The system is rigged and corrupt. Even though most Americans are neither registered Dems or Reps., only officials from both of these party machines sit on all Ohio BOEs. They have a vested interested in making sure their stranglehold on election outcomes is not challenged by non-party candidates. This is not the democracy born over 234 years ago. None of our founding fathers were Dems or Reps. They must be rolling in their graves today.

Anyone contesting the corrupt two-party system will have ballot "problems", and in Trafficant's case jail "problems". We do not have fair and open elections when voters are denied choices.
