Also Yang and Gabbard are not lawyers, maybe this is why I've been drawn to these candidates. :wonder:

To be fair Yang practiced law for like 6 months hated it and quit to become an entrepreneur.

Counter-point: Trump is not a lawyer and is a shitty president.  :]

 

Also shouldn't you want the people in charge of making laws to, you know, like, know the law? :|

That's the equivalent of saying a doctor shouldn't go to medical school and should rely on the help of his nurses and staff to accurately do his job. We shouldn't be putting non-qualified people in these positions.

I do think lawyers are overrepresented but I don't think there's anything wrong with lawyers becoming politicians. 

 

There's good and bad people in every profession obviously

Um no.. Understanding the laws is not like being a doctor.

We need more STEM in politics, but I'm not going to avoid voting for anybody just because they're a lawyer. 

True

 

But I'm not voting for some nerd just because he's a scientist either. 

 

How about we start looking at the content of people's character.

Cooke is trying really hard to find the proper one-dimensional angle.

 

Whatsherface has the LONGEST hair.  Hey, maybe that'll work.

 

OOPS, no, I think Marianne Williamson has her beat on that one.

So you ignored his character when voting for him? :interesting:

 

 

and now you see it's important to look at his character.  So you did learn something just like I said.

False equivalencies you mean? :smugd:

"Juris Doctor" literally means "Teacher of Law", while the Latin for "Doctor of Jurisprudence"—Jurisprudentiae Doctor—literally means "Teacher of Legal Knowledge"

 

You were saying? :tophat2:

Yeah, for sure. I wouldn't vote for anybody just because of their job just like I wouldn't vote against them for the same reason.
