  • Fellow Human Beings, US Citizens,

  • brothers and sisters of the Humane Party.

  • The Humane Party Board of Directors,

  • All compassionates and agents of root cause change;

  • Those seeking the end of the exploitation of other species by humans;

  • Those seeking the elimination of the torture, mutilation,

  • and slaughter of our non-human animal friends;

  • And, who seek the granting of legal person-hood

  • to all sentient beings;

  • Those leading their lives in accordance with

  • what it means to be a humane person;

  • Those seeking to end the non-emergency based use of toxic fuels;

  • Those seeking to eliminate systems and practices

  • that create profit motives to incarcerate people

  • and to keep them incarcerated;

  • To those seeking to defend our air, land and water resources

  • against on-going contamination and depletion,

  • as well as ban genetic modification of animals, food or any item

  • designed by the universe to be consumed by humans or other animals;

  • And to those who are mature enough to understand

  • that establishing justice and ensuring domestic tranquility,

  • as envisioned by the founding architects of this common wealth,

  • are best achieved by a peaceful, resolute, and skillful approach

  • to conflict disagreement and (by) cooperation.

  • It is my great honor and passionate sense of duty to you,

  • that I accept the Humane Party's nomination for the office

  • of the president of the United States of America.

  • Without hesitation, I accept this nomination with an inspired heart,

  • with a determined mind, a soul filled with hope,

  • and a body free of, for the last 18 years of my life,

  • any deceased, murdered, or tortured soul.

  • I accept this nomination with an over-arching objective:

  • To embody your voice;

  • To manifest your unwavering desire to change our country's course;

  • To personify your vision of a passionately compassionate nation;

  • To realize your dream of a nation that leverages

  • the collective intelligence of all its citizens;

  • That will finally position our country as a force that

  • leads with intellectual power instead of coercive strength;

  • That will finally situate our country to lead

  • with moral and ethical might,

  • instead of leading with the compulsion and impulse to fight.

  • I would like to be your voice.

  • As I am the voice of over 70 billion non-human animals

  • that are tortured and murdered every year on our lands.

  • Our lands where only small amounts of remorse

  • can be found in doing so;

  • remorse and compassion only from people like you and me.

  • Abe Lincoln was quoted as saying,

  • “I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights.

  • That is the way of a whole human being.”

  • With this in mind, like you, I am a voice of the Humane Party.

  • A party that offers you, me, our non-human animal friends

  • and citizens that are naive or unaware

  • of the issues it addresses, and the solutions it offers,

  • an inspired and refreshing platform;

  • A platform of which offers the culmination

  • of our collective intelligence;

  • A visionary and practical platform to fight for;

  • A platform to live by;

  • And a platform that I would surely die for;

  • Albert Einstein once stated that the definition of insanity

  • is doing the same thing over and over again,

  • while expecting different results.

  • You and I have witnessed the reality of this definition:

  • Every four years, we are promised change,

  • and every four years, those promises are exchanged.

  • Every four years, we are offered a choice,

  • and four years later, we have lost our voice.

  • History has taught us that the winning candidates

  • in presidential elections of the past

  • had a very compelling story told to the most people.

  • Well, we the people of the Humane Party have quite a story.

  • In this story, you are the protagonist.

  • The hero facing a giant of a Goliath, on an epic journey

  • with a set of challenges interwoven throughout a story...

  • a story in search of a happy ending;

  • A better story than any other political party

  • that exists in our political and social landscape today.

  • Legacies are meant for us to discern,

  • just as culture is preserved for us to learn;

  • Nonetheless, legacies and cultures are meant to,

  • and rightfully should, evolve;

  • Evolve as we are facing unprecedented problems and challenges

  • that we have no choice but to resolve.

  • I intend fully to represent you and amplify your voice;

  • To demonstrate to the people of this country

  • the root cause effects of our mistreatment

  • of our non-human animal friends;

  • That this mistreatment gives rise to our aggression;

  • Gives birth to our lack of reasoning and understanding;

  • That as a people, our continued consumption of death and turmoil

  • soils our souls and darkens our conscious;

  • leeches onto our logic, and compromises our compassion.

  • It is my intention to re-energize the marketplace of ideas;

  • To expand and enhance collaboration

  • between public and private sectors,

  • in the areas of science, technology, and government;

  • And to utilize, fully, these partnerships to determine

  • root cause and solve issues;

  • Resolutions that will instigate much needed global change

  • and evolve our national security;

  • And will acclimate our citizens to evolving economics and eco-systems,

  • so that we can bridge hope to action.

  • Therefore, I ask that you stand with me

  • as a free human being;

  • Stand with me as your presidential candidate,

  • and in doing so, I promise you that,

  • although I have never been a politician,

  • I am fully vested as a citizen,

  • in the direction of our country;

  • And I own, just as much as those currently in power,

  • the management and outcomes of our political, social,

  • and economic discretion;

  • I also promise you that I will challenge, every day,

  • my intellect to engage scientists, philosophers,

  • government & technology leaders, and you;

  • Engage you to be courageous in ignoring

  • the distractions from critical issues;

  • To figure out the root cause to issues;

  • And consistently create, welcome,

  • and embrace dialogue and conversation,

  • to teach our children what it truly means

  • to be humane and peaceful;

  • While also learning from them,

  • learning from our children how important it is

  • for you and me to maintain a child's sense of innocence,

  • especially regarding animals;

  • And the importance of preserving

  • a child's sense of imagination and curiosity

  • in how we interact with others;

  • In doing this, you and I can collectively design and develop

  • solutions that will work and stick.

  • Let's do this together!

  • Thank you for your time

  • and I look forward to working with you.

Fellow Human Beings, US Citizens,
