Most of the posters here I agree with. It hardly matters how a dictator "runs for office".
Like it matters which party he runs under...window dressing for the Party of Putin...look forward to his Facebook campaign strategy!
HE IS NOT GOING TO RUN AS A INDEPENDENT..LIAR. HE IS RUNNING AS A republican...HE AREADY HAS TRUMP AND ALL HIS KOOL AID DRINKERS IN HIS CABINET...LITERALLY....2018
Putin IS the ruling party.He kills or imprisons his opponents.Does it matter what party is behind him?
Does it really matter?
"Putin undecided whether to run as an independent or not"
Briefly as I read that I thought it meant in the Winter Olympics. But, sadly, that isn't what it meant.
Who cares what he runs as? He wins no matter what party he belongs to because his opponents are jailed or killed. I see this in our future at the rate we're going. The Republicans care nothing about the Russian investigation and will do nothing no matter what Mueller finds. Senator Franken is stepping down but Trump remains with worse allegations against him and they want a child predator from Alabama as their next senator to replace Sessions. We're really heading in the wrong direction and I'm sure Trump is taking orders from Putin on what to do next.
Hysterical. Just call it the Party of Putin and be done with it. What a joke.
Perhaps we just wants to change parties for the fun of it, or to prove to someone he can just for a goof, a bet perhaps? Haha.."Hold my Vodka.. Watch this."
How interesting that Putin so popular, yet the party he heads is not popular...
