Pay attention to the 'Actual Product'
Republicans market themselves as 'The Party of Fiscal Responsibility'

Do they deliver on this?

NO

America's national debt skyrocketed from 2000 - 2020

This happened under 1 Democratic Presidency (Obama), and 2 Republican Republican Presidencies (Bush, Trump)
2008 Obama marketed himself as a Leftwing Populist.

His rhetoric sounded something like "I will raise taxes on the evil rich people, to give you (the masses) free stuff".
Did he deliver on this?

Kind of.

Taxes did not meaningfully change.

The ACA (Obamacare) made it easier for poor people to access medical care, which is beneficial.

Did life for poor people dramatically improve?

No
Obama marketed himself as a Leftwing Populist.

He governed like an Establishment Democrat.
2016 Trump marketed himself as a Rightwing Populist.

His rhetoric sounded something like "I will get rid of these immigrants, so that you (white masses) don't have to compete against them for jobs and housing."
Did he deliver?

No

The demographics (and immigration policies) of America have not meaningfully changed under Trump.
Trump marketed himself as a Rightwing Populist.

He governed like an Establishment Republican.
Most within the masses are not capable of seeing through marketing, to examine the actual product.
Most Obama supporters in 2008, had the same opinion of Obama in 2012.

Most Trump supporters in 2016, had the same opinion of Trump in 2020.

If you found out I am a billionaire, you would take my writings more seriously.

If you found out I am homeless, you would take my writings less seriously.

================

This is because you think...

Worldly Wealth = Qualify of Man

AND

Quality of Man = Quality of Writings
In truth...

The quality of who a man is, and his level of worldly wealth, are 2 separate matters.

The quality of who a man is, and the quality of the writings he has created, are 2 separate matters.
The Error:

Worldly Wealth = Quality of Man = Quality of Writings

The Truth:

These are 3 entirely disparate things.

There are 2 forms of foolishness:
Belief Without Evidence: A person believes something intensely, and they have little or zero evidence to support the belief.

Disbelief Despite Evidence: A person refuses to believe a thing is true, even when there is overwhelming evidence to support it being true.
When a Rightwing American thinks "There is a God in the sky with a son named Jesus", they are guilty of 'Belief Without Evidence'
