As a new session of Congress approaches (as well as an election year), write to your officials to remind them who they’re working for and to let them know you’re watching. Make a citizen’s demand for more pro-animal votes.

Many other members of Congress of received failing grades of 50 % and below. To find out who they are and to see where your state Representatives and Senators stand on animals go to:

Interesting Fact: Note the political party of the pro-animal voters. The overwhelming majority of pro-animal voting records belong to Democrats. 7 out of 10 Democrats voted pro-animal in 2005-06, while only 3 out of 10 Republicans voted pro-animal. That means 70% of all Republicans vote against bills that protect animals.

Thanks WK l. That's interesting. John Ensign of Nevada is a Veternarian. Though a Republican he is one of the only Reps that support almost all my petitions. Not to bad huh!
I have Never had a need for a Republican until now...

All the Wildfires and animal abuses from the Illegals are being promoted by turning USA in North Mexico.

And I feel all the Billions of $$$ being "lost" has gone to Democrats, and Republicans, overseas bank accts.  Almost all Democrats are for Illegals and Against USA.

With the loss of USA there won't be ANY saving of ANY of God's Babies. ahhhh  what a quandary!  I am soooooo frustrated at all this manipulation and Traitorism every since perversion has started.  And perversion amongst people means perversion towards the Babies. ahhhh

ps and vets are the ones we Animal Compassionates fight against in Torture Labs...so vets are Hardly Animal Lovers.  They even send the Babies bodies to renent factories and made into Pet Food.
