To: Vindiciae Contra TyrannoSCOTUS
There is another thing that needs changing regarding the members of Congress: There should not be a single member of Congress who has passed any State Bar Exam (making them an attorney). Yes, they may have studied law in college, but once the Bar is passed they are effectively members of the Judicial Branch. Therefore, they should not be allowed to serve in the Legislative Branch of government.
This foundational problem has led to atrocities such as the 13th and 17th Amendments. The founders intended for the laws of the land to be for the common man, not those who spoke Latin, and not for only those who belonged to a "club" such as the Bar. As soon as lawyers began to populate the Congress, the laws they wrote started becoming obtuse - and started moving away from the daily lives of the populace.
The damages done by members of the Bar to this nation are incalculable.

"...once the Bar is passed they are effectively members of the Judicial Branch. Therefore, they should not be allowed to serve in the Legislative Branch of government."
Clubbiness has always been a fault of the Judiciary. That's how they rightfully earn the oligarchy reference. That the "upper class" adhere to the illusion of genetic superiority has always mystified me. Much like America would carry on without the services of illegal immigrants, it would be better cared for with people who were more knowledgable than the lucky folks with money and selfish agendas. Class warfare, at this point, is only self-destructive when the barbarians are settling in wherever they want to. Get over yourselves, wealthy people, and help correct these problems before there's nothing left to defend.
