Democratic Party: Overlawyered

Why do Republicans tend to look to the free market for solutions while Democrats insist on passing more laws? 

...the tactics of "legislation by litigation" ... should be profoundly anathematic to a free society.
By increments, the need for lawyers has been extended to every aspect of human life, and the law schools themselves have metastatically expanded. In a sense, our entire society has been criminalized, by lawyers adding to myriad laws that impinge not only on criminals, but on everybody.
Democrats are Stinky with Lawyers
This is a point brought home to me by an amusing item a friend forwarded this week, comparing Democrat to Republican party in the United States.
The Democrat leadership is all lawyers, and has been for some time. Barack Obama, lawyer; Michelle Obama, lawyer; Hillary Clinton, lawyer; Bill Clinton, lawyer; Harry Reid, lawyer; Nancy Pelosi, lawyer; and so forth.

All Democrat presidential candidates since 1984, lawyers -- except Al Gore, who somehow failed to graduate from law school.
  Republicans are more diverse
Compare, if you will, the Republican leadership over the last while, in White House and Congress.

The last Republican lawyer to make president was Gerald Ford. Instead: movie actor, spy chief, businessman, successively. Last election: an old soldier, and a PTA lady.

Look back at the leaders of the so-called "Republican revolution" in Congress: Newt Gingrich, history professor; Tom Delay, pest exterminator; Dick Armey, economist; Bill Frist, heart surgeon. (And note what the Democrat lawyers did to get rid of them.)
In a nation of hammers, every problem looks like a nail...
In a government ruled by lawyers, every citizen looks like a criminal, and every problem can be solved by one more law...

oooooo that is good!

That's what I'm talkin' about! The solution creates the problem. Everything becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

The only true solution is "leave it alone."
.... in French this is "laissez-faire"...

Hey Bud,

Seeings as I get the last word in for awhile, I simply restate you are a Hero in my book.

You'z got a small but valuable following because you go out on limbs and challenge others to follow in greater awareness of the evil that dwells amoungst us.

Thank you for ALL you have given me over the last couple of months. Yah did alot to help me broaden my awareness and intellectual growth.

Keep up the fine work, we may never know who we are helping when we try, but I can assure you that, if you don't try no one will be helped.

I'll try to stay in touch but I've been touched by something that I don't want to miss a moment with. Kinda like the Grace gift.

God Bless You Dude, I figger U'z deserving.

Now that I think about it your are absolutely right!! How did I miss that?

As everyone knows lawyers are nothing but blood-sucking vermin. This explains the havoc, the arrogance and condescendence of the current administration. It's a shame that the public cannot overrule their authority and position and boot them all out of office.

the last paragraph says it all Silver..amen!

Thanks! I know some lawyers, Leticia, so I wouldn't lump them all in the same category. I'm not trying to demonize anyone, merely point out that we have too many lawyers in government and not enough people from other walks of life.

Too many lawyers spoil the government broth! How about that?

Jaded: Please do stay in touch. Gotta keep the priorities straight. God bless!

I posted something similar to this about a month or two ago.

It figures that the majority of Democrats are lawyers, they make the best liars.

Silverfiddle said...

... Only they don't call it lying. They call it crafting alternative truths...

... sad but true.
