An Interesting Take on Lawyers
We live in a system constructed by lawyers, managed and operated by lawyers, for the benefit of lawyers.

An Interesting Take on Lawyers

Shakespeare's exact line

''The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers,''
 ''Henry VI,'' Part II, act IV, Scene II, Line 73.


Every Democrat presidential nominee since 1984 went to law school

(although Gore did not graduate).

Every Democrat vice presidential nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd
Bentsen, went to law school.
Barack Obama was a lawyer. Michelle Obama was a lawyer
Hillary Clinton was a lawyer. Bill Clinton was a lawyer.
John Edwards is a lawyer. Elizabeth Edwards was a lawyer.
Look at leaders of the Democrat Party in Congress:
Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer is a lawyer.
Ex-Senator Harry Reid is a lawyer.
The Republican Party is different.

President Trump is a businessman.
President Bush 1 and 2 were businessmen.
Vice President Cheney is a businessman.
President Eisenhower was a 5 star General Officer.
The leaders of the Republican Revolution:
Newt Gingrich was a history professor.
Tom Delay was an exterminator.
Dick Armey was an economist.
Ex-House Minority Leader Boehner was a plastic manufacturer.
The former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is a heart surgeon.
Who   was the last Republican president who was a lawyer?

Gerald Ford, who left office 31 years ago and who barely won the
Republican nomination as a sitting president, running against actor
Ronald Reagan in 1976.

The Republican Party is made up of real people doing real work, who
are often the targets of lawyers.

This is very interesting. I never thought about it this way.

The Democrat Party is made up of lawyers.

Democrats mock and scorn men who create wealth, like Trump, Bush and
Cheney, or who heal the sick like Frist, or who immerse themselves in
history like Gingrich.
The Lawyers Party sees these sorts of people, who provide goods and
services that people want, as the enemies of America ..
And, so we have seen the procession of official enemies, in the eyes
of the Lawyers Party, grow.
Against whom do Hillary and Obama rail?....Pharmaceutical companies,
oil companies, hospitals, manufacturers, fast food restaurant chains,
large retail businesses, bankers, and anyone producing anything of
value in our nation.
This is the natural consequence of viewing everything through the eyes
of lawyers.

Lawyers solve problems by successfully representing their clients, in
this case the American people. Lawyers seek to have new laws passed,
they seek to win lawsuits, they press appellate courts to overturn
precedent, and lawyers always parse language to favor their side.

Confined to the narrow practice of law, that is fine. But it is an
awful way to govern a great nation.

When politicians, as lawyers, begin to view some Americans as clients
and other Americans as opposing parties, then the role of the legal
system in our life becomes all-consuming.
Some Americans become adverse parties of our very government. We are
not all litigants in some vast social class-action suit.
We   are citizens of a republic that promises us a great deal of freedom
from laws, from courts, and from lawyers.

Today, we are drowning in laws; we are contorted by judicial
decisions; we are driven to distraction by omnipresent lawyers in all
parts of our once private lives.
America has a place for laws and lawyers, but that place is modest and
reasonable, not vast and unchecked.

When the most important decision for our next president is whom he
will appoint to the Supreme Court, the role of lawyers and the law in
America is too big.

When House Democrats sue America in order to hamstring our efforts to
learn what our enemies are planning to do to us, then the role of
litigation in America has become crushing.

Perhaps Americans will understand that change cannot be brought to our
nation by those lawyers who already largely dictate American society
and business.

Perhaps Americans will see that hope does not come from the mouths of
lawyers but from personal dreams nourished by hard work.

Perhaps Americans will embrace the truth that more lawyers with more
power will only make our problems worse.

The United States has 5% of the world's population and 66% of the
world's lawyers! There are more lawyers in Manhattan than there are
in Japan.
Tort (Legal) reform legislation has been introduced in congress
several times in the last several years to limit punitive damages in
ridiculous lawsuits such as spilling hot coffee on yourself and suing
the establishment that sold it to you and also to limit punitive
damages in huge medical malpractice lawsuits.
This legislation has continually been blocked from even being voted on
by the Democrat Party.

When you see that 97% of the political contributions from the
American Trial Lawyers Association go to the Democrat Party , then
you realize who is responsible for our medical and product costs being
so high .
