OpEd: Get Lawyers (New Nobility) Out Of Washington



theodore  M I R A L D I.


If anyone believes the revolt against Trump by Establishment Conservatives and Donors is about Trump's credentials, you might very well be a Democrat.

This blindside on a Republican candidate who received the green light from the party, has nothing to do the with American People, or beating Hillary Clinton. This is solely about the Donor
Base run by Lawyers, and the Lawyer Lobbyists flexing their meal ticket, bought and payed for by your tax dollars. They are the New Nobility.

Unfortunately Lawyers have no Hippocratic Oath, and if they did, it would surely be rewritten letting themselves off the hook as they now do in Congress in contradiction to the will of the people, and the Constitution.

Here is one possibility that will even the playing field:

 Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution

"Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States."

Lawyers have become the new nobility replacing those we fought so valiantly to depose in our War for Independence.

Let's be clear, the prevailing narrative regarding Lawyers is, "if their mouths are moving they must be lying," doesn't sound so funny any longer.

Isn't that exactly what we are seeing in Washington. Men and women who by the very nature of their profession is to win at any cost. How can that be in compliance with the Constitution? The moral responsibility that we expect from elected officials are at risk when they themselves look to subvert the laws. Taking responsibility for our behaviors makes us a better nation. Does that not also apply to our leaders?

How else could there be any sense sabotaging a candidate, because he isn't Republican enough. There is no logic to make this a rational position. Losing to Hillary Clinton will destroy our way of life for generations, if not in perpetuity. Is protecting our nation no longer our primary mission?

What's ailing the parasites is the possibility of a real job that has nothing to to with public power, and access to our nations resources. It's not by magical thinking that politicians retire from public office into positions with organizations who rely on lobbyists to get what they want. It's employment made in hell and games our system against the public.

Our nation can afford to hire lawyers to act in our behalf. It would be best for the nation to stop electing them to office. Real life experience makes one a better leader!
