Russia elects its leaders democratically and the current (2009) government is certainly a popular, legitimate government. However, at present it appears (from the outside) t…hat the government/authorities seem to suppress any dissenting public demonstrations and censer the press quite actively. On this basis one would have to conclude that, while the people of Russia have a democratic government, they do not have freedom of speech.

The most famous was Eugene Debs, a socialist and a member of the IWW ("International Workers of the World", often said to mean "I Won't Work" because they liked to go on strik…e, frequently called the "Wobblies"). Debs ran for president five times, in 1900, 1904, 1908 and 1912, and the final time in 1920, running from his prison cell. Debs had finished third in the 1912 election with 6% of the popular vote. In 1920 Debs, in prison, got close to a million votes, more than he ever had before. Debs was sentenced to ten years for violating the Espionage Act of 1917. Debs had given a speech in which he urged people to resist the military drafts used to fill the WWI armies with fresh cannon fodder. Woodrow Wilson called him a "traitor" and Debs was arrested during the "Palmer Raids", all part of the first "Red Scare" in America. Palmer was the Attorney General of the US for Woodrow Wilson. Over 6000 people were arrested in the Palmer raids, thought to be communists and held for suspicion of sedition. Other people were arrested for handing out leaflets to men at draft induction centers urging them to resist the draft.
