15. Richard Nixon did the same thing in 1972

... when he was running for re-election, and this is before the Watergate troubles hit him. According to Nixon any American who didn't support the Vietnam War had to be unpatriotic. Therefore you had to vote for Nixon, or you couldn't possibly love your country. Of course all the "patriotic" Americans bought it, hook, line and sinker. It was mainly us babyboomers and a few liberal anti-war, unpatriotic Democrats who refused to support the war AND Nixon.

Once all the Watergate crap came out, and people started seeing straight - by then the election was over - they realized how they'd been duped by the lying asshole. But Nixon sowed a lot of hatred back then in order to get re-elected.
