Not So Silent Sunday: Protect Our Wildlife

Frequently Feline is not intended as a political blog. It was created as a resource for all animal lovers. Nevertheless, as an avid animal lover myself, I feel strongly that I have the responsibility to share information from time to time that may appear to have "political" overtones. In writing about pending legislations which may help protect all animals, and even, from time to time asking folks to take action to ensure the welfare of horses, dogs, cats, birds and all living creatures, my mission is to disseminate important information.
Therefore, I walk a fine line this morning. In posting this entry. It is not my intention to take any political sides. However, I feel a strong need to share with our readers, some disturbing issues that will strongly affect our wildlife by putting them at great risk of great suffering and even possible extinction in an area of our beautiful country that remains pristine.
I don't know about you, but I passionately feel that the folks who will soon be taking over the reins of leadership of our beautiful country must, as part of their voting record, have demonstrated their concern and support for our environment. Their intention to ensure the protection of our endangered species must be visible. Our wildlife is precious and crucial in maintaining Nature's natural balance.
I personally feel that it is a "no brainer" to inform myself with all the facts to make wise decisions, which will affect the future of our endangered species. The animals cannot speak. We are charged with the responsibility to protect them.
Learn more about where our candidates stand on these issues and their voting records. The rest is up to you.
Will your concern about environmental issues play an important part as you cast your ballot on November 4, 2008? Leave a comment and share your thoughts.
