I got an email with some information written by Bruce Walker*. That's what it says, though I don't know if the name is real. The stats listed are very interesting and I thought I'd share them with you.
Here you go:
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 Dem. vice presidential nominee since 1976, except Lloyd Bentsen, went to law school. Look at leaders of the Dem Party in Congress. Harry Reid is a lawyer. Nancy Pelosi is a lawyer.
The Republican Party is different. President Bush is a businessman. VP Cheney is a businessman. Newt Gingrich was a history professor. Tom Delay was an exterminator. dick Armey was an economist. John Boehner was a plastic manufacturer. Bill Frist is a heart surgeon. Who was the last Republican president who was a lawyer? Gerald Ford who left office 31 years ago.
The Republican Party is made up of real people doing real work whom are often the targets of lawyers.
The Lawyers' Party sees these sorts of people who provide goods and serves that people want, as the enemies of America. 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 for our nation.
Today we are drowning in laws. We are contorted by judicial decisions. We are driven to distraction by omnipresent lawyers in all areas of our once private lives. America has a place for laws and lawyers, but that place should be modest and reasonable, not vast and unchecked.
When the most important decision for our president is whom he will appoint to the Supreme court the role of lawyers and the law in America is too broad.
When House Democrats sue America (Arizona) 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. 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. Americans know that we cannot fight a war when ACLU lawsuits snap at the heels of our defenders.
The U. S. has 5% of the worlds population and 66% of the worlds 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 Lawyer's Association goes to the Democrat Party, then you realize who is responsible for our medical and product costs being so high!
So there it is, Readers. I thought it was an interesting viewpoint. No wonder there is no TORT REFORM in OBAMACARE and the Dems fought the Reps attempts to include it.
