Some formidable thinkers check this site out from time to time. Please point out any flaws in this argument. It’s based on my axiomatic assumption that anything contradicting itself cannot be true. Or right.
“Socialized medicine” is the big thing right now, but don’t forget that statists seek to socialize energy, housing, transportating…and don’t forget that banning toys from Happy Meals is “food justice”.
Turnabout is fair play. More than fair, actually, because the industry I have in mind must be socialized first, for the sake of justice and freedom.
Progressives…you pretend to care about those things, right?
Then we have to socialize the legal industry. FIRST. It controls the socialization of everything else, right? And leaders lead by example, tyrants rule by fiat. Thus no statist gets to argue for socializing anything without their argument being first applied to lawyers.
Don’t let them.
Obama defended his takeover, in part, by claiming surgeons regularly performed unnecessary surgery just to make more money.
Guess there’s no such thing as an unnecessary lawsuit, eh? Unlike M.D.s, attorneys would never stoop to scrabbling for other people’s money. See, lawyers like Obama and his pals are trustworthy.
Ah, no need to belabor the point. I fully support the socialized law we already have. That is, tax-supported public defenders for the poor. The competent ones are no doubt underpaid. Let’s trim fat from the lawsuit-slingers and pay the good guys more. The legal industry is unique in that wage and price controls would improve things greatly for everyone but war-mongering lawyers and the remoras who ride them.
Even private attorneys are in a sense agents of the state. Judges aren’t permitted profiteering from their position. Cops sure aren’t. So why are lawyers allowed to do what they seek to deny doctors?
John Edwards thinks this is a horrible idea. Which tells you how truly awesome it is.
Any downside to the argument? I mean, I know leftists will respond by calling you names and changing the subject. That’s why I don’t deal with them personally. Just wondering if it’s a stick you’d care to poke in a progessive eye.
