don't expect someone to perform above their capabilities, it's a recipe for dissapointment.

so instead of debating why a man who imprisons or murders his political rivals is a dictator, you choose to just insult anyone who dares to use facts.

no wonder you love trump. he's afraid of facts too.

I love how you twisted the accusation that he has (implied full) control over his Parliament into everyone has SOME control over their Parliament. do you work for PR?

Do you think having some control over your legislator is the same as FULL control? I don't think so.

anyone who criticises him gets charged with some crime or mysteriously winds up dead. he rules through fear, bribery, and control of the media.

There's no balance of power in Russia.

I don't know enough about their system to definitively agree, and am at work so I can't do decent research.

Are there theoretical checks and balances on his power?

He has been on power for over a decade. He controls the media and ofcourse the Duma( russian parliament).
