About the Author
Rabbi Aryeh Spero's articles have appeared in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Times, National Review, Human Events, and numerous publications across the country. He has been interviewed on Fox News by Neil Cavuto, Megyn Kelly, and Stuart Varney, on Glenn Beck's TV program, and on radio by Laura Ingraham, Michael Savage, and is regularly featured on The Washington Times Morning Show. Rabbi Spero has testified before Congress and spoken at a meeting of the National Press Club. He has served congregations in Ohio, Manhattan, and Long Island. He's a devoted husband and father. Rabbi Spero has been invited to speak to policy makers, candidates, and elected officials in the halls of Congress and in the Executive Branch regarding the moral and religious dimensions of legislation being considered. In the mid-1990s he co-founded a conservative think tank of Black and Jewish political conservatives. He was the first rabbi to endorse Ronald Reagan for President in public newspaper ads around the country.

The Judeo-Christian philosophy sees people as individuals -- unlike isms such as marxist materialism that sees people as classes that can be molded by government rather than individuals with free will. Our foundation is unlike Islam and other religions, for our philosophy views people as of equal worth. The book is balanced, however, for no human endeavor is perfect, such as in diplomacy and war, where some actions have a moral grounding, while others simply never will achieve the desired outcome. I will not go into the logic, you need to read the book for that, but the explanations are clear.
If you are a conservative, you may need to improve your understanding. If you are a liberal, you by definition don't understand what conservatives mean when they talk of freedom. You think it is talk about doing what you want at the expense of others, but you are wrong. (As a personal aside, it astounds me the people who fight to come here to enjoy what our unique foundation provides, then work to create the same cesspool they abandoned.)
This book is an easy read, each chapter addresses a different subject, from marriage, diplomacy, taxation, social welfare, and so on. The book also discusses logic behind various moral stands and actions, such as when compassion is appropriate and when it is not. I am halfway through, so at this point, there are no specific recommendations to "Push Back." But I have concluded that I will be less reticent to speak my mind politically. One disappointment is I expected to see references to historical material that is addressed, but this book is more like a series of talks. On the other hand, if you are moderately aware of the news, you don't need the references.
