That's his opinion. It means squat. I don't know if Manchin is simply following his political instincts or is following his conscience and doing what he thinks is best for the country. He is one of the three Democrats that I like. Put that in your pipe and smoke it!
Manchin is a Blue Dog Democrat and the rest are simply Conservatives--none of them believe in Democracy...didn't you know!
So if we speak our mind that is different from yours, we're automatically enemies of democracy??? That's what communism in Russia was like....if you're against Communist Party, you're an enemy of the country!!! I hope we're not going in that direction!
And what pro-Democracy words have you cons spoken?
None. "Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There was never a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” John Adams
I hope you get my meaning. "Democracy" is a democrat ideal, and all we have to do to see how that's working out is look at the incredible damage Democrat democracy has done to our country. Damage so severe it could very well be irreparable. America was founded to avoid at all costs the destruction wrought by corrupt politicians and their ignorant masses.
