Pete is a 30 year old entrepreneur who lives on Long Island. He was raised in a liberal bubble, and never felt like he fit in from the time he was a kid, up until reaching early adulthood.
After starting his first business at the age of 25, Pete quickly realized the issues government bureaucracy posed to small business owners across the state. After the DNC screwed Bernie Sanders in 2016, Pete started paying attention to politics, and quickly realized that a lot of the things he learned in school had an incredibly biased and Leftist spin on them.
By the time the election came around, Pete decided not to follow what most of his friends and family did, and he voted against Hillary. Since then, Pete has become a Libertarian-Conservative, and believes that a reduction in the size of government is the only way the United States will begin to undo a lot of the issues that social welfare programs and government dependency has had on the public.
