As a freshman Congressman in 1985, Traficant recognized the difficulty of getting time to speak on the House Floor so he devised a way to be heard by creating one minute speeches so he could represent his District and the American people.
America's Last Minuteman is a collection of these compelling, thought-provoking, and often humorous speeches which gave Congressman Traficant national recognition, a worldwide following and the continuing support of many of the people he represented for seventeen years in northeastern Ohio.

If America today had several hundred Congressman with the fortitude and courage to tell it the way it is like Congressman Traficant did on the house floor back in the 80's and 90's, Americans would surely be better off. His book is a treasure of reprints of the Congressional Record transcripts of his 1 minute House floor speeches he made while serving Ohio as a Congressman. Nicely divided into sections devoted to an array of mostly poltical topics, the reader will realize that Jim was telling the truth and predicting the events of today over 20 years ago. Mr. Traficant writes a contemporary summary at the end of each section of speech transcripts. You may not agree with everything he says, yet people of all political viewpoints will certainly find many common viewpoints with his remarks. A must read for any follower of politics.
