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
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 nati on.
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.
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!
Please -- DO PASS THIS ON!!!
