Dear Next President,
Many animals are suffering from animal cruelty (PETA). There should be a more humane way to kill animals. These animals are tortured and gruesomely killed. They live in a cramped pen with many other animals. They should be free ranged. “Late born” chickens are ground up alive since the factory farm has no use for them. These chickens don’t even know what is happening when they are plucked alive and their lives are full of torture and despair. People need to realize that animals are grounded up, beaten, separated from their parents, and killed in a way that will give anyone nightmares.
You are the most powerful person in the country. You should not only call out these factory farms but also propose legislation that would require animals to be free ranged and only harvested after they die of natural causes. Even though this was not an issue that was discussed during the campaign, I believe that many people care deeply about how animals are treated. Your voice matters more than anyone else in this country, so I hope that in your first term you make this a top priority. According to the (ASPCA), “In polling, 94% of Americans agree that animals raised for food deserve to live free from abuse and cruelty”. Many activists are ready to support you; you just have to show that you're on the same page as them.
