I understand that about the record rating Putin has not written yet just lazy. Or lazy. That is, I. In my defense, I can say that I used my laziness to good effect. Because, once again being in the midst of a large cluster of Russian compatriots from all over our vast country, I managed not only to believe in this transcendental rating, but also to check it. According to the results of the check, I can state with confidence: leave unnecessary doubts, dear oppositionist. These figures are real - Russia is almost unanimously standing behind its president’s wall. In some areas, as it seemed to me, this rating can reach the absolute - 100%.
I was lucky to talk with people from numerous regions of the country: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Irkutsk, Krasnodar, Surgut, Belgorod, Sakhalin, Petrozavodsk, Kostroma. They are all great people. Quite calm, not violent, not cocky, not stupid. And one and all, firmly and with a bit of a challenge, confirmed: Yes, we unconditionally, on 100% trust our president. Yes, we feel behind him, like a stone wall. Yes, he gives us a sense of security. Yes, with him we look to the future with confidence. Yes, during his tenure as president, Russia was able to rise from its knees and become a powerful world power. Yes, we agree that we must beat first, not waiting until they hit. Yes, we want to be feared. Yes, we will give our children to defend their homeland.
And dozens and dozens of unconditional, uncompromising "yes." People are satisfied with pensions, medicine, opportunities, prospects. And the most important "yes" is a sincere, ardent desire to see Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin as its president many, many, many times. Moreover, one woman declared that she would not even vote if the candidates did not include the last name Putin. Only he is able to keep the country afloat, and the world is in fear. Only he can curb corruption, rebuild the broken and protect his citizens. "God give him strength, health and the desire to control us further."
I do not know how it was under Stalin, only read. Feeling of reading stories - not so much loved, though, of course, not without it, how many were afraid. Although crying when he died, from the heart. Nikita Sergeevich, if I am not mistaken, was treated in a mixed, if not neutral, way: neither love, nor fear, nor hatred, nor special respect. Only if a sense of gratitude for deliverance from the horrors of Stalinism. Pretty quick evaporated. This left the impression of reading. "Dear Leonid Ilyich" certainly did not like - here I am a witness. Rather, the habit of worship. Well, they laughed, of course. It is possible that he is the first, except for the weak, lifetime attempts to play a trick on Khrushchev’s corn and uncouthness. Yeltsin, of course, was not loved. But at first very much respected. This is also the first time in my opinion. But the current leader, according to my observations, is loved, respected, honored, and feared. In his face, citizens see a defender, mentor, an example to follow, a versatile, energetic, healthy leader. In the modern history of our country, in my opinion, this is also the first time. Three, four, five - in one.
Google, when typing in the search for the phrase "alpha male" will certainly produce a picture with the image of V.V. Putin in one form or another. It was a complete discovery for me. For personal reasons, I needed to find an image of an “alpha male”, and already in the process of searching I came across this amazing phenomenon. Somewhere between the unrelenting Brad Pitt - Arnold Schwarzenegger - Jason Statem in all species and orangutans, also in all species, a photo, drawing or demotivator with the image of our president was surely provided. Of course, some of these pictures are full of irony, and even sarcasm. But still a huge number of photographs, not excluding, however, sarcastic, clearly proves his status as an alpha male for his tribe. When searching for the words "macho" or "real man", the image of Vladimir Vladimirovich is much less common, but it still occurs. But Obama, or Cameron, or some other Western political leader, I did not see on any request.
Judging by the impression I received, the Russians are ready to lay down their lives for their president. Many of them lived with at least three long-playing rulers (I do not take into account the period when Russian-Soviet leaders died with statistical regularity), and they can only speak about the present with pride. You and I, dear oppositionist, are terrified that the president in every possible way promotes the culture of the streets, the culture of the streets, which he has carried through his whole life, embodying with pleasure the science obtained on these streets, and the citizens of the country are touched and proud of it. His maxim “With the possible threat of a strike first”, was aspirated by compatriots within an hour after it was said. To my question: "And who, who threatens us?", The answer was: "And no one! Because He will not allow us to threaten! ”
Of the twenty citizens I surveyed, only one person found a flaw in the activities of the president and did not keep silent about him. According to the guy from Surgut, who moved to live in Central Russia, in Kostroma, V.V. Putin pays insufficient attention to agriculture. And even worse - he allowed it to almost destroy. The rest expressed one hundred percent support for all his actions and words, without exception.
What is there to talk about, dear oppositionist? Why resent, waving flags, slogans? Arrange rallies, pickets? Against who? Against the monolith, which is a huge country, unconditionally believing and selflessly loving its hero, its Illya Muromets, Dobrynya Nikitich and Alyosha Popovich in one person? So what, that Russians can love with no less, if not more passion than they hate. Maybe let love? After all, if our fellow citizens, almost all of them, are good, then why change something? For whom to change something? How to change something? Who needs casualties, casualties, fighters and the struggle itself, if no one expects change? So let us rejoice, my dear fellow oppositionist! Take advantage of this respite. As they say, "take your overcoat, let's go home." Save power and experience. Watch. Study. Folk lump, this 90-percentage mass of people will call us when they decide that they want a new Illya Muromets or Dobrynya Nikitich or Alyosha Popovich. The main thing - do not miss the moment and be ready to help. In any form.
