    On the threshold of forthcoming State Duma elections in Russia all civil society is boiling up: people are deadly tired of corruption, arbitrary decisions by judges, authority’s tyranny, abusing the Constitution. People want free election, they don’t want Putin will be the next president. Runet is filled with opposition videos, items, music, etc. Undoubtedly the next revolution will be in Russia. Help to spread this video and conduct democratic elections. Help to make the revolution and overthrow Putin's government!

    Revolution in Russia is over, Putin et al have won. Resistance is futile.

    If it doesn't work out in Moscow, Putin can always come over here and formally announce he's been running the DNC the last few years

    That does not even make sense, CrusaderStatist, from you.

    Everyone in Russia over 30 remembers the old days. They are probably very grateful that they have a competent leader with sensible goals. It hasn't been that long, but if you look at how far russia has traveled in 18 years there is no way they want to go back. They like their relative freedom of speech, they like store full of all kinds of good stuff. They like they don't have to wait forever to be allowed to buy small amounts of dreck. They like having choices in elections. Of course, they keep making the same goofy choice, but they do so voluntarily. They have had their revolution from tyranny. They like it.

    Now, that doesn't mean there wont be interesting results this next election. Russia is feeling pretty restive like the rest of the world. The Conservatives managed to push out labor after 15 years in the UK. Germany seems likely to give Merkel the door soon. The left is ready to make huge gains in France in the coming elections. The Republicans managed to switch 15% of the seats up for election in both the house and the senate last time, which for the US is huge.

    So the next elections in Russia will be interesting. But Revolution against responsive, competent marginally honest governance? Who needs it?

    Putin should realize he can't push Communism on two fronts; he needs to pick between Moscow or the DNC.

    The DNC is capitalist and democratic, and you are insane.
