    Vv and the Constitution

    So,
    Lately there has been some talk about changing the Russian Constitution so that VV can remain power.

    I guess it reads that a person may only serve two consecutive terms and then someone else has to take over.

    Why change the Constitution?

    He is old. He can take "sick leave" towards the end of his term for a few months, someone else or someones could kick the ball around for two months and then vv could run again.

    Bada bing Bada boom.

    Where's my prize?

    What good is a Constitution (a set of axiomatic principles) if it can be changed easily?

    Changing a real Constitution would be like altering one of the Ten Commandments.
    If you aim for nothing, you will hit it every time.

    Medvedko did it once already for Vovan. And he doesn't demand a prize

    Is that why the US of A's Amendments can not again be amended?

    .
    Well, that's kinda the point.

    Whereas Western countries see the rule of law and the signing of documents as the end all, Russia is very Asian in the sense that it views the exact same process as simply the beginning of the journey.

    It wouldn't be a bad idea. Putin has done a fine job for Russia and to tell the truth many people in other countries think so as well.

    In a way, Putin can be viewed as a GW type leader, both
    helped create a country from years of turmoil, to set their country on the right path .History (Russian) will view Putin as a strong leader who put Russia's house in order and led the way to early democrat values, this takes years, the foundation has been laid, it will be up to others to lay the bricks.

    Democracy does not slowly and naturally develop out of tyranny and barbarism. It is established suddenly, in a lightning flash of revolution and war, and a struggle for freedom, or not at all.
    Good luck finding actual democracy anywhere except on the very smallest scales...
