Watch this, it will blow your minds and piss you off! Our government is nothing more than a propaganda machine ran by Warmongers, Corporate Interests and Tax Payer Parasites! They didn’t want Tucker shining a light on reality.

Tucker and his crew all guessed it would be around $400, it was $103.82 USD.

quote:

That's when you start to realize that ideology maybe doesn’t matter as much as you thought. Corruption.

If you take people’s standard of living and you tank it through filth and crime and inflation and they literally can’t buy the groceries they want, at that point maybe it matters less what you say, or whether you are a good person or a bad person.

You’re wrecking peoples lives in their country and that’s what our leaders have done to us.

And coming to a Russian grocery store, the heart of evil, and seeing what things cost and how people live. It will radicalize you against our leaders.

That’s how I feel anyway.

Radicalized.

I think the streets and subways were what blew Tucker's mind the most, considering that Moscow is such a large city. I have to admit, it's impressive how Moscow and many large cities in Europe (certainly not Paris and similar) are seemingly very clean. I'm sure they have their share of ugly districts, though. I always wonder what the government / tax burdens are, in order to have that.

Lol.... Doesn't matter. The MSM narrative addicted idiots here will never believe it.
Some folks are sooooo shallow, anything threating their understanding of how things should be vs how things are with our country.... they can't reconcile the difference.
That trait in many are how the progressives keep these sheep in check. Good news is, more are finding the courage to face truth.

What's the per capita income in Russia though? Context matters.

ETA: Just looked it up.

Russia-$15,345
U.S.-$65,423

So, the lower grocery bill would be on par with U.S. prices in terms of percentage of income. I know Putin has plenty of fluffers here, but I doubt any are planning to move to Moscow.

I saw it earlier but couldn’t verify but the post I saw claimed $60k vs $10k in favor is the US.

Physics teacher, had an exchange student from Moscow. One of the smartest kids I ever taught. He was curious about our history and system of government. After school we would talk.

Anyway he told me that once you get out of Moscow, Russia is a third world country. So go roughly 30 miles outside Moscow in any direction and you’re in a poor country with no infrastructure and services.

Yep

Russia’s economy is a bit smaller than the state of New York’s if I remember correctly

Not looking to ditch the US or fluff for Russia, that’s not the point. I’m no socialist and fully embrace capitalism / free markets (but without manipulation - the govt choosing winners / losers).

So they are a poor country, yet the poors can afford to eat, cuz groceries are 1/4 the cost there as here. Maybe because they don’t give away all of their money to other countries all over the world thus inflation not as much of a problem. Seems like it would be better to have affordable goods and services due to responsible government spending and people able to eat on the money they make instead of welfare giveaways to enslave the poor and keep them dependent on the govt.

The dollar is also very strong in places like Vietnam, Mexico, Peru, Egypt, but you couldn't pay me enough to live in any of these places.

This is a weird metric to decide the living conditions in a country.

I'd say it's more likely you don't want to live where dollar exchange is strong than the other way around. Living conditions is mostly inverse to favorable exchange rates.

Ive never been to russia personally and i guess i wont ever at this point, but my dad went there in 2019 and went to Moscow, st Petersburg, volgograd, the first thing he said when you asked how it was, "never been around so much population for so long without seeing a smile"

And I bet their foods aren’t poisoned like ours is!

And I also know they don’t allow. Oh Pharma to take over their society!

USA accounts for approx. 5% of global population, but we consume somewhere around 80% of all pharmaceuticals! They poison us on the front & back-end.

We have great leadership, don’t we folks! I’d take the mindset of Russian Politics over the crap show we have in DC rigt now. Because when this show drops and USD$ collapses, this country is going to come to
Its knees.

Not the complete rest of Russia, most of the big cities are similar to Moscow. There is a popular YT channel of a guy that lives in a more rural area and it isn't that bad.

I would take it over a lot of the delta towns here in the south.

All of the PT ballers want salaries that only the wealthiest country in the world can provide, but expect to pay 3rd World shithole prices for all of their goods and services.

Maybe Tucker needs to move there where groceries are so cheap.
