America is paralyzed by trial lawyers
Did you hear about the Florida lifeguard who left his assigned "zone" in order to save a drowning man a few hundred yards down the beach? His company fired him for breaking their rules because they knew the next time anybody drowned on any beach in Florida, a pack of skeevy trial lawyers would sue them out of business for not saving that guy.
Do you want to live in a nation where citizens are paralyzed into inaction by fear of absurd law suits brought by shameless, skulking lawyers whose appetite for other peoples' money is limitless, and against whom we have no defense because they run the government? Me neither.
