Greatest Influence

Dear George:

As a historian, I have difficulty determining who had the greatest influence on you. Your rise to the presidency and consolidation of power closely paralleled Adolph Hitler.

However, your policies, such as spying on your own people, disappearing people, a gulag of secret prisons, executions, one-party rule, intimidated and obedient media most closely resembles Joseph Stalin.

I have concluded that Stalin is the person you most admire and try to immitate. Am I correct?

Please do not use comments for personal attacks. One of the goals of this project is to allow these open letters to foster civil (and civic) debate, so please keep personal attacks to yourselves, even if you disagree with the letter/comments here. Better yet, write a letter yourself.

    From Wikipedia:

    Godwin's Law is a mainstay of Internet culture, an adage formulated by Mike Godwin in 1990. The law states:

    Godwin's Law:
    "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."

    I find Godwin's Law humorous, and it seems to be most likely true.

    I also found your post to be very likely, Bush was probably greatly influenced by leaders such as these.
