Joe Manchin thinks due process is ‘killing us right now’. Unfortunately, yes you did read that previous sentence correctly – Manchin thinks America’s biggest problem is due process. Watch the video below if you still don’t believe me…

Incase you were unaware who exactly this peon who calls himself Joe Manchin really is – he is a democratic senator of West Virginia. West Virginia, a state with the 45th worst rated economy in the United States, and Manchin definitely has some responsibility to bear for his state’s poor performance. I was just there recently on a business trip, it is as economically depressing as it was ranked.
But what’s even worse than depriving your own constituents of jobs, is appearing on national television to say that the problem with America is our pesky due process laws. If only our annoying little Constitution wasn’t getting in the way, we could have a full-blown authoritarian regime! Do I sound like a villain on Scooby Doo yet?
But that’s just what Manchin wants and that’s why we – the people – must put him in check. We must call for his resignation since he prefers the government to trample all over our Constitution as well his Oath of Office which is stated as follows:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Obviously for Manchin, those were a bunch of empty words strung together because he had to. If he meant what he said, he would then have to defend the Constitution against himself. Zero integrity, zero honesty – these are the kinds of people who make up our ever-expanding government…
It’s crucial to note that our elected officials are our elected officials. They go to represent us in Washington, D.C. so we don’t have to be bothered in our personal lives. This is why he is a peon. The people own the government, not the other way around. Remember, the citizens pay for this loser’s salary.
Since relying on the government to defend our Constitution is as unlikely as getting struck by lightning twice, we, the people, need to act. If you are reading this, please go ahead and give Manchin a call at 304-342-5855 to remind him of his oath, the Constitution, and that we the people are in charge of him and that we the people have grown tired by our rights constantly being intruded on.
Our government does not grant us rights out of sudden whims, all people are born with certain inalienable rights – that’s precisely what separates us from the animals also inhabiting the earth. That’s what government’s duty is to us as citizens, not to try to strip away our rights one by one.
Please call this sad excuse for a senator and call for his resignation for trying to dismantle our precious Liberty. For I will always say, Gimme Liberty or Give Me Death, and we the people need to rally behind that message.
If you’re too nervous to call him yourself and leave a message, or would want to do more, maybe send him a copy of the Constitution, which you can purchase by clicking the book (and help fund the Wounded Warriors project). You can kill many birds with one stone, as long as you are strategic about it!
I will leave you with a quote I am sure you’ve heard plenty of times from the great Benjamin Franklin himself,
“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
