Pleased To Meet You! Hope Ya Guessed My Name

See If You Can Guess Who I Am...

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. My mother died at an
early age from cancer.

Later in life, questions arose over my real name.

My birth records were sketchy and no one was
able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth

I grew up practicing one faith but converted
to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in
my country, but I practiced non-traditional
beliefs & 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 I embarked on a new

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 as a candidate for
national office in my 40s.. They said I had a
golden tongue and could talk anyone into
anything.. That reinforced my conceit.

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 & housed for free.

I knew which group was responsible for getting
us into this mess. It was the free market,
banks & corporations.. I decided to start
making citizens hate them and if they were
envious of others who did well, the plan was
clinched tight.

I called mine "A People's Campaign" and that
sounded good to all people.

I was the surprise candidate because I emerged
from outside the traditional path of politics
& 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"
like the Jews. My true views were not widely
known and I needed to keep 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 I associated with.

I'm glad they didn't. Then I became the most
powerful man in the world. And the world
learned the truth.

*Who am I? *
