17 up votes for Putin and counting.
Support like this isn't going to help the Liberty Movement win over the hearts and minds of America.
After Putin serves his current term as president of Russia, he will have held power for almost 20 years.
People like to equate Ron Paul with America's greatest Founding Father, George Washington.
George Washington had the opportunity to be, "King," of America but he chose to step down from his position of power after 4 years and set a historical political precedent for future US presidents to follow.
Vladimir Putin has been corrupted by absolute power, absolutely.
If communism collapsed after the Berlin Wall fell down and the Soviet Union, "collapsed," too as we were all told, then why in the world does the communist party of Russia still exist and have a firm grip on Russia today?
"Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about Glasnost and Perestroika and democracy in the coming years. They are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal changes in the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep."
Never be afraid to ask simple questions.
