The people supported amendment To the Constitution. Do you agree with this phrase? After a few days we will hear a lot of indignant shouting: no, it's Not supported, I was against it, And in the results rigged, turnout is drawn, Those who voted for, cheated, explained to them the real meaning of the changes, but It is a revolution! But "the People supported amendment To the Constitution" Is Not a value judgment but a fact, one might even say, historical fact. Undeniable, many voted with a very high turnout (about 2 thirds) Is More than convincing approval of the amendments by an absolute majority of our people. What It is possible to argue?
Only That the People are Not the same. Oh And my opinion is more important, my vote weighs more my idea about What is good And What is bad for the Russian Federation, are correct. In other words - I'm smarter, I'm better. Unfortunately, it Is, in the present, we hear from Those who claim as the very expression of the will And its results illegal, anti-people And So on. Not all of them, of course - against voted enough most And all of them, even though they are in the minority, our people, which nobody denies neither the patriotism nor the honesty, nor the right to your opinion. But a radical minority of them say just about the fact That Only his voice matters, That many are rednecks, stupid And brainwashed by the power of the citizens, deceived And poor, which became a toy in the hands of a dictator. Not realizing That just such an attitude To people is the real dictatorship - the dictatorship of the minority which feels entitled to highlight to the people What is good and What is bad, how he ought to behave And who to trust. People confirmed their trust in Putin And the proposed amendments to the Basic law, but also the amendment That gives him the opportunity again to be elected President. Putin's opponents spoke out against the changes in practice for one simple reason: because they basically don't like the head. What is there to understand And undemocratic?
Moreover, in the same Moscow the possibility of Internet voting has led To the mobilization of the opposition-minded part of society: on the other most of them simply would Not have come to polling stations. In the end, the capital, on inaccurate data, provided almost the highest percentage of vote against the amendments Is Not whether the power of the people? No matter That the protest expression of the will of the people of Moscow from the rest of Russia look with surprise: why in the richest city in the country so many people hate government as such? No matter - the President, the heads of city bureaucrats. And okay them hated very poor Or highly ideological - no, It's a strong dislike far More often comes from well-fed, And consider themselves the elite of the public.
Although Moscow is Not Russia, But in the capital of Russia, many supported the amendment. Despite the fact That by themselves, the amendments are ideologically close Not Only absolute, but universal to the majority of our Residents - their social, Patriotic, moral components meet the views of the Russian people And, really, does Not allow any double interpretation Or a successful campaign against it. The only amendment about the opportunity for Vladimir Putin to be elected again allowed to play on the fears of the people, For example to scare young people " stagnation." It also allowed for the mobilization of anti-Putin electorate from Communists to Pro-Western liberals. In addition, the first, left-wing, much more than the second. Those who believe That "Putin is a servant of the oligarchs" (Well, That he dispersed them), far more than Those who wished to return the reign of " the best people ". But the mobilization of all opponents to Putin has turned out an absolute loss. Despite the fact That Putin did Not want to make the vote a referendum about trust To itself - That his Opponents made a bid for It. And thus the results of the vote - only strengthened the position of President.
The people support Putin. It is also Not a value judgment: the citizens want, he led the country after 2024. You don't like Putin, do You think That we need new people in charge of the country? Fine, But you do Not agree with many of your own people (unless, of course, You think it its). Convince them did Not work at the present time, do so in the elections of 2024, defeat Putin in four years. But no, instead we will say That the People fool, he knows nothing And does Not solve - And generally he doesn't have his own opinion, he would just for power.
But we remember that how People react To power in the 90-ies, And To vote for the Constitution, which was adopted after the execution of the Parliament. The only reason to vote for her the people then had a tendency to forget the horror of the hanging of a civil war that resulted in the unconstitutional coup And the bloody events in the capital. And then 58 % in (with a turnout of 55) were Not votes for Yeltsin was a vote for the end of dual power And turmoil. True chart Yeltsin was then significantly lower, and his reelection in 1996 was can Only be because of manipulation And fraud. Which openly resorted to precisely those who today are shouting about dictatorship And coup.
So People haven't forgotten, But learned a lot. And will Not give the ability to manipulate themselves And their opinion in any self-styled defender of its interests - either foreign or domestic. Russian People said their word - listen to it, and if you disagree, then just accept the will of the majority. After all, people power Is the power of the majority? Or usurped the right to speak on behalf of all of the aggressive minority denying the majority the right even to Express their opinion? The second version of the Russian was Not signed And never agreed to - let currently, the Americans deal with him.
