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 might 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 our republic has been saved.
What it does mean is that we now have a narrow window of opportunity to save our republic.
Today they call themselves "Democrats," "liberals" and "progressives," but the truth is that leftist politicians in both parties have been steadily marching us down the road toward socialism for a very long time.
Our Constitutional Republic is barely recognizable at this point, and it is going to take emergency measures to restore it. So now is definitely not a time for politics as usual and more of the same in Washington. Instead, we need to send bold leaders to Washington that will be willing to turn our deeply corrupt system upside down. If I am able to win my race and get to Washington that is precisely what I intend to do, but I can't do it alone. There are less than 80 days to go until May 15, and I am asking for your help to win this incredibly close race.
If we fail to take advantage of this opportunity provided by the Trump presidency, eventually the left will retake control and will continue marching us down the road toward socialism until the Republic that our founders established is destroyed for good.
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.
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.
We are simply not going to do things the same way any longer.
I've said it before, and I will say it again. What we need is a second American revolution. I am not talking about a revolution of guns and bullets, but rather one of ideas, values and principles. I would like to share what I wrote about this second American revolution when I first announced my candidacy last July:
Today, the liberal elite dominate almost every aspect of our society. Their enormous media corporations control more than 90 percent of the news and entertainment that we watch on our televisions, their dominance of the legal system has resulted in the legalization of abortion and gay marriage and their relentless grip on public education means that an entire generation of young Americans is being indoctrinated in their ways.
And of course for decades, the liberal elite have been accustomed to pulling the strings in both major political parties. Many had believed that it would be impossible for us to ever take our government back, but the election of Donald Trump showed us that anything is possible if we will just work together.
Today, our republic is hanging by a thread. If our founders had not stood up and fought for their way of life, the United States of America would not exist today, and if we do not stand up and fight for our way of life now, there will be nothing to pass on to our children and our grandchildren.
There are many that believe that America is too far gone, and so they are content to sit back and wait for everything to fall apart.
But that is not my choice.
I choose to fight for America.
Every generation of Americans has had to take a stand for liberty, and now it is our turn.
Please join this nationwide movement, because this literally may be the last chance we ever have to take our government back.
If we can get to Congress, we are going to fan the flames of this fire until it sweeps all across America.
This race for Congress is one of the most closely contested that I have ever seen. With less than 80 days to go, four candidates are locked in an extremely tight race, and we literally do not know who is going to win.
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.
