Robert N. Smith is the Green Party candidate for Congress in the 1st Congressional District of Tennessee. He says, “I have a mission, to make this government really serve the people it governs.” And although the Bill of Rights has been steadily decimated since 9/11, I question how many of us understand that if we are unwilling to fight for our own rights, then we have relinquished our ability to fight for Animal Liberation. I support Mr. Smith’s efforts and encourage my colleagues to only support those candidates who represent the interests of the people and the animals. -Camille
