Consortium of rabbis enjoins South Carolina to weigh Romney carefully

"America is on the brink of collapse economicaly and morally. Capitalism alone cannot save it. No amount of financial tinkering can save a country which is morally bankrupt: that is what we learn from the decline and fall of the great empires of history."

We all remember the story of Jonah and Nineveh. The prophet warned that G-D had decreed the destruction of the city in forty days.
 
America's fate will likely be determined in the South Carolina Presidential Primary January 21. The man who the voters choose will probably become the Republican Presidential nominee, the man charged with defeating President Obama and reversing the moral and economic freefall he and his allies have encouraged.
 
One leading candidate is a businessman whose basic concern is money and power. In a recent televised Republican presidential debate, Governor Romney, a dangerous homosexualist, boasted that he will continue to pander to the lowest elements of American society in many areas, including appointment to the (Supreme) court(s).
 
The scary part is not that Romney "came out of the closet" politically, but that the Hannitys and Limbaughs failed us by not discussing the implications of Romney's stance. Endless defense of "Capitalism" for days on end; nary 10 minutes about morality and Supreme Court nominations. FOR SHAME!
 
Another candidate in that debate took the opposite position. He condemned the murder of defenseless babies, openly defied the rampant immorality promoted in the media, etc., and clearly pointed out the connection between America's financial and military success and its historical commitment to the Biblical principles of jurisprudence and morality. (Compare this to Romney's homosexualist record chronicled in Amy Contrada's book, "Mitt Romney's Deception," and Romneycare funding of Planned Parenthood abortion.)
 
If America is to regain G-D's grace and rebuild our ruined economy, it is crucial that South Carolina actively reject Governor Romney's previous record and future aspirations. Choose the right man. The man who has lived and shares our Biblical values, the moral man with the uncompromising moral positions who will thus bring G-D's blessings, once again, to our society.
 
 America is on the brink of collapse economically and morally. Capitalism alone can not save it. No amount of financial tinkering can save a country which is morally bankrupt-that is what we learn from the decline and fall of the great empires of history.
 
America became great, because it acknowledged G-D in every aspect of its public life-on the dollar bill, on public buildings, and in the schools-G-D as the author of America's liberty and national success. G-dly values comprised the public and private moral code of America and Americans.
 
And G-D blessed this nation with an abundance of wealth and greatness unparalleled in human history.
 
But, over the last 50 years, secular libertines have succeeded in gradually excluding G-D and His moral code and value from the public square-from our schools, from our law, and from our public institutions.
 
It is up to the religious leaders and followers of South Carolina and other primary states to elevate the moral records of the candidates to the "primary" position of importance. Heed the message of Nineveh: We do right by G-D, He will do right by us!
 
The time is short. We are being judged. Will we choose wisely?

The above represents the feelings of many Rabbis in their capacity as private religious citizens. Nothing above is to be construed as an organizational endorsement. It is rather a plea to leaders to emphasize the records and statements of various candidates with regard to the moral issues and Supreme Court appointments.
