I don't think people like that even care about hypocrisy. It's the "I've got mine; screw you," attitude that they seem to think is not only acceptable but laudable.
My Republican brother has worked for the FAA all is life, has the best health care available and the government even sells his house for him when transferred to another area yet he constantly screams about us "socialists". Go figure. Those types not only lack self awareness they have no appreciation for irony and that's why they're so damned stupid. You can't even point out their hypocrisy to them.
By the way, isn't it interesting how people from the same family can have such different political philosophies? I also have a brother who's very right-wing in his attitudes. I don't get it.
