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.

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 certificate.

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 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 30s 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 gold tongue and could talk to anyone and motivate them.
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 large crowds during my public appearances. This bolstered my ego.

At first, my political campaign focused on my country's foreign policy,
then on change.

I was very critical of my country in the 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 and the need for change.

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 these institutions 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 people.

I was the surprise candidate.

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.

So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the
downtrodden, poor, ignorant, to include "persecuted minorities".

My true views were not widely known & 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 I associated with.

I'm glad they didn't as I became the most powerful man in the world.

And the world learned the truth.

Who am I?
