    most of the red tape corporations deal with was created by lawyers. too many lawyers in politics-not enough business people. Look at the current clown in the Oval Office--a leftwing lawyer who knows about as much about business as he does about how to convert a 7-10 split spare

    I think it is lawyer's that cause the problem as much as is the system that allows lawyers to make such immoral decisions. Lawyers are just trying to make interpretations of our rules, regulations and historical court cases. While some lawyers can get very creative and be a part of immorality, the system also allows this to happen ... so essentially, these atrocities that happen are partly the systems fault and partly immoral lawyers fault ... the system should be fixed and law students should have to show better moral conviction

    Those with most influence in government are those with money to contribute. It is no secret that the way laws are formed is by the group with the most influence to codify there personal beliefs and interests into law. I think this is a good poll and question, but I do doubt there are many wealthy people participating in it so the results are not as important as the discussions it brings up.

    In the last six months this board has been infected by an onslaught of "bash the rich" whinuses. Its getting to the point where it appears this board becomes a place where those who are envious and hateful of the rich come to complain

    Are we not considering the criminal justice system as part of the government? if So your statement is correct otherwise....

    In many countries those who feel they are wronged engage in vendetta or even murder. In the USA they call an attorney

    Have you ever told us if you have a job and what it is?
