“Once upon a time, 75-80 percent of the members of Congress were men that had served in combat, served in a uniform. I think this country would be even greater if we went back and tapped that resource of those men and women who have raised their right hand and were willing to lay down their lives for this country,” – Col.Alan West 
– The Bottom Line –
As usual Col. West is spot on. And I will take it one step further; “Once upon a time, 75-80 percent of the members of Congress were men that were NOT lawyers! And now 75-80% of all of Washington is made up of lawyers who never served a day for anyone but themselves. No business experience and certainly no military experience. Is there anyone besides the members of The Lawyer Class who think that lawyers ever could make better leaders than men who offered their lives for us?
You can call them anything you like. Call them Republicans, Democrats, Progressives, Independents, Politicians, Judges, Congressman, Senators, Legislators, Public Servants, etc. But the one fact and common denominator remains; they are all (with few exceptions) 
Anyway you do the math. America is now ruled 100% by LAWYERS! 
Yes, ‘once upon a time in America’ the people had representation in their government. Now the only group of people represented are lawyers. Once upon a time our government had three distinct branches, now all three are controlled by the lawyer class. And we all know what that means:
Fortunately this once upon a time story can be lived again here in America. It’s actually pretty simple if the voters would just wake up and get their heads out of the sand.
Here’s a walk down memory lane in America
Once upon a time…
Patrice Lewis tells fairy tale of once-great nation
Let me tell you a story, a fairy tale of a once-great nation called America.
Once upon a time …
Once upon a time, we could send our children to school with the full expectation that they would receive a superb education. When my mother – who was raised dirt-poor in the bayous of Louisiana in the ’30s and ’40s – attended school, she emerged from the 12th grade fully educated to the level of many college graduates today.
Once upon a time, we let kids be kids according to their nature. Boys could roughhouse without criticism. Girls could play dolls without being told they “should” grow up to be doctors and lawyers because “they could be anything they wanted” (except, presumably, a housewife).
Once upon a time, we could teach our kids about the Second Amendment. Firearms were part of the cultural mentality (cops versus robbers, etc.), and no one thought we were breeding little psychopaths. Instead, we knew we were breeding future warriors and protectors.
Once upon a time, we could run a business with minimal governmental interference and bureaucratic red tape. “Some regulation is useful,” writes John Stossel. “But when we passively accept government regulation of everything, thinking we’re protecting people from evil corporations run amok, we’re really making life harder for ordinary people. Every profession, from cab driving to floral arrangement, is now burdened with complex rules.”
