    It's easy to see why the large majority of the left are lawyers. They even had to ask the definition of "is".

    I'm not going to spend a half hour on that nonsense. I'll just leave you with this, which exemplifies your party:

    yeah figured you wouldn't be able to. No original thoughts on the issue, no insights. Just a music box for noise machine set on loop.

    I can define all those terms but I'm not going to jump through your self-serving hoops and spend a half hour to an hour appeasing your folly. Liberalism doesn't work. And one of the reasons it doesn't work is their lack of godly wisdom and godly values.

    where the heck does this statistic come from? A large majority of the left are lawyers? How do you figure? Given the population of the U.S. and generally accepted ratio of right/center/left, and ignoring the 'large' modifier the left would have to have somewhere in the vicinity of 50 million lawyers. only metric I have been able come up with was a harvard law research report which estimates about 2 millions lawyers in the U.S in total. report

    I mean you really have to have a brain the size of a peanut to have either bought into this or come up with it.

    Why not do more research on the subject before you make a post or use schoolyard taunts?

    Lol like there is a difference. Congress works for the rich. D or R doesn't really matter.

    It seems to matter a great deal. Democrats prefer Ivy League lawyers rather than working class people and there is ample evidence of that..

    There is plenty of evidence that both parties are working for the rich. To condemn one party while ignoring the other who is doing the same thing seems kind of silly.

    So, people thought that republicans of congress, and that republicans in general were wealthy, not so, according to this report.
    Nobody would mistake the average Republican with being wealthy. They come from red states, which with key exceptions are economically under developed relative to blue states.

    The article is empty rhetoric. Fiscal policies that benefit the country's largest industries are mostly region neutral. It doesn't matter where you come from, or in most cases which party you are in, because lobbyists buy their political connections by the bundle, through their influence on one or both of the two major parties. Rarely by the individual politician.
