Why does the Republican Party hate America?

The Alaskan Independence Party quotes [party founder Joe] Vogler as stating "I'm an Alaskan, not an American. I've got no use for America or her damned institutions."[3] [4]

Wait for it...

Lynnette Clark, the chair of the AIP, told ABC News that current Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, the presumptive 2008 Republican Party nominee for Vice President of the United States, attended the state party's 1994 convention, a year after party founder and would-be secessionist Joe Vogler died.[6][7] Palin recorded a message welcoming party members to its 2008 convention as part of her duties as Governor of Alaska.

On September 2, 2008, the political website Talking Points Memo reported that Palin's husband, Todd Palin, was a member from 1995 through 2002.[8]

Bearing those two things in mind, then, why does the Republican Party hate America?
