This is something that most Americans won’t acknowledge today and something that even ten or twenty years ago would not have even been considered possible. But here we are with the Russian government holding the moral high ground over the United States and most of Europe. Vladimir Putin and the rest of the government of the Russian Federation have proven to be an example to follow as opposed to something to be hated and feared.
Today, Russian citizens can safely walk their streets knowing that their government is looking out for them and is working diligently to keep them safe. Something that is sadly not true in most of Europe. Abroad, Russia has shown her commitment to stamping out terrorism without trying to force their brand of democracy down everyone’s throats, unlike NATO. And also unlike NATO, Russian forces are actually getting results.
On the diplomatic front, the Kremlin has shown nothing but restraint and goodwill toward America despite the U.S. media crying “hackers!” and “election riggers” and the President trying to entirely derail relations with Russia. The Russian government even invited all the children of U.S. diplomats to a Christmas celebration instead of throwing an Obama sized tantrum and kicking out our diplomats.
In many ways it appears that Russia is taking the lead on the world stage in showing everyone else how to run a country and deal with others, especially those who want nothing more for your country other than failure and dependence on the U.S. I applaud President Putin for keeping the Russian people safe and for showing the rest of us that there is hope that the West will not collapse.
