I remember asking my friends if they had ever met a vegan republican...no one had. Then I think of all the Peace Corps volunteers I know who returned to America and became vegans/vegetarians. It causes me to think diet choices like being a vegan express political and social views as well. The saying "voting with your wallet" comes to mind. Not sure being a vegan can be seen as voting against capitalism but there's definitely a correlation.
The question is what can we do? I am not-so-secretly waiting for a moment/group to form so I can throw my support behind something and protest. I'm also keeping tabs on the new Coffee Party movement to see what it does. In the mean time, I'm looking into the list of actions recommended here. My progressing career path in the non-profit industry puts a smile on my face.
