Well…Yeah, We Do, Actually

Governor Kristi Noem (R-SD) pretty much nails why I left the Republican Party.

SD Gov. Kristi Noem Said Americans Want A Republican Party 'That Actually Follows Through On What They Say They're Going To Do' (lifezette.com)

South Dakota’s Republican Governor Kristi Noem went on Fox News on Tuesday night to discuss what many see as divisions within the Republican Party.

Noem said that in order to find success moving forward, the Republican Party must actually follow through on promises, something she says they’ve failed to do at times in the past. One such promise that Noem believes the GOP went back on was the pledge to repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare.

“I think what people want is a Republican Party that actually follows through on what they say they’re going to do, that actually puts forward and enacts the policies that we say we believe in,” Noem said. “We talked for years about doing health care reform, repealing Obamacare, and we haven’t done it. We’ve talked about doing immigration reform, making sure that we’re welcoming people legally to this country, and we haven’t done it.”

And this is why many liked President Donald Trump (R-USA). He did what he said. Yes, he failed on Obamacare, because petty Senator John McCain (R-AZ) couldn’t give Trump a win. It was more important to stop Trump than to help America.

This is a problem with Democrats too.

In my life I don’t know how many times I have been told to “under-promise & over-deliver”. Politics is literally the only field where it pays to do the opposite. Keep over-promising and under-delivering and you can stay in politics your entire life.

The difference between Republican voters and Democrat voters is that Republican voters have gotten sick of that. I get the feeing that Democrat voters are reaching that point too, but they’re not there yet. Will be interesting when we both are.
