>The end of America: Why Romney lost 
>January 1, 2013
>Exclusive: Pamela Geller traces death of the republic to 2 short words
>The United States of America was created as an 
>independent nation whose founding ideal was the 
>principle of individual rights. Freedom. Ayn 
>Rand said that “freedom, in a political context, 
>means freedom from government coercion.” America 
>was the first moral government based on 
>individual rights, the nation of the Enlightenment.
>In this age of Obama, that ideal has been tossed aside for “free stuff.”
>I have, for some timme, struggled with the new 
>reality: America void of her reason, existing 
>without the reason for her existence, her 
>morality. It did not seem possible. And yet what 
>now seems impossible is that America ever was. 
>As we revert back to the age of the primitive, 
>the fact that America happened at all is nothing short of a miracle.
>The United States of America was the rational man’s shining hour.
>Rabbi Steven Pruzansky of Congregation Bnai 
>Yeshurun in Teaneck, N.J., recently 
>analysis of the 2012 presidential election that 
>is the best thing I have read on Romney’s 
>election loss and the broader question of the loss of America.
>“It is a different world,” wrote Pruzansky, “and 
>a different America. Obama is part of that 
>different America, knows it, and knows how to 
>tap into it. That is why he won.” What kind of 
>different America? Pruzansky’s explanation is 
>devastating: “Romney lost,” he writes, “because 
>the conservative virtues - the traditional 
>American virtues - of liberty, hard work, free 
>enterprise, private initiative and aspirations 
>to moral greatness - no longer inspire or 
>animate a majority of the electorate. The notion 
>of the ‘Reagan Democrat’ is one cliché that 
>should be permanently retired. Ronald Reagan 
>himself could not win an election in today’s 
>America. The simplest reason why Romney lost was 
>because it is impossible to compete against free stuff.”
>It is impossible to compete against “free 
>stuff.” As Pruzansky explains: “The adults among 
>the 47,000,000 on food stamps clearly recognized 
>for whom they should vote, and so they did, by 
>the tens of millions; those who - courtesy of 
>Obama - receive two full years of of 
>unemployment benefits (which, of course, both 
>disincentivizes looking for work and also 
>motivates people to work off the books while 
>collecting their windfall) surely know for whom 
>to vote; so too those who anticipate ‘free’ 
>health care, who expect the government to pay 
>their mortgages, who look for the government to 
>give them jobs. The lure of free stuff is irresistible.”
>And given Obama’s relentless hostility to 
>Israel, Pruzansky says, “this election should be 
>a wake-up call to Jews. There is no permanent 
>empire, nor is there is an enduring haven for 
>Jews anywhere in the exile. The American empire 
>began to decline in 2007, and the deterioration 
>has been exacerbated in the last five years. 
>This election only hastens that decline. Society 
>is permeated with sloth, greed, envy and 
>materialistic excess. It has lost its moorings 
>and its moral foundations. The takers outnumber 
>the givers, and that will only increase in years 
>to come.” His conclusion for American Jews is 
>stark: “We have about a decade, perhaps 15 
>years, to leave with dignity and without stress.”
>What was once unthinkable is now not just 
>thinkable, but entirely possible. When I was a 
>child, I remember sitting in the backseat of the 
>family car listening in on my parents’ 
>conversation. I am not sure what led to the 
>following exchange, but I never forgot it. My 
>father said, “Nothing is forever.” And my mother 
>said, “Nothing?” He repeated: “Nothing.” And my 
>mother thought for a moment and asked, “Not even 
>America?” He said, “Not even America.”
>At that time the idea that America could fall 
>was inconceivable to her (and to me). America - freedom - was forever.
>But that is not so. AAnd scarier still is the 
>tenuous status of Jews in America. It’s hard not 
>to draw parallels to persecuted Jews in 
>once-friendly nations and their subsequent 
>persecution, expulsion and slaughter. To think 
>that Poland was once the Israel of Europe. 
>Millions of Jews made Poland their home and had 
>a long history there of over a thousand years. 
>And in three short years - complete annihilation.
>German Jews, meanwhhile, were so very vested in 
>the motherland they considered themselves 
>Germans before Jews. They were war heroes for Germany in World War I.
>How long do Jews have in Obama’s America? How 
>long before we can’t walk down the street with a 
>kippah or a Star of David? This is already 
>reality for Belgium Jews, Swedish Jews and 
>French Jews. Large portions of Norway are already Judenrein.
>Proud Jews at Berkeley or the University of 
>California Irvine can give you a glimpse of how 
>things can turn, quickly, in America as well. 
>Now that America itself has turned, everything is up for grabs.
>“To be a socialist,” said Josef Goebbels, “is to 
>submit the I to the thou; socialism is 
>sacrificing the individual to the whole.”
