17. Hitle began by having the legislature make him a dictator
Bush just succeeded by having the Republican led legislature kill habeus corpus. he can imprison any american simply by declaring, without having to prove it, the person an enemy.

the comparison is apt. it doesn't require a body count, it requires INTENT and there is a tone of that in bush.
