From the Manchin Candidate’s letter: > Whether it is state laws that seek to needlessly restrict voting or politicians who ignore the need to secure our elections, partisan policymaking won’t instill confidence in our democracy — it will destroy it. He takes this seed of false equivalence, fertilizes it with bullshit and concludes that bipartisanship is necessary.

“Whether it is state laws that seek to needlessly restrict voting or politicians who ignore the need to secure our elections” Here’s Manchin both siding this debate. Elections ARE secure you lying coward. Extremely low cases of voter fraud in the history of US voting and yet here he is trying to equate the argument on both sides. His poorly written article is filled with bad faith arguments.

Manchin should be panned for a lot of things. He’s a phony progressive who would have waited for Republicans to get on board with repealing slavery before he voted against it if he lived in the 1840’s. When is regular people can see that the GOP is now a regressive party with no other platform other than “be against whatever the Democrats do”, he surely can see it too. I truly don’t understand what he’s getting out of all of this. If he really wants Democrats to succeed, he’d stop dragging his feet the entire way and get on board to get some work done. If he doesn’t want to work with his own party, run as an independent or change parties to the GOP, it’s been done before. I’m tired of him self-martyring all of the time like he’s the one true voice we all need to be listening too. No, you’re not Manchin, you’re an enormous pain in the ass and history will recognize you for how you are helping kneecap democracy.
