“This is a person who perceives that all animals are mere possessions, or, commodities. A few days ago I was listening to his off camera discussion with Hannity where they were discussing Romney's horses. He, of course, knew the breed of the horses but apparently didn't know if his horse was female or male since he kept referring to her or him as "it." "It" is merely some “thing" he can talk about with other elitists to affirm his place among them. Dogs (non-humans) are of equal value and concern to Mitt Romney as the luggage on the car roof.
He is of the same ilk as people who own and race horses or dogs then when the "possessions" are of no use to them anymore they just get rid of them. This is not a whole, deep, or sensitive human being. He is wealthy, shallow and disconnected from the realities that face most humans and all animals. He seeks only status; that is the only reason he wants to be president. We should be seeking sensitive, smart leaders who deeply care about all humans and all animals, including caring about this planet as a whole.”

“I am always confused when people align the word belief with veganism as in " ... never going to find a partner who shared my beliefs." Veganism has nothing to do with belief and everything to do with sensitivity and compassion and truth and reality based thinking. Being vegan simply means making a reasonable effort to avoid being the cause of someone's suffering and death. The statement should be written like this " ... never going to find a partner who is sensitive and aware enough to make compassionate choices."”
