Hillary. When you become president you will make history. You will be our first female president.
I want you to make history again, by promoting a vegan lifestyle for all Americans. I want you to take a stand against animal agriculture, against American over consumption of animal products. I want you to help all Americans make the connection between the food on their plate and the death and environmental destruction that the food caused.
We know that animal agriculture makes up 18% of greenhouse gas emissions, 34-76 trillion gallons of water consumption a year, 45% of the world's land coverage, the leading cause of water pollution, and the leading cause of deforestation.
We also know that the number 1 killer of Americans (heart disease) can be prevented and reversed by adopting a plant based vegan diet.
Yet, most Americans are still comfortable eating steak for dinner.
I urge you to take a political stand. End government subsidies to the meat and dairy industries. Instead, increase subsidies to local, community based vegan farming. Farming at a local level, producing the veggies and fruits that humans are designed to eat, is the way of the future.
Do you have the courage to lead America on the ethical path? Are you willing to state the unpopular so that we can end unnecessary pollution, death and destruction? We need a leader who will do this. We need a leader who welcomes this necessary change.
If you, as the future President of the United States of America, promote a vegan lifestyle, the rest of the world will listen. You have the opportunity to encourage billions of humans to positively impact our planet with just the food on their plates.
Please do so, not for my sake but for the sake of our children and our planet. We only have one.
Thomas Edison (1847-1931) – Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.
Albert Einstein (1879-1955) – Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
