Putin ONLY talks about burying lenin when he is in trouble from the west for going "Too" communist. He Keeps us wondering over here, a classic tactic of a experenced KGB agent.
Yes, Putin went communist you're absolutely right.
That's why they now have private property rights, which the democrat Yeltsin seems to have never gotten to. That's why they now have trial by jury, again, Yeltsin never quite got to that...to busy taking Clinton cash and advice. That's why they have a 13% flat income tax, our socialist tax system though is much much much more superior. They have a 24% corporate rate and a 14% corporate tech rate. Killed the sales tax, cut VAT by 1/3 and there is plans to cut it by another 1/3 and payroll taxes by 1/2 and shrunk the size of government, taking away the perks of the parliamentarians. Furthermore, they are paying off all of their external debt and set up a Anne Rand prescribed emergency fund for recessions, untouchable by the Duma.
Yup, all are communist moves, total communist moves. Those sneaky red bastards decided to implement our dream economic philosophies....damn commies.
Oh and on top of it all, they implemented Christian education programs in the schools and military! And they banned abortion after 12 weeks....see they have no love of freedom of choice! COMMIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEESSSSSS!!!!!!!!!
