Wouldn't you want lawyers making laws? It's their field. You want painters painting and scientists researching and engineers building things, so you would want lawyers making laws. The logical thing would be to have scientists and engineers and everyone else as advisers to inform the lawyers.

I think he's suggesting a system like the House of Lords we have in the UK: An unelected selection of scientists, businessmen, lawyers, other professionals e.t.c. that check over the laws that the main, elected house (the House of Commons) tries to make.

I know "unelected" makes it sounds bad, but it helps to prevent populist ************ from having completely free-reign in parliament.

The senators and congressmen are supposed to be the ones who represent everybody else so don't you think it would be a better place if you had people with different opinions forming laws and such and not just people with the same background in education which has warped their minds into basically all thinking generally the same things.

Instead of having engineers, scientists and everyone else advising the lawyers, I would rather have these people form unions, elect their representatives and those representatives would then decide the laws in between themselves AND be advised by lawyers, not the other way around. Lawyers would provide the "you can" or "you cannot do that" (as well as have a representative of their own, of course), and would serve as "technical support" for the law makers.

Of course this is just a quick idea, but then again there is no perfect system.

but being president isn't only about being learned in law. its about ethics, economics, running public education, etc. It would make sense that in a time like this we would have a president who's specialty is economics.

Every president has an economic adviser. They will obviously know quite a bit about economics, but they will never be the best in the field, so they have to rely on aid from elsewhere.

A president isn't expected to be the master of everything.

which is totally true. but a leader should be representative of the problems he must fix. in these times it would be fantastic to see someone like that. not that i don't the current president is a bad president or even a bad person. he may just not be the right person for the right time.
