"you get to bully people around with impunity, even beat them up and if you've powerful enough friends kill them" LOL. Definitely not the case of GDR, -1

comment How many non-partisan (independent) legislature members were in the USA compared to the USSR?
@Felix Goldberg this deserves opening a new question.

comment What was Vyshinsky's position about extrajudical repressions in the USSR?
@Felix Goldberg it was before the purges started. Of course, after the repressions were criticized everybody would say the same. May be I am wrong and he in fact was critical in 1936 rather than 1937.

comment What was Vyshinsky's position about extrajudical repressions in the USSR?
@Felix Goldberg i heard that in some party meeting in 1937 he was critical of the proposed repressions and called for uniform application of law.

@Felix Goldberg I mean in the East Germany or N Korea there was a formal organization like "Popular front" that included the main party and some others. In the USSR there was no such thing - when a candidate was nominated by another organization, the Communists would retract their own candidate. This was called "block". You in the answer say there was a formal block.

@Felix Goldberg any proof that the "bloc" was formal rather than propaganda?

Also can you please give a source that such "Communist and party-less Bloc" existed formally rather than being just a propaganda thing.

If the USA information is googlable, I see no reason why not to include it here for comparison. I also interested to know why do you assert that the US independent candidates were independent substantively. Also my question was about party members, not members of particular blocks (because party members are subjects to party discipline).

@jwenting what parties do you mean? I know only one. Also the supreme council had the highest authority, for example it could adopt legislation by simple majority and did not require a president or anybody else to sign it.
