I learned about James Traficant about the same time I learned about Ron Paul in the mid 90's. They became my favorite Congressmen from their respective parties. I was a republican at the time so I followed Ron Paul more closely. I lost touch with both of them after 9-11. By 2004, I was done with politics period. Ron Paul cured my apathy in 2007. The revolution needs a breath of fresh air and I think James Traficant is that new energy. If Ron Paul is the greatest statesman then James Traficant is the greatest lawyer. We need a lawyer to convict the criminals who are running things. His entire political carreer has been to expose corruption at the top. If you don't know much about James Traficant, he has a pretty amazing biography but he is best seen in video on the House floor, in Congressional hearing and in his post prison interviews. He is my Presidential candidate for 2012. Check him out.
