"I grew up in a socialist country and I have seen what that does to people. There is no hope, no freedom, no pride in achievement," he says with a soft Hungarian accent in the ad. "The nation became poorer and poorer, and that's what I see happening here."

Those Hungarians are something else. I worked with a Hungarian who fled Hungary in 1956 as a 22 year old engineer.
