I am sure they will have interesting and bright life

Having spent some time in the Eastern Bloc, I have my doubts on that. Socialist wannabes should be forced to spend time there and see what socialism REALLY produces.

Amen to that. Socialism, both national and international, has been a disaster wherever and whenever it’s been tried, and the extent of the disaster seems to exactly parallel the extent to which it is tried.

That said, however, it seems that Putin is, if nothing else, a patriot. This is just one of many examples: singing a cheezy patriotic song on the occasion of Russians returning to the Rodina. Think he did that for polls, or to win the next election? I don’t; I think he really loves his country. I wish we had that same patriotism among US leaders right about now.

By the way, a youtube presentation of what I think is the song in question is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ND10dUAry10&feature=related

Here’s a google translation of the lyrics:

Getting started
Home
With pictures in your primer
With a good and faithful friends
Living in a neighboring yard
Maybe it begins
With the songs that we sang mother
From the fact that in any trials
We have no one to take away
Getting started
Home
With cherished bench at the gate
From the very birches that in the field
By bending the wind increases
Maybe it begins
With spring zapevki starling
And this dirt road
Has no end
Getting started
Home
From the windows of burning away
With the old paternal Budyonny
With somewhere in the closet we found
Maybe it begins
With a knock of wheels
And with the oath that in his youth
Do it in your heart brought
Getting started
Homeland ...

Yeah, cheezy. Still, for whatever reason, that song seems to mean something to many Russians.
