Kristi Noem on Principles & Values

 

 


America is the greatest country in human history

What do we want to save and keep for our kids and grandkids? We are saving and keeping the greatest country in human history. Our Founders built something the world had never seen before. They took the best of Western Civilization from Jerusalem to Athens to Rome to London. They brought together Faith, Reason, Law, and Representative Government. And in Philadelphia in 1787 they put all of that together to craft the Constitution of the United States of America.

Better off than 95% of the world because you're in America

I need you to wake up happy. You woke up this morning in the United States of America. You are better off than 95% of the people in this world just because you woke up in this country. Be optimistic. Don't watch the news. It sucks. It really does. It's horrible. Be happy. People will be drawn to you by your optimism because we, as conservatives, are the only ones who really know what hope is.

We're exceptional; no American should apologize for that

Our founders had their thoughts, certainly, but to use their thoughts and condemn their ideals is both unjust and self-deceiving. How many of us can live up to our own ideals? If not for the words, beliefs, and sacrifices of those few, the world would not have a ringing example of true freedom. Freedom is better than tyranny. We are unique, are exceptional, and no American should ever apologize for that.

COVID: no shutdowns, we stayed open the entire time

For those who have spent the last nine months shut down or locked up in other states, South Dakota is open. We have stayed open the entire time. And that's how we will operate for as long as I am Governor.

Remember founding fathers' ideals or will lose freedom

As President Reagan said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. It must be fought for and protected." It's part of our duty to make sure our children appreciate the nature of the freedoms we enjoy--as well as how they were won through conflict and protected through the formation of a limited government. It would be if we do not engender in our children a love for country and the freedoms and liberties our founding fathers fought to carve out.

Member of the Tea Party movement.

Noem is a member the Tea Party movement

The Tea Party movement is a populist conservative social movement in the United States that emerged in 2009 through a series of locally and nationally coordinated protests. The protests were partially in response to several Federal laws: the stimulus package; te healthcare bill; and the TARP bailouts. The name "Tea Party" refers to the Boston Tea Party of 1773, the source of the phrase, "No Taxation Without Representation."

Member of the Republican Study Committee.

Noem is a member of the Republican Study Committee

Organizational Self-Description: The Republican Study Committee (RSC) has served as the conservative caucus of House Republicans and a leading influencer on the Right since its original founding in 1973. It exists to bring like-minded House members together to promote a strong, principled legislative agenda that will limit government, strengthen our national defense, boost America's economy, preserve traditional values and balance our budget.

The RSC provides the tools and research that members of Congress need to craft and advance policies that will benefit the American people. It also provides a forum for like-minded members to join together to support common causes and challenge the status quo. By doing so, the RSC ensures that conservatives have a powerful voice on every issue coming before the House, whether it is the economy, health care, defense, social safety net reform, or Washington's dangerous, out-of-control spending.

We believe that the appropriate role of a limited government is to protect liberty, opportunity, and security, and that it is the responsibility of this generation to preserve them for the next. We believe that more government is the problem, not the sol
