From the 1970’s until 1991, I was the tip of the spear preparing, on a daily basis, for WW III with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The USSR was not a nomadic desert tribe, they possessed a formidable nuclear arsenal including ICBMs capable of striking anywhere on United States soil along with some of the best fighter aircraft on the planet. Perhaps it is time for Americans to come to the realization that the USSR no longer exists?
On the night of December 25th, 1991, in a nationally televised speech, Mikhail Gorbachev announced his resignation as president; as he put it, “I hereby discontinue my activities at the post of President of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.” He declared the office extinct and handed over its functions, including control of the Soviet nuclear codes, to Boris Yeltsin. That same night after he left office, the flag of the Soviet Union was lowered from the Kremlin and was replaced with the Russian tricolor flag. The next day, December 26th, the Supreme Soviet declared that the Soviet Union had formally ceased to exist as a functioning state, thus they voted both itself and the Union out of existence. Two days after Gorbachev left office, Yeltsin moved into Gorbachev’s old office.
By the end of the 1980s, severe shortages of basic food supplies, including meat and sugar, led to the reintroduction of the war-time system of distribution using food cards that limited each citizen to a certain amount of product per month. Compared to 1985, the state deficit grew from 0 to 109 billion rubles; gold funds decreased from 2,000 to 200 tons; and external debt grew from 0 to 120 billion dollars. Socialism did not work and will never work for a nation.
In my opinion, Modern Russia is more pro-western, pro-Christian, and pro-capitalist than the Modern Democrat Party of Obama, Hillary, Schumer and Pelosi. It also appears to me that the Democrat Party is more in bed with foreign Arab Jihadists than current Russia President Vladimir Putin. Russia actually hates them and has no place for Muslim refugees in his country.
I believe the gulf between the Democrats and Republicans is much greater and broader than during the Civil War. Make no mistake; the Civil War was a war between Democrats and Republicans. While the Republicans won the war and General Lee surrendered to General Grant, the Democrats killed President Lincoln before pretending to be reconstructed and continuing business as usual in the South for a hundred years.
The issue today is not so much slavery; it is the pro-Leninist and pro-Marxist philosophy that turned out millions and millions of Democrats for Bernie Sanders. There is not a shred of doubt in my mind that if the Democrats had not rigged the Primary Election, Bernie would have been the nominee. Hillary could not draw a crowd if she swallowed a fully inflated football.
After success in the Primary, the Democrats were confident they had the White House in the bag. The pitiful Democrats could not even win with a rigged election, 99% of the media and a goodly portion of the Republicans pulling for them! On top of that, the Communist Party of the United States was pulling for Hillary just like they pulled for Obama. Obama was ready to play ball with Russia after his reelection and Hillary couldn’t do enough for Vladimir. Maybe it was his chest and biceps that caused Hillary to fork over our uranium to him?
After French kissing the Russians, the Democrats are now ready to fight them. Our stupidest Republicans also want nothing less than a New Cold War or even a nuclear confrontation with the Russian Federation. The Hanoi Songbird and his girlfriend Lucy Graham have so much free time on their hands they do little else besides stirring the pot from sunup til sundown.
I can’t remember when so many feckless politicians were itching for a war with another Super Power. Those who never felt the sting of battle are always the most hawkish and have the biggest mouths.
With Obama and Hillary giving Vladimir EVERYTHING he could possible want, why would anybody think he would risk a war with the United States by tampering with our election?
Considering our Astronauts cannot reach the International Space Station without Russian help, America may only be 28th in math and science but we’re about 100th in common sense!
