I went with the Soviet Union. Probably because I've been to Russia, and found a certain charm to it. The hockey is good, too.
Oh Marxi...Fascism was never really given a chance, except for Spain.I'd take the Soviet Union. At least, as history proved, there was a chance for evolution into something better. The exact opposite was true with the Nazis.
Barely any of you "oppose the ruling regime" here and now; you're all quite the loyal globalist marching soldier. Try opposing THIS regime, dare ya.

I am guessing that the question presumes the same era... Hitler/German vs Stalin/USSR.
I'd take Germany, primarily because the standard of living was better. Oppression-wise, they were roughly similar, though different methods of governing and enforcing their own brands of totalitarianism.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
If you assume no war, the answer for white non-jews and non-slavs would be Germany. If not white, if jewish or slav (or if gay or handicapped) the answer is the USSR. That seems obvious.
Also if you were sabotaging you would be seen as traitor and been sent to prison like most of members of other German parties from 1930s most notable commies.
Do you sabotage War in Iraq? Many people seen it as invasion for oil - bad thing. Do you sabotage War in Afghanistan? Many people see it as war for drug control - even worse then Iraq. Do you sabotage it?

Depends on if I would want beer or vodka because other than that I really wouldn't want to live in either one if we are talking about Stalin's USSR and Hitler's Germany.

I would be killed under any of them other than Gorbachev's government...maybe even then too. I would not be a very popular guy under totalitarianism.
Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.
