    Putin Is A Tyrant, But Western 'Progressives' Are Destroying Civilization

    After observing the recent demonstrations in downtown Moscow by students against unfair municipal elections, and the rabid anti-Trump snarls of the corrupt American media, and the seditious political establishment against POTUS in the United States in the last week, I have come to the conclusion that although Putin is a tyrant intent on staying in power, the treasonous Left in the West is after nothing less than the destruction of civilization.

    Putin has imprisoned thousands recently, beaten some, and some face long prison terms for inciting unlawful demonstrations. He may have even had Boris Nemptsov and others killed. He has threatened, invaded former Soviet satellites and territories in Russia's 'near abroad'.

    However, what he has done well is champion the Russian nation and Russian civilization, with all its faults, and successes.

    You cannot say that about the seditious media and Marxist pols in the United States and the West. They are literally destroying Western civilization. (Just ask the average German citizen that can't leave their homes for fear or rape or violence) Western civilization has lifted the world out of poverty, spread freedom around the globe, increased life expectancy for billions, and pushed the human spirit to formerly unfathomable heights. This is the same civilization that has allowed 'progressives' to be 'liberal' (in the Marxist sense, not classical liberalism) in the first place.

    The West allows gays to live their lives in peace where in Muslim countries they are thrown off rooftops. The West allows unbridled opportunity for those willing to work for success (key word 'work'). The West allows you to be who you want to be, defend your own property, and seek life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

    Communism, Marxism, socialism, progressivism, are the exact opposite of all this.

    Now the Left wants us to not bear children, descent into sexual perversion, destroy our children's lives, stop defending our borders, spend ourselves into oblivion, forget our religious heritage, and erase our history.

    200 million people died in the 20th century from the communist ideology. Hundreds of millions more will die if the Left is allowed to succeed in their current quest.

    Communism is not about fairness; it always only about control in the end.

    So I ask you, who is worse? Vladimir Putin or Bill De Blasio who allows a great city to become vermin infested with rolling blackouts during a massive heat wave? Vladimir Putin or Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who wants to control your life, destroy commerce, even kill children after they are born? Who is worse, Vladimir Putin, or Hillary Clinton who wanted to corrupt our entire government and sell us out to the Chinese? Vladimir Putin or Barack Obama who used the awesome power of the American federal government against his political enemies?

    I think the answer is obvious to these questions.

    Americans need to realize what is going on. This current gun-control push (under the duress of dubious mass shootings) is not about guns; it is about control. They want to control everything you do. They cannot control you if you are armed.

    I'm not supporting Vladimir Putin or his methods; I'm simply stating the obvious. Quoting the Bible, America needs to 'take the log out of its own eye, before pointing out the speck in others'.

    We have massive problems at home. We are facing a communist revolution, nothing less, just like Russia in 1917 that destroyed the tsarist system and replaced it with even more unimaginable evil under Lenin and Stalin, where entire civilizations were destroyed.

    I know America won't let that happen. There are too many patriots who value freedom and all it stands for.

    Aristotle teaches correctly that government is tyranny. It can be the tyranny on one, a king. It can be the tyranny of a few, an oligarchy. It can be the tyranny of the many, mob rule a.k.a. democracy. We are tasting the failings of democracy, just as did the Ancient Greeks.

    Read The Athenian Democracy in the Age of Demosthenes by Mogen Herman Hansen.


    Of course, we are not a democracy...we are a Constitutional Republic which votes candidates into power to do the will of We the People. And of course, corrupt and treasonous politicians in any form of government will seek to do their own will exclusively. As our politicians, many of them marxist democrats seek to destroy the American culture with perversions of all kinds in the name of choice and freedom...we must point to Russia as the source of the communist infiltrators that are now in our government, schools, courts, Hollywood and the enemedia that our corrupting our nation from within. That the USSR set out to destroy us from within is clearly stated in the communist manifest read into the 1963 Congressional Record. Its 45 goals have largely been accomplished by the marxist demrats voted into office by gullible useful idiots. Our Constitutionally protected right to bear arms is the only thing standing between a marxist takeover and keeping what remains of our freedoms as enshrined in our Constitution.

    Putin is a strong man and fortunately for him is in a position to do a lot of good for his people. He will remain the bastion of what's left of our current civilization. As for the US, even though the current Presidency promotes strength for a continued western society, the Presidency is slowly being eroded away by the anti-constitutionalists, who favor an elusive freedom that is not possible without a strong set of laws to govern that freedom properly. Unfortunately for the US, the democrats and their party, have become so corrupt in their political philosophy, that the only thing important to them is the possession of power. They have lost their moral compass. We can only pin our hopes on strong men like Putin and Trump to see us through what's left of our short western civilization, before we head back into the Dark Ages. This time though there will be no resurgence.
