Hope is great, but Freedom is the only thing that will save the country.
Taking away our privileges takes away our creativity and our ambition.  I believe that smoking is wrong, but I respect an adults right to choose.  This country is great because it provides opportunity for those people who are willing to take a chance.  Our economy will get stronger as long as the government allows the citizens to have a fair chance.  Our health care system will get better as young minds create technological solutions that are more affordable.
Obama is a fantastic man, but he thinks the government has a responsibility to take care of everyone.  I believe the government has the responsibility to make sure we have the chance to take care of ourselves and each other.

Obama is supposedly above it all, and I just don't buy it.  He's out there trying to get votes just like everyone else who runs for president.  The president can't really fix health care.  The president wouldn't even be able to make the post office as good as Fed Ex or UPS.  One of the best ways to improve the health care system is to improve the overall health of the citizens.  The health care system would probably improve significantly if we reduced the amount of people who were overweight or addicted to cigarettes. Do you want a president who tries to regulate fast food and make smoking illegal?

I'm a conservative-leaning Independant.  I really want to know why so many people believe that Obama can deliver on his promises.  What if he reads intelligence after he becomes president that convinces him we shouldn't pull out of Iraq?  What will he do?
What if he crunches the numbers and realizes that the government shouldn't be in control of health care?  Will he still keep his promise?  At least Hillary has failed at trying to reform health care.  Obama hasn't ever been involved in a national corporation let alone a national health care system, where does he get off thinking he can lead the charge?

Law School Applications / "Should you really be a lawyer?"
« on: March 11, 2008, 05:44:18 PM »
I read "Should you really be a lawyer?"  by Deborah Schneider and it didn't really help me at all.  I feel like it should be called "You shouldn't be a lawyer, unless you're crazy, or you've worked for a law-firm before"
I already work with contracts all day, and I have to deal with three-foot-tall stacks of paperwork, so I know I can handle that.
I don't really care to hear "what makes a good lawyer" but please give me your comments on this question: What kind of person likes being a lawyer?

Law School Applications / Re: THE MAIL CALL THREAD

That's true.  My first two choices haven't rejected anyone on LSN.  The choice is completely different for me because I'd really like to go to KU, but I don't really want to spend the money to drive 1000 miles when I haven't heard back from the 2 schools that can compete.   I guess I should be careful though, it may be cheaper to drive out there now before Gas goes to 4 bucks a gallon.

I guess I should be grateful that i've heard back from some of the schools.  I don't think 2 months is a long time, but it seems like the further away the school is, the faster they are to let me know.

Law School Applications / Re: THE MAIL CALL THREAD

I don't understand why it's taking so many schools more than 2 months to get back to me.  It will especially suck if they wait two or three months and then just waitlist or reject me.  Do any of you have an idea about why students on LSN with both lower and higher scores have heard back, when most of their applications were completed after mine?

1059
Have any of you heard back from Gonzaga?   A lot of people on LSN completed their applications a lot later than me and have already heard back.  Some people with higher number, and some with lower numbers.

I haven't talked to them about that, but on their website it says that I need to prove that my purpose for moving to Kansas is something other than Education.  My wife will be working full-time and paying kansas state taxes.  Hopefully that will help.
