Convince Mayor Pete Buttigieg to grow a beard

This petition had 111 supporters

In 1860 when Abraham Lincoln was running for president, a letter from an eleven year old girl named Grace Bedell convinced him to grow his iconic beard. After growing a beard, Lincoln won the election in a landslide, going on to win the civil war, abolish slavery, and to become widely regarded as the greatest president in United States history.

History repeats itself. Our nation is divided and difficult times are coming. We have  a candidate who could grow out a beard and become an inspirational leader. Like Bedell's letter, this petition could be the tipping point...

Please sign this petition to ask Mayor Pete Buttigieg to grow his beard out and to become the President we need.


Dear Pete,

After seeing the photoshopped images of you with a beard [1], we believe you should grow your beard out.

We find that a beard adds immense wisdom, manliness, and warmth to your persona. This look would help you become the truly formidable leader we need to win the presidency and heal the United States of America.

Good luck, we believe in you.

P.S. Please don't go for the mustache look...
