Too Many Lawyers Are Ruining Our Country

"I don't think you can make a lawyer honest by an act of legislature. You've got to work on his conscience. And his lack of conscience is what makes him a lawyer." --Will Rogers

You have probably noticed the proliferation of laws with each passing year. With all these laws, many financial benefits are derived by the legal system in the process of their enforcement.

This spills over into the family law system whereby it is a monstrous cash-cow that milks the parties and sucks the family assets out of them to pay their fees. [Read Dr. Charles E. Corry's article on "How To Make Lawyers Rich And Destroy Civilization."]

The family law system is a system that is in itself a self-policing and self-perpetuating entity. The lawyers in the legislature make the ever-increasing number of rules that feed a growing legal profession's appetite with laws that create adversarial relationships requiring lawyers to handle them. These adversarial proceedings are then taken to a court, administered by a lawyer-turned-judge to rule in such a way as to retain jurisdiction [such as retained when lifetime alimony is granted] on the adversarial parties thus insuring a tentacle-enfolding stranglehold on the parties for the rest of their lives. This process is a self-serving way to provide job security for the legal profession.

An interesting commentary can be seen in the following article which talks about the role of lawyers in our government which affects and touches on just about every aspect of our lives.

The Lawyers' Party
Written by Bruce Walker for the American Thinker on March 17, 2008

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 America is too great. When House Democrats sue America in order to hamstring our efforts to learn what our enemies are planning to do to use, then the role of litigation in America has become crushing. [READ MORE]
