Is America Becoming the New Soviet Union?

Updated on August 9, 2014



USA Now Versus Former USSR

First I would like to qualify that this article is satire for those who could take what I write too literally. I should also state no Communists were hurt in writing this article as theoretically they don't exist anymore.

I remember the former USSR and all of the reasons communism was bad and Capitalism was good and I am wondering if they still hold true. Or if perhaps Capitalism and Communism are interchangeable terms in this day and age. This article will analyze features of the Communism and how similar it is to Capitalism in the USA.


As child of the USA we were taught the Soviet Union used propaganda to keep its' people in ignorance. Russians are cousins to the Germans so I find it hard to believe anything slips by Germans or their cousins.

There is no propaganda in the USA. We are always told the truth!!! There is no other governmental propoganda in any other country either. No Italian propoganda or South American propoganda or Chinese propoganda.

Thanks Goodness all propaganda collapsed with the fall of the Soviet Union. Things are so much clearer now in the USA???

Today We Bombed Iraq Again According to the Wall Street a Journal...No Propaganda In This Speech

Communism and Capitalism

In Communism all the money went to the rich and in Capitalism all the money went to the rich. In both societies the working class have substandard working conditions and barely make a living wage. But Communism propagates the belief of Utopia, that every citizen works to achieve the glory of the country. In Capitalism it is everyone for the glory of themselves.

Both countries are very glorious and the rich enjoy a disparity of wealth unprecedented compared to the rest of society.

There is no class disparity of wealth in the USA now. We are all on the sqaure with a level playing field. Russia is too but their square is lined with silk, platinum and more natural resources than any other country in the world. It is so good all the playing fields are leveled now.

Utopia Society

Communism offers the pursuit of a Utopia society while Capitalism offers wealth at any cost. But recently corporations have taken over the USA and they hold all the pursue strings so the USA is supposedly waking up to pursue a Utopia Society with Harmony as well.

That is the USA, all happiness and Utopia now of course the corporations would not hire an American to save their lives. That us okay they have a pool of wealthy high skilled Middle Eastern and Russians to choose from. American Utopia is only for the Russians now.

Of course since Russia infused large amounts on cash to keep this country solvent so pretty much they bought America on the cheap. Since Russia is so fantastically wealthy compared to the USA, I doubt sanctions will do anything to the Russians except make them angry.

Really Dumb To Anger Your Banker


It use to be that in the Soviet Union you had to have papers to travel from one place to another. Now in America you have to have papers to do anything. These papers are called the Real ID. The USA never use to require papers. Old Russia and New USA are the same.


The letter KGB and FSB use to summon fear in the hearts of the people. Now we don't have that in the USA. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is such a philanthropic caring agency who supports and helps the people for which they are sworn to serve.

Most Americans get the willies just hearing the initails TSA which they have had to have more than one intimate encounter with in the name of National Security.

So glad to be livig in the grand Democracy of USA. So good to be free of freedom.


People who spoke out against oppression and government became political prisoners in the Gulag. Those were the lucky ones in Staelin's time. The others were just executed, Actually Staelin executed more people then Hitler.

In America if you speak out against lets say for instance war or Wall Street, guess what? You go to jail.

But no worries America is different we have no political prisioners in the USA we just ship them to Cuba or another country. The USA is very different we have no political prisoners at all.

And even if we did we wouldn't send the to the Gulag. No we have no Gulag but a GITMO.


GITMO/GULAG is basically the same.


Cronyism was a tool of Communism to oppress the people. In the USA we don't have cronyism. Our leaders are pillars of their community who only wish to serve their people. They have no ambition or need for monetary reward.

Our leaders are so good and honest in the USA. That is why the keep collapsing the debt ceiling with their okay raises...same old, same old.

In Conclusion

It would seem when the Communism failed it completely propagated to and spread throughout the world taking no greater hold than that in the USA. Oh that can't be true? There is no communist state in the USA. It is a society based on capitalism and meritus work. But then you have to ask yourself. What has Congress done which has been meritus in the last twenty years? So does the USA really a capitalistic society in which meritus work is reward? Is that why everyone is marching on Wall Street or is it an elitist state in which their is a glass ceiling for each and every human being and the American Dream is but a myth?
