congress has become completely corrupt, that it is completely unresponsive to the American people and that it has become all about the money. Many have asked why I would want to become part of such a corrupt institution, and I respond by saying that it is time to take our government back. (Read More...)

What Do You Think Would Have Happened To America If Hillary Clinton Had Won The Election?

As I travel up and down Idaho’s first congressional district, I frequently talk with voters about how we almost lost everything in November 2016. When I ask what a Hillary Clinton presidency would have meant for this country, almost every single time I get a response like “it would have been over” or “we would have been finished”. Our Republic was already hanging by a thread going into 2016, and even four years under Clinton may have been enough to wipe out any hope of ever turning things around. The election of Donald Trump was literally the greatest miracle in modern American political history, but it doesn’t mean that our Republic has been saved. What it does mean is that we now have a narrow window of opportunity to save our Republic. (Read More...)

Tell Us What You Think – Will More Gun Control Make America A Safer Place?

The left has decided that the great tragedy that we just witnessed down in Florida is an opportunity to try to grab our guns. We are witnessing an all-out assault on the 2nd Amendment like we haven’t seen in decades, and this will undoubtedly be one of the most hotly debated issues as we head into the 2018 mid-term elections. I will never compromise a single inch when it comes to the 2nd Amendment, but unfortunately not all politicians are willing to take the same stand. In fact, some of my opponents publicly indicated that they were willing to compromise on gun issues even before the tragedy in Florida took place. If you would like to help us win this race so that we can relentlessly stand up for your 2nd Amendment rights in Washington, here is how you can make a financial contribution… (Read More...)

The Next 90 Days Will Determine Whether Michael Snyder Goes To Congress, And We Need A $50,000 Miracle

After everything, it is going to come down to the last 90 days. Hundreds of you have already gotten involved in this campaign either as volunteers or donors, and we have shocked the Idaho political elite by becoming one of the leading contenders in this race. But there is no prize for coming in second place. On May 15th, the voters in Idaho’s first congressional district will make their choice, and we didn’t put our blood, sweat and tears into this thing to come in second or third. As I write this, there are four candidates that still have a legitimate shot of winning, and we are one of the four. Our numbers have been steadily improving, and it is an incredibly tight race. We have a great plan for pulling ahead during the final three months, but we need more resources in order to implement it. Some of the best political minds in Idaho are on our team, and we know exactly what we need to do, but in order to make our plan a reality we need a $50,000 miracle. If you feel a prompting in your heart to help, here is the information that you will need… (Read More...)
