Joe Manchin has been a godsend for us in the U.S. He has managed to help the GOP deal with the fact that we are a 50-50 split in the Senate, with the deciding vote in the event of a tie being Kamala Harris. We have yet to need the VP to step in – and that’s because Manchin has been voting more with the Republicans than with the Democrats. Though, this is a shock considering he’s a registered Democrat.
The thing about Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, is that he’s not interested in the liberal politics or the progressive agendas. He describes himself as a moderate Democrat – and it’s getting harder and harder for him to find common ground within his own party. Those on the far left, including the members of the Squad, are actually bullying him for his thoughts on various topics.
Manchin isn’t afraid to rip into Joe Biden. We all know that there are plenty of reasons to criticize our president. One of the senator’s latest tweets was epic: “When will this end? It is a disservice to the American people to act as inflation is a new phenomenon. The Federal Reserve and the administration failed to act fast enough, and today’s data is a snapshot in time of the consequences being felt across the country.”
It had to be said. Typically, this level of criticism would come from a member of the Republican Party. We wouldn’t even blink if this was a tweet from Ted Cruz or Lindsey Graham. The fact that it came from a Democrat is why we have to stop and applaud.
Joe Manchin’s voter registration card may say, “Democrat.” We believe that he needs to become a proud Republican. He clearly shares many of the same ideals. He wants to represent the people of West Virginia. He stands by the people instead of by himself. He’s not a yes ma’am to Nancy Pelosi, either.
There’s no better way for him to give the finger to the Democrats than by changing his political affiliation. There have been plenty of other politicians to do it over the past year.
The reality is that the dynamics of the Democratic Party have changed. Suddenly, they’re killing babies and blaming parents. Christianity is under attack from the left.
It’s hard to be Christian, pro-life, and a parent with kids in public school and proudly state that you are a Democrat. It’s why there’s so much in-party fighting going on. The socialists have infiltrated the party and are demanding that everyone get on board.
Joe Manchin has proven time and again that he doesn’t want to board that liberal train.
Even financial analysts who served under Obama have come forward to say that the Biden administration is responsible for inflation. And they provide advice on how to make changes – but Biden remains blind and deaf to it all. It’s as if he wants to watch the entire country struggle while he makes jokes at the podium and points his finger at Putin for all that is wrong.
Manchin isn’t even alone. As RedState reported regarding Lee Resources, “for every customer complaint there are 26 other unhappy customers who have remained silent.”
We can only expect this to ring true in Congress. Manchin isn’t the only moderate Democrat who is sick of what Biden is doing. He’s just one of the few to speak up.
If Manchin made the switch to the Republican Party, how many would follow him over? It would be fun to see.
