Russia has parliamentary (Duma) elections this year and the Communist Party of the Russian Federation looks like they will be making a strong showing.
A bit farcical really, the open communists led by Gennady Zyuganov, versus the crypto – communists led by Vladimir Putin.
From Russia Today:
The unopposed Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov has said his party intends to win Russia’s December parliamentary elections, describing the current situation in the country as “feudalism” rather than “capitalism”.
In an interview with Kommersant newspaper, MP Zyuganov said he believes that the Russian Communist Party (KPRF) has every reason to be aiming to win the State Duma election and leave the ruling United Russia party behind. Recalling regional elections in March, the politician said that in the Nizhny Novgorod region for example, KPRF got about 55 per cent of the votes, which is 27 percent more than the Putin-led United Russia.
You know people’s moods perfectly well. The party will get more [votes]. Significantly more,” the Communist leader said. The party’s task is to safeguard that outcome, and for that reason, the KPRF has already started training 500 thousand election monitors.
The KPRF leader also emphasized that the parliamentary election is now a priority task for the party, as plans for the presidential campaign will come later.
“If we fulfill our potential at the Duma elections – that is one question. If we don’t – it will be a different story. But I would like to reiterate that today, from the perspective of our party and its supporters, the future is better than ever,” Zyuganov said.
The US has a similar sham going on. The Communist Party USA will occasionally criticize some move by Barack Obama and the crypto – communist Dems.
In reality however, they work in unison on all matters of major importance.

In simple terms we have the communist party presenting candidates from two different parts of the same communist party; so no matter who gets the office, you still have a communist leader of the very same communist party.
It is like changing the safety pins on a soiled baby’s diaper.
Not sure if you were speaking about Russia or America. I contend that the communist party controls both parties in the US. People have no idea what we are facing which is why the Republican establishment continues to cede more power to Obama in the name of compromise. Don’t you think they know who he is and was years ago? Of course they did but the American people have been duped into thinking that a sound byte here and there means that these Republicans are genuine to what they aspouse while time and time again undermining the very priniciples they claim to defend.
We have a one party system from Bush 41 to Obama, listen to them in their own words. Bush 41 cited the UN charter not the US Constitution, Mccain slams T Party and tells us to tone down the fact that our President is a communist and radical.
In the Communist Goals of 1963 it mentions gain control of one or two parties.
They clearly have accomplished the latter. The key to understanding this is to research Henry Kissinger who’s influence from Bush41, Eagleburger, Scolkroft, Geitner, Powell and Rice is undeniable.
Yes, the perception of reality is so shrewed up that most continue to believe that the republican insiders and ex Bush people are opposed to what Obama is doing yet they sit silent waiting in the wings to attack patriots like Palin and Bauchmann.
We are watching a game where the blue and red side are to believe that they are winning when the only winners are the ones on the field (Gov) which both are fundamentally transforming this great nation.
Assume everything I say is right (because it is) because all of a sudden it becomes so very clear. If we don’t vote for conservatives, embrace our faith in God and American patriotism we are finished. We can’t allow material things to get in the way. The system is going to collapse what we need to do is to come together as a people and not cede anymore of our liberties.
