I'm glad I'm not the only one looking to pass on the orgy of love for Putin. He's intelligent, crafty, cunning and media-wise. Basically everything
OUR leader right now is missing. It's shocking to see how desperate Americans have become to look up to anything or anyone. Anywhere.
He's a politician...and a very skilled one at that. Something we're not used to seeing....but still, in the end, nothing more or less than a
politician with a brutal and dark past career history.
I was starting to wonder if I should feel downright lonely about not feeling the love... lol
What I fear we are seeing Wrabbit is the turning of Roles, its not that Putin is so "amazing" and Russia a bastion of freedom and truth.
Simply that America has degraded to the point that Russia is looking like the good guy.
Its all perspective, people are finally seeing the lie of American Exceptionalism Exposed, Russia is not the Bad guy we all thought it was.
We are and were the instigators of much of the "problems" the Us has had with the Soviets.
From WW2 and after FDR Died and the US went back on the Promises to Russia, who basicly with out them we would of lost the War. More russians died
than anyone else, and so we back out on helping them rebuild and securing their boarders. What do they do? the Eastern Block and you get the raising
of the Iron Curtain.
Remember the nuke Deficit to Russia we had? that was the Huge push to arm? Never happened, We always had more Nukes than Russia, so we Arm up and Put
missiles on their Door step (turkey) because of an Imbalance that was a Lie. So what do Russians do? They put missiles on Our doorstep in Cuba, Enter
the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Than Via the CIA, we proceed to Harass and depose any Ally we can of theirs through out the Cold war, Hell the current Rabid desire to invade IRAN
comes from OUR FIRST ATTEMPT at overthrowing their Democracy.
The Us likes to Say they are the Proponent of Democracy, when History shows the Opposite of that, and now we are all just seeing the Lie for what it
We have all lived long enough to see the US become the Tyrant, the Enemy of freedom, We spy on our own, we Kill our Own with out trial. We topple
governments for corporate Interest, We smuggle drugs, we Give Cartel Guns, we are arming Al Qaeda...
Really at which point do We all put a stop to it, See that the US we all were sold growing up is just an IDEAL that we all need to strive for, Because
the Reality is so so much worse.
ETA hit submit to soon.
And Now we have a Nobel Prize winner, Pursuing a man who stood up for ALL OF OUR RIGHTS, and our HIstoric Enemy protecting the man who stood for the
Constitution and the 4th Amendment...
