A special thank you to my team member, Connor.

OUR LEADERS THINK WE CAN’T BE TRUSTED

 

We are all humans, but it seems to me like our leaders don’t currently believe that is so. In the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, that statement is made clear, and any individual’s efforts to take that away from us should be met with full resistance. Keep in mind, this declaration was co-chaired by Eleanor Roosevelt and was eventually adopted by each and every nation within the United Nations Coalition by 1949. This was a time period where the world was out for blood, a time where people were executed by the millions for their race and religion, a time where hundreds of thousands of men fought and died for the rights that we as citizens get to enjoy today.  The freedom to open a business, the freedom to converse freely in public, freedoms similar to our bill of rights. Are we going to throw the sacrifices of these great leaders away?

I am in this fight today because I see our current way of life being destroyed. Once a day, I look at what the news is saying and realize things just keep getting worse and worse. Julie Radford, a fellow student at MSU approached me one day with an incredible proposition.

“Let’s step up to the plate and go to bat for America.”

“Let’s make some noise, let’s get some numbers, let’s put boots on the ground and fight for our freedoms.”

We immediately put together a team and got right to work setting up our infrastructure and recruiting team members, and now look at us. We have a family of 12,500 in less than 7 days. The issue that Julie and I came across is that this isn’t just a battle we got ourselves into, this is a war. A war that starts with the people who pull the strings of our elected officials then makes its way into public institutions and before we know it ends up indoctrinating our children. Here’s what you, the supporter have to understand. We are in a long game versus a short game war. Our opposition seems to believe that our immediate health and safety concerns are grounds for the immediate uprooting of our rights that keep us as Americans safe.

Why is it that when we google ways the US leads the world, we only find negative details about our beautiful nation? Are we not the nation that saved our global population from world domination? Twice? Are we not the nation whose industrial revolution lead to the development of health and industrial standards in every developed country? Are we not the nation whose economy carries the rest of the world on its shoulders? What about social values, all these independent news organizations love to promote how awful this nation is but look at the global coalition we’ve put together to stop sexual abuse, gender, and race discrimination, and many more areas that other nations won’t even dare to look in the direction of.

My point here is that America is a world leader. And why is that? Because we, the citizens, aren’t afraid to do things differently. Land of the free, home of the brave, the base of all things outside the box. Truly, the US steps foot in new territories that other nations refuse to do, because that’s just who we are, in culture, life, and in our liberties/ virtues.

This is a message to Anita Cassetta, to Laurie Felton, to Jeff Mason, to every parent of a young child, every front-line employee scared to return to work, every military service member in fear for their life. My name is Peter Sarotte, and being the American that I am, I am going outside the box to find a solution for you, because clearly inside the box solutions are not working. This message is getting quite long, so just know I am working through exhaustion, working through the negativity, working through the burnt bridges, to fix this nation, at 21 years old. AND I AM NOT ALONE. THEY WANT US TO FEEL LIKE THAT.

 

The following are my steps thus far…

After the release of my petition and the overwhelming influx of support, my personal information was sent to me by an anonymous account. An individual with access to the dean’s list at MSU and all my prior social media history has tried to silence me. This individual found me the second day into my campaign and threatened me with indirect notions of harm and exposure. His or her final comment to me was, “Excuse me Peter, what human rights violation is being violated.”

Well anonymous bully, here’s three.

Article 12: “No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honor or reputation”.

Article 25: ”Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing, and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control”

*Article 26, the most important one: ”Everyone has the right to education. Education should be free, at least in the elementary and fundamental stages…… higher education shall be equally accessible to all on the basis of merit”.

 

ALL OF THESE ARE BEING VIOLATED AND I AM FED UP. YOU SHOULD BE TOO. I have lots to say so show up at the Capitol tomorrow. Friday, August 6th, from 3-6, we are going to show President Stanley, and any other world leader what happens when you try to take away our freedoms and our rights as HUMANS. Stand up, Patriots. It’s time.
