Unhappy Democrats: Party of Lawyers -vs- GOP: Party of Producers

The Problem Is Identified...

Johnny Carson nailed lawyers with one of his "how cold was it?" jokes! "It was so cold that lawyers were running around with their hands in their own pockets!!"
This is very interesting! I never thought about it this way. Perhaps this is why so many physicians are conservatives or republicans.

The Democratic Party has become the Lawyers' Party.
  • Barack Obama is a lawyer.
  • Michelle Obama is a lawyer.
  • Hillary Clinton is a lawyer.
  • Bill Clinton is a lawyer.
  • John Edwards is a lawyer.
  • Elizabeth Edwards is a lawyer.

Every Democrat 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.

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 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 lawyers use criminal prosecution as a continuation of politics by other means, as happened in the lynching of Scooter Libby and Tom Delay, then the power of lawyers in America is too great. 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.

We cannot expect the Lawyers' Party to provide real change, real reform or real hope in America Most Americans know that a republic in which every major government action must be blessed by nine unelected judges is not what Washington intended in 1789. Most Americans grasp that we cannot fight a war when ACLU lawsuits snap at the heels of our defenders. Most Americans intuit that more lawyers and judges will not restore declining moral values or spark the spirit of enterprise in our economy.

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 goes to the Democrat Party, then you realize who is responsible for our medical and product costs being so high!

Actually I was in the political science department there and FOUGHT with every one of my professors for 4 years. They let me out with a degree despite my efforts

Default Re: Democrats: Party of Lawyers -vs- GOP: Party of Producers

From my college experiences (Business major), I would put academicians in the same cesspool as lawyers. Being taught by people who have no practical experience was insane, and the tests in most non-technical classes reflected the professor's viewpoints rather than the textbook. Aside from the math (and that was fuzzy at best in accounting classes), when I got my first job I was told to forget everything I learned in school, and that I would be re-taught as to how things REALLY work in business. Such was life in the 60's. My kids have told me that it was worse for them, because liberal professors would flunk you if you had conservative viewpoints. They soon learned the game and just went with the flow, and had a book burning when they graduated. Today they are good, productive Conservatives making damn good money. No pantywaist bottom feeding liberals in my brood.

There is no course for that . It comes naturally and it crosses all party ,race ,and religious barriers . Dishonesty has always been there ,as well as greed .
I think a lot of the blame falls on those that elect these clowns .

And a lot of them actually have advanced college degrees. My wife had (past tense) clients (Husband & wife both college grads) that voted for Obama because they got sucked into the whole change bullshit. Even had the Obama sticker on their yellow Hummer (tells you a lot there). Today, both are unemployed and are losing their house. They admit they thought it was too good to be true, but thought good times were just around the corner. Their unemployment is almost at its end, and they are mortgaged to the hilt. Foreclosure time...
