[QUOTE=Big Blocker;2232116]YOu refer to the TRIAL LAWYERS! as if that in itself is a compelling argument.
I suppose by comparison if some corporate lawyers, or consulting type lawfirm such as Giuliani was a named partner in, supported a candidate, that would not only not bother you, you would be all for that.
Make your argument. If you have one.
My argument is sure Edwards is a lawyer. So are other candidates.
[B]But he does not take money from lobbyists. Others do.[/B]
your response is once again laughable and in typical liberal form when challenged to back up your post with evidence you do a nice dance around the facts....again; here's your posts:
[QUOTE=Big Blocker;2230426]Ftr, Edwards is not the candidate of the lobbyists and special interests.[/QUOTE]
Cynicism can become an excuse for inaction. You need to think about that.
[B]I have followed Edwards's candidacy quite closely. He has refused to take money from lobbyists. This is a fact. What "different lobbyists" are you referring to?
If you are referring to money he gets from other lawyers, it is true that he gets a large percentage of their support, but a lot goes to other candidates as well. In any event it is not coming in the form of the quid pro quo one gets invovled with in accepting money from lobbyists. It is also true that most of the other candidates are also lawyers. [/B]
The point of greatest concern to me is that we need to see some real effort made to reform health care, and Edwards recognizes that candidates who take money from the drug companies, the medical companies and health care interests will tend to serve those interests more than those of the American people as a whole.[/QUOTE]
are the Trial Lawyers Association not lobbyists??? or are you infering edwards has not taken millions in campaign contributions from them??? or are you infering it really doesn't count because other candidates take money from the TLA????
[QUOTE]Btw, do you think it a good thing when candidates take money from lobbyists? What do you think the lobbyists are giving them money for?[/QUOTE]
lobbyists give money to candidates and parties for the same reason unions do- to serve their self interests...
