Well... I don't see a poll.... but off the top of my head I'd have to say Nathuram Godse, the guy that shot Gandhi.

Or Stalin he sucked something fierce as well.

sorry Gandhi, I was eating dinner and forgot to post the poll... my fault.

Yes, I selected Josef Mengele, his experiments and his obsession with causing unimaginable pain to people just makes me despise him.

For me and most of the British people it has to be the big H, Hitler.

He wiped out half of my city in continuous air raids. Plus the near extermination of a race in Europe. Plus we got to see what happens when right-wing nationalism goes wrong!

though we disagree with who the worst person of all time is, I still am astonished by the amazing job the British did in defending their city against the Nazis, especially the Luftwaffe, in the Battle of Britain, hats off to you folk.

I feel that Stalin is the worst by far. What he did to the people of his country was horrible. The people who put hitler are in their right minds as well, but probably don't know the entire story. There is a lot of evidence that he was never involved in the final solution and that it was his seconds who were carrying it out, interpreting his rants to mean that he wanted no more jews period. I agree he was a bad guy, but his seconds may have been the ones who handled the extermination without his knowledge. Plus, he was doped out on so many meds that he was never in his right mind after about mid-way into WW2.

actually he was aware of most actions in the concentration camps, it was that how would it look for the biggest anti-semitic calling it quits on the killings of Jews?

Well, I am going off my teacher at SMC when I say that, and I tend to trust him a little more than you. Towards the middle of the war, Hitler was really unstable. But here is what I found, I am going to ask him for a few books so I can research this cause it is really quite interesting.

http://www.holocaust-history.org/hitler-final-solution/

There is absolutely no doubt it was his idea to get the jews out of the country and into concetration camps, but it is just generally assumed that it was he that ordered it, even though he wasn't at the conference that decided the plan for the final solution and gave no hand written orders. The only reason that historians currently think it was hitler from my understanding was the word of one general whose fanatical hatred of jews rivaled hitler.

I am not defending the actions of hitler by any means, trust me, i am 1/8 jewish and find him a plauge on this earth for his hatred of jews, but I am not convinced it was his fault without the evidence. Also, here is some info on his mental state.

http://www.fpp.co.uk/Hitler/docs/Parkinsonism/VancouverSun170599.html

I really want to research this, it would be fascinating.

Yeah it's one of our proudest moments, taking on Germany, Japan and Italy by ourselves for a while. We also delayed the invasion of the Soviet Union for a vital two weeks by helping the Greeks out- thank god for that!

One of my grandfathers fought in the RAF in the battle of Britain and the other was on one of the ships that sunk the Nazi flagship, Bismark... Prince of Wales I think it was.

I put Hitler. The guy who shot Gaundi was nothing compared to Hitler. And America is going to be the result of a left wing nationalism gone wrong.

I'm very displeased with the Republicans and think a lot of people are. They aren't getting anything done in the house or senate, so I think there will be a liberal dem in the white house and lots of them in congress for a pretty long time.

Is Gandhi really that hard to spell? It seems like there is an elite fe win the world who can pull it off.

Hitler: Total scum bag, we both agree. He killed six million innocent people.

Stalin may be responsible for up to 50 million. We're to this day still finding about the crap he pulled off.

Nathuram Godse killed one man(that I know of). Nathuram Godse killed the greatest man in the entire history our planet. We are not debating the greatness of Gandhi, if you wish to do so we'll start another poll on the "Greatest Person of All Time." Nathuram Godse killed Gandhi at a time when his work was only beginning. I believe if Gandhi wasn't killed the middle east today would look much different. Nathuram Godse killed peace. That is just one opinion.

You are kidding me right? We live in a country dominated by the left? That is ridiculous. Who controls the courts? Republicans appointed 75% of those on them...so... Who controls the white house? How bout both houses of the Congress? Oh damn, Republicans again. I'll give you the press as being controlled by the left even though it isn't...so out of the "four branches" of government...3 outta the 4 are controlled by the Right. Hmm....

Hitler is by far the worst. He was a mass-murdering rascist, homophobic, anti-semetic, fascist who slaughtered all he opposed. Stalin is a close second though. Even though I am a communist I absolutely despise Stalin for his crimes against the Bolshiviks and the working class. The third worse would have to be the bourgeoisie dictator George W Bu$h. We will be paying with blood for his mistakes for many, many, years to come. Hitler, Stalin, Bu$h in that order.

Worst Person of All Time: Hitler
Worst President of All Time: Bush

either way between hitler and bush, they do have a few things in common...they started an unnecessary war and as hitlers soldier's did, ours are dying for an unjust cause...causing many innocent people to die

If you are slurring the Capitalist-Conservative-Republicans by attempting to show similarity with the Third Reich, I'll tell you that it was precisely that group who pulled your British chestnuts out of the fire for you. You may recall that the Socialist-Liberal-Democrats, except for FDR, were anxious to keep out of the fray.

Did I say republicans/conservatives are linked to the third reich? No. I simply said Fascism is right-wing nationalism/patriotism gone mad. Explain what it is then if you think otherwise.

Ah the old American "We saved your asses in the are thing."

Interesting since Hitler gave up his invasion of the UK before the Americans entered the war.
The thing that most Americans ignore, is that Britain was vital to WW2 and Europe and the world should be grateful we didn't choose peace with Hitler when he offered it to us. We were outnumbered and outfought, but against all the odds we still fought.

If you take away just one of the big three - UK, USA, USSR, Nazism would have won the war.
I admire the Soviets, the total punishment they took in WW2 was unbelievable - even more punishment that the British. If it wasn't for Communist Russia, all of Europe not just Eastern Europe would have been under tyranny. Stalin was an evil man yes, but at least he was useful to destroy another evil man.

As for the UK, well how the hell would the US lauch and invasion of France without us?

I should also point out that the Germans are a decent, intelligent, hard working people, who have now learnt their lessons from the past and have become a peaceful nation.
They unfortunately were swept up in rhetoric and extreme nationalism that made them believe whatever the Nazi Part told them. Gobbels (Nazi propaganda Minister)- If you repeat a lie over and over again, it become truth.

All people should never forget this!

I agree that if GANDHI (Happy Now?) was alive, that the middle east would be in better condition and a lot less violence. Gandhi was a great person (not the greatest) one of the greatest.
