Vladimir over here?

It's been a little while, but here's a new chain email I received. This one actually looks to Vladimir Putin for inspiration for curing America's 'ills'...
Vladimir Putin's SHORTEST SPEECH

Putin's Speech August 04, 2013

This is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin....
How scary is that?

On August 04, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:
Putin on minorities? This ought to be 'good'...
"In Russia live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws.
So far, so good. If you want to live in Russia, obey Russian laws. And guess what? If you live in America, you need to follow American laws (unless you're rich enough to buy off  special treatment or a politician it seems).  Russia has a national language, so in Russia, you better speak Russian. And this is one area I agree with the sentiment of this email. The United States of America does not have an official national language, but I think it should. I'd support the adoption of English as America's official language.

But until it is actually made as such, people speaking other languages should be no more than an inconvenience. Yet some act as if they have been personally wronged in some way. Yet, while you may be irritated by a speaker of another language, it is likely a bigger inconvenience for them, since most Americans speak English. While it may get in the way of communication, for now, it's perfectly legal.
 If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim's then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law.
And this is were the US Constitution does us proud. The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment would keep Muslin law from ever being passed in the United States. It does the same for Christian rule as well. This great construct of our founding fathers protects us from all forms of Theocracy.
Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'.
We don't 'need' minorities either. But many come here for a better life. While I agree that minorities shouldn't get special privileges, that's not what most are asking for when they scream 'discrimination'. When gay Americans claim discrimination because they can't marry, they aren't looking for special privileges. When non-believers claim discrimination when atheist billboards are denied (yet Christian ones allowed), or if students are disallowed from forming a Secular Student Alliance club (even though Christian groups are allowed), they aren't looking for special treatment either. In these cases, these minority groups are looking for equal treatment and nothing more. Just the equal treatment and rights afforded to all Americans. 
We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation.
I'm all for respecting America's culture and history. But I certainly take issue with those that wish to teach and spread revisionist history. When the Texas school board tries to invent a new American history to teach out youths, I can't help but take issue. They've proposed the removal of the Enlightenment, Thomas Jefferson, and America's role in the slave trade from the curriculum. They also wish to propagate the fantasy that America was founded by uber Christians, that the founding fathers were all uber Christian, and that they wanted create the USA as a big old Christians only club. I'm against America being a Christian nation, Muslim nation, atheist nation, etc. America provides religious freedom, and I would like it to stay that way.



But what does Putin mean by the 'suicides of America, England, Holland and France'?
The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia.
Oh, that that's what he means... How are Muslims taking over America? They make up only 0.6% of the US population. How exactly is 0.6% 'taking over'? In England, they're 4.8% of the population. Holland? 5.5% France? 3% So where does Russia stack up? Putin says that Islam is taking over the fore mentioned nations, but won't take over Russia. So they must have almost no Muslims, right? But Russias religious breakdown is 6.5% Muslim. So Russia actually has a higher concentration of Muslims than the nations Putin is criticizing, and a lot more than us here in the USA.
The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways Sharia Law and Muslims. When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians.
Actually, they are Russians (provided they are there legally). And Muslims in America are Americans (if legally immigrated or born here). And remember, as long as our lawmakers follow the Constitution, there needn't be the slightest worry about Sharia law in our fair nation. 

The politicians in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.

If you keep this to yourself, you are part of the problem!

It is a sad day when a Communist makes more sense than our Devout Muslim President Barack Hussein Obama........ but here it is!!!!
 It might be time to come out of the bomb shelter. The Soviet Union is long gone, and Russia is actually a democracy in which the people elect the rulers. True, the system is still very corrupt, but they do hold elections. Officially, it's classed as a semi-presidential republic. While the Communist party does still exist in Russia, though support is waning. In the last presidential election, the Communist party earned 17% (and that figure has been on the decline). Also, Capitalism is alive and well in Russia. Regulation is a bit different, but still free markets.

Putin himself... well he was a member of the Communist party, but he isn't anymore. He now belongs to the 'United Russia' party. In fact, he just opposed a proposed Communist initiative just last month. Putin is a Communist in the same way that I'm a six year old boy.

And finally, the old 'Obama is a Muslim' claim... Really? The president has been pretty candid in interviews, speeches, and his writings that he is a Christian. But no, let's just point at his odd name and yell 'MUSLIM!' I'm sure that will be real rational and productive...
