hahahaha! Those crazy Russian elections. All for naught. But, it gets the population out in the fresh air, and makes them feel they have a voice. Political charades, Russian style. But, in the end, Putin wins.

It is obvious which party provides Russia with the best hope of making life in Russia and helping to boost Russia's power in this world. United Russia is the best party in Russia. That is the reason for it's success. Now,,if you want a election system that is absolutely a joke just look at the United States. I am shaking my head already! Russia is blessed to have Putin leading them for so many years. Too bad that the US isn't as lucky! Well,,the US is in a steep decline. Nothing more to be said.

I like our system of government. By the time one party's stupidity begins to shape policy, another party's voted in to undue the stupidity and shape new policy with their own stupidity. It keeps the stupidity at an even keel. ;-)

Isn't it ashame that we have two parties to choose from!? What choice is that!? Russia has one dominating party. How many do we have???? Just twice as many. Now,,,where's the competition!? We are a dictatorship but, Americans have been brainwashed into believing that we are a democracy. Russia is a dictatorship but, at least they don't try to hide it. We do. Americans are in denial. Americans can't really think for themselves or our people would realize that we should be voting in people not parties. Our country is falling behind a increasing number of countries in this world but Americans sit back like cattle and take it. Now, where is the democracy!?
