The Creation of Donald Trump: A Lesson in Distilling Fear and Hate in America

By David "Bodie" Bailey

If Donald J. Trump did not exist in America the boiling undercurrent of hate, and fear that swirls around us everyday would have spawned him; to represent the will of those who need a manifestation of the [Ugly American]. He is the living breathing corporeal being that acts like the picture of [Dorian Gray]; he will carry the sins of all the trolls, the haters for hate's sake, the willingly ignorant; the venial who would rather not think, or reason; who would not pull themselves out the pit of desperation they live in. They seem to prefer the dark, dank areas, they only live to share their ideas developed by an alternate reality that is all around us; to convert the innocent and build an army to try to bring all of us down. Whoa this sounds like I'm talking about the Anti-Christ; no not quite: so weird it just seemed to flow from my fingers.

Let me slow down a bit, and tell you where I come from. I really did not want to write this, but I felt compelled to do so; it's not my style to voice my personal political feelings to the World. Like everybody else, I have opinions; but I also do a vast amount of research to help express them; in a balanced way. I have told many people, I have spoken to in the past on many subjects; you don't have to believe me, go look it up for yourself. I said this long before there was an Internet and Google, to quickly check information. In fact I'm going to use a technique in this piece to help you fully check out things out. I will put these [brackets] around a word or a phrase that needs an in-depth look at; please do so. This is a teaching aid to help shorten the length of the story; so I can keep this at a reasonable length, it will still be long. So [Google] the words or phrases I bracket as you read; right click and Google, then back to the text. A friend of mine, a college professor used this while reading books; to check the meanings of words he was not familiar with.

I'm a average White American, with some college, no degree, a registered Democrat since 1976, a gun owner; I'm not a NRA member, because I have some bones to pick with them; I have voted for Democrats, Republicans, and Independents: I think politically I lean to the reasonable. I am open minded and have a passion for history. I am a Christian, but I don't follow any particular church; it's a personal relationship. I understand and use real science, real evidence, real facts; one of the first things I did as a child was to learn how to read, before I went to school. I love the biography of Abraham Lincoln; he was mostly an [autodidact], I am also. I did do well in school, but my passion was the library where the kept the knowledge; you know that place with all the books. The good thing about a library is they have sections, like fiction, non-fiction, biographies, and reference, you know what you're reading.

The Internet has one major flaw, everything is equal; it's takes you the reader to figure out what's fiction or nonfiction. Depending on your personal biases it is very easy to be led down some strange paths. [Critical thinking] is the key, but it is also the most difficult way; it takes work, most people don't want to take the time; to do the research effort; they farm it out to others. I do massive amounts research; I learned how to learn early; I don't do research because I have to: I do it because I like it. In the end, like the old saying "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink". The same can be said about learning; you can read, but if don't know how to understand; you can't learn.

And now to the meat of the matter; if you want an understanding of how Donald Trump became the leader of the great Republican Party; you can't do it without a history lesson. The Republican Party; the Party of Abraham Lincoln; who said simply "As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy. Whatever differs from this, to the extent of the difference, is no

democracy." 1858.

Lincoln had to deal with the [Original Sin] of the United States of America: slavery. To get all the States to ratify the Constitution; the founding fathers held their noses and codified into law; that slavery would be allowed into this new Country: the Country that stated in the preamble of the Constitution "All Men are Created Equal". They got around this by making just one group of humans; Africans, black people; something less than human. We are lucky that some of the founders were smart enough to keep the Constitution living. Though many people believe that the Constitution is dead; as if carved in stone by God himself. It's why they allowed [Amendments] to be passed; they knew things would evolve. This is part of the greatness of the ideals of America; we evolve.

The Civil War was one of those tests of change; the Country was growing and the slave States feared losing their human work force; they saw the writing on the wall. They separated from the United States, but they never quite got the Motto: of the United States; ["E Pluribus Unum'] or [From Many, One]. It's on the money with the second motto; "In God We Trust". The South; the slave states attacked one of their own; Fort Sumter: their own brothers and this started the war. We all know how this war ended; after four of the bloodiest years in the history of America.

The Constitution was changed; with the spilling of too much blood. The South was family again, but not everything went smoothly. The freed slaves had to be absorbed into the whole Country; many if not most Americans had problems with that: now local laws were enacted to marginalize people of different races. In fact the punitive laws expanded to marginalize people who were deemed to be not; 'Us', they were the; 'Others'. Blacks, Asians, Native Americans, people of Latin descent, or anyone who was 'Mixed Race'; they were not us! They; the 'Others'; went from total exclusion; to separate, but equal; it stayed that way about 100 years, but they still were not truly equal.

During those 100 years groups came into existence for the sole purpose of keeping the; 'Others' down; you can't be on top without keeping the 'Others' down. The [Ku Klux Klan] and later the [German American Bund] or the American Nazi Party; who were at their greatest power under the banners of George Washington; waving over the group rally: their motto was [America First]. Just before the bombing of Pearl Harbor [Charles Lindbergh] spoke; one of our greatest heroes; he said almost as the bombs dropped in Hawaii; "The British and the Jewish Races for reasons which are not American, wish to involve us in the war. Their greatest danger to this to this country lies in their large ownership and influence in our motion pictures, our press, our radio, and our government": He never was forgiven for saying this.

World War 2 was largely fought to stop [Fascism]; that craze that was sweeping the World: it was born out of hard economic times and the constant drum beat of the 'Others'; being the enemy; and as always a [scapegoat] of choice.

The United States of America became a World Power after the second World War; we became the dominant power largely because we had a monopoly on the Atomic Bomb; at least for a while. We struggled with our new found power. We wanted to set an example to all mankind; how the World could be a better place, but we also found out; and sometimes it was pointed out to us: we needed to get our own act together. We interned Japanese Americans by the thousands; almost all of them, because they were different; they looked like the Enemy, the; 'Others'. We did not intern the Germans; the Italian Americans, because they looked like; Us. The government checked them out on an individual basis. Our favorite group to exclude; the African Americans were still held separate; they fought in the war; they fought very well, but in segregated units. Like the Japanese Americans; after they took a loyalty oath; in separate units they both disproportionately won more medals than many other units: as to prove they were 'Real Americans'.

The [Cold War] took hold over us for fifty plus years; in that tug of war; it's cost was thousands of lives, and trillions of dollars; we became hardened. The Communist threat led us down; many paths that we don't like to remember. We had allies that neither shared nor ever wanted be like us; we did things that was justified by the same logic that we used; to work with our now number one enemy the Soviet Union; who was one of our allies just years before. And; the East Germans built a wall, an excellent wall to keep their people in; and our ideas out.

The best propaganda for the Communist block in the 1960s; was how we treated our people. Beating them with clubs; attacking them with dogs; spraying them with fire hose; sometimes killing them and others for just trying to help. All they wanted was to be able to live like every other American; to be equal under the law. Then it happened; the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 1968 are signed into law. It was passed by a bipartisan vote, but it could not have happened without the Republican Party; by the liberals in that Party. An inconvenient truth to both political Parties; they don't like to think about it. This triggered mostly a silent change in the government and the people of the United States.

The Southern States were almost solidly Democratic; from the time of the Civil War to the 1960s: remember the Republicans were the party of Lincoln. That stuck in the craw of many Southerners; most of them were Democrats, because of that legacy. The Democratic Party had changed; an evolutionary change; sped up by [Franklin D. Roosevelt] and those who followed him. This change; of civil rights being enforced: many in the South could not let that stand; to be fair many others in the Country had problems with the change. Even if they lived in areas, where few African Americans lived; like many of the Northern States: all this only came to a head when [busing] was used to integrate their schools; not in my neighborhood they screamed!

Now this is where all the poop got in the soup; it was a number of things, but we all suffered, because there are only two viable Political Parties in America. Many of the die-hard's; the separatists; they wanted the [status quo]; they made up their mind on what to do. A major shift took place, Joe Blow; the guy who was upset, switched Parties. Many of them are just regular folk, but it also included the guys and girls who wore the white pointed hoods and liked to mix their religion with their avocation; like burning crosses on a Summer's evening.

Many of these old heritage believers became, Republicans or Independents; they usually swung to the conservative side of things. Some like the ex-grand wizard of the Klan; who gave up the hood and stayed in the Democratic Party, like Robert Byrd, who was a Congressman and a Senator. Some Republicans switched over to the Democratic Party like Howard Dean and low and behold Hillary Clinton.

Richard Nixon was helped into the Presidency; by using the [Southern Strategy] and taking advantage of the change in the South. More that 50 years have passed and the two Parties have attracted extremist from both the Left and the Right; and by doing so it has warped much of what both parties stood for.

Both extremes are largely driven by hate and ignorance; the ignorance feeds the hate. Most people; when they think of the [political spectrum], see a straight line going from the left to the right. I propose the spectrum is shaped like a clock with the far Left and the far Right; being just on each side of what would be 12 Noon or Midnight, depending on your perspective. Not touching; but ever so close; they seem to bleed into each other; both using the same tactics; both being authoritarian; both attract the crazies; who have given up on [Critical Thinking] and using real facts to do their reasoning. They live in a twilight zone of [conspiracy theories]; they have them for every occasion; shoot one down with a fact and out comes another; like arrows in a quiver, and so on.

These are examples of real conspiracies; documented by real facts, but the strange thing is most of those who believe in the"theories"; almost never know about the real ones. To name a few, and some of these are famous: [The assassination of Abraham Lincoln and the rest of that plot]; What is called the [Business Plot in 1933], that was a planned coup of the US government; the plot to kill [Harry S. Truman]; then President of the USA by the Nationalist Party of Puerto Rico; and the [MK-Ultra Program] of the CIA who used LSD for all kinds of programs. There are more, but hopefully you get my drift.

There are whole industries built around manufacturing lies that sound intriguing; they have as much truth in them as sugar in a cup of black coffee. Sites and Blogs like Breitbart; Fury News: who's motto is Lay Siege to Liberalism; The Federalists Papers Project, Independent Journal Review, The Common Sense Conservative, Red State Watcher, Red White Blue News, Gateway Pundit; and many more. They are not news sites, but propaganda; a fine art of slowly moving the people into thinking and acting on their agendas. They use bits of truth, but that might just be the person's name; then they edit it into a reconstituted non-reality, but it sounds good; like any good fiction. The old man, Fox News is the 'Disney' version of the opinion driven variety; more wholesome; more establishment, but it is still slanted.

The sad thing is they really work well on people who are looking for an answer, but who doesn't want to do the heavy lifting required; to find the real information. This viscous circle feeds on itself; the modern social media aids it's spread like a leak in a breeder reactor. Many of these false stories have been circulating for years, but like [cicadas]; they go underground for years and then spring up as a 'New' story. Here are a few example this one's for the Right: "don't use the new one dollar coins, because 'they' took off the motto; In God We Trust"; not true, never true, one dollar coin was minted using the edge of the coin to mint the motto. People freaked out; because they did not see it right away. This also feeds into the ALT Right side; they are outlawing Christmas; Obama is not an American; Our World is coming to an end; we need to take 'it' back: 'they' are everywhere and out to get you!

On the Left one of my favorites is a photo of an animal lying dead with a man posing in front smiling; it looks like a great beast has been slaughtered. The a viral explosion hits social media; terrible man, killer, ban hunting, ban guns, but it's a joke; the man is Steven Spielberg; the"dead" animal is a prop Triceratops from Jurassic Park. This reflexive, knee jerk reaction is done by both the Right and the Left; it is the [lizard brain]; it is part of the disease of ignorance and lack of clear thought; coupled with the almost instantaneous transmission of a story to the masses. If it is a joke it can be great fun, but if it's misinformation it can be corrosive to our ideals and our souls.

Just ask yourself; what do I know and how do I know it? Did you hear it, see it, or read it? Did somebody tell you? Why did you believe that person? Did you dream it or was it conjured out of the vapors? What was the original source material or research; was it done from multiple sources and then fit together like a fine jigsaw puzzle; to get the whole real picture? Always question things to find the full answer. The University of Iowa as reported in Science Daily: "Once people reach a conclusion, they aren't likely to change their minds, even when new information shows their initial belief is likely wrong and clinging to that belief costs real money, new research shows".

The Republican Party has been the minority party for years; they have always depended on the swing voter; the dissatisfied Democrat; the Independent; the protest voter; who ever they can get. The response to any threat; real or perceived is to rally the troops; if you're a Republican you have to vote Republican; it's survival. I call it the [Musk Ox] response; they gather in a circle with their horns facing the enemy and their rears facing who they defending. Only this time they picked a real [Lemon]; a defective person if there ever was one; Donald J. Trump who each day seems to say something, do something; or evidence is found of his failings as a businessman; as human being. Donald Trump is not a Republican; he and the die hard's, who follow him are actually some sort of neo-fascist Party, under the big umbrella of the Republican Party. They like to be called non-establishment, but if you listen carefully, you can hear the click of their heels; their hands rise in salute, and shout out "Hail Victory"! Trump and the followers need to be weeded out; so they can form their own Party. Be careful what you wish for; and watch [The Donald]; the man who stands behind you; especially if you are a Republican woman, you are defenseless to what he may reach for and what he might do to Republican men; hold onto your wallets, because; he is just out for the Buck, your bucks.

One of the best things I have seen in my life; some true Republicans are pulling away from the herd. They are actually [critically thinking] about the man who they now seem forced to follow. This is a good thing; to act on what is really happening; with a good conscience. The most painful part of what is happening to the Republicans is they are suffering from [cognitive dissonance]; like when you know smoking is going to kill you, but you rationalize your smoking, because of the habit, or it makes you look cool.

Too much of the Republican Party is controlled; or shows deference to what I call the [Wahhabist] branch; the Alt- Right part of the party. I call it that because like Saudi Arabia, the place that word and belief comes from; they support [Wahhabism] with great amounts of cash. It is the [Wahhabi Mission] that preaches a very fundamental vision of the world; it is not Islam; the [Wahhabist] say there is no Islam; only [Wahhabism]. [Thomas Edward Lawrence]; Lawrence of Arabia told a story about a man who falls into a hole and yells for help; Another man tries to help, but he is stopped by a third man a [Wahabi]; who says do not help him out, if God wants him out God will pull him out. To me this is the bottom line to the Alt-Right universe of the Republican party; too many non-thinkers; just followers.

Today the Saudi's and much of the Middle East is suffering from this; because the [Wahhabist Movement] is what helped spawn the ideals of [Al-Qaeda], [ISIS], or [Daesa], as the Arabs call them. They are literally biting them on the ass; like the parts of the Republican Party; that gave up the white hoods, but not the ideals; because the greater Republican Party needs the numbers, so they overlooked who they let in and let it fester; now they are paying for it.

I think Donald Trump is a very dangerous man; he has never been in my fan club. This goes way back, long before he thought of running for President, and everyday he speaks only helps reinforce those feelings in me; he gives me the creeps. What I hear is not what his seemingly blind and deaf devout followers hear. They say he speaks his mind, what does that mean? What it means to me is he has made the vile; the hate speech; the latent racism; now OK to spew. He is the cover child; the permission slip for all these people who have under their breath always felt this way; now they can speak freely. It is the kind of stuff you only use to hear from the crazies; who stood on the [soapbox] in the public square and ranted; about whatever their neurosis compelled them to say. Donald Trump has no [character]: your character shows when you are not not running for President; when you are not on camera. It shows while you talk to people everyday; on your journey through your life.

The die-hard Trump supporters reminds me of the supporters of [Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr.]; who used to hang around the Post Offices and public buildings; back in the old pre-internet days. They would try to push his ideas on you; many were polite and if you engaged them conversation; they would stop and pretend to listen. Then they would pick up exactly where they left off; thinking no further than being a human tape recorder. The Trump supporters live in a fantasy of [conspiracy theory's] aided by our immediate bank of Memes; fake news stories; videos that are gleefully produced by cynics and charlatans to be freely SHARED among fellow travelers. This has even been aided by marketing [algorithms] on Facebook and other social media outlets. The algorithms are meant to help steer ads and comments to others who fit their profile. This is mostly what a person sees on their news feeds; it keeps them isolated in their little bubbles; safe from where 'wrong ideas' might intrude. The algorithms are for marketing, but they often do more harm than good.

Remember the good old days of Bill Clinton; back when laws actually got passed. This had a lot to do with the ["Contract With America"], co-authored by [Newt Gingrich]; when the Republicans they took control of the House. Clinton got to tweak the bills a bit, as they passed; it's strange the Republicans got almost everything passed they wanted: many were disturbed because Bill Clinton's name was on the signed bill. He got the credit, not them; that's what happens when you're the President. Clinton said; well nobody's happy so I must be doing something right; yes compromise is the only way our government works.

Things got much worse on day one; when Barack Obama got elected, and I don't care what you say; it had to do with Race, but people rarely go directly there. They said he is not an American; he is not a Christian: what they are really saying is he is not one of 'Us'. Except for his first two years in office, both the Republicans in the Senate and Congress; decided to oppose anything the President wanted to do; even if it was something the Republicans wanted to do. They [Blacklisted] Obama; for six years, and the government of the United States of America has been paralyzed. Most of what Obama did manage to do is temporary; it can be undone by another President; this was not his choice; it's what he was forced into doing.

The Race thing is strange; because Race does not physically exist; we are all human beings and the same Race, [Homo sapiens] ; a quote from The Myth of Race: The Persistence of an Unscientific Idea, by Robert Wald Sussman, says: "Thus the concept of human races is real, It is not a biological reality, but a cultural one. Race is not part of our biology, but it is definitely part of our culture. Race and Racism are deeply ingrained in our history".

Donald Trump seems to be very influenced by others; he has at least two favorites, one is [Ann Coulter]; who I think maybe trying for the position of the new [Leni Riefenstahl]. Ann Coulter said: "my libertarian friends are probably getting a little upset now, but I think that's because they never appreciated the benefits of local Fascism"; She said; "my only regret with [Timothy McVeigh] is that he did not go to the New York Times building"; She said; "swing voters are more appropriately known as 'idiot voters' because they have no set of philosophical principles. By the age of fourteen you're either a conservative or a liberal if you have the IQ above a toaster." I say; if you can not change your opinion; you think there are only two ways to think about something; you are not human being, but a binary machine unable to see the color of the clouds, or the beauty of the world around us. Ann Coulter was very happy about the Mexican Rapist speech; it was right out of her book.

With people like Ann Coulter and people who think like her; who needs a terrorist; they are the terrorist. Both Ann Coulter and Donald Trump seem to have no [Empathy]; the ability to walk in another's shoes. This is a quality that every thinking person needs, especially someone who seeks to head our government; that is an essential quality. We must think like [Socrates]; who said to have an "unexamined life is not worth living." We need to understand ourselves and others; to have meaning; we need to live "By the better angels of our nature"; as Lincoln said. Coulter calls herself a Christian, but I believe she and many others look to Christianity as a; [Get out of Jail Free Card]; this allows them to live a hateful life, a venial life; only using their Free Card at the end of their life. I have been told by Christians; some of them are my family; just being a good person, doing the correct things; helping others won't get you into Heaven. Well I think if some the"Christians" lived their life like they were Christians; the whole World would be like Heaven on Earth and that might be better for us all.

Another very strong influence of Donald Trump is his seeming fascination with ideals of Fascism; the World now seems to be flirting again with some of these ideas; from the Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte who said call me Hitler; and who has killed thousands in his country. To Shinzo Abe the Prime Minister of Japan; who seems to hearken back to the old Imperial days of the Empire; before the Second World War ended. If you know history; you know Trump's words are taken directly from the Fascist playbook: they ring little alarm bells in my head .

According to Dr. Lawrence Britt these are the 14 characteristics to Fascism.

1: Powerful and continuing Nationalism.

2: Disdain for the recognition of Human Rights.

3: Identification of enemies, scapegoats as a unifying cause.

4: Supremacy of the military.

5: Rampant Sexism.

6: Controlled Media.

7: Obsession with National Security.

8: Religion and Government are intertwined.

9: Corporate power is protected.

10: Labor power is suppressed.

11: Disdain for intellectuals and the Arts.

12: Obsession with crime and punishment.

13: Rampant cronyism and corruption.

14: Fraudulent elections.

Does this sound familiar?

Trumps fascination with Fascism may come from his childhood; in his biography it is said; " Donald was an energetic, assertive child, he was expelled from school and his parents sent him to the New York Military Academy at age 13, hoping the discipline of the school would channel his energy in a positive manner."; maybe that's why he thought he should get the Purple Heart?

Norman Mailer said this about Fascism; "I really am a pessimist, I've always felt that Fascism is a more natural governmental condition than Democracy. Democracy is a grace. It's something essentially splendid because it's not all routine or automatic, Fascism goes back to our infancy and childhood, where we were always told how to live. We were told, yes, you may do this: no you may not do that. So the secret of Fascism is that it has this appeal of the people whose later lives are not satisfactory."

Fascism can come from both the Left and the Right; here are two extreme examples. An opinion from the Left, [Sinclair Lewis] said; " When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a Cross."; and from the Right, [Jonah Goldberg] said; "If there is ever a Fascist takeover in America, it will not come in the form of storm troopers kicking down doors but, with lawyers and social workers saying. I'm from the Government and I'm here to help you."; know as the nanny State.

One of my greatest fears about Donald Trump is his seeming [Narcissistic Personality Disorder]; my term for people like him is Pre-Copenicuan a belief that the whole universe revolves around him, and he alone can save the country. His unstable actions and inability to keep on path or thought for more than a minute at a time make him unfit; he can not run this Country.

Trump says things like; " I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot people and I wouldn't lose voters"; unfortunately he seems to be correct.

Trump said; " I think apologizing is a great thing thing, but you have to be wrong. I will absolutely apologize, sometime in the hopefully distant future, if I'm ever wrong."

Trump says; " I will build great wall - nobody builds walls better than me- and I will make Mexico pay for that wall, Mark my words." I say this about walls; The Berlin Wall did not prevent crossing; it slowed them, but not prevent them from crossing. Ronald Reagan said; "tear down this wall"; it was torn down by hand, by the people. The [Great Wall of China] did not stop the raiders and invasions from coming into China. The [Maginot Line] did not protect France from the German invasion in World War 2. This is last bit of wall advice is from General [George S. Patton;when he said; "fixed fortifications are monuments to the stupidity of Man." When will we learn?

Trump says he wants "To Make America Great Again"; it's Great now. What he is saying is he wants a World; where you can speak with the tongue and mind of someone in the 1950s, but Trump is living in the [Gilded Age] of America; just look at his golden chairs at his residents; during the 60 Minutes interview; he is lost in his [Robber Baron] Victorian mindset. Trump's likely to help speed up the process of America becoming an [Oligarchy]; a world where the few can have all; and the rest of us will become serfs again.

People say they like Trump because he is not politically correct; he is not the [establishment]; that kind of thinking might lead you to pick an auto mechanic to do an operation on your heart; because they both work on pumps.

What's wrong with Trump is he has no sense of decency. As he continues to put down people and try to defame them; from Hillary Clinton; to the Miss Universe Alicia Machado; to Senator John McCain to who knows next. This makes me think of [Joseph N. Welch] who was the Chief Counsel for the United States Army; during the 1950s [witch hunts]; my words; in the Army- McCarthy hearings. Welch said to Joseph McCarthy; " Senator, may we drop this? Senator you have done enough, have you no sense of decency, Sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?" That is what I say to Donald Trump, do have no sense of decency? Just look at his face; as he struts, mugs and postures around the stage looking like Benito Mussolini in the second Presidential debates.

I think Donald Trump is, to use [Sigmund Freud's]; view stuck in his [ID], his [Ego] is weak and his[Super Ego] is nonexistent; a child-man that never grew up; he truly is the [Ugly American] ;" loud, arrogant, demeaning, thoughtless, ignorant, and ethnocentric." To me Donald Trump is the adult manifestation of the classic [Bully] ; like [Biff Tannen] as seen in the [Back to the Future] movies or [Scut Farkus] in The Christmas Story. The unrepentant bully; who in Trumps case has been magnified by his money and his vast army of Toddies, Ditto Heads or whatever they might be called. Unfortunately for us Trump never met his [Ralphie Parker]; who punched him in the nose, he never got the bloody nose; he never got his humility in this world.

Donald Trump's specialty is the [Red Herrings]; the [smoke screens]; one stinks and the other keeps you from smelling it. He excels in the technique of the [Big Lie] as used by the Nazis; he is not Hitler, but that is who he patterned his style on. See if this sounds familiar; "his primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or a wrong; never concede that may be some good in you enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him or her for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it." This is from Hitler's psychological profile done by the [OSS] during the second war.

Maybe I'm completely wrong; maybe our Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution so well; that it is so strong it can survive anyone. Well we know the Constitution itself; the vellum it was written on will survive, it's in protective vault; that's made to make it through World War 3. I fear the people Trump might surround himself with; what they might do our Country. Like [Ben Carson] said; What do have to lose, it's only four years, what could happen? Our Founders did not know that someday we would have the ability to destroy the planet; with only a few pushes of a button: that control lies in the power of the Executive; the President, and we would lose everything.

What would you do if you had a time machine, but it could only affect political events? Would you go back to 1933 and vote for the strange Austrian with the funny mustache, like [Charlie Chaplin's]? Remember he was elected; the head of his Party and picked by[Hindenburg] to be Chancellor; you know how that worked out. We now have someone who seems to have taken his style clues from the same man, would you vote for him again? Do you learn from history or are you condemned to repeat it?

Think of these two quotes when you go out to vote; both are from history; and remember history is the closes thing to a time machine we have; one from a German and the other from a Founding Father.

From Pastor [Martin Niemoller]:

" First they came for the Socialist, and I did not speak out, because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionist and I did not speak out, because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out, because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me- and there was no one left to speak for me."

This is from [Benjamin Franklin] and he said; " Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor Safety".

I say to you, go out and vote in November like you life depends on it; because it just might. Hillary Clinton was not my first choice, but I check out the stories; they are mostly from the Alt-Right propaganda machinery, she is actually been more truthful than most politicians; she is far from perfect, but better equipped than most. I have never voted for a President that was perfect; that probably will never happen. All the votes for anyone, but Hillary Clinton is a vote for Donald Trump; a vote for Trump is a vote for insanity. Voting for Trump and the two other candidates running is not a protest vote; if you think that, you are suffering from a case of the [Stockholm Syndrome]; we need to be unshackled: to not be held hostage by our mental [Blinders].
