Beware the strongman who promises he can fix your problems and the countries. Historically, it has never happened.

The KKK endorsed candidate and popular vote loser presents himself to his supporters as the only person who could fix things.

Historically, he is not alone in recent history.

Mussolini, Hitler, Franco, Nasser, Castro are examples of strongmen that promised they could bring greatness or restore it to their peoples and countries. History shows how it turned out for these individuals and their nations to varying degrees.

Today, we have strongmen like Putin, Duarte, and Edrogen among others who, like the KKK candidate, who promise the same things their 20th-century predecessors did. If history is any judge, it will not work out for the people in those countries this time either.

Beware the strongman who promises he can fix your problems and the countries. Historically, it has never happened. Learn from history.

Hopefully Trump supporters will eventually realize that his policies hurt them and they will see the light.
