"According to the Youngstown Vindicator, former U.S. Rep. James A. Traficant Jr. filed nominating petitions Monday as an independent candidate for the 17th Congressional District on a platform of repealing the 16th amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

The 17th District includes Akron and the seat is currently held by former Traficant staffer and Democrat U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan of Niles."

i'd vote for him.

I hope

that he also adds repeal of the 17th Amendment to his platform. He would be a great lunchmate with Dr. Paul. Maybe the good doctor could convince him to drop the Flat Tax idea that Traficant talks about.

I thought he was for the fair

I thought he was for the fair tax? Didn't know he advocated a flat tax. Wish he would just say, like Ron Paul does, end the IRS and cut spending. No Fair Tax needed.
