One of the biggest mysteries to me is the consistent support by Jewish voters for Democrats, who could, frankly, give a d*mn about Israel, while Republicans, like Mitt Romney, remain the staunchest of supporters for the threatened state of Israel.
Love or hate his politics, Romney’s vocal support for Israel as a contender for the world’s top job, has challenged the incumbent and many Americans to rediscover their own understanding of the United States’ special relationship with the Jewish state.
My theory is that liberalism has replaced Judaism as the religion of choice for far too many Jews. Shame. Not only are they wrong about whether liberalism works to accomplish the goals they desire (liberalism is demonstrably deficient in accomplishing those goals), but they are in fact furthering the goals of the staunchest opponents of a safe and stable Israel. Shame. Politics should never become your religion. And you should never hold beliefs, political or religious, that have results that are so different from the promises you signed up for. Liberalism has failed every place it was tried. Every place. Christianity and Judaism, the foundation of this country, have succeeded, because they recognize the God-given rights of man. Liberalism substitutes the “needs” of society for those God-given rights. And it fails. Every time it is tried.
My message to the Jewish vote is simple: it is time to recognize that liberalism is not a religion, and even if it was, it has failed. Your actual religious views are better matched by supporting Republicans than by Democrats. Period.
