Give Back Presidents Day to CSUSM
When did American tradition become secondary in the lives of free men and women? In California, a century old tradition known as Presidents Day, also known as George Washington's Birthday, has been dealt an unacceptable blow and devalued as a day of reverence and virtue. Originally established in 1885 as a day of remembrance, George Washington's Birthday is an established federal holiday, revered by the government, political leaders, and other establishments across the nation...except California, where Cal State universities will not stand by the Founding Father and other leaders of the free world. Make no mistake, that without these great men, without George Washington, there would likely be no United States, no California, and no civil rights movement leaders, such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Cesar Chavez, both of whom reserve a day of remembrance for their incredible lifes and the impact they had upon the American people. Why then is it allowable for a policy to be implemented that would seek to devalue and deprioritize a day that should otherwise be respected by all Americans and any who would seek citizenship and freedom within our borders? I would ask that any citizen or individual that can see the issue with this unpatriotic policy, to stand up for a man, and men, who have held the office of President of the United States. Ones who have guided a great nation, lead the world through war and hostility, spread freedom and hope to millions and continue to make the world a great place. Do your part as a Patriot and as an American! My goal is to reach 300 signatures before I pursue further actions, such as presenting the petition to local media and contacting senators and congressmen, so please help to push this petition out to the public! Every person matters and together we can change this policy and take back our America!! If you wish to contact me directly please leave a note in the comment section and I'll happily reply! Thank all of you for everything!
