"America is in trouble... not from without, but from within! The Central Government has become too powerful. Citizens fear the Government. This is wrong. This is dangerous! I know the Government covered-up and promulgated LIES about Waco, Ruby Ridge, Pan Am Flight 103, Hoffa, and J.F.K. The Government knew I was right when I called Janet Reno a traitor. Janet Reno sold us out when she refused to investigate a $10-million payoff to the Democratic Party from a general in the Red Chinese Army (no less!). Think about it! And the Government knew that I had known why Reno was forced to betray America! I’m proud that I tried to do something about it! Someday the truth will come out. (I hope China never attacks us!)"
James A. Traficant, Jr.
(1941- ) U.S. Representative from Ohio
Letter from the prison cell of former Congressman and political prisoner, Jim Traficant, November 2003

Reader comments about this quote:
I wont rate the quote. But this man Traficant was expelled from Congress after being convicted of taking bribes, filing false tax returns and racketerring. He did seven years in jail. And the editor of this sirt calls him a political prisoner, hmm.

    Traficant seems to have been discredited either by his own actions or by way of being silenced. Either way, whether he's telling the truth or not (Most of it IS true), he can not be used for any sort of validation...not anymore.

    Fantastic I seem to agree with Carlton on something. While I believe bipartisanship goes against every thing he stands for since such folk as he think in absolute right terms it is still refreshing. But nice talking to you again J.

    I'm not a "rightist" Waffler. I'm a Constitutionalist. There's a huge difference but the left can't seem to see that far.

    Even if this was true it pales in comparison to the crimes perpetrated by Reagan and Bush Sr. and Jr.

    I'll give Trafficant some credit here even if it's only that of the 'Broken Clock' and 'Blind Squirrel' variety.

    Dig more. He had much better quote then this about the US corporation being bankrupt.
