Lawyers and who they Represent

WOW !!!!! This nails it on the head as to why this country is going to hell in a hand basket!

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 pocket"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
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 nominationas 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, largeretail 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 leg al 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 Americais 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 Americans. Most
Americans know that a republic in which every major
government action must be blessed by nine unelected
judges is not what Washingtonintended in 1789. Most
Americans grasp that we cannot fight a war when ACLU
lawsuits snap at the heels of our defenders. MostAmericans 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 congressseveral times in the last several years to limit punitive damages inridiculous 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 that97% 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!

PS....Thanks for sending this to me Jan........I hope others will pass it on.
