The rest is to busy doing actual life, instead of politics and buisnes.

You don't think lawyers make good lawmakers? It's not like they're law experts or anything...
But more diversity wouldn't be a bad thing.

I'm waiting for politicians that have Associate's Degrees in things like Welding and Auto/Body Mechanics. Then we might just have somebody that gives a good and proper **** about the people.

Blue collar master race. Dirty white collar peasants.

Lawyers know the current body of laws better than anyone else, not to mention they fully understand the complex system of jurisdiction among the different levels of government. In addition, lawyers are trained to speak with substantial volume and argue without losing composure. Scientists, educators, and people of other occupations theoretically contribute to this by voting for congressmen, albeit the system for re-electing congressmen isn't perfect yet. But having congressmen who do not study law isn't a solution.

I don't know if a scientist would make a good senator since that aren't well versed in law and politics. However i think it would help if politicians actually knew some science which half of them don't, like this great man who's on the House Science Committee.

Is it at all possible that the reason is because those are the kinds of skills that allow someone to become a congress man. Listen, guys, just because Neil Degrasse Tyson said it, doesn't mean it's true. He's a scientist, not a politician. Really, he just proved the point I am trying to make here.
