The answer to that question is simple. It's me! I am the guy who runs this website.
Unfortunately, there are some people out there on the Internet that have posted some completely false information about me. Normally I would ignore such a thing, but a number of my readers have brought it to my attention and it has caused some confusion.
I do not know why anyone would want to write false things about me and post them on the Internet. To me, it seems like a colossal waste of time and energy. I do not know what motivates such people, and it annoys me that I actually have to defend my own identity. I am a very private person and I like my peace and quiet. But since a lot of people come to this site, it is important for people to know who they are dealing with.
So here we go.
First of all, I was born in 1970 and I now live in Idaho. To put an end to any other speculation, I have posted a photo of my driver's license below. I have blocked out information that I do not want shared on the Internet...
I have a B.S. in Commerce from the University of Virginia. As you can see, the year I graduated was 1992...
I also have a law degree from the University of Florida. As you can see, I graduated in 2002...
I also have an LLM from the University of Florida. It is a one year degree, and all that it means is that I am way too overeducated. As you can see, I graduated in 2003...
I started this website in December 2009. Anyone could figure this out very easily by going to the very first post I ever did on this site.
I do not blame the government for every ill in the world. In fact, I think that a just government could do a lot of great things. Unfortunately, our government has gone very much in the wrong direction. Hopefully our politicians will see the error of their ways.
I do not belong to any political party or any political organization. But that does not mean that I am "non-partisan" or "in the middle".
I also do not believe that the world is about to end. I do not believe that at all. In fact, I believe that the coming economic collapse is going to unfold over a number of years. This is something that I have said repeatedly.
Other than this site, I have two primary websites that I write for...
Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them. That is okay. I am a truthseeker. I just call it like I see it. If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended. I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues.
If you want to know what I believe, just ask me. There are some people out there that are trying to associate me with all kinds of weird beliefs and theories. If you come across a site that has basic facts about me totally wrong (such as my date of birth), you can pretty much assume that everything else they are saying about me is wrong. People who go around slandering others should be ashamed.
One of the things that you should know about me is that I put a very high priority on love. Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, hopefully I am doing it with a loving heart. If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another.
The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place. It sure could use a lot more love.
Another thing that you should know about me is that I am a Christian. And I am one of those Christians that actually believes the Bible, and there are a lot of people out there that don't like people like that.
I believe that God loves us very much and that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to die on the cross for our sins. For much more on this, please see this article.

I get a ton of email, so please do not be upset if I am unable to respond right away.
If you like the work that I do, I hope that you will support it by picking up a copy of the book and several copies for friends and family members.
If you don't like the work that I do, then you probably won't like the novel either.
So what is the book about? The following is from the back cover...
The Beginning of the End is the first novel by Michael T. Snyder, the publisher of The Economic Collapse Blog. If you want to know what things in America are going to look like in a few years, you need to read this book. 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.
In the end, I am just a regular guy that loves God, that loves his family and that loves America.
Hopefully what I have written here will set the record straight.
