The Snow Job in Montana Will Melt

CHICAGO, (EWA) - With their vote to resume the barbaric practice of horse slaughter in the State of Montana, seven politicians may have ended once promising careers. Senators Terry Murphy, Taylor Brown, Ken Hansen, Verdell Jackson, Rick Ripley, Bradley Hamlett and Donald Steinbeisser should be removed from office. The Equine Welfare Alliance (EWA) urges that they draw opponents in their next election. Moreover, we promise to mobilize thousands of volunteers to assure their defeat.

Just ask former Senator Conrad Burns what happens when we mobilize, even in ranch country. After he foisted several outrageous secret pro-slaughter laws on the public which he attached to certain to pass legislation at the 11th hour in Congress, the public had enough. People power mobilized to remove this relic from the smoke filled rooms of Congress and he was defeated in his bid for re-election.

Tens of thousands of humanitarians across Montana are opposed to horse slaughter. Survey after survey has shown that more than 70 percent of all Americans oppose the practice, where living horses have their throats slit and are dismembered while hanging upside down as they bleed to death to feed Frenchmen hungry for their poisonous chemically tainted meat. A poll on a respected on-line paper in Montana on the day of the vote, reflected 76% of readers against building a plant. Our volunteers are motivated, computer savvy and willing to spend money to support the candidates of their choice. Moreover, some national political action committees share our belief that horses should not suffer.

At a time when Americans are finding themselves struggling to make ends meet and joining the ranks of the unemployed, we question the wisdom of wasting tax payer dollars on the legislative efforts and building a plant that cannot operate legally in America for a cruel business that serves the owners of less than 2% of the horse population.

We question the wisdom of bringing yet another foreign business back to our country that does not offer any economic stimulus to the state of Montana or their citizens. The only sector to benefit from such a business will be the lawyers in Montana. Reserve your court dockets now. Montana will find themselves in litigation for years trying to collect pollution, abuse and cruelty violations. Just as history has proven over and over again in Illinois and Texas, Montana will be the newest doormat to America for the Belgians who own the pollution factories that breed disease and stench in the communities where they are located.

Finally, as former Sen. Burns learned, the highly motivated and computer savvy citizens who are opposed to the outrage of horse slaughter make a habit of going to the ballot box. We call for the defeat of every self serving politician who votes to bring the awful practice of horse slaughter back to our shores. We are motivated, we can raise millions in small donations and we will use it.

Those issues didn't get defeat Conrad in the last election, they weren't even mentioned. There's a survey on the Helena Independent Record web site that is currently in favor of the horse slaughter legislation. Just because the legislation passes doesn't mean we will have a slaughter plant in the state any time soon, it just makes it a little easier from a regulatory standpoint.

Yep- I agree....Conrad was a crook- and got ousted because of it- but most of it was do to Abramoff- and his lobbyiest connections-and his vote being for sale to the highest bidder-altho then none of it had to do with horse slaughter or horse slaughter legislation in Montana :roll:
I'm sure the reason they are attacking him now is because he is the head lobbyiest for the AQHA ( which I question their wisdom at for tying their association with such a crook :???: )- and the AQHA's continued support of humane slaughtering of horses- and horse slaughter plants......
