How Are Your Candidates On Animal Rights?


Every single Republican senator except the ailing Johnny Isakson (who has a terrible record regarding animals) voted to allow hunters for the 1st time into our national park wildlife refuge in Alaska. 220 Republican congresspersons listed below voted for the bill which Donald Trump quickly signed. The bill pushed by Congress' worst animal abuser Don Young of Alaska allows aerial hunting of animals, baiting of bear traps, and the murder of bear cubs and wolf puppies in their dens by stalking hunters terrorizing animals. Despite the human chauvinism of OnTheIssues org which does not list animal rights as a category on which to rate candidates, one can go to the Humane Society Legislative Fund Scorecard for senators and representatives.

Rosendale is a cattle rancher who opposes all categories of abortion including rape and incest, who wants full repeal of Obamacare, opposes gay marriage.

May both men follow the example of 4th generation Montana cattle rancher Howard Lyman who had spinal stem cancer and promised God he would become a vegan and promote vegan diet if her lived. Lyman and Oprah Winfrey were sued by Amarillo cattlemen twice for publicizing the widespread incidence of Mad Cow. The Amarillo men lost as the 5th Circuit ruled that the truth is not libelous.

Renacci voted as did 200 other Republican congresspersons to bring aerial hunting into our national park in Alaska, to allow baiting of bear traps and the murder of bear cubs and wolf puppies by trophy hunters and others. Several countries have outlawed aerial hunting. Don Young, considered the most animal abusing member of the House of Rep., introduced the legislation, which for the first time allows stalking hunters to terrorize animals in what was designed as a wildlife sanctuary. Renacci's opponent, incumbent Sherrod Brown like EVERY
other Democrat senator or independent, voted against the brutal bill.

Utah
Mitt Romney gave 1.9 million dollars in Burger King stock to the Mormon church which is the church most invested in animal slaughter and meat, as well as the church running the biggest calf slaughter operation in the US (Deseret in Florida). Romney as owner of IHart Radio through the sole owership of Bain Capital has profiteered from and promoted animal slaughter products. He advocated sending 50,000 more troops to Iraq (none of his own sons) both in his campaign and through the talk show hosts on his radio network. The illegal and immoral wars of our country since World War 2 have bombed, burned, smashed, abandoned people, animals, birds, frogs, butterflies, trees etc.
