Do they know something we should learn?

Russian legal immigrants are aligning themselves with the Republican party...do they know something about the direction this country is going and that we should try to understand? Or are they just politically incorrect? Or is the story biased?

  • Russians, know like others communism does not work!! They lived it they know the truth, there eyes are wide open when they vote!

    And some, few I hope (liberals) are arrogant to think we can do what no one has been able to do!

  • Maybe because they have seen the toll communism takes on a country, and came here for a better life?! They know that fiscally conservative members of the GOP want to actually attempt to pull us out of this mess, and Russians are lending their support.

  • I don't see anything openly biased about the article, its mostly an interview type humanitarian peace about the local Russian political consensus.

    And yes I think they are correct, as I study and learn more about russian and political history in general I see many commonalities between today liberal democrats and the socialist/communist parties of the past.

    *But I'm also a Republican so maybe I'm a little bias lol

  • Being in a communist country it's hard to believe they don't know what they are doing. It's the same here though. Some people know whats right and some people only think they know what is right :P

    Perhaps, you should re-learn your history. No matter what party, it is all bad.

  • They came here for a better life. If they liked communism they wouldn't have come here, and they don't want to see it happen here.

  • I think just like any group of people some will lean right and some will lean left. I worked with a lady who left the USSR years ago and she was pretty Liberal and voted Democrat.


    Besides, the USSR was never real Communism. Just a dictatorship that used a political philosophy to take whatever they wanted. Far as I know there has never been a true Communist or Socialist govt just dictatorships. Not saying I support either but I don't think humans have ever really been there.
