18. Greed And Arrogance
There's those who only see the world in black and white...winning and losing...having and controlling. For GOOPers they want/need power to assure their dominance and protecting their power structure...the military/industrial complex. Their party is formed from the top down...trickling down the power and money to their kind...and if you're a "good repugnican", you get a piece of the corporate welfare.

Next is arrogance...a proud trait to many. It's creating a "superiority" that is really a fear of anything and everything that threatens the party's power...or specifically the power of white, middle aged men. It plays on the old stereotypes of the 1950's "nuclear" family as if it ever really existed and somehow sets forth some order as to how the "world should be". It's a nice easy world to fit into and then you drift into the parallel universe...where the white man is the "victim" and that everyone is out to take their money and power.
