We have a freedom of speech First Amendment. I have seen more shit (jokes, vitriol, lies, hate speech, etc.) written about President Obama...and other stuff that will a person an interview with the Secret Service. Putin has nothing negative written about him, and for the few who have dared to challenge him, somehow they have ended up dead. Remarkable.
Yes Putin is in power in large part because he controls the media. His approval rating in Russia is consistently in the order of 90 percent. Wow...we should admire that? And call him a great leader?
Power is Russia is not measured in the same way power is measured in America.
And no I am not laughing. As you know I have been solidly behind President Obama and Hillary Clinton, despite all the lies said about them both. The Hillary haters live in an alternative universe of believing Republican talking points...and maybe also Putin's talking points.
Yes, of course you realize; what was exactly my point, that the Russian "system" does not compare to ours. Neither is it an Capitalistic or Democratic system. Putin at least acts as an "politician"; Trump does not.
Anyway Hillary is not clean either, but I will vote for her regardless; but I still don't like (not hate) arrogant "ego" trippers like her either.
At least a bit better than Hitler Trump.
