Putin is a collectivist; he is a communist. The Democrats are collectivists; they are communists. That is not to say that collectivists, communists do not have different ideas. Lenin was always a Bolshevik. Trotsky was initially a Menshevik. Rosa Luxemburg was a communist but had differences with Lenin. This is common in all political movement. Thomas Jefferson and John Adams wrote the Declaration of Independence together but become political enemies just 20 years later. They both still believed the United States must remain a republic to protect individual liberties.
Putin and Democrats have much more in common than they have differences. They both oppose capitalism and believe in a centrally controlled economy or socialism. They both believe that the teachings of the Bible are not literal and favor atheism over belief in God. They both believe that a strong family unit must be eliminated as the backbone of society and unions must replace them. They both believe that democracy is superior to republic. They both believe all children must be indoctrinated to believe that collectivism is good, and individualism is bad. They both believe in the sovereignty of the state and that people must be conforming servants to the all-powerful state. They both believe that individual liberties come from the state and must be controlled by the state as opposed to coming from God and that the role of the state is only to protect them. They both believe arbitrary law must replace rule of law. And the list continues.
Putin has said that he believes the U.S. Democratic Party is "closer to social democratic ideas" than Europe. He added that the Communist Party, which he said aligns with values that he believes in, originated from those same social democratic ideals. This would be supported by the fact that the Democrats and Putin have much in common.
Putin wishes to reinstate communism in Russia. The Democrats wish to make the United States a communist country. Yes, they have some differences as do all people, but they both ultimately believe in the supremacy of the state, they both adhere to the Communist Manifesto, and they both detest the Bible, The Declaration of Independence, and The Constitution of the United States.
