Soooo many trumpiteer tweeters' screen names now are "KGB Susie"

or "Deplorable KGB Ted" or like that...been that way a while...and I just gotta wonder, have you thought this through? I know it looks cool as shit on your computer screen, I get that, but

do you seriously want to live under Putin/Bannon/Dugin's thumb? Cause I think you're closing in on that dream quickly, and well - good luck with that, kiddies

complain about such things, the deplorables tell them to leave the country; yet they are so gung ho about being under Russian influence that it seems to me they are the ones who should leave the country? Tell them to pack up and move to Russia!

Either they do not know what it was like to live under the KGB, or they think it was only bad to live under the KGB if you disagreed with the KGB. Either way these people need to understand that it was not very fun for most people living under the KGB. These people need to find some documentaries about the KGB. They need to learn what the KGB did to Russian citizens and even American citizens. If you were a prized athlete or some other special person you lived well. However, if you were not a special person you lived in poverty.

How many people did the KGB kill in order to get what it wanted and to keep its secrets? How many American secrets did the KGB steal? How much damage did the KGB do to this country?

Someone wants your apartment or your job?
