Russia has a low egalitarian 13% flat tax for everyone, rich or poor, not the socialist graduated tax used by western Europe, Canada, the US.

Russia has single payer universal health care not controlled by big insurance.

Russia has a large public sector including energy and defense.

Russia has affordable college education for all citizens. Russia is one of the most educated countries in the world.

Putin has done more for the Russian people than any American president has ever done for the American people. Russia is not politically divided with 2 parties obstructing each other all the time.

If there is a country the US should take a page from, it's Russia.


It’s not a conventional option, but there’s at least one very good reason for foreign students to choose a university in Russia. The vast country is one of the cheapest places in world to study, second only to India, according to research by FAIRFX currency exchange.

According to a 2016 OECD estimate, 54% of Russia's adults (25- to 64-year-olds) has attained a tertiary education, giving Russia the second highest attainment of college-level education in the world.

One of the few things Trump appears to be consistent and sincere about is his admiration of, and desire to work with, Putin. Everything else is just gibberish.

Of course not, anyone who opposes the main party is sent to work camps in Siberia or just disappeared.

And with healthcare so good that people actually have to lay down on railroad tracks to get trains to stop for a ride to the hospital, what's not to envy?


The Audit Chamber reports that some regions even lack mobile medical teams to provide care in remote areas. When local train service was canceled to many smaller towns in the winter of 2013-14, residents of tiny Novosokolniki, Nevel and Opochka in the southern Pskov region literally lay down on the railroad tracks to force passing trains to stop and carry them to cities with hospitals.

Putin may be a president-dictator, but hes a better leader than America has had in my lifetime. Russia certainly isnt perfect, and they dont enjoy some of the political freedoms we do, but they do got it together better than the US / Europe / Canada. Someone tell me that the West isnt a total mess right now... Didnt think so.

They also dont allow gmos.

*this doesnt mean I agree with everything putin or russia*

Russia has a 2 part parliament like the US does. President gets 6 years terms rather than 4 years terms so Putin's term only expires next year when he goes up for re election.

Why didn't the celebrities who promised to leave America if Trump won, MOVE TO RUSSIA? Maybe they'll move there now!

Work camps in Siberia? Sounds better than a work camp in the desert.

Yes. I think we all know in practice that he is more of a president-dicatator though. Not like Assad or Kim, but still holding the permanent position of leader of Russia no matter his title. Hes not the type to care about the title. The buck has stopped with him for a very long time.

He does good for the Russian people, so he is popular. Parliament generally likes him. Parliament changed president term from 4 years to 6 years when Putin became president in 2012.

I dislike the Two Party System but going to the other end of the spectrum is no better. Just ask Boris Nemtsov. Oh wait.

I also like that Russia is non-PC and women there embrace their femininity. Partly why Russia has so many beautiful women.

Should do more for gay rights though.

I am aware. Lol. Im not pro or anti Putin other than I think hes been a better leader than weve had in the West in quite some time. I can be objective and say that in practice he is a dicatator-lite. Im not using it as a loaded word. Just what it is. If you want me to pretend hes a totally freely elected official, well thats not going to happen because its not true.

America sounds better than either of those. But you wouldn't know it the way the Trump supporters here fawn over Russia like they're an example America should live up to.

Seriously, when did patriots and so-called defenders of freedom start to idolize Vladimir Putin, an authoritarian dictator who jails people who speak out against him?

Oh, that's right, when Trump told them to.

Hardly anyone in Russia demands gay rights for it to be an issue in Russia and considered by Russia's supreme court.

You wonder why?



MOSCOW, May 30 (Reuters) - Police broke up an unsanctioned gay rights rally in central Moscow on Saturday, detaining around 20 people, including anti-gay campaigners who attacked the activists.

The campaigners had requested permission to hold a gay pride parade today, but Moscow authorities blocked the request for the tenth year in a row - an annual ritual that has come to symbolize Russian authorities’ hostility to public expressions of support for gay rights.

A 2013 law against gay “propaganda” also sparked an outcry among Russian rights activists and in the West. But partly reflecting the influence of the Orthodox church, many Russians back the law or have negative feelings towards gays.

Russia, I don't think so. I can run my US business with a laptop from a bar in this place. Cheaper, friendlier a live and let live atmospher...unlike the divided America. I don't need it! believe me...




But Mexico such a hell hole right?

You don't know that there are working prisons in the US? Why do you think they throw so many black people in jail?

The United States has the highest prison population on the planet! Jeez. Do some research rather than look at msm bullsh!t.

Of course I know that, that isn't the subject at hand, Russia is, and how much Trump supporters love Russia and Putin.

Hate to break it to you, but an authoritarian dictatorship where people are killed and silenced for holding different opinions isn't a good direction for America to go.

No matter how much Trump supporters look up to that kind of thing.
