As for me, I'm not at all happy about the USDA Market Access Program (MAP) that just recently helped establish a market for cow carcasses to Sri Lanka... Yeah, the country that's mainly Hindu and Buddhist, whose diet is primarily plant based. Nothing like tax dollars going to increase the "demand" for beef.
I'd also like a country that didn't purchase $170 million of pork, lamb, chicken, and catfish. Or a military that buys 94 million lbs. of beef, 64 million lbs. of pork, and 500,000 lbs. of lamb each year. Actually a country (and a world) that has no need for a military sounds even better.
I'd cast a vote for a country that didn't hide information about antibiotic resistance as a result of growing "food" animals.
In addition, I also would vote for a country that doesn't suppress the idea of a "meatless Monday"... One that doesn't allow certain states to violate their own cruelty laws like Pa. does regarding it's horrendous pigeons killing festivals. I'd vote for a country that didn't kill wolves or coyotes to "protect" livestock. I'd vote for a country that left it's wild horses alone! I'd vote for a country that banned using animals in circuses. I'd vote for a country that didn't allow programs to "swim with the dolphins", with the tiger cubs or with the alligators.
I'd vote for a country that didn't find it acceptable to put millions of beings in a position of drowning or burning to death. I'd vote for a country that didn't theatrically "pardon" one bird while promoting the evisceration of millions of others.
I could go on much longer regarding the country I'd vote for... And certainly no one person will be the one to make much positive change for our animal friends. So... this sort of sums up what I'm thinking about as I cast my vote tomorrow:
Well... Not really! But what other choice is there??? :/
