Should Conservative Activist Michael Snyder Run For Congress?

When the liberals find out about this, they are going to go absolutely nuts. On Thursday, I announced that I am “very strongly considering” running for Congress in 2018. Now that U.S. Representative Raul Labrador has announced that he is not going to run for another term so that he can run for governor instead, the race for his House seat in Idaho is going to be completely wide open. Congressman Labrador has done such an excellent job all these years, and it is imperative that he is replaced with another very strong conservative. The key to the race is going to be winning the Republican primary, because Republicans almost always win in general elections in Idaho.

 

If I run, I am going to need a lot of help, because I have never done anything like this before. Earlier today, I shared my intentions publicly for the very first time on the Alex Jones Show

If you have been following my work for years, you already know who I am and what I believe.

For those that are not quite so familiar with me, below is my attempt to very briefly summarize some of my positions on the key issues…

Globalism: President Trump’s “America First” message greatly resonated with conservative voters all over the country during the 2016 election. I am proud to stand with President Trump, and we must greatly resist the efforts of the globalists to slowly but surely erode our national sovereignty through a series of interlocking international treaties and agreements. Instead of merging America into a “global system”, we need to focus on “making America great again”.

The Federal Reserve: The Fed is at the very heart of our debt-based financial system. Since it was created in 1913, the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by about 98 percent and the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 5000 times larger. Eliminating the Federal Reserve is one of the keys to a bright economic future for America.

National Debt: Barack Obama and his friends in Congress added 9.3 trillion dollars to the U.S. national debt over eight years, and so now we are nearly 20 trillion dollars in debt. Thomas Jefferson was correct when he said that government debt was a way for one generation to steal money from another generation, and at this point we are stealing more than 100 million dollars from future generations of Americans every single hour of every single day. This is a major national crisis that must be addressed immediately.

Planned Parenthood: Activists have documented the horrible crimes against humanity that are being committed at Planned Parenthood clinics all over the nation. Body parts are being harvested from dead babies and sold off to the highest bidder. I will be Planned Parenthood’s number one enemy in Congress, and I will never vote for any bill that grants them even a single penny of federal funding. Planned Parenthood must be defunded as soon as possible, and it will be a great day in America when every Planned Parenthood clinic in the entire country is finally shut down for good.

Balance Of Power Between The Federal Government And The States: Our founders intended to create a central government with very limited powers, but instead it has evolved into an absolute monster. We need to tame that monster and restore the constitutional balance of power that our founders originally intended.

2nd Amendment: I steadfastly oppose any efforts to restrict the freedoms guaranteed to the American people by the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution. Gun violence is the worst in cities such as Chicago that have implemented extremely strict gun control measures. When criminals know that average citizens may be armed, they are less likely to break into homes.

The Economy: I have spent many years documenting America’s economic problems. Barack Obama was the only president in U.S. history to never have a single year when the U.S. economy grew by at least 3 percent, and economic growth has slowed down even more so far in 2017. If we want the U.S. economy to be great again, we desperately need to start returning to free market principles.

Tax Reform: Lowering tax rates is not nearly enough. I would abolish the individual income tax and shut down the Internal Revenue Service. The greatest era of economic growth in all of U.S. history was when there was no individual income tax, and I believe that we can return to those days.

Trade: Over the past several decades, the United States has seen tens of thousands of manufacturing facilities shut down. We have lost millions of good paying jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars of tax revenue. We will always need to trade with other nations, but we cannot afford to keep running such huge trade deficits. I agree with President Trump that our current trade deals are very bad deals for America, and we need to replace them with balanced deals that will bring factories and jobs back to the United States.

Education: I strongly believe in parental choice when it comes to education. Our system of public education is a giant mess, and so many parents have chosen alternatives such as homeschooling and private schools. I would abolish Common Core and the U.S. Department of Education, and I would return full control over education to the state level.

Hardening The Electrical Grid: A massive electromagnetic pulse that could take down our national power grid for an extended period of time could be produced by a nuclear weapon, but it could also be produced by solar activity. We have had several near misses in recent years, and scientists assure us that it is only a matter of time before another “Carrington Event” happens. It is absolutely imperative that we spend the few billion dollars that it would take to protect our electrical grid against such a disaster.

Homeland Security: I have great respect for those that work very hard to protect us every day, but without a doubt there have been many instances of abuse over the years. It is imperative that our security officials protect the rights and dignity of ordinary Americans at the same time that they are protecting us from terror.

Foreign Policy: I believe that the United States should have the most powerful military in the entire world, but that we should also be very hesitant to become entangled in foreign conflicts. I strongly support the fight against ISIS, but I very strongly believe that it is not in the interest of the United States to become involved in the civil war in Syria. Whenever possible we should pursue peace with our neighbors around the world, and having a strong, prepared and vibrant military is one of the keys to achieving a long and lasting peace.

Race Relations: The Declaration of Independence says that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Instead of allowing the color of our skin to divide us, we need to start learning how to love one another deeply and with sincerity. Every precious life is of extraordinary value to God, and we should view each other the same way.

Abortion: Since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973, nearly 60 million babies have been murdered in America. I am 100% Pro-Life, and I will work tirelessly to fight the scourge of abortion in our country. I greatly applaud President Trump for nominating judges that are Pro-Life, and any Republican politician that currently holds office in the entire nation that is not Pro-Life should be immediately challenged for their position by someone that is Pro-Life.

Health Care: I am for a 100% repeal of Obamacare. But of course that won’t fix our rapidly failing health care system. Ordinary families all over America are being financially crippled by rapidly rising health insurance premiums, and we need to rebuild the way that we approach health care from the ground up. I believe that a return to true competition and free market principles would do much to lower costs and restore sanity to the system.

Immigration: America is a land of immigrants, but the way that we are approaching immigration today is entirely messed up. We make it exceedingly difficult to come in legally through the front door, but meanwhile we are leaving the back door completely wide open for criminals, gang members, drug dealers and those that want to abuse the system. So we are keeping out the hard working, law-abiding people that we should want to come to this country, and we are allowing in law breakers that are causing havoc in communities all over America. We need to ensure that everyone comes in through the front door, and that is why I support President Trump’s call for a border wall and greatly increased border security along our southern border.

Jobs: One of the biggest problems that Idaho residents have to face is a lack of good paying jobs. I will use the power of my office to promote economic growth and job creation in Idaho and for all Americans, and I believe that a return to free market principles will mean a more prosperous future for all of us.

Principles & Values: I am a Bible-believing Christian. Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, and the principles and values that I base my decisions upon come from the Word of God. Our founders were men of faith, and they were not ashamed of this fact at all. In fact, the second president of the United States, John Adams, once made the following statement…

“The general principles on which the fathers achieved independence were the general principles of Christianity. I will avow that I then believed, and now believe, that those general principles of Christianity are as eternal and immutable as the existence and attributes of God.”

If we truly want to make America great again, we need to return to the values and the principles that made America great in the first place. I know that many liberals believe that those values and principles should be completely discarded in our day and time, but that is something with which I completely disagree.

    I’m sure the Holy Spirit will guide to making the correct decision…I would definitely vote for you…but my Spirit man is telling me time is shorter than most think…it would be terrible to do so much prepping and get distracted now…look no further than current events concerning Israel and the surrounding areas…may the light continue to shine in you brother…

  • beezh

    Michael, I completely agree with your positions on the key issues, and you stated them very well. I wish all who hold political office would base their decisions on the Word of God as you do.

    • Uhde

      I wonder if he would prevent women from swallowing birth control pills?
      Not talking abortion, but just taking a pill.

      Or the rare occasion when a woman’s life is in danger if she can’t get an abortion?

      • Well, sam, many women cannot tolerate the Pill. The same goes for various other contraceptives. The male birth control pill has “gentler” side effects than the standard female one does, and men roundly stated they would NOT put up with the side effects.

        Also, many women (and girls) don’t have access to the pill, you see, there are terrible, terrible people in the U.S. today who have been closing down Planned Parenthood clinics, leaving many of the country’s poorest Americans with no contraception. Back alley abortions still happen because of that.

        And why stop the embryo from becoming a fetus if it means killing the host (i.e., mother’s life in danger)? Isn’t keeping all zygotes, embryos, and fetuses safe more important than the silly little life of the unfortunate fool who was impregnated (whether against her will or not)? And do remember please that more Americans are in favor of keeping abortion safe, legal, and available.

        • defiant rebel

          Theres a radio host i listen to (Savage Nation) mainly for the muslim bashing lol and he said if the zealots got their way and banned abortion 100% women would be having homemade abortions like they do in the Catholic countries and the 1950s in America and a lot of them die because of it.
          He explained it a lot better than me.

          • Yes! Michael Wiener! The guy Stormfront talks about all the time. He of course gets accused of faking all of his mumbo jumbo in much the same way Alex Jones does strictly for cash and ratings from the low-IQ crowd).

            Of course just because someone who changed his name to “Savage” theorizes something does not make it true. There are women who perform abortions safely at home in the United States, precisely because the so-called “fundamentalist Christians are the American Ta|iban. No matter how illegal the radical Christian terrorists become vis a vis abortion, they are remarkable easy to get done without a surgeon.

          • defiant rebel

            So people who turn on that station like i do in the car have a low IQ? What about people who also listen to the liberal station like me? Maybe this helps raise my IQ!
            You referenced a fake story from the Washington Post once so your IQ isn’t perfect either.

            Yes, i’m fully aware the talk show hosts lie because i’ve heard him say GMOs are great & marijuana is horrible. He won’t say Dylann Roof was found with suboxone. But I’m sure the liberal side of the coin lies just as much. It’s all controlled.
            Alex Jones seems like he’s become the controlled opposition.

            Blacklisted news seems better.

      • iris

        Almost all pro lifers recognize that a woman’s life being in danger is an exception, myself included. That said, as a person who was involved in the pro life movement on the ground for years, there are many stories of women who decided to take the risk, and delivered healthy babies with no negative consequences to their own health, others were told that the baby would be severely disabled, yet they were perfectly normal when born. Drs. may mean well, but they don’t know it all. Also, many pro lifers make a distinction between birth control pills and elective abortion, although the general consensus used to be that one part of the pill held abortifacient properties.

        • defiant rebel

          There should be a 2-child policy. Humans keep expanding and eventually there will be no wilderness left. Everything will either be city or farms and no wild place left to escape except for national parks / state parks that u have to pay to visit and are swamped with people.

  • Sean H

    As the world heads towards the rise of antichrist all men will have to make the decision who they will serve and who is King. Jesus or the world. Politics is compromise. Christ wants no compromise. Michael, you do so much more proclaiming truth. If you get involved in politics your voice will actually be dampened. Christ is after individual hearts, regardless of what man’s law says. It is more important, and actually more effective to get people, especially millenials, to understand abortion is murder and reject it, than to pass laws. Millenials are rejecting abortion because the truth is it is murder. If someone wants to murder their child but can’t because of the law, they are still guilty of murder in their heart before God. Remember Paul was a roman citizen and could vote for a roman senator. Which letter did Paul tell roman gentiles to vote for the senator thar best helps the forming church. Answer – absolutely none of his writings.

    • Kay

      Amen, Sean H. Your words are WISDOM from on high. One of the old commentators, perhaps M. Henry, pointed out that in the book of Daniel, when Nebuchadnezzar had the dream and saw the image with head of gold, arms and chest of silver, thighs of brass, legs of feet and iron — the governments of the world were, at least in their beginnings, as precious metals in the sight of this proud king. The commentator continues that just a few chapters later, when Daniel receives a vision from the Lord God Almighty pertaining to the governments of this world, he saw them as various BEASTS!!! That is what this world system is in God’s eyes! A Christian can do more OUTSIDE of government than inside. I am 60+ years old, and have been a Christian almost 34 years, and every “Christian” I’ve seen get involved in politics compromises, sooner or later, because they must represent ALL of their constituency…not just the believers. I’d run FROM office, rather than FOR it. Again….great words, Sean H.

      • Sean H

        Amen to your post as well. I have been in Christ for 22 years now. I was raised by agnostics and my mother was former Catholic. I had to crash and burn and then realize I neede as savior. Christians must stay in the Word daily or as Jesus said ” even the elect will be deceived”. Pray, humble ourselves before the Lord, read the Bible daily and do all things God leads us to.

      • carson

        yeah when the devil took Christ to the highest mountain and showed the Lord all the kingdoms of the world and said he’d give Him all the power and glory of all the kingdoms-for it had been delivered unto him and to whom he wills he gives it- he wasn’t joking nor lying. (luke 4:5-6).
        (but we also know the devil is restrained etc)
        More is also found in romans 12:5 adam sinned and sin entered the world, 1st john 2:15-16 and 1st john 5:19..the whole world lieth in wickedness.

        The kingdoms of unredeemed hearts won’t change through outward laws, the heart itself must be changed and that change only comes by God’s grace through faith in Christ otherwise you have the same set up as ever and as when Christ walked in physical on the earth, outward laws and hidden corruptions..whitewashed tombs, and faith comes through hearing and hearing by the Word so what’s more needed in the world..laws and politics, or the word of God..

        • Kay

          Excellent points, Carson. The “best” that government can sometimes achieve is “enforcing morality”….which usually doesn’t last for exactly the reason you gave, and that is, men’s hearts must change. We MUST be born again by believing on Christ Jesus, the Son of God, and obtain that new nature…or else we are hopelessly lost, and will always follow our base nature! Thanks for the reply! :)

          • carson

            Hi Kay, yep all are hopelessly lost and all need to be born again in Christ.
            To have laws that make people return to the closets for their practices of the flesh..well we had that didn’t we…yet we still ended up here, just as prophesied things would go too by the way.
            And further prophesied that things will continue to wax worse…

            But who will be saved, and some, even many, might be, and that seems entirely more important given the lateness of the hour and that eternity is..eternity, and life can only be had in Christ.
            Those who have the Son have life those that do not have the Son do not have life 1st john 5:12.

        • iris

          I partly agree, Carson, the state of one’s heart is where it begins and the fruits, good or bad, come from it., but, it was probably legal to practice what was so socially acceptable in Sodom, and the account in Genesis tells us that the townspeople wanted to gang rape the two angels disguised as men. When Jesus returns, I doubt He’ll tolerate many of the things we are being brainwashed into accepting as loving and normal. I certainly see and agree with your statement about the heart, though! God bless.

          • carson

            Hi Iris, yeah Luke 17:26-30..as the day’s of Noah then it goes on to include as the day’s of Lot…and there’s a reason why the day’s of Lot were also used…
            So all sorts of awful will be socially acceptable and even legal and I guess I didn’t word my comment to clear but basically I don’t think the world will even achieve driving immoralities back underground but rather immorality will become even more paraded and socially accepted and that’s all shown how it’ll be in the last age in bible prophesies.

  • Paul Patriot

    Michael, I have not missed a single day of reading your blogs since early 2008, and I think someone like you would be good to serve in a position where you could possibly bring some Godly and Constitutional influence back into political arena.

    You and family in my thoughts and prayers every day!

          whether it’s right to obey God or men..for those of faith born again in Christ obeying God is the only way.
          We should not become slaves to a system that attempts to penalize following the Lord..grade and wasted money! (oh no! lol) or not.
          Money education career status etc within the world or whatever..what is that? for the worldly minded it’s become godlike or an idol.
          How many ‘go along to get along’ and sell out to the world all for the sake of this present life…love of the world is the bad path.

  • Zlatko Milanovic

    Are you going to jail employers of illegal aliens? Are you going to eliminate H1-B visas, that treasonous employers use to replace Americans with cheap foreign labor? Are you going to make sure that every American can go see a doctor and afford to do so? (No, emergency rooms don’t count!) Are you going to stop trade deals that send our jobs overseas? Are you going to punish companies that do so?
    I didn’t think so…

    • Rich Globalist

      I support freedom of speech even of the most repugnant and vile specimens of humans. I also support the right to freedom of speech of those of us who enlightened to ridicule the ignorant.

      Communists are the most worthless, detestable abominations. Calling for the imprisonment of job creators is worse than any illegal immigrant. I will pay you $5000 US to broadcast this on all social media platforms. When my hedge fund strategies are implemented, I will offer Fox News and CNN a couple million to have you live on their shows, so your psychotic rambling becomes known to the world. No one would hire or buy from a practitioner of savagery who advocates bloodshed and socialism–which leads to communism.

      • Zlatko Milanovic

        No communists here, just another American who knows that it is the rich globalists who are the enemies of the American people; traitors who are selling us out and destroying our middle class and our Republic. Like you.

  • CathyF

    Michael, You’d be my Rep, and I’d likely vote for you – agree with your positions here. But I agree with other commenters that your voice may be needed more here, and on your other sites. I also have little hope that the direction of this country can be changed by a few good (or even great) politicians. Our hope, at this time, must come from turning to God.

    • Paul Patriot

      You make some good points. I would miss the new articles on Michaels blogs, as I view them as a source of good information.

      I also agree with you regarding, no man being able to change a broken, corrupt, Godless system, and I view much of our turmoil as fruits of rebellion and judgement from our sins as a nation.

      With that being said, having folks like Michael, with his worldview, can only be a positive thing, especially, if it were to have influence on laws and legislation.

      I agree, the nation is sick with rebellion and sin and needs to repent, but, having some “light” in the government is better than having someone who is anti Constitutional, antagonistic towards our Christian heritage, and infected with political correctness, seems far better for the Republic, than the other options.

  • ~ Aligning one’s name along with that of Donald Trump’s is a toxic choice, dooming yourself to the immediate scorn and hatred attached to that so-called president with the lowest approval ratings in the history of the country.

    ~ “Race Relations: The Declaration of Independence says
    that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights[…]”
    … <—- That is a pile of useless platitudes. Let's remember the mockery that Dithering Donald always opens himself up to when he begins to talk (i.e., "ramble incoherently"). Dithering Donald speaks about as eloquently as a sixteen year-old beauty pageant contestant. This paragraph on race relations says NOTHING, it's just a bunch of rhetoric with NO plans, NO actions, and NO meaning.

    ~ The majority of Americans are in favor of abortion remaining safe, legal, and affordable. Maybe Idaho is against those things?

    ~ We were trained to hate Obamacare. Then we hated Obamacare. Then we had almost a decade of politicians promising to replace/repeal Obamacare with a far better and more affordable option… yet when those same, identical politicians rose to power in 2016/17, they HAD NOTHING. Almost a decade of whining, and all this administration did was remove the few favorable aspects of Obamacare. Ironically, it was Deceptive Donald's fan base who were hurt the worst by Trumpcare's arrival.

    Be exceedingly careful about saying you approve in any way of this president. Again, he has unbelievably low approval ratings, he is roundly despised, mocked (for very good reason), and the only people left who still support him are nutjob True Believers™. They may indeed start speaking in tongues and bleeding from their hands and feet when Deceitful Donald's name is mentioned, but there are not enough of these deluded psychopaths to vote you in over any opposing candidate. Don't forget, his core supporters have prison tattoos of 卐s, Celtic crosses, 88's, 1488's, and gas chambers.

    • Paul Patriot

      You wrote…….”~ The majority of Americans are in favor of abortion remaining safe, legal, and affordable. Maybe Idaho is against those things?”

      The God of heaven does not share that sentiment, abortion is murder period!

      Until the majority of Americans finally grow a spiritual backbone, and acknowledge that abortion, legal or not, is the genocidal murder of millions of human beings…

      You wrote…….”The Declaration of Independence says
      that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights[…]”

      Exactly!!!!!!!! This would have been a good one for Hitlery and her , pro abortion, pro planned parenthood followers to internalize and acknowledge that the creator God says that life begins in the womb……….and one of those inalienable rights would be, to actually have the opportunity to be born.

      • I side with G-d on this one: Abortion is not murder. If abortion were murder, G-d would not have committed those millions of abortions in the Old testament. Besides, when a mortal runs for political office, s/he must be bound to Earthly laws. If someone’s religiosity precludes him/her from carrying out the duties assigned, then that someone should consider employing some integrity and NOT entering politics. Think about it this way: if a Mus|im ran for office in your town and yada yada some stuff happened where he cited the Word of G-d and from that point forward all women had to wear burqas and hijabs, etc., would you keep your yap shut — or would you suddenly devise a way to say religion and G-d should be kept out of politics?

        “[…] Hitlery[sic] and her , pro abortion, pro planned parenthood followers to
        internalize and acknowledge that the creator God says[sic] that life begins
        in the womb”

        G-d the Creator, G-d of the Bible says that life begins upon the first breath of air outside the womb. At no point did G-d or anyone else in any of the sixty-six Books (nor the Apocrypha!) ever come close to saying that life begins anywhere other than when G-d breathes life into the newborn’s nostrils.

        Also, there is no one called “Hitlery”, ever, in all of time. Saying there is/was only destroys any little tiny modicum of credibility you might try to pretend you have.

        • carson

          if your using the NIV it’s no wonder you’d think that God does abortions since that wretched version has Numbers 5:21-22 as if saying ‘miscarry’ when the whole set of verses dealing with the jealously test never once say’s anything about the woman having become pregnant or anything and also is the only version to use ‘miscarry’.
          Clearly reading the whole of the passages pregnancy was never part of the jealously offering, the offering effects the cheater, or not, not the pregnant, or not, but the NIV orients it to be only about one who is pregnant then, proving the NIV as the trash that it is because the original whole of the passages never mention pregnancy nor are about pregnancy.

          The NIV and these new versions are only fit for starting fires in the old woodstove, if people are unsure it’s easy enough to reference the KJ and see where the new versions are different, even mark the new versions where they differ..or just throw the newer ones out

      Us educated folks know Hillary would’ve been a wonderful president for making Americans free again and restoring jobs and it’s just common sense that Donald is pure evil. After all, the TV and newspapers tell us so and they would never lie!

      • In what time and space dimension did ANY of that happen the way you describe?

        Because in this plane of existence, the TV/newspapers/media have told us for three, long decades that Hillary Clinton was everything bad under the sun, and those same media told us daily what a brilliant businessman socialite and *scamp* Dev!l-worshiper Donald is.

        Only now that the gullibles & deplorables (who, frankly, are the same people) see their buffoon in action have the media changed their tune about Duncecap Donald.

        Of course it’s hard to ignore now that he’s under honest scrutiny.

  • DJohn1

    The art of Congress is to make deals.
    Anyone not making deals is not going to be effective.
    And that is the Devil of it. What are you willing to give up in order to get what you want from other Congress people?
    Talk to former head of the Republicans in the House. John Brennan(spelling?)
    From Ohio. Knows the Congress as well as any man can.
    I think it made an alcoholic out of him.
    Amateurs are eaten alive.
    My own experience is with a daily newspaper. You forgot one important thing.
    The media is socialist, democrat, and very biased. It is owned by less than 6% of the wealthy and it is instructed how and what to report.
    It too is a monster that needs to be brought back to truthful reporting. It needs a much broader base of ownership and given its head to report the entire truth.
    Trump is running against this agenda of lies in the media.
    Democrats are accusing without proof.
    They are masters of the art of smoke and mirrors.
    If you run fine. But go in with your eyes open. Talk to John if he will see you.
    Power is addictive. He may be retired but I think a young idealist such as yourself can use an old dog that knows all of the tricks of the Congress.

      Good comment, DJohn1.

  • Concerned Capitalist

    With regard to the anti-globalism argument (the series of ideologies that support the superiority of market capitalism over the lousy, abhorrent state and pertinent interference it may cause to the free flow of labor and capital), it seems to focus on the fringe conspiracy with the same name. Globalism has reduced the number poor people in the world by billions. It has also increased the productivity of companies and job creators–by billions of dollars.

    “…we need to replace them with balanced deals that will bring factories and jobs back to the United States.” As a result of such anti capitalist and pro-protectionist policies that are loved only by the plebeian, philistine говно и коммунистическая сука и социалистическая свинья (socialist/anti-global trade swine), companies such as AAPL or GOOG will immediately close up shop here and move to a business friendly environment. The U.S. is already floundering in retaining operations. Why? Us Americans are too entrenched in the belief that we are entitled to everything. I am not a member of that execrable group; I am entitled to what I own and that only. Workers–or unions, rather–believe they should be paid US$40 per hour to attach steering wheels to cars. The only good American automobile company is Tesla.

    Our education system is already in disrepair, but allow mentally disturbed septuagenarians to teach creationism, which is completely unscientific (how is the Earth 6000 years old when the Indus Valley, Mesopotamian, and other Asian civilizations are far older?) Science does not lie, unless our personal beliefs become indistinguishable from it and thus start misleading people. Some states such as Kansas, and people such as paleoconservative socialists value such superstition above investing and personal finance classes. I created hedge fund strategies through self discovery in mid 10th grade, and read about established strategies later. If schools taught through self discovery coupled with instruction, that would prove more profitable than asteroid mining.

    I wish you complete and total success in your undertakings!!! We need as many true and godly conservatives as we can get seated in Congress and you definitely are one of such!! Even though I do not live in that State I will support you in whatever way I can.
    May the Lord be with you and bless you in this great plan!!!

    Hi Iris, things may be closer then many might think, keep looking up unto the Lord great day with rejoicing too!

      I agree, Carson, I’d be surprised if He doesn’t return within the next couple of years. I know we’re not supposed to name dates, but remain occupied in Him, however, He did tell us to observe the signs and seasons. Good Friday fell on Passover, His Resurrection was on the day of First Fruits, Pentacost happened at the Feast of Weeks. I believe His return will occur at one of the Fall assemblies. Yeshua said that we couldn’t know the day or the hour of His return, but He also said that the generation which sees the fig tree blossom, (the fig tree is one of the main symbols of Israel, which re-blossomed in May, 1948) would be the same generation to witness the consummation of human history as we now know it. Modern Israel will be 70 years old as a nation next year. I could certainly be wrong, but I hope not.

        yep and looking forward to the Lord Jesus’ blessed day, what an awesome day it’ll be!

          Yes, indeed, for those who have put their trust, hope and confidence in Him. The rest of the world will be shocked at first, but He will rule this world He created with justice when He returns. There won’t be anyone who won’t know the Truth at that point. They may not like it, but He will rule rightly.

  • Hey Michael- like Paul Patriot, I’m also one of your earliest readers… going way back to the days when “Gary2” the commie would post regular entries and make every conservative person’s skin crawl (you remember him, don’t you? The guy with the Cookie Monster icon with a gun barrel pointing at you… who could forget him?). Anyway, I’m glad you are thinking about running… that’s great news. This old Washingtonian hopes you run and win. May the Lord bless you and be with you!

    Michael, even though I identify as leaning-left, I cannot agree more with your statements on ILLEGAL immigration. What’s to debate about it?

    Also, the electrical grid hardening is imperative, education’s a mess, and the tax system needs to be reformed.

    Even though we don’t see eye-to-eye on several issues (cough, healthcare + economic collapse, cough), I would vote for you… if I didn’t live in another state.

    You have absolutely zero chance of getting elected, so why bother? As soon as the media focuses on your website and it’s content you will be slandered badly by the media.
