Liz Cheney & Friends are Not Leaving the Republican Party
But maybe they could be convinced if Joe Manchin & friends left the Democratic Party with them
Representative Liz Cheney (R-WY) has once again gained the ire of her Party by accepting a position from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to investigate the attack on the United States Capital Building on January 6, 2021.
She is not the only one in the Republican Party who has been censured and humiliated as the conference moves further away from their values; nor is this a uniquely Republican problem as there are those in the Democratic Party like Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) who buck unilateral, partisan action.
In the end, these politicians share more in common with each other than their contemporaries—not in policy, but in the the approach to government, conversation, compromise, and duty to the country above self and Party.
