In recognition of the Humane Party’s 10th birthday, here’s a brief account of some milestones from the organization’s first decade. … More
Have you ever thought, “If only I were President of the United States”? Imagine all the possibilities, the changes that could be made. To end suffering as much as humanely possible. To see liberation and equality for all. How about bringing these thoughts to fruition? The Humane Party is holding for the first time in its existence a Presidential Primary for the 2020 Presidential election.
Carnist candidates swept elections in all 50 states on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. While the Democrat-Republicans retain their exclusive hegemony in both houses of the U.S. Congress as well as in all 50 state legislatures, more than one billion animals are tortured, mutilated, raped, molested, kidnapped, and killed each year in the U.S. These violent and perverse acts remain legal as a direct result of Democrat-Republican political supremacy at the state and federal level. However, ramp-up for the 2020 U.S. Senate, House, and Presidential races begins immediately. There is no time for delay. Environmentalists, animal rights activists, vegans, and abolitionists who wish to halt and reverse this process are invited to run for office.
A museum and convention hall commemorating the Underground Railroad has opened in Niagara Falls, New York, to honor the courage, sacrifice, and determination of the many people who helped escapees in their journey to freedom prior to abolition of human slavery in the United States.
The clandestine network that helped people escape from bondage in the U.S. represents an early American example of direct action which can be viewed, in that regard, as an antecedent to the Animal Liberation Front of today.
In September 2017, the U.S.’s national debt exceeded $20 trillion for the first time ever. Now the accumulated national debt exceeds $21 trillion. Millennials, and generations of Americans who have not yet been born, are the ones who have been “left holding the bag” of Democrat-Republican profligacy.
On August 1st, the U.S. Senate—which has remained in the exclusive control of Democrat-Republicans, without interruption, for over a century—voted overwhelmingly against a measure that would have protected the natural evolution of the word “milk.”
On June 4, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in the case of Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd., et al. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission et al. This ruling demonstrates the continuing need for the Equal Rights Amendment II.
This year marks the 170th anniversary of the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848. In recognition of the convention organizers’ contribution to the cause of equality under the law, the Humane Party dedicates National Civil Rights Day 2018 to the organizers of the Seneca Falls Convention.
What are our federal and state lands? They are those pristine places where the deer and antelope play. Songs of yesteryear enshrined in what are known as our National and State Parks, Forests, Refuges and Monuments. Whether here in The United States or in any other country around the world, these areas are refuge.

Mountain lions (Puma concolor) are remarkably reclusive apex predators adept at avoiding humans. When hemmed in by paved roads and high fences, however, mountain lions are often forced to interact with us—along with our vehicles, poisons, bullets, and centuries old misunderstandings about their true nature—and such encounters seldom end well for the cats. The good news is that the public is becoming increasingly aware of the impacts we are having on our fellow travelers, and efforts are being made to reduce puma mortality in certain locales. Recent events involving the life and times of a puma living in the Santa Monica Mountain National Recreation Area above Malibu, California, serve as a good example.
The federal budget proposed by the White House has been public for months and has elicited numerous discussions. Yet, to what degree are we aware and informed of the details of the budget? The campaign promise of a border wall is included, costing tax payers 3 billion dollars. The budget also makes reductions to most departments. Overall, the variance is of almost 200% (198.2%) of reductions for the entire federal budget. Yet, the 2018 budget is $7.8 billion above 2017’s.
