Steelman Concerned Washington D.C. Would Destroy Missouri Agriculture
June 6, 2012
Rolla, MO - Another salvo has been fired in the Humane Society's war on Missouri Agriculture. Having been run out of our state after their failed attempt to destroy the dog-breeding industry with Proposition B, HSUS has fled to Washington D.C., where they are pitching new nationwide restrictions on chicken farming that could eventually apply to all aspects of Missouri agriculture.
Disguised as a proposal to improve the living conditions of farm-raised chickens, Senate Bill 3239, introduced by Sen. Diane Feinstein, is actually a test project. If successful, it is a sign that Congress is ready, willing, and able to look down on middle America and our way of lifestyle, and regulate it out of existence.
United States Senate Candidate Sarah Steelman stated, "This same measure that is being proposed in Washington D.C. has already been enacted in California with disastrous consequences." Steelman continued, "Within one year of passage, the number of egg-laying chickens in California drastically decreased. Similar regulations on cattle, pigs, goats, sheep, or any other livestock could have the same outcome. I will fight HSUS and their allies tooth and nail to protect our farmers, our freedom and to preserve or rural way of life."
How do we know that the Humane Society will not stop after they 'improve the lives of chickens?'
We have their own words1:
"My goal is the abolition of all animal agriculture."
— John "J.P." Goodwin, HSUS grassroots coordinator
"If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would."
— Wayne Pacelle, president of HSUS
If elected to the Senate, Sarah Steelman will fight tirelessly to ensure that HSUS and their radical environmentalist allies in Washington D.C. fail in their efforts to end our Midwestern, agricultural lifestyle.
