...And Vladimir beats Hillary!

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-...s-what-matters

"Update: As polls close in Russia, state-run TV is reporting exit polls (conducted by state-run VTsIOM polling company) showing a landslide victory for Vladimir Putin with 73.9% of the vote (above The Kremlin's pre-election whisper number of 70%)."


Probably not a really big surprise.
What? She wasn't running against him? Hmm..where's she been?
Probably leaving grocery sacks of classified documents under park benches or something...

Yes,

Great success! When Russians fix elections they stay fixed. You vote Putin or you vote Gulag, two choices.

Whereas in the US our two choices are more of the same, or more of the same.

Odd how the Dems morphed into warhawks this go around, I suspect the Repubs will have to morph into social warriors.

Fixing an election to get 74% is like cheating to get a C.
This might sound insane, Russians might widely like him and think he's the guy for the job.

What did the last 3 Presidents, prior to Trump ever do for the Country - ? In comparison, therefore it is entirely reasonable that Putin would be re-elected, with such a majority as declared.
Here, I am quite surprised that an uncivil war hasn't already broken out, again - well perhaps it has, it just hasn't gone Hot, yet!
Russia when I was there(2005/6/7), allowed OSCE to monitor their elections - that likelihood of ever happening here, Stateside is non allowable!!!!!! Oh the arrogance! - that denial of, is in of itself indicative of a 'complexity' within the system that is 'beyond reproach' - all things that are 'beyond reproach' in government, should be analysed, or don't you think?!

Here's another example of what people like, a government that doesn't roll over.

That's kind of mine line of thinking. The Russkies have always liked their strongmen. Heck there was a poll somewhat recently where I believe something like close to half of Russians had a positive view of Stalin.

Damn it!!!! You need to change the title of this thread.
I was gleefully hoping for a video of Vladimir Putin actually beating the sh!t out of Hillary. I'm so disappointed. Fuggin' Mondays.

I was thinking the same thing.
