    Florida Alert! Proposed Constitutional Amendment 13 is a Trojan Horse

    You Should OPPOSE AMENDMENT 13 in the General Election
    Amendment 13 to the Florida Constitution is being characterized as an amendment to end wagering (betting) on greyhound races in Florida, but it goes much further than that.
    If Amendment 13 is passed, extreme animal rights organizations will have a new constitutional standard to challenge any and all activities they find objectionable. In short, many suspect their first action will be to immediately begin work to ban all hunting and fishing.
    Amendment 13 includes the phrase:
    “The humane treatment of animals is a fundamental value of the people of the State of Florida.” That language will not appear on the ballot BUT IT IS IN THE AMENDMENT.
    Since reasonable people don’t want animals treated inhumanely, at first blush many Floridians would agree with that statement in general terms. However, there is a vast difference between what the public believes is “inhumane” and what animal rights extremists groups and their supporters would call “inhumane.”
    The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), is the lead organization pushing for Amendment 13’s passage. HSUS opposes hundreds of common and traditional activities involving animals because they claim they are “inhumane.”
    In fact, the list of activities HSUS and other animal extremist organizations find objectionable is huge and includes hunting, fishing, farming, animal husbandry, marine parks and more. That’s what this is really about.
    Those groups even claim that animals shouldn’t be owned as pets because it’s inhumane.
    In short, Amendment 13 is not really about greyhound racing, it’s a front for much more.
    Clearly the intent is to establish a legal foothold in the Florida Constitution that they can use to go after legitimate activities, like hunting, that they don’t like.
    Whether you are voting Absentee, Early Voting or at the Polls on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, please oppose Amendment 13.

              I am a poll worker, and after training last night, I was given a copy of my sample ballot.

              All it will be saying on the ballot is:
              "Ends Dog Racing

              Phases out commercial dog racing in connection with wagering by 2020. Other gaming activities are not affected"



              How can that be allowed to be printed without the entire amendment language before the voters?

              Amendment 9

              Prohibits offshore drilling and vaping in enclosed workplaces. WTF does one have to do with another? More back alley politics
