Donald Trump is an authoritarian by personal philosophy and he holds fascist views. America would not be the first or only nation-state that ever succumbed to a fascist dictator's hypnotic spell. Which is not to imply that Donald Trump is capable of hypnotic rhetoric, or engendering religious zeal among his supporters. He can be persuasive, however, and there are citizens among us who don't approve of our democratic "ways" -- people who actually yearn for a police state that can teach us all a "good lesson". If we do not exercise vigilance and discretion in who we hire as our president, we can vote ourselves into a despotic, oppressive state of misery. As Obi Wan Kenobi so aptly stated in "Star Wars" - "This is NOT the 'droid we're looking" for in the November election!
