Sound like anybody you know?
Hello, I am a candidate for the highest office in this land. You may know me and even support me, many people do. I have a very recognizable name, and though people sometimes have fun at my expense for the way I comb over my hair, I have had a very successful campaign and for a lot of reasons.
People love me and are drawn to me through my great charisma. You see I am not part of the political establishment and as such I can brashly criticize the current administration as weak and feeble. Promulgating that we need to "save" this great Republic.
I have succeeded in marginalizing individuals or groups that oppose me. I have effectively de-humanized an entire race of people. People that cross our borders illegally. People that don't speak our language, or share our religion. People that are distinctly different than the proud founders of this great society. People that are thieves, rapists, drug dealers and terrorists.
And let me tell you I have a plan to deal with them. So let me please introduce myself, and vote for me. My name? Adolf Hitler.
