Today’s Thought:

Sanders is not my ideal candidate. He isn’t vegan. He supports hunting. But the policies he advocates would save millions of animals. He opposes Big Ag, ag-gag laws, corporate welfare, agricultural subsidies. He wants to rein in Wall Street, which has a stranglehold on the US government. Sanders opposes having agriculture lobbyists appointed to positions in the Departments of Agriculture, Interior, and Commerce. He opposes the entire system of lobbying by special interests and their bagmen.

He has a 100% pro-animal voting record according to the Humane Society of the US.

For animal activists, the status quo is the enemy. Politicians who accept bribes from Big Ag are unworthy of our votes.

 

 

Author’s Notes:

I am unaware of any other blog with the Armory’s mission of radicalizing the animal movement. I certainly hope I am not alone, and that there are similar sentiments being expressed by comrades unknown to me.

If you know of other blogs dedicated to animal rights and the defeat of capitalism, please comment with a link.

• Be sure to visit Armory of the Revolution’s new commissary and bookstore: The Supply Depot

You will find recommended reading on Animal Rights, revolutionary theory, politics, economics, religion, science, and atheism. There is also a section of supplies for animal liberationists, hunt saboteurs, and social revolutionaries. This is all brand new, and we will be adding lots more merchandise in the near future!

Feel free to comment. I encourage open discussion and welcome other opinions. I moderate comments because this blog has been attacked by hunters and right wing trolls. I approve comments that are critical as well as those which agree with me. Comments that I will not tolerate are those that are spam, threatening, disrespectful, or which promote animal abuse and cruelty

    • I think it highly unlikely that powerbrokers at the Democratic Convention would use Machiavellian means to deny the nomination to Sanders if he had a majority of delegates. If that were to occur, the Democractic Party would be irreparably divided, likely causing a rift at least as big as the Democrats experienced in 1860. Personally, I would welcome such a move by the Democratic establishment. The recruitment of radicals would go off the charts, and an actual leftist party could emerge.

    • Sanders supports single payer, universal healthcare. He believes healthcare is a right. His proposal is to make Medicare available to everyone. The US is the only developed nation in the world which does not guarantee healthcare to its citizens. And yet, per capital, we spend more on healthcare than any other country. Why? Because the insurance, hospital, and pharmaceutical industries are profiteering on the ill.

  1. He may not be vegan and he supports hunting, but compared to the alternatives, he looks good to me. I like his fight against Wall Street and income inequality. I don’t get the sense concern for animals is on anyone else’s radar. Doesn’t look as if Rubio votes for much of anything.
