“This is a must read for all Jews.”
—Dr. Laura Schlessinger
“Persuasive, important, and politically incorrect.”
“The basic beliefs of Judaism are one thing; the way Jews vote is very different. Jews and Judaism prosper in a world of economic and human freedom. The jews in the United States overwhelmingly vote for measures designed to limit economic and human freedom. Mr. Sternberg gives an extraordinarily clear and simple analysis of this situation and urges Jews to re-examine their voting position.”
This book makes a powerful argument that the principles of Judaism, its laws, traditions, and commandments, are at odds with the realities of modern liberalism. Modern liberalism, with its reliance on the powers of government to solve all of society’s problems, its downgrading of the importance of morality and ethics, and its insistence that people are not really responsible for their own actions, is a distinct departure from traditional Jewish teachings. Larry F. Sternberg chronicles how President Roosevelt invoked the Jewish tradition of charity to woo them to the liberal cause during the Great Depression. The author then uses verses from the Bible and the Talmud, as well as documented historical evidence, to prove that Jews are better served by America’s conservative leadership, despite his coreligionists’ almost unanimous support of liberal politicians. Topics discussed include government interference, gun control, abortion, affirmative action, and healthcare.
