All life on the planet is sacred. What does this mean?
It means that all forms of life deserve to live as they wish to live. Every tree, bush, flower, insect, bird, amphibian, mammal, and human, as free as possible from human exploitation. For it is we, the human species, who have the most damaging impact on the world around us all. This is not “conspiracy theory” or “fear-mongering,” it is unbiased, substantiated fact.
From the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) chair, Sir Robert Watson:
The health of ecosystems on which we and all other species depend is deteriorating more rapidly than ever. We are eroding the very foundations of our economies, livelihoods, food security, health and quality of life worldwide.
The team of 145 expert authors from over 50 countries along with inputs from another 310 contributing authors working for three years, assessed changes over the past five decades. While the results are dire, there is a glimmer of hope, as stated by Mr. Watson:
The Report also tells us that it is not too late to make a difference, but only if we start now at every level from local to global. Through “transformative change,” nature can still be conserved, restored and used sustainably—this is also key to meeting most other global goals. By transformative change, we mean a fundamental, system-wide reorganization across technological, economic and social factors, including paradigms, goals and values.
Transformative change, not baby steps.
System-wide reorganization, not red to blue.
United States citizens need to start taking this seriously, no matter how much climate change skepticism exists.
The Humane Party has an answer and it lies with our two prospective candidates seeking nomination for the 2020 United States Presidency:
Mason, Robert is an entrepreneur, yogi, and plant-based lifestyle advocate, who was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. His plant-based journey has been swift and significant, from giving up meat in 2009 to going vegan in 2015 to running for US House of Representatives in the Texas 3rd District in 2018. Robert’s 2018 independent political platform featured plant-based economics, a tax plan with quality-of-life as its central focus, and evidence-based education. That platform was endorsed by both the Humane Party and the Green Party, and it serves as the core of his campaign today.
Robert holds a BA in International Studies & Political Science from the Virginia Military Institute and an MBA from Carnegie Mellon University with concentrations in entrepreneurship, finance, investment, marketing, and strategy. He has multiple yoga certifications and is a student of positive neuropsychology. In 2014, Robert co-founded Dataclay, an Austin-based software company specializing in the auto-customization of digital video, and he maintains a consulting position with OakTree Investment Advisors, a Pittsburgh-based registered investment advisor. Robert enlisted in the Navy after 9/11 and has professional experience in government contracting, consulting, and investment management.

Roberts, Clifton was the Humane Party’s first ever presidential candidate in 2016. He also served as the Party’s Staff Coordinator, as a volunteer, for two separate rotations. His vision for our country extends beyond our borders with a transformational plan for lasting peace, prosperity, and progress for the United States, as well as for the world. Representing the rights of all living beings, Roberts is a Constitutionalist who believes that this country’s promise of freedom, harmony, and happiness is deeply rooted in our government’s ability to be innovative, authentic, transparent, and compassionate.
With his commitment to ensuring equality under the law, cultivating excellence in education, ending unsound criminal investigation, trial, sentencing, and incarceration systems, and enhancing national security while eliminating practices that create profit motives to engage in war, Roberts offers a future-looking vision and set of ideas for voters to consider seriously.
Roberts has over 25 years of corporate organizational experience in finance, healthcare, and technology. He currently serves as a Director of Public Policy for the foremost data-centric corporation in the world, formerly managing ethics and compliance initiatives for over 100,000 employees.
As this is an internal primary, all Humane Party members who have already qualified will be receiving an email on October 1st with instructions on how to cast their vote for their preferred candidate. The voting period will last from October 1st until October 25th.
It is the time for transformative change to occur.
The party that will lead the United States is the Humane Party.
