>look up russian political parties
>the only alternatives to Putin's party is a party that wants to create a neo-russian empire and another that wants to bring back the USSR
No wonder Putins in office
Well, clearly you didn't look very hard. There is LDPR, SR, and a shitload of irrelevant parties. Just face it - people vote for Putin because they legitimately like him. Don't immediately say hurr durr +15, because I'm not stating my opinion on if Putin is good or not, I am just saying that Russian people legitimately want him to be president.
>people vote for Putin
lol and here's another faggot that thinks russia is a democracy.
how come some of the largest morons on this planets live in russia and usa?
LDPR is complete marionette party. Their leader says random radical things, but in Parliament whole party almost always votes like UR (Putin's party).
CPRF (ComParty) are NOT real communists. They don't advocate total nationalization and return to Soviet planned economy, they are just more left-wing economically than Putin - they want progressive taxation and more social spending. Also they love Christianity. They aren't really communists, in practice they are Christian social democratic party.
> wants to create a neo-russian empire
Putin wants this too.
In the West parties promote candidates, in Russia it's vice versa. United Russia was created as pro-Putin party, at first they were promoted as "together with Putin". In terms of Tropico games United Russia is a loyalist++++ party (with some Christianity, militarism and capitalism, but only because Putin supports that).
>re-establish the soviet union?
Of course not. Currently, Russia has nothing to do with marxist ideas (which have to be implemented if you're trying to reestablish USSR); in fact, it is turning into something that I'd charachterize "neofeudalism".
