Who Am I?

I read this via another person's blog and truly believe we are repeating history in the worst kinda way.

Please read this line by line (do not speed read or scan) to the very end.

Who am I?

I was born in one country; raised in another. My father was born in another country. I was not his only child. He fathered several children with numerous women. I became very close to my mother as my father showed no interest in me.

Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a book idolizing my father -- not my mother.
Later in life, questions arose over my real name. My birth records were sketchy. No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.

I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my new country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs and didn't follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.

I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them. That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and embarked on a new career.

I wrote a book about my struggles growing up. It was clear to those who read my memoirs, that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child. I became active in local politics in my 30's, then, with help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene in my 40's as a candidate for national office.

They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything. I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization.
Yet, I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks. I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances. This bolstered my ego.

At first, my political campaign focused on my country's foreign policy. I was very critical of my country in the last war and seized every opportunity to bash my country. But, what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country's economy.

I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better, and every poor person would be fed and housed for free.  I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess. It was the free market, banks and corporations. I decided to start making citizens hate them and, if they became envious of those who did well, the plan was clinched tight.

I called my plan "A People's Campaign." That sounded good to everyone. I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics and was able to gain widespread popular support.

I knew that if I merely offered the people 'hope,' together we could change our country and the world. So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor and ignorant to include "persecuted minorities."

My true views were not widely known and I kept them unknown until after I became my nation's leader. I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed if they had simply read my writings and examined those people with whom I associated. I'm glad they didn't. I had the press with me.
Then I became the most powerful man in the world. And then the world learned the truth.

Who am I?


If you were thinking of SOMEONE ELSE, you should be scared -- very scared!
