Is this the best you got, candidates? Because if it is, you’ll be in for another rude awakening in 2020. In 2016 we had ISIS and the economy to worry about, not cows and straws. We were on the edge of an abyss ready to fall in and Trump’s policies brought us back. Surely you can come up with a more serious platform to run on aside from cows and straws. You look silly.
Nobody likes to be told what, where, and how we can eat. It’s common sense which the candidates seem to lack. They live in their elite world and it’s all they know. For the presidential hopefuls to think they’ll garner votes by food shaming us is a fool’s errand. Whether you’re Democrat or Republican we all care about our meals. Some of us are vegetarians, vegans, and meateaters; but what we aren’t is open to government officials putting restrictions or guilt on what we eat. Just ask Mayor De Blasio.
The hopefuls like Boot-edge-edge says he will ban plastic straws and shame people who eat hamburgers. Tell that to McDonalds and the cattle ranchers. Restaurants and bars can’t serve some drinks without a straw such as a milkshake, blended margarita, or rootbeer float. Kamala Harris thinks straws should be banned, as well. They’re just pandering to the far leftist environmentalists for votes. They don’t have common sense.
Vegans like to guilt trip us into giving up dairy products and meat. Vegan is a fad which is unhealthy, but they refuse to admit it. Vegan diet can cause hair loss and weight gain. I’ve seen it. They pretend they’re eating that way due to “cruelty to animals” but that’s a crock. They just want to be different and part of a cult. The vegan cult. Vegans look down on meateaters and love shaming restaurants that don’t have a vegan entree. I’ve seen that too. Now politicians are trying to shame us into giving up meat.
We all need protein but the vegan diet doesn’t have enough protein in it. And some mock meat items are just as unhealthy. That’s why God created cows, poultry, and fish. These vegan candidates are wimps IMO. I don’t want to see a man who can’t barbecue meat. Real men don’t eat vegan. It’s just unseemly unless he’s got a serious health issue that doesn’t allow meat and fish. Everything in moderation is how one should eat; but to have the government getting involved is unAmerican.
So candidates, get out of my kitchen and grocery store. Find a more serious platform to run on. We’ll buy what we want, eat what we want, and vote for whom we want. You’re not our doctor or mother. You won’t be getting our votes by siccing the food police or guilt trips on us. And Buttigeig, you stay out of my kitchen, stop preaching what God would think, and I’ll stay out of your bedroom. Touche. 😉
