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 do not add any value to our economy, on the contrary:  See ‘America’s Vampires‘  

Is the Democratic Party really the ‘Lawyers Party’?  Of course it is but unfortunately that is only the beginning of the story.  Bruce Walker in the post below goes on to identify the people and the facts that support his argument and he is right on all of it except he leaves out the most prominent fact of all;  all the branches, executive, legislative  and judicial,  of both the State and the Federal governments are dominated by lawyers – of BOTH parties.

Of course the Republican lawyers would be the better pick for the country because they are more in tune with business and ‘the business of America is business’.   Nevertheless, they are lawyers and they are trained and educated to think differently than ‘we the people’:  ( See GLOOG ).

It is ‘beyond belief’ how this “800 pound elephant in the room”  is totally ignored and overlooked 24/7 in all of the media!   I mean think about it.  These media ‘pundits’ talk day and night, 7 days a week about politics and the ‘cancer’ that is destroying America BUT NOT ANY MENTION about the ‘ Tumor ‘ that is causing the cancer!!  And it’s as simple as 8th grade algebra;  only when you discover the common denominator will you be able to solve  the multiple problems. Therein lies the reason that this country has been gradually losing it’s greatness and it’s ‘health’.

Lawyers have been, over the last 4 decades, slowly taking control of America.   As stated above; lawyers now have total control of all the branches of both the State and the Federal governments.   There can be no separation of powers when one group controls all of the branches of government.   Although its proposed function as a check on the other 2 branches was theoretically sound, The Supreme Court was a mistake.  This was recognized as far back as 1809 by none other than Thomas Jefferson when he commented on the the Marbury v. Madison decision.  (Supreme Court under Chief Justice Marshall ruled that The Court could decide which laws passed by the legislatures/people were ‘Constitutiomnal or not.’  In other words The Supreme Court under (then) 6 lawyers could decide exactly what laws ere allowed in America)    Jefferson  disagreed with Marshall’s reasoning in the case, saying that if this view of judicial power became accepted, it would be “placing us under the despotism of an oligarchy.”

Well Jefferson was right about The Court but it is even worse than he prophesied.  The judicial branch was indeed controlled by lawyers but the control of the other two branches by lawyers today has cemented the control of our country by a select group of people, yes an Oligarchy.   ( See GLOOG )

The Lawyers’ Party

By Bruce Walker on October 3, 2010

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.

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!
