One thing that has become so crystal clear even the blind can see it, is that while Republicans appeal to American values, love of country, the Founding Fathers and so on, they don't really give a shit about average people like you and me. They are mercenaries who have sold their souls to do the work of greedy multi-billion dollar corporations whose wealth has been built on the backs of ordinary people.
The thing that gets me is not even their misaligned interests, though: it's the dishonesty. So you can imagine how much I would prefer it if they had the balls to try to pass legislation that only The Onion is honest and ballsy enough to propose:
Now that's American! :)
