Lawyers in politics.....
This is very interesting! I never thought about it this way.

The Lawyers' Party,

By Bruce Walker

The Democratic Party has become the Lawyers Party.

Barack 0bama was a lawyer. Michelle 0bama was a lawyer.

Hillary Clinton is a lawyer. Bill Clinton is a lawyer.

John Edwards is a lawyer. Elizabeth Edwards was a lawyer.

Every Democrat nominee since 1984 went to law school

(although Gore did not graduate).

Every Democrat vice presidentia l nominee since 1976, except for Lloyd Bentsen,

went to law school.

Look at leaders of the Democrat Party in Congress:

Harry Reid is a lawyer.

Nancy Pelosi is a lawyer.

The Republican Party is different.

President Bush is a businessman.

Vice President Cheney is a businessman.

The leaders of the Republican Revolution:

Newt Gingrich was a history professor.

Tom Delay was an exterminator.

Dick Armey was an economist.

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 Ronald Reagan in 1976.

The Republican Party is made up of real people doing real work,

who are often the targets of lawyers.

The Democrat Party is made up of lawyers.

Democrats mock and scorn men who create wealth,

like 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 0bama 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!

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!

The United States has 5% of the world’s population
and 66% of the world's lawyers!
That explains a LOT.

I had good fortune to have lunch with a customer who moved here from Canada. His Wife works as a Doctor and has for many years both in Canada and here in the US. She had never been hit with a lawsuit in Canada, but she has been hit by a few lawsuits already here....

Your heath insurance doesn't just cover medicine... much of it goes to lawyers, and litigation insurance.
