9. Hypocrisy, especially of the religious sort
Hypocrisy and phoniness characterize just about every R issue, but especially the moral and economic ones. At most 30% of voters really believe in these issues, the rest of us are a little frightened. Turn off the religious right and you have instant majority status in most states.

Fiscal responsibility and individual freedoms are being betrayed by the right wing. We must reverse the impression that Dems are responsible for the moral decay in society, crime, and general incivility.
