    Try davening in a Yekke or Sefardi minyan, where they also do a lot of slow singing in unison. It will take time to learn the nusach, but you will grow to love it, and it is certainly better than davening in a Conservative Synagogue. (Better not to daven at all than to daven in a Conservative place.)

    As Torah Jews we shouldn’t be having “our” political party

    You are obligated to fulfill your Kesuba from the moment you get married. If you can afford to support your wife while learning, keep on learning. If not, then you should be doing whatever reasonable hishtadlus you can to earn more money.

    I don’t know you, but I would assume that if you are saying kaddish for someone who has no one else to say kaddish for them, you are not such a “certified rasha gamur”.

    I don’t know any source that it is a segulah for parnassah, but it is a mitzvah mideoraysa. Is that good enough?

    “the only place where those words are found is in Aleinu”?
    The entire fifth perek of Gittin and a large part of the 4th perek are devoted to enactments that Chazal made “mipnei tikun ha’olam”, which basically means to make the world a better place. You can argue about what constitutes Tikun Olam, but don’t deny that the concept exists!

    The growing numbers of the Chareidi community versus shrinking numbers of the MO community prove nothing other than different attitudes to family planning. Most people do not give thought to values and hashkofos, they just remain in the community they they were born in.
