As a West Virginian, for years I have told readers that Joe Manchin will not flip parties and become a Republican. I am not really sure why readers believe that. Nothing in his record shows a fondness for the truth or limited government. People must have him confused with John McCain.
West Virginia voted for Donald John Trump twice? Manchin could not care less.
What part of Manchin saying "I don't give a shit" do you not understand?
The will of the people means nothing to him.That is the opposite of the representative democracy contained in the Constitution. A senator who defies the will of the people is no hero. He is a coward. A real hero would resign the Senate rather than vote against his conscience.
