Get’er Done: Campaign Promises Russia / Campaign Promises America…

In just a few hours after his inauguration on May 7, 2012, President Vladimir Putin signed 13 decrees, instructing the government to implement all of his campaign promises. Dmitry Medvedev, who was appointed prime minister on May 8, does not consider this task to be overwhelming…

That is what I like to hear when a president takes over! My campaign promises: “Get’er Done…”

Say what you want and act like you want! But when was the last time that you heard “Get’er Done” over campaign promises? In fact when was the last time that you heard a president in America say, “Now first order of business, remember all those promises that I made to get elected? Get’er done…”

This sort of thing is so rare that it stands out like a sore thumb and you just will not see it happen very often. In Russia it happens all the time. Campaign promises are the number one priority and the sure fire way to fail, is to not follow through with what you promised as you told the world how great you would be for the position…

Putin knows this and he always makes it a priority to fulfill his promises first thing. The key to that is to have a prime minister that follows what you say and Medvedev is just perfect for that…

I have over all the years never seen anyone in America really care one iota about the campaign promises that they made. Once a politician is in office and the realities of who bought your way into office are spelled out for you. That is when you realize that corruption rules in America and your promises are worth about as much as that piece of paper you call money is worth. Not very much…

I could go on and on about who broke what promise in America, but if I had to do that then you would not listen anyway! It is spelled out in black and white everyday, you just need to open your eyes and get your head out of the sand…

Of course this will not be a news item high on the list! It makes better news to show a couple of hundred idiots that dislike Putin as president and act like they represent all of Russia… 🙂

I call Democracy in Russia as an experiment to decide and learn! / I call democracy in America a success! As democracy is winning and I wish that everyone would quit using the word as in conjunction with America. America is a republic, but that republic is soon to be a democracy and then the fun will begin…

America uses democracy to destroy countries that she does not like: Democracy–dēmocratía (“power/rule by the people”)–is a horrible system of government. It is maintained by violence, mob rule, and a pernicious envy–an envy that arises when one of its citizens rises too far above the others, an envy that drives that democracy to rip them down…

A democracy is what the American government wants in America, but a republic is what the people need and should want…

In a Republic, the sovereignty resides with the people themselves.  In a Republic, one may act on his own or through his representatives when he chooses to solve a problem. The people have no obligation to the government; instead, the government is a servant of the people, and obliged to its owner, We the People.  Many politicians have lost sight of that fact…

As you see we are on the wrong path and I hope Russia continues away from the same path that America is on. I hope that Russia learns from the failures they see in America…

I think they can and will…
