You Get What You Vote For...
I suppose most people understand that lawyers make a living by unflinchingly asserting half-truths (at best).
And wholeheartedly, avidly, defending either one side, or the opposite side of a case, depending only on who pays them.
Certainly avoiding any search for balance, compromise, truth, justice or happy outcome.
Probably most people have noticed, or have no excuse for not noticing, that a very large number of the representatives they elect, not to mention an overwhelming percentage of presidents, prime-ministers & their wives & families, are lawyers.
And yet they are still surprised by the results...
Parting thot: "Mothers all want their sons to grow up to be President, but they don't want them to become politicians in the process." - John F Kennedy
